Sailor Specials: Work in Progress

Today i have some WIPs of the Sailor Specials for you. I'm working on the Sailor Specials parrallel to the regular Sailor Moon Fanarts. They are a bit different in the concept. For example there could be shown more than one character on the picture or some additional background etc. I hope you like the both ;) Have funnnnn, Nashi XD

Cya, Nashi *_*

Venus eye tutorial

Hi friends ^^

As promised welcome to my Sailor Venus eye tutorial.
I was bathing in work on the halloween  time so 
it got a bit late for the eye tutorial hope you
forgive me :___:'

For the concept of big shapes with a medium detail
level the eyes are also settled in that range to blend in
well with the overall look of the composition.

For good contrast i prepared thick lines with my Rohrer & Klingner 
colored Ink (turquoise) like you can see above. I spare out the inside
of the eyelid for further coloration while inking and  also the pupil.
See how i play with the thickness of the lines. It's getting thicker and 
darker where the lines come together. That provides a deeper illusion
of the eye itself so give it a try on your own projects. It's fun XD

For the first layer of the coloration i descided on a bright blue of my PH.
Martins and mixed them with water to get a very soft and light ground.
i add more color at the top of the eye to create smooth gradient here.
for the next layers the color stays the same.

 by taking less water on the brush the color gets stronger bit 
by bit and i can easily put layer over layer to work out the 
desired contrast.

When done i catch one of my Farbercastell colored Pencils 
with a darker value of the blue i used here and add even 
more depth under the eyelid area, the pupil and the iris.
Last but not least i add some additional highlights to suit the 
shojo and magical girl theme of the Sailor Moon Series ;)

If you have a airbrush you can easily make your own little
shoujo effect. just draw a star on a piece of paper and cut out 
the inside. Then place it over the big highlight of the eye 
and fix it with your hand while spraying the white color 
on it.  And voila the eyes are finished ^___^

WIP of Sailor Soldier und my Dr. Ph. Martin's watercolors

Here you can see the teaser of my next Sailor Soldier from Sailor Moon.
And i also added a photo of my *Dr. Ph. Martin's concentrated watercolors*
collection wich i use very often for getting bright and shiny colors for my
illustrations. ^___^
Perhaps you know which one of the Sailor Soldiers this is.  XD
For the outlines, i used Rohrer & Klingner colored ink.
Tomorrow i'll start with the coloring and will make some shots
for you as well.
