|one of the best me and nei have done together and i think this image is now a classic in the zenescope universe|
I wanted to try finishing a piece in almost full pencil without inks except the eyes and even though it was a pain it was was also fun and challenging with all the white open space. I have a thing about drawing hair and I love dropping a shadow over the eyes when ever I can so that the sparkles stand out more. I want to start offering these as an option to customers and see if it flies. Hope you guys like it and she needs a home, so if you think this will make a good holiday gift please let me know.
Can any of you tell the difference between an actual commission and a sketch? I imagine not so much, but for me there's a big difference. the real question is that if people cant really tell then why take SO long to finish a commission? i get told all the time to draw faster cause no one can tell the difference.
Well this is an actual commission and im very happy with it. i dont like to draw straight on shots of females, squared off shoulders are not attractive and that's the way Olympic swimmers swimmers stand. On top of that shes smiling and that's always hard for me, but i felt this one turned out ok.
Approaching this piece was a challenge because most of it was left uninked so the white appears more white, so i left a lot in pencil.
The snow was my fav part especially by her knee's because it looks crunchy and soft at the same time. Obviously this piece belongs to Ralph

there is a big room where all these other artist gather and mount up at an easel, and do there stuff....
i know im known for my hot chick drawings, but when holding up a piece of art for a crowd to look at u want to go with something that has more punch....this wolvie and batt piece scored the third highest bid after lee bermejo and marko dejurjovic.... which feels pretty good....and a local radio station that does comics and art interviewed me on this piece...which also feels pretty good...
