Messing around with costume ideas again. I have no idea what the light balls are.

The usual, photoshop start to finish. No refs on this one. I'm not sure how long this took since I worked on it off and on between jobs. Wish I had time to paint more personal stuff, but this month's been kinda nutty.

Detail of this here: [link]

..And should she follow, will she return?

The strap of the character in the foreground with the buckle hanging in front looks like a knee.

Sorry, I just love the picture, but my eye tends to stick to odd places.

very nice...it says u used photoshop start to finish? Did ya draw it in photoshop 2? I knew some ppl who would draw it out then scan it...from there work on it in Photoshop.....just wondering.
hakubaikou's avatar
Yeah, I draw directly in photoshop.

For lineart, it's easier to draw it and scan it in, IMO. But I've stopped doing line sketches so that I can do away with the scanning. (My scanner sucks.) I'll still sketch, but it's now with colored blobs and silhouettes instead of lines.

wow, I really like the concept of that guy, he looks scary but in an awesome way. Remember me of one of my characters for my book I probably never will finnish, thought I never could make him this cool looking.
