Shauntia Black - Copics by Dualmask Shauntia Black - Copics by Dualmask
Practiced with the inking tools and Copic markers I recently acquired.

What do you think?

Shauntia Black :icondualmask:

Sketched with HB pencil on cardstock paper, inked with a Prismacolor Premier brush pen and Copic Multiliner, and shaded with Copic sketching grays. I added the red using a colored Sharpie.

Nice drawing. A very imposing and enticing character. She reminds me of Kitana from Mortal Kombat. I'm not sure if she was the inspiration or not. Of course, she would also fit a number of other archetypes from the comic art genre. What I like about this character is that she is what you would expect from an ass-kicking female hero; muscular structure.

I like the colouring and the touch of red is...well...a nice touch.

Having said that, my attention is immediately pulled to what are some apparent anatomical errors.

1) Where the right hand is holding the hilt of the sword it would appear that you forgot to "draw through" here. In other words to draw the entire hilt and then draw the hand around it. The hand as it is here does not appear to fit naturally around the hilt.

2) The bend in the left arm appears to be too sharp or rigid. The line of the inner arm should curve more naturally. Also, check the elbow angle as it slopes up the upper arm. There is also something off about the left hand, but I'm not sure what.

3) The left hip appears too high, even given her position and stance.

Otherwise, this is quite well done.

The copics create a really interesting feel to this image- especially that streaky look on her thigh. I like that rougher look- it makes her seem in motion.

Thanks! I kind of miss working with my Copics...they're probably all dried out by now though.

Hey you are doing great as far I can see, and yes markers are a great medium to work with! I remember when I started they were not that good, but now days markers are really awesome to work with and they even blend. Anyway keep up the great work!

Thanks! They're pretty smooth indeed...quite easy to work with. That could just be because they're new though. ;)

I'm somewhat afraid to work with markers and inking pens (I've got a set of manga inking pens that I may have used only a few times) b/c if you make a mistake then you ruin the piece! :omg:

Without risk, there's no reward! I'm always experimenting with different mediums; you never know when you might stumble across that ideal tool that makes art more fun than it ever was before. If you destroy a piece, just make another one, or fix it digitally!

You make a great point. I remember that I was scared to add shading/highlights to my line work several years ago in fear of ruining the pic. Now, I look at all of my old work and shake my head thinking just how much better it would look with shading/highlights.

I have a bad habit of playing it too safe...and that often times stifle me from trying new things and growing artistically.

I could have drawn it better. Blade's too wide I think. But thanks!

Her expression, with that single streak of color falling over her face, is gorgeous. Well done!
