first artwork for this year ! and sure took lot of time and effort to do it ^_^

started to work this on last week of december after coming home from visiting my grandparents. i started to make the lineart at 1:30am or so in the night ~ i was just going to sleep since i was tired since i didn't fell asleep earlier, but i suddenly got this huge inspiration to draw XD i sneaked to get paper from living room since everybody else were already sleeping and started to draw. i didn't finish the sketching the lineart untill it was done, because usually if i don't make it finished when i have inspiration and try to get it done on next day, it won't turn out as i want anymore. so i worked till the sketching was done and went to sleep at 3:35am ~
made it from d.gray-man since i like it very much and especially i love allen, because of his cool eye and anti-akuma weapon.

next day i made the lineart so that i could start inking the drawing on the day after that day. drawing is wholy made by hands with bottled ink and pencil made for drawing with ink. inking too about two weeks but wanted to it with ink since i have don't anything with it for a while.
inking took me about two weeks, couldn't do it as fast as i would have wanted because i have so long school days and much homeworks. but then again i'm happy that i had to make it with slower pace so i got more time to think properly how i would do the effects and so on. and i think this is the best drawing i have made with ink ^_^ please tell me your opinions of it !

i think the hardest thing was to think how i would make the toning for the akumas on the background since i can't use any drawing programs on pc to get gray tones. but i think the way i did them is quite good, at least my dad said so ^^' i was also worried if the background is too white since all the characters are so dark but now i think it's good so you can figure out different details better from it. also wanted to draw allen's eye look bit scary but not to look too crazy XD i think it turned out pretty good, but i'm not sure how you see it so please tell me.
and about the concept i hope it's not too crowded looking because of the all different toning and dotting effects...overall i think this is the drawing i have most but effort and worked hard to get it look as i pictured it in my mind when i made the sketch on that night ~ i love the way how it turned out and hope you like it too <3

comments and constructive critisism are welcome as are favs too ! i really wish you could take a full view on it if you are going to comment so you could actually see how much i have worked on it ~

ps: it looks better if your screen adjustment isn't very bright ~ the smoothness of the black comes better shown when the brightness adjustment is bit darker than really bright.

It is admirable that someone has the motivation to draw with inspiration rather than sleep at 1.30am at night. It is clear that all the hard has paid off because what we see here is a brilliant piece of artwork with clean outlines and wonderful details. This is so well done that will simply spring out of your monitor alive. Zefie deserves high praise for her magnificent work. :)

  6. MyrrhLynn Jan 17, 2007

    Whoa, just whoa. You just managed to make me rethink my attitude towards fanart. XD This piece rocks! I especially love how you gave it that jagged black boarder around. It adds so much emotion and feeling to the wall, and all that black is kind of fun cause it makes Allen stick out more. Great job (you deserve the Elite)!

Lovely job on the inking... you can really tell that you put a lot of effort into this one! I especially like how you shaded the akuma in the background... Cheers and congrats on the highlight!

    Inked art is the best form of drawing since it shows a professional's state of mind. But I can't get over the details! An artist myself, I can never attempt intricate artworks because they'd end up too overcooked. I hope to learn from this piece and strive forward. Thanks for the lovely work! =3
