Original Lines - [link]
By ~ebas

Inks - [link]
By *LahmiaRaven

Color - `vest

There's a pretty good chance I'll rework this image tomorrow and put up an updated version. But I like to round out my weekends with an image submission, so here you go fellows and fellowitas!

Spent the afternoon cranking out this one. Really liked working with all the intricate detailings here.

I've gone a good amount of stuff for ~ebas in the past, but this is the first time I've taken one of the inks from *LahmiaRaven. She actually ambushed me on Skype, and we orchestrated this whole thing. This also allowed me to work on this image at a very high image resolution, straight off her scanner.

She's a pretty legit inker, too. So much additional props go to her.

Of course, though, the headliner for this piece is Mr. Eric Basaldua. I need to come up with an alternate signature for more cheeky images, like Ebass.

Dufflanty? Deflanky? Professor Cheeks?

I was just looking at the flats on this pic and was thinking what more could you do with it, and then.... !BAM! This is awsome...on one hand I'm like wow this is crazy good and then on the other hand I'm depressed and unmotivated cause I got a long way to go before I get this good! lol....No" I really am laughing but if you look close Im crying on the inside! All fun aside this is stunning and givesme hella motivation.

Thanks!

You have to remember, I've been doing this for ten years. I started coloring my first images back in 2001, just to get a feel for the Photoshop software, and because one of my guy friends was quite an accomplished pencil artist. Even further back, I did digital painting and texture painting in Half-Life back in 1998, and did mods for Starcraft with some of my friends. Well before Photoshop,I used MSPaint all the time, and learned shading/lighting back in 3rd Grade when I got into modding Sim City 2000 with SCURK.

I wasn't born with talent, I worked hard for the last fifteen years building it up. And I've still got another fifteen years until I'm at the point I want to be at.

It's a life-long commitment. So never get discouraged by others. Just do it, and have fun. Don't worry about it looking good, just do it.

it's amazing how a little bit of ass can push your work to another level xD. The last two pics you done from eric are outstanding man. All the little details look meticulously worked over to perfection and the overall pic is a big slice of badassery from a badass person!

Such Vibrant Colors! The overall color scheme is so deliciously rich and the detailing is absolutely mind-blowing. I can definitely see why Lahmia approached you to work on this image :nod: You have played up each of the textures and materials wonderfully.

Truly well executed!
