(Copics, ink)
(15+ hours)

This took a long, long time. :P I had to do a lot of sketching, and I really wanted to make sure everything turned out perfect. :3

There's somewhat of a style change in the different views, but that's because I did the last one a while late, and by then, I felt a lot more secure about how I wanted to color this thing. ^^; That's why I like her hair more in the last one than in the first two, but I don't like her hands (darn hands!) The back view's legs kept messing me up, especially how the boots were supposed to be positioned. In the end, I probably like her jeans from the first one, her shirt design from the second one, and her hat+ boots on the third one the best. :P

oh yeah, about the character.. The character designs I have for the manga those are definitely different, because this is supposed to portray her appearance in the digital world (where, coincidentally, everything is much more realistic-looking). Ironically, it's also the world where you are able to get your hair floating like that, or pretty much anything else you wanted to do with your body. ;)

She's whimsical and eccentric in the real world, and likes to wear the clothes of dead people. Heh.. more about that later.

As always, comments and faves are much appreciated :heart:

EDIT: new name. Again. Sorry.

I just.. don't have enough words to rant about how much I like this. O___O
The color, and the poses are incredible. <3
and I liked your art before! D8
You REALLY have gotten SO much better!
(I'm certainly not saying that you weren't good before, though)

The clothing design is super impressive too.
It's all awesome!
the skintone is, again, incredible.

If you don't mind me asking... do Copics bleed allot?
I use Prisma markers... and I have a REALLY hard time getting clean lines like these!

They don't really bleed, it also depends on what thickness or heaviness of paper you use. :aww: The one I'm using bleeds outside the lines easily if you're not super careful, but the upside to that is that the color quality is so even and flowing, it's like it comes from a fountain or something.. XD

Prismas don't have the brush tip, which is the main reason they're not as good as copics. that's pretty much it.

Lol, you should know that once you've mastered realism, you can do anything~ it's sad to see people who've gone the opposite way, though.

Well, whenever I'm not busy with something like homework or piano.. ^^;
Usually something detailed like that takes me over a week because it's 15+ hours.

I've said it before and I'll say it again, but it's beyond me how this can be done with markers.
You know that you're awesome at realistically-behaving clothing (and pretty much everything else), right?

:aww: Thanks. I'm working on a super huge marker piece right now that's bigger than anything I've ever done.. so look out for that. :D

How didja like the valentine's day flowers? :meow:

The flowers? They were quite fragrant, metaphorically speaking.

Okay, three things:

1) This is really, REALLY good! You did a really great job at the perspective!

2) Where the heck do you find copic markers around here (let alone how much are they and what are they [my fiancee is looking for some and doesn't know where to get them, while I'm curious as to what they even are...])?!

and

3) Dang that took me a long time to comment...sorry about that...this piece got lost in my inbox...^^;
