I'm Karasuno's Ace! by rontufox I'm Karasuno's Ace! by rontufox
This time, for sure, I'll hold my head high, and say
"I'm Karasuno's ace!"



Screencap redraw of the epic scene from episode 17. 
If you're not familiar, here's Asahi, and in the foreground is Hinata's (the main character) hair.

In the original scene, Asahi's in complete silhouette til Hinata leaves the frame, but I wanted Asahi's details in there, so I combined two shots sorta.
Overall everything took a bit more brain power than usual haha, but it was incredibly fun!  I wasn't sure I could pull it off.  I was especially wondering how the heck to render a light starbursting using only a hard brush.  

Hope you like it!



Edit: here's the screenshots used for this, even though they're incredibly poor quality sorry sta.sh/022zzic29mt3

Asahi's an amazing character man.  So glad this conveys the excitement.  This moment had me cheering at my laptop screen for Asahi to GO do it, you can do it Asahi!!

Haha! I remember when I thought Hinata's hair was fire! :XD:
The lighting effect looks so cool in this! I really love the glare 'cause I've never known how to draw that!
And I still can't believe you drew all of the little people in the background! I probably would've chickened out and drew grey blobs in their place. :XD:

Go! Go! Asahi! (he's so awesome!)

LOL!  Asahi, rising up from the flames..... lolol that'd be way too dramatic.

Thanks!  It was fun figuring out the glare!  I like just slapping stuff down trying to figure out how to make it look convincing (with lineless at least).  Ugh, the people in the background were so annoying... I was kinda annoyed with myself for not putting more detail into them lol!

He's AMAZING.

It couldn't possibly add on to how awesome that scene was, anyway!

Ugh, background people...Don't know how you did it...

YES!

Everything in this shot it's super mega uber awesome! 

The effects, the angle, the shading... THE EMOTIOOOOON! Gyaaaaah!
Dang it rontu, I haven't felt like this in a long time with a piece of art, this one gives me a strong and motivating vibe of "I can do it and I will do it!"
Kudos man, don't stop this awesomeness! :w00t:

Holy cow, that's amazing to hear.  I feel like I'm really bad at portraying emotion or feeling in my stuff, so that's just freaking amazing you got this from that!  Granted, I got the composition from a screenshot... But I did improve (I think lol) the pose a ton, so yeah!  So glad you like it!  This scene, holy cow, it's so intense and inspiring and amazing!!  I'm glad I portrayed it!

Thank you so much!  That whole scene... that Aone guy yelling "Number 10!!!!!" and it looking like Hinata's about to smack the ball, but then Asahi erupts over his head.  Geez.  Amazing!

Whoooaaa nice! So dynamic! Once again, your lineless stuff blows my mind. I can't even fathom how you do that.
This show looks more and more interesting.

More brain power, I know that feeling right now! I'm trying to draw a dropped fast-food platter, aaaaaghhh! I even drew in SHREDDED lettuce for the burger because I wanted to be theme-fitting... stupid me. But the more I work on it the more I'm excited to finishing it! But sometimes I still feel as frustrated as that toddler that didn't want to put away her dishes www.youtube.com/watch?v=1ycoXi…:

This fanart here was worth every milestone! And I really do appreciate dat hair :icondatassplz:

lol!  I've never seen that video hahaha!  Wait, shredded lettuce?  Theme-fitting?  What's going on??

Thank you so much!  The hair was very fun! (a shame I had to blur it out, but it looks more convincing this way)

I'm taking things back to the 50s/60s era after some influence. A lot of the examples I saw for "retro" burgers had shredded lettuce (if they had lettuce at all) like this--> fbcdn-sphotos-b-a.akamaihd.net…, so I wanted to be proper. Thing is though I'm trying to draw realistically so more color and value, and time- which I'm not used to D: But looking forward to the day I finish it! :D

Ah the blur doesn't diminish it too badly, the bold colors define it enough so it still looks great! :icongrin--plz:
