Mercury Bubbles Blast!

"Okay Zoisite! You want a piece of me? Cause you're about to eat my bubbles!!!"

Ahem...moving right along.

Well I was really going for Naoko's look here - can you tell? ^_^ Anyway, I luuurv this pic. It's the best one of Mercury I've ever done. The hands are pretty average but hey, I'm happy if they're the only things I'm having trouble with.

Okay, this was done in coloured pencils and a 0.2mm pen. I briefly ran it through Adobe Photoshop and brightened the colours cause my scanner takes such crappy images sometimes. It took approximately two - two 1/2 hours to draw, outline and colour. (Go me, must be a new record! ^_^)

I'm thinking of doing a series of scout attacks so be on the lookout for those when they show up. I may even do another one tomorrow cause it's the weekend and all.

Please post a comment and let me know where I can improve or just for the sake of it cause it let's me know what I've got right and what I need to work on.

Thanks and enjoy!

gravajaumbrosThis is really good, I love the coloring. There's not too much to criticize. The tiara doesn't look the same on both sides, but that's about it. The hair is particularly good. Although, I do prefer the Japanese terms, so this attack would be Shabon Spray. Keep up the good work.

RalindeThank you! Yeah I like the Japanese names and stuff now but I never minded the english ones and sometimes they make more sense anyway. ^_^

You know, I never noticed the tiara but I did notice that her legs are at wrong angles to one another and her right arm's too long.

Anyway, thank you for such a nice comment and good on you for been brave enough to slip in a little critism. So many people are afraid they'll get their heads bitten off so they don't do it but I always try to because I know that it helps me personally to improve my work.

RalindeYay! You agree with me and everyone else on that point too! Never quite worked out why I haven't got too many comments on this piece. Oh well, thanks!

ShadowWingwow! O_o This picture seriously doesn't have enough comments. It's awesome! You're really good with lighting and I love the coloring. -_^ Great Job!

RalindeWow Wing! I didn't realise you'd posted a comment on this piece. Thanks a bunch. ^_^ Thanks for the lighting comment, it's something I've been working on for ages so it's nice to know I finally seem to be getting there.

Yes, I don't know why it doesn't have many comments either. I was quite impressed with it anyway but oh well, I'm sure it'll get there eventually. Comments are just nice to have because often people give you ideas from them and they make you feel good about your art but too bad anyway.

Cheers! ^_^

ShadowWingwell I'm impressed, and... sad as is it to admit, you've surpassed me on the lighting. I'm still working on it for hair and face.

Moon_PrincessOMG! I LOVE HOW YOU DID IT!! =D
The coloring is awesome! You did great on making it look like Naoko-sensei's look! =3
Sailor Mercury isn't a favorite but she's still pretty cool. =)
*faves* Keep up the good work! ^o^

RalindeAwesome! Thank you! I was wondering when a comment was going to appear on this. Thank you for not disappointing me!!! ^_^ I always loved drawing Mercury. There's just something about seeing that normally cute, shy, blue haired girl genius on the war path. Poor Zoi, whether he's the goody or the baddy he's still just not very lucky with her when she gets worked up.
