Nightshade: The players by Hannarrawr Nightshade: The players by Hannarrawr
So many things are wrong with this picture! xD (slightly hating myself right now...)
This is actually pretty old now, the first time I drew Nightshade's characters all together, so ... go easy yeah? Emote - Shy Wave 01 

 Say hello to the most prominent characters in the manga "Nightshade".

Nightshade is the alias of the seemingly unopposable entity ruling over the rough city district dubbed "downtown" from behind the scenes.
In this dark, dangerous place where vicious gangs act as government and executives keep their hit-men on speed dial, is it possible that one fair haired upper class schoolboy could perform the impossible and unmask Nightshade or will the mastermind put him in his place?

Let's just hope he makes it back home for now...


See more on "Nightshade"s development behind the scenes:

You know when you draw something late and it seems fine, but you look back at it and realize how wrong it is? That's what this picture is! xD
I should be shot for rushing
Which characters look anatomically incorrect to you? (Just in case I have managed to miss anything...)

The perspective in the background is a bit off, but the rest looks good! Alls those characters must have really been a bunch of work :)

Thanks for the feedback! Completely agree >.<
The background was too much of an afterthought and a tad rushed - you know when you work on something for so long that you become blind to your mistakes? xD
But thanks very much ^_^

No problem! :) A lot of thanks for watching me by the way <3
When I work on paintings for to long, I tend to see all my mistakes and get totally demotivated, as in zero motivated :/ (I never like my paintings, when I finish them) But yeah I know the feeling, than you just want to end a painting and are rushing things like the background down :D

These (onepixelbrush.com/tutorials/) are the most helpful tutorials I found as in... ever? Just to spread the love :D dunno if thats the kind of painting style you want to engage in, since you are more of the drawing type... but there are a couple of gold layermode tips anyway^^

No worries, My pleasure ^^
I actually do a lot more art than I post on here (in completely different styles!), so the tutorials are certainly applicable!
And since this picture I've been in a hardcore detail mode where I don't allow myself to class something as finished unless I fix every mistake and add as much to it as possible, It's kinda brutal but it much improves what I do produce :P (I should just not be lazy...)
Thanks the tuts, really appreciated! :D

Why don't you post it here then? I'd really like to see more from you! :) Thats probably a workflow I should tag along (but I'm the laziest person ever (that statement is not for competing with you in laziness :D)) What i have to learn atm is to stop pushing everything at max detail and just find the focalpoints to render :/

It's mainly portfolio work, studies and commissions from the real world (as in, not on DA aha xD)
I think I'll upload some realism soon,  just realized I have NONE on my page! x)
I suppose I've been mainly using my profile to promote my independent manga, the "other work" section looks a tad lonely :D

And I know that feeling! But it can be so tempting to drift onto a more interesting part and leave the important bits behind >.< I think I'm guilty of every art mistake there is xD

You're welcome~ 

And how come you're able to draw abs so perfectly? I can't even do that ; A;
Reply
:iconhannarrawr:
Hannarrawr Featured By Owner Oct 14, 2013  Professional Artist
Well, I hope this might help!


I draw the trapezius muscles first (like a coat hanger!)
Then add shoulders, then the chest, and that tells me where to place the abs. It's sort of like a jigsaw puzzle xD
And then you can just flesh it out as much as you want :3
