Present Delight

How happy were you with your presents? Some people real or fictional are just delighted when receiving something. Especially if it’s something related to a hobby or something you love. Winry from Fullmetal Alchemist would be thrilled to receive a wrench or some kind of tool right? So she became the inspiration for this one:

WIP Present Delight

Now it is not finished yet. I’m still not happy with the eyes and the background. Thinking of adding some highlights maybe. What do you think?

I used regular sketching paper because it started as a sketch with a graphite pencil. But then I added the colour with those water colour pencils. To blend it a bit I used a brush and some water. It looks wethered and I like it. Almost like an old photo that has seen many times with greesy hands and lots of sunlight fading the details. But the tool looks off. Just realised that the way she holds it now, it looks bended. Not sure if it’s even useable then..

Any thoughts? I would appreciate some feedback here..



The title said it all. 😀 I’m stuck with my first big digital project. It’s a fanart of my character in Jade Dynasty. It’s a free MMORPG. I recommend it to all who like the eastern mythology (mostly Chinese) and beautiful scenary. For more info on the game go to the official site: Jade Dynasty

So this is Mikichan my balo. At the moment she is 139 ascended, so she wears a different gear set. But it’s still her of mine favourite mount: Rising Glory. Basically it’s a flaming horse with horns and armor. I wanted to add my favourite pet too. Taiga is a grade 18 flower cloud tiger. I left it white. Maybe I’ll change it later

So what am I stuck on? Well I wanted to create a black and white piece fully drawn on the tablet. But I’m not sure on how to highlight and such.. So ideas are much appreciated!
