Victorian Stu by stucat Victorian Stu by stucat
*Close up of it here [link]

damn this was started last year and had been collecting digital dust for ages D:

Third of the set and thought it would be rad to do a spring powered version of the saw. Instead of making loud V-twin sounds, the slow unravelling of high tension steel bands will be ringing in front of your face.
D:

Cheers to these fullas for all the helpful scribbling on this pic :]

Daily Deviation

Given 2009-09-15
Victorian Stu by ~stucat The suggester writes: "Stucat's attention to value and shading is impeccable, particularly when you consider he is working solely in black and white. Just looking at the clothing, Stu's loopy hair-do, or the intricate contraption by his side, you find the array of interesting details that give this piece its charm. Even though he's standing next to a wonder of Steampunk technology, Stu's expression is perhaps the largest anachronism. Austere as Victorian photography can be, Stu cuts through the black and white gloom with a confident quasi-grin, and thanks to this simple expression, we learn a little bit about his character."

For a cartoonish piece, this is amazing. The cloths and detail are so rich. Those shoes!!! xD They seem to stand out but very appealing.
Great work dude :)

Awesome lighting and shading. So much detail.

Ohh my lawd. Your mastery of lights and darks is simply stunning. Your images are always so beautiful, and clear-cut. How do you work out the light sources so well?
Reply
:iconstucat:
stucat Featured By Owner Jan 31, 2010
Cheers :]
Just observe what is happening around you and how light falls on different materials. Also starting with one simple light source makes things mush easier. Then you can go ahead and add another :U

Oh GOD, YES, I finally see an update from you. 8D

But DAMN, seeing a new deviation from you is like getting curbstomped in the face. You and your ridiculous details kind of do that to me. 8|
I am not surprised at all that this got a DD feature. Congratulations~ C:

NNNGGGHHHHHhhhh seriously, there's just a laundry list of stuff I want to point out, but it's mostly Stu's face (OH GOD here comes my obsession with ears again), clothes, and that table that floor me. Part of me is thinking you must be insane or something for painting all those individual hairs (THE EAAARRRSSSS :heart:) and... ARGH I need to stop fangasming. I keep staring at this and feel that I can practically touch everything that's in the picture from how real it looks.

STU, STOP BEING SO COOL. :heart:

My drawings do what to your face?!
I'd better stop then D:
There was a fair bit of playing around trying to get those ears look right, and especially the face (ohh dear, I did a bunch of faces and they all were bung as) most of those hairs are just quick spam flicks that can be done by anyone who can hold a pencil... like you!
Cheers again though for your splurge of words :]
much appreciated!

No, no, no, NOOOOoooo you better not stop drawing. D:

As for the face, I think all the playing around was worth it because it looks amazing- and what is this about simple spam flicks that even I can do? D: Clearly I must be doing something wrong then, because mine don't come out nearly as good as yours. *weep*
