My entry into the "OC's at their best" contest :3 [link]

This was pretty fun :D! Characters are Maxine and Kristov from my comic, #ArtSchoolSubRosa :iconartschoolsubrosa:, which quite shamefully I haven't updated for a month- Sorry guys, that's what happens when bioware releases a new game! *Dragon Age 2 addicted*

So I'm thinking Max either lost a bet, was offered a lot of cash, or least likely but still possible puppy-dog-eyed at to model for Kris. Not that he really needs her to pose for more than a minute with his eidetic memory, but we don't need to remind Max about that :P That'd be cock-blockin'


I didn't want to do just a "character sitting about looking pretty" thing for this, but in a roundabout way I kinda have- but at least I incorporated personality into their poses and created a little humour :P.. the rules said that you should only have one character per entry... so uhhhh... Max doesnt really count D:

Done in paint tool SAI and photoshop on a wacom cintiq 12WX

Hopefully I'll get back into comic pages soon. Have a few commissions to do, and would like to do a lot of traditional painting too as I feel I've been neglecting it.

Also, painting within a painting... WE CAN GO DEEPER?

This is one of my favorite entries, but it breaks the rule of "only one character per entry". I don't know if you can fix that, but it's really good and has nice composition and use of color.

I know, I didnt realise til like a month later that that rule was in place. I think it'd ruin the composition if I cropped her out though :/

Kris really enjoys living life on the edge doesn't he? XD Either that or he just likes Max to hit him. :giggle: All in all the detailing is simply amazing! I mean right down to the little paint bloches on the pants, to the painting within that looks like an actual textured canvas. Just wonderful and playful!:la:

Good luck in the contest, Kayla!:la::la::la:

He's such a rapscallion! Maybe the painting will be pretty enough to ditract Max from the obvious artistic liberties he has taken XD
Thanks so much! Keep your fingers crossed for me!

But yet, it's very easy for him to get away with such things. XD I'm sure once Max sees it, she'll totaly love how he made her look.:giggle:

Oh I shall dear lady...I shall!:love:

The whole picture just looks like I walked in on Krisand he's taking a "creative break".
I don't know how long Max could pose ,but what I really like is how the pose an picture don't even match up! She looks so miserable and in the pic she is blisfully smiling. And I like how you did her foot. Very nice job on the draping;that would have killed me by now.
I like also how the guy has paint smudged on his cheek. And the Batman belkt buckle! Reminds me so much of the Big Bang Theory.

The draping nearly DID kill me, it took for aaaaaages :P

Kris and Howard Wolowitz are nearly style twins. Nearly XD!

I'd say Kris is a little more ahead than Howard. I doubt he shops in the boy's department!

No, he's a little too tall for the boys department... and he'd never touch a turtleneck half-shirt thingy D:. Its the whole shirt or nothing!

I rarely notice when a comic takes a while to update, actually. It's given me the chance to catch up on several others I have taking up space in my bookmarks <: D I read waay too many online things.

I know what you mean... I'm trawling mangafox every other day.... I end up picking at random and 80% of the time I choose something crap to read, then feel like "Goddamn, I wonder if my comic is this bad to other people?"

atomicqueen Featured By Owner Apr 5, 2011  Student Digital Artist
Hee. I think if you're aware of that sort of thing, and do your best to avoid it, then you're good! ;D
And your followers (at least skimming over the comments on this) actually give you alright feedback rather than fawning and saying how "kawaii" it is so you can probably also take that as a good sign.

Some parts of my comic make me cringe mega-bad... Kinda wanna start again, but I've already done that once and its just a whole thing.... best to move on and try to get the fuckin' thing written and finish something for once in my life XD

Ahh, your own worst critic and all that. But yeah, you'll feel much better just getting it done than going back and re-doing it! :D
I don't seem to be able to take that sort of advice for myself, though <:I I was trying to finish my nanowrimo novel and hit a dead spot. When I finally got a flash of inspiration I ended up re-writing the whole chain of events to get the flow happening better. *facepalm* why can't I make it easier for myself, aurgh.
