quicksilver // walk it off // digital art

Yes, another piece of Pietro Maximoff fanart.

   This one is sort of spoilersish, so if you haven't seen Age of Ultron, don't look at this too closely :)

   You know when Cap said "if you get hurt, hurt 'em back. You die... walk it off."

   Well, that's the quote for this one.

   Walk it off, man.

   Actually, the only reason I did the quote and red swipe thing is because I was too lazy to draw his eyes. But let's not talk about that part :)

   Not really happy with the way his hair turned out. I liked it much better in the other one. But I am happy with his clothes, though the shading wasn't enjoyed as it usually is. And the cloudy stuff added something to it I liked, I think it gave it a more serious feel.

   Anyway, which Quicksilver do you like better? The first, or this one? Personally, I'm more happy with the way that one came out then this one, but I'd love to hear what you think!

gogo tomago // big hero 6 // digital art // new header

Hey everyone!

Just watched Big Hero 6 last week. Wow, great movie. Full of emotion (and beautiful animation). But no spoilers in this post...

My favorite characters were Tadashi, Baymax, Fred, Wasabi, Gogo Tomago, and well... everybody else.

So yeah, right after we saw it, fanart ideas went whirling through my head. Though this one is pretty simple, I thought I'd do it anyway.

Yep, it's the speedster (huh, I seem to go for those in favorite character picks *ahem* Pietro *ahem*) Gogo Tomago!

Love her hair. That was pretty fun to do, and the gum was too. Her face didn't turn out quite right, but I'm happy enough with it. Also, I could've done better on her jacket and expression, but this wasn't that serious anyways.

Oh, new background and header! I thought I'd give it a little more digital flavor, since I'm working on that a lot nowadays.

Do you like it better than the one before?

Well, hope you like Gogo from Big Hero 6! Think I should give Tadashi a try? :)

pietro maximoff // digital art

Hey guys!

   Yes, digital Pietro is finally here. Actually, I've been done with this one for awhile now... but I had touch ups to finish up :)

   Like the flowy blue stuff, the pattern on his shirt, the refracted light... ugh, no wonder it took so long to finish. But I'll talk about all of that in the upcoming making-of post.

   Hope you guys like this one! I'm working on touching-up another Pietro (this one more sketchy and unfinished then this one) digital piece now, so watch out for that.

he's fast // quicksilver // pencil and colored pencil

   So, drowning in feels from the Avengers: Age of Ultron (which we saw the day it came out), I thought I'd do a quick (lame pun) sketch of my favorite character from the movie.

   No, not Cap (though he is my favorite Avenger for obvious reasons), Tony, Thor, Bruce (nope), Clint, the Vision, or Nat (definitely not her, ugh), but a new character, Pietro Maximoff.

   You didn't see that coming?

   Note that this was just a quick sketch, I didn't put lots into it. I'm thinking about doing a better one on grey tinted paper. Thoughts? Also, maybe one of Wanda on said paper that says, she's weird.

   I'm working on a digital art piece of him (it's going great so far, he's super fun to draw), so be watching for that in the near future.

 Oh, and about what happened to him in the end.

I didn't see it coming.

sky and clouds // digital art

   Hey guys!

   Here's some more digital art. I just did this today, and accidentally did it all on the same layer. Shh, don't tell anybody :)

   And I learned that if I had separated it, I could have done the clouds on a different layer, so I could have better added the stars without getting into the other clouds.

   Eh, live and learn, I guess.

   I'll be working on some more digital art, so keep a weather eye out for that :) Think I should do some more skylines, do ya think?

Thanks for viewing, guys!

little mj // oc // digital art

   Hey guys! I've got it for you. My first finished piece of digital art yet!

   My Wacom Intuos pen and touch medium arrived on April 25th, and I've been playing around with it since then. Lots of rough sketches and unfinished pieces.

   But I really like it so far, everything is so nice and clean. The layers really help, though I do get mixed up with which one I'm on. I've had to erase a bunch because I put them on the wrong layer.

   I thought I'd do another drawing of my Star Wars OC character, MJ, when she was just a little girl.

    I used mostly cel-shading on her clothes and montrals (head-tale-things), but just regular shading of her skin/lips. The shading part was definitely my favorite, I love the clean look of cel-shading.

   Her lips were actually pretty fun, though I think they might be a little too large. Her skin was kind of hard to do, with all of the tones of red and all.

   I decided to do the background pretty simply, instead of the bunk I had pictured her sitting in at the beginning of sketching this out.

  Ugh, lineart is not my thing. I guess my hands are just too unsure of themselves, it ended up pretty shaky and I had to erase and re-do a lot of it. Also, the lineart is too thick for my liking, though it did reduce the shakiness.

   Anyway, that's my first digital piece! Watch out for more of my art, not just digitally, but traditionally too :)

Thanks for viewing, guys!
