Kiriban - Guns 'n Skirts by ICanReachTheStars Kiriban - Guns 'n Skirts by ICanReachTheStars
EDIT: I FORGOT THE PATTERN @____@ Even after telling myself so many times not to forget adding it ugghhhhh- well I drew it now :')
WAY OVERDUE kiriban prize drawing for *stephaniescarlet!! She captured my 50.000 views kiriban in October last year omg I don't think I've ever taken so long to draw something I'm so sorry ;___; Because I was so slow I decided it had to be as good as possible so I challenged myself;; Perspectief, background and buildings, MY WEAKNESSES. But it paid off, I'm very happy with this, so I really hope you like it too *stephaniescarlet! ;___; Here are your bounty hunter girl Green and Red, ready to take 'em all down! (Note: These girls are some kind of bounty huntersl they dress up as little children looking lost and when a predator comes over to "help them" they recognise them, hunt them down and sell 'em to the police!

Reference I got:

As for the perspective, I'm extremely happy with how Green turned out (obviously she's the girl with the red hair/Kyoko hair). But Blue just.. didn't work out ^^; I wanted her to have her back seen but with her upper body turned to us, as if she's back-to-back with green. But because of this I had a hard time drawing her legs and after redrawing them many times asking some help from others every now and then.. I just kinda gave up ^^; Better luck next time! I'm enabling the critique option so in case you can help me, feel free to write a critique in which you can teach me how to get her right ;__;

Also don't even get me started on that buildings-background XD I tried to copy it as good as possible from the (pixeled;; ) reference I got and tried to put it in perspective aswell, I've used lines and a point where everything comes togheter to try to make it right.. at least, I had already drawn the fence before using them so it got a little funky because of the editing I did to it. Drawing the left side of the drawing took me 3 hours in total ;__; But I'm VERY happy with it still :D It is, apart from the missing logo on top of the "tokidoki" sign (I was lazy..) about identical!

Let's see.. (the longer and bigger the drawing takes the more I want to mention about it too).. the coloring was a challenge because I really wanted it to be clear how bright the sun was, also to strongen the effect of this whole drawing being seen from a low perspective, so I used a lot of dark shadows and bright lightning etc. The coloring is also something I'm very happy with here, I like all the patterns and such too. Well.. that's about it I guess xD

Green & Blue (c) *stephaniescarlet
Art by me, sketch on paper and lined and colored in Paint Tool SAI, about 14 hours of work.
Thanks to those who came to my Livestream today! <3 I worked real hard on it today because of that which is why it's fiiiinally finished now! ~
Drawn while listening to Efteling (Dutch amusement/theme park) music, I recommend it to everyone! Especially Spookslot (Danse Macabre) and Villa Volta ~

I hate drawings guns btw, because 1; they're kinda difficult to draw and 2; Violent ;___; Sure swords are violent too but I don't really hear about many people being killed by swords nowadays, especially when compared to guns... But this was requested so it's alright :')

"Guns 'n skirts" but they're both actually wearing dresses haha. But I gave the file this name in a hurry and it sounds better than "Guns 'n dresses" I think so this is it! Also it's half past eleven time for bed (read; Playing ACNL in bed ;D)

FINALLY DONE WOOOOHHHH *sees list of things that NEED to be completed this week* .. well I won't be bored I guess
//btw you're awesome if you read thise whole description, feel free to put a :star: in a comment on this and I'll tell you just how awesome you are and how good it is of you to read it! Even if they are long I believe descriptions are essentional to read to fully understand a drawing!

I'm new to Deviantart, I'm more familiar with music than drawing so here goes my first Critique. I'll do my best. (:

You made a really nice drawing of those two girls from the reference.
Of course in your own style, that's what I like about it. :D

I think the problem with the blue one is the posture, I'm not able to stand IRL like she does.

The background is awesome!!! It's a nice modern feeling, even with the forrest. It fits perfectly i.m.o.
About the coloring, it's impressive! :D

Keep up the good work, I hope this critique can help you.
