Scral

Posted Nov 28, 2006, 1:07:56 PM
A friend of mine's character, Scral. I used a reference from Nashya (on dA's) bust commission gallery because I really wanted to try something in more of her style. I love how she does eyes.

No, Scral doesn't have purple hair. But I thought it made her look spiffy, so I made her hair purple. I don't know if I'll ever finish this since I kind of like her hair with just flat color.

    Ohhh- you watch Nashya too? I looove her style too ^^ Very cute SmileFor those that want to know who we're talking about it's here http://nashya.deviantart.com/

    I can see alot of her style in there, although she normally has smaller mouths- the larger one suits it more I think though ^^ Is the green thing a magical tattoo? It's a bit hidden so I can't tell...

      Hey, you're on dA? What's your name there? I'll watch you! ^^

      Yeah, the green thing is a tattoo. It glows. Mostly because it can, and I like to make things glow.

        Arkillian? ^^ I don't change user names anywhere (except AIM where someone got Arkillian before me O.o I thought I made it up...)

        Figured it was a tattoo. You may want to make more skin come through so it's obvious though Yes

    I love the eyes, lips and detail ed marking on her face.
    It's very nicely done.

      Thank you--the tattoo on her face (whoo! glowy tattoos!) was a lot of fun to do.

        I wish I could draw a detailed tatto without making it the size of the person's face. Ahahah!

          lol, just zoom in close and doodle. That's how I do it.

            Lmao, I mean drawing with a pencil on paper, old school stlyes Lmao!

    Sheesh, I wish I could color like that. xD But sadly, I can't, and I don't really like digital coloring anyway. Ponder It's cool if other people do it, but I don't think it's for me. Oh well.

    But anywho, this is very nice. ^^ I just checked out this...Nashya, person's stuff, and I have to say you adapted her style well. I likes it very much, I does. ^^

      Digital coloring takes a while to get used to, especially if you don't have a pressure-sensitive tablet to help you.
      • Nov 28, 2006
        Ah. Well, I don't have a tablet at all. Sweat Drop I tried photoshopping something with my mouse once and...well, I've had better luck with paint. Doh

          Erg, a mouse? I remember using a mouse a long, long time ago... It's really hard to do anything with a mouse, but using a tablet stylus is just like holding a pencil.
          • Dec 1, 2006
            Cool. xD I wouldn't mind that. I'm a bit broke though, so I think a tablet's still a bit out of range for me. Sick I guess I'll stick with improving my traditional media for now. Using a mouse sucks, and the fact that it's a trackball really doesn't help. >< It's like drawing with an ice cube...'cept round.
