Mangaworkshop - Amateur manga artists community

finally colored it.  w00t.  Actually, I have another file where I started coloring it entirely my computer, but then I got shipped off to music camp and, where there's nothing to do in the afternoon, I one day got bored and decided to experiment with colored pencils.  It turned out well - better than the digital version was coming, if that tells you anything ;^^  so I decided to use the colored pencil version instead.  Of course, in the end, I ended up dramatically editing it digital-wise, but the fact that it started out as a colored pencil job made me happy xD  The little figures at the top, by the way, are Yukiko, Evan and Cory, as you could guess.  They were supposed to be representative of their interests - Yukiko loves making costumes and cosplaying, so she's admiring some a cloak or a dress that she made; Evan likes reading, so he's...reading, and Cory likes art, so he's painting ^^  I rather like the way the little figures turned out  ^^   The background I went a little crazy with.  I decided to try out a 'technique' that my art teacher in 7th grade opened my eyes to - she called it graffitti.  Basically, I took words that the three characters could identify with and randomly spread them about the bg (Some of the words, incase you were curious, include eccentricity, creativity, anime, manga, dnd, goth, dork, and artist.  There might be more, but those are the ones I can remember.)  Anyway, I think this comment is getting long enough ._.  I'll stop rambling now and let you guys comment ^.^v

Again for my schoolproject, a concept art I made for one of the enviromnent props. It's somekind of steammachine. I was obviously inspired by sealife in general. Photoshop CS2, tablet and 2H of work.

my sixth installment of PN's seven loves, the drawing was done like...feburary and i just coloured it in. took me long enough, my computer kept automatically turn off so it was hard to have it finish. and i used many media in this picture. lol went kinda experimentive.
Also this is where my new style starts to appear, the eyes.
anyways enjoy ^o^-

Gah! I rushed this drawing... I feel bad... *cries* I'm planning to fix it though and make it better. (Yeah! ^^)
This is my friend's made up character named Ryu. We didn't have a visual of him, so I made a drawing of him with her permission. Yeah... I need to redraw it... :( The hair kind of reminds me of Daiskue's hair off of DN Angel.

no. VII 
Gotta thank NikA for a lot of tips, though they're not implemented in this gag yet. (maybe I will redo this one so I can compare the two)

holy crap, I cannot get this picture out of my head! o.O  seriously, I've created something like it in four different pictures, and i remain dissatisfied with it every time >_>  ah well. My first attempt at acryllic painting.  I've got a long way to go, but ah well xD

It's a present for a friend of mine, she likes totoro and doraemon :)

This drawing has no point. It isn't for anybody, it doesn't mean anything deep. It's all for me, because I don't have fun when I draw anymore, and I want to, dammit. >:( So this was born. It has many mistakes, but I don't care, because I had fun while doing it.  ... +prismacolor pencils, 2 hrs

An old picture it's not finished but i'm too lazy to do that..>.>;;

you all know hayate. in the background is his party member "Gene-ex". he is an experimental weapon made by the americans, created to destroy everything in it's way. gene-ex doesn't have feelings, somehow he became friends with hayate ( long story ) and his sister fel in love with him. in this picture, Gene-ex shows his feelings for the first time, seeing his beloved getting killed. ( my own crit about this drawing is that Hayate's feet is wrong and Gene-ex's hand.

This is a girl I found on the video of the song rocketeer XD

Uh. The Nightwalker. When she puts her blindfold on at night she falls into a trance and guards the forest on her stilts. The NightWalker is (c) me.

hehehee... my master who taught me how to ice skate....

after the ice skating event, i was kinda surprised that i was brave enough to even ask some of my friends to go for an ice skate in mall of asia....

later did i know that ice skating is not that easy... thanks to my friends who really made it possible for me to learn how to ice skate (kahit medyo nagtampo ako aksi biglang napostpone....)
