Puss in Boots by TixieLix Puss in Boots by TixieLix
Going traditional again for a change. This isn't a copy of a still from the movie, but I did base the pose on similar references and I've kept his appearance the same because I really liked his design ^^

I liked him in Shrek 2, but I thought the Puss in Boots movie was a bit meh... it was still enjoyable, but I felt it was lacking a lot in depth. Love the character regardless - I'm a sucker for cute kittehs XD Oh! Antonio Banderas is just perfect as his voice actor!

Did this fairly quickly so there are parts where I could've blended the colours a bit better :P I used a pacer to lightly draw up the linework, and coloured with Faber Castel + some generic brand pencils that I had from ages ago. Wish I could take better pictures when it comes to recording my traditional works...

Nice job! Hopefully the sequel's not cancelled! If DreamWorks has cancelled it, I shall fart in their general direction! :XD:

I guess everybody loves Shrek, huh Tixie?

I'm not surprised you did so well with this. This is one of your best pictures so far, nice work!

And I agree with you about Banderas being perfect for the voice of this character. The good thing was that since Banderas is bilingual, he had no trouble playing the part in both the English version and the Spanish version. Cameron Diaz and that Meyers guy should have took the time to learn Spanish for goodness sakes! XD

Thanks! Glad you think so ^^

I wish he would do a Spanish and/or English version of this Vega theme [link] - with his Spanish accent and gorgeous singing voice, he'd be perfect for it too!

You're welcome! And why wouldn't I think so? You're a talented gal who always works hard on her art and it shows.

Yeah I agree, that'd be great. I couldn't hear the whole thing (load issues) but it is a neat version as it is now. I think it's kind of a long shot that Banderas would ever do something like that though...

Nice kitty, hehehe. :aww: To make pictures better you need a better lighting. Always take them in a daytime, by the window or - even better - outside. If you have a sunny day, that's perfect, if cloudy - still fine, you can always adjust it digitally later. When I didn't have a scanner, I took pictures of my drawings with my phone camera. Sometimes I needed a few retakes, but in the end it all turned out OK. Just like I said, lighting is important. Electric light changes the color and looks very uneven, so don't do it in the evening by your desk lamp. :D

Oh thanks for the tips! I figured my photos aren't great because I was doing exactly everything you said not to there XD ooops... That's why the paper colour always look blotchy, plus all the other problems I'm having :P

Oh gosh! Puss in Boots is my fave Shrek character! And I also love Banderas too!
You're really good with traditional art as well as digital. =D

The camera gives it a great tint to the picture.
