Nuts N Bolts Technically Yours by UnstoppableAvengers Nuts N Bolts Technically Yours by UnstoppableAvengers
First of all, billions, BILLIONS of apologizes that I have decreased Platypus's title from "professor" to a regular "doctor", but I honestly have noticed that little error at the very last moment. Oh well. I hope this won't ruin my entire dye job in which I have put heck knows how much effort.

So, you might ask me how this was done, huh? Well, handcrafted the shading with a regular pencil (yes, a REAL pencil if you wonder), then scanned the result and colored it as I usually do, with some post-production in GraphicsGale and Photoshop. I wanted to do more of these, BUT: 1) I am pretty close to the deadline, 2) I realized the pic looks cool enough already, I mean, doesn't the border really look metallic?

Say what? Oh yes, I have cheated a bit as well. It may not be obvious on the first glance, but I confess I have cropped the pic just a bit. Well, what else I could do if the scan wasn't as perfectly lined up as I would wish?

However, you may have already noticed I have given these signatures for some reason (well, you may read that reason out in the official contest entry, although I doubt you'll figure out what was it)!

Wishing good luck to the others who did it their own way! So, may I go do my Evangelion NSF and then to bath already?

I like the texture you were able to achieve. It sort of reminds me of a wooden etching or lithograph...

And to be fair, though the title he goes by is "Professor", like most professors, he does have a doctorate. A doctorate he got by cheating on his final exam mind you, but a doctorate nonetheless...

Actually, that was going to be a metal texture (and, by metal, sorry for the tauthology caused, I mean scratchy metal), but I guess that doesn't matter much right now. :D

Well, in any case, thanks for all the support, even if this color isn't seen by many yet.

It may not have been exactly what you were going for, but I like it all the same. I can also tell you put a lot of time and work into this; that's always a plus.

Believe me, I took four times longer timeouts compared to all the time I dedicated myself to job between those. :D Still, even I can say the result looks fresh and sweet.
