I wanted to do something in colour again. Only a small portrait, done while travelling to uni/between lectures. Another protector (of the green? of air? I should catch up with the current lore, I guess.), this time with more of an organic-being-in-armour-approach. I figured the masks might as well be fancy ceremonial visors/helmet attachments. There are some irregularities because once again, no pre-sketching. :]
But far less set-like this time. More of a 'calm before the storm'-type drawing, I suppose. (click the thumbnail or follow this link to view full drawing) This looks much better IRL, though. My scanner decided to eliminate most of the nuances of the shading, and I fear my editing killed the rest. Anyhow. Here we have another Protector of Fire, female this time. This drawing was done mostly in an attempt of re-collecting myself, thus the rather static pose. Outlines were done in ballpoint pen (although on my sketchbook paper the lines always look more line ordinary pencil), the colouring/shading was done in coloured pencil. I made an obvious perspectivic error at the farther fin of the helmet, but decided to use the 'more wrong' version because I liked it better. Comments, criticism etc are very much appreciated, just as always!

I tried to do something different, and decided that sticking to only a few colours would do the trick. In the end I used far more shades of blue and turquoise than originally intended, but it was certainly an interesting experience. ^^Look, a background.The design of the Toa was very loosely based on a character from my comics, but I doubt anyone would recognise that. Coloured pencils are great for colouring. My favourite medium. <3Comments and Criticism greatly appreciated. =)
