Bad Morning- Tyler by ARTabstraction Bad Morning- Tyler by ARTabstraction
Fanart of :iconzombiesmile:'s character Tyler!
It ended up looking almost nothing like him....
*weeps*
I'm just... uploading it here... trying to be less critical of myself... Yes it isn't perfect, but it isn't bad!
... *headdesk*
SORRY FOR MESSING UP TYLER, MIKI!!! D:

The outline is horrible because it was initially only going to be a quick sketch of Tyler... and then I started to like it... so I overworked it (like I always do).
I NEED TO STOP DOING THAT!

But regardless of whether I like the end result, it was hella fun to draw! Tyler's an awesome character, and it was fun trying to get his personality in there!

PS. You can't see it, but the poster behind his head says "Crash and Burn", which is the title of the manga Tyler is from!

Programs used: Photoshop for base colors and composition- Sai for everything else.
Time: ... way longer than I intended lol. (Like a week and a half, but I only worked on it for about two or three days.)
Tyler belongs to :iconzombiesmile:
Crash'n'Burn Mikiko Ponczeck/Tokyopop

Looks great! I love how you conveyed his personality, I don't know this manga, but I may have to look into it. :)

The artist is Mikiko Ponczeck (Omg I spelled that right without even looking!!) She's German. And Crash and Burn is sadly not released in English yet. T_T

Hmm, I don't really know the character, so I can't say in fairness how well you represented him. But I really can say that this still looks pretty awesome, and I don't think you could have outright messed it up. :) It looks like it came out well even at full size, and you worked in a good amount of detail.

Aww thanks! What do you think of the shading? I was trying out a softer slightly more realistic style of shading to see how it works. Whaddaya think? XD

I like it. :) It really is quite soft, I have no idea how to pull that off with such detail. O.o But it seems blended well with the lighting too. You must have practiced that for a while.

Hahah yup I've been practicing LOL. But it requires really good knowledge of musculature, so I'm not good with doing it full-body yet.
Thanks! I'm really glad it looks good!!!

I imagine you have been at it a while, and knowing just how to pull it off with muscle structure does sound complicated. If you keep at it I'm sure you'll get even better.
And you're welcome. :)

Haha Oh your very welcome ^^ It looks just like him! (I'm assuming he's not a morning person.)

We all love Tyler. :lmao: The way I see it, he sure loves to "smile" upside down a lot XD

I'm sure we met a Tyler like in all our lives. I did. He's one of my very best friends and he's only nice to me out of my group of friends and very over protective of me. He's like a older brother figure for me. ^^

But his temper...:iconscaredplz: It used to scare me before but now I usually have to be the one to calm him down. XD

LOL. That's sweet that you've got a Tyler of your own! LOL. Always thought that'd be cool! Seems like a pretty cute adorable really cliche manga plot hahah. Not implying anything! But that sounds like a really sweet relationship! It's nice that he's got you to even him out. :)

Hahaha Oh no worries. People from high school flat out said they "shipped" us since despite him being a gothish/punk type (I assume he's punk XD) and I am rather girly/goody goody girl who studies alot and happy go lucky all the time (people get surprised I'm into a few punk bands but I'm more of a pop punk and indie bands since because I don't dress in a "punk" way. I just laugh and go the fashion style isn't really me but I enjoy the music and very open to several genres of rock and punk music. XD

We used to laugh at the fact people wanted us to go out. We were like "No." XD

Anyway, we met in the weirdest way. I used to send notes to my goth friends and she at the time had a crush on my "Tyler like" friend. I send her a note drawing him in "chibi" form as a bunny with a pissed off expression as a joke. So I guess in her French class, she dropped the note and he picked it up since he took French with her. He saw his name was on it and then saw my drawing.

He asked who drew this and she panicked and said it was me. He told me he remembered me from a previous year we had class together and remember me as "the really nice girl with brown glasses glued who was glued to the sketchbook. " XD

So then my friend warned me and I was like "AHHH!!! I'm gonna die! DX" He approaches me at lunch and starts to laughing. I was like O_O and then he told me he loved the picture. We started exchanging funny notes and then we just became good friends.

Ever since then we have been really good friends. We always cared for each other like siblings since we always argue about everything and or tease each other. But sometimes when he gets ragingly pissed at someone, I used to get scared and he would stop and tell me he's sorry I had to see that.

Now I get pissed at him for making a scene and he will sulk like a puppy. XD

That's just so cute!!! Really interesting dynamic to have! It's always sweet to see two people being really close friends like that. Read something on tumblr the other day. It said "you know you're really close friends when people keep asking if you're dating". And you know, it's true! XD

Sorry for my massive typos/grammer errors. I was typing too fast and was re-reading it and I was like "I sound like an idiot!" XD

Haha That's pretty much how we roll. Hahaha Exactly! I mean all the girls he likes are way different from my personality (He's into tough girls who show nothing but confidence XD) and all the guys I have liked...well I had two crushes in my life and well they were different from one another and way different from my "tyler" like friend. My dream guy is "SCOTT!" like character. It's so hard to find a nice and cheery guy like that in Southern California...Land of jerks.

But people still ship us. Our own group of friends have a bet with one another when are we gonna go out or when who will ask who out. Everyone thinks he will ask me out. My tyler like friend, blushes, and cusses/yells them out and tells them our friendship is nothing like that. I just laugh and tease him too by saying "Yeah...When ARE you gonna ask me out? Poor me. I'm waiting here like a sitting duck, suffering with a broken heart. You horrid man, you! " He usually gives me a glare cause he knows I'm joking and enjoys his misery. XD

Heheheheh. That's even cuter... dang! You're giving me terrific fodder for comics here! XD
LOL. You should put your bets on the "never" pot then! He sounds like a sweetie inside (deep, DEEP inside LMAO)
And don't worry about typos! Didn't even really notice them! Harrumph, Tyler's more my speed. Scott would probably get all run over by me. Wanna switch places!? LOL.
