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!

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 ;)

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 ;)

A friend asked me to draw Uezurii and Li play fighting last night, but this is all I could come up with. I know the heads are big and the anatomy suck, but I just messed around and played with it. It's just something simple XD Sketched this all on MSN, ah well

Just so you guys know, I'm dumping a lot of my characters cause I had too many. I'll still draw them, just not as often. I find that when you have so many characters you feel guilty when you draw random people because you abandon them for a drawing. So oh noes!

Anyhow, the remaining characters consist of: Jamie Narwhal, Lollek, Zepei, and these two carnies, named Beatrice and Darien.

K, here's the story behind these two...

Beatrice is a magic making person at the carnival. After she got fired from her job, she was at a bar in her carny outfit and a ringmaster dude asked her if she wanted to work at his carnival cause she was doing magic for money at the bar and all this other stuff. SO WHAT DO YOU KNOES. She takes the job, but when she packs her stuffs to get on the carny train she finds a mysterious lamp in her attic. :o so she rubs it and there's darien!

in the end they fall in love and darien retires from genie-ing to live with Beatrice on the carny train and do carny stuff with her and other things of such nature.

UHM YEHA he started as a transvestite but I kinda think he ended up looking like a boy. YAY! 'cause he was supposed to be a transvestite and then they fell in love (cause that would be cool) but he looks like a boy. W/e. I'll make him girlier in future drawings of him.

OH YEH--and Beatrice reads tarot cards and crystal balls and stuff of that nature. I smell a story about beatrice. xD LOL. I love her. NOT dumping her and NOT creating any more characters for a LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOONG time.

 I love the name Darien. My brother had a kiddie friends birthday party and one of the guests' name was darien. So I adopted it for my awesome genie. xD GRANT ME 3 WISHES. WHERE ARE YOU WHEN I NEED YOU. DANNNNNNNNNNNG.

Uh yeh, enjoy zem, cause this drawing took like. 4 hours. Beatrice is hard to draw.

FINALLY IM DONE. JESUS CHRIST~~
