Unusual Suspects On A Usual Night by Alenas Unusual Suspects On A Usual Night by Alenas
I've always loved DRRR! for its crazy characters and storyline so, I've had this scan in my folder for ages but I didn't know what exactly to do with it technique-wise. In the end, I decided to vector/vexel it all since I've been in this simplistic, vector-ish phase for a while now. And I wanted a break from smudging the shiz out of stuff, anyway. xD

The scan had black bars of doom so I had to expand the top and bottom of it (I suck at drawing feet/shoes, please ignore Izaya's) and sketched the rest of the stuff. Working on that background was a real pain - there were so many little lines to add and color everywhere; coloring the characters was the most enjoyable part of the whole process - the original scan was rather plain when it came to details so I had to add my own shading and lighting on them. I guess I could've added more stuff on them and the background but I had a feeling it would all look overcrowded then. Those clouds irked me and they still do but no matter what other shapes/brushes I tried, they just looked weird so I left them as they were in the original. In the end I added some subtle brushes/textures and that was it.

This looks rather simple but it took me nearly a week. I wanted to include the standard resolution, too but then I would've had to crop Izaya out and he's such an awesome troll the wall just wouldn't be the same without him. xD

Aaand that's it. Hope you like it and as always, feedback is welcome!

Lol, it's not a horror story, don't worry - it's comedy mixed with some romance and intriguing characters best trolls you've ever seen. I definitely recommend.

Lol, not literal trolls, I meant trolls as people, you know - people who like to troll/irritate others. xD

Yeah, you should - at least first few episodes - it's mostly slice of life type of anime, mixed with comedy, some romance, drama and supernatural. It's just...different, not your typical cliched anime plots with characters with no development. *shudders*
