[livejournal.com profile] sunhawk16 commissioned me to celebrate RayGunWorks' anniversary. Here we have Heero and Duo in Steampunk gear atop a cliff. What are these two up to, I wonder. I also included work-in-progress pics. I don't usually take step by step pictures of my progress, but this time I have enough to show a bit of the process. Thank you for viewing and enjoy!

Final product

And here's the WIP:

Basic sketch I showed Sunny. Once she approved, I started the lineart.

The boys are outlined. Changed Heero's arm position and outfits are finalized. Background and foreground is planned out by chunks of color. Color swatches are also placed on Duo to see how it will look together.

The boys are colored and some shading is thrown in.

Background upgrade.

More shading and tinting.

This is showing the background before the final colors. I went back to the original file and stripped away the final colors to show the basic colors, and my happy desert trees. XD

Background is tinted and blurred, Duo's clothes are colored some more, while Heero's is still plain. The previous pic showed his was colored already, cuz it wasn't an original screencap.

Outfits colored.

Borders are put up, final touches are made, signed and sent off to Sunny.

and then a day later I decided it wasn't shiny enough, added more shine and let Sunny decide which version to keep. MuahahahhaXD

She kept the shiny one,

Hope you enjoyed that. I'm currently working on that Heeroduo mermaid pic I said I was going to work on back in hmmm March?! Gwah, where had the time gone? Anyway, it's going well and we'll see how it will look in the end. Looks like there's going to be a few more things after that so...fingers crossed for more porcArt?

I'm still playing around, but here's what I have so far of the kingofthesea pic.



[livejournal.com profile] lil_1337 and I got caught up in the possibilities...So, a quick Heero sketch was made. XD Details in the comments.

The picture is stunning on its own, but seeing the creation process makes it even more amazing. It adds to the appreciation I have for all that you do. There are so many little touches that make it special.

Oh my, that bottom picture looks pretty! I love the colors. It looks neat paired with the one above it because the blue in the sky mirrors the blue in the sea. :-)

Thank you Sharon! I'm always excited to work on the little touches, sometimes needing myself to hold on for a bit and get all the other stuff done first. XD

And you're right...first a whole lot of land and sky and then everything's water. These boys sure has seen places. :)

Those are both gorgeous! I was picturing the steampunk one as a kind of prelude to Journey To The Center of The Earth type story. That or a search for a lost civilization of some kind.

Ooooh! Sounds great! Duo is holding a compass. The places they can go. *0*

I bet that Heero has the leather bound journal of a famous explorer and eccentric in one of the pockets of his coat.

He had come across it by accident. Cracked leather and swollen pages crushed under an out of date encyclopedia in a bin full of old books for sale, for any amount. The new librarian had been instructed to empty some shelves to make room for new inventory. It was the golden gilded edges of its pages that got Heero to pick it up. It was the smile of the new librarian, "Call me Duo, I'll be over there if you need anything", that got him to stick around long enough to open the book and look through it.

At least, that's one of the ways it could have started. XD

I like it! Though, I was envisioning something more like...

Duo patted his coat to make sure the journal was still there. He'd found it amongst his Uncle Howard's things when he was looking for a clue for where the eccentric explorer had disappeared to. He'd had been going on and on for years about a lost civilization that could be found in the middle of the Earth. Duo had always thought it was just a pipe dream - maybe even a delusion - harmless enough, but nothing would ever come of it. That was until Uncle Howard went off exploring one day and never came back.

Howard had been there for Duo and now it was time for Duo to return the favor. Thankfully he not only had the journal, but Howard's assistant, Heero Yuy, had agreed to go along on the quest. Duo had a feeling he was going to need all the help he could get if he was going to rescue Uncle Howard. It didn't hurt that Heero was amazing smart as well as being damn easy on the eyes.

Later, when Uncle Howard was home safely Duo might consider taking a gander at Heero, but right now he had an epic adventure to plan for.

Oooooh! I love it. Now it's not just aimless wandering but there's something at stake and oh the things that can happen during this adventure. *0* Such possibilities! And Heero? What are his motives for going along with Duo in this rescue mission? Is it really as simple as lending his help to rescue Howard?

Heero stared at the watch in his hand as a long held promise surfaced in his mind. They had little time to waste as it is. Still, he closed his eyes, took a deep breath, and remembered.

Oh, man that is perfect!

It was his job, his life's mission to protect his people from discovery. Howard had been getting too close! Fortunately, no one else believed him, that made Heero's task so much easier. That was until Howard went missing. Now his nephew was determined to find him and bring him back.

Heero liked Howard, appreciated the old man's sharp mind and reasoning skills. Under other conditions he would have considered him a friend. Did consider him a friend or as much as Heero could allow him to be. He hoped that Howard wasn't hurt or dead, just lost. He feared that Howard had actually stumbled onto the way to the lost city and was being held there. That's why he'd agreed to help Duo.

That's not the only reason his heart whispered to him, but he shook it off, frowning. His personal feelings were irrelevant. What mattered was the well being of his people.

*gasp!* Yes! I was wondering how Heero became Howard's assistant. So he was there to make sure Howard didn't succeed? ButBut he is too good, that Howard! And now Duo. So will he mislead Duo too? How long can he do that, when he'll come to know soon how determined Duo was to find his uncle? And how will Duo react when he finds out why Heero was in their lives to begin with? /.\

Oh! Did Howard go alone? What if he was taken because he knew so much? If Heero's clan knew Howard was getting close...who else thought his knowledge could prove useful in finding the lost city?

So many questions that remain unanswered. I think I'm going to copy this whole thread into a document because I kind of want to write this fic now.

Right? They have a goal, which is to find Howard and a guide, the journal. But what will happen inbetween? Who will they meet? How will this unfold? XD

wahhhhhh~ somehow....I want to see what happens too. XD

I have everything in my google docs and I am playing with ideas. It's been a while since I've written something longer that is Heero and Duo focused.

It might be a while, I'm at almost a thousand words already and I haven't even finished the first scene.

Ohwow! I thought it would just be there for future ficcing, but it's actually being written right now? Eee! *throws confetti*
