You're inspiring me, maybe I'll do a mask drawing too...

These are all really good. Especially the second one looks so *real* in terms of shading and expression. And the sparkle effect on her hair in the coloured version is very nifty.
Of the three sketches I like that one. It lets us get very up close and personal.



Let me toss in these. My landlord knows I draw, and asked if I could do a drawing of his second house. So I did.

The first sketch I was thinking of having the house kinda loom out of the bushes. But ditched the idea, too much of the house was hidden.

This second sketch is more complete. I'm liking it.

The house was built in 1925, and a subtle bit is it's very asymmetrical, which I like.

Must feel great (and a bit scary) to get a request like that!

The sketches are good and all, but the coloured version is very, very impressive. I already liked your colouring, but the shading here blows my mind. I love how it creates different textures, contrasting the smooth stucco (I guess?) of the house with the bark of the different types of trees. And the sky is just a lovely summer colour. Great picture, it has a personal touch while still feeling like a pure representation of reality.

I'd love to lay this rivalry to rest!

Thanks Chris, glad to hear all that. Believe it or not I wasn't too intimated by the drawing (I've done similar before, i.e. the Abbey Road cover) the scariest bit was I needed to hit the landlords image/concept/version/desire.

He was thrilled with the final, and I offered to frame it. So I did. Now I didn't "have" it framed, I did the work. I own a mat-cutter and know how to use it. Well, in theory anyway...

In the original she's holding a digitizing stylus, since I use Copic Markers I swapped them. For the background I mimicked my color swatch list. Yes, I do have A LOT of Copics.
BTW, 88 colors on a 9 x 12 inch illustration paper.

Oh, she looks great (both lineart and colouring)! And you must be stoked that he was happy with the picture.

Framing is a great skill to have.


I didn't draw a mask picture, but... Dunno if you've been following our Creativity Hour thread, but I embroidered my mask here. It's black thread in backstitch (I wrote the words in pencil before embroidering). The rough cotton fabric was great to work with, I may do more actually.

Sometime last week I was having lunch at a shopping center which doubles as a station for the local commuter train. I wasn't paying much attention to the bells, whistles, clangs, or the rest of the noise. It was only a train, y'know. But I happened to glance and this was sitting right in front of me. All I did was grab the cellphone, stand up, click the snapshot, and return to my pasta.

In case the sky looks kinda strange: There are three major forest fires burning nearby and the sky is filled with smoke.

Looks great, like all your scenery. I love how detailed it is, and the colours are great: subtle, but varied. One of your best pictures so far, going purely by my tastes.

Thanks, Chris. Detail and subtle coloring makes this drawing. I needed to mix a few of the Copic marker colors to get some of the weirder tones. Fortunately for me the ink is slightly transparent and the base color can influence the upper layer of color.

Let me toss this bit of silliness to the world:

Really great expressions and colouring. I feel like I should watch Wakfu.

Thanks for posting the sketches as well!

Wakfu: To quote Luci "Do it! Do it! Do it!"
The first two seasons are simply outstanding. The gang have lots of smaller side adventures before they get into their main quest. These side adventures help flesh out their universe.

Michiru: From "BNA", Michiru is back! She abandoned basketball for baseball.

This is the base pose from the show. Nice but kinda boring.

Not so boring.

Which lead to this:

(P.S. Pink Flamingos? Whaaa? The very first team she plays against is composed of pink flamingos. Really!)
