Mr Snippy for Snippy by Mabiruna Mr Snippy for Snippy by Mabiruna
I did this artwork for Snippy from vk.com (id mr_snippy)
Cauze I just wanted to:
a) give him a present, cause he made my day today
b) do finally something about RA. My lovely lovely lovely thing. But I always had no time for artworks I Wanted to do. I just needed to study and work for a money. =( ENOUGH!

and finally I just wanted to make something good after my long "vacation" here. I loooove to draw portraits. And RA means a lot for me. As :iconalexiuss: too. He's great artist. and, to be honest, maybe somebody thinks, he's just good artist and illustrator, but he's my lovely artist. Cause of his "dreaminism". He creates World I see. World I see every morning, every walk, every trip, every second of my life. He just can draw things I... always knew, always understood, as I felt, when I saw his "machinery of the stars" (his first artwork I saw). There's no more artists there and anywhere, who can capture this "reality" so close to another side of this reality.
I don't actually know, Who am I. Don't know, who I will become. I just know, that RA is the one and only reason, Why I Can Draw. When I saw comic about billboard, I decided, that it will be very cool, if I'll just try to draw better. than I could that time. That time... Lol. Long time ago. I drew like a child =___=. Actually I was just schoolchild that time. Now I'm in university. Now I'm an artist. Better than anybody in this university. I have orders, works. People, who work with me, Love me and my arts. In Every work I do I try to become better and better. And forever Alexiuss will be some kind of guiding light in this race with myself.

Of course, I'm not as good as he is. And I have ho refs or something to make it easier. So maybe I have some problems with proportions. But I really tried to make this Snippy perfect.

It's all PS CS5. I used 3 textures for wall (2) and for window (1). 4 different brushes and all my brain. Time? hmmm... this evening.
actually, I did "third" version of Snippy's gas-mask. Suddenly, huh. But I don't want to mark it as a mistake. I think, it looks nice.
Just forgot, how to draw nose for the second one (from which I remember only filters I like so much, cause I have the same on my own gas-mask)

bonus version with different coloring. Just love it. But it's not "right" coloring for RA at all.

Heh, ok =) Alexiuss posted it in his gallery, so you can post it anywhere, but... if you can, write there, that I drew this portrait for an amazing Snippy I know, as a gift)) and it will be ok =)

congratulations, your artwork is on the da frontpage now.
it is a bit sad that it is there over alexiuss´account and not your own. which means people are too lazy to do a few clicks more and credit, comment and fav the art at the source.

This looks really great. I love how you conveyed the idea of Snippy's bipolarity through that simple text in the window :) And the bonus image looks great too <3

I LOVE THIS.
And yup, Romantically Apocalyptic is like this world seen through a truth-mirror of shiny dream glass.
This is a totally fantastic piece of Pure Awesome Art.

Well. When I spoke about "reality", I spoke about all Alexiuss's arts. RA is just part of it. Based on his story, with characters and timeline. RA is post apocalyptic reality anyway. While other arts are just like... Ray Bradbury's stories. When we can see the world from the other side, other look. That's what I wanted to say.
And thank you so much ^^
And by the way, even in pure post apocalyptic reality RA shows us another side of all of it.

Indeed.
I need to look at more of his art. I mean, I've scanned my eyes over it and thought "my brain is going to melt into rainbows if I look at this too long" but I have not given it a proper look...
Ray Bradbury is awesome. ^^

Спасибо огромное, ооочень приятно =) Эх, если бы ни было Алексиуса, не стала бы я таким художником. Это так клёво всё-таки, осознание подобного ^_^
А Сниппи просто чудо. У меня была творческая депрессуха довольно долгая. Работала только по заказам, себе не рисовала. А тут мы с ним разболтались, и так он меня порадовал, что я взяла и... нарисовала =)

А мне кажется все равно были бы ^__^
Но это очень здорово, если Виталий и RA являются для вас источником вдохновения)

Не была бы, точно знаю. У меня весь мой путь тернистый по самокопанию и становлению лучше идёт именно от Виталия. Мне друг скинул его механику звёзд несколько лет назад. И всё. Крыша поехала. Я увидела художника, который смотрит на мир "моими глазами", но в отличие от меня он мог это изобразить. А я нет. Вот тут-то и началось... Не могу сказать, что уже тогда метила на тот уровень, что сейчас имею. (а сейчас мне его мало. Продолжаю самокопание и обучение) Я вообще думала, что уж так-то я точно не смогу. Хех... Но я просто хотела быть лучше. Сидела смотрела часами на арты Виталия, на его же туториалы, рисуя всё-равно по-своему. Смотрела на "соседних" постапокалиптических художников, которые так не вдохновляли, но были хороши по качеству. У них тоже пыталась чего-то понять. Однажды даже разревелась над облачком, которое пыталась нарисовать XD с воплями "КАКОНИЭТОДЕЛАЮТ! МАГИКОЛДУНЫ! КАК! КААААК".

Хах, это все очень потрясающе)
Я слышала, что сам Виталий временами ищет себе художников, кто мог бы помогать ему с комиксом. Вы не думали с ним поработать, например? Я думаю, он был вы не против =) Впрочем, скоро он тут отпишется, тогда и спросите^^
Может быть, он самолично вам в чем-то поможет, чтобы вы подняли свой уровень =)

Он уже предлагал мне нарисовать гест-фрейм для RA. Это было весной, я сессию сдавала и была завалена тяжёлой работой, я тогда ответила, что немного апосля с радостью, но потом он чего-то не отвечал ничего =) так что я вся ушла в сессию и работу и как-то подзабылось это дело. Хотя я и правда с радостью.

А я у людей помощи не прошу обычно. Сама пилюсь с собой, главное, чтоб они были как Музы =) вот тут тот самый вариант.
