Tesshin by Y-Esk Tesshin by Y-Esk
Or 'Chibi' ;)

My first try at a realistic portrait of a Ginga Densetsu Weed character- also, one of my favourites.

wow this is so cool ^^ what did you use to color it?
Reply
:icony-esk:
Y-Esk Featured By Owner Jul 25, 2009  Professional
Thanks :) I used watered down acrylics for the base colours and coloured pencils for the fur.

:iconxxxemowolfakiraxxx:
xXxemowolfakiraxXx Featured By Owner Jul 27, 2009  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
what exactly are base colours? and how do you use them?
Reply
:icony-esk:
Y-Esk Featured By Owner Jul 30, 2009  Professional
Base colours are just the general flat colours of the character you lay down first. By laying down the base colours first you eliminate all the white paper specks that would show through if you just went straight into doing the fur detail ;)

thnx ...but how exactly did you learn to color like that? and which type of colored pencils did you use?
Reply
:icony-esk:
Y-Esk Featured By Owner Aug 3, 2009  Professional
You;re welcome. I learnt mostly just from practice and trying out different techniques with pencils. I use 'Derwent artist' coloured pencils ;)

How long does it take for you to draw? just curious :)

Y-Esk Featured By Owner Jun 28, 2009  Professional
Hard to say as I haven't actually sat down and timed how long I take. This portrait took me around 5 hours to colour, however, I seem to be taking longer recently. Maybe because I'm drawing them a bit bigger now. :?

Y-Esk Featured By Owner May 12, 2009  Professional
Yep, that's him ;) His name was simply Chibi back in GNG. It gt changed (or upgraded =P) to Tesshin in GDW. His design also changed a fair bit.

Yes, for the most part.
It is coloured pencils and watercolour :)

You're welcome. Watercolor too? Amazing.
Reply
:icony-esk:
Y-Esk Featured By Owner Apr 5, 2009  Professional
Yep. I use watercolour for the base colours as it helps get rid of all those white specks of paper that usually show through with coloured pencils :)

saves time too :D

Hm... I never thought of that. No wonder it looks so awesome! :) I'll have to try that sometime. Do you use watercolor paints or watercolor pencils?
