Yellow Beauty Burns Gold

Yellow Beauty Burns Gold

Based on Barbara voice actress from RoosterTeeth (youtube).

Character speculation on the upcoming character for RWBY inspired by Yellow. Character name is not known but will be announced June 1st at A-Kon. This is totally of my fan design and is NOT the character herself. 

Marker, Sharpie, and White-Out on a 22 in x 28 in posterboard

Hey did you know that the trailer is out now, and my character design was way off? Well you're in luck! Click on the link to the youtube channel video! Now remember, you need to make it HD because it's totally worth it and OHHHHHHH NOOOOOOOOO SHE'S HAWT

Happy watching! (also sorry FAC but when I edited this it would let me scroll down to "Real People" again to categorize this correctly)

MadamePenguinThank you~ I was hoping that it would go for "shine" since yellow is supposed to burn gold which then made me think shiny and the outline of the character looks like it has armor so I was like MORE SHINY. Hope it doesn't look so detailed that it's overwhelming htough

luckylace222That is a giant posterboard! Well, you certainly have the traditional cell-shading look with choice of super detail somewhere else down! Who says we need expensive markers/colors to make this quality of work?

To be honest, having a tank-character for Yellow would really work! I just hope she will not be super feminine. I want her to be really really bad-@$$- like red. ...But more anti-social like. Cloud? Like Lightning...Oh god...

ANyways! I must say that I like her shiny gauntlet the most and the incredible detail of her shining armor (you are getting better at the shines; I forgot, do you use white out or gel pen?). And the haiiiiirrrr. HOw did you blend the green and blue to look so nice in the background? 12 hours?! Half a day! Should you not be sleeping and eating and watching porn instead!

You are really leaving me behind; hahaha, as if! I am drawing a giant No. 6 picture with watercolor at Gabby's house (if they will just LET me into the house to get my art supplies)!

MadamePenguinI'm so totally done with expensive markers, but sharpies are really expensive now as well. They don't last as long as I would hope. I used the white out pen for most of the shines in this piece.

I want Yellow to have like super armor, but I have a feeling that she or Weiss will most likely be the group leader.

As for the background, I started with a light blue-green (more blue) color and then layered yellow on top of the edges of the blue and colored out. To get the thorns, I used a dark green and outlined some of them with the white out. The reason I spent a full 12 hours straight doing it is because she was doing a live video interview with my friends and I was invited to watch so I wanted to show Barbara what I drew for her.
