Inktober day 4 (I finished it yesterday even though it’s already day 5 for me. took me two days to ink this D: omg)!!! My character Nuniel (named her after a friend’s screen name lol) being a high classy lady… when usually she’s just creepy. Enjoy~!
I figured this would be kind of fun to do, it’s not everyday that I have all steps to show like this. A friend of mine named me the “Monk” of his Final Fantasy group and this was my design for it.
Sketch - Step 1) I don’t usually do this at all because I’m still not really all that comfortable with it, but for this picture I actually sketched it out on Photoshop. What I like about it is that I get to build the different layers of clothing without messing with the body layer. It also helps for parts of the body I suck at drawing like hands. I had 6 layers going for this picture.
Details - Step 2) Like I said, Ii don’t feel comfortable doing too much using a Cintiq, so I printed the image out in blue line and then build all the details on top of it using a blue lead mechanical pencil. Having it print out like that also allows me to see what I want in a picture so much better, for some reason I can’t do that as well using the comp… *shrugs*
Inking - Step 3) I *tried* inking digitally at first but I always give up after I complete like.. a face. So I went back to the paper and inked it right then and there and I felt 1000x better. Usually by the inks I have everything the way I want it to be but you can see I still made various little changes from the detailed piece to the inks. So yeah that happens. I ink using Zebra Brush Pens and a 0.03 Copic Multiliner for the finer details.
There might be a colored version of this coming soon~ <3
Figured it would be ok to post this now. This is the test page I did for a comic book gig. Didn’t work out, but I had a lot of fun doing this page.
The thumbnails were from a different artist, unfortunately I have no idea who he or she is or I would totally credit (but who ever it is, the thumbnails were super fun). Drawing, inking, coloring and lettering were done by me.
I had this REALLY AWESOME DREAM the other day…. and I want to draw it out… this is sort of one of the designs… I know I got the “lightning rod” perfectly though. You hit it anywhere twice and it charges then sends off lightning. The only other thing I saw perfectly was the shoes BUT I don’t remember what they look like ;___;
There were 4 other characters, one cloaked person and two bad guys… I’ll try to design them all soon. But it was a dream so… It’s very hard to tell what they looked like. Still, might make some fun comic pages.
