Eri - Scrapped by WarrenLouw Eri - Scrapped by WarrenLouw
Eri (Scrapped) (2007)

She ended up giving me far too much hell, working with old pencils which I only started colouring months after. This was at a stage where I hadnt settled into my style just yet, so after having spent many weeks, over months colouring her, I realized that there was far too much wrong with the penciling (proportioning, weight balancing and pose) which ended up severely bothering me. I spent ages performing many operations to try and rescue her here, but in the end, couldnt and realized it would be better to start over...

I wanted to create a style with her that would be smooth flowing with me, and wouldnt take ages, so this wasnt it. The dude running AWX was much happier with the newer Eri I ended up finishing anyway.

Thought Id also share some of the extra accessory design work I did.
Enjoy!

• Pencils and colours created in Photoshop CS

I really think this one is more energetic looking (from her facial expression) than the one they accepted. Then again this business is client oriented anyway :D

Yea they run real well. I asked because all your artwork is crystal clear. So I knew the graphics card your working on had to be pushing out some power. Once again your work is top notch. Are you contracted to any art companies?

Really awesome gallery!!
Great to see I happened to stumble on the character artist for AWX.
I have one of the limited edition member cards with the dark haired version with light blue/white bikini type top. (it is a cropped very close portrait)
Your images are awesome!!
What do you do full time? do you work on a wacom full time, or you just use for parttime commisioned works?
Anyway! Looking forward to getting the next card :)
Great work!
Keep it up!!

Wow, you certainly put a lot of attention into details, like designing her jewellery. I guess I don't have the patience for that. ^^; The colours are really bright and dynamic. I love the shading on her skin. ^^
