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.

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. ;)

Nice job! :D

The highlights in his hair look good,
and his facial expression suits him.

But how did you color him without lineart? :O_o:

skcolb Featured By Owner Jan 25, 2013  Student Filmographer
Thanks! :hug:

He was surprisingly the quickest to make;
and this colouring was completely accidental.
When trying to add blue shadows, I've used
a blue that was too dark. So I layered a bunch
of markers to blend that. ^^;

There was some light pencil lines that I
kneaded off, then I guess the many layers
of marker washed the excess off. Though I
wish that I didn't use the black fineliner. It
completely subrtacts from the soft lighting.

I've never thought of using
blue shadows before. ^^;
But don't worry, it looks great!

The lack of lineart makes it seem
more professional in a way. :)

I was staring at my arm for a while, wondering
what hidden colours are in there, then I noticed
that my shadow had a slightly bluish-tone to it.
I've also found some green, yellow, purple, and
orange. :meow:


That's what I was trying to aim for (but
then I messed up on the eyes/brows). ^^;

Oh that's cool!
Great, now I'm going to be staring
at everything trying to see how many hidden colors there are. :XD:


I think the line art brings out his eye more.
It maintains his cartoon-y...ness. ^^;
