Lena sketch by foolyguy Lena sketch by foolyguy
I had lots of freetime on Sunday, so I ended up sketching up my character Lena (that's the girl who hangs with Fooly) There's lots of concept work in here, that will be reflected back in the comic, but I won't be going into any of it.

I'm really glad how far my pencil skills are coming these days, I was able to do ALL this without any ink at all. I'm hoping I will never need to use ink again if I can keep this up :airborne:

The image is pleasing overall, but I dunno about the eyes, I'm always conflicted on choosing either the traditional large round eyes found in anime, or going for some more realistic eye designs as you should may have seen in some of my other works.

I really wanted to extend more on the background, but my creativity ran out there, which is why it came out so incomplete.

Done all in .5mm Mechanical pencil

Very nicely done. Your skills with a pencil are improving greatly. Glad to see all your practice is finally paying off. I love the amount of detail you put into this. It really stands out and your artistic style is beginning to stand out a lot more in your art. The wrinkles, anatomy, everything; it's all flawless. I envy your skills with a pencil. Keep up the great work. Hope to see more from you soon.

Well let me get through some college finals first, but I'm hoping to update with a lot of cool stuff this coming season.

You didn't ink that? ..... oh how I envy you. If I could be done with inking I'd be most pleased.

Kind of an interesting turn here, for me anyways since I interpeted this girl to be more of the typical "girly girl" (for lack of a better term) from her previous apperances but here I get the sense of more of a tomboyish inventor type. That could just be me though.

Very nice of course, I am really starting to grow quite a bit of interest for this story :D

Well we will see what you say in the final result. Don't forget the story is indeed getting tweaked. Some things will stay others will be left behind. Understand that potentially nothing can be safe.

...Whoa, no ink at all? Dang. Practice makes perfect, I guess. :D
This is great, man. Good work!

I don't see any mistakjes here, if there then I didn't see them. Is it mne, or is she a little older than she is in the Fooly comics?

No the age is still the same, though this is the first picture with a significant close up on her.

How old is she anyway?

It's ironic that when I typed mistakes, I made a typo and somehow added a 'j' in there!

I apoligize for neglecting to answer this question x_x Her age is a little conflicted on what is should precisely be, but no younger than 9 or older than 13 would be the basic range.

The exact age is yet to be decided, but for the moment 9 is what will *probably* be the final decision on her age.
