Edit: Final, finished sketch added!
For those who don't know, I have a Twitter account (Jestloo, same as here). For the longest time I wasn't sure how I should use it. I've decided it is mostly going to be used to post WIPs and progress pics of sketches. I thought it would be neat to see how a picture evolves over time till it is completed. (Personally, I always loved seeing how a picture came to be.) There will also be finished colored pictures like here on DA and occasionally, pictures I never finish. Anyway, just letting you guys know.
I'll add notes about any noticable changes I did to each peace. But, there are other tweaks you'll have to find yourself. I'll go ahead and continue to update this journal with the first sketch though:
Added Yami(Atem's) bangs, moved his ear, and added details to both of their faces. Draped Yugi's left bangs down more over his ear. Fixed back, bottom of Yami(Atem's) spiky hair.
Moved Yami(Atem's) ear once more and altered the bang behind it to arch over instead of under. Raised both jacket collars, adjusted both shoulders, and nearly completed Yami(Atem's) jacket.
Comepletely erased and redid Yami(Atem's) body, arm and legs. Lightly filled shadows to make them easier to distinguish from my line art. Darkened lines that I felt were complete.
Added more shadowing on Yami/Atem's jacket. Made Yugi's arms, hands, and part of the Millennium Puzzle. Also thickened his neck and added his collar bones.
Added Yugi's legs, made his irises larger, and finished their hair. Also added many details and minor tweaks, including lowering bangs on Yugi's forehead, enlarging the Millennium Puzzle, adding shadows, and wrinkles. This is the final WIP.
Finished the chain on the Millennium Puzzle, erased all of Yami/Atem's intersecting lines behind Yugi, shaded in all black colors, and darkened the lines.
All done!! I hope you guys enjoyed the process! Don't know about you, but I thought it was neat to see the sketch evolve into a finished work. Not sure if I'll do this again, at least not for every piece. What do you guys think? Would you like to see more of these progress journals in the future? They'd probably only be for big sketches like this one.Stamps: Credits:
