FirstBorn 2009-11-18 09:33:12 Such detail! Tell us more about how you did this. :3 Did you make it using a digital of traditional medium?
AILEEN 2009-11-19 06:53:29 Hello FirstBorn! Thank you for appreciating! :) I used traditional medium. First I sketched him in using pencil and then, rendered him in rapidograph pens and black ink. :)
FirstBorn 2009-11-20 08:58:08 Wow! That sounds like a lot of work. How long did it take you to make this piece?
AILEEN 2009-11-21 05:00:21 I think it took me about 2 weeks from pencil sketch to final pen and ink illustration, but there were some days in between when I missed working on it :) It's a lot less complicated compared to color-work. I really do think in black and white so colors are quite a challenge for me :(
AILEEN 2009-12-10 05:47:53 Hi Legothief! It's been a while since we last met here & I'm glad I bumped into you! :) Thank you for your inspiring comment! I'm able to create find dots and lines because I use Rapidograph. I hope you give Rapidograph pens a go - I'm sure you'll find them an indispensable tool for your ink-work!

first try with markers. not that great, but it was fun. I called him sparky and it kind of stuck...
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)
Something old I never finished ^^

Here one of my favorite pirates, BUGGY
Anubis (in one of his forms)
This is a quick drawing I did of Soul Eater Evans from Soul Eater. If you ask me I think his eyes are a little messed up here but I was in school and not trying my best. I hope you all like it XD...By the way, this is drawn from an existing picture of Soul Eater! I did not create this original pose!

aaaand, ladies and gentlemen, here it is, my first truely decent attempt at a good coloring job ;)  This was the first picture I made after I discovered the smudge tool (I'm afraid you're NOT going to see the piccie that led to its discovery...quite an ugly thing, that was >_>)  nehoo, tis a DnD character of mine named Eshana. She's the type of REALLY annoying person that can annoy you, while its near impossible ot annoy her : )  fun fun ...also my first attempt at an abstract background.  Actually, one of my first at any background at all xD
