[commission]:Tosha IV

tosha brief:I have a new pic idea for you, if you have opening ^_^
I just bought a beautiful sculpture and it reminds me of Lizzy =9

I wanted to get a pic of me and Lizzy drawn in this pose (ref1 and ref2).
However, the positing of his arms should be embracing me or…whatever you think…;)
Clothing for Lizzy should match something similar to the video of his “We Got The Power.”
I would also though, like the black cloak the man is wearing in the sculpture to be on Lizzy…
In a similar fashion.

I attached a ref pic of Lizzy.  He had longer hair back then and it was blonde =)

I also attached ref pics of the sculpture.
As far as medium, I attached a few of your pics that stood out to me.

For my outfit something similar to the girl in the sculpture would work.
In my hand rather than a skull, I would like to be holding a mask.
I attached ref pics of the mask from Lizzy’s album “Master of Disguise.”

If you look at the sculpture the girl has flowers falling thru her hair…Maybe for me black rose petals??
For a background I will leave it up to you, though I would like the lyrics below somehow incorporated:

I’m the hope that you can’t find
I’m the lie that you hold inside
I’m the love you can’t confess
I’m the hate you must supress
I’m your deepest fantasy
I’m the price tag when it’s free




Lizzy Ref


MOD Mask



2.remove wing out I ‘ll decide about background more,but I think it’s maybe
black and blue rose,skeleton.:) I come up with more refine sketch,I think I have to find more reference about skeleton.It’s good that I have some reference book so it’a may useful in this piece.I’ll post more ref I found here.The style I think in this pic will be combine with nouveau ‘s Mucha art style.[It’s pity that I’ve lost mucha’s book]I think I should  find some more reference in internet.:)

4.inking with photoshop and paint tool SAI this quite take time.

more reference for outfit

Lizzy outfit

reference for background idea
I’ll making some pattern inspire Mucha style but with my own design.

5.continue inking

6.add gears,add rose thorn,add cloth detail.

7.starting to flat color.May be add frame after finish color character.

8.continue coloring.

9.add frame,rough


I feel fun with this piece a lot.:)
Thankyou Tosh for let me do.

    No worries, Meisan =) The sketch is lovely thus far.
    However, before you get too in depth, I must have forgot to tell you…

    I rather not have the wings as part of the composition.
    I am sorry for not saying something!!

    Dear Tosh,today I come with some update I think I've to find some more reference if you had any idea about cloth please feel free to tell me,because I think I'll make this pic in gothic look but combine with art nuveau Mucha style.The style of colour in this piece will be like throne of heart piece of mine,but it should be control in color scheme,overall pic should look dark but still have warm feeling.I 'll see what I can do.
