: Slice : lines by Amarynceus : Slice : lines by Amarynceus
I seem to end up drawing Erin d'Iusoin the most out of all the crew of the Silverfish for some reason, despite her being a lesser main character. Here she is in what might finally be the end design for armour for the Silverfish's Marines. Note that the ponytail/topknot is not at all canon; it sort of took on a life of its own and said "draw me really, really excessively long so I can loop around that sword hilt there.

Anyway... notice what's missing? Huh? Huh?

That's right. NO CROSSHATCHING CRAZINESS. Hell, no hatching of any sort, even. Usually i start in on the shading before I even finish the lines (hell, a lot of the time I'm inking the top part of something while the bottom is still scribbly pencilly bits). But this time I made an effort to complete the whole line stage without starting in on any other stages...

This took longer than it ought to have, but it's part of a present so that's okay. The full (and silly) drawing should show up in a day or two.

If for some reason anyone wanted to colour this, just ask and I'd gladly send the full size file. I plan on using it for colouring practice myself. I'd be more than curious to see what someone competent could do with my shaky linework. ;)

oh, yeah, usual stuff, rapidographs, bristol, about 5" high or so.

MURDER!
I DO want to colour these lines, but I'm a pixel artist and there's no way in hell I'd work on something that large. So I took your lines, mashed them down to 1/5th original size (I think) and re-drew the lines over it again. I really hope you don't mind that I did this, and anywhere they're shown or used by me will have your name in close tail.

The only thing that really suffered was the face. When/if I get around to colouring it, I'll make it look purdy again.

Hey, that looks pretty cool :D Me likey. Probably with the face, just getting rid of the line of the teeth will help a bit -- but you're the pixel artist not me. ;) I look forward to seeing what you do with it.

A NEW NOTE!
I've gone no further in my shading; I was working on other things. HOWEVER, upon showing my progress on your lines in a forum I go to, I was asked for permission from others to use your lines. I don't feel comfortable at all letting them use "my" lines without your consent, so I'm asking on my, your, and their ('splain THAT one, ha) behalf if I could offer the lines up HERE:

'Tis "The lines den" thread of a pixeller-friendly forum. The idea is that people provide lines for others to colour if they feel so inclined. I'd love it if you'd let me, but I can understand if this is taking it too far out of your view.

Sure, I don't mind. Go for it. ^^ You've already credited me with the original, so I don't have any objections.

Very close to done. 25ish colours, still haven't Anti-Aliased everything, and a couple of colours are too similar to... justify existence.

Yap. Hopefully I didn't misinterpret anything.

Not completely happy with how the metal is coming, and a couple of colours are subject to changes. I'll keep you updated.

Thanks! Yeah, I'm trying to find a slightly new style for my comics and stuff, aiming for a stronger and mroe defined lines. Commitment is an issue for me in many respects, and it shows up in the light and tenuous lines of a lot of my pen work -- heavy lines intimidate me somewhat, if that makes any sense.

I've never seen Silverfish, but that does look a happy character. As for varying your technique, I applaud you, its so easy to get stuck doing the same thing over and over.
