Forgive me for the low quality photo, our scanner has been unplugged for months and I have no interest in trying to plug it into my own computer. I'll just wait until it gets hooked up to its original one and scan it then.
Anyway, I promised a friend that I was going to upload what I had for work samples for this year's application to the video game course I've now been trying to get into for three years. I was rejected once again (no interview either) and have just been forgetting to share anything I've drawn this whole year on the art course I've been studying at (and will again this upcoming year).
One of the later weeks, when we had been studying history, we got an assignment to make a paraphrase, in which you let yourself be inspired by an artist of your choice. It could be that you make a parody of a painting, your own take on it or in my case, a study of their style and attempt to imitate it. I obviously, as the title may have stated, took my favorite artist, Yoshitaka Amano, most known for his work on the Final Fantasy series. I love his work, both old and new, how it's flowy.
So what I've done is that I sketched the character first with a regular pencil. I then took acrylic paint, watered it down to make it more aquarelle-ish and painted in what I wished, though my brushes where too thick, so some places (mainly the non-existent tip of the blade) didn't work out well. Lastly, just for the eye lines, I took a ink pen and drew it.
It's not the best and probably not very convincing. But hey, it was fun and at some point I want to try more of it.
