Akane by theCHAMBA Akane by theCHAMBA
So it's new theme time.
This round's theme is:
Mike Mignola
the pieces can be busts, waist up or even full body.
It's really how I feel about the character and how I see the character (there's no choice in the matter, sorry)

fun stuff, will hopefully get a better hang of it.

cheers for watching and will catch you's again tomorrow!

ALSO $30 full colour bust commissions open tomorrow (no OC's)

Mike's Heavy blacks and solid colors are not just plain jane, they are iconic. I love his work and the fact that you did something in his style of art.

Great work!

I was about to say this looks Mignola-esque than I read your comment.

This is wonderful! You capture the essence of Mike's art but it still looks very you. I loooove the skull smoke

Interesting usage of the intense black shading and orange highlight. Feels like a collaboration between Gainax and Capcom.

Ok, you NAILED mike mignola, because right before I opened the deviation I totally thought it looked hellboy-ish.

Awesome looking, man :)

Totally got the Mignola going on, the bar of light over her and the random spots on the dark background especially sell it, he's always doing that stuff.

it's those trademark things that kind've do it
but there is more to it than that, and with more observation and practice I shall experiment to learn more.

I'd really love to finally get one of these and see my character in Mignola style, that would blow my mind. He inspired my characters, it would be totally full circle.

... or like, another circle within the circle went full. Whatever.

this is a great piece. Im a huge fan of mignola (aren't we all) I i love the way you've managed to re-create the feel of his work wile still remaining true to your style. His style is so bold it's easy to get lost in it, but i still feel a strong sense of Chamba in this. Brovo!

I'm really glad, and i feel i am lucky, that you draw for me! Your picture is really good, and cool. I think, you catched Akane's personality, you give a mysterious and a deathly aura for her. I love the colours and the contrasts. Skulls in the clouds/fog is a good idea.
You are a great artist!
Thank you very much again! :)
(And sorry for my english)

Thanks.

I'm thinking most folks would think their OC's would look decent in that style, so you're probably not alone there.
