If I ever need humbling artistically I go read the contest comments to remind myself I generally suck. Or people and their opinions on the internet suck. 👍 Still it's got more feelings then all the fancier pieces, so I'm bloody proud! #Istandbymywork!
Thanks to this contest I was able to fix my computer and now it doesn't crash xD
;_; *sniff* so this is as far as my computer will let me go with this- Im blaming it on > img.photobucket.com/albums/v38… errors. Since people are actually looking at this piece, if anyone knows what this is and how to fix it, I havent seen any ones that work online.. it bugs when items are saved so you lose alot of work because you cant save x.x;
:> I entering this for fun, the big shots are gonna come out near the end and smash us ;_; so this is in dedication to the some of the only time i have had with my lil half bro and me introducing him to the Tomb Raider/world of gaming years ago xD (havent seen him since) what fun :>

Just when I thought it'll be just digital painting realistic style stuff. Im happy you made it !
She's so deadly here! YEAAAA
lol this is so like last year but I will still congratulate you DDD
And congratulations on 2nd place.
If you are indeed a "little guy" then you have learned a valuable lesson in all of this. The winner isnt decided till the winner is decided. Meaning, its not always obvious who deserves to win, and who doesnt. Art is highly subjective, and there isnt one way of accomplishing beautiful art.
I know this is kinda late. But i am entering contest too, and seem hopelessly outmatched. Still, maybe one day i will be able to put my old-school style to some use, for someone.
Aww, Thank-you for this wonderful comment, I had a rough day!
I love traditional comic style, I hope you do super well in the future and promote that style more! & Yes I find it FAR more interesting then photorealism too!
I love comic/manga styled art, some of the most amazing artists I've ever seen 'in my opinion' draw these styles and are so underrated compared to those who can do photorealism. I'm no where near as skilled as the pros- but I try to show my 'love' of the art-form in my works and really do try.
It is wonderful knowing that there is some people who can see it for the skill it does take- and not have some highly ignorant opinion that somehow it is a "lesser-art style' and 'super easy' like many people on Deviantart who have voiced their opinion to me. But hey there are always going to be people like that in ever aspect of life :/ boo.
Keep going with what you enjoy most :> It seems there are still people out there who appreciate it and even us little guys can surprise the big-timers! xD
Glad i can pass on the good vibes.
Growing up, my heroes were artist like jim lee, marc silvestri, and j.scott campbell.
I actually got to meet the later. And jim lee is head of DC creative, and living the big time, redesigning our childhood (new52) and even videogames. So us "lowly" line artist might have a chance at redemption just yet
Thanks for the inspiration !
DA needs a comment editor.
Art is what we see, Not what others see. Beautiful piece.
By the way, She looks dangerous.
This style is awesome.
I sketched a rough idea on normal paper and did the rest in CS3 with my old Wacom Bamboo :>
