Black Lagoon: Revy by mirrorofmystics Black Lagoon: Revy by mirrorofmystics
Drawn for someone else~.

I was really having fun with this picture, and then I started on her tattoo. And there's like 800 renditions for whatever reason. wtf. Like... on the manga itself, it was as if each panel had its own rendition of it.

I'm usually OCD when it comes to designs, but I felt like I was forced to give in. The Sword Cutlass pistol gave me a hard time too, but I feel like it came out okay as well.

But either way, I like how it came out here. This is the first time I drew an ear seriously (random, right?). Usually, I would just cover the ears with hair or whatever, but I decided to learn it properly this time.

Character: Revy from Black Lagoon
Time: 6-ish hours
Tools: Pencil, kneading eraser, pencil smearing thing, PS CS2.

Comments/Critiques as usual~.

FINALLY, I have time to comment! Hehehe :heart:

Ooh, this looks nice! I'm really digging her facial expression, and I like how you shaded her eye, looks pretty. I notice there's also a heavier contrast than you usually use, good job on getting darker darks. I also envy your gun-drawing skills; all of the angles look precise and mechanical rather than natural, as a gun should.

The only thing that really stands out in a negative way is her hand. It looks a little too small compared to the rest of her, though I will say the fingers look really well-drawn. I would also suggest either taking it a little easier during the sketching process or using tracing paper for your final sketch, since there's some areas where you can see lines that were previously erased (such as by her ear and above her knuckles).

I think that you're really pushing past your comfort zone by adding in a shaded background and going into detail with the tattoo and gun (I noticed your details are usually in your badass outfits). Her hair looks really shiny and soft, and congrats on drawing an ear, I'm sure you'll do more. :) Keep pushing your boundaries! You're getting great results.

<3 Thank you!

Yeah, you are right. I'm having issues on the proportions of the hand. Usually I do hand=face size. But sometimes I draw faces too small or big fir their head, so it looks super weird lol.

Yes, actually. If you look at the original pic before I cleaned it on photoshop, it looks horrendous. I press down on pencil (by habit) so like when I mess up, it looks super bad when I redo it. But I'll take your advice. This time around, I thought I went way too far to start over, but. yeah. anyway.

I was learning some realism facial features (ear/nose), and I was pretty eager to use it. :3

Thank you for the feedback! I appreciate it. <3

I thought it was okay for awhile because I was using an index card until my hand (btw, im also left handed, so this part's almost a requirement). But then I started picking up the paper and putting it onto the scanner, and that's when shit went down LOL.

Thanks for the fave~.
