Green Legend + Step by Step

Today I drew Green Legend on request, as usual I put my process here for interested people:

Here's the sketching process step by step:
1) Sketched out the initial pose and energy with stickfigures:

2) Then I fleshed out the characters to take 3dimensional shape:

3) Then I draw on top with's a mistake I always make..I changed the pose a wee bit. Arrghh. Why do I keep doing that! It just took away the energy the drawing had :(

4) I then inked the drawing:
5) Then the most boring part..putting in the flats:

6) And finally shade the characters for the finished piece:

Request: Boxing girl + Step by Step

I started doing requests on deviantart, so here's the second one for YuukiMMD. I added a step by step for those who like to see the process from start to finish:

The sketch: This time I did my sketch in good old fashioned pencil and paper. Didn't really do any thumbnails because I looked up a pose on the net as a reference.

The inking: Not the best inking ever. Actually when I was doing the inks I really felt that this would suck. I tried some harder blacks to give it some more depth..but meh...

The flats: So I decided to use grey and work on top as I didn't want to create a background for this request.

The colors: I used 3 layers for the coloring (in Photoshop). One for the skin, one for the clothes and one for the hair. It actually really helped because I didn't need to take care to paint over another area.

Todays' show is as follows:

 And here's the break down from sketch to lineart to tonal study before I did a 360 and started cellshading :)

Tina : Edit

Sometimes I just can't quit when I'm not satisfied with something, so I ended up with this edit of the drawing I did before:

Request : Tina Rose

SO when I put up my boxer gal, I got a request from a deviantart member to draw his character. So I drew "Tina Rose" for him :

This is the character with alternative colours:

This is the initial sketch:
Sketch in more detail:

I thought it was too static so I changed the entire pose for the inking phase, on retrospec I think the first pose had more character:
