Burdge-bug's Nico by pinxi-tinxi Burdge-bug's Nico by pinxi-tinxi
Nico di Angelo, from Rick Rriordan's Percy Jackson and the Olympians series.

Obviously, I didn't do this line-art. :iconburdge-bug: did. It's much too good to be by me. At the risk of sounding like a crazed fan, I'm going to go ahead and say that burdge-bug's art is amazing in every way possible and inspires me to be a better artist every time I look at it.

I had to transfer the lines a million and one times before it was all said and done, so my sort of softer style crept in. He's at the wrong angle, his eyes are wrong and so are his hands. It's not as good as the original, but it was still fun to color such amazing line art.

Original (that puts my art to shame): [link]

I love how you colored it! It's exactly how I imagined it when I saw the line drawing. :)

Yeah, it was fun :)
Coloring is much less stressful than drawing for me, so it was a blast to do.

I LOVE her Nico! He's so hot! I'm a fan of her too's. Whenever I want to draw, I just look at her art for a while and bam! I wanna draw! But damn Nico's hotter in color! *glomps* Great job at the coloring! I love water color!

Aw, thanks. I'm glad you like it. It's not like I could really screw it up, haha. Burdge-bug is pretty great after all.

I love this! I think the softness looks better for Nico... I love burdge-bug's art, but I think her Nico drawings looked to old and didn't quite capture his character. I think all together, this is one of the best portrayal's of Nico on here! ^^

Aww, thank you. I loved painting over her lines. I'm not the best at drawing, but I really enjoy painting, so it's nice to be able to only do the half I feel confident in.

And I must say, after seeing Burdge-bug's Nico when I read the books and found out how young he was supposed to be, I was actually a bit disappointed, haha.

You're welcome ^^, I'm the opposite. I can color with pencils and draw, but once I get a paint brush, that's where my artistic abilities end. Yeah, I don't like how he's often drawn years older than he really is :)
