Young Avengers - Ted and Billy by Alhia Young Avengers - Ted and Billy by Alhia
Okay, that's official : there's nothing better in the world than just randomly sketching two of your current favorite characters in your sketchbook, and then inking it just because you're in the mood to ink, and then realize you can actually make a CG out of it, because damn, it's been one month you've wanted to try CG out.

Except, maybe, doing it when you're not supposed to work on your maths.
*sigh*

But damn, if I hadn't done it today I would have just never done it, and it was so awesome to draw/color!! I don't regret.

Teddy Altman and Billy Kaplan belong to Marvel and make their show along with the rest of the team in the Young Avengers series.
Edit: Oh yeah, before I forget : I know Teddy's hair not supposed to be like this, but I, uh, was drawing him for the first time without reference?
Tools: pen, ~Pastel-Cloud's special and awesome inking pen, photoshop (I? using Photoshop? End of the world coming soon for sure!)
Time: a whole afternoon and an evening. But I regret nothing. (Okay, I guess it shows that I haven't been able to just sit down and draw for a long time, uh?)

The way you did the coloring makes this look almost like an official comic XD Wouldn't it be nice, though, if it was? ;D

I have no idea what he's called. :( All I can remember about him is vague innuendo over the radio, an offensively green and low cut top, and being one of the few black guys I've seen in the Xmen comics haha.

Frankly, I focus more on Northstar. French AND American! My kind of guy haha

I think your attempt was worth it. This looks cool. It still looks very much like your style of art thanks to the lineart. I really like the use of the very black shadows--I've actually been attempting to gradually use a style like this! I think it's so cool! Anyway, your shading skills are awesome in this style~ In this example, I think it shows details (at least in some areas such as in the face) that watercolor can't. Plus, it looks more moody than soft watercolors do, which works for this... 'back alley' kinda scene.

I like it--if you ever feel the urge, I wouldn't mind seeing more in this style, too! You're multi-talented!

Aaw, the "back alley" scene, you pointed out the exact reason why I wanted to CG this way so much. Frankly, I think watercolor - or worse, inks - are not really fit for those kinds of scenes! Watercolor or ink colors instantly add a special, almost ethereal atmosphere, whereas I just wanted to do a plain and random slice of life.

Aaah, I'd love to! I loved CGing this one. I really hope I'll do another one soon!

Ah bah contente vu que ça vient d'un truc américain quand même XDD Et puis faut que je m'entraîne, à priori je vais faire un autre truc dans le style comics donc voilà XD; Et puis ne serait-ce que moi, je suis plus satisfaite quand je fanarte des persos dans un style qui ressemble au style d'origine.
Et puis contente qu'il te plaise tout court parce que bon, le CG c'est pas mon truc à la base !

Such a cute couple aren't they? I sadly only know of young avengers from Runaways.x.x
Reply
:iconalhia:
Alhia Featured By Owner Nov 4, 2008  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Yes, they definitely are. I love their interactions - they never make it the "big event" of the comic (except in the readers' letters, but that's another matter ah ah), but it's just there, and that's just great.

Oh, Runaways! Such a great story too! I prefered Young Avengers - because I love the "old school super-heroes", because of the art, and other things - but they're definitely a very very funny and enjoyable team. I want to re-read them one of those days! And the crossovers with the Young Avengers are great... Even though I guess they're a bit confusing when you don't know one of the series?

:iconvenuslove:
venuslove Featured By Owner Nov 10, 2008
I own book one of 'the loners' as well. :3


The crossovers aren't too bad--mostly because at the back of the book it explains the characters quite well and their backhistory and such--it made me want to read young avengers, even though their backstories seemed so beefed up--whereas runaways was more of a collective backstory. do they have young avengers in graphic novel form?

Alhia Featured By Owner Nov 11, 2008  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Ah, the loners! I didn't know they had their own series! Maybe I should give it a try?

I must admit I haven't read the characters backgrounds since I already knew them, but that's great if they explained it well! It's not always the case ah ah. Sometimes they just don't even say anything about them.
Yep, they have! But, uuhm... Nothing has come out ever since 2006 :/ There's one volume so far, with two arcs. And also one volume of the "Young Avengers Presents", which are 6 independant stories focusing on each character. I really love the main series, classical but really good and efficient. And I love Jim Cheung's art so of course it doesn't help being objective about this series XD;

Et contente de savoir que je ne saoule pas trop avec mes posts sur Young Avengers ! XDD (ah non mais Teddy il a la classe. J'ai lu les Civil War l'autre jour et il apparait et... oh my god. Meilleure apparition de tout le truc ah ah - non, je ne suis pas du tout subjective.)

Mais c'est affolant les comics, pour peu qu'on s'y mette, tout y passe XD; Ca ne m'étonne pas du tout que tu dises que tout ton argent de poche y passait ; moi c'était les manga, mais je m'imagine me mettre aux comics... Comme tout est crossover avec tout, t'as envie de tout lire, c'est encore pire =D;; Ils ont bien réussi leur concept commercial les mecs \o/

Arg, vous pouvez trouver les anciens numéros vous ;___; C'est cool, j'adore les ptits fasicules ! Pour Noël j'ai commandé les reliés X3 C'est bien aussi XD (Mais je sens que si un coup que je suis à Paris je tombe sur un de mes numéros préférés, je l'achèterai quand même XD;; C'est trop pratique à se trimballer ! ... Erf, je vais pouvoir commencer à économiser alors.)

Hee! I really like this. Billy's sunglasses are awesome, and the background is VERY cool.

I love how you've got it so that Teddy isn't built that different physically than Billy. A lot of fanartists make him really, really buff and tall in his normal/default/human form or whatever, but in the comics when he's like that he's really not that different from Billy.

Not that I mind the buff!Ted, I'm just sayin'. Haha. XD

So uh, yeah! Great job!

Eyh, thanks for the comment! I'm really glad a fan of YA that I don't know likes this drawing. It means a lot to me.

I just knew I would draw Billy with sunglasses the day I read issue#6. Totally fell in love with the way he and Ted casually clothed themselves. (And I'm a sucker for shirts. So I know I had to draw Ted as well.)

Aah, yes, I know what you mean. I personally really like the contrast between Ted's human and Skrull forms. I'll always remember the surprise I had when Ted's human form is revealed for the first time - "Wow, but he's just... he's just an average guy!" - even though I had already seen him in his human form on pictures before reading the comic!
And anyway, I'm not that good at drawing buff characters so I guess it just fitted what I'm used to do, ah ah. I can be lazy sometimes. But I'll have to get used to drawing buff!Ted, because I really like him that way too ;)

Thank you very much anyway! I really appreciate the fact you took the time to let a comment on this drawing :)

tu as tellement bien fait d'essayer, ca a un charme DINGUE et ca colle trop bien avec ton style (qu'on reconnait surtout sur le blondinet...omg je suis amoureuse XD)

Et dire que je voulais faire du CG récemment...je te laisse mon stylet!

Franchement tu peux pas savoir comment j'ai été soulagée en voyant ton com XD; Je sais que c'est bête, que je devrais pas me soucier de l'avis des autres, etc etc, mais j'étais complètement partagée entre "considérer ce dessin comme marrant à faire mais bof au résultat" ou "marrant à faire ET rendant bien". Quand j'ai vu ton mess j'avais un gros sourire niais ah ah XD

Eh eh, marrant que tu aies remarqué que c'est sur le blondinet que mon style se voit le plus! En fait c'est parce que c'est la première fois que je le fanarte, sans ref. Alors que l'autre, il squatte déjà mon sketchbook et j'ai eu l'occasion de prendre des ref à plusieurs reprises, surtout que j'a-dore la manière dont Jim Cheung le dessine X33

En tout cas ton gros fav fait super super plaisir >///< Merci à mort! Ca me conforte vraiment dans mon envie de m'asseoir devant mon PC à CGiser toute la journée ;__;
