Meet Samantha, Jazzys "older sister" :D
First of all, she isn't really my character, though the original Sam was a bit different from what I have shaped her into to fit the (let's hope so) final draft on Jazzys story.
She belongs to an Austrian girl who was I believe my only female best friend I had in my whole life, I have not seen her for several years now.. I wish I could change that, to give her this drawing and to thank her for helping me to bring Jazzy into existence.

I LOVE copics. Seriously. This finally moves into the direction I want my style with them to be. Also, I am nearing the 100 mark in terms of how many colors I have. I am an addict..

copic stuff, 3 hours.

She's so pretty. If this was colored any other way, it just wouldn't be justice for her. It's beautifully done.

ich würd gern mal die ganze geschichte zu den Lehnsherrs erfahrn/lesen. wahrscheinlich hast dus mir vor n paar jahren sogar schon erzählt aber ich habs freilich vergessen. zumindest dass Jazzy eine schwester hat is mir neu. ;D
die colo is (gewohnt) gut! :3

tja.. das ist so eine sache..
bedenkt man dass Jazzy schon fast acht jahre existiert, und die story noch nicht komplett durchgedacht ist...
Ich glaube das groesste problem ist dass mir das noetige background know-how fehlt, und die story ziemlich realistisch gefasst ist (vor allem in dem sinne von wissenschaftlich konsistent) und sich gleichzeitig mit ziemlich heiklen moralischen und politischen themen (auch wenn eher im hintergrund) beschäftigt.. ich habe aber endlich einen schritt vorwärts gewagt und versuche wenigstens das gerüst niederzuschreiben. kann ich dir schicken wenn es fertig ist :)

amazing! She is so soft compared to Jazzy. I would love see her more developed as a character.

thanks :) She is supposed to represent the humanist with a naturalistic approach, so I guess "soft" applies. maybe not too much though.. I will try develop her more :)

This is beautiful!

Everything, but I love especially the hair, and the whole coloring. :heart:

I am also a Copic addict :XD: and I have nearly 100 colors, too X3

haha so you are a fellow sufferer then :D what kind of paper do you use? I just found out that I do not like the usual copic paper because it makes the colors too bright..

You bet :D
I do use the usual Copic paper, most of the time D: but also normal paper, occasionally. I got used to both, I guess. But I like how I can kind of rely on the Copic paper to not "accidentally" make a stain on the most crucial parts, like eyes or mouths. If you know what I mean ^^;

I found out that I mostly like a really thick paper with a yellow tint - it gives the colors a watercolory feel. you can't really work with precision on it but meh. also, it sucks up all the ink ^^" I do not work with much precision (sadly, I wish I could for once pay attention to what I am drawing) so I do not really mind the stains.. I just tend to make more if the one I made accidentally stands out too much :D

Yes, the ink. That's exactly the reason why I don't just use good old-school "vykres" :<

I pay great attention to details, being the detailist psycho I am ^^; and in the end, the details are done with precision and the overall effect is practically zero, because, I don't know, the anatomy is totally wrong or something =___=;

Dude. I wish I could be as careless as you are :D

I think I am careless precisely because I am not good enough to produce anatomically consistent pictures - I just can't bring up the patience to fiddle with details (I'd like to, at least sometimes) when at the same time I know the thing is all wrong XD so I just do rough stuff.. being careless is - at least for me - easier than being detailist :)
