I did this artwork for Snippy from vk.com (id mr_snippy)
Cauze I just wanted to:
a) give him a present, cause he made my day today
b) do finally something about RA. My lovely lovely lovely thing. But I always had no time for artworks I Wanted to do. I just needed to study and work for a money.
and finally I just wanted to make something good after my long "vacation" here. I loooove to draw portraits. And RA means a lot for me. As
too. He's great artist. and, to be honest, maybe somebody thinks, he's just good artist and illustrator, but he's my lovely artist. Cause of his "dreaminism". He creates World I see. World I see every morning, every walk, every trip, every second of my life. He just can draw things I... always knew, always understood, as I felt, when I saw his "machinery of the stars" (his first artwork I saw). There's no more artists there and anywhere, who can capture this "reality" so close to another side of this reality.
I don't actually know, Who am I. Don't know, who I will become. I just know, that RA is the one and only reason, Why I Can Draw. When I saw comic about billboard, I decided, that it will be very cool, if I'll just try to draw better. than I could that time. That time... Lol. Long time ago. I drew like a child =___=. Actually I was just schoolchild that time. Now I'm in university. Now I'm an artist. Better than anybody in this university. I have orders, works. People, who work with me, Love me and my arts. In Every work I do I try to become better and better. And forever Alexiuss will be some kind of guiding light in this race with myself.
Of course, I'm not as good as he is. And I have ho refs or something to make it easier. So maybe I have some problems with proportions. But I really tried to make this Snippy perfect.
It's all PS CS5. I used 3 textures for wall (2) and for window (1). 4 different brushes and all my brain. Time? hmmm... this evening.
actually, I did "third" version of Snippy's gas-mask. Suddenly, huh. But I don't want to mark it as a mistake. I think, it looks nice.
Just forgot, how to draw nose for the second one (from which I remember only filters I like so much, cause I have the same on my own gas-mask)
bonus version with different coloring. Just love it. But it's not "right" coloring for RA at all.[link]
