I received an invitation from some previous artbook I joined. I was extremely busy with my night shift work and commissions but it was another great opportunity to have my work published and get paid at the same time so I just had to enter.
The theme is obviously anime character with wings. The cute image doesn’t really fit my style so I tried a serious approach. This image was not supposed to have wings but I thought I could use an old sketch and make it to something.. I was drawing this during a convention..
i was also working on it at work during break.. =P
I managed to finish the pencil art before December (view full image) and started doing the colored version right away because I had personal circumstances ahead but this colored wip doesn’t impress me much so I was really thankful that they extended the deadline to January 8.
There was still some time to work on this one so I was able to revise the colors and came up with a not-so-colorful version but it fits the concept I was going for. Here’s just a little preview
pre-order a copy via kickstarter :>
Actually, I had a second entry but it didn’t get in.. =/ since i took the effort to capture the progress, might as well share it.. (click image for full view)
Here’s the link to the super full view.. =P
the background I created took me about 4hrs but later on I realized that I had a similar piece in my gallery so I flipped and rotated the image but the background didnt fit quite well.. there wasn’t much time to think of a new bg because all this time I had this idea in mind..
the 2nd pic on the right is the one I submitted but didnt get accepted.. >v<.. oh well… =/
i posted a larger version in DA (link to full view) but the details on the background was completely invisible.. v_v” i really worked hard on it but i guess 1pt brush size becomes nothing in low quality version.. i thought it was pretty much a high quality going over 1mb in file size.. >v< but anyways, here’s a somewhat hq view of a corner.. click the image for a full view..
anyways.. pre-order a copy of the Anime Angels artbook via kickstarter :>
