A benefit of loving to draw: when you don't have cash for presents, you have your mind and your hands! Yesterday was my boyfriend's birthday and since I don't currently have much extra, I decided to draw his favorite character from Guilty Gear, Testament! If you haven't checked it out and like fighting games, give Guilty Gear a go!
Here's the process and end result.
I used colored Col-Erase pencils, sprayed it with workable fixative, then applied inkwashes. Don't grow too attached to that yellow; it was a bit much and changes.
The end result! (and my messy work station)
The final is on 15x20 illustration board, done with Col-Erase pencils, inkwash, and gouache.
