I'm back after a long time :D! Now, I'm here to merge two of my favorite fetish: bishounen and metal xD. I finished Uta no Prince-sama like a month ago and I fell in love with Ren Jinguji <3. However, since I'm not a real j-pop fan, I just felt that his personality and presence would fit as a metalhead too... so, here he is! If you have seen some of my previous work, you'll know that I suck with digital tools, so I incline myself for taditional art. What did I do here? I got the idea out of this pic:

and started to work it out. I did the basic lines first and I gave Ren a looong hair (oh dear... <3), a little bit more of muscle (personally, I don't like the skinny type) and the traditional metalhead upper outfit: the black shirt and the black leather bands (<3). I scanned it, had it cleaned and printed. Then, I applied the color with my classic Faber-Castell watercolor pencils (the hair alone took like 6 different colors!) and scanned it again, just to enhance color, contrast and another final clean up. I know it looks a little rustic, but I like it ^_^. Hope you guys like it too!

    Love the watercolor pencils on the hair! Makes it look really smooth and blended well. Though, in contrast with the standard shading on the shirt, it makes the shirt look a bit more grainy that it probably is.

    Yay! You know what's the secret? Well, it's about to be not a secret, but whatever... xD I used the white pencil to smooth the colors, so I got a very creamy texture (it is useful after all xDDD). I didn't do it with the shirt... I thought it would have ended a little messy, so I didn't take the risk. Thus, the paper trace left the grainy effect which you mention u.u I know it doesn't look tooootally fine, but it doesn't look that bad either, right?
