So here’s a pic I just wrapped up. This one is actually based on a fanfic I wrote about eight or nine years ago (unreleased, I never shared any of my fics). It’s set just before the Cell Games when Goku and Gohan were in constant Super Saiyan mode. I always thought Gohan’s Super Saiyan look was really cute (Super Saiyan 2 as well, but that’s a pic for another day). I think this is also the first time I’ve drawn young Chi-Chi, so there’s that too for you guys.
This is a quick drawing I did a few months ago. I have a bunch of pics like this (by which I mean, quick sketches that I meant to flesh out but never did) sitting around on my laptop. Hopefully now that I’m finding more time to work on these things I can wrap a few of them up. I feel I’ve improved a bit since I drew this, so hopefully it’ll hold up for you guys.
I’ve done a few pics similar to this in the past, and they’re always relatively well-received. This is the first time we’ve had both the older and younger male being the same person, but DBZ’s time travel shenanigans make all sorts of fun things possible. Both versions of Trunks seem to be enjoying this quality time with their mother. 😉
Let’s wrap the month of March up with this Dragonball Z pic. This isn’t part of a series, but if it was it’d be the second following October’s Ash or Ashley? pic. I drew this one a few months ago, working on it a little here and there between commissions and other bigger projects. I’m pretty happy with the final result, I don’t get to do much DBZ stuff these days outside of the occasional Pandoras Box color job.
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.
