Janie by mayorlight Janie by mayorlight
I really got into my zone today - the first time I have since completing my paralegal certification course.

I decided to draw one of :iconsaintfighteraqua:'s characters, so I picked Janie - someone I've been itching to draw for quite a while now.

Character Ref: [link]

Since Janie's primary weapon is a bow, I decided to sketch her drawing back an arrow. For a reference, I tracked down a sketch of an archer online (and a very nice one, I might add).

Pose Ref: [link]

When it came time to color this piece, I went with my Prismacolor pencils. As much as I love my Copics, I sometimes feel that rendering colors is a little easier with colored pencils.

Hope you like, Darrell!

You draw tummies so cool. I like all her lil' details like the bows on her stockings.

LOL. It must be all the belly dancers I draw... ;)

Indeed, the details of her costume were a worthy challenge - especially the ruffles on her skirt.

Wow, this was a n awesome surprise. I haven't been too active on DA lately and came on to find this.
Thanks so much, I really appreciate it!
And I'm not just saying this cause she's my character, but I think this is my favorite art you've done, the pencils look amazing, and the shading on her bow, arrow, skin and hair are perfect!
You have a great style, I am flattered that you made me this!!!

You have NO IDEA how long I've been wanting to draw a pic of her.

As always, I admire your character designs.
