Eternal Seven » swords

So I heard of folks having all sorts of trouble with wacom and Ubuntu 10.04 Actually I heard about this a while ago and never upgraded my big workstation to the newest Ubuntu until this could be resolved. Today I decided to see if I can get it to work on my laptop which is sporting 10.04 and amazingly everything worked right out of the box… The only different part from before was that some of the configuration steps for The GIMP to work properly are located in different places and look different from what I remember them looking like in the past. This was not a big deal as it took me about 5 mins to get it running properly. So why people are having trouble? I have no clue.

Anyways, I figured I’d post here a quick sketch I just made.

Ubuntu 10.04 Sketch using The GIMP

All done with the GIMP, about 1 hour worth of scratching against my tablet while watching some silly movie.

Really looking forward to updates in the GIMP. I also need to figure out how to set up my strip bar for zooming, that slows me down the most right now. I’m going to play with this in the next weeks when I have some time and see if I can get it right and to stick. In the past I was able to configure it but every time when I rebooted I had to reconfigure the settings.

Update on 24th of October 2010

I worked on the above sketch a bit in Photoshop. Here are the results:

Swords & Tits Yet again!

I left the hand large on purpose, just rendered away with minimal updates to the shapes in the original drawing. I really need to get working on some serious digital paintings soon.

Little words beyond the title are needed to describe the contents of this post so enjoy!

About the drawings: The various characters depicted in this post are lesser characters from the Eternal Seven story. This post is being updated often with new material. It’s also quickly becoming a prime candidate for testing out a flash plugin…

Tits and Swords - Detail 1

The above character is an unreferenced pencil sketch for an assassin showcasing her weapons!

Tits and Swords - Detail 2

This character shared a page with the one above as a pencil sketch but the face did not look very good or convincing so I sculpted and blended the image in Photoshop until she looked better. There might be more updates to these images very soon.

Tits and Swords 3

The character above was also a pencil drawing which I blended and added some color to in Photoshop. No references were used, about 3 hours of work.

Flying Mage – September 2008

Here is a character which was motivated by the Sisters of Fate from God of War 2.

Flying Mage

The drawing was a very quick pencil sketch, it was darkened and modified in Photoshop. I should have more updates soon, it’s not quite finished yet!

Nude Fairy Assassin! – October 2008

Fairies are cute, unless they’re stabbing you in the face!

Fairy Assassin

Pencil sketch, I cleaned out the background in Photoshop.
