Eye of the Storm

Drawn with ballpoint pen and copic markers on B4 sized 210gm smooth sketch paper.

Another drawing of my character Lapis from my story the Wish Bringer.

I actually had this sketched up for a few weeks and kind of forgot about it for a while. Unfortunatly, I think the shaped of her eyes distorted and changed her expression a little bit as I re-drew it from the sketch, though it's not too bad. This was also another case of experimentation. Instead of waiting for the ink to dry completely on the line art, I applied the markers over the wet ink to create a bleeding affect, which worked nicely with her hair.

thanks.  It's a simple composition, but I tired to make it as dynamic as possible.

Interesting character you have here! She looks rather cool and icy, due to her expression and the choice of colors used. There is also a complement of the smooth and the sharp, where her wavy hair contrasts the angles of her face. She seems rather androgynous; forgive me, but I mistook her for a male at first glance and would have kept to that presumption had I not read the comments. I also mistook this one as well for a digital art at first glance. The crisp, soft, and vibrant feel give the work that kind of impression.  

Indeed, it does seem like a storm is brewing, both behind her and within her mind. Good work.

Actually this isn't the first time someone thought that she was a boy actually.  At first I intended her to be a bit tomboyish, but then again she's not totally against all things girly, she's kind of just neutral when it comes to gender issues, so I guess the term androgynous really fits her.  I'll try to develop that aspect in to her character design some more.

I do like the effect of how the black blends in with the blue. I really like the movement in her hair too. I think the shirt should have a bit more volume at the collar where it goes over the shoulders. It looks a little flat compared to the rest of it. The colour scheme is great and creates a stormy sort of atmosphere that goes well with her expression. :)

thanks.  Actually, now that you mention it, it does have a bit of a stormy atmosphere, but calm at the same time.  Like the eye of the storm
