Piper and Trickster - The Kiss

Posted Oct 24, 2008, 2:25:06 PM

Trickster and Piper kissing. Isn't it cute? And perhaps a little steamy too -- woo! And yes, I know it's just sketchy and on not the best paper. Sorry about the messy texture. I liked it, so I thought I'd share it with you.

And yes, Pipey is totally pulling Tricksy into it. That's his fist gripping fabric.

And this is just a kiss, so please don't get freaked out over it. It's just two guys kissing, which is *not* adult material.

    James looks just a mite-bit surprised to me XD But then again with Piper being grabby, I can see how that would happen.

    But ohh~ I like this very much, especially James' nose.

      Thanks to my friend, I totally see Pipey as the more aggressive one of the two.

      Except sometimes.

      But in this case, totally.

      I'm so glad you like it!! Smile

    Oooh. That's hot.
    • Oct 24, 2008
      Why thank you! Smile I'm glad you like it.

        Any time. So...er, this is going to sound silly, but what comic are these guys from?
        • Oct 28, 2008
          They're in the Rogues Gallery of the Flash. Although I don't read comics these days -- too much crappy writing -- I've always thought these two were adorable.

            Oh. -^.^- Well I shall have to check that out now. Thanks!

              You might want to check out some oooolllld issues. The stuff going on now isn't worth reading, unfortunately.

              But they used to be good! ;)

                I'll have to snoop about for the old issues then. Looks interesting. :3

    I like the texture, it gives the pic a very individual quality.
    • Oct 28, 2008
      Thanks very much! I like that particular paper best of all, as I feel it carries the lines well. I typically can influence the outcome by putting one or several different papers behind it when scanning.

      I'm really glad you like it. Smile

        I normally go for a very smooth grain with my papers. I do like textured, but I just seem to do better work with smooth.
        • Oct 29, 2008
          This is actually a shockingly smooth paper, but the papers behind it giving it more solidity certainly do have an influence on how it scans! Without them it would likely not be as solid.
          • Oct 29, 2008
            so it's just very thin paper.
            • Oct 30, 2008
              I wouldn't say very thin, but it is thin enough to be influenced by the paper behind it; since scanner light, even the scanner that I use to scan pastels, pencils, and other textured works, tends to shine well through even thick papers, one needs a backing. With thicker papers the scanner's cover usually suffices. But with thinner papers sometimes you can get some interesting effects by putting thicker, different papers behind them! It's pretty fun to play with that. Smile

                kudos to you. I don't have the patience for that. I really hate working on my art on the computer. I prefer to use my hands to work directly with my material.
                • Nov 4, 2008
                  Thank you!

                  Well, I prefer the same, but I tend to do a lot of finishing touches digitally, and of course there are a few things to be aware of when I'm scanning and getting them ready for posting...my scanners are kind of temperamental. It's just become another stage in my art. Smile
                  • Nov 4, 2008
                    I only have access to a public scanner right now, so I'm not scanning anything at the moment.
                    • Nov 5, 2008
                      Aww. Well hopefully soon! Smile
                      • Nov 5, 2008
                        hopefully. I've only got a few things but they're awesome. I've actually been learning in my classes. <.< >.>
                        • Nov 5, 2008
                          I look forward to seeing your stuff very soon! Smile
                          • Nov 6, 2008
                            well, I have to wait until I can go home to use the scanner, so that will be next weekend. also, my new stuff is different. I don't know if the scanner will eat my colored pencil technique like it always does, but I used some stuff I learned in my drawing and anatomy class. I was pretty impressed when I was done. any advice on getting colored pencil to not look too grainy?
                            • Nov 6, 2008
                              Unfortunately I'm just lucky that one of my scanners even picks up my pastels and pencils! I would say to make sure that the colour levels are nice and even and that visually it looks acceptable to you, but that's kind of a no-brainer, I'm sure you know that already.

                              Generally they're going to look grainier than ink of course, especially up close. The best way to avoid them looking grainy is to shrink the picture so that people can't see the grain! But personally I think it's the slightly grainy qualities that give a picture texture and character. I wouldn't want to hide them. Smile

                                I'm starting to like the grain more, but I still prefer to have my paper as smooth as possible.
                                • Nov 11, 2008
                                  It's really just up to you. I think that if you work with the scanner and know its particulars, you'll get what you like most. Smile
