Jellybots: Lizzie

This is Lizzie :D
She's based off my friend, Lizzie (who, after I did one based on Jen, asked for her own :p) And I realize this has effectively opened the floodgates for anyone who wants a portrait (which wasn't my intention) but I'm trying not to design characters I don't actually believe in.

So here she the current scheme of things she may even be the protagonist...a young girl who doesn't quite know who to be. She's kind of a lot of crazy energy all pent-up in a very self-conscious shell. (hence the little doodles: a) has obnoxious laugh, b) is embarrassed) The kind of girl who would decorate her suit with smiling stars, but get a little shy if you brought it up. Also, she likes llamas (not pictured).

It looks so traditional.... the lines look so perfect too! How do you do it!
nicholaskole's avatar
haha- I did it all in photoshop, from start to finish. I'm glad you like it, though! I use a pressure sensitive brush on my lines and I do them without vectorizing them so that they retain *some* of the warmth of traditional work.

Gosh... It just looks so good... you must have an awesome wacom/bamboo tablet then D: Mine won't even scratch that surface!

As for vectoring :< It doesn't look right doesn't it? It feels so straight and digital when I look at it... I want to try it...But think I will prefer my tablet as well XD

(Can't wait to see more work from you!)

mmm...I actually use a cintiq, so it's a LOT easier to draw directly onto the computer.
It's funny, because Jbots really lends itself to vector- but I kind of find the exercise of imitating the clean-line look of vector work very relaxing on some weird level. And I just prefer the warmth of the result.
I can't wait to do more work I can show! For the moment, I'm really caught up with my day job...maybe soon I'll have some time to do some work on the side :)
