Rikku by WarrenLouw Rikku by WarrenLouw
Rikku (2003)

Heres one last artwork from way back in the highschool days. So heres a lil story about this artwork... I was working on Rikku during class since we had some free time, and whenever theres free time there just have to be lunatics running around screaming... It ended up that the one girl had the bright idea of throwing water at someone who was right next to me... yup, the artwork was soaked, and Rikku was almost finished. I was so pissed like you couldnt believe! I crapped her out in a fit of rage, but she apologized like crazy, so I forgave her.

So what you see now is Rikku completely redone over from scratch. I had to tell myself that I wasnt exactly just redoing her, but I was redoing her and making sure she ended up looking a lot better than what she 1st did.

Anyway, well thats it on the old stuff for a lil while. Hope you guys enjoyed!

• Blue and B pencils on A4 paper.

yes i can literally relate to this piece too..I was a crazy square fanatic myself back then and all it's twists and turns.. >.< good thing you deviated from that and established your own, I could personally say that Nomura is a pretty good stepping stone. :) Keep it up!!

Hey Warren! Remember me?

I like to show you my last lady, the "Angel of Independence" of Mexico, in my style: [link]
I'd like to know your opinion, because I'm an amateur with the Wacom Tablet, and I really want to grow up!.

Yours
Jonathan

P.S. Beautiful lineart and shadows, as always!

Good old highschool days!
If you'd matriculated in 2003, then that makes you almost 7yrs my senior. I hope that, in 7years, I'll be able to compete with the present you! :D *laughs*
