Making of 'Black Lightning'

Hello everybody 。 ヽ(*・ω・)ノ

It's been a long time since I made my last blog entry 。 Now it's finally time for a new one! I decided to write my blog in English from now on! I hope my English skills are not too bad 。 o(╥﹏╥)o
I'll do my best!

Some days ago I worked on a redesign of my original character 'Black Lightning' 。

Black Lightning is a cyborg-cat with electric power 。 I created her when I was around 16 years old 。 At that time she looked like this:

Back then she was an android, but I decided to change her into a cyborg-cat, so I can create more personalitiy on her look and character 。 I replaced the huge claws with motorcycle tires and screws 。 They're perfect for her element and I think they make her design look more special 。 (●´∀`●)

Now I'll show you step by step how I worked on this picture 。 It was hard work and it took a long time, but I had lots of fun while working on this piece 。

First step: Drawing a rough sketch 。
Second step: Working out the details 。
Third step: Inking the lines with black ink 。
Fourth step: Starting colouring with the palest tone of each colour on the picture 。
Fifth step: Adding the shadows 。
Sixth step: Drawing the background 。
Seventh step: Adding light reflection with opaque white (if necessary) 。

How I coloured the motorcycle tires:

Drawing the background and adding the light reflection:

Done 。 (⌒▽⌒)ノ♥

I hope you liked my little making of and my character Black Lightning 。  (〃 ̄ω ̄〃ゞ
By the way!!! I'm only working with traditional media, which includes ink, copic marker, coloured pencils and sometimes watercolours.

See you
