The Spirit Fan Art

Here he is! In all his glory! His red tie afloat, the Spirit senses a mystery in the air…

The inking and drawing were super fun. I worked a bit larger than I normally do, allowing me full use of my brush-- whereas I'm normally glued to my nib pens! I don't color digitally very often, but I think it looks slick and appropriate in this case. :) Long live the Spirit!

Akira Fan Art

For last week's "AKIRA" themed fanartfriday.

 It’s Tetsuoooo! I had to watch the movie again, and I’m glad that I did. Last time I saw it, I was pretty little! I didn’t remember how dark and gritty it is. Really, the only image that stuck with me over the years was Tetsuo growing large and out of control. But… I thought I’d draw him keeping his cool. ;)

I did two versions. The inked one came first. Then, I decided to try out some watercolor. I don't work in color as often as black and white, so I'm still learning how to scan and adjust it properly! I hope it looks ok! :)
