pencils = Stanley Lau (*the* Artgerm!!)

About a week and a half ago I was on artgerm's chat forum on D/Art and Stan and I got to talking about doing a common picture together and to compare notes as it were. Stan said he'd send me some lineart when he's got one that he thinks would be good for the two of us...

Then 2 nights ago, I'm on the chat again and casually remark how I liked the Emma Frost in his gallery. Next thing I know Stan's sent me the high res file and said in front of everybody else on the chat forum that he looks forward to seeing what I can do. Stan has been slightly critical of my choice of lineart and he reckons that I do too many Dave Finch pieces which are too easy because of all of DF's dark shadows and light direction hints (he'd be right too... they are easy because of that...!)

Phew.. !!!. A couple of dozen people seeing me 'get called' by Artgerm himself and given lineart to show my worth!! - Ack!! No pressure, no pressure.... No...! *gets nervous shakes and rocks back and forth quietly in the corner* :)

So I get it flatted nice and quickly and then set about to do the colours. At first I was trying to emmulate (ok...copy...) what Stan had done on his, but after only 15 minutes of that I came to the realisation "I have no idea what I'm doing or how he does this!!!" so I ditched all that I'd done and reverted to my own style of things but giving it my best shot possible.

So... here it is... for better or worse.

I'm so glad to read you don't have a huge ego like some artists... I have learned to comment what is on my mind and move on, if the artist can use my critique and can better themselves then it puts a smile on my face... I would of loved to have seen His (the artist you got the image from) and your image that you started and then this final image side by side. ... I like this soft image you did and yes, it is your style - HOWEVER - when I think of your style, I think of art similar to your avatar - I think when you have the time, you should go back to this image and do one in your avatar style. Post the two side by side - if nothing, it would be a great additive to your portfolio.

I looked at the original and yours. I think both are exceptional, they just have different 'feels'. Keep going, don't ever stop, practice until you go cross-eyed at the PC. It's all worth it! I like what you have done here.
