Now that I got a proper tablet to use, I’ve taken to coloring more readily. One of the things I did to get into things was participate in a lineart coloring contest. We’ll see how it goes but it was great practice if anything! Great thanks to Suiish for letting me take part.
Done with a Wacom Intuos 4 Large tablet and Photoshop CS6.
A little while back, someone I knew on deviantART was having hardware problems. They were getting quite behind on requests and even their personal work, and it was coming to a complete standstill. All because a mouse on their PC wasn’t working.
Since my parents had come back from their store, they had a ton of computer stuff sitting around, including obsolete desktops. I took a spare PS/2 mouse lying around at the time, mailing it across the country to them. Long story short, they were extremely grateful and were able to resume work once again.
In return, they drew Princess Kida, together with Raine Sage and Twilight Princess Zelda. The joke is that Kida lost some sort of bet, and such she has to take on a “kawaii” persona, outfit included. They drummed up the last part but I really enjoyed it.
This is the first time I got thank-you art for anything I had done online, so it was quite thrilling to know I was able to help someone out! You can check out the artist here.
This was part of an art trade I did with deviant user Cam-Sama. I had drawn a rough sketch of her character Randy, and she had done my Space Raptors character MTech with a bughat girl. This came out real cute and it’s nice to see this sort of art style with said characters.
This was another piece that Tonks_92 did of one of my OC’s. I actually thought I had lost this one, until I found a USB drive that I hadn’t touched for years until recently (it’s no longer online). The hair came out real nice in tone. This was the last piece they ever did for me, haven’t really talked to them since then.
This was part of an art trade I was involved in earlier this summer. Benit149 drew Britney from Space Raptors as a chibi, as I was supposed to draw one of her characters in return. It’s so adorable, and quite cute! Do check out their stuff here.
When I was getting my feet wet back on the deviantART community, an artist by the name of Tonks_92 drew this picture from my Space Raptor stories. I liked it a whole lot, my cousin liked it a whole lot. In fact, he had it printed out and pasted to his computer hutch for a number of years. This is still a special piece for me because it kind of captures my ambition and ideal of the story for the time.
This was my 3rd attempt at spaceship pixel art back when I was starting to feel comfortable doing digital art. I took a lot of inspiration from Starblade and Project Dragoon in its design, wanting something sleek and more airplane looking. Done in MS Paint and with a trackball mouse!
