⚜ DeeDee's Arts 'n stuff ⚜

Hello everyone! Welcome home!
After a year of roaming, it feels really good to see that people have not forgotten about the City and their heroes (and villains) in it. Now we can get together again and pick up where we left things!

As I like drawing I figured I'd set up my own Art Topic aswell.
I am very pleased to see there's a place for it on the forums! The new 606! (that used to be part of the url ;))

So if you have questions, suggestions or whatever... don't be afraid to contact me through here, DA or through my website. I won't bite, I promise.

Here are a 4 of my favourite CoH drawings I did sofar.

Christopher Robin's Xllusya - did this as an art trade with him and it was totally awesome!

One of my main characters Darth Delicious aka DeeDee:

My other main character Mysterious Mike and his half-brother Lucky Liam in their non-hero outfits:

and last but not least, Gambit-X, a prize winner in the CoH CoXso event, hosted by Christopher Robin just before the end of the old City:

Till next time!

This afternoon I oblighed

This afternoon I oblighed myself to do a request from the Art Request Thread, but before I start doing that I should finish one I've had for a loooong time.
Wolfram's Wavekite, a full body colored digital drawing. Had the drawing and flats all done, but it still needs shading 'n stuff, so started that today. So here's a preview of that.

I do have some con/crit for you but I'll leave that for the next time we are on Skype.

Sidenote: I bet all the extra influ Serge gouged her for the
fireproof wing coating seems like a worthwhile investment now. ;-)

Either widen the waist and

Either widen the waist and let the oblique be the same width as the hips OR shave it down in a straight line from the oblique to just about the tip of the 3rd blue star... also straighten the sides of the belt, instead of the inward tilt they are now.

Yeah, sorry about that, Perry

Yeah, sorry about that, Perry has a case of 'Tanker Torso', where everything between his navel and his neck is a bit outsized. It throws off the usual proportions between shoulders, waist, and hips. If you frame him up like a relatively normal person, then widen the bone-structure of the shoulders and pack on a couple layers of beef, you'll get a similar effect.

Be Well!

I was actually planning on making this a quicky (as far as my quickness goes, that is). You know, finish this within 24 hours (may be spread over several days), but this is turning out to be more than that. *shrugs* I got to care about Perry's appearance... darn his charm!
So, more previews!
(The next time I'll post images in this thread will be of the finished piece .)

Yeah, those hips indeed look much better now hehehe. Poor Perry, must have hurt when I worked on him! .

The hair, that was a happy accident truth be told! I spotted a friend on one of the pictures I have standing here and thought...'well hey! He has the hairdue I'm looking for!', so made him my reference. SSsshhh, he doesn't know! *giggles*

I agree on the eyes! They are quite piercing and in a lovely shade of green! . No wonder everybody tends to like Perry .

And now... I shall reveal...the finished piece!

A quick sketch of Sauembast...
I now know that having a ref written as a story is not convenient for an artist... . I'd like to have the facts aswell, whithout having to read the story again, cuz that's annoying if you just want to draw. Hair color, skin/fur color, Eye color, clothes and jewelry short description (image even better) etc.
So... learning point here! No stories as a ref, it's too much .

This is what I got from the story... Siwyenbast, correct me if I'm wrong, please
Fur/skin, dusky tan
Black egyptian mau tail
Cloth: white, green and gold
Writs bands: gold
catclaws for nails
No human ears, black egyptian mau ears on head
Golden collar with ankh hangtag
wide golden broadcollar.
Golden earrings
Egyptian Cobrasnakehead sticks out of carnelian sundisk golden circlet?
Eyes: Emerald green
black kohl eye makeup
armbands are "snakey", silver and gold

Very nice... coming along

Very nice... coming along great... I'm curious, do you ever play with the color selection under the command (Control + U, or Apple + U on a Mac), that brings up a 3 slider menu... the top for color sliding, a saturation slider, and a contrast slider. I always play around with this, especially with flesh tones. As sometimes the overly bright saturation of a color pick will be too cartoony. Not that you're having that problem here... just a suggestion, in case you wanted to putter around... :D

Cheers Bobby! Ah, the Hue and Saturation... I actually use Paint Shop Pro 9 as I often get annoyed by the poor CTRL+Z option in Photoshop hehehe.. (that only goes back one move, have to manually undo through the History tab).
I do actually! But usually once I'm done. Unless it can save some bad color decisions . And when I do, I most often switch to Photoshop to tinker with the image. Paint Shop Pro 9 is less equipted for that.

Here's the last update for today (and probably two days as I won't have time to draw tomorrow). Worked on the face a bit more. Preview is on original size:

If you change the undo in Photoshop to 32, you can undo back 32 times, by control +z for the first undo, and then holding the shift, + control +z for the other 31 undos...

I saw that Sau's getting the

I saw that Sau's getting the drawing treatment and smiled, but then saw the direction you were taking with her and panicked. I've got the original reference picture and several supplementaries here so it'll help. I'm sorry that I didn't get on a lot earlier to spot this and save you a lot of time on major redrawing.

The things ya got right are the dusky skin, the nails (those are unpainted though), and most of the major elements. However she is 21 and would still have a softer teen face. Her height in her fuku is 5'7", and that's with the inch that the boots put on her.

The Original is thus: Using this for a baseline, even though my art sucks.

Comparing the 2, I've gotta let you know that the collar and broadcollar are not the same piece. They are 2 seperate pieces. The collar is much like the collars that goths and punks use, save golden and has a 1.5" hangtag/pendant permanently attached to it. The broadcollar looks more like this, save the scarab is the Eye of Ra (which I'll have farther down):

The Cuffs' pattern are very much like the bangle seen here, just replace the red with green: https://museumstore.hmns.org/product.php?PLU=550040

With Black maus, you can't really see their spots/stripes unless they're in a certain light angle. I love em, so here's a obligitory kitty picture:

For the earrings, they're stud-type and look like this mirrored in gold (aka the cats face each other):

The circlet has his type of headdress as a focal point, but of course the outer ring is gold, the sun disk is carnelian, and the cobra head is gold:

Her armbands' Eyes of Heru look very similar to these, save the irises are silver and gold. Also, use the right one to reference the Eye of Ra:

Her stomach is covered with white linen, as it is a one-piece dress. I would say that the beads in her hair are 4 in number, smaller, gold and malachite, and spaced every 2" (if you've ever seen a kid with beads in their hair all around, yeah that), but that's your choice if you want to go and redo that part. Think Cleopatra w/o bangs if ya do.

If you do decide to include her staff (which is her power source btw), the crossbar of the ankh is pretty much this, but bring their tails down the staff's shaft a la medical sign, and no hanging ankh.

The scarab on the above picture is replaced with this guy, which forms the loop of the ankh. Just take out the base, the ankhs, and extend the wings to where they encompass the sun disk with about 3" of clearance from it and about the same amount from touching each other:

I really hope this helps and doesn't leave you more confused. I'm a big ancient egyptophile and I love using their imagery in my characters.

Yep it's an option in the menu. Mine is set to go back 60 stages/steps with repeated Ctrl+Z presses or forward with Ctrl+Y. Or set it to the extra buttons on your mouse (if you have them) to zip quickly through forward/back stepping.

Apparently you can set this

Apparently you can set this to a max of 1,000... I didn't know that...

Click the thumbnail image in the History panel and all the changes will be undone - back to when you have opened your image.

You can increase the number of history states remembered by Photoshop up to 1000. Open Preferences and go to Performance. There you have "History States" field and slider.

Yeah be aware though (for

Yep but be aware though (for those who don't have a super computer) each history state you add uses resources. Each is like a copy of the whole image again minus the last stroke/line/adjustment so if you have hundreds in use it can slow your Photoshop performance. 50 -100 is a good start on a reasonably fast machine and you can adjust up or down as needed/desired. It's also a good idea to periodically save the whole image as a .psd file (Ctrl+Shift+S) as well to preserve all the layers as they are at that point in time and just pop back to the last save if you get too far off the path.

I have broken my need for

I have broken my need for undo, by completely painting over whole sections, if not scrapping upto an hour's work... if I feel the piece is nowhere close to what I had envisioned. But if I am at a crossroads. I will select the whole image, copy merged, and save to a new psd file. I will then paint over that entire flattened piece until I have something closer to what I wanted. I may even do that 3 to 4 times, if at each stage, I am worried about having too many layers, usually somewhere around 15...

Yep yep. That's why mine is

Yep yep. That's why mine is set at 60 even though my machine could take the maximum, it gives me enough freedom to wander a bit and come back but doesn't let me get too dependent on or bogged down in countless backpedaling. At some point it's better just to paint over it anew or in my case revert back to the original pencils I have scanned in.

@ DD, Siwyenbast is coming along nicely. It would've been nice to have something like that Egyptian eye makeup in the CC, perhaps the AB will have it. :)

Siwyenbast: No worries! I

Siwyenbast: No worries! I actually only detailed the face sofar (well and a little of the headthingy, but that's okay, I was just toying with it anyway), so the jewelry are still open for changes . I'll see what I can manage. Thanks for the info!

Yeah, I'm aware it's a setting, but as I have a great computer, not a super computer , the number of undo's are often not enough and it had me having to fix things manually (which took more time) lots of times. Maybe, one day.... if I have Supercomputer I may switch over to Photoshop completely... *dreams*

Thanks CR! Yeah, there actually weren't many makeup options in the Costume Creator. What's AB?

Alright, this is my final

Alright, this is my final draft. I'll be aiming to finish this one up asap now.

Changed the armband design, earrings, broad collar and added linnen to her clothing. Depainted her fingernails and gave the headthingy a new look with a cobrahead (the scribbles may not be letting it look like one atm though , darkened the fur on the tails and ears. I chose not to change the facial features as I spent several hours on that. Will be adding more details on the skin lateron though. You'll see . Also added another ringthingy in the hair. I'll see if I'll add spaces in between or not. I'll figure it out once I start fixing up the hair.
The only question I have is.... Does the broad collar have any other colors than gold?

AB= Avatar Builder is the name that CoT is using for their separate and legally distinct (lol) costume creator.
Not sure if it's a permanent name or if it will be called something else at launch but it's AB for now.

Dee's hand will be "normalized"! You watch and see!! *tries to figure out a way to make that happen and not make it worse*

Letterman didn't make it to the Netherlands.... (I can see why ), so I'm not familiar with that one.

Thanks VDG!

Thanks VDG!

Here's another update... quite a drastic one, really. I desided I wanted to add in my own facial features as this will be a personal painting and I wanted to throw in some familiarities besides the suit and hair of Dee.
Odd to be "working on yourself"! At least I didn't have to instruct the model to make the poses I needed for refs

While I was at it, made some refs for the hand. Hopefully it looks way better now.

Here's another update. Worked on the outfits and been adding and removing a few things.
Added Cycling Warrior's cape and moved the sword as I was not totally agreeing with it.
Ofcourse that changed the reflection in his sunglasses aswell.
Hopefully I'll be able to finish this in time for his birthday
