Nova by AlphonseCapone Nova by AlphonseCapone
NOVA
Nova is the main character of a game named StarCraft: Ghost. The game was originally scheduled for release in 2005. But it was indefinetly postponed. This drawing is drawn for a drawing contest. And is one of 2 winning drawings in the 2D section of the contest. There was a total of 4 guys who won. Originally the contest had just 2 winners, but due to an error and a deadline shift it was expanded into 4 winners. In other words, if that had not happened, I would not have won. Therefore, im very very very greatful that they decided to do this.

Nova makes an apperance in StarCraft II: Wings of Liberty.

Drawing spesifications:
Estimated time: 30 hours
Mediums used: Mechanical pencil 2HB lead, small smudging piece of paper
Size: A4

Awesome work!! Really awesome!! 30 hours is long. Patience is my biggest obstacle when it comes to my work, but it yields brilliant results as this picture shows.

Oh my! This is so fantastic!!!!!!!!
You are so talented, that I feel that I must lay my pencil down and never ever draw again, for my drawings are emberising!
But then again, I just love drawing so much, I couldn't do that!
Well done!!!!!! You are truly a great artist!

Very clean work on the face. That's a tricky spot if you are working on an A4. Also the expression on her face! nice that innocence in contrast with the situation.
The perspective is so close that it realy looks like she looking at you.

And amazing the metalic texture, that's not easy to get.

You can be good drawing, but to combine that expression together with the pose and the situation, you've got to be inspired.

Congratulations
