Here’s another commission I recently wrapped up, featuring Shinobu Kawajiri and Yukako Yamagishi from JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure Part IV: Diamond is Unbreakable. This comes to us from the same patron that brought us the previous JoJo pictures and was drawn to specification via a reference image.
This is the first in a three-part series of commissioned Big Hero 6 pictures. This one features Aunt Cass disciplining her nephews for the trouble they caused her at the start of the film. I enjoyed making this pic, and I hope you guys like it to. It’s hard to say when the next one will be done, but please look forward to it!
This is a commission I recently commissioned of Trish Una from the Vento Aureo arc JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure, and “Bastet” Mariah from the Stardust Crusaders arc of the same series. I’m not terribly familiar with the JoJo franchise, but thanks to this same commissioner, I’ve now drawn it a few times and am slowly learning more about the series as I do so. 🙂
The pose used her is not original, it’s borrowed from a reference image chosen by the commissioner.
This is another Pandoras Box picture I was commissioned to color. Once again we see the boys trading their mothers a swimming pool, though this time they have little signs to go along with their naughty activities.
I’d always wanted to take a crack at this one, but I had been putting it off because I don’t have a lot of experience with water, especially bodies in water. I’m not one to shy away from a challenge, though, so I took this commission as an opportunity to try something relatively new to me. Hopefully my inexperience didn’t ruin the picture for anyone.
Before I start: Yes, I plan to color “Mom Swap A” at some point. This one came up first because it was commissioned.
I really like this picture, both by itself as well as my work on it. This is, of course, a Pandoras Box work, the original falling somewhere between a typical sketch and a fully-realized piece. Of course this allowed me a bit of leeway with the colors, though I tried to stick close to PBX’s look. I don’t have much else to say on this one, I’m afraid, other than I hope you like this swimming pool motif. It’ll be cropping up again soon.
I have no idea what the actual name of this pic is, or if it even has one, so I titled this post after my favorite part of the picture. 🙂
This is the second of four Pandoras Box pictures I’ve been commissioned to color. I was happy to do this one, since it only exists in sketch form to my knowledge, and I feel working with rough drafts and sketches is something I can do better than many other colorists. Since I ink everything I color anyway, having only a sketch to work off of isn’t a hindrance for me at all.
I hope you guys are enjoying the influx of PBX colors, and I should be able to get the other two done and posted during the month of October. Peace!
I don’t know what the real name of this picture is, but my copy is called “DBZ Request 02”. 😀
Anyway, I’ve been commissioned to color four of Pandoras Box’s pictures, and this is the first of them. After checking with PBX to make sure it’s okay (it is, PBX is awesome), I’m releasing this first one. There are certain advantages to commissioning a color job, beyond being able to hand-pick the pictures I color. One of them is getting a say in what colors are used, for example this picture uses blue eye shadow due to the specifications of the commissioner.
Anyway, I can’t say there’s any specific schedule for when the other three pictures will be done, but I hope to release them sooner rather than later. Coloring PBX usually takes longer than my average colorization, because I want to take extra time to try and maintain the original shading (including subtleties, which I sometimes have to look really close to pick out) and details.
This is a commission I recently wrapped up featuring (from left-to-right) Zelenin from Shin Megami Tensei: Strange Journey, Isako Toriumi from Persona 3, and Mari Mochizuki from Devil Survivor.
I don’t have much to say on this one, which is unfortunate as I haven’t produced much content lately. The pose was picked out by the commissioner, and I can’t take any credit for it.
This is a commission I recently completed of Bizarro raping Supergirl. There were a lot of little details to this pic, but I think that it turned out pretty good. The coloring here is done simplistically in an attempt to imitate a retro feel, since this is an older design for both Bizarro and Supergirl. I had also originally placed a filter over the image that made it look more old, but it had the unwanted side effect of darkening Bizarro’s skin and making the yellows a bit greener.
This is another commissioned piece featuring Isabeau and Argilla (who I’ve drawn before), and introducing Maki Sonomura from Megami Ibunroku Persona, the first in the acclaimed Persona series. Not too much to say about this one, other than that I like the pose the commissioner and I decided on for this one. I think everyone turned out looking pretty good.
