Manga//Slaps by 13th-Letter Manga//Slaps by 13th-Letter
This is my rendition of an anime girl.

I had the concept of a slightly cyberpunk club/bar/pub with a hint of 50's diner elements, but in a future where the "street" scene is still very much active. I thought it'd be pretty cool to have the juxtaposition of stickers and colors in the background against the futuristic sleekness of the couch and the cute girl.

Placing those stickers was just as calculated as placing them in real life!

Colors coming SOON!
(I might make the colored version a print if it comes out decent enough, more info on that later!)

Yes the stickers are bada$$. I recognize several brands. I don't know many artists that are streetwear enthusiasts. It's either one or the other.  I also like the overall concept. I'm all for the urban future. I'll be sure to add you on the other sites.

Thank you! Nice, I'm glad they were recognizable enough. I suppose it's a weird combination being into art and fashion / streetwear lol, but I dig it. I view them both as art forms. I'm all for it too. I was hoping we'd all be more advanced by now, actually!

Thank you, I appreciate that. Let me know when you do so I can take a look also.

The 2 are most definitely one in the same. I've noticed streetwear designers are into art, but usually not the case the other way around. Understandable, but it's best to broaden the horizon which in case i did with streetwear. yeah everyone expected robots and flying cars, lol.
I have one thing that i'm kind of still working on. My stuff is much for fashion focused even if it's for an OC. This is the only one i've colored. Came out weirder than I thought but i'm experimenting right now. I hope to catch up with the other characters sooner or later:

HEY HEY! Sorry to leave you hanging for so long! (Let me just pick up right where we left off haha)

You have cool ideas, and it seems you're not afraid to push out of your comfort zone. Just keep pushing that, the rest will come with time. You can't "learn" creativity but you can always update your technical skills :)

No worries. I am not always able to check in on here either.

I think i'll start an idea session when i am in a place i can't draw. Just start writing down cool ideas and see if i can develop them visually. Thank you for hitting me back up.

No problem. And that's a great idea!
I have a dry erase marker board that I use to jot down ideas - much like a to to list.

This is really good! I'm glad I checked out your stuff from the forum thread. It's not currently what I can use, for my present project, but I would love to commission this sort of thing from you in the future. It's very slick and solid. To add to the litany: Are you still planning on colours?

Thank you so much! For the favorite as well. I thought it would be a bit of a stretch for your current project, but I would gladly work on something for you. I love inking, and I take my lines painstakingly serious! I feel like the scans don't do them justice sometimes haha.

I am, but I currently don't have a tablet anymore, so that may have to wait for a while, unfortunately.

HA, Thanks homes, as always, your words of support are much appreciated!
I did this one in a much smaller book, about 5 x 3 or something like that? I was, however, referencing real life stickers and THAT was a pain the the rectum to get just right.

YO B, WHY U TRYNA SEND ME HEARTS B

lol, but yeah, love is love bro-man. It wasn't too bad, the placement was all me, the sticker selection is real. There's some of my own designs mixed in there, but whatever isn't mine is a real sticker, or based on a real design. I draw so slow - my patience needs to be on point lmao!

Dude, I'm working on some color tings as we speak, but I always feel like its kicking my ass. I can do it analog style, but the digital ish gets me all confused and worked up :/ I was going to have my girl color this one, but I decided I wanted to push myself to figure it out. So here I am, trying to delve into color theory as I hobble my way through these colors. I'll send you a preview pic in a bit.

Worry not, brethren, I've already the next level in sight.

Hardy har har~! YOU MAH BWAH SON~! I SEND THEM SHITS FROM MY MAN HEART, NAH MEAN!?! Lol

But yea homes, shit is WILD kid. I always keep my inspiron in check when adding crazy detail to ish.. like "man, this Buda woulda been spending DAYS and MONTHS and shit on this single arm man.. damn, gotta keep at it!" So you keep my details building mang. GooD Sh!T

DO IT! DAMN IT MAN~! GET TO IT~! If your lineages are that legit.. son.. your colors will be BEASTOID. Can't allow it to get to you. Practice, practice, practice! Also, look into how folks do their coloring via tutorial vids. It'll give you some ideas to mess with n get comfortably familiar with some techniques. 

Oh snaps, I'm phoneless til after monday bro.. sooo Hold off on that bish. But I ams very interested in seeing what your colors will be like.. =)
