Gods, human painting is definitely not my field. This one was both frustrating and in it's own way fun to do, though.
You may ignore his shirt because I didn't know how to paint it and didn't actually even bother myself with it, hah..
Also, it seems like I'm going a lot with yellow lightning now, I've noticed I always have some certain color phases when I keep making pictures with certain color scheme. I dunno what that is *shrug*

Anyway, A singing James. A human form of Cutlass. And my, doesn't he look softie here. On purpose. ;P
I should go to bed.. gezus.

Puhh, ehkä kun pistää ihan liika monta tuntia sen tekemisee ja menettää joukon aivosoluja siinä ohessa ni ehkä siinä on aina pieni mahdollisuus joskus onnistuakin.. ;;

I don't know what it is about this piece. Okay, yeah, I do. You've always had that unique style you draw your humans and I can see that even though this is a realistic piece, that style carried over and you know what? It's really amazing. I love it - the fine, pointed features of his nose, his chin. Please, please paint humans like this more often. They're so attractive and don't ever doubt it. ;u; :heart:

Ahh, you're spoiling me with your somment, Finny.. ;;
Yeah, I bet there's a lot of my own style involved in this one still, despite it trying to be more to the realistic side. Mostly because I had no reference for this, so own style pushes in even stronger.. :XD: Thank you, I'm more than happy to hear my style pleases people's eyes.
And so nice hearing from you too after such a long time <3

Mm. The realism is definitely there, too. Especially in the lighting and the background, and the skin tones. It's really well done considering you didn't use a reference for any of it. ;u;
It's been too long, hasn't it? It's nice to hear from you, too. 8D

I love his sharp nose! What a great expression too~ especially that eye fff

mad props for tackling dramatic/low lighting... that has always been a beast for me. This looks like it should be the image for a CD cover <3

Hahaha, maybe it wasn't supposed to be that pointy ;; But I tried. <D
And thank you, indeed, this wasn't easy piece with the lightning, took endless amounts of fiddling around.. @_@ But I suppose I succeeded with it in the end.
Thank yous <3

Oooh but the nose works well in this shot at least 'u'

I think you did well! Reminds me of bar-lighting.

you're welcome!

btw, I realize this is a sketch but does James look alright here? [link]

The finished product will be done sometime tonight~

Well, glad to hear I succeeded since this is based on a little event when he sung in a bar. So yes, it's a bar. ;D

And arrr that is just awesome, damn I love his expression! He looks fine there, but he's missing his little scar and his ear piercings. Here, lemme toss ya some stupidly old ref of him.. [link]
With the piercings, he's not wearing those rings anymore, but has replaced them with black spiked bellbars.. something like this: [link]
Other than those, all good! Can' wait to see hurr <3

hsjkdhaskhdsa I'm so glad to hear you say that;;; your expressions and faces are freaking amazing :icontearfulplz:

oh ok! Thanks! Yeah I wasn't sure whether to put them on or not because he and El just woke up? Does he sleep in his piercings/put them on first thing? But thank you for the reff~ I can add them ^u^

Hahaha, no way, expressions are my worst enemy. Because gezus, 90% of time Can't draw them o_O
HA!: I was thinking that oh god, he looks so amazingly grumpy like he had just woken up, fff <3
And yeah, he wears them all times. Trust me, he'd sleep even his shoes on... I wouldn't be surprised if he did before Rip came under the same roof with him.
And thank you yourself, for doing this <3

'A' I never saw a problem with your expressions~ But I agree... they can be a PAIN IN THE ASS. Sometimes, the first scribble of it I do not paying attention comes out perfect (like in James's case tehre?) other times, like how Elliot's being actually, I have to redraw the fact like 12 times until I settle on something OTL.

hehe aww James... earlier in the relationship, my fiance slept/napped in his regular clothes too including shoes sometimes until I eased him into wearing pajama pants XD

Alrighty! I added his man-jewlery!


And it is about 70% done now, some panels need some touching up and I may add one more panel, but it'll be done today~

and no problem at all!! I feel that OC's are GREATLY underrated in most sectors of DA, so when I find designs I like, I try to show my support it greatly helps when the artists are nice/awesome as well!

Thanks a bunch, beastie. I'll... see about the commissions soon, gods.. Afraid to take human commissions because I'll get the feel I won't give the commissioners worth their money when mah humans tend to look like spacemonkeys with particularly twisted features ;; Not even trying to sound humble here xD
Maybe after I've finished some of my personal work and have a bit more free time from schooling, can take a commission from yaa if you wish. :>
