Cel Commission


for: :iconultimatezer0:

A commission of the spiky OC, Drake.

Dude looks like he'll get you, your family, and all your friends on facebook for looking at him the wrong way.

I was given a little freedom to play around with his environment, so this is what I ended up with. Turned out quite nicely. :nod:

Hopefully I'll get the final approval for a couple other commissions I have sitting on my hard drive right now. It'd be nice to share them.



How it was made...



Made in Photoshop CS5 Extended
This Work is 100% Digital

How did I miss this from the inbox? D:

It looks really cool, and it feels just like I'm looking at an anime shot :D

I just have to wonder what....is he? Demon?

I decided to bite the bullet and just go ahead and become a screenshot printer. It's not as bad as I thought it would be. :XD:

Your guess is as good as any. I'm not even sure if =ultimatezer0 knows what he is. There were no words in the commission description, only image links. :D

Screenshot printer is a good thing in my opinion, since it captures whatever life and motion usually limited only to animation :nod:

I'll just settle to either a Demon or a Dragon.

No problem! XD probable most appropriate explanation would be that he is a victim of genetic mutation. :D

Yes. Something you're good at that only you can do. Your unique doujinshi definitely fall into that category. :nod:

At first I thought wish was a fan art of a scene out on an anime until I read the description. Really good job!

Thanks! I've reluctantly tried not to make my work look totally like a screenshot, but I found that it's not such a bad thing after all. :XD:

I personally think it's amazing when people can make their art like a screen shot. I know it'd take me such a long time to do it. I'm glad that you've decided that it's not such a bad thing! :D

Thanks! A little experimentation (and a lot of thumbnail drawings) seems to pay off when you're not sure how to tackle a piece.

Glad it worked out this time. :)

Great :3

It would probarly need to be a bit more vibrant, thou.
Reply
:iconthatld:
thatLD Featured By Owner Nov 20, 2011  Professional Filmographer
Thanks. I purposefully cut back on the vibrance just because he started to look too green, at least to me. He's not the sort of character to jump out at you with color.

I'll get better at balancing color in future work, though. :nod:
