Added another one!

Added another piece to the Color Gallery. This one is an illustration done for my Illustration 1 class; medium used is an acrylic wash over white acrylic gesso.The project was to creat an illustration for a game DVD jewel case cover. My illustration was based on GUNZ Online, a 3rd/1st person online shooter that is now being published and hosted in North America by I enjoyed the mayhem experienced playing that game at the time, so that was my decided game.

While she doesn't resemble my past GUNZ Online character, she (much to my happiness) resembles the model used for my photo reference. The girl actually has large eyes, and her lashes were very long. I didn't get the lashes into my character's facial features, but I like the eyes. The model got to see my illustration and was very pleased, exclaiming "Wow! That's me!". Even my teacher, who isn't one for the anime style, liked my illustration. With a bit more contrast, this could've been a much better piece.

You can't see it, but she also has a sword strapped to her waist. In GUNZ Online, a player can use both swords and guns. I didn't manage to get the entire picture in, because I was using a 2 megapixel Kodak camera for "scanning" it into my computer. Aaah, the things I improvise with, eh? On that note, I'm out of here. I'm on my way to my sister's and then to the movies to see Grindhouse. Seriously, that movie looks like fun. :D
