RWBY by A-R-Q RWBY by A-R-Q
Aha…ahaha it’s finally FINISHED! and with only two days to go!

I have spent the good part of the past two weeks doing this, I have no idea why I put so much time and effort into this but for some reason I just realllly had to do my very best on this. It’s the first time in probably two months or so that I’ve coloured a picture and boy did I feel rusty, it’s probably been even longer that I’ve drawn any full bodies too *sadface*.

But yes if you didn’t know who these ladies are they’re, going clockwise, Ruby, Yang, Weiss and Blake, the stars of the new show RWBY from Roosterteeth who are usually known for RvB. This poster was done for a contest of theirs, to create a movie styled poster for the show.

I did a lot of experimentation on this poster, trying out new ways of doing hair with Weiss and her majestic as all hell self and pretty much a lot of effects, like Wang’s fire puanch, the goddamn magic ring that refused to get into perspective for god knows how long and the snow which was surprisingly simple and now I also know how to make space backgrounds too. I also found out a cool setting for making clouds, it’s a bit rough in the poster but hopefully I’ll be able to refine the technique in the future.

So yeah with all that said, my RWBY Poster Contest Entry everyone!

Which text? The Logo or the film credits?

Film credits! I have no idea how to make it readable at that size.

I have forgotten the exact font name :< but I do know I found it on dafont, I'm sure it'll be easy enough to find, at the very least you can find something very similar to it!

Wow, I was almost convinced that there was a movie coming out when I saw this.

However, the issues I had with this is that Blake's katana looks like a claymore and Weiss's rapier could have used a bit more color around the chamber (or could have been put into perspective since it's one of the highlights of the weapon.)
Also, in my total experience with this kind of art...Yang's fire kind of reminds me of cheese puffs. This is not to poke (although it honestly makes me laugh when I think about it), but to say it from a perspective.

I want to say more, but I'm still new to DeviantArt to say anything else. Yeah, scared cat here.

Thanks for the comment yo,

Yeahhh Blake's weapon, I actually drew it wrong because I was using some strange references that made it look stubbier and shorter than it is. I wanted to do something perspectivey with Weiss' weapon too but I could not for the life of me figure out how to draw it, and with the deadline I wanted to get it done in time.

Also now I can't see the fire as anything but cheesepuffs haha. I'll have to figure how to make it look more fire like in the future!

And Welcome to DeviantArt! Hope you enjoy yourself here and most of all....

BE VIGILANT!
