that was a quick update Tongue
i really like the contrast the thick lines bring to the table, and the shading is awesome!
the little pup is also adorable~
the only thing i'd say is maybe some more shading on naga to show her fur?

Korra looks pretty good Smiley Like gf said, the eyes look a little off, but that may just be the angle of her face Cheesy

The Naga pic however..... OMG. I am dying from the cute X3 If they ever show polar bear-dog puppies in the show, I think I may explode xP

I also like the thick lines. The varience in thickness really adds depth to what is a simple, but lovley drawing. I also like the fur effect you achieved on Naga's fur. It's hard to shade with ink, and you did well.

edit: You made me want Naga to have puppycubs  Cheesy

I'm trying to wrap my head around that texture.  What is it, cause it works great for Naga.

Thanks for the comments everyone!

GF: Yeah I wasn't sure whether I was in danger of overdoing the shading or not...its definitely more prominent on paper I'd say.

PBF: Damn the angle of her face :/ I thought you may enjoy Naga pups though Cheesy

Washer: Cool, thanks. My lines just keep getting thicker it seems.

Fleur: Ah glad you liked the shading. It was a bit of a fluke really but I was pretty pleased with how it turned out all things considered.

Kazma: Thanks man, again with the shading it was just something that sort of happened when my brush ran dry.

Djinn: Hmm interesting comparison. I definitely see it. I love it when you draw links like this that I may or may not have actually considered Cheesy

Ubernoob: Yeah its basically just a synthetic brush with ink that's run a bit dry. Then just...mush it round a bit. The texture of the paper probably helped here, I don't know if that would have looked as good on computer paper or something.

Toph: WE STILL HAVEN'T TEAMED UP YET! We'll have to one day though~

So since the deadline is past, here's my entry for the ASN banner contest, which I basically just drew and scanned and arranged really.



And, thanks to some help from Toph13139, I've been working on my heads and figures so here's a couple of Avatar-related ones: Asami and Mako.





Not a very exciting update I'm afraid but I promise I'll be back with something better at some point in the near future.

Very unique banner design, I like it!

The Asami and Mako pieces are simple, but there is something really elegant about them. Smiley

I really like your banner design! I love that you drew it rather than just using screenshots, as Kazma said, its a very unique design!

I like the Mako and Asami drawings as well, the varience in the line width adds so much intrest, I just love the way ou use ink.

Nice banner! I recognise the character for peace (ping) but not the other one... Asami looks like she's ready to play some basketball. And kill the competition in the process Cheesy I love it. Interesting style on Mako, I like his pose. What did Toph13139 help you with, exactly? I recognise some of her style here.

Yay! My advices are working! I really like the banner though. It's a shame you couldn't enter it on time (or you did?). Again, I really like your style. It's so unique and yours are the kind of drawings one sees and can say "oh, this is definitely Grieves'". I guess I mean that your style is very... You. Yeah. And no one's youer than you. XD And you still owe me a team-up!

Kazma: Thank you, with the Mako one I was going for a smoother sort of thing. The look of that ended up being a little inspired by Tintin, particularly the spotlight image often associated with the animated series.

Fleur: Thanks, I really had to draw it because I am terrible at making graphics Cheesy

djinn: Together they mean equality (and I even asked Icy for confirmation :p). And Toph helped me mainly with the drawing of heads, giving me a good technique where the head is divided into two parts, an initial oval shape and then the lower part of the face however you want it. Thanks!

Washer: Thank you, I'm just hoping its blue enough for the mods Lips sealed

GF: Haha thanks for the help by the way when I was making it~ The Asami one, to be honest, was just a small little quick drawing at the bottom of a crowded piece of paper, but I happened to like it more than any of the other figures I drew that day.

Toph13139: Yeah thanks for the tips! Oh no, I entered on the second day or something. Its just that they suggested not posting them anywhere while the contest was going, lest it compromise our chances. And we definitely need to team up, I'll get on that.

Here is...Makorra in space:

asdfghjkl :O
that. is. epic.

of all your pieces, easily one of my favorites, if not my favorite~
i'm tempted, with your permission of course, to go set that as my computer background XD
go post it in the shipping thread!
gosh, i love the way you did the background by cutting it like that Cheesy
korra and mako's expressions are fantastic too!! it's just missing that damn shark and spaceman battle *waves fist*

welcome! btw, how small are we talking? i realized a week ago just how much a scanner actually blows up a page!

You're style would fit perfectly with 'industrialized' Republic City posters.
