I'm back! back! back! back! back! BACK!

Finaly, the worst week of the mont (and probably YEAR) is over! :nya: Time to boogy!

Well, to get back to what our sheeps, this is my latest little drawing. I saw a inked drawing on deviantART [link] and I liked the stile so I tried it as well.

Once again we have Robin as a model and that is why I moved it in the DGM gallery. And you must admit that we do not have enough ZONE fan works around. Still, I don't know if Robin-chan realy looks like Robin-chan in this one.

Belive it ore not, this is in fact my art class' homewhork rpojects from now 3 weeks ago (we have fashon and modeles) and this is what got out. The sketch took about 2h and the inking took me about ... 3h in the evening and nother two in the morning plus ... 7h ^_^' It wasn't easy at all specialy since all those tiny dots were hand made (yes, all done with the tip of the pen) and all the decoes on the trousrs and all - were all hand made. No intervention of the outlines was ever made in photoshop. The only digital thing done was the color (duh) wich took me ... well, hard to keep count. Robin took me about 3 ore 4h done in diferent days and the bg and such thing took me about 5 or 6h. Done yesterday evening and a bit this morning.

Choosing the colors was hard. I had to think realy hard in order to make this, but I think it was worth it. I realy like the result of it all and I don't think I would ever change something. It wa fun trying out this stile and I have just fallen in love with drawing in thick outlines. I kind of merged most of the kleyers in betwene the fazes so I an't ell how many they were, but I think (judging by the number of colores I used) that I have long pased 60. Well, all I can say is that it was fun and that I would gladely do it agian and again.

Now I'll have to start dooing my halloween work since I am clearly falling behind. But I will do it!
And when I think that now about two years ago I was afraid of coloring in phothosop ... now I love dooing it.

Full view this one if you haven't done so already. It is well worth the credits.

This is a great example of old world charm coupled with new world techniques. kykyopj has really outdone herself with this piece. The detail work is exquisite and the colors and shading are nearly flawless.

Definitely an artist to add to your watchlist!

  4. shinshinovi Oct 27, 2007

    Whoa. You also did basic colors on paper before using photoshop, or all colors are on photoshop? Whatever it is, this one's a great one! Hats off:)

    A shining golden pallete. Slight touches of detail that are reminiscent of an olde English cartoon. Fantasy setting. Mysterious pose. A style that feels steeped in tradition along with a refreshing modern twist.

    What's not to love!

  6. Fran Retired Moderator Oct 27, 2007

  14. moonescape Oct 29, 2007

    wow, I must agree very well about this. I mean she drew, vector, and shaded it all by herself. Especailyl the idea was so simple, but you can deinfately tell its difficult with all the work here. :o

    This is definately well done and I must agree with MapleRose about the warn colours here. Love the outcome of the texture and keep it up Jessica! ^^
