Once more, once more. by cartoongirl7 Once more, once more. by cartoongirl7
Tools: Pencil for sketching/lineart, Photoshop CS5 for coloring.
Time: PRETTY DAMN LONG. I don't even know orz;;

Once more, once more.
Ill also roll today,
That girl says, that girl says,
Playing her words with a smile.

Are you better now? Its okay now. Lets go, you must be tired, right?
I'm gonna stop my breathing, now.

Wow for once I have something else other than "Copic Sketch markers" up there as tools O3O;;

This started out as just a doodle like usual, and I usually flat color my sketches on Photoshop to make it look less empty. This time I wanted to try cell shading, which I haven't really sat down and done before. One thing led to another, and I ended up finishing it as a full drawing.

It probably took much longer than it needed to be (or if I had marker'd it) because I spent most of the time cleaning up coloring and trying to figure out how things worked on PS, but I learned a lot after finishing this! It was a good learning process, yep. I am very slowly figuring out the ways of CG (✧≖‿ゝ≖);;;;

This picture is based off of a Vocaloid song called "Rolling Girl".
I watched the MV for the first time three days ago and immediately loved it. I really liked the feel of the MV, so I wanted to preserve it as much as I could. For those who haven't seen it yet, here's a link to the video: [link]

I honestly don't like hatsune miku like the other vocaloids, she is too kawaii...
But your drawing is amazing.
I really don't know to use a copic marker, is very rare here in brazil T^T
PrincessSkyler Featured By Owner Apr 13, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
the real lyrics are:
One more time! One more time! "I would like to roll again today, sir!" Well,
So she says. So she says! Hiding all the meaning behind a smile now!
"Are you okay? It'll be okay... You must be really tired by now, right?"
I wanna stop breathing, right now.

The person got them wrong.
