Sasuke Portrait by eltania Sasuke Portrait by eltania
Practice for drawing and copics~

And my first non-chibi Naruto art is finally here! Drew this a few days ago as a sketch while reading a fanfic (forgot which one unfortunately). Don't know why I drew Sasuke instead of Naruto - I don't even like him most of the time :/

I really need to get used to working with them too. While colouring this I accidentally picked up a darker colour than what I wanted and slapped it right on =_=;;

Anyhow, I forgot how fun copics can be XD Only trouble is I have so limited colours to work with. So today I ordered some shiny new copics :D

Thought I might as well while the Aussie dollar is strong especially against USD. It means instead of getting them for around $8-9 I'd be able to get them at around $6 instead ^_^

Building up a collection sure is expensive!

Haha thank you!!! Yeah, using copics is always scary ... I feel insecure without an undo button! But as much as I love digital and working on photoshop, sometimes it's just so much simpler and fun to be colouring in stuff by hand, makes you feel like a kid haha.

Ah! I want to see some of your uni design works! :D

About the white ... I actually cheated on this pic and just fixed it up on Photoshop ^^;. It's because I somehow misplaced my white ink and gel pen =_=. I've since found the gel pen and ordered another tub ^^. But yeah, usually I use ink/paint or a normal white gel pen at the last step of the pic and it works pretty well :)

Thanks so much for the fave too~ :hug:

Lol I know what you mean! Digital has become so second-nature to people that anything hand-drawn or hand-made is different and 'impressive' ^^ Haha I will certainly try to post up more stuff (especially since I still need heaps of practice for my drawings), once I get my new batch of copics :D

Thank you again :heart::heart::heart:

Very nice the background and coloring are lovely, I wish I had more copics but they are way to expensive to get the selection I want/need lol

Thank you!! :D And I know the feeling of wanting more copics... They are fantastic markers and are worth the money, but you still feel like your wallet is bleeding afterwards ^^;
