And here we have my first full attempt at Scott's evil ex, Envy. I've sketched her out a few times but never actually inked or colored any of them. I tried a little harder on the coloring, tried to do some mood stuff, not quite successful but I'm trying and learning. I have the things I'd like to do in my head but then when I get to Photoshop I don't have the technical nor artistic know-how to execute them (one of the many downfalls to being almost entirely self-taught. Moral of my story: go to art school!) Someday, though. Someday.
I love Envy. Not love her in the way that I'd marry her or even want to hang out with her (I'd definitely go see her in concert, though) but she is one of the most fascinating secondary characters. She has basically two archs, and each one makes her so intriguingly selfish, yet there's a broken girl in there somewhere, but she's as secretive about it to the audience as she is to the characters around her. I realize how strange that sounds, but I'm strange, so, what're ya gonna do, right?
As a few added notes, I looked at concert pictures of Metric's lead singer Emily Haines when drawing this, one was a heavy reference. Emily was the influence for Envy's film look and Metric wrote 'Black Sheep,' to song Envy sings. I originally was going to make her blond, as portrayed in the film by the lovely and talented Brie Larson, but since I was channeling a moment from the graphic novel, I decided to go with the coloring Bryan has used in color pictures. I guess I flip-flop on this, 'cause I always paint Kim Pine's hair more like she had it in the movie, instead of the comic, which is darker and redder (actually, on the front and back covers of volume 3, Envy and Kim seem to have the same color hair, so I could do it like that, but Kim's hair is orangier in 'Wonderful World of Kim Pine,' so I'm okay doing it that way.)
