READ THE DESCRIPTION!

For :icondrawanime: 's contest!!
The theme for the contest is "Icon and Palette Maskot". We are looking for a nice colour scheme of the winning pieces to be intergraded into a new journal skin for the group, as well as a stunning image of our mascots to be used for our group icon.
Here their reference: [link] & [link]

My palette is about bright and primary colors! :D
In Art class at high school I learnt that bright colors are very attractive and give energy to a drawing.
Like yellow and orange are for happiness and joyful subjects, energy ful and also for brightness.
Red gives power or for something warm.
Electric blue for speed, while a deep blue is for dreams, kindness and peace.
White is for pure thing, innocence, and spiritual links between people.
Green gives something relaxing, and natural.
Pink, purple and magenta are fore melancolic or pride stuff and mystreries...
There are the colors I use to represent those two characters, how I see them.
I first thought the girl's color theme were too pale or only between orange-red and blue-green, while the guy's color were most of brown.
It's why I chose those colors, to contrast with theirs and complete the loop... ;)

I chose to draw them with pose like they were dancing.
All the spots and "waves" around the characters are there to give movement.
For something energetic and... living! :D
And, I don't know if you see it, but the girl is holding a pot of paint, in her right hand, where there's a paint explosion! The paint splashes are going all over the paper, dancing, running, etc.
Then the girl is writing "Draw Anime" with her left hand, for he name of her club! ;)
And for the guy, in his left, it's a pen tablet! :p (and the pen is his right)
Btw I did'nt know if they were lefty or righty... :P

***

Then for the tools,
I'm sorry for the proportions and stuffs like that... I lack of pratice... and it's been such a while since I didn't draw lots and lots of things (characters, human, animals, etc.)
And I've FAILED on the girl's hair... (it should be brighter, more like electric blue)
I first used a brown colored pencils for the lines, to colors on and then I used a purple pen to finish it.
I used copic sketch markers for the characters and a part of the background (I'm still not used to those markers... I only get them last week)
For the background, I used acrylics with water (a paint brush and also a teeth brush :rofl: )
Then I used a white corrector (it's like white paint but dry faster) and a white gel pen for the... white stuff and lines %D
SO... 100% traditionnal!

***

This is how I draw anime (even tought I try to get my own style)!
There are lots of lines and scratch... %D
(that's one of my "brand", how you can reconize my style haha)
There are white correctoir, I love to use it, I use it everywhere!
My anime is style is'nt "moe" as you can (I'm not good at drawing moe, or just chibis)...
Thought I'm still pratice to improve my style...
Enjoy!

***

Hope you like it!

This is a beautiful picture. While the anatomy is a bit off, it enhances the girl instead of taking away. Her shoes are awesome, and the only thing wrong with her is her face. Her nose is a bit colorful and she looks like she's in allergy season. The object she's holding in her hand is covered by the white-Is that incidental, or was it a mistake? The guy I think looks as perfect as he can be in this situation though. Especially holding the tablet...

Thanks you very much C:

For the anatomy, I know I'm very bad at it...
But well, keep practice!

Then for her right hand, I decided to made in white because black white weren't contrasting enough.

Merci C:
En fait, pour les couleurs, j'ai fais les personnages avec des markers et des crayons de couleurs et ensuite, j'ai pris une brosse à dent et de l'acrylique (pour les éclaboussures et tout le reste qui entoure les personnages) et pour les traits blanc, c'est du blanco. C:

J'ai du mettre environ 1h ou 2h pour les personnages et moins d'une heure pour le "fond".
