Aoba Playing Gameboy - Digital Version by Laovaan Aoba Playing Gameboy - Digital Version by Laovaan
So this is the digital version which almost killed me x'D 
It was so much work, it took almost a month Llama Emoji-65 (Blood Tears...) [V3]  

I placed 9 game references, can you name them all :D?  but be aware some are pretty difficult Llama Emoji-37 (Teehee) [V2] 




here is the copic version and also the making of  video of it  :3 Aoba Playing Gameboy - Copic Version by Laovaan

Woah so pretty, I love the look of this!~ <3
Is that a gameboy color? xD
Haven't seen one of those since I told mine like 2 years ago. xDD

Game references, I'm not too familiar so idk if I can, but Tetris, KingdomHearts, Mario, Cactaur, Pokemon Center, I take it that white dog must be off some game and that lightening bolt, and whatever that poster is at the back might be related to something. xD (Steam? maybe? Idk I don't use steam but something tirggered me to think part of that looked similar to their logo. xD) And Aoba himself I guess? xD

The shading on the jacket is perfect, pls teach me.

I love the copic/traditional version especially. It's really amazing to me how people can get marker techniques down so well.

Also I mostly play more obscure games, but I think I see final fantasy, pokemon, tetris, and mario(?).

red green purple thing is zelda,
over that mario mushroom is a butterfly, which is from life is strange also near the thunderbolt is a crystal of chrashbandicoot:) 
the rest is correct ^-^

but the thunderbolt was a trap, it is just pixel art,so no specific game  xD

Amazing! It's surprising to see that the digital version isn't very different from the traditional one (I mean the shades look so similar :O)

I saw both versions of this art piece and am amazed how well you work with both difital and traditional media! :")
The only thing that looks odd to me, is Aoba's right leg; the perspective on this one is wrong, with the upper leg (up till the knee area) being a bit too long and the lower leg part beig too short even with that intense perspective tilt. All in one though, great work! :")
