Better Off When I Was On Your Side by TheAntimonyElement Better Off When I Was On Your Side by TheAntimonyElement
Wonderful boyfriend got me Copics for my birthday, and wonderful boss judge helped me get a job at NASA. This is a gift for wonderful boss judge. I'm starting my new job on Halloween, and everything is such a spin right now. I'm running on very little sleep and one meal today and I needed to finish this. 

My scanner and my camera are both refusing to cooperate, so I hope something about the energy and the color comes through here, instead of the smudgy nonsense my scanner spat back at me. There are still some weird color spots, but playing around too much with the Photoshop editing filters makes it look all sterile and gross, so I'm leaving them in in the interest of authenticity. 

I'm...really, crazy happy with this. It didn't take very long--maybe a couple of days--and it's rare for a piece to come out exactly how it looks in my head. I'm usually happy with whatever result I get, but this was just plain *fun.* It's my first real foray into Copics, and just...yum. Their reputation is well-deserved. I probably used less than a dozen colors to make the unicorns. 

The unicorns were colored entirely in Copic marker, then cut out and attached to the background. 

The foot and horn-splotches are India Ink, of course. Nothing looks quite like that. :heart: 

Love you guys. Real updates soon, I promise.

Those colours are so wonderfully vibrant, and the ink blots make for perfect magic effect clouds.

Hooray for NASA job! :clap: One step closer to being able to put "space lawyer" on your business cards?

Ohhh, thank you so much! I listened to a lot of Celtic music while I was drawing it, and I'm really happy that came through! :3
