Viral Infection by LancerMonna Viral Infection by LancerMonna
I made this lineart last weekend and finally finished it just now. This is Gabriel Dubois form my Dues Ex Machina series that I'm currently working on. But this time he's fully colored. *u* He's definately one of my favorite and developed characters for the story. As for his personality, . . . well just consider the traits for the Beta fish or Siamese fighting fish, and you will get a taste of his character. ^_^

I also will be submitting this to the contest.

This is very impressive, and caught my eye instantly. I LOVE the colors and patterns...it has such a psychedelic otherworldly feel to it. The skin tone and eyes are amazing as well! :heart:

Thank you. I had a lot of fun working on it. And was happy that it didn't take me that long to do. But as for coloring I don't think when I color I just put them down as I do and see if they relate to the other colors that I've already put down. Sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't. lol

LOL. A lot of people are saying my work is psychedelic lately. :lmao: I never intended to have it that when I began working on this style but I'm happy with how everything has come along so far. As for the eyes I was going for entrancing, but I never thought that it would get so many positive reviews from so many people. lol

This is one of the first works that my own that I completely and truely like.

Thanks. I believe that my style demands that I color this way no matter how much I would wish to change it. On the plus side it has become easier for me to color this way which makes me very happy, but it makes it harder to color darker themed works with this style. >.>, . . . I will have to work very hard on that.

There's room to move in terms of your style and colouring, but I really love the way you colour as it is! As for darker themed stuff well yeah practice makes perfect isn't that what they say? :P

LOL Thanks.

You knpw, It really wasn't my objective to color the fish to make it look like fire. I just needed the colors to balance off all the blue from Gabriel. In a way, the firey Beta makes a lot of sense and fits its' character nicely. This fish is key to Gabriel's personality so I'm happy that it came out the way that it did.

:iconar-yue:
Ar-Yue Featured By Owner Oct 15, 2006
Yes, it does balance the blue which is a good job that you didn't stop it there or left it out.

I should really start using crazy colours and reading up on it. Colours is my worst fault along side composition.

Still!! The details are like, whoa. :XD::XD: And a lot of people just take, like, hours or even just minutes to make one picture just so they can show something. I mean, it's okay if they're bored or whatever, but if their intention is simply to get views or favorites here, that's what I don't like. XP

LOL thank you. I have enjoyed creating my characters for so very long and am pleased that they are starting to look the way that I have invisioned them to appear.

As for Gabriel he don't consider himself to be beautiful or gorgeous. He's the kind of person that just doen't like the person that he refelcts abck at him from within the mirror every morning. ^^; But he's not afraid to use other's perception of him to get what he wants.

I'll shut up now because that's enough about Gabriel. XD

The lineart didn't take that long to draw out. It's mostly the coloring that kicked my butt. LOL I usually visualize the final coloring in my head am very surprised that it came out almost the same as how I imagined it. To say that I'm thrilled is an understatement.
