The Royal Museum by DarkRapier The Royal Museum by DarkRapier
I finally got off my lazy ass. This is yet another Marleybone drawing. I have an unhealthy obsession with that place.

Done using Paint Tool SAI. I originally drew this piece in order to make a tutorial, but Hypercam died while I was recording the coloring process. Here is a video of the line art process for those who fancy suffering though a 20 minute video: [link]

Windows Movie Maker decided to compress the video vertically for some reason.

This is by far, the fastest I have drawn a picture. One hour for line art. Four hours for the coloring. I think my speed is improving. Still slow, but I am getting faster.

This is one of the few times that I have been satisfied about a drawing.

On a side note, I finally got PvP Warlord on my Magus myth. I can say that I am elated.

I put this under the "Manga and Anime" category, but I am unsure if my drawing style is still considered anime. I think it is, but I have a handful of people who differ.

Very. I drew pretty slowly in digital art back then. My speed has since improved.

Thanks.

It simply takes a long time since anatomy is the bane of my existence. Ironically drawing is my source of stress relief.

Sir, I will be RIGHT THERE with you.
You into steampunk at all?
You probably could be, if you're into Marleybone so much lol

YUSH!
I gave a speech about it for my Public Speaking class this summer and last semester I wrote a paper on it for English!
I"m no expert, but I'm happy to say that I know a fair amount about it and am currently working on my OC steampunk costume ^^

Wow, amazing!! The coloring in this is so intense! The red's and blues! Damn. In a weird way, I see the character almost saying. "Are you ready for a show?" .. Some kind of challenge, maybe? XD
And your style of artwork in this is closely along a "boy's action manga/anime" .. whereas the style is more realistic, but still a cartoon. It's not meant to be all Shoujo. So, yes, in short, that's the right category. Great job as always!

I don't blame you, Marleybone is just plain awesome.....
I was wondering what you've been up to! Are you on summer vacation? I am!!! :D

I am on break until the 17th of July, then I'm back to school. Going to cram as much drawing in as I can.

I go to a perennial school, which means that you go to school year-around. I still get the same amount of break as everyone else, but it is just spread out.

The breaks are only three weeks (summer break is four) but the intervals of school between the breaks is nine weeks. I go to school for nine weeks, get a three week break, then go back.

It is nice, but it sucks since I get less of a summer.

oh yes, year-round school...for the longest time, I wanted to go to one...but then I realized I sort of like the long breaks and then working your butt of for summer vacation XDD
That's quite different! Hopefully, you'll enjoy your "summer break" :D

Your style reminds me of Kubo. The creator of Bleach.
I like it.

I get that a lot. I admit, I do base my style off Bleach.
