fathom by ebas fathom by ebas
this is a copic marker commission of michael turners aspen

i just started using these copic markers and they are amazing and expensive to use...i can believe the range they far there isnt a texture i havent been able to do with, water, cloth....

sorry i have been gone for so long....holidays and all u i have some news for those of u that love has moved in with that turned my life upside down..and we are now engaged...and we couldnt be more happy....needless to say i dont have as much time to post those novel long descriptions anymore....which is too bad cause i learned a lot the last few i did...i have about 12-15 full copic's under my belt which in not a lot but i feel i learned a great deal...

i was asked to do a sexy aspen for a female fan of mine and for some reason this came out...not realyl sexy at all....oh well...

the only thing not done in copic's is the sun beems that was done in white charcoal pencil and some of the bubbles were done in white paint type crap...

im very happy with this piece cause i had the balls enough to try something ive never attempted b4, im not a colorist or a painter and have done nothing similar to this....but those who watch me have read that i dont let fear stop me from growing....

it was not easy fading a blue into skin tone with markers and no experience... off to go have some sex with my fiance

go ass!!!

 Im curious, how are you scanning these? or, are they photo's with a camera?  just a color copier? The original size of this one 11x15-ish?

this is beautiful work, I have always been a fan of Turners work and I think this is an awesome representation of his character. I think the coloring looks really great as well.

i got lucky i guess, it was all new to me....but i had a very clear idea of what i wanted and it came pretty close in the end...i did doubt myself a lil in the beggining though...

i know what u mean about the time, havent really had a chance to get on a good stride with these with all the other work i have
ASkyOfAutumnTears Featured By Owner Feb 3, 2010
You're not a colorist, yet you do this?! Crazy.

ebas Featured By Owner Apr 21, 2010
wow...looks cool having it said back to me...i like it

AndrewJHarmon Featured By Owner Apr 21, 2010
I gots to print that up and post it somewhere around my desk. Fear's been winning more times than I like to admit :)
ebas Featured By Owner May 3, 2010
man, at least u are aware that u have the fear....

i found that it helps to get a sketchbook that NOBODY will see and sketch in it fearlessly in a marker and have no way of correcting ur mistakes....and make sure that no one see's this book

good luck man

AndrewJHarmon Featured By Owner May 4, 2010
Even the thought of doing that gives me anxiety! I'll give it a run though. Thanks, E, much appreciated.
