Wild West Beckons by Nopido Wild West Beckons by Nopido
So meet Nicky, a wandering gunslinger/gunsmith. Her father was a legendary gunsmith, and ever since she was a little girl she helped him in his workshop. Everything he knew he taught to Nicky. When her father disappeared mysteriously she took her self-made handcannon, named "Mallorie", and set out to find him, and has been on the move ever since.

Gnrrhhg, this took way too much time considering how it came out. But oh well, I guess it COULD be worse too. I HATE COLORING METAL AND LEATHER

AND BACKGROUNDS

Sweet pic ! 8D
And I guess that to make her gun she too kin spiration from the Mateba Autorevolver for hte opening of the barrel, 357 Mag. for the drum and from IMI's Desert Ealge .50 AE for the muzzle ;3
The result gives out a quite epic result I have to say 8D

Gahh, it's been over half a year since I made this, and now I can't help but cringe when I look at that bloody gun :x. Gotta give it a better design the next time I draw her... And aye, "some" inspiration might've been drawn from those :3, Though truth to be told this is the first time I've even heard of Mateba O_o.

Naw the design is good, and it looks bloody awesome 8D
And here is the Mateba ( actually its real name is MaTeBa for Macchine Termo-Balistiche AKA Thermal Balistic machines ).
Here's a pic of it : [link]
What reminds me of the Mateba in the design of the gun is the way it opens up as the Mateba can iopen or like a 357. Mag or simply bend over just like Hellboy's gun ;)

Aye, most likely I've seen a gun like that at some point but forgot about it, then it came back when I started doing this piece =P

:iconitaliandragon:
ItalianDragon Featured By Owner Jan 12, 2011  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Ahh this explains it all X3.
So I suggest thatyou keep the design just like it is now 8D.
I need to do some light modifs of my design though ( this one : [link] )
I have some little things to fix within it.

(so here's the comment i've promised you! i've said i would wrote it and
i'll do it!)

So, this is really as usual a masterpiecei really can't deny it, a smexy and very charismatic character, the idea is for very original, it's changing from the futuristic or the actually time periods, the title already say it all anyway! that anthro anatomy is really well drawn, as oftenly say, you've got a very nice drawing style, making a great base for easily coloring the character! she's quite musclar we can see it well, one of the thing i found very important in the anatomy part!

For the character pose is find is quite stylish and sexy, i like this pervy effect your owns eye are catched by her but more than anything!, For her
arm pose, i don't it's difficult, but this deep effect of the arms is very well mastered, and for the hands they are both well done, i like the one who's holding the bullet, it's very hard hand posing for my opinion, the you've drawn it she's reloading her, since she's going to put the bullet in the gun's barrel. For the legs posing, the crossed legs is something i like too, it's giving a nice effect of walking to the character. In this body pose i like the is slightly tilt on the right, giving a a way she was taken by surprise with her head looking at the spectator and her cold look.

Well now for her facial expression like i said she's looking quite cold hearted...but that's simply an impression, but this serious surprised look is really awesome, especially her eyes, the first time i look i this picture i thought she had her eye full of red, with a black pupil...meh, but that's only me! oh yes... it's normal that the pupil is not that visible? maybe it's was the reason of my mistake meh!...but forget about that! it's only details!...so i like her haircut too, surely when they are fall on her face, that's adding a quite a nice style to her face, trust me on this! ^w^

Well, now let's go check a bit her clothing, shall we?
So this very original and stylish, western clothing, very sexy and wild, i finf it's fitting her very well! love it!, for the hat i find quite cool, slightly tilt foward!, it adds a outlaw look! the jacket and her leather shirt are great for me...well i find this short shirt quite sexy! it look Skin-tight, i'm sure it's want hehe!, well for the leather belt what can i say about it?....oh yes! that's holding quite interesting stuff! pockets and the revolver holder...but also this open pants! haha! that's where we going to the interesting part!
having an open open, we can see her really eyes catching pantie that's also skin-tight too! we can see she has a...beautiful butt haha! xD
well for the other piece of clothing like the the indian armband and the gloves are truly adding somehow again a outlaw style that i like a lot! well for her gun...she has a really big gun and i cannot lie! that's for sure! i've got to say the barrel is somehow weird that's the only detail that catching my attention when i'm examinating it, otherwise it's very well detailed! like it! ^w^

Well, for the coloring, you know as always, you're making an awesome job! the effect of the fluffly tail and body are really nice! adding shading to give a nice effect of musclarity and body details to the character! that's great! for her face is one of my favorite part! her eyes are really beautiful, she looks like a deamon with her red eyes and her long and beautiful hairs! ^w^
for the clothing coloring well, all i've got to say it's outstanding! well, the most well done is surely her pantie! and the color you've used is quite eyes catching! leathers clothings are not bad at all! even if leather is hard to color, i'm sure that's requierd a lot of training to have the skills to do it!, but i'm sure with the skills you've alright have you can do even better! plus the shading you've added on them are really great! you're mastering absolutly well the colored shading! and for the metal of the gun! it's look like aluminium! it's a very nice effect of metal shiny and beautiful the coloring, which i'm totaly agree, is giving a much bigger part than the base, it's not give it all!

Well, for the last part that's the background which is simple but giving a very good effect on the character situation and most of all into the context! the rocks are well done i the deep effect of the desert, and it is great too, i like the piece of dead grass you've added in the bottom of your drawing, the cloudy sky his taking a big part of the background but i think it's adding to the desert the deep effect that's putting in value!

I think that is all for the moment...i'm not sure if i did all the details but you've got a personnal opinion and a nice description of it...well for the overall i find it simply outstandly astonishly great! keep up this very promising work! i hope i'll see more of this great drawing like this! ^w^

"Wall of text crits you for..."

Hot damn, you should become an art critic =D. Thanks for all the compliments, they warm my (non-existent)heart! How long did it take to write that?

About some of the points you brought up: Yeah, her eyes are full red, no pupil. Couldn't get it to look right with a pupil so decided to not put one at all =P. How is the gun's barrel strange? Do you mean the design? =O

hehe! that's was the overwhelming cool comment!
*put epic music here*

haha, really? well why not? i like to comment your awesome
artwork there's no other word to qualify your drawing!
you're very welcomed!, haha! yeah i'm glad you like this
long (ok very long comment xD), to admit it i spend more than
1h30 to write this stuff, including the time i spend to examine
your stuff, but you know i didn't wanted to go deeper in the
analysis otherwise i would spend all the night! the thing do
1 and a half word page! haha! impressive right? ^w^

oh i see, the eyes are pupilless, i understand when i look
back at the drawing, you're right it would be less effects
woth black pupils, i agree! ^w^
i mean the barrel look a bit static, a bit stuck somehow...
bit i've said before, it's minor detail, you don't have to
worry about that! is only a minor thing i've noted in my
analysis of the picture... i hope you don't feel too
offended! :(

Woah, that's a full blown essay right there =D. Thanks for the effort, really appreciated!

Yeah the gun looks pretty two-dimensional, as 00vapour already mentioned. Got lazy with it :P. And come on, who'd get offended at being given constructive criticism? Feel free to point out other errors you might notice as well, you can never get enough critique ^^.

thanks you very much, i'm very flatered, the time was spend for this small essay was simply my opinion about your wonderful artwork!. You're very welcomed, keep it up this way, you're really reaching an excellent level! -bow-

yeah, pretty much, more a perspective work than other thing,trust me, but it will go away with the time, don't worry about it! ^w^
Well, i think no one! but i know some people they are making contructive criticism just to bring down people constantly,saying it not good and blah blah....that's not nice! theyare bunch of bastard they ar better than everyone! meh! >.>i love your work, i see mistakes but it's normal no one perfect! xP
Oh yeah, i've notice on funny mistake, the gun is looking a bit too big for the gun pocket, i don't think it can enter in it! xD
Reply
:iconnopido:
Nopido Featured By Owner May 19, 2010
I'll try my best! ^^

Well if they're criticizing someones work not because they want to help them but to put them down... Well, that ain't nice nice. If they act like they've got a stick up their arse, I say we stick one there.

Holey moley, right you are, the holster does look too small! Well, I guess she just carries it by hand and the holster is purely for cosmetic effect =P... If you find other faults when looking at my stuff, please do point them out!

hehe! that's the spirit! it's great to hear! ^w^

yeah, i definitly agree, that's not nice and there's
no point to do that! what's the bring more to them?
a self satisfaction? tss... well at least more shame
that's for sure! Critic should be nice, note if there's
mistake and help the artist to correct it and make them
improved! that's what a really critic should do for me,
because pointing someone saying "your work worth nothing"
i'll just kick them out of the way! >.<

Funny huh? the holster being a big small for the gun, you
can easily find another utility to it! am i right? xD
you know it's a big mistake, it's quite common and the
thing is nobody's perfect so you see! no worries about it!
sure! i'll point them up well i'll see some, i love looking
at details! i got sneaky eyes! xD

Some people just are like that, putting others down makes them feel good about themselves. Kinda sad in a way. The "constructive" part before "criticism" is there for a reason.

And it'd be so easy to correct too, if I just could get my lazy ass to do that =D... Sneaky sneaky!
