Mangaworkshop - Amateur manga artists community

FINALLY! It's all finished, and with the help of simply having other artist friends around me at the time to keep me inspired and going ^_^.<br>

This took WAY too long just because of the fact that work was getting in the way, and I'd usually come home EXHAUSTED and too whipped to touch this again.<br>

But I've reached my limit, stopped nitpicking over it, and am saying its done. It's finished before Onna! fest and just waiting to be taken to Staples to get prints made up.<br

Tammy asked me if I was going to sell the original piece.. and I might, depending on my mood. Just have to see if there are any people interested first ;b.<br>

All traditional media... 3h pencil, Speedball super black india ink and brush, on cardstock mounted on hot press illustration board. Dr. Martin dyes, white ink, gold and white paints, conte crayon, vine charcoal, white pastel, and red charcoal *can't remember what its real name is*. Full size is 8.5 x 11 inches, full bleed.<br>

The wall scroll reads Ellis is MINE. And YES, HE is a GUY in a womans kimono ;b.

AAA-LAZEX-disign 2005-10-06 03:29:22 great pencil work I usally never make the time to colour Like this myself, but nou I see what it can become, if I put more time in it, so thanx :_)
konflikti 2005-10-07 23:48:12 Faboulous stuff. Only thing that bothers me is that jawline/lips/nose thing that I can't really follow. Might be a style issue though. With someone who has as refined style as you I feel that I can let it go. ^_^

Been a GITS fan since 1998, owning all kinda shit from GITS (manga, movies) and Batou is my favorite character (Pazu & Ishikawa too) The coloring is done by Aikuza, the art itself by me. The reason the 3 Tachikoma's are smaller, is because there in 'agent mode' - so no complaining about that - and furthermore, Fuchikoma's suck balls, i like Tachikoma's a lot more, so that's why there are Tachi's instead of Fuchi's (so also no complaining about time difference)

I forgot that no one on this site has seen what I actually look like. So here's a self-portrait. Done in a couple of hours rather than studying for a physics test. I should really start looking and acting my age...

Emma, Daniel and Rupert, aka Hermione, Harry and Ron. It took be about 8 hours to mae this. Especially Rupert's face was hard to do. He always tends to have an expression of 'something nasty has just crawled up my pants', but I think I've done ok. Before you say it: Yes Harry's glasses are askew, they are that way in the picture too. It's the scene from movie 3 with the Hippogrif
