Meta Knight by A-bob Meta Knight by A-bob
Need Better Title.
Colored version of the line art I made: [link]
EDIT- With background: [link]
I actually put a lot of effort into this. At first, I was convinced I'd do terribly, and kept messing with the cape no matter how unhappy I was with it. Then, I looked at it later, after all my messing up, and realized it didn't look bad. It's probably some of the best shading I've ever done! And it was a complete accident
With that confidence boost, I did the rest. :meow: And I like it. Background may come later. Though I'm scared I'll screw it up.

So what do you think?

Meta Knight (c) Nintendo

Yeah. I tried watching the whole thing, but I couldn't find all the episodes and sorta lost interest before I could watch them all. I did see the movie though. I was upset the series didn't have more Meta Knight being awesome.

It was okay. It had some serious shortcomings though. It was entertaining though.

With the transparent background, it looks like Meta Knight is going to pop right out of the screen.
Just, wow.

I didn't know that would happen. :meow: do you think I should post another with a bakcground though? I made one, but I'm not sure if I want to post the same picture a third time, even if there's more added to it.

Once again, I must thank you a ton. :aww:

Hm, well there's no harm in it. It's like a Work in Progress. What's good enough for some, might be better for others with a little 'more' added.
And you're welcome.~ ♡

:aww: Thanks a ton! Shading really isn't my strong point, but I actually managed it fairly well on this.

Light source; slightly above the middle at the right hand side 3/4 veiw frim MK!

This is really nice! I love LOVE the cape. You did a fantastic jod on the mask as well. Espically the ridge in the middle of it.
The (don't know the real name of it) collar that's above his cape is shaded backwards. With how everything else is shaded the darke side should be the closer side to the viewer, not the other way around.

I really like this.

Somewhere around there. Though I never actually decided as I did it. XD Just kinda... went at it and tried to shade in the same direction.

How well the cape turned out was a complete accident. XD But I love that accident.
The collar thing... that mistake was probably a result of me winging it with the shading.

I'm glad you like it. I like it too. :meow:

It's very good though.

It's one of those objects that's just really odd.... Like hair....
I hate hair V.V

Yay:iconyayzplz:

Thanks.

Hair can be difficult, depending on how you're doing it. I usually go for a simpler approach, but I should really challenge myself more. Don't have to worry about hair on MK or Kirby. XD

I usually do hair like [link] or in an Anime style like a Kirby character.
Nope, no you don't.

That style of hair looks good. I can't really make things look even semi realistic, you're definitely better at that then me. And anime hair is pretty easy, depending on the style.
Seems like a lot of things in art depends on style.

I think that's the truth of it. TO make hair look like how I do it all you need is a Ticongeroga pencil and a little paitence and you literally just layer on the shades.
It's really simple, but takes a ling time.
And really I'd tend to disagree.

True that.

I don't think I have ticongeroga pencil. I have some sketching pencils of various shades though. I just work with what I have.
When I say easy, I mean to a certain extent. Of course it's difficult, making it look like hair and all, but some artists put more detail than others, which varies the difficulty a bit. Still takes a lot of practice, no matter what way you look at it.
