Wanderer

After several visits at the orthopaedic specialist and an MRT scan, I finally found out the reason for my shoulder pain: Slipped disk in my neck. I really didn't expect it was something so severe, but it was. Now I got two injections to the incarcerated nerve under a CT and I'm fine. Yay! I could finally draw again (although it was still a bad idea; the pain came back a little after I finished the coloration).

It may not look like it, but the coloring was so annoying.
But let's start with the sketch first. It's an old sketch of a picture I drew of my Ragnarok Online gypsy, but never finished. Saturday I woke up and just felt like finally drawing a fanart of one of the new classes. Since arc bishop and wanderer are the only classes I can stand, the choice which one to pic wasn't too hard.

I made some other sketches of possible poses first, but I didn't like them too much. Then I remembered I still had this one lying around somewhere, which I always liked a lot.

I spent a lot of time on the lineart, and I'm pretty satisfied with it for a change. I even cleaned it up in photoshop this time, what I almost never do. But I wanted it to become more perfect than usual. And then....... I messed up the coloring.

I even had to throw away another half finished coloration because I picked the wrong color for the golden balls. On the second try, I realized 4 copics I needed for this picture died on me and I had to improvise with other ones. Then I was nearly finished, but wasn't content with the blue-white hair which didn't come out on the blue-white wings, so I made the wings darker and used too much opaque white pen on the hair and completely messed it up. It made me realize that it was a bad idea to stick to my gypsy's colortheme, just because I was curious how she would look like as a wanderer and then decided to redo the hair in blonde. Thanks to my mother for giving birth to me in the century of computers and Photoshop! I fused them together, and what came out you already saw above.
I'm just still not really satisfied with the end result, just because I had something nicer in mind when I finished the lineart. I should probably color it again, but with Photoshop this time.

  1. Sooo... It's been some time since I've heard from you. You're not even on msn and I'm not gonna stalk you on facebook ~ so you might wanna pop up sometimes in the A town. I've been keeping your stool warm for you :p Plus the community is seriously missing some common sense lately and it drives me nuts. Anyways, stop being dead on the internet and let me know how you've been.

    Cheers,
    Roisin
