The Man in Green by TheBourgyman The Man in Green by TheBourgyman
Hey, it's freaking Luigi! Who doesn't love him, for God's sake? He's got everything : the high jump, the leanness, and the ability to cross-dress faster than the speed of light. What a man, really! And he even got his own non-official girlfriend, Princess Daisy. Fancomics about this couple are fun to read : those two characters are so different from each other, yet their relation makes some sense. =P

But enough fanboy talk... This multi-drawing piece was done as a practise (explanation below) and contains artwork that were requested by people like ~tythetasmaniantiger1 (can you actually believe I haven't forgotten you?) and *nintendrawer. It just made sense to me that all those drawings HAD to be united in one, whatcha think? And anyway, I've submitted a hell lot of Mario pics lately, so what's the need of flooding my gallery with smalls pics that all have the same subject, in the end? Meh.

Anyway... LOOK, it's traditional artwork! Yes, what you see here is my first SERIOUS attempt at colouring using Copic Sketch markers. ANY artist who's serious about colouring the traditional way should try these at least once. They work like a charm, and they come in a whole variety of colours. The only drawback of these : they cost a fortune. Expect to pay maximum $8 per marker if you wanna get yourself some. A set of 72 costs at least $400 (I've got 41 markers so far).

I edited some parts of the drawing in Photoshop, mostly for cleaning bleeds and stains obtained from leaky markers. So it still remains 99,9% traditional. Except for the frame, of course. Man, I need to learn how to use my blender properly, some blends are really awkward in here.

I'm wondering if I should put stronger watermarks on my pictures? I haven't suffered from SERIOUS art thievery yet, but I'm wondering if it's all necessary for smaller, fanart pictures like that? I mean, art theives always get caught up, after all... or do they? Anyway, suggestions, anyone?

All the characters here belong to Nintendo!
