Incredible work. It's great to see Macross fan art in such sharp colors and perfect contrast. Your DYRL picture and the Alto Earring are may favorites. I'm going to have to take some pointers from you about coloring and shading :)

Wow quite cool to actually meet the person who did some of that art.

I've seen several pieces before and you are right they are rather famous... B))

Hey nel2012, I'd definitely be curious how you made the metallic shading on the Ex-Gear portion of the bust of Alto from your deviantart profile. It's something I'd like to see if I can attempt.

You mean this one uh?

I use pencil and ink first, for everyone of my drawings. Then I scan and color them in PS (or handpaint with markers).

In this case, I selected the area of the chest, and chose four different greys. I first filled the entire selected area with the lighter one, then I used a big soft brush to create the first shadow ,then the third and fourth greys to create the "deepness" . Last, one "lens flare" effect with another soft brush , to create that round light , using white color, and the same with a smaller brush to do the bright in the borders of the armour.

I have no tricks basically as you can see :p and I use official pics from the series and movies to pick and select the colors, that´s important.Hope I was helpful ^^

Very nice work - I'm a big fan of Copic markers too, but I get to use them less and less...

thanks!! I use two brands of markers (Copic and Kurecolor) I can buy only the latter here where I live, but they are great. Of couse I must keep practising, and I am sure I´ll never reach Mikimoto´s style ^^´

I am currently painting the big drawing ,with all the characters together, and will add some valks to make it look more "epic"

Beautiful!

Makes me think of a "Generations" picture where there would be characters from each era progressing across the picture.
