Colours 2 by nuu Colours 2 by nuu
[eta: ]
part one | part two | part three | part four




Next 2 spreads.
The brushes are almost entirely from ~concept-on-mac
Aside from a few default photoshop brushes.

Drawing this comic made me really fast at speedpainting forests.
I wouldn't really say good though.

The fairy's name is "Colours", hence the name. She was originally nekkid, but because (even though we always have life drawing) I didn't really feel comfortable projecting almost 16 pages of nekkid fairy in front of the class, I gave her a green dress.

It was a lot harder to portray emotion without any facial expressions, so everything had to be done through body language, and yet sometimes the wrong emotion is portrayed. In any case, none of the characters in the whole story really has many facial expressions. Colours is wearing a mask, Filit's wearing goggles and has a scarf that covers his face, and Sober (the most expressive one, it seems) is a cat.

Shite that is some really cool fast-painted forest. It feels so lush and atmospheric...!
Good work! I'm really curious to see how a faceless-comic expresses itself.

Well, actually that's pretty much it. I guess I have like 2 more pages of randomness.

It doesn't have text on it on DA... does it have text on it in real life? Is it really compelling or should I be contented with just the pictures? D: :threaten: elaborate.

It DOES have text in real life. I printed a few copies as self-promo a few months ago when I went down to Seattle for a convention. Got plenty of business cards too, but no actual business. I still have a few copies lying around, I can mail you one if you want.

D: could you? that would so rock... I'm trying to figure out a way to pin your picture onto the concrete wall, btw. Very proud of owning a painting! Now that I'm back in my room in my house... I'll find a way eventually. Anyway, please oblige!

Ah, gasmasks. It's interesting to use them...
Nice image of the frail fairy with the mask... It gives a wonderful contrast - has a sort of beauty you can't find anywhere.
Really pretty <3

But a tutorial... I didn't really follow a very good method. >__O I just kinda drew it as I went along.

Wow, this is just... amazing, Nuu *____* Really really love the earthy tones (as well as those putrid purples <4). A few of these panels come off as able to be a stand alone image-- particularly the establishing shot. Really love that one and it makes me think of an illustration I'd see in a book-- but it's not detracting, oh nooo. Really interesting color style, as well. Kinda shallow and dreamlike. And man your paneling and layouts are just boss.

You're just stepping up liek whoa and I can only sit and be awestruck wuht

Hahaha, yeah, these are the characters I draw whenever I have to do a school project. I did something else about them too (for another project) so maybe I'll put it up later.

And there it is, the perfect reason behind my need/want for a gas mask. They are just so beautiful.

You.. you did a good job. *teardrop*

I don't have the one she's wearing though... it's a little different.
I got mine off ebay, and when it arrived at my house my parents freaked the hell out. xD

Yeah, when i asked mine if i could get one she gave me this... 'look.'
And i tried to play off an innocent stare, buuuuuut i dunno.

I guess ima have to save up enough to buy on off ebay.

Not much at all, actually. Around... 25? It also came with a nifty bag.
I kinda got mine without asking, so it just showed up one day. xD
