:bulletblue: My part of the art trade with :iconbec-sparrow:, her character Becki Sparrow.

It was so much fun to draw Becki and it was especially entertaining to colour her with my new tempera colours. I still need to practise how to use them, but so far I'm really happy with the outcome - and with the scan, too.

Becki is a pirate, that's why I've chosen a cabin-like atmosphere ^^"" and I wanted to use the picture as a try for several details XD like the curtain and the table/wall. But the tempera colours didn't disappoint me.

@*bec-sparrow: I hope you like her and I hope the liberties I took with her clothing are okay ^^" She was so much fun to draw ♥


Tools: tempera colours, coloured pencils, white ink

Thank you so much :thanks:
and I just colour really simply I think... I just colour everything with one base colour, than I blend in some shadings in a darker colour and add some more shadings with a coloured pencil... and then I add some highlights with white ink ^^" it's really not that difficult ^^"
I'm really happy you like it though :thanks:

Colours are great, I especially like how you shaded and detailed the background! =D I like her features as well, they are pretty in a slightly "roguish" way. ^^

Your detail is amazing. I love the textures added to the wood panels in the wall to the torn edges of the maps. You use of materials is great as well. Its nice to see another wonderful traditional media artist on DA. Your work definitely deserves more attention. <3

Oh my goodness! I am so sorry for writing SUCH a late comment >_____> *hands you a stick* feel free to attack me with it! :XD:

Oh sweetie, I really wish I could emphasise just how much I absolutely ADORE this!

First of all I absolutely envy how well you can work with paints! You always get yours colours so smooth and rich and in the LINES!! Unlike some... (me :XD:) Those new paints of yours are beautiful and they really make your work look all the richer and just so pretty! :heart:

I really love how you've put Becki into your style! her face looks so beautiful and elegant and I really like the shape for her chin and the faint blush on her cheeks! She looks like a total pirate princess :giggle:!

Also the liberties you've taken with her outfit are gorgeous! I always love to see people's variations on pirate clothes and you've made her look wonderful in them as well as ladylike and incredibly sexy! Her boots look utterly stunning! :lol: The lacing on her shirt and the fishnets are such wonderful details! :heart:

I really love the background as well! The pirate map on the wall looks so authentic and the wooden walls and the table really give the stmosphere of a ship's Captain's quarters! I just love how much effort you've put into everything!!

This is so gorgeous! Thank you so much for trading and I really hope that you like my half as much as I LOVE this half! I'll get it finished soon! :hug:

Ah, no need to worry :3 real life eats free time... I have to learn that every week again XD

But I'm sooooo glad that you like the picture ^^ I was al ittle worried about the liberties I took with her, but I'm relieved that you like her :D
And when you told me that you wanted a picture of your little pirate I saw her in the captain's quarters ^^ so I'm glad you like the setting :hug:

So there is no need to thank me for the picture, it was so much fun to draw and I have to thank you for sharing your lovely characters with us and to let me draw your Becki :hug:

Eigentlich mag ich happy endings... Allerdings bin ich ein Riesenfan von Drama und traurige Liebesgeschichten, die Platz für eine Fortsetzung lassen XD
Aber mal sehen ob und wie ich noch Zeit finde fürs Weiterschreiben wenn jetzt meine Diplomarbeitszeit anfängt in 2 Wochen +_+
