This is my homage to Tsukushi, Jennadelle, Mei-san, Pu-sama, Bara-chan, and Satougaki (and even Bengal, to a degree). I tried to do as much detail as I possibly freaking could. It's all on the same sheet of 8x10 paper, nothing cut and pasted in Photoshop as I sometimes need to do.
I'm always jealousy-struck by the abilities of the aforementioned artists, and I feel like everything I do falls short in several major ways. So I decided to work on something major. One way I feel I need improvement is developed detail. Another is backgrounds. This one doesn't have a full BG, but I did put all my effort into that one building. (I didn't want to highlight/shade it, or else it would complicate things.)
Sadly, the sketch started out as a not-so-perfect anime girl, which is why her face is crooked and her body is stiff, and is that a hat? If so, how teh f--- is it staying on her head? The wings look the same as in Gothic Rei, and she looks a little like Garnet. And I *STILL* cant get the hang of flowy, detailed hair (like the kind Mei-san does) so her hair literally looks like grass.
And I didn't color it fully because I tend to cover up my lines when I do that, and since I'm proud of my pencil work, I wanted to showcase it. Besides, I can't seem to get the hang of my tablet OR Painter 7. Anyone know of some good tutorials?
Enough rambling. Technical stuff.
.5mm pencil on 8x10 cardstock printer paper - 4 hours
CG with Photoshop 7 and mouse - 3 hours
knowing I finally put effort into something - priceless.
And don't try to find a meaning for the title. I just like the word discrepancy.
