Heya MWS! Wanted to go for a new professional look of my arts. More cleaner stuff and less sketchy style this time. sorry for not uploading in a while, but i have been very busy (work, training, chilling). And i think everyone is on vacation, so i hope someone will see this one ^^;;. I've made several sketches and digital arts, but this one stood out as the best. What I like about it, is that its all done in Illustrator CS except for the fonts. So the colouring as well. SO it was a new technique for me. And the quality of the image is super, but you'll have to do it with this one, since the quality is reduced so much. Anyway, i like the fresh look, only thing i dont like is the HAND holding the guitar. Its an artist lazyness, so ill fix it some other time. Hope you'll like it! ^__^ bye bye and shit!

Dustin C. 2005-08-08 05:32:32 great sh*t man! the new clean look is awesome. and man, how is it possible to color like that in illustrator?! X3
AIKUZA 2005-08-08 08:05:40 hey thanks you guys! ^__^. Im glad you liked it. I've never seen Guitaroo Man Desty. Never heard of it as well, but I will keep it in mind. And the way I did this colouring is a new technique I tried in illustrator. Right now, its kinda my secret (lame secret), but once i get better developing this technique, i'll be sure to tell you guys. I respect each comment. peace out ;)

MatthiusMonkey 2005-08-08 15:39:05 wow the coloring must of took forever >,< me likes it ^^ the greens funky
Kaizu 2005-08-10 11:54:05 Nice man, looks really good... for some reason your art keeps reminding me of YSRF.. btw i know your little lame secret lol.. wont tell anyone. <3
Def Character 2005-08-10 13:12:19 b^_^d Aikuza but fonts can be greatly transformed in illustrator..^^
AIKUZA 2005-08-10 13:45:02 yaaaay! thanks guys ^^. The face isnt a flaw Jupiter, it's stretched on purpose. SO it gives a nice perspective. No Sensei, my French sucks and it's just a joke, the title of the art. You're right about the sound of the guitar. I drew them at first without headphones. Later on, I added headphones. SO I didnt even notice it. Thanks, i'll edit it, when i dont forget again....-__-. Yeah Kaizu, I love Jet Set Radio dude :D. The style is very cool. And guess what, I listened to some JetSet Radio Songs to get inspired ;). Yeah, I know DefCHara, but The fonts were just added while making some changes in PS CS, so i didnt want to open illustrator again for changes. Anyways, thanks all!
Ayla 2005-08-13 11:45:40 ::cowers at all the comments:: o.o;; so many people commented already.. and aikuz.. uh.. i hope you know im not reading all of those.. ^-^;;; heh.. heheh.. ..heh... well here's my input: naturally.. i love it. -.-;; and i hate saying that.. cause you're starting to be too much. =P i recognize this style of yours from previous peices you've done and i think it's the one i like the most. this peice just shows how creative you are when it comes to the clothing and the hair and all that. and wow.. the headphones are plugged into the guitar. she must blast her eardrums. =P no i'm just kidding. again, it's a really cool peice. definitely one you should be proud of.
AIKUZA 2005-08-26 04:09:23 Thanks Ayla-Gally ;)
Ayumi 2006-03-01 16:42:17 thats just awesome!

I went a little overboard on the coloring, can't seem to simplify. ><; I like the basic idea, don't like the coloring of the wall, or the lighting. but alas, Merry Christmas!
