Photoshop CS5.1 Extended; 25hours+/- Illustration, Painting, Airbrushing & Photoshoping. - Special request for someone; wanted me to use Yoko's figurine as reference, the Max Factory PVC figure! It sets her back around USD300 in Ebay, dafuq!!!
- I tried to draw as close to it as possible but it won't be fun to just replicate almost the same thing, so I improvised half way. Credits to the figure maker
- If you didn't notice Boota, I'm sure your eyes are fixated onto a certain pair of something
- For the gun buffs, that's pretty much an M82 Barret 50cal, and made into a "Yoko version".
- In Japanese there is no 'L', so Littner sounds like rhit~tona, hence Ritona surname.
CREDITS: - Hair brushes from para-vine: para-vine.deviantart.com/art/H… - Max Factory 1:6 Yoko Figurine - Abundance of brushes I got from IMAGINEFX September Issue. - M82 Barret Sniper Rifle for reference - My very old skeleton belt buckle (epic!) -Will add more soon...
Let me first say that I have not watched Gurren Lagann (A bizarre friend of mine only made me skeptical to join in watching.) so I can't comment on recognition or the setting. From what I can see here, this young woman is definitely a cartoon character with a comical sense of style. She's wielding this possibly high powered rifle like its more than a weapon of choice, its probably a part of her character.
The way she's been drawn overall is beautiful. Her wild hair and body gesture is hypnotic. In combination with the clothes, rifle, and background, I find myself wondering what she could be possibly doing out there by herself, looking so good, and wandering around with a flying mole rat creature of some kind. I saw this thumbnail and immediately had to take a closer look. The various materials within feel real without breaking at border between realism and art. The altered color at the bottom of this image helps her stand out even more, and gives her a more angelic or divine aura.
As a fan of Eddy Shinjuku's art, this vibrant image is testament to his skill and style. Keep up your great and inspiring work.
Haha yea it happened last month, been pretty hectic but it's slowed down now so I've had more time to message/browse art like your lovely works
I think one of my favourite parts of the piece is how well you did her shorts/leg tights and upper body especially! You really are improving greatly
I would love to cosplay as Yoko but sadly I have no where near the bust size to pull her off as accurately as I want However! I have seen girls with smaller bust size then me pull her off nicely, so she's still on my list! I'll get back to you on that
Lol the curves are exaggerated with fluidity, it's portrays the character's personality in some ways
I think you can pull it off It's depend of how well you utilize 'them' I recommend finding the top that has this 'push-up' effect, and practice the hips to that it literally moves independently on it's own, cheers! XD
GL is one of the most epic animes produced before the economic recession of 2009 where big production anime like GL is at a halt. When I said 'epic' I meant the genre of it is literally about epicness lol
