Artist Comment

Handrawn and then scanned and re-edited using photoshop.

As promised , I further developed one of my existing characters and present to you this art piece call "power up" .
I thought of my character as one who could use magic perhaps instead of a space age setting. Originally she was like the kind in those spaceships kind of anime but anyways the final idea came down to this. Perhaps I would add a magic circle later on.

Always I kinda like the way she turned up on this picture. Hope you enjoy this pic as well.
Any feedback is appreciated . Thanks.

    The figure is really well drawn and the colours are nice. I'd like to see it with more colour as I think it would look stunning :) .

    The movement if absolutely incredible! It adds a lot of diamention to the character. The colors are also subtle, but beautiful and work well. Beautiful job!

    thanks for your comments. This picture was drawn only 3 days ago. That's why it came out that just recently. About one hour of drawing time due to lack of ideas for the pose of the character. The cleaning of the line art took quite an amount of time. But I suppose she turned out ok though the line art is not totally clean. Hmm as for colours. I did a quite bit of cleaning up today spend about 5 hours trying to figure out how to really use vectoring of the pen tool in photoshop. But I guess despite all that effort, only half of it is done and still unable to proceed with colours. And soon I would be busy with studies. I guess the next work will have to wait for quite some time though. But hopefully not too long. :)

    its very well drawn, especially the hands (i always fail on this part >.<) like her pose alot and how her hair rises in the wind. and the smooth colors fit, maybe it needs just a little more of them, but great pic at all ^^

  13. kittykat227 Feb 24, 2005

  14. achaye Feb 27, 2005

    Hey wow that's really good! The subtle water color shades really gives a nice touch of character (pun not intended haha). It seems you're quite good with figure-drawing; everything is proportional and natural. Have you taken figure drawing classes before?
