(drawn with pencil first, then outlined in Coleto brown 0.3 pen, colored with watercolors)
Lesson learned; NEVER WATERCOLOR OVER WATER-BASED INK PENS
. . . I'm an idiot.
. That's why this drawing has that weird smudgy texture thing goin' on, I tried to re-outlined the smudgiest lines after I was done watercoloring, but . . . . >.< it still looks off <XD
Also, the pen was brown, which is a warmer tone, so it leeched into the patches of color and turned everything extra warm-toned; Neji's skintone should be a ton paler
. . . .
So. The reason this drawing even exists: at my Japanese School, we had this assignment where we had to draw any anime/general character we liked (god knows why, but I wasn't about to question an ART project, so I just went with it even though it had like nothing to do with what we were learning in class >XD). I was all 'can we draw TWO characters we like?' and the teacher replied 'yes', SO I DID 8D!
. . . . I actually tried to make 'em look badass, but, well . . .
I'm sorry I failed. The kanji just barely visible in Tenten's scroll reads 'ten' which means 'heaven' (that kanji twice = TENTEN'S NAME XD), and I have no idea if that's the real kanji Tenten uses for maces, I just randomly put a kanji I knew there so it would look cool <XD.
I really don't know what kind of background to give this . . . I don't wanna let myself slack off and do a crappy 'tuft-of-grass' background like I always do, but I'm too tired to think of something better right now (it's 12:25am), so I decided to leave the background for later. If I ever get back to this at all
. . .
Tenten: HECK YEAH
, let's kick some bad-guy ASS! [link]
lolIdon'tknowXD I just listened to that song on repeat as I colored this. O_o XD!
* Neji and Tenten are characters from the manga/anime 'Naruto' by Masashi Kishimoto
