Akiko Daimon by Felsus by elee0228 Akiko Daimon by Felsus by elee0228
Yet another Akiko Daimon commission. This time it's by =Felsus. I came across his gallery while searching for muscle artwork. He has mostly male artwork in his gallery, but I contacted him to see if he was open for commissions and had any samples of female artwork. He sent me over to his blog (warning: male nudity) which had a nice work in progress picture of another commission of the feminine persuasion. His rates seemed reasonable, so I asked for his take on Akiko.

Honestly, I never get tired of seeing artists interpretations of the character. Works in progress like this one are a good reason why I keep doing it. It's also nice when artists work quickly, like Luxuris did for this one. I contacted him on Tuesday, and the commission was completed on Thursday. Both the speed and the quality surpassed my expectations. I initially commissioned just the sketch of Akiko, though I definitely want to see this in color at some point. There are a total of 3 work-in-progress pics which I'll post to my scraps section, plus the higher resolution clean version which will go into my gallery. Hope you like this one as much as I do.

I made a few adjustments to the final drawing Luxuris submitted. I cleaned it up and resized the canvas. Also made some minor adjustments on the arm, getting rid of a line I didn't like. I dropped in some color into the circle he used to frame the figure. I figured since she's Japanese, the red would be appropriate. I added a darker line around the figure to try to get it to pop out a bit more. Comments are definitely welcome, I'm curious to hear if anyone has some suggestions to make the picture better? Download size is 1200x1600 for your viewing enjoyment.

Edit: Also available in =Felsus' gallery as Akiko Line

Edit: He asked me to change the name to Felsus, as he prefers to use that account.

Wow. I mean after looking at hit stuff, rather nice / refreshing to see this. Very nicely done. :)

Yup, I had some early reservations about the artist because of the usual nature of his artwork. But looking back, I guess I shouldn't have been worried. If you ignore the subject of his artwork, you can see the quality. :)

Just gorgeous. I like the red sun you put behind her, it does make her stand out more. The only thing I would like to see is more definition in her thighs, but then again I'm no artist and adding muscle lines might detract from the beauty of the overall piece. To each their own. :D

I agree, I think she should have a bit more leg definition. I think that's something that could get added in the coloring process.

Do you think he would be open to drawing Red?

I don't see why not. You should definitely commission him. Rates were very reasonable $30/$50/$90/$100/$200 for pencils/inks/color/simple bg/complex bg.

Cool work! Reminds me of the ghostbusters. But I sure as heck wouldn't want them to bust her. However with that strength I don't thnk they would be able to.

the red circle in the background. With her white colors. Only thing that's missing is the red slash thru it and the circle needs to be more hollow.
