Ace Hardlight : by a-archer by Lurking-Leanne Ace Hardlight : by a-archer by Lurking-Leanne
Now here's something 'different' :D

Before you guys say anything, no - this wasn't drawn by me. It was drawn by Adam Archer (DA username :icona-archer: ) as a commission I ordered :)

For those of you who aren't familiar with the Ratchet & Clank series; there was a 6 issue R&C Comic (which happens to be canon to the series) released last September, which finished in February this year. a-archer worked on the drawings for the comic panels :)
I really enjoyed the comic series (with issue 3 and 5 being my favourites), and not to mention; I liked the style quite a lot! Seeing all the different characters appear was cool too, including old and new (Sasha, Al, Talwyn, etc) but Ace didn't appear anywhere, besides a funny mention. But it didn't put me off, heh.

But of course, I had to get Ace in the commish, and I'm so glad I did! :dummy: he came out real awesome in his style, and I can't wait to get the original in the mail. So I can get it framed. It looks great, even without the colours (he hasn't posted it to his DA though, heh). I was going to choose the DreadZone Ace design but I like my design a bit more 8D

I also asked him if I could colour it digitally for fun and he said yes. So... here it is!
I decided not to do any intense shading, because I didn't want to spoil his original drawing. I coloured underneath his pencil drawing carefully, and added a bit of light shading and a gradient/textured background. I didn't edit his drawing at all, besides darken it a bit to make it stand out with the colours.

And uhh yeah, that's all I can say for now. Hope you guys like! Nice to work on something again after so many hours at my job lately...

I didn't know at first but then I looked at my description and noticed that I mentioned her there. So that might be why this gets picked up on the search. Even though I didn't put that as a keyword.

I was so shocked when I found out that Adam Archer actually drew this for you! But it was a commission so of course lol, but still! it is so cool that you got this off him, and Ace does look very good in his style. a shame Ace didnt appear in the R&C comics though :(

cool colouring too btw

Wow, Ace turned out nice--he actually looks kinda cute in his style. X3
Still, the coloring you used compliments his drawing nicely in my opinion. ^w^

Now that looks incredibly awesome and well done.

Archer did a spectacular job drawing Ace in his style, while you did a wonderful job colouring the piece. I tell you it's one of the most well presented commission pieces I've ever seen on DA. :D

Awesome job you two. :thumbsup:

I tried real hard to use a good colouring technique; his drawing does deserve a good colour job afterall :giggle:

But yeah I guess it did come out pretty well! Thanks for the compliments too :)

yeah, I was so hyped after he accepted it... and once I got the scan of course! :la: (I wasn't sure if he would accept a R&C character, but he does lots of other different characters in commish's XD) and now we can see what Ace may have looked like if he appeared in the comics, as you said XD

and thanks!
