And the test results are...

Sorry for the stupid title, I couldn't think of a better one. But anyway, here we are, again, this time with Abby in it. It's from the same episode as the previous picture, and, like the previous ones, made with watercolors (background) and Copic markers (characters). The scanner kind of screwed with the colors, especially the lighter watercolors, but oh well. This will have to do. And that machine on the table? No clue as to what it is, but I made it a fancy microscope. I couldn't really tell the details from the printscreen I made, so I improvized. Don't shoot me, lol.

By the way, I don't have the right color markers to do Kate's hair properly, but I have the right colors for Abby's (scary, rubber) gloves... What's up with that?

I made the filmstrip longer, adding my most recent pic. I didn't think it worthy of a whole new post, so I decided to edit this one.

On A Roll!

Lol, I made another NCIS thingy. It's done from a screenshot I made myself from the episode One Shot, One Kill from the first season. I like how it turned out.

The normal version...

And the version with filmstrip, added in Photoshop. Just playing around a bit, lol. I kind of like it.

Illustration course

For those who don't know yet, I'm taking this illustration course (which, sadly, I haven't finished yet, but I'm getting there, lol). For this course I had to do a 'fantasy' assignment, using elements of the human figure. I was supposed to pick a model, but I had done a similar thing in one of my dummies when I was still in art college, so I decided to simply elaborate on that one. I really like the outcome and intend on doing this more often, but with different objects.
Anyway, hope you like it, too!

The line-art version...

...And the colored version!

It's titled fEmail, but don't ask me why. That just came to me when I made it, lol.

Flying Colors

Lol, I actually colored the NCIS scene I posted earlier (here)! Yay! And I'm quite proud of the outcome, I love it! Double yay!
I know Kate's hair isn't right, but I don't have the right colors in my Copic collection yet, so yeah, I made her blond. The characters are colored with Copic markers and the background is done with watercolors.

Doodles and Things

Made some stuff again. Nothing extraordinary or anything, but still fun.

This is Mi, and yes, they're based on Me, go figure...
The colored version is basically wearing my work outfit, except for the high heels, I rarely wear high heels, so especially at work (where I have to stand/walk all the time) I won't wear them. But I thought they were a nice touch. For those who know me in real life, no, I haven't painted my hair purple, but again, it looks cool, lol.

And this is a comic scene I made. It's based on NCIS, but not quite NCIS, though it could've been, I suppose. No existing scene, anyway. They could be Tony and Ziva, but then they don't really look that well... So I'm just telling you that these are (very original) characters I came up with myself and put them in a (very original) scene I came up with as well... And you'll just have to believe me, ha!
Please note the (very) sarcastic undertone...

It was cool to make, though.

NCIS again!

Well, drew part of this from a picture, which can be found here and made part of it up myself. I enjoyed doing this. Adding details and stuff. It's fun. Plus, since I didn't recognize the original scene, I made my own story to go with it.

What happened here? He was obviously hit on the head with the blunt object on the table, but what else? Why is he clutching his chest? If it would've been a heart attack of some kind, and he would've been hit post-mortum, there wouldn't be any blood, or not as much anyway. Was he having pain first and hit later? Was he dead immediately after the hit? What's the paper slip Gibbs is holding? Who is the guy standing in the front? So much fun! Lol, I actually pay attention when watching the series.

August and Dried Rose

Finally! Some time to update some more. I see I've only updated twice in July, that's terrible! I hope August will make up for that, but I can't be sure. Still have an translation going on, of which the dead-line is August 12th, and then there's my part-time/student job. And since it's the holidays they like to plan me into the roster without consulting me much, so yeah. Hey, I'm not complaining, more work is always good, considering, but still, it's a lot of work, you know? (Wow, how many commas can one use in one sentence? Lol. If I did this in a translation I'd get my butt kicked... Seriously. But then again, this is so lovely unofficial. I love being unofficial, especially after having done so many things official lately.)

Anyhow, below here is ... well, it's supposed to be Gibbs, from NCIS. But he doesn't really look like it. I still like the character itself though, so I thought I'd post it anyway. Plus I like the line-art. I drew that gun from a photo on the cover of a encyclopedia I bought (you get it?). Yes, I bought an encyclopedia about guns... How bad is that. I like them, though. Not to kill, mind you, but they're interesting ... objects.

From left to right: Gibbs, Todd, and DiNozzo. Or, in other words, Jethro, Kate, and Tony. Drew this one from a (well-known) picture on one of the DVDs. So it's not really original, but I like how the line-art turned out. Kind of comic-y.

And last but not least; a rose! It's a dried rose, mind you, so it wasn't my fault. I drew it from a real-life dried rose I kept from a bouquet. Done with my wonderful new Prismas! Still love 'em! And they work fantastically!
