Haha, these are all so great.

The Binaca movie poster is by my favorite thing you've done so far, the shading and colors on that are so perfect.

=)

 

It's awesome to see fully original artwork in contests.

What program do you use? Do you use a tablet?

Thanks, Star.

 

Don't I wish I had a tablet! Ten years ago, on oekaki boards, I saw what people could create with them in minutes, when I had to spend an hour for a done-with-mouse pic...

 

Those ones are done on paper. Regular-ballpen-inked. Then scanned and colored on GIMP.

 

Coloring still takes a lot of time because I do it with the mouse, too. I'm too old-fashioned to trust auto-selection and filling for the most part.

 

The shading is done on a separate layer. Before, I would get the shade color myself. Now, I just use black and white in the shading layer and set the layer mode so it alters the colors in the layers below.

 

Creating original artwork serves two purposes. Once the contest is done, they go directly to my gallery.

It was that and no-shading if I wanted to be on time.

 

Thanks, man.

I really like the Gleeba pics.

I would watch that if it was a tv show.:D

Are all of these yours, Cesar? I think I've seen them in your DeviantART gallery.

Yup.

 

The ones in this topic are pics I created for past contests (the ones King Zenith organizes).

 

The last two are from the "Lost" poster I did not have time to finish... I am now coloring the characters and uploading them separately.

I thought the Gleeba one´s were hilarious. I especially like the gold plated golem. Great side quest. xD

I wish I could upload some of my work here, but im lousy with scanners, and computer painting/coloring. :(

More pictures from the DQ invades the TV contest.

Haigona.

This is not "really" Haigona (or Dr. Lump, as you may know him). This is really Brass from Dai no Daibôken, portraying Haigona. That is why there is a band-aid where Brass's tail was cut off, and the yellow paint reveals Brass's true color(s) below.

Leveraux/Ruborô.

The geeky archeologist. That back pack of his sure looks heavy for such a skinny boy, doesn't it?
