This artwork was created with the rotogravure technique. Therefore I had to evenly spread out black, wax-like paste on a polished copperplate. Then I scratched away the black paste with a really thin, fine needle. Thereafter the copperplate was etched in a acid bath. The waxed parts keep spared, the scratched parts becomes grooves. Then I washed away the paste and filled the grooves with black print colour paste. Now, the copperplate was ready for printing with a special machine. The heavy drum pressed down the copperplate into an absorbent, humid paper sheet, which soaked up the black colour. And here you see the result.^^

Ok, here's the finished version. I fixed the face proportion problem. I'd liked to have done more with the background, but I had to send it to this game company today. Anyway, what do you guys think?

I've been itching to upload this sucker for days now, but didn't want to until I was able to work further on commissions that NEED to be done ( yes, I'm working on the Sleeping Beauty beach one, no worries ). It's been up on the MLP Arena and Trading Post for those few days, but only because I wanted to introduce the pony community to my regular chibi style *hoping to get some more commissions and possibly sell tshirts ^_^*.<br><br>
ANYHOO!<br><br>
Femme chibi male version of Glory, the My Little Pony. Pencils and Copic multiliners inks in sketchbook, colored in Open Canvas. ( available for tshirt transfers for purchase ).<br><br>
Sketched and inked in my sketchbook while being bored in the back of the schools computer lab at work on the students first day of classes. I was ORIGINALLY going to do a chibi picture of my unicorn character, Ellis, but ended up doing a chibi male version of Glory, nude, with noooothing showing. I've printed this out onto dark tshirt transfer paper, and transfered it to a black tshirt. It looks pretty dang cool, actually! Now to see how well the transfer and ink stays after being washed.<br><br><i>~~Bee</i>

WOOHOO! It turned out great! Thanks To Bee-chan for the main color work on this peice, its just what i imagined it would be! i did the background with the speedlines and stuff. also, i drew the lineart using only pencil, not a drop of ink was used in this collab pic.
