    Looks kind of like a female version of the Maurader from Path of Exile.

    Re: Portrait from A-Z

    In the drawing above comes a lot stuff together that inspired me over the last months.

    -Elena from USF4
    -the bowie knife was initially a dagger, inspired by Maya from Killer Instinct; season 2
    -the now bowie knife and jungle foliage(not yet in the image; obviously) was inspired by the Kano trailer for MKX
    -the idea of maybe(!) making her a cannibal(note the blood around her mouth) comes from the Jack Ketchum stuff I'm reading atm
    -the aesthetic(her phisique and my drawing style) is, like always, inspired by the late Michael Turner and a bit by J.S.Campbell
    -I wanted to finally draw naked boobs, since I'm a passionate big boobs lover, but never really drew them, because I considered them to be a bit shallow as a motive and I also never really had a reason to do so. Now I'm a bit more "YOLO" on my old days and just draw what I want to draw, without too much thinking
    -her asymmetric haircut and shaved sides are inspired by the sea people from Michal Turner's Fathom comic and Cassie Cage from the upcoming MKX
    -her intense pupils were inspired by the Persona 4 Arena characters and the way Greg Capullo draws them in the Batman comics

    The thing that was entirely my idea was the "zebra-stripes to flames" tattoo. Details were always very important to me, so I came up with this tattoo, that mixes two things together that she finds the most important(in general); zebras and fire = food, clothing, tools, and warmth, light, safety, etc.. But to be honest, the tattoo was there before I could explain why she has it in the first place; interpreting my own stuff, if you want so

    Even though that sounds like a lot(!) of inspiration and consideration, I didn't really thought about all that consciously; I just started drawing and incorporated all the cool stuff I could remember, or came up with myself.

    Oh and the reason why I picked up a pencil after a long time of abstinence was, that I once again thought, that I had to effing do something with that whole drawing thing, or I'll regret it forever. And the other thing was, that I needed something to try out this new drawing program that I've bought a couple weeks ago; Manga Studio 5Ex.

    PS: I'll only color and maybe digitally ink the drawing, but the base drawing is still done with good ol' pencil and paper.

    Yeah, that sensation of working with "real materials and tools" is imo still unmatched by digital tools and materials, even though I love the results of digital work just as much, as I do the results of traditional work.

    Digital coloring and painting is so much faster than doing it traditionally, but even though it has a lot of advantages, there's still a lot(!) to learn/train for me before I'll get the desired results. If I ever want to get real money for what I'm doing artistically I have to seriously take on this challenge and incorporate working digitally at least to 50% into my process.

    Penciling is nice, but if you don't wanna end up only drawing people and pet faces from photographs, or doodling just for yourself, working digitally is more or less the only way to go, except maybe if you are super fast with traditional tools, or if you have someone else coloring your work. I am/have definitely neither of both

    Thanks MrFunkyFunk, always appreciated I'm hoping to get more stuff out in the next time; here in this thread and in the "Brink novel is there one in the making thread", up in the Brink forums. I already have one almost finished page lying around since months, it's definitely about time to wrap that page up and get back to business in this whole matter. But before that I want to finish our sexy wild woman above; there's still a bit of additional penciling needed, after that I'll ink it(traditionally, or digitally, I have not yet decided), and coloring it. I'd like to do a night version(with a full moon in the background) and a daylight version.

Though with traditional screen-toning being a major pain in the rear, it's obvious why doing it digitally is everyone's favourite method.

    But that also depends on what kind of artist/illustrator you pretend to be. I find that doing mixed media works well for a lot of people I know. I tend to stick with digital lately, but I still like to go back to traditional occasionally. I feel you are more in control with traditional and just feels more natural-- I don't know.

    If you get pro with professional markers you'll also notice that coloring can be done quite fast too, and beautifully, especially if you mix in other tools. I just can't use markers 'cause the sound of them scraping the paper makes me cringe in pain. >_<

    I'm pretty sure you'll figure something out that works for you perfectly.

    my daughter, ca. 2005, pencil
    (14)Meine kleine Tochter Dez.05.jpg

    pre-painting pencil drawing
    This is actually not the actual pre-drawing, but the actual one looked quite similar. I've started over again because the proportions weren't right in many areas of the drawing; like i.e the hands, which were way to big; that may not have been as obvious in the drawing, but would've become clearly noticeable in the colored painting. Also the one visible leg was too thick, even though that may have gone unnoticed.

    establishing the middletones with a variety of greys

    Bild 008.jpg

    The final painting, colored guaches over the black and grey foundation.
    It took me a lot of practice to learn how to not shmear the color with the greys and make the whole painting one brownish mess. One of the most important things in this step is to use high quality colors, that do exactly what you want "from them".

    PS: This greyish blur/dirt around many lines comes from extremely shrinking the image, it's not in the original drawing.

    Re: Portrait from A-Z

    Almost done, yet there's still a bit of detail missing, but I think the direction of the image is already quite clear, I just couldn't have waited any longer to post this, since I'm pretty happy with it so far.

    001.jpg


    002.jpg



    My next illustration; Proxy riding a literally dirty bomb. I think I'll stuck with this layout; my first draft was a bit more graphical(in terms of style), like the warbird paintings from WW2, but I've decided I wanted more three-dimensionality and foreshortening. I already have a pretty clear idea of the final piece in my head, but it will certainly take a bit to get my idea on paper, then on the digital painting ground in Manga Studio 5(with my lovely new Cintiq 22HD) and from there to you guys in the forums.

    003.jpg


    And last, but not least; my Christmas gift for my daughter. Even though it may look a bit awkward(two extremely different views cobbled together in one image), it perfectly captures the personalty of either cat, which I found more important than a perfectly balanced drawing.

    Really good to hear your nice feedback I still hate it though, that I couldn't have posted an entirely finished illustration, since posting it a 2nd time around(slightly enhanced and finished) won't have that impact. But I still have some ideas, to remarkably encance the image, without totally altering the present look.

    As for Proxy; I have not yet decided whether I'll just color it, or if I should try to paint it. Rather a comic book look, like the girl above, or a classical pin-up look cobbled with the visual style of the current merc cards. Regardless of how I'll decide in the end, I'll have to make a clean drawing first anyways and that's what I'm doing atm.
