Doctor and Elly acrylics commission by sigeel Doctor and Elly acrylics commission by sigeel
i stopped doing commissions for awhile now so i could focus on making strips.
This one however, i couldn't resist

I worked on it for 3 days on and off i guess alongside other things. and i had a ton of fun. its good to take a break from digital work and do something traditionally for once in awhile.

it looks better seeing it live, its a shame scanner can never capture its true colors.

:bulletred: work in progress pics are here: :bulletred:

this is awesome! I myself have trouble with acrylics, maybe they just get a bit gloppy.

it's all a matter of practice like in anything else, but also a matter of preference.

I for one adore gouache and acrylics, but could never force myself to work with watercolors, i just don't have the patience for them.

ah yes, that's true. I have been doing a lot with watercolors lately, so going back to acrylics when I haven't used them since Christmas is a bit of a jump

its always nice to try out new things, but if acrylics are not your thing then you can work in a technique that you like better, and develop and learn from a technique that suits you best.
Art is not limited to just one technique :)

I think I'll practice some more acrylics. I used to do it a lot so I have tons of canvases. Thank you for the tips!

Simply wow! Your use of traditional media is really amazing! All the shading and highlights are perfect, and their expressions are superb. I really like the dynamic between these two characters, and it is rather nice to see her not terrified of him! Also, the little can/vial of mace was a clever addition. Clearly she doesn't go anywhere without it! :)

The band is just starting to play, as the lights on stage come up, to reveal Elly and the Doc getting ready to clap along to the beat, and sing their version of Sonny and Cher's "I Got You Babe" - or maybe not... :clap:

Vlad looks like he's enjoying seeing Elly all dolled in a way with a latex gloves, a lab coats, eye glasses, and well perhaps seeing a woman dressed like this is attractive to him.

heh he likes to see her enjoying her work^^ from what you can tell elly is in these present strips freaked out by alot of factors, but there will come a time when she will get used to all those things. ...that is IF she gets the job :B

Naturally I think she will become more confident in her abilities and in the work she'll be doing with Vlad. Still there is an IF about the job well it'll take considerable feats to persuade Vlad of her skill set. Also for amends to me made about the Blood Stain hiccup.
