120512 cutouts by bara-chan 120512 cutouts by bara-chan
recently, after reorganizing my workspace a bit, i decided it was time for some kind of new art for my i made some cardboard cutouts of my RO archbishop and her mechanic husband. each one is just under 11" tall.

progress shots, from left to right:
1) rough sketch
2) inked with blue and sepia ink, laying some marker coloring down on top of colored pencil details
3) more coloring
4) colors are done
5) adding darker outlines, line weights, and background areas
6) a bit of white colored pencil detail

after all of that, i cut each one out with scissors and a box cutter (i don't have a decent utility knife lol Q_Q,) went around the cut edges with a brown marker, backed them with cardstock and added some corrugated cardboard stands.

it all took a lot longer than i originally planned, due to not having...almost any of the marker shades i really wanted; i had to do a lot of improvising. but my desk is much cuter now, so it's all good ♥


drawn with 2B+HB pencils on 11x14" vellum bristol
inked with copic multiliner SPs and a sharpie
colored with prismacolor colored pencils, prismacolor markers, and copics

Oh em gee! These are just too cute for words! Priest class sprites were always my favorite(RIP Memoru QQ)! Though my ideal RO hubby was either a Sin or an Archer. XD Blacksmiths are the sechs too though. <3

I bet a buttload of people would jump for it if you offered cardboard cutout commissions.
