Original scribble that got WAY out of hand.(see in Scrap folder.)
It's now the basis of the New manga currently underway.
And now I've finished coloring it. I'd like to say this.
It took me a month to finish this?!!! My Laziness is getting way bloated here. -_-"
There's a color experiment in this picture.
Please C&C to tell me how it go.
"And then Netage Basu the 42nd, 500th Keeper of the Key To The Hatchery, did leap upon the egg and, with a piercing wail, cried 'I care not if it shall hatch to the Evil That Devours The Universe! I'm keeping it!' And we were all very hard pressed to convince her otherwise."
Well...uh new categories are always confusing, so I put it under "anime" 'cause I draw in anime style. So there. Yeah, like that.
Someday maybe I'll post a pic that has a like one sentence description...but today is not that day! ^____^
Anyway, and I were talking about how she hasn't got any good pics from me up on her walls in her room, just two little dorky drawings and such, so I determined last night to draw her something good. Two and a half hours later, this came out, yay!
I tell you, I'm determined to learn how to do calligraphy pen for very special occasions, but my base media is always going to be regular ball point pen so far as I see. I just love how the ballpoint pen is perfectly between light and dark and it's application is smooth, yet not liquid enough to freakin' go everywhere when I just want it in one spot and stuff. Means more strokes, but more accuracy and I've been with it for like 7 years and I'll just keep loving it, I'm sure.
Anyway, at first I'd just determined to draw her something and I gave myself three requirements; that it be a "cute evil" and that it would have a gothic lolita style outfit, and that it would be on a giant egg. ^^ So that's what I started drawing, but then I turned it into part of the ancient history of the story that Luce ( my sis) and I are creating. That's what that first bit up there in the description is about. Oh! And the key was a last-minute addition that inspired me to the story part and all. I like the ribbons. K.
I was looking through a drawing book the other day and they were talking about drawing the pencil lines of form for first stage of creating a pic, then the second stage, detail lines and all, and then inking it. I remembered doing that a long long time ago, so I wanted to try it again because, although time consuming, it was terribly good fun. So I tried it on this pic and it almost killed me. I was so frustrated by all those useless lines getting in my way in there while I KNEW already what I wanted to put down with my blessed pen. And then I had to freakin' go through and erase the damned things before and around my ink so I think that the most pencil I shall ever use again shall be for forms for poses and such that I would have difficulty putting in; so other than that, it is SO back to straight pen!!!
My only regrets with black and white work is that no one else can see the colors that I do.
Here's another character portrait for the upcoming comic; the initial concept for a character named Leilani. She's the elite personal guard of a minor lord in the empire the story takes place in.
Though it's still somewhat under discussion, I think Infaela and I have agreed that bathing should be considered not only good manners in this particular culture, but almost ceremonial in its importance. So, I placed her by the bath.
Done in Photoshop 7.
EDIT: 03/10/04 6:39PM MST - Hopefully final update. Tinkered with the anatomy of her arm. Submitted a (properly sized) version to Epilogue's galleries again. Hopefully things will turn out better this time. ^^ Thanks for all of the comments~
We're reaching the final three of the best-of-the-best starfield allstars. Coming up at number 3 is a character I would think I've mostly improved in character and design throughout the years I've created him, Andy Napalm.
Andy Napalm was created very long ago, you would thinkt he first robot would've been made in the year 20XX, but no, secretly during World War II, A scientist created a subject to make the first actual artificial intelligence, howeve,r the only resource he knew was the new wave of nuclear power. However, since the war ended, the government found that he was taking way too long to finsiht he project and shut it down. Ultimately, he finished his creation before he died in the 80's, and kept his creation in captivity until years later when robotics technology was far more advanced. Andy Napalm awoke, not knowing who he was, what to do, but found knowledge with the family he stayed with afte rhis arrival. After that, he pursued a career as a security officer, then a police recruit, and as his popularity grew, he even became the security guard to the presidents guard. After he had experienced all the trials of protecting humanity, he decided that he would build his own facility of new recruits, naming it The Hyper Gladiators Police, where all new and aspiring heros could come to train and be acknowledged as great protectors of the earth.
Andy Napalm always strives to make his technology to saving the earth and it's kind by building and rebuilding his own array of weaponry. He can do a massive amount of things, has the power of flight, and also weilds super strength. The nuclear power within his body is what mainly keeps him going.
PLEASE FULL VIEW!!!!
OK... where to start... well... my friend/sister made a drawing of herself as a goddess /preistess... Here: [link] one of the ways in which to express herself... but she did it in the typical anime style... So, I was inspired to do one, myself. I thought to mysefl "Hey! I can do that, too!"
I used the style from 1 of MY FAVORITE films/series "Macross Plus". I just really liked the charecter designs in that. I based the face of this on the charecter "Lucey" and "Sharon Apple". :-D
The chareter here, it's self is of my Valour whom is the Black UniGryphon. She's a shape shifter and has 999 transformations. So, here's 1 of them.
And, since I'm putting together a colorist portfolio for Top Cow, I was studdying Color since June. The colors I used for this peice is actually based from a peice that I have in my "Favorites": [link]
It's mostlytinted grays..
When I 1st started this, I was going with a more consistnat coloring... but, as It's been sittibng there begging to be finnished, I just desided to push through it and just go for the comic book look. So, here it is. Kyle might not like tho'. :-/
* She's holding a "Ru Yi" whcih means "As You Wish" in Chinese. It has alot of signifigance and meaning to it, especially since this is a goddess.
* You can't see her feet because showing the feet in an old Chinese Style theme is Taboo! YOU NEVER EVER SHOW A WOMAN'S FOOT! Especially a Goddess!
* She wears allot of jade.... Ii'd originally plned on making it Purple and white Jade, but the colors just didn't "Pop", but the greens being of a complimentary color to Purple did! Especially in RGB coloring!
* She rides a Cloud... something Chinese gods typically do.
*She wears a sash arround her arms, something that signifies the stattus such as goddesses and various other important persons would do that would be commonly seen in Ancient chinse art... such as the Tang Dynasty period and so on....
i couldn't help myself, people have been telling me that im drawing my character always losing and the reason for that is because i didn't want to make other peoples character look weak...so im sorry.
But anyways, this picture has Najya(created by) and my character Obake, Dokuros little brother, But thank God this attack doesn't kill him, he can regenerate YAY
well i thought that this picture would be cool to draw.....so if ya don't like it well then fine....see if i care.
