Ignition by FugueState Ignition by FugueState
(FULL VIEW RECOMMENDED)

For the story "Ignition" by Blythechild.

V pulled a small detonator from inside his cloak and stood ramrod straight as he looked down over London. The wind was strong at this elevation, but he did not move, only his cloak flapped ominously. He turned back to face her and tilted his head slightly so that it lit from the lights below ghoulishly. He stretched out his hand to her.

"Are you ready, Evey?"


[This one seriously kicked my butt... but in a good way! ;P I started by shading V's figure in ballpoint pen. That and the outlines of the buildings are the only things I did by hand. Everything else I did in Photoshop, partially because I wanted to learn how to do more in that program, and partially because I knew shading everything by hand would kill me. :faint: I'm very happy with the result (although I don't foresee many more projects as complex as this one!)]

To tell the truth I liked the rough version better, thouth the picture won on the athmosphere. the rough lines expressing light were a bit bold.

I really love how oyu play with light sources...amazing.

I agree with you in regards to the rough lines - there's definitely more "action" in the rough sketch. ^^; I'm still learning how to manipulate Photoshop, and I'm still very much at its mercy! ;) Also, in the rough version I did the building shading by hand, and in the final version I used a Photoshop filter rather than go through all of that hatching again. :faint: I am glad you liked the lighting; V is a lot of fun for that! :D

Old school!! That is simply awesome. The flaring cape, the extended hand, makes me feel like I'm there (and wish I was too).
