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.]

OMG! I finally have found you! Saw this picture eons ago somewhere and loved it, but never knew where it was from. So excited to have found it again!

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.

Lindo dibujo, lo que le da la originalidad son especificamente esos colores, tipo sombreados o opacos, a mi parecer le queda perfect!!
Saludos
