-Kellyn- In My Hands by Aetherya -Kellyn- In My Hands by Aetherya
Was wondering if I should just replace my sketch version with this, but decided to leave both on in the end. ;)

You know I was scared to color this, but in the end, I'm glad that I did :lol:

I employed a different coloring method here, on the jacket and the pants to be specific - normally, I would lay down my base color and then do both the shading and the highlight on layers above it. Here, I started out with the brightest highlights and worked my way down. =P I think it ultimately helped me not screw up. :lol:

I also spent more time on this than I used to. :XD: Perhaps this is the way my colorings should be done from now on ^^;

*Edit: Tried out making the dark areas on the pants darker, as well as dim down the highlights on the right side of the jacket. ^^; Courtesy to *RadenWA's advice.

Anyways, Kellyn belongs to Nintendo.
Art belongs to ~Aetherya.
Media: Pencil, Adobe Photoshop CS5

This reminds me of a dream I had not long ago. o-o One of my characters was stuck in a world that was a mixture of a Batman movie and The Walking Dead and he had a gun he saved his friends with.

lol shhh nevermind :iconshiftyplz: Kellyn like a boss~ <3 :iconlikeabossplz:

The clothing folds in this are win.

his gun though... drawing things in people's hands is a pain. Back when I used to draw I could barely draw hands, let alone put something in the hands. independently the gun is fine and the hand is fine. Something about the angle of the planes seems off though.

The over all anatomy is good, and the lights and darks are good as well.

Drawing stuff in hands... Yes. Indeed. :shakefist:

Haven't noticed the thing with the gun until you mentioned it. ;) I still don't know what the correct way would be, tho... Maybe the side of the gun shouldn't be visible as much? :confused:

Thank you for pointing it out! 'w'

Owo, what's better than a badass guy in leather jacket? Specially it's KELLYN!

Heeeh, you did the leather VERY well, really. And you know what's better? I've just bought a grey slim jeans like that one!! I can pull off this look~

Though, I should say the shading on his face is kinda too extreme, as compared to the rest of his figure. When I first saw the thumbnail, I thought he was wearing mask XD And for the first time seeing Kellyn's face rendered in semi-realism style, it's kinda awkward ^^;

Either way, this is badass.

Am I glad that it looks like leather! XD I feared people might not see that I meant it to be a leather jacket. :XD:

And...

YES!!! I GOT A CRITIQUE!!! :la::boogie::dance::boogie::la: Thank you!!! :worship:

I was aiming to make the shading rather extreme for a dramatic effect. Do you think I should've shaded the rest of him more extremely to match the face? Or do you think I should have rather reduced the shading on the face? Please tell me owO

Again, thanks for pointing it out :D

As for the semi-realistickiness... That tends to happen when I draw a character one too many times. xDD

It obviously look leather. Maybe you can work on the gloves, but the jacket is fine ;)

Haha, I critique whenever something doesn't fit my eye, so it's not that I hold back or try to pamper others ;)

If you wanna go for the extreme shading, then yeah, apply it for his whole figure. Especially on his pants and below. For the jacket, just reduce the leather shine I guess.

Aaah, too many times? XD

Yep, I feel the same way about the pants. It looks like I've been shading, then abruptly left off. :XD: Woe to my artistic ADD. |||orz xD

Jk. xD

And I don't get a lot of critiques, you are pretty much the only person right now who does that for me, so I'm grateful :la:

Yep, too many times. *Can happen* when you're obsessed with a character. xD
