Rosie or ROSE has been a character loooooooooooooong time in the making.. I cant exactly remember when i first started drawing her, but she's pretty much stayed the same. I know its been over a decade with having her around in my thoughts, she's very dear to me because she is so different then my other characters. She usually disappears for years at a time, then pops in again to make sure i didn't forget our ties. sorry rosie X0
Seems like a really interesting character... Love how you drew her hair especially.
*also - im pretty sure i stole her legs from that Kill Bill chick, Uma. . . lol
Shankies! I get really upset about hair.... it usually ends up looking like retro sailor moon when she's 50miles away from camera............ lol. I try real hard to take tips from my favorite art (on hair and textures on the skin) from Trigun Maximum manga. Excellent thick lines that i drool over ........ *proceeds to drool* of course im not there yet- but awesome of you to pick up on those little things that i swear everyone usually over looks heh ^^
haha "retro sailor moon" thats not a bad thing btw. Sailor moon is coolness. (( did you hear about the new Sailor Moon Anime by chance? I'm not sure I'm into it, I love the look of the older one, but I'll def watch it when it comes out ))
Oh I definitely notice linework. I just may not always talk about that in my comments for artists. But I take lots of things into consideration when I examine a piece of artwork. Though I usually post my initial reaction because I feel it's better to give that sort of information out too. Like whatever goes through my head, or what feelings come to me first, I usually post that.
ANYWAY... lol using other mangas/anime as reference is GOOD. Idk why people look down on using references of other art. -.- Like to get to your ideal, you've got to practice drawing whatever you admire.
*nearly choked on gum* that icon is priceless! XDDD ok ok ok - lol. Rosie or ROSE stands for..........hmm, forget heh. (It'll come to me later) see those glowing marks on her knees and elbows - those be so she can fly around if need be. (but she doesn't know that in the beginning). I had done a comic of her AGES ago with her having young simple features and maybe that's why you don't recognize her. She comes across this boy passed out in the alley on her way back from work and takes him in. at first it's like 'woah, what an odd coincidence' that these 2 weirdos would meet ~ but he was actually on his way to her and whatever had happened, made him fall out ... yes, lol.
