The Time Sweeper by MissDSanti The Time Sweeper by MissDSanti
Decided to do some "BLiNX: The Time Sweeper" fanart, this time traditionally! It was a challenge, but my colouring skills improved a lot and while I wish there was a method to make the sky gradient more smooth (with less smudge), it's probably due to the quality of my cheap pencils.

Blinx is one of my favourite games for the Xbox and I still play it even today, but the real tragedy is that the character himself reminds me of my very first cat who passed away almost three years ago. She used to be orange with white markings and green/amber eyes, and while she wasn't the nicest one in the bunch I still miss having her around... rest in peace, my little angel. :heart:

Blinx belongs to Microsoft and Artoon, I only own this artwork.

I love this color pallette very much btw. I have never played this game, but it looks like it would have been really fun and cute! The color is phenomenal, I cannot color traditionally worth a damn, I always mix them up badly. But you did the sky gradient REALLY well and the city behind him looks great. I do question the moon having a chunk missing, but I'm assuming it has something to do with the game lmao. I can't get over how awesome the eyes are tho jesus

The moon missing a big chunk is indeed from the game XD You can see the trailer here -->…

It's a cute Japanese game (of course) released for the Xbox, starring an orange cat that literally can manipulate time and is on a mission to rescue some princess. The game didn't have much success worldwide unfortunately, but it's still a good game to play even when it is hard as f*ck lmao

Also, thank you! The secret to colouring a good traditional background honestly is literally patience, because you have to paint a base colour very lightly and then add another similar colour in the same fashion over and over again. It's tedious, but it's the only way to make the drawing turn out decent, at least with me.

That trailer had the best beat of '07 :D my god, he's adorable! I guarantee you I would have played that as a kid. "a janitor? TIME SWEEPER" killed me. 

:stare: As for patience, I have next to none sometimes XD That's why a LOT of my art is almost exclusively digital, but I also greatly respect and admire the people who do traditional.
