Ray - the wannabe gangsta by oomizuao Ray - the wannabe gangsta by oomizuao
He IS a wannabe-gangsta'.. x3

I was listening to (omg) Jay-Z's "Empire state of mind", which, I have to admit, is a pretty cool song. And it kind of reminded me of my character Ray. I imagine this to be the kind of music he'd listen to..
I like Ray. He's so silly ^w^ and cool. Even though he's all "talkin' like 'dis, dawg!" trying to be "gangstah 'n shizz.." x)



drawn on pretty thick and rough (and cheap) paper. I had this unopened sketchpad lying around, and I was surprised to find the paper was great to draw on even though it's probably some cheap-ass sketchpad. I'm gonna buy some more of 'em! <3 I like how rough the paper made the lines appear. Makes it look like this drawing was done in 5 minutes and not 20.


aw well..


art and character (C) Elise M. Syvertsen / oomizuao 2010

I don't really like to draw on thick paper... all my lines get really smudged~ So it ruins the entire drawing when I'm supposed to shade it. :c
However, I've started to look for some tricks to avoid that. I will not use a pen, because I really prefer pencils. :XD:
But I really like this. The lines because awesome as well~ And your lineart is so clean! :meow:

Should be listening to 'Murder to Excellence' by Jay-Z & Kanye lol

This was done really well. The detail is pretty sharp and you did a good job working the fade in the background.
