NinjaGo - Sketch Card by skcolb NinjaGo - Sketch Card by skcolb
Here's one of those artist trading card things. :D

I've had them for a while now, and wanted to try
something simple. I practiced drawing the four main
ninja from NinjaGo in different colouring styles. Here
is the Copic version; Jay.

I've finally got that look I was trying to get
with shadows and such for a while now! :lol:
Yeah, it only took me five months, and many
attempts to finally realize that I can layer the
markers like crazy! :cry:

Other than the dark eyebrows and eye,
I actually like the light effect I recreated
with this. I was trying to get this effect
for a long time! So please; tell me what
you think! Is there anything that I need
to improve here?

Enjoy~ :meow:

Here's Zane and Cole;

And here's Kai (for now);

Beautiful is word that I would describe this. The shading, the technique, the vision you were going for. It's beautiful.

I might be nitpicking here, though, about the background. Sorry! I know you worked hard on this sketch card. But it would be nice to see a little detailed background here.

Other than that, it's absolutely gorgeous. I see the expression fits Jay so clearly.

....*flips a table* Why can't I do something like this?!

Oh well, I'll get there. Keep it up as you have a fine eye for drawing and for shading.

Have a nice day!- Ayuki~

Yup. Though it seems to be a more orangey-brown at times. ;)
