Decided to try my hand with pixels with the pencil tool, instead of the brush tool in photoshop.

I grabbed one of the Kozue character concepts from the Utena movie gallery at Empty Movement and went to work at it. Maybe I should have done her car form…
(there’s so much visual information for the front of her hair and not the back so it looks flat, and it’s where I decided to call it quits on this image)

Edit: good god that looks terrible. Here, have a grey background

This is a young Victorian woman named Ethel.

I don’t quite have her design entirely down yet. I’m trying to keep consistency in the ‘roundness’ of her skirt and sleeves, need to finalize a boot design. The problem I’m having is drawing bigger so I can get her facial details correctly.

Drawing the wing was really fun and I can’t wait to do it again, and correctly.

geez I haven’t digital painted in forever
Great to see I still adore bold colors
Doing this for a friend because I promised

Here have a terribly rendered flag (that is not how folds work jfc did you learn nothing from years of still life assignments?)

p.s. there is supposed to be a hand holding it in the middle where it seems to inexplicably disappear into a wormhole in the pole and reappear a bit further down.

p.p.s. This is unacceptable, I’m going to redo the folds

p.p.p.s. also I got tired of the default ps brushes and used Kecky’s Magical Brushes, particularly the 6th one called “Smoooooth” which wonderfully lives up to its name

This was for a meme post going around, about “if you were the person in your icon for one day what would you do?” The icon for my main account is a shot of David Tennant dressed as the hot companion assistant to Doctor Who in a sketch on a British comedy show.

If I was my icon for a day, I would spend the entire time traveling around in the TARDIS.

I’m posting this here anyway because I spent an unbelievable amount of time for such simplicity. It’s really sinking in just how rusty I’ve gotten, and using that context I’m actually really proud of the work I put into it.
