Leif by MayYeo Leif by MayYeo
Ugh. Look! It's a boy, and he's stiff, and he's posing! >____< . And I cannot draw manga for my life!!
Gomen ne, this is another character for who belongs to . I promised her I would do her Leif since... Eh... Dun remember ^^u.
Well, gotta do the comissions before someone kicks my face.

PD: OMGosh, he looks so strange with those marks and the amulet... That's what happens when you try to convert something from manga to eh... "Realistic" style?

I think it looks great. The manga and realistic look combine really well. You can especially see it in his face.

He's very cute.

He looks like someone I've seen before :confused:
SinjinMcCloud Featured By Owner Feb 21, 2006
I like the detail on the hair. It looks very nice.

He's beautiful! :heart:

I don't know anything about this kind of art but I can recognize something great when I see it. :+fav:

Don't worry about, manga isn't a certain restrictive style. There are manga out there with realistic drawings. Dunno why but the guy reminds me of a high school rebel. Dunno why, just does. And that's a good thing! I love it!
Always do your best!
Heiko Featured By Owner Nov 22, 2004
very cool and realistic I think the face marks look cool

Oh wow. I really love this one. Especially the colors used. I actually like the marks on his face. It gives him character :P :hug:
c0ffecat-jun Featured By Owner Nov 12, 2004
but realistic styles never die ^_^
i luve the way u render this one :)
BloodyWine Featured By Owner Nov 10, 2004
OH MY, I just cannot open one of your drawings without letting a "WOW" come out of my mouth! It's fantastically well made - as always! And hey, the guy is cute, those marks on his face just make him special and even cuter! :aww:
chikori Featured By Owner Nov 10, 2004
I tried to send the pictures I was talking about to you... :< But they got bounced back... Should I just link them somewhere and just give you the links to them?

Mayyyyyyy~~ he does not look as strange as you say he looks! In fact, I think he's quite cute. X3 :heart: And it's okay if you can't do the 'manga' style that, like, half the world does (and I love it anyway) X3;; 'cause you've got your own thing going on! ^^ I love your realistic style; it really brings a new sense of reality to the chara - like your Ed picture, for example? It was just SO awesome to see Ed drawn as an actual human being, and so it's pretty cool to see this chara, who I'm guessing is normally in anime/manga style, as if he were living... at any rate, INCREDIBLE rendering of fabrics!! *o* The pleats of his pants are so beautifully done; it's like I can reach out and touch them, and I love how you painted his shirt~ the wrinkles look so awesome! :heart:
angrymikko Featured By Owner Nov 8, 2004  Professional Digital Artist
really nice, you're so good with colouring skin and generally it's drawn so well that I'm going over there and I'm going to do some swearing because I envy you.
dnieltxra Featured By Owner Nov 8, 2004  Student
May, he is so beautiful. His pose has a lot of charm. I like all folds in his clothes.
This adaptation is amazing and he doesn't look weird with the marks.
Ikun Featured By Owner Nov 6, 2004
i love the face, the colors in the lips are totally awsome =D nice draw

STracyArt Featured By Owner Nov 5, 2004  Hobbyist General Artist
The clothing looks fantastic. The folds are done in a manner that it seems like you could reach out and touch them. Very well done!
frodobolson72 Featured By Owner Nov 5, 2004
Ni falta que te hace dibujar manga! Con el estilazo que tienen tus dibujos no vayas a cambiar ahora, eh?
Es broma!(lo de tu enorme estilo no, eso es totalmente sincero).Hablando en serio, seguro que si te pones a dibujar manga lo haces igual de bien, pero este estilo realista me gusta muchiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiisimo más.
Por cierto, muy muy guapo el chico (pero que no se entere mi novio,jeje)
Un besito desde España!
ennia Featured By Owner Nov 4, 2004
You've done a great job here and that's no surprise! I love your attention to detail and your lighting here is exceptional. Well done babe.
strahan Featured By Owner Nov 4, 2004  Professional General Artist

MayYeo Featured By Owner Nov 4, 2004  Professional Filmographer
"Hueheheheh" is some of wide known laugh in your country? Hehe, I know a guy who laughs that way.
Thanks for your comments! :hug:

O.O *stares in awe* You know....I don't ever remember asking, but then again, I have a really really really bad memory. Oh! Wait! I do remember asking for this! Duh! Yes...well..:blush: Ahem, he looks outstanding! I love this picture and well this was much needed after my first day at work, which wasn't too peachy, but this allll makes me feel 100 times better and well, gives me something to smile about. I LOVE the hair, I mean, it's perfect as well as the marks on his skin. Yeah, he does look alittle odd as you said, but well, he is suppost to. I mean in reality how many people in real life do you see with markings on them like that? I kinda made him to be...odd. Well, the coloring is needless to say wonderful as well as the outfit, I suits him and is something that he does wear, so that was pulled off very nicely. Gods, what more can I say about this?

Leif: Ye could start by thanking her...>.>

Ah! Yes...of course. Thank you very very very much! This is soo awsome and I love it. Needless to say this is an instant favorite and something I will cherish for a long time. I am grateful that you took the time to do the TSP comissions, I mean that is just awsome that someone with your tallent would take the time and do something that people wanted to see. Did that make any sence? I hope so. Again, thank you soo soo much! Muchas Gracias! Yo soy el rojo bano gato! Um...wait...ignore that last part. I took 5 years of spanish and I can't remember much. Again, thank you thank you thank you! :heart:
MayYeo Featured By Owner Nov 4, 2004  Professional Filmographer
I feel so releaved ^^u
I was thinking you didn't like it... * phew *
So glad about it. Hum, about drawing TSP characters... Hey, don't ask, I just do it for fun! All my stress goes away when I do another character of yours... They're all fantastic! I love them all and you all have such a great imagination. It lets me do a great variety of bishies :floating:
Aerythes Featured By Owner Nov 3, 2004
You're sure handy with drawing handsome guys :D. His proportions are good and his pose natural. Reminds me a bit of Ashton Kutcher too.
spiderlady Featured By Owner Nov 3, 2004
That is awesome. It is very realistic. The folds in the clothing are very nicely done. This is a piece you should be very happy about.

Waiii, it's Leif! *Jumps around* And he looks so good!! (Leif happens to be my chara Syd's bf XD) Yaayy! Great job, and I think the marks and amulet look fine!

You did a superb job. Congratulations! :clap:
mori-memento Featured By Owner Nov 3, 2004
This picture doesn't show in my box! so weird DA..
You can't draw no everything could be,if you just started to do it.
As much as I see and I can suggest you..
You just saw mangas that isn't your style and you've been so worried about it,
this idea repeated and repeated in the mind,it's disturb.
Maybe it isn't now,getting your will come soon :nod: when you know what's yours.

Let's make a simple story time before you start drawing!
MayYeo Featured By Owner Nov 4, 2004  Professional Filmographer
Ah, morichan I didn't understand what you wrote ;____;
Do you mean we should do an story together next time???
mori-memento Featured By Owner Nov 4, 2004
I can't.Because I wasn't successful on it.^^'

I'm sorry that make you confused,Okey what I said is...

1)About Manga,I said it' doesn't mean you can't just now that you can't.

2)...also in one day in future you finally found what is yours...
I mean ---your style,your way to interpret your idea on manga.

3)I suggest you next time making a short story before drawing picture.It really work! Because when you have story, then picture will also get theme too.

PS.I really want to see your manga:D :D
Waenaglariel Featured By Owner Nov 3, 2004  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Really Cool artwork as ever^^.May-san.
It's true that it's maybe different when we drawing between manga and realistic style.
but each type has it's own unique and attractiveness.
so, take it easy. you are also the elite one of your style ne ^^.
and I really love your works :heart:

MaxRogue Featured By Owner Nov 2, 2004
Estos chicos tuyos siempre son tan sexy! no es usual verte este tipo de cosas, pero te quedó muy bien. A mi si me gusta como se le ven los tatuajes y el amuleto. El amuleto por lo menos se ve muy fashion jajajajaja.
Lo que más me gusta de él es la expresión de sus ojos y su pelo. La anatomía de la cara en general está impecable! muy buen trabajo!
MayYeo Featured By Owner Nov 4, 2004  Professional Filmographer
Haha, amuleto fashion, ta bien XD
Gracias por tus comentarios... A mí no me gustó mucho el cabello >____>
elias-sakuma Featured By Owner Nov 2, 2004
Eek! *tackles* Leif-kun! You did a great job on him May. I'm in love with how you did the hair.

may chan...i really loved the brush strokes, the way you render it, and the face, oh my god! you're the master! it's so fine, so beautiful...the colour quite simple which I like and Its Great! totally awesome!
cresendoll Featured By Owner Nov 2, 2004
The face the face lits up and it looks so gooooood. I like it very much. Your color use is really good, the folders on the clothes etc. I just don't really like the hair, he needs someone to fix it up! XD~ You are his stylist.
Saiyuri Featured By Owner Nov 1, 2004
I love his hair and his face. The focus really seems to go to his face.
mr-mister Featured By Owner Nov 1, 2004
Cannot draw manga?! Whatever you! This is so damn great, I would pay good money to read a comic illustrated entirely by you!
cardinalofnightmares Featured By Owner Nov 1, 2004
awesome job on this one, very realistic
adox-tnw Featured By Owner Nov 1, 2004  Professional Digital Artist
De nuevo impresionante. La iluminacion de la cara esta excelente. El amuleto no podria haber quedado mas bien, es muy original como da la vuelta a su cuello dos veces, y bueno en general el look medieval pero a la vez contemporaneo de todo esta demasiado bien. La unica critica constructiva que puedo hacerte es que fijate la parte de arriba de la cabeza, el cabello ahi esta muy liso y delineado comparado con el despeluque que tiene a los lados . Great job ! :)
