Memento

So, this is it! My first step over the gap called artistic block.

It's called Memento and is my part of a Collaboration with :iconlittle-padfoot:


And to be honest - I went through hell with this. First thing - I started drawing this in a train - and I was sitting backwards. You can tell that I got sick as hell. Next, this was the first time I re-did a whole sketch in Photoshop. I needed lots of hours! And to make it worse, I see a lot of parts in her body that are so totally not right ... and I HATE to know that there is something wrong! So I tried to fix it. Though I kind of promised myself not to, I needed to find reference pictures for her right foot and leg. It really looks more realistic now, though I still think this girl wouldn't be even able to walk ^^
And last - I was half finished, and what really made me happy was the right hand. I thought "hey, without reference and without any changes! Look at this, this looks so cool with those outlines!".
Well. Then I looked at the hand again.

Yep. Four fingers. D.A.M.N.

Believe me, it was hard.
But now - tadaaa! Here it is!

Sorry for this rant, but I am so happy that this is finally done!

Feel free to colour it, too, if you want to, just please credit me properly and give me a link to your deviation so that I can see the result! And for everybody besides :iconlittle-padfoot: :
No use outside of DA please.

For those who don't know about the easiest way to extract the lines from the white background: [link]


Have fun!

Ich finde die Konturen wirklich schön, sie sehen sehr gleichmäßig aus, und das macht es doch schon fast perfekt ^-^ vor allem wie du hinbekommen hast, dass die Konturen eine unterschiedliche Pinselstärke haben, gefällt mir auch sehr gut!

I think she looks very pretty! I love the pose, it looks so graceful. It like she's floating like Peter pan. :)
And thanks for the link to the tutorial! Whenever I want to get the lines from a sketch I use this action [link] but I never really understood how they did it! ^^;
carpenoctem410's avatar
^^ that's the easy answer! But to be honest - I found this tutorial just some weeks ago, so I did it with the tools all those years ... and that's emberassing ^^

thank you :hug: I am glad that you actually like it! I love what paths can do with outlines ^^
TheJenjineer's avatar
I prefer inking with my tablet when I can, but for really long lines I need paths! My hand is not steady enough to handle it.
carpenoctem410's avatar
I did a good mixture, too. parts I inked with my tablet, too, because the paths did look like crap. I think mixture is always best ^^
TheJenjineer's avatar
Yup, taking the best of both. :)

Ich finde es immer so schön zu erfahren, wie selbstkritisch du bist. ^^

Aber auch wenn sie deiner Meinung nach nicht laufen könnte, sieht sie wunderschön aus. :aww:
carpenoctem410's avatar
danke ^^

ich nenns nicht selbstkritisch, sondern viel zu perfektionistisch
burningBernd's avatar
Aber viel zu perfektionistisch sein ist viel besser, als wenn man sich mit irgendetwas zufriedengeben würde und dann darauf verweilt, bis einen die Zeit einholt und man erkennt, dass man nicht mehr aufholen kann.

Kurz: So bist du auf dem richtigen Weg. ^^

Oh! This is Really beautifully fluent. I wish i could paint :(

You can paint, photograph, model, you're beautiful, write really good and a killer in photoshop. IS there anything you can't do? :P
