Oh snaps. I did something on paper! X_X

Urrrk, it has so many mistakes in it. But I'm determined to learn how to use more natural media, so here is my first stab at markers in a while. ; 3; I swore that some of these colors were the same on paper but when I scanned them... they were completely different. ARG. *devrurouni-lu* is making me post it. <3

This is kinda a remake of a drawing I did a loooooong time ago. Which I don't have anymore... but I remember doing it. XD His shirt is from [link] ... which I really want.

Quick bg added in Photoshop. I'm too scared to fiddle with backgrounds yet. ; 3;

*O* How I wish I had these awesome skillz! I really love your art so much. The colors you use seem to tie together to create a beautiful composition.

Or, in this case, something really fun and cute. X3 Faved!

Very good, I love his T-shirt =P
kakita Featured By Owner Aug 6, 2008
That's just fiiiine. I'm glad Rurouni-lu made you put it in devart, if she didn't then we'd all not have something great to see!

And then we wouldn't be tempted to buy that shirt. <3

i love your color scheming!!!
Luna-Kitsune-Blu Featured By Owner Oct 13, 2007
there is NO reason to feel bad about this picture. I LOVE it--in fact, now I'd really like to try to imitate how you shaded this. Being self-taught in the marker field, it never crossed my mind to try it the way you have here and now I REALLY want to. So there--that should be enough to make it awesome. Plus, the jumps from pure white to color blows me away (tis something I constantly fail at) So yeah. You rock.

Wow. I just love your style, it's so unique and fun! Beautiful!
Kata Featured By Owner Sep 10, 2007  Professional Digital Artist
Awesome :D Great shading/coloring style, and yay for traditional medium! ;)
psuedosemi Featured By Owner Sep 8, 2007
Wow, this is great. I can't draw with markers. Murders the life out of the picture and my tolerance. I'm always grumpy after I color with em. This is really cool though. The colors make me smile.

I have been using pencil crayon and markers for almost 20 years, and when i wanted to try and scan some of the thing si had worked on it was extremely hard to match the glow that was on the page.

I dunno , once you scan it the life seems to be sucked out of it, and when you look at it in real life you swear it is a different picture altogether. If you start messing around with it in photoshop, it starts looking a little too synthetic after a while, even after just a brightness tweak.

Hard stuff to transfer!

You know, even though there are mistakes I always feel better after doing a piece by hand...something about putting your own energy into a piece than just your thoughts onto a can be very spiritual sometimes.....*sounds hippyish* Well, you get the idea. Still looks great though yo, keep it up.
taintedsilence Featured By Owner Aug 24, 2007  Professional Artist
markers can be a very fun but very unforgiving medium - but you did an awesome job, especially with the color harmony in this piece. What kind of markers did you use, btw? And if you need help with markers, I'll humbly offer up what I know
fayrenpickpocket Featured By Owner Aug 24, 2007  Professional Digital Artist
I have some Trias, and this was my first time testing them out. <3 Advice is wonderful! I'm such a noob to this.
taintedsilence Featured By Owner Aug 24, 2007  Professional Artist
oh, I think I forgot to say that if you use the broad end of the markers to color in large areas it usually makes them look nice and smooth - the narrow nibs tend to leave these stroke marks. I hope that helps.
taintedsilence Featured By Owner Aug 24, 2007  Professional Artist
ooooh, trias.

Personally, I don't use the narrow nib(s) just cause I think it makes the ink go away faster . . . but thats a personal thing. Some people have amazing skills with them.

Honestly, you did an amazing job and I don't think there's much I could tell you, except that if you ever want to blend colors for a smoother look, go over the edges of the darker color(s) with the lighter colors . . . does that make sense? Aah, I feel like an attention whore, but I think I explained it better here: [link]
rissbutts Featured By Owner Aug 24, 2007  Student Digital Artist
Please keep doing traditional! You are amazing at it!

And if you hadn'tve mentioned it...I would of thought that bg was marker too @_@ How do you do it i mean JESUS WOMAN.

how can you call yourself scared when always have such bold uses of color?
i love the shading in his hair and all the purples~
DrewGreen Featured By Owner Aug 23, 2007
Wow, looks great! I prefer digital, myself, but diffr'nt strokes, right?

To be honest, the background was pretty convincing. I wouldn't have guessed it was digital if you hadn't told everyone.

Great job on the whole thing!
Rainblossom Featured By Owner Aug 23, 2007
Fan-freaking-tastic. I love the happy pose and warm color scheme.

What kind of markers do you use?
fayrenpickpocket Featured By Owner Aug 23, 2007  Professional Digital Artist
I have Trias, and this is my first time using them. ; o; They're amazing.
Rainblossom Featured By Owner Aug 24, 2007
So I've heard. I'll have to get my paws on some eventually. :plotting:
eve-bolt Featured By Owner Aug 23, 2007
Awesome! I'm very fond of your traditional media work. Seems you always come up with a neat color scheme and a very interesting and personal way to render the drawing. Great piece of art :3

puppyShaker Featured By Owner Aug 22, 2007
DX Your marker skills are so good! Ack, how did'ya get the background such an even color? *_*

In any case, I really like the pose, and where it's positioned on the paper (makes the little cord thingies much cooler~)
