Been there done that messed around

Another old line art, new colors illustration:

I think that this is the last one in my ‘to color’ pile. :> Somebody is discovering brushes and lighting layers~! Very uncertain about both, but have seen them done well and would like to learn. @___@

Let me go and I will want you more

September piece I kept meaning to color:
Flat colors:

And with a flat green layer set to ‘pin light’:

I get the feeling that this is a beginner effect, but I like it. So bah.

Messing with your head again

New illustration:

Actually, I drew this in August, but only now finished/colored it.

All of those lawyers in California won’t bring her back to me

Recently finished drawings:

Marie Antoinette by ~Tallychyck on deviantART

Batgirl by ~Tallychyck on deviantART

Raccoon Superheroine by ~Tallychyck on deviantART

Get my coat and make it snappy

Another illustration:

I heart Batgirl: Year One. Marcos Martin draws an awesome Batgirl.

I’m working on my inking and experimenting with spot blacks. Thus the butt hatching and such.

It could be considered using when I call you up straight out of the blue

New sketch: Spider-Woman!

I am astounded by the number of superheroes I have drawn this month (4). This is up from…what? 2 ever…? Haha. They are fun to draw. I think I will draw me some super men next.

This is for a friend who gave me his old T.V. at the beginning of winter term. It’s been sitting on my to-do list ever since! It feels so good to be done with the thesis and going down this list of oh-God-you-should-have-done-that-two-months-ago things. It will probably take another month to get up to date, but I am alright with that! Gonna start another late thing now~

You put soul inside your shattered heart

Here’s a pin-up I made for the 4th volume of Return to Labyrinth, coming out this August:

David Bowie, you are ridiculously fun to draw. Jennifer Connelly, it’s a little weird because you look like my mom.

I watched Labyrinth yesterday before beginning this, and realized that I actually had seen it before, but hadn’t remembered. I must have been at a friend’s house, half-watching and half-playing something else, because it’s an extremely fuzzy memory. What a fun movie,though!

Know what else was a fun movie? IRONMAN 2. Expect fan art.

I’ll miss you when I’m lonely, I’ll miss the alimony too

I’m cleaning up my favorite illustrations today so I can take them to a printer on Friday and get some nice prints for conventions. Here’s an example of the kind of tweaks I do last-minute:

That lake illustration from last week: I really liked it, but it lacked depth and something about the composition was off (the ripples are out of perspective, too, but I didn’t mess with that).

I added a lot of shading on the rocks, water, and some darker color at the edges of the sky, made her coat darker, and made the tree line fade to gray in the distance; all attempts to draw the eye to the center of the picture and make things look more 3D. I fixed some shading I didn’t like on her leg as well. And I just like that scarf better in periwinkle. :P

This is where the magic happens

The finished illustration from last night. Well, okay, there are actually some things I want to tweak later (the water and the tone balance in the foreground), but the done-for-now illustration.

…So PS, she was going to be watching a boy kissing a mermaid in that lake. For reals. But I changed my mind.

I scheduled another UStream broadcast for Wednesday night, when I will be inking for my thesis comic. Hope you can make it!

itsudemo darekaga kitto soba ni iru

I inked this piece tonight and broadcast part of it live on UStream. I’m sorry there wasn’t any warning; it was a last-minute decision and a test to see what broadcasting was like. When I try it again I will give you some warning in case you want to catch it live! :)

Of course, you can follow me on Twitter for the most up-to-the-second updates about things like this. :P
