MTT Banner Contest Entry by IrisHime MTT Banner Contest Entry by IrisHime
My entry for the banner contest currently going on over at #ClubMTT.

Even though there are already quite a few cute and creative entries, I figured that I'd enter just the same - I want just one more MTT (just one), so frankly I'll be happy if I place at all. ; 3;

But over all, I can say that I'm really quite proud of the end result. It was definitely different drawing Mari (*annicron's main MTT, and the group mascot); I was very acutely aware that it was Mari while I was drawing him, and I tried to catch all of his distinct features as best I could. His markings are actually really hard to draw. D:

The whole thing actually came together faster than I had thought that it would - it only took two days to sketch & ink, and then a third day to colour. Frankly I am amazed that I finished this on time. Usually I am racing to meet deadlines, but this time I get to kick back for a whole extra day.

Welp, guess that's all. Will be uploading a bigger resolution image of just Mari (by himself) because I really like how he came out, and this image is already shrunk to size (710 x 550 pixels)

Thank you for saying so, Asnea! : D

Ahaha, well it's basically about these dragon-looking aliens see, that came to earth in the future and now the earth is all polluted and stuff. The end. lol or that's pretty much the premise surrounding these guys. There's also some kind of war going on or something. But your characters don't have to be involved. It's just a lot of fun.

Thanks hon!!

Thank you very much! Really, I'm flattered. ; u ;
Looking back on past illustrations of MTT, I think that I am improving! ...slowly.

But hey, slow and steady wins the race.

that is so totally a lie :P
You're quiet welcome :D
and it does seem as though you've improved quiet a bit, not that you weren't amazing in the first place, but still lD

slow is the way to go :,D

IrisHime Featured By Owner Dec 10, 2012  Student Digital Artist
totally the furthest thing from a lie
Ha ha, thanks! ; u ; guh that really means a lot to me that other people can see I've improved as well.

8'D agreed. Although faster progress would be nice, I'd rather slow than none at all.

and i'm glad that it at least means something or else... you wouldn't get anywhere (art wise) :o

I find it so hard just to get down a good sketch so faster progress is what most of us want :,D
