Original: Time Keeper by Risachantag Original: Time Keeper by Risachantag
*Full view please*

This is an original piece for my manga circle's artbook (which we'll be selling at Waicon 2006, in Perth).

*laughs* I swear my muse must be sadistic; every time I get an idea for an original piece it seems to necessitate me drawing horrendous amounts of detail (like the 20+ cogs in this picture). I love designing mechanical wings, it's something I wanted to give another try at doing.

Detail shots can be found here: Time Keeper Detail

...and step by step tutorial can be found here: Step by Step

-Approx 12 hours, over three days
-Photoshop CS2 & Wacom Tablet

Whoa that's awesome! I love the 20+ cogs! lol  And they definitely seem to be HIS wings because they're not strapped on anywhere. Something tells me there's much more to this picture than meets the eye  Clap

Love the light in this. I just don't understand how you can produce such a complex image in 12 hours of work. What's your secret? :D

I think my favorite part of this picture is all the potential stories that flow through my mind when I look at it. You can tell that something significant is going on, that the winged fellow is leaving and there's something the girl is about to say.

Perhaps she just finished repairing his wings and wants him to stay longer to make sure they're working properly. Or maybe he's the first modified human being she's seen, and he just happened to be resting on the balcony. Or maybe she's the daughter of the mad scientist who created him and "accidentally" left his room unlocked so he wouldn't have to suffer further experimentation.

There are so many possibilities!

Wow... That ridiculous amount of detail is ridiculously incredible to look at. I think the wings turned out lovely, as did the... almost remorseful expression of the male. The use of lights and darks is impressive. Wonderful work!
