61. Crash by Shinerai 61. Crash by Shinerai
Here's a commission for ~PurpleKirin of their character named Crash. I got to exercise quite a bit of artistic freedom with this one too, so I hope I did him justice c: this one is also in ballpoint, as opposed to the micron.

Crash :iconpurplekirin:
Art :iconshinerai: my face.

Greatly done, Shinerai! I just looked to this character for a few seconds, and just have a crush on it :dalove:
Combining feathered wings and mane/crest fur, give a nice result. The pose you chose enhanced the vividness of Crash.
Looks like a dragon-wolf beast, a kind of embodiment of the perfection ^ ^
I'm a great (though recent), fan of your work Shinerai. Keep on the good work!

Thank you very much for your compliments! Though the design does not belong to me, I definitely admire it as well :D And they were pretty much described to me by the commissioner as "wolf dragons", essentially, so I'm glad I was able to convey that. Thank you for your comments cx I'm honored that you are a fan of my art

What is micron? Also, how do you get your lines so nice and smooth? Do you use a certain program?

A Sakura Micron is a pen that you can get at any arts and crafts store C: For this, I used a Zebra F301 for my lineart. This is a type of ballpoint pen you can get anywhere like Walmart.

Awesome, I love using ballpoint! Though I tend to get all crazy with the shading when I use it.

Amazing as always. I'm currently going into paroxysms of envy of your anatomy and posing skills. And those wings! XD I really like this one, can you tell?

Hehe, thank you so much! I tend to go crazy on ballpoint with shading too, unless I put my mind to the fact that it should only be lineart, haha.

Gahh I'm trying to find the right words to say about this and it's failing me lol. I hate to be "that guy" who is only commenting on my commissioned piece but this account is so dead and I'm never on dA :C
So I just wanna say, Shin, you are an amazing artist, one of the best I've ever seen, you are one of my absolute biggest personal idols (and I can't wait to get my new account up so I can actually follow your work again)
Seriously, when I saw this I just couldn't keep my eyes off it. This character means a ridiculous lot to me, even if it sounds silly, but I have never made a ref for him the past 4-5 years I've been drawing him but when I look at him here I just, bah, he's perfect. Seeing him in your style just stirs things in my heart c,:
So thank you Shin for the opportunity to commission you, and for just being you and continuing to inspire. Seriously. I can't form words to express that enough. :heart:

Are there any major differences in using ballpoint compared to micron?
Reply
:iconshinerai:
Shinerai Featured By Owner Jun 15, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
The biggest difference is that microns are waterproof and ballpoint is not. So if you plan on traditionally coloring the lineart, I wouldn't recommend doing it in ballpoint. It'll smear really bad. I do tend to go over my watercolor art with a ballpoint when I'm done, and I think that usage is fine. Other than that, the handling isn't too different. You can erase a sketch out from under ballpoint lines just as easy as you can micron.

The main different is in how the ink reacts to paper. With the ballpoint pen, there is a small amount of mercy xD you can actually make light strokes with the ballpoint, or fade your lines out a little bit, or hold the pen in place without it continuously pumping ink into the paper. With the micron, either the pen is on the paper or it is not. I'd compare it to lining something digitally, and with the micron you have no pen pressure whereas you do with the ballpoint.

The main con to the ballpoint is that it tends to make ink blots while you're drawing. I've found that the best ballpoints to use for inking are the Pentel R.S.V.P, or the Zebra F301. The zebra is a little more expensive, but it is worth it and you can buy refills. I've found that these pens lay the ink down in a finer line and blot less.

The blotting occurs while, as you're drawing, the ink builds up around the ball and once the drop gets big enough or you turn your pen, it blots out onto your paper. To avoid this, I tend to have a piece of scratch paper and occasionally, I will roll the pen across this paper to deposit the ink, so I don't have to worry about it getting on my art.

Here is an oldish drawing that I drew and shaded in ballpoint. I deposited the ink blots in the corner (bad taste but it shows the example [link] ).

I love ballpoints :D
