Planning and Preparation: Nix by JayAxer Planning and Preparation: Nix by JayAxer
"Nix can always put what she has in her mind down onto paper, canvas, stone, etc. She rarely takes time to prepare a layout unless working on a large mural, such as is the case here as she kneels to sketch out a design and some notes. For all her talent, she is not so organized with her tools. She walks on her sketches, shovels aside old canvas and steps over containers of paint to get around her studio. The goal with her is the finished product, then moving on.
Here Nix is in her full outfit. She wears mainly the undergarment when doing serious painting as to not have flaps of clothing get in the way."

No that is not supposed to be Japanese, Chinese, Korean, etc.

This was off of the Repose Portfolio thus no further prints will be made of it.

Pencil on typing paper inked with techpen then coloured in Painter IX.

How do you get the shading so smooth and well-blended?! I use photoshop and can never get it like that. D:

round camelhair under oils. It's actually the only brush I use.

Oh yeah! Is Nix's skin white and black or just black, or something? Her nose is black but the insides of her ears look white, so black and white, right?

Love the way you color its so crisp and clean, and spot on perfect.

You draw very well too, anatomy is always solid and strong, and believable. Your characters always seamlessly interact with the environment.

Prism-urase Featured By Owner Feb 23, 2008
I dunno if I'm translating your "anatomy is always solid and strong" right or not, but yeah, she seriously looks like a grown man could sit/stand on her back without much discomfort to her... something that most art I've seen really doesn't show... at all.

Oh god... I can just imagine it! Someone hopping on her back and pretending she's a surf/skate board XDD

Not so much strong in the literal sense, rather she looks like she occupies her space believably, like she exists. It's hard to make it look like the character is truly interacting with her environment it's an illusion he pulls off.

Indeed... words fail me in describing how great it would be if he were to make a comic or animation using the same art/coloring style he used in this picture.
