Prussia - Red by KanaScott Prussia - Red by KanaScott
OKAY SO I'M TOTALLY REALLY RIDICULOUSLY PROUD OF THIS.

Ahem.

Chiaroscurochiaroscurochiaroscurochiaroscuro. Nomnom. Black marker and glorious red marker working in happy, happy union with me thinking about East Germany behind the Berlin Wall. Yes indeed, the scarf is a symbol, both in colour and what it is, of Russia's occupation. That thing was amazing.

I thought about applying lyrics to it, but realised I wanted to leave it open as to the overall interpretation. Gilbert, you tragic bastard. ;____;

Totally works as a wallpaper, if a little bit of a depressing one. The file is 1024 wide, 1280 in Download, 1600 here, and looks fine with black letterboxing in squarish aspect ratios like mine. x3

Great artwork! (Especially the motive, I wish I would see more like this...) 
(((Wow, I don't thought it was drew with traditional media..., so clean!)))

Thank you very much! :3 Of course it was cleaned up a little with photoshop to make the blacks all black and the whites all white, as well as a couple of wibbly bits, but using markers for the red definitely made it look cleaner. It still looks nice in person!

What did you use to do this? Markers? Pens?
Reply
:iconkanascott:
KanaScott Featured By Owner Dec 30, 2013
Yep, both c: Red marker for the red bits, combination of black liner pens and probably something thicker to fill in the solid back areas. Obviously, it's been cleaned up in photoshop, but the original still looks fairly snazzy, considering its age! :3

I was going for 1961 (technically 1975 for the most soul-destroying and most commonly seen iteration of the wall) to 1989. x3 But I agree with the sentiment. D:

That is absolutely beautiful! :wow: Seriously, all your black and white stuff is stunning, but this has to be the best.

First of all, I just wanna say how perfect the scarf looks! All the folds, and shadows are awesome. Love the detail on the bootlaces, too. Also also, very nice work on the folds in the clothes. ^^

I'm so jealous of you. :3

Heyy thanks :3 I'm really glad you like it that much - it's my favourite so far, too. And particularly the scarf, funnily enough! Black shadows on bright red is far too much fun.
Thanks again, and don't be jealous, just buy a huge black marker. xP Not the ones in the letraset range in the SU shop, they look green. |D

I may well get myself some markers - you've already inspired me to order some chalks. x3
You've also got me cel-shading stuff. xD Not black-and-white like these, though. :P Nowhere near as awesome, either.

Awesome, look forward to seeing the results! :3 (And I totally blag cel-shading. It scares me, it's either Right or Wrong. xDD)

to quote myself: "why are there pringles flying through the air?"

great artwork though :D I stand by all my confused and deluded comments during that PCS lecture.

Those pesky pringles. :lol: Don't you know flying pringles are a Terrible Omen of Death? Gawd.

Anyway, thanks xDDD
