The Trickster by Law-of-Murph The Trickster by Law-of-Murph
Yes, Loki.
I know I draw him a lot. So what? I do what I want!
And my scanner seems to have eaten this picture, partially digested it and vomited it back up.

Lighting is soooo A+ 

and I love that its old school and his hand is all bent up, those liiiiips <3

I am curious, what media is this done in?

Thank you! <3 That lighting was super fun to do. :D

It's done mostly in pencil.
I drew the original in graphite (and some ink) fav.me/d52t471 then I scanned it, tinted it digitally, and printed it out on watercolour paper. Then, I coloured/shaded over it with coloured pencils, a bit of Copic, and some gouache. Then I touched some bits up digitally because the scanner killed it. xD

I've been doing so much digital recently though, I've really been missing traditional art. :/

Wow that seems like a lot of work but it paid off, beautiful piece ^_^ 

I love that the gritty Traditional art is there and the crisp colors are great together. 

Scanners are horrible D: (murderers I say!) 

Very creative process, thank you for sharing, ^_^ 

I understand the whole look back at traditional art, I find myself frustrated, astonished and bemused by Digital art all at once sometimes, Traditional art can be so familiar and wonderful <3

May I ask how long it took?

Yeah, but I love it so it's didn't seem like much work at all. xD
I actually came across the printing out on new paper tecnique in an artbook, forget which one. xD  But it's what worked best for me, so I stuck with it.^^
aaaand.....I think it took somewhere around 4 - 5 hours? Not sure, All I remember was it was one sitting. xD  Hahah I generally get pretty lost in my art when I draw something more than a sketch, so I'm not entirely sure of the time.

I have the same problem with getting lost in art-land sometimes I spend days in there and dont come out until I'm finished o.0 
I imagine the really bad movie 'click' when I get lost I'm just a mindless zombie until I return to the real world XD All sense of time just vanishes. 

Its a cool way to do it, 
I suppose the watercolor paper is so the printer ink wont smudge or bleed when you copic over it? Or do you just like the texture of the paper?

It makes for color either way, Brilliant. ^_^

Law-of-Murph Featured By Owner May 7, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
Hahah, yeah. xD

And yes, it's for both, I guess. It prevents bleeding, smudging, and warping. I do like the texture, though I use coldpress, so it's smoother than some. But, it's mostly for the warping. Because ink, copic, and even coloured pencil tend to warp paper, or worse, rip through it with a lot of use. :/ (And, with my luck, it rips right on an important part of the face or hands. orz)  I aslo like how thick it is, doesn't flop around. xD It feels much more 'finished' when you're done.

Thanks. :)

Very interesting. 

I really liked the texture but it makes sense for the other reasons too. 

(Loki is beautiful <3) 

Again, thanks for sharing, its cool your so open and willing to indulge my silly questions <3

Thank you! And I draw the picture in normal graphite pencil, scan it in and print it out on watercoulour paper, (so it won't smudge when I colour) then colour it with pencils, mostly. (normal, watercolour, and pastel) And the odd markers, too.
