Percabeth in Action

By
"I'm just saying, every freaking time we-"
"Shhht, Seaweed breain! You want it to hear us? Sneaking doesn't work if you're talking so loud."
"Sorry, Wise Girl. Alright, let's kick some monster ass, shall we?"
That only got Annabeth to roll her eyes at him but she readied her knife anyway, ready to sprint around the corner and attack.


Man, my titles get more uncreative with the amount of pics I do :XD:. Quote is made up but I'm thinking to maybe write a fanfiction about this...We'll see XD. If I do, i'll upload a link here ^^

Anyway, I had much fun with it, this is the sketch of Annabeth I really wanted to finish, I had fun doing it even though it took hours, especially Percy's face was killing me because Annabeth never looked like she was glancing in his direction so I just had to make him turn his back to the viewer *shrug* Oh well, you're see him more often in my works so you'll just have to bear with it here. I had a hard time with the background, even though it's so simple now. I tried something fancier but failed so yeah, this is what it turned out to be!

Hope you like it!
Love ya ~ :heart: :tighthug:

The lineart is fantastic, it's got a smooth flow to it that very difficult to accomplish. I also admire the lighting, many inexperienced artists place the light source straight on the character, or to one entire side. However, the colouring is a very primitive form of cel-shading, and instead of just a highlight and a darker/saturated base colour you should add some midtones as well. One thing I noticed is that there is virtually no reflective light at all, and I recommend some on Annabeth and Percy's shirt. The background, which is a brick wall, is lightened because of the light source so there should be some reflective light if Annabeth is directly in front of it. The wall is finely executed, and the details are wonderful. I like the feeling of the piece as well, the emotion it seems to give off fits the entire scenario. The structure of Annabeth seems good, there are some mistakes with proportions but essentially, it is very good.

Overall, an excellent piece with minimal mistakes, well done.

First, thank you very much for the critique! :hug:
Mh, you're right that the colouring isn't really detailed but that is probably because in this drawing, the light colour is the base colour and the rest are two shades which are normally far deeper because I add both of them to create depth. I understand what you mean with midtones but with this lightning, it was rather difficult without making it look too bright, since they are both hiding in the shadows and the light comes from around the corner (the brick wall is not lighten btw, it is in complete shadow). That's also why there are no reflections ^^ I normally add those only on the skin since clothes rarely really shimmer, only if it's leather or stuff like that. Yeah, so that's why xP Those now sound like excuses but I wanted you to understand why I did some of the stuff I did ^^

Besides that, you probably mean that her leg looks too short? Yeah well, I just noticed that afterwards xD. Maybe I'll change it later ^^. Other anatomy mistakes? ^^
Thanks again for telling me, it really helps :hug:

Another great job from you <img src="e.deviantart.net/emoticons/s/s…" width="15" height="15" alt=":)" title=":) (Smile)"/> The technique is amazing, the color is great and I love the title. I also love the description you put along with this. It made me laugh. I love the Annabeth's facial expression in this. She looks very exasperated which is good for this scene. I also love Percy in this even though it's just mostly his back. In a way you can tell he has that "Awww, c'mon!!" look. This is just an all together great drawing and from an amazing artist. Keep up the fantastic work and I hope to see even more in the future from you!!!

FINALLY SOMEONE DREW HER WITH THE GREY HAIR

THANK YOU
Kat-Anni's avatar
I think many people actually do this haha :D thanks yourself for the commenting :hug:
I found it very sad that Rick said in HoO the streak disappears. I thought that would be lasting all their lives but oh well...guess not.
Jolteonlove33's avatar
I HATE that it disappeared... 
(and i haven't seen anyone else draw her with grey hair)
Kat-Anni's avatar
Me too buddy. But he made so many things disappear in the second book series....like the hair and also Percy's curse. I think he realized he made Annabeth and Percy (especially Percy) too powerful to continue with new characters and not make them stand out too much so he kind of created a clean slate?? I dunno I don't really like what he did there.
Jolteonlove33's avatar
Nor did I. I didn't like that he added so many new main characters, it felt excessive.
Kat-Anni's avatar
I do like the main characters but just the way they were kinda forced on you felt strange? I dunno. They could have been just older characters from the roman camp, equally strong to Percy or smth and it wouldn't have taken away from Percy's character at all. Instead he shaved Percy off so he could be equal to them and that was just a real disservice for his character imo.
Jolteonlove33's avatar
It is a disservice to his character!

I really like Annabeth's hair and eyes. I don't know why, but I feel like they are really, really, really good. Amazing job!

Yeah, I tried out a new style of hair for her here ^^. I guess I'm going to use it again when I draw her in the future :3
