Jellybots: Lizzie by nicholaskole Jellybots: Lizzie by nicholaskole
This is Lizzie :D
She's based off my friend, Lizzie (who, after I did one based on Jen, asked for her own :p) And I realize this has effectively opened the floodgates for anyone who wants a portrait (which wasn't my intention) but I'm trying not to design characters I don't actually believe in.

So here she is...in the current scheme of things she may even be the protagonist...a young girl who doesn't quite know who to be. She's kind of a lot of crazy energy all pent-up in a very self-conscious shell. (hence the little doodles: a) has obnoxious laugh, b) is embarrassed) The kind of girl who would decorate her suit with smiling stars, but get a little shy if you brought it up. Also, she likes llamas (not pictured).

:D

It looks so traditional.... the lines look so perfect too! How do you do it!

haha- I did it all in photoshop, from start to finish. I'm glad you like it, though! I use a pressure sensitive brush on my lines and I do them without vectorizing them so that they retain *some* of the warmth of traditional work.

Gosh... It just looks so good... you must have an awesome wacom/bamboo tablet then D: Mine won't even scratch that surface!

As for vectoring :< It doesn't look right doesn't it? It feels so straight and digital when I look at it... I want to try it...But think I will prefer my tablet as well XD

(Can't wait to see more work from you!)

mmm...I actually use a cintiq, so it's a LOT easier to draw directly onto the computer.
It's funny, because Jbots really lends itself to vector- but I kind of find the exercise of imitating the clean-line look of vector work very relaxing on some weird level. And I just prefer the warmth of the result.
I can't wait to do more work I can show! For the moment, I'm really caught up with my day job...maybe soon I'll have some time to do some work on the side :)
