My bro, Tony Bancroft, and I leave for San Diego Comic Con today so if you go, look for us walking the floor (wearing matching geek-tastic "The Bancroft Bros" t-shirts) OR come to our book signing at the National Cartoonist Society booth on Fri. and Sat. (2 hours only!) I will be premiering my new "Art of Tom Bancroft" full color book- with a limited supply! Hope to see you there. Will I sell these online? Probably not, I only have a limited supply and I am saving the remainder for the CTN Expo in Burbank in Nov. Sorry.
So, I don't often do non-poster related things, but with what I've been going through I needed something to remind myself of this. I am worth existing. If I wasn't God wouldn't allow me to continue living.
The last time I had it dyed or cut was in Sept. 2010. It's been almost a year since I had it done. So I decided to cut my long hair and dye my natural brown with blonde streaks to dark red.
You can't really tell, but my hair is actually pretty short in the back. It's at about my hairline on my neck. And in the front, it goes down to my shoulder, so it's a bit of a steep angle. But I wanted something different.
I call this my GaGa hair. Though she didn't have red hair, she did have this look when she first came out, the blunt bangs and straight hair. My blonde streak era was my Rogue hair (X-MEN forever!!!)
I was going to upload this when I finished the other custom I offered for my trade set a while back, but I'm not so sure I'll ever finish the other one and I like this one... I think I did it a week ago.
So Here is Alura Again but this time as my newest ID. There is however one major change done to her and that is the Lighting !!
I will explain more in Journal later but I had a comment placed on the original image yesterday and as I read his page I noticed he had a light set for sale, well after I talked to him and saw his test renders, I knew I had to have his set, So I bought them..... All I can say is WHOA !!!!! These Lights are Amazing ... The Lights are for Daz Studio and use the Uberenvironment 2 (which I knew nothing about...lol)
The lights are amazingly easy, all I did for this render was click on the icon and it was there, all ready for me to render... now that is what I love... haha
Anyway, If you are looking for amazing lights for your renders and even if you are not, I highly recommend getting these, you will love them.... ok now I just sound like a commercial
You can get these lights from
I will say, the only postwork that I did on this was the ground shadow (I did not use a backdrop when I rendered the Image) and a little bit of the hair cause I screwed up the original and had some poke through and totally forgot before I rendered this one...lol Other than that, this is totally what came out of DS4 (free Version)
I really like her but I won't use her so I'd like to give someone else a chance to get her.
1. Do not use unless you win or buy her. I watermark for that reason, you will receive the unmarked version once it is paid for or you win. 2. Credit me and Piehugs the first time you draw them. You do not have to credit me every time to draw/use this design, however if someone asks about it, let them know I did the design and DO NOT claim that you did the design yourself. 3. Please do not sell your design once you've bought it, you may trade but please let me know the new owner. 4. Have fun with your design! Feel free to show me what you do with it (You don't have to! but I would love to see.)
Fill out the form bellow on why you should get win her for free OR offer a bribe. Art, points what ever.
-Why are you the right owner for Miss bunny? -What are your plans for her? - Anything else you'd like to say? Make your plee!
A new take on my chibi base plus a little Familiar companion.
(Don't know what a familiar is? See some of my old batches here; [link][link] )
I haven't made any Faeries in a long time, and I had the idea to do something else to follow the October theme;
This Fae is based on the October Flower, the Cosmos and her little familiar is based on the October birthstone, the Opal.
Might be fun to make these once in a while to celebrate the months.
-Rules- 1. Do not use unless you paid for it. They are watermarked for that reason, you will receive the unmarked version once it is paid for. 2. Do not claim that you created the familiar design. 3. You do not have to credit me every time to draw/use this design, however if someone asks about it, let them know I did the design and DO NOT claim that you did the design yourself. 4. Please do not sell your design once you've bought it, you may trade but please let me know the new owner. 5. Have fun with your design! Feel free to show me what you do with it (You don't have to! but I would love to see.)
Bidding will start at 400points or $4
If bidding goes over 1000pnts or $10 the winner will get a painted headshot of their Fae and a simple sketch of the Fae and Familiar.
For those of you interested I will be doing Halloween sale on my Halloween candy bites sometime between now and Halloween, keep an eye open~ It will only last a day or so~
