It's a do-over of my first posted Ninjago fanart [seen here]!
It's been a while since then, and I've changed in many ways. This is to show where I stand today, and how my art has improved over the years. Both versions were executed in the same way; fine-liners for the lineart, scanned into the computer, coloured with a computer mouse (no tablet), and I tried to use the same amount of effects/filters. The only difference is that I made the bacground myself this time round (the original was from the internet... Never doing that again!)
I hope you guys enjoy this, and happy 2014!
Man, I remember going all "Whooooooah" when I first saw that Zane pic.
You've improved greatly over the years.
The way he's posing is also a lot more natural.
(And that text is just awesome- Is it an existing font, or did you make it?)
Yeah, I could see him taking it more seriously than the others at times (especially in the beginning of the series).
He definitely would be serious about defending his friends/others in need! That's alright, Pixal's pretty cool!
Yep, I initally liked him because I thought Zane had a mental disorder (turns out he didn't, but he's still a great character)!
I think I'm starting to get the hang of forshortening now... But it sure too a while!
Dont get an idea that i have a weird fetish or something
I swear its just cause imma fan of ur work, since before i joined.
Ur one of the people i think has the best ninjago art! I aint lying
Even though I wouldn't draw by this method today; it doesn't look right, and there are too many flaws in it. It worked for me then, but I've found better ways to do so...
It was the kind of style I was going for all these years (but it looks less cool on my first attempts). XD
Haha, that's alright... The original background was hastily chosen and filtered, so I wanted to show how I'd currently rush through one today. But yeah, it does look a little too rushed.
