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!

Wow, its sooooooo cool, love the colours the comopsition everything!!!

Can't believe you did it in copic... i'm always so scared to mess it up!

lol and i feel your pain, i had o buy copics for uni.. yeah, my wallet was lonely after, money all gone.

Just a uestion how did you get the white patch in his eye? i cant seem to get such fine detail for my concept renders.

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 ^^;
