The World Ends With You by AmberDust The World Ends With You by AmberDust
Fan art I did for The World Ends With You, featuring Neku and Shiki. I did also this for Deepsies' 16th birthday as I got her the game for the DS too. Haven't played it myself yet but it looks really cool! ^^

The lineart took the longest, those smooth, width-varying (sp? O.o) lines are a menace! But I got there in the end with some official art as reference and the colouring didn't take too long so I managed to finish it the night before her birthday lol! XD

I'm thinking of entering this in an anime/manga art competition at Borders next month, hopefully it'll go well! ^^

Enjoy! :P

Drawn and coloured digitally in Photoshop with a Wacom graphics tablet and some official artwork as reference.

Characters Neku and Shiki from The World Ends With You are ©Tetsuya Nomura and ©Square-Enix.
Art ©AmberDust 2008

Ha ha, although sometimes I struggle making lines smooth with a tablet! I spend ages redrawing the same line before it's just right! >.<

might I add that the lineart looks so alike to the original designs of the TWEWY characters?

Hahaha, when art is too much like the original a lot of times I wonder if they're copies . . . but this has enough small differences for you to tell it's original. Which is very good.

Thank you! Yes, it's all hand-drawn digitally without tracing, but it is difficult to make it look like the characters without referencing the original artwork. I've recently learned however, that drawing should be about bringing something new (like using a different style or medium) and not copying the original... otherwise, what's the point y'know? :)

Exactly! Your style is your identity, and if you copy someone else's style you're stealing their identity. And I just mean if you copy the whole thing. If you like the way someone draws say, a nose and you start drawing noses the same way, and you like how someone else draws their eyes and you work it into they way you draw people as well, soon you've got your own style. Hahaha, artist's philosophy.

Ha ha, yeah, I once heard a quote that all artist's are thieves... and it's sad but true! Style is not something that you can force, you have to gradually develop it. I aim to develop my own with each drawing. :)

AmberDust Featured By Owner Jul 31, 2009  Professional Digital Artist
Ha ha, well, though I'd like to say I did the varied width in one nice stroke, it actually involved drawing over the parts you want thicker over and over again til you got the effect. XD
Thanks for the comment! :D

Very nice, you've drawn them more accurately than I ever have, and I'm obsessed with the game. If you STILL haven't played it yet, I highly suggest you do, it's an amazing game -- my favorite ever.
