After redrawing this character 6 or 10 times I decided to not be so self critical and not try to use media I am bad in.. like coloring in photoshop..........
So it became kind of a spontaneous Indian ink disaster. xD  Despite the anatomical failure, weird composition and wrong use of contrast I am kind of happy with it... xD Mostly because it was a lot of fun to just blow ink all over the place. :P I wanted it to be chaotic but create some order amidst the chaos as well... I Yolo'd thi bi-- /slap

:bulletblue:Character info:
This is Aklepton, 100procent-Juul's goddess of the roaring thunder. I made this drawing for the contest she is currently hosting till March 15th. Since she was inspired by Egyptian designs I decided to break down it's geometrical form to simpler shapes and symbols. Like I said, I didn't try to put much thought in this drawing. Otherwise I would have redrawn her again and again endlessly.

:bulletblue:Materials:
*Indian ink in combination with a small size 6 brush,
*.Too Copic Multiliner Black sizes 0.3, 0.1 and 0.03,
*224 g/m2 A3 format paper BRISTOL CANSON (because of its smoothness and thickness the ink is actually black and doesn't run out unlike on rougher and thinner paper.. like printing or sketching paper.)
*Photoshop CS6 for the finishing touches.

wow, ik ben gewoon sprakeloos weet je dat *-*
zo veel kracht spreekt hieruit, en al die details zijn echt amazing *A* ik vind de pose en de compositie juist hartstikke mooi, en de achtergrond is geweldig! en het belangrijkste aan haar design, de bliksem, zit er ook in... en haar blik dan, heel mysterieus en badass, precies zoals Aklepton is ^^ en nogmaals, al die details is echt een plus!
geweldige entry, echt supergaaf en mooi en awesome!! :love: dankjewel voor het meedoen!

aww thx~! :iconaawplz: Ik heb me uitgeleefd! Ik moest haar wel een paar keer opnieuw doen omdat ik of de compositie fout had, of het gewoon lelijk werd.. Ik ben gewoon op zwart-wit overgegaan nadat photoshoppen te gruwelijk werd. xD, en inkt over papier gooien bleek ook nog eens een pretpark op zich. xD Het is daarnaast ook gewoon leuk om andere mensen hun characters te tekenen. =P Dus dank aan jou voor het creŽren van haar! Ben blij dat ik eindelijk eens een deadline gehaald heb... xD

thanks! Although I was critical at the design and composition I chose. But it didn't turn out too horrible.. Though it may appear messy. ;P But that's what I was going for... =p
