She-Mask OC: Nerissa Banderas Concept by MugenKeiji She-Mask OC: Nerissa Banderas Concept by MugenKeiji

Character by D.M.G
The Mask Dark Horse Comics, New Line Cinema


Ummm... how to put this? This isn't a commission :blush:

About say -- 4 months ago, I put aside some possible game/commission monies and picked up a Wacom Bamboo Tablet for reasons of curiosity. It's true I haven't been much a stranger to drawing, but I'm on and off about it and often get frustrated with cleaning up scanned artwork. That all said and done, tablet has gotten a bit more output from me for sharing with some of my peers and it's been quite handy for a couple of other things. I will say this though: replacing nibs are a bitch. Anyway, my fascination with the tablet has superceded my desire to color for a bit, but things'll be back on track eventually.

The character was based on an old paper sketch I care not to share for errors more glaring than what you'll find here and originally the design was going to be brunette and European but she got a race lift to a Middle-Eastern (likely Lebanese, secular as hell though)/Spanish mix for the hell of it. Peers of mine *cough* :iconany-other: *cough* suggested a backstory or some kind of character bio but I kind of went on a whim with her. I'd likely say she'd take on some kind of liberal position like being an activist or an opinionated teacher, where I come from those types are something I see a lot really. -- tend to default on putting a majority of female Mask wearers in a sexy or revealing dress, so disregard my addiction to author appeal that fails to convey any aspect of that *crickets chirp*

Fake bg aside, a lot of red is recurring in her design. Ummm... yeah.
*hides in a corner*

I've drawn for my account before, just nothing Mask based has ever gotten on Deviantart. Space or scuba stuff may follow, since I like using my tablet a bit more than trying to clean up scans.

Though technically, Triple Play was loosely based on my designs.

I'm just saying that it's actually been a while since you posted anything, be it original or a coloring of somebody else's work.  You haven't had a lot of activity over the past year or so, in my opinion.

2013 was spent finding myself so to speak. I've been meaning to draw stuff for the longest time but I wanted the uploading part to be painless as possible.

Still take pride in how I color, part of it's the struggle/pressure to learn new things along the way for even one such as myself is weighted with doubt and fear of being seen as a phony -- a ruggedly handsome, kinky, jerk-ass phony. Not to mention whether or not I should mingle more with a certain community.

Hedgehog dilemma's a bitch and a half with interest on my part.

This is great in a lot of ways--lots of tight line control, nice use of color (the small uses of blue against all the warm tones works well), a good asymmetrical design without going overboard, and the little touches (the highlights on the jewelry, the tiny mask of loki clasp on the purse, the gold pupils)--it just works very well. 

Appreciate you uploading this, it's a great picture. :thumbsup:

Most of my understanding of tones comes from my coloring experience/experimentation if not a few fundamentals courses I took in community college -- granted I tend to wing it for the sake of time and I was PRE-TTY hammered when getting this shaded too @_@

The design is fairly basic in some aspects, being a small update to an old sketch and if I were to draw the character again I'd probably add or change some things like making her anklet a gold snake instead of recycling Tifa's bracelet (this again, came from the sketch).

All in all, it took a bit to finish up what with a few gaps of leaving it alone and practicing hands but I had fun topping it off during Saturday.

Thanks for the push, good sir. :)
