Up in the Sky by wayah Up in the Sky by wayah
I started this when I was visiting *fetalstar and just finished this morning.. lol. I was working on commissions in between though so I'll use that as an excuse.

For those of you that might not know [if that is even possible], it's the lovely Ms. Yoko. The BG probably makes no sense.. but I was going for the exhaust from one of the mecha things. I can't even remember what they're called :[ I fail at backgrounds (and titles).

Inked with Copic Multiliners, colored in Painter 9 and PS CS3.

Yoko © GAINAX
Print will be at AWA ; D

This is a really great picture! I especially love the colors used and details. And also that you didn't go overboard with her chest like I've seen in other fan-art drawings of her. Great job!

Fantastically dynamic pose, and I actually thought immediately of the mecha exhausts when I saw this, or atleast something from a jet engine. The stream gives it even more action and movement, so shush your face, I think it's a very fitting background!

Loving the hair, and the twisting anatomy. It's got so much BOOM to it, this picture :3!

Haha I'm glad! I was just going to do a plain color bg like always but I thought this one called for something different.

I think the hair is my favorite part :>

I love the movement in this. And I adore that you've hidden so much of her face. That's such a rare move to make. :)

I like everything about this piece besides her boots...lol you did a wonderful job
Reply
:iconwayah:
wayah Featured By Owner Jul 16, 2008
The way I drew them or just the boot in general? I've never been fond of her boots myself but they are apart of her design so what can ya do XD

Thanks :>!

I just think the boot doesn't go with the outfit but you are right with that one. It's still a great piece though. I wish i could do that one but I can't :P
