Donut Hunter by telophase Donut Hunter by telophase
Here's the 2442 kiriban, as requested by ~icqjay. And as I said in my journal, the next time someone asks me for Vash the bloody Stampede, they're getting him naked, because drawing that costume SUCKED! Yes I know I got bits of it wrong. *telophase can't draw guns either, so I didn't even try. You guys will survive, I promise you.

My first time doing cel shading successfully. You'd think I'd have done it before, with all my digital painting stuff, but it always looked horrid. This is the first time I'm reasonably satisfied with it.

I was going to do a background and all that, but I got this done and said the hell with it and threw the off-center box on there to fake it. Fake Background no Jutsu! That's my ninja way!

And now to start ~chibipoe's exceptionally challenging request...

[BTW - You'll really have to fullscreen this. Since it's in landscape orientation, it gets shrunk exceptionally small. I PROMISE it's *much* larger than that!]

So, how many people have asked you to draw Vash naked because of your description? *wiggles eyebrows* Anyway, this is a really awesome picture of Vash. :heart: I think all the time you spent on his costume was well-worth it. I love his pose, especially how you drew his arms and legs. :D

If the next time someone requests Vash they are getting him naked, i think i may just request him a lot ^_~ Hehe, this is soooo cute, he looks adorable as always! I really like the pose. It's great to see good poses besides just the usual standing... sitting... etc. He looks truly awesome.

:D Thanks! The pose was originally a crouch, but I got his legs too short and when I lengthened them, all of a sudden he was sittign isntead of crouching. Ah well, it works. :D

I hope he finds some on his search. It is important to have a healthy supply of donuts otherwise...bad stuff happens...like gangs of people killing each other. Donuts resist mind control ^^

nice work with the cell shading

the hardest part is layering the colors from layers of brightness to contrasts in order to give it that glimer look

you did a fine job, my recommendation maybe in the future is to try bluring some of the jagged and roughed cell shaded sides that I seem to see in his trenchcoat to smooth them out.

I figured I'd leave the edges there because they distract from how incredibly non-smooth my linework is. XD

Too bad for the guns, but I know well how difficult they are. And as for the trenchcoat... Well, I learnt some trick to make it, and now I can draw it with my eyes shut! XD

Heh. One day I will know how to draw guns, but since I'm not actually practicing any, I expect it will not be some day soon. That coat ... eesh. :) I think it was somewhere around all the straps and things on his legs that I posted the naked comment to my journal.

Great job on that. Very clean and crisp with the cel-shading. All very Vash for that casual lankiness and charm.

Beautiful, beautiful job.

thanks! You have to get the arms and legs right to nail Vash. Through the course of this, I discovered somethign I didn't notice before -- his eyebrows are brown, while his hair is blond. Heh.

I like the cel shading I always think it gives pics a very professional look very fast. Though I never tried it myself. But I definitely will too someday.
You did a very good job on the boots and the pants the details are very nice there, and a good choice of colours, I may say.

Heh - thanks. I had my Trigun artbook open and was trying to get as close to that as I could. I think the browns could have been darker, but there's a balance between getting them the right color and hiding the details. :)

I think the cel-shading was definitely successful. Makes him look all nice and slick. XD On your next venture in cel-shading (if there is one), you might want to experiment with the highlights more. Admittedly, I'm not that great with cel-shading either, so take that with a grain of salt. ^_^

Anyway. I have a tendancy to fixate on random things in images I look at, and Vash's legs are it for this one. They're just so long and slender and sexy. o.o

:icontelophase:
telophase Featured By Owner May 12, 2004  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Yeah, I need to emphasize the highlights more. On the full-size version, they're all nice and subtle, and when it's shrunk to Web size, most of them vanish.

I based this off a gesture drawing I'd done in figure drawing class a couple of years ago, and after I first sketched it, I realized his legs looked all stumpy - they were normal human prportions. XD But this is what Photoshop was invented for, and a short cut-and-paste later, my sketch was modified so I could easily redraw it and give him his proper lanky legs. :)

I soooo feel your pain... And I didn't even draw his costume, I just colored it. It took FOR-EV-ER!! Vash is an awesome character and everything.... but I seriously don't think I'll ever be drawing him, just because of his outfit. Oi. Awesome outfit.... impossible to draw.... You did a great job on it, though ^____^ Uberswifty picture.

Fake Background no Jutsu is GREAT ^_____^ I use it all the time. That, and Cheap Background no Jutsu, and Invisible Background no Jutsu. That one requires real skill to master.

You know, there was actually a time in my misspent youth when I considered *making* that costume? It wouldn't be for me, because Vash is male, tall, and skinny and I am the exact opposite of that, but if I ahd found someone that fit that description, I would have done so.

Now? *HELL* no! Just *drawing* it was enough to convince me that if I ever decide to do that, I will find someone and beg them to put me out of my crack-addled misery.

Thanks! :D
