black and white art trade: lee by Derrewyn black and white art trade: lee by Derrewyn
Lee for :iconsubishi:

I hope she likes this, because it was so much fun to draw! It's veeeeeery strange of me to draw usual teenagers, first, because I am not fond of that age in particular (most of my characters seem to be in their late twenties/early thirties) and secondly, because I rarely have the chance, so this was like... uncharted territory XD It was nice for a change, both to look for a different vibe in a drawing, and also to try to draw different body types (this whole art trade thing has been awesome for that, I have to draw lots of different look/personality ladies O.O)

Subishi mentioned that Lee is rather tomboyish, but with a secret girly side, so I immediately thought "secret diary!" and how in her privacy she would feel more at ease with herself.

those white walls still demand me to draw something on them o.o Will probably add shelves later on

*jumps merrily back to the drawing board*

I love your lineart. x) It looks like it could be something out of a professional manga magazine.

Ah, I also like the walls just the way they are now: gives a little something to the atmosphere! <3

Now I'm a little worried about my part of the trade, if all yours are going to looks this good. o.o
Quite a challenge to match this kind of a quality, but I'll take you on! :love:

This is wonderful! Wonderful wonderful wonderful! I love the idea of a secret diary, and the way you incorporated the little heart on the t-shirt is great :D It's great how thick her hair looks, and I agree with :iconparadoxandsnapshots: - the legs and feet are kind of to die for. I really love all of this :love: As for your end...I was thinking of drawing either Berwick or there either you'd like more?

Yay! I am so very glad you like it! I always get this weird pressure of over-worrying when I am drawing for someone else (but maybe it's normal to feel that?), so it's a huge relief to know you liked it :hug:

On berwick or morag, I really like both of them, so whoever you prefer is fine *.* *waits eagerly*
Subishi Featured By Owner Jan 29, 2009  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Haha, I think it's totally normal to feel that - or at least, I definitely do. I loved it though, so no worries at all! And awesome :D I finally have some time this weekend, so I'll try to get the drawing done in the next few days!

I really can't get enough of your style. Your use of black and white is just so clever and beautiful... This one is rather simple and manga-looking (only for the ''coloring'' choice and technique) but still very well done.
