A very late birthday present to my younger sibling in TM, プリンスアキ (who celebrates his birthday every 7th of September).
Done in watercolor, combination of wet on wet and wet on dry tech (I just assumed. lol) and took me around ten hours to finish. This piece turned to a practice sheet after sketching since I still have some trouble on doing line arts- ditched 0.05 drawing pen and turned to 0.7 ball pen and everything turned... okay.
Thank you Yefi (the ever supportive best friend), for pointing out my flaw. My hand is quite "heavy." so the lines I draw when I ink tend to be heavy too... which most of the time destroy my sketches. I promise, I'll improve in this aspect.
BELATED HAPPY BIRTHDAY, ERI
EDIT: My memory failed me and I was reminded that it's every August 7th. Fail memory, fail everything. orz
It's not supposed to look brown.;; The cat is supposed to be grey, black, and white. My scanner made the image brown. It makes me sad. Whatever. Next time, my pictures won't look gay. You still like, yes?
Yeah, I know it says it was made in September. I just recently made this account and I found this picture in my piles of paper in my room. Lol.
I just found out yesterday that one of my favorite artists and YouTubers passed away on January 25 of this year at the claws of Leukemia.
His name was Colin Wyckoff. And he was only 20 years old.
I admit that I didn't know him in person, but he meant a great deal to me. His videos were some of the most original and funniest material I have ever seen. When I stumped on his channel by accident one day in 2009, I felt like I found gold. Since then I've eagerly been waiting for his new stuff to come out. I was so sure he was going be great some day. Maybe direct his own movie. I'm sure I would have enjoyed the heck out of it. Unfortunately that is not going to happen.
EDIT 7/27/15: This was bugging me for the longest time, mostly because I didn't think it was worth changing, but now EDI has his eyelids colored in. This is a closer representation to the face he makes in Mass Defect now!
Kitty0706 was one of my favorite and funniest GMod animators that I have watched since high school. It's a shame to see him pass away like this, though. At least in the end, we all know that all he wanted to do was to make everyone laugh...and I'd say he did a pretty damn good job at doing just that.
