I kinda feel bad for all the cybergoth lovers on deviantART that unwatched me when I started posting fanart again, because I’ve been uploading some fucking awesome shit over the last few weeks.
Anyway, this was one of those random doodles that kinda become sorta cool when I inked it, then really cool when I colored it, and then motherfucking awesome once I took my art programs to it. GIMP doesn’t like those spray paint brushes.
I had the most awkward night at work last night. I kept getting randomly hit by OTP feels at the most inappropriate times.
Ringing out a customer? OTP feels.
Pushing carts? OTP feels.
Helping a customer pick out printer ink? OTP feels.
So have some derpy AkuRoku that I drew on some receipt paper.
And here's a few more doodles from the last two days.
In addition to the random OTP moments, I was also in a pony mood, so I drew a few ponies. The first one is actually based off another colored drawing that everyone will probably see tomorrow or so after I'm done photoshopping it, of some random cyber dude with foam and tubes coming out of his head that I also put in pony form and may possibly have a new pony OC because of it.
His name is Rivet Head. His cutie mark is a biohazard symbol.
The second one is my Jane pony, who I've named Cotton Candy after her color scheme. Her cutie mark is Jane's star tattoo.
These two are from the other night.
At first, I drew this really awesome goth chick, and then her hairstyle reminded me of Larxene, so I drew Larxene.
Titled because I used my new distress ink on the background.
OKAY SO I REALLY REALLY LIKE THIS ONE BECAUSE I USED A MORE SEMI-REALISTIC APPROACH AND IT LOOKS REALLY REALLY COOL AND I THINK I NEED TO USE IT MORE OFTEN.
Oh, and this isn't Jane; it's just a random cyber girl who turned out looking kinda like Jane. Jane's head isn't shaved, nor does she have a septum piercing or stretched ears.
Also her clothes are supposed to be PVC, I hope I was able to show that in my coloring.
I was trying to make a really quick picture because I'm always envious of those artists that can upload 564832773648 pictures in one week, but it still took me several hours because I just had to do this in my moleskine which has a weird paper texture so my fineliners - which normally only take seconds to fully dry - take almost an hour to dry enough where I can erase the pencil without smearing anything.
And I haven't done any cybergoth pictures in a while, so we've got a very colorful, half-nekkid Jane.
The coloring and gel pen highlights aren't the greatest because the drawing is only four inches high, so it's quite small.
Alternate title: "Fun with duct tape"
Scanner killed most of the details, but I was able to save the colors.
When I went to Michael's last, I found these sexy Prismacolor illustration markers, which are basically colored fineliners and since I work with fineliners a lot I bought them. They didn't have a full pack of the sizes I wanted (.005 and .03) so I got the brush tip ones, which are workable, but still don't give me that really thin line I use for detailing.
Most of the drawing is ballpoint pen, with some darker details on Jane being these illustration pens, as well as the full background.
Title and art inspired by Depeche Mode.
Jane is my cyber OC and belongs to me.
I'm beginning to seriously love ballpoint pens as an art tool.
I need to invest in a better white pen soon; my white gel pen was barely noticable over the pen and marker, and the paint pen a). kept liquifying the gel pen and turning the highlights in her hair pink, and b). has too wide of a point on it; the highlights are too thick and look weird.
And apparently, I am forever fated to draw female characters with huge gigantic tits.
Though other than the normal “I suck at anatomy and her head is forever too huge (and that her boobs could never possibly fit into her bodice without spilling out and becoming a free peepshow),” this has to be one of my favourites in quite a while.
Tools for this drawing: fineliner, ballpoint pen, gel pen, Prismacolor markers, the occasional Sharpie, and white paint pen.
And I must remind myself that if I ever want to draw on the inside cover of a sketchbook again, that I need to buy one with a hard cover, because this was a bitch to draw on.
