whew! thought i might never get back around to this, but here he is in all of his firey colorlyness. anyway, this is a character from Cross Canticle (if you haven't read that from the WIP version, heh..), and a really important one too. sadly its gonna be quite a while before we meet him, but i really wanted to draw his design out anyway :> . yes, he -is- on fire. and no, that's not why he's sad. (though.. id be sad if i was on fire.)
drawn on card stock! tools-
0.7 mechanical pencil - doesnt bake cookies. darnit!
open canvas 4+ - inking and detailing
adobe photoshop 7.0 - base colors and finishing effects/touches.
character, art, design, etc - mine!
time - i guess it churned out pretty quick once i got going, but i never keep track. aiya.
Also I wanted to let you know that after ing this almost six years ago, it still is and always has been my absolute #1 top favorite out of all of the works I've seen on DA. The way you play with light and shadow and shape in this piece always makes me smile, and the title and the character himself still make me wonder.
