Evey Hammond by blackparademajorette
Evey Hammond
Rereading V for Vendetta and I wanted to draw Evey. She gets so much pain, and honestly for so little. I guess she's waiting for V to get back and really starting to process what almost happened to her; maybe scolding herself for ever thinking prostitution was a good idea. I was trying make her look somewhere between frightened, sad, and numb. Also, heavy makeup is so fun to draw with pencil.

Guess who stayed up til 4 am to read the entirety of V for Vendetta?  Yeah, me.  It was on sale at the google play store for $2.99. And I was like, how could anyone pass this up?  I had absolutely no exposure to the franchise save a few screen caps of Natalie Portman as Evey and "remember, remember, the fifth of November."  I did read Watchmen, however, and loved every inch of it.  The storytelling was so rich, like something out of an opera, but so frank and gritty, like an investigation news story.  There are some comics that are technically graphic novels and then there are comics like Watchmen, that deserve to be knighted as pure graphic novels in every sense of the term.  I felt the exact same way about V for Vendetta.  A pure graphic novel balancing epic storytelling with real world grit.  It did not disappoint.  10/10 would recommend to anyone with even the slightest interest in stories about a third World War or masked anarchist vigilantes

WIP Sansa Stark in 1830s fashion by blackparademajorette
WIP Sansa Stark in 1830s fashion
Or, alternatively, shading is a bitch.

I don't know what it is about 1830s fashion that reminds me of Sansa. Something about the conical skirts, the fichus, gigot sleeves, and those spaniel curls just screams idealistic ingenue.

And I Wont Let Anyone Hurt You by blackparademajorette
And I Wont Let Anyone Hurt You
The edited-by-Gimp version of this piece: <da:thumb id="480964510">

I liked how Karkat turned out in the first version, but I thought Kanaya needed some work, so Karkat is minimally edited, and Kanaya extensively so.  I wanted there to be a stark difference between them.  If you've ever dealt with depression then you understand that when your self-confidence plummets, so might the effort you put into maintaining yourself.  I tried to make it look like he was less affected by light and shadow than Kanaya because it just doesn't matter to him.

what I did for Karkat:
fixed his eyebrow
darkened his sweater
brightened his horn a little and gave it a little reflected light
fixed his eyes

What I did for Kanaya
brightened her dress
defined the sleeves
smoothed out her skin
smoothed out her hair
defined the part in her hair
made her dress/sash/shoe shimmery
brightened he shoe
fixed her eyes
fixed her eye shadow
gave her dark circles around her eyes
colored her sash red
brightened her horns and made them look super shiny

those last two actually have to do with some headcanons of mine.  I always thought that Kanaya would make a point to wear bright red around Karkat so she could wipe his tears or bandage a wound without him worrying about the others finding out his blood color.  I also thought Kanaya would polish her horns daily as some shave their legs every day.

I was also trying to create a sense of motherliness.  Karkat's in the fetal position and Kanaya has a protective hand on his neck.

haven't started yet, actually.  missed a lot of school.  But don't worry, I got a ton of credible sources, it's just a matter of doing the actual physical drawing.  Are you planning another maker meanwhile? Your harpies are awesome.

Okay, just checking. :)
And yes, at the moment I'm making a Royal Portrait Maker. It's the first near-photorealistic dressup game I've ever made.
