A Boy & A Girl - and some prints for sale :)

Hi all,
The awesome Jerrod Maruyama was really kind to inviting me to submit a contribution piece for the Pixar Times blog. I had this idea for something else before but I think it fit right into the topic :) I hope you like it.

My usual curiosity.. what do you think the story is about? :)

Title: A Boy and A Girl
Medium: Pencil & Digital

the original pencil drawing:


Also, some of you might already know about this but I'll mention this again.. I finally have my first prints for sale! They're limited to 25 prints and the prints will only be online until the 1st December 2010.

A big thank you goes to Imaginism Studios and Sketchoholic for hosting and producing these prints. The profit will go towards supporting the sketchoholic community and of course.. me :)

You can find the prints here. There are 7 prints in total.

Really excited about this. Hope you like them. :)

The unicorn fell from the sky, knocking off Totoro and his clown sidekick to save Barbie. It was a special mission since Woody and Buzz were on a tea appointment at the moment, and didn't know what was happening.

Very lovely illustration, your pencil work always amazes me.

Fantastic, I love all the little subtleties and the colour choice! Off to get me one of those prints ;)

I love your pencil work! The way you shade is so soft and delightful. The contrast between the boy and girl are apparent and fun. Great illustration! :)

Mike Bear said...

I really enjoy your pencil work, Charles. You consider every stroke and texture, it's really helpful in making a cohesive picture.

Thanks for your words of wisdom, as well. I really appreciate your thoughts on my topics.


Patrick Awa said...

Wow, awesome piece as always, your pencil strokes are really neat, so well controlled, yet unbound.
Love the potato head broken down regardless:)

Sorry I accidentally dropped the previous comment before finished...

Congratulations on your prints too!!!
They all look pretty and inspiring.
Hope they sell well and even more to be added(especially "Duo" that I liked)!!

I really like you use pencil for rendering and do digital paint on top of it. Do you use Color layer when you jump into digital media?

Charles Santoso said...

Pat: haha that's a great story. Thanks for sharing!

Gabby: Thanks for the constant support, Gabby.

Monstertree: Thanks a lot! I hope you like it :)

Carla C: Thanks for the visit and kind words, Carla.

Mike: Thx a lot, Mike. Really appreciate it.

Patrick: You're too kind, Patrick. Thanks for your support.

Nicholas Hong: Thanks, Nicholas. I always try new things for digital process. Still haven't locked my method yet. and yes, I use color layer when necessary. :)

I have been waiting for you to get prints :D - so of course I've already ordered one. Tough choice, but I landed on Godzilla, love giant monsters and your take on the guy. Got my eye on Flying, too, though.

Cheers, man :D
