Maplestory Female Xenon Fanart

So I haven't been the most active lately with my art but I do have a great surprise for you all. I recorded the entire art process of my female Xenon fanart piece and created this nifty time-lapse video featuring the song "Cracks" by Freestylers. I thought the song fit the character well... ^_^

This isn't the first time I've recorded my art process, but this is the first time I've recorded the entire process successfully. As for the details, it took me approximately 4 hours and 9 minutes to complete the image based on the recording. I sped up the recording to 10x speed and it went down to 25 minutes. What you see above is the short version, which cuts out all the unnecessary bits (like me doing nothing but swirling the cursor around... or being indecisive about something rofl) and repetitive parts. If you're interested in the full timelapse version which has no music but shows the entire process, it will be included in my April 2016's Patreon reward.

The funny and annoying thing about the video is that the edit took longer than creating the art... 5+ hours... I dread video editing for that reason. However, I am proud of creating the video. I will try to do more of these in the future. I'm thinking of only recording the sketch and coloring phases as the lineart phase is pretty obvious and repetitive, it's mostly going over the sketch... nothing interesting.

Anyways, here is the lineart and illustration below:

And for those who are wondering why I made this fanart... it is because I was recently playing Pocket Maplestory and was playing this character. I liked the design of the character. =P
