TALLER THAN YOU, SMEGGER by Kid-Apocalypse TALLER THAN YOU, SMEGGER by Kid-Apocalypse
About time I just dug in and finished. I did the outline for the pixel bit before going to the office yesterday, and then I spent most of the time after my appointment doodling Van all over notebook paper. I'll share those tomorrow.

Talk about a mix of digital media. :faint:!! I really need to work on my lack of painting skills.

Painter 9:
Pens to outline his face, oils for the color (details brushes for most things and my own custom brush for his hair), all text, my signature.

Photoshop: Outlines (the blue crap surrounding most things) smegging with his name, final save to PNG.

MSPaint: All pixel work. His hoodie was not as hard to shade as it may seem. I HATE MAKING MY OWN PALETTES :bleh:

Fonts from Dafont (yes, including the symbols)

..it's not the best, but it does show how far I've come in four years: [link] Gee whiz. I should probably redraw Kemo and Mary for a side-by-side comparison for my deviantART birthday. 'Cause, you know, it's in four days.

Thanks, I like doing these. :D It's funny how Van suddenly got amazingly easy to draw when I hadn't drawn him in a long time. Suddenly he's all over my doodle pages.

Well, that happens. Truly. I discovered if I've laboured ( and I mean that in the literal sense ) over a procedure or character, and then let it sit for a while, it seems to mature, and bloom of its own. Went a year without drawing a particular character, and when I finally did put her back down on paper, she was gorgeous! I was amazed at how she came out. :)

So wonderful. :D Now I have this perfect confidence that no matter what, he'll come out right, if not amazing. Too bad I don't have that with anyone else I draw. :shakefish:

Would it be that you have slightly more affinity for Van? :)

As weird as that sounds, it's probably true. Even though if I met him in life, I'd probably hit him in the head with a plastic lunchbox...

Thanks. :blushes: His pose is pretty blah, though... And I really really cannot paint. ^^;
