The Ballerina by KmyeChan The Ballerina by KmyeChan
A friend of mine, who is a dancer and an amazing artist, requested me to draw her a ballerina... so here it is! :D

My very first picture using my brand-new Pantone Tria markers!!!!
I'm sooooo happy I've finally bought them... I'm not perfect with them yet, but they're so incredibly easy and comfortable to use! (Though again, I've always been better with traditional media than with digital...). I love them to bits. Expect a lot of traditional art from me in the next few weeks.... :mwahaha:

I know that the hands suck badly, and I pretty screwed up the face coloring because I started there (yeah, I know, bad idea), and I wasn't having a very good grip on the markers yet, they bleeded and blended more than I expected. So yeah.
But overall, I'm pretty happy with how this came out! :giggle:

[EDIT] Sorry for the reposting. I was told that there were some white strokes left on the border of the picture, so I fixed that up. :)

[Made with Staedtler pigment liners, black marker, grey Pantone Tria markers, colour ink]
[DO NOT use, reproduce or redistribute. I'm planning to use this a a layout for my own website, so please do not use it at any costs. Thanks.]

This is a very beautiful and interesting piece of work. It reminds me of helena- my chemical romance...

You are too amazing. I love ballet, so this is probably one of my favorites. You have to be one of the most amazing artists, I've ever encountered. You have an endless imagination.

pretty awsome work, especially as you are just getting your new markers.
rocker9317 Featured By Owner Nov 29, 2009
Lindo dibujo, lo que le da la originalidad son especificamente esos colores, tipo sombreados o opacos, a mi parecer le queda perfect!!
S3m0la Featured By Owner Nov 25, 2009
wooow !!! very sweet :D beautiful !!!!
KoriFaye Featured By Owner Nov 14, 2009

i hope she'll give you credit. i can't stand it when people copy someone's art and claim it as theirs.
KmyeChan Featured By Owner Nov 16, 2009  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Thanks for the message! :)
I think it's been removed, though, because I can't access it.
KoriFaye Featured By Owner Nov 16, 2009
good. it was just a crappy copy of your picture, but a very exact one, and i can't have that without seeing any credit to the original artist. >.> ^-^

Love it !! :heart: I love her dress design :eager: a lot of details *O^
SweetnessSilver Featured By Owner Oct 6, 2009
This is amazing!
How do you get markers to do that xD
I love the colors
KmyeChan Featured By Owner Oct 7, 2009  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Thanks! :)
They're special art markers, not regular water-based markers you find in any shop, that's why. ;)
SweetnessSilver Featured By Owner Oct 7, 2009
It's awesome:D

fowlest Featured By Owner Nov 1, 2008
its beautiful! i love the way the layering of the dress came out
hell-kaiser-jessi Featured By Owner Oct 30, 2008
I figure I should -ask- before I do this, so -- ah, here goes. XD

Do you mind if I actually physically -make- that dress? It's a gorgeous design (and probably going to be the end of me) and I would love to try my hand at making it to wear.

Thanks! ♥
KmyeChan Featured By Owner Oct 30, 2008  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Please do, no problem at all! :D
As long as you're not planning to mass-produce it or something, obviously!
I'd love to see some pictures once you're done!
hell-kaiser-jessi Featured By Owner Oct 30, 2008
XD I don't have the motivation to mass-produce, I'd just like to wear it to like, cosplay masquerades and military formals and such like that.

Thank you so much for your permission!

Mishie-Moo Featured By Owner Sep 15, 2008
I am just using this as a reference to what I woud like to do, enjoy the dress. Not sure if I will use the idea, but just so as you are aware. Thanks
When-Zombies-DIE Featured By Owner Sep 13, 2008
All of the details on the top, the dress, the contrast, I love it all. This is one of my favorites by you. And at least you can draw hands >_< The hands that I draw probably don't even count as hands, they're so atrocious.
