Bittersweet Kryptonite by Toto-the-cat Bittersweet Kryptonite by Toto-the-cat
I was sketching for commissions yesterday and went wild with poses and such. I liked this pose a lot and thought it would fit to my Sailor Krypton, who really has a place in my heart by the way, and so spontaneously decided to complete the drawing. At first, I was like "aww, I want to practice lining", after having lined, I was like "aaaw, I should also exercice drawing shades and light sources" and so on. In the end, I worked on this drawing in breaks from other things, haha. I had started it yesterday during watching the first two Dark Knight movies again. Maybe this is why the motive is a bit 'sad'. :B Plus, tomorrow I have to start something that I don't want and that other people force me to do. Not looking forward to that!

So.. Ya. 'Bittersweet Kryptonite'. It was also bittersweet to use markers on the Sketchbook paper which is absolutely not made for the ink. :XD:




Time: ~don't know
Materials: Markers, White gel pen.

That's a really cool, nifty concept. Your line work is clean and sharp, your coloring very vibrant and eye catching, as well as the amount of emotion that you put into the piece overall. I'm horrible with markers so this is really impressive in terms of skill. I can see why you'd have a hard time with sketchbook paper....most paper from sketchbooks are coated with a special chemical that doesn't properly allow ink to be absorbed correctly. But at the same time....they're coated that way so the oil from our skin doesn't become absorbed into the paper either.

Still, your drawing looks lovely anyways! :3

OMG thank you so much for this constructive and long feedback! *^* I appreciate every single word a lot! Thank you very very much! *is touched* *///* 

And yes, sketchbook paper is super thick and rough and has a textured surface.. So, for very liquid markers, it's very hard, because it takes a lot of the ink.

Aww, wow, thank you so much! That means so much to me. *o* I created her as persona fan OC as crossover between Sailor Moon and Superman/ DCU. So, I didn't work much on stories or something yet. But  it makes me so happy that people seem to like her... >///< :blushes: Thx so mch! :hug:
