Finally finished my Selina Kyle fan art, after who knows how long. I've been busy working on other things but slowly chipped away at this until last night. Not much else to say, other than I love the show and the character, and thanks for looking! I'll post more stuff later.
I started with a very simple sketch and then just tinkered with it until it was done. I was originally planning to color it, but I believe it is a more powerful scene with only black and white values.
@fiodestromus: Thanks! As soon as I learned how to use a pencil, but I started getting into digital art about 3 years ago. Even then, I would scan in my pencil/ink work and then bring it into Photoshop afterwards. Only very recently, I believe early this year, was when I was comfortable doing everything start to finish digitally. I still do traditional sketch work often though.
@claymore1998: Thanks guys! It would normally take me about 2-3 weeks to do something like this. If I worked nonstop without doing anything else besides working on a piece, it would take half that time. I got lazy with this one and stretched it over a month. I've been drawing since I was 3 years old.
Here's something I started last night that I'll finish later. It spun off of a joke that a few friends and I made a while ago about Batman having different abilities from the Narutoverse. I called him Knight of the Six Paths, but I think Rikudou Batman is easier to say.
Dunno about you guys, but I'm super hyped for tonight! I want to do something to this sketch, but not until I finish SageBats and Green Lantern. I'm adding some constructs to Green Lantern to fill in all that negative space, and throw some color on Bats to finally top it off.
So I'm gonna go ahead and push the concept a bit and add some more characters to the piece. It'll be cover art for an imaginary film starring New52 Hal and some fresh recruits. Kilowog and Salaak will be there just cuz they're staple members. I really appreciate the corps for many reasons, especially with how diverse it can be at any point in time. Some of the members are bugs, shark-crustacean hybrids, human look-alikes, anime creatures, robots.. etc. They're all there. Mogo and Sinestro are there but are just placeholders for now. I think new members should mean new challenges and threats.
Kara is still coming along nicely. Definitely one of the more frustrating pieces I'm currently working on, but still fun. More background and story elements are coming into play. I'm pushing the cape to make it more vibrant by darkening everything else on her and I'm about to introduce a bit of subsurface scattering on her legs, hands and face. Getting rid of the lines is always the hardest part; I grow attached to them and the painting looks weird without them if I keep them on for too long..
FANTASTIC, EXEMPLARY, WUNDERBAHR!
Honestly it is SO refresshing to see someone SO talented with digital brushes ALSO being someone whom has botherer to learn to master a penc il on semi-course surfaces.
10 outta ten stars. This stuff makes my heart sing and I generally loath digi-stuff. /standing ovation
