Umm... wow, I completely fell off the wagon here. I didn't mean to just randomly stop drawing ATU fanart. Oops!

Although technically, I've been doodling since I did the holiday sketches... I've just been having a hard time getting any completed pictures. I've done three or four drafts of a total group picture that had to be scrapped (for various reasons), and the same goes for a picture of just the guys all together. Sigh.

Anyway, I'm kind of hoping that this picture will chip away at the ATU-Art-Block currently taking up space in my brain... because I like drawing these characters. So, here you go~



I guess you can consider this a birthday present, Dua-kun. Roll Eyes

Ooh fluffies! *attempts to steal that jacket* XD

You're shading always looks so good, Kadri. But I think the shadows on his face may be going the wrong way if that orb this is emitting light. ^^;

Yeah, the facial shadows aren't exact, but I didn't have a lighting reference to go by and it was probably about midnight when I finished the sketch... so I'm not fussed about it. Although technically, I'm not sure if the orb IS emitting light. XD

Okay, long as your aware. And I understand what a pain in the ass face shadows can be, especially if the shadows are coming towards you. Something about that perspective feels wrong when you're doing it. ^^;

So I have some good news, and then I have some bad news... Roll Eyes

Good news: I have a finished drawing of Kari to put up, and I have two group pictures (one of Irish's three henchmen characters) that are currently in-progress.

Bad news: I don't have access to a scanner while we're in the hospital... so I have to wait until I get home to scan and post the new stuff. And we could be here for another 2 weeks (or longer), depending on how fast Bug bounces back from the chemo.

On the bright side, I should have plenty of time to finish the two WIPs. XD

lol, well it's good you're using your downtime productively. ^^

Hopefully the little man will start getting better soon so you can take him home. I'm sure he'll recover better if he's in a more comfortable environment. :3

lmao... Well, I have to do something in the wee hours of the morning when no one else is awake. XD

It's going to be a while before we get to go home, because Bug's counts need to come back up before the doctor will talk about releasing him. We've got at least another week or two to go.

Yeah... so those two WIPs are still in-progress... >>;

But I'll get back to work on them later today, so (hopefully) I should be able to finish them before the end of this month. I'm feeling inspired.

In the meantime, I finally got around to scanning that picture of Kari... so here it is:

Simply amazing, Kadri. But then I've come to expect nothing less from you. ^^
You always to manage to find amazing stock for reference too. I'm a little envious of that skill. Tongue

Glad you like it. Smiley

I started "collecting" stock a while back... Now, any time I come upon something that I like (a pose, a particular facial angle, an action shot, etc), I save it to my stock folder. And I've gathered quite a few pictures just during the time I started drawing ATU fanart... I've probably got three or four hundred images on my flash drive now, and I'd say at least a third or a fourth of them came from hunting ATU references. Not that I've used all of them--but I found them, so I saved them. It's a handy folder to hunt through when I need some extra inspiration.

Woooow, that's a lot of images. O.o
Collecting them is a really good idea though. I've always just gone to posemaniacs, but their selection of poses is sadly limited, and searching stock on DA take a lot of time and sifting. Maybe I'll borrow your idea of just hording it in a folder for when I need it. ^^;

Just remember that, if you're saving actual stock images, it's a good idea to save the stock artist's name into the title. Some of the stock artists that I like on deviantART have this crappy habit of deleting their work or putting certain pieces into "storage"... but I try really hard to give them credit, so I try to keep track of which work belongs to which artist.

That is a good thing to do. I intend to try and put a link to the original (or at least the artist's name) in a note within the file itself. If I remember right Windows can do that kind of thing. :3
