Ok, there *would* be an animation, but for some reason my computer dies when I'm almost done with the picture... this is from the last screen-save I took.
I'll try to finish it, but it's quite piss-offy.

Xodiak (edited May 21, 2002)
super sexy! excellent picture! Marcello i love you! <:o
nobuyuki (edited May 22, 2002)
for skin tones you can use the ShadeOff tool in PaintBBS to blend it the way you want (if working with watercolor tool doesn't create smooth enough tools for you)... Did the colors themselves come directly from the photo reference or did you eyeball em? X3
marcello (edited May 22, 2002)
Ya the blur tool helps on the shading, but just a tad, a lot of it is layers and layers of color grabbed with right click off combinations...
The colors are um...sorta from the reference, but due to the nature of the photo, I couldn't really grab useful colors (every other pixel was completely different), and I was too lazy to open photoshop and use the area grab hehe. Anyway overall the color of the clothes is off, and the skin is more tan in my pic, heck maybe the hair too... I didn't match the colors very well, but I still like 'em.
KolekoVee (edited May 23, 2002)
Very Pretty. Nice Job.

grieVer5401 (edited Jun 22, 2002)
Wow, this is a first time I look at an awesome PaintBBS work.. ^0^
mia (edited Aug 25, 2002)
Wow, she looks very realistic! NiCe!!!^^
rosalyn (edited Sep 21, 2002)
Wow you do great realizm!!!OO
Sweallii (edited Nov 7, 2002)
That looks really awsome! How did you put it back on after a screen shot? I haven't been able to and I lost a pretty good pic, for me atleast.....
Ameraq (edited Apr 25, 2003)
Wow. Wow. Wow. Wow. Wow. Wow. Wow. Wow. Wow. Wow. You make me feel inferior with you superior drawing skills. grr.
Doodlibop (Aug 24, 2003)
Yeah! Marcello! Rock them cyber hips, Boyeeee! j00 OWNZ!!!!!!!!
concannon (Aug 24, 2003)
I have NOT seen this one before. Holy crap though, it's magnificent.

...and sexy. *licks*
Turtlebuster (Aug 24, 2003)
It's wonderful. you did a magnificent job with here form, and her legs/hips especially. I think here hair is a little bit 'wiggish'. it doesn't look unreal, but it looks like she's wearing someone else's scalp :D
marcello (Aug 26, 2003)
Note: this was based ("copied") from a photo. It's much less impressive when that is taken into account....
*runs off to find photo* ... here
tappie_chan (Oct 20, 2003)
this is beautiful. I love the color scheme. Was that from the pic too, or did you alter it? (the link didn't work). anyway, excellent work ^_________________^
marcello (Oct 21, 2003)
partly, but mostly the pic...
LiLMac05 (Dec 7, 2003)
hey this looks excellent very good job
CrystalineWings (Dec 30, 2003)
Looks like a pic I saw of Kirsten Dunst...
Gandalf (edited Jan 8, 2004)
this celeb ... Mnnnn
Carlucci (Jan 18, 2004)
that's amazing! GREAT JORB
DeadlyBlondeArcher (Jan 18, 2004)
Only been browsing the site a few days, but this is one of the few examples I've seen so far of what I call REAL art. You're very talented -but guess you know that already.
marcello (Jan 18, 2004)
Above image is broken, this was the best I could find (a smaller piece of the reference I used), in that context I don't think it's that great
DeadlyBlondeArcher (Jan 18, 2004)
I checked out the pic, and "in that context" I'm even more impressed - it's a remarkable likeness of her. Capturing the exact features and expression - amazing.
Alicia (Jan 21, 2004)
This is so real! Just missing a hand.:)
rikurules (Jan 23, 2004)
that is tight
Look (Jan 24, 2004)
nice legs!!! very sexy
Sotalean (Feb 3, 2004)
Whoot! Defitely one of your best in this gallery *thumbs up*
bumpinthenight (Mar 31, 2004)
HOLY!!!! YOU REALLY CAN DRAW WELL!!! *chokes on tongue, rolls on ground, attempting to gasp for air, then dies of asphyxiation...* Really great colors and proportions of her body...
Pandora (Apr 2, 2004)
Wanting so desperately to get to this point. Drop dead gorgeous work!
JackSprat (Jul 23, 2004)
Very Nice! /me Rates this 4 out of 5 aminal cookies.
Mipunai (Aug 16, 2004)
Wow, this is awsome. I love the colors X3
Chezas_Place (Nov 13, 2004)
her face looks like a man...hheheheheh but i lufffffffff it a lot no offence ^-^'
marcello (Nov 13, 2004)
you must have some curious men in your life, then.
DeadlyBlondeArcher (Nov 13, 2004)
OOh I forgot about this one. It most certainly does not look like a man, you little twit. Do another one like this, Marcello.... a brunette, maybe. You've got a lot of talent but I think you're LAZY!!!! lol... jk.
Axil62 (Nov 13, 2004)
You surprised me. And here I thought you sucked at drawing. Nice job dude...really. Although her chin is off center a tad. Maybe thats what Chezas retard comment was about.
DeadlyBlondeArcher (Nov 13, 2004)
This was one of the first drawings I ever saw here.... he really does have lots of talent. Just lazy, you think? ;)
Anna (Nov 13, 2004)
Ahh yes .. this one. I'd love to see another one of these. :-)
DeadlyBlondeArcher (Nov 13, 2004)
Okay, darlin', you get the bullwhip, I've got the branding iron. Get busy, boy! ;)
Anna (Nov 13, 2004)
Hmm now this sounds like fun. lol :-P
DeadlyBlondeArcher (Nov 13, 2004)
Hell, yeah, it's gonna be fun. :)
Anna (Nov 13, 2004)
woohoo, now where'd he run off to?? hehehe
me007 (Nov 13, 2004)
wow this is awsome marcello!! the shading, the hair, the body is just perfect! Awsome job!
marcello (Nov 14, 2004)
o_O *takes off*
Anna (Nov 14, 2004)
awww c'mon, Cello! I'll be gentle... I promise.
marcello (Nov 14, 2004)
I'm not falling for that one twice
Anna (Nov 14, 2004)
Damn. So how about.. um.. "I'm a good girl! 0:)" ??
marcello (Nov 14, 2004)
how about.... *takes off*
Anna (Nov 14, 2004)
lolol ok ok Scaredy cat :-P
Spike (Nov 14, 2004)
Does she have any underwear on?
pulmonq2 (Dec 28, 2004)
her lips look a bit large, but she has very nice legs and chest. nice work ;)
CLK_Design (Feb 20, 2005)
Her face looks so real! *stares*
Split (edited Jul 26, 2005)
I like nice sexy girl.Keep it up if only it were Pamla Anderson.Take it off?waht do you mean?
nuclear_warfare (Sep 24, 2005)
oh dear this is stunningly beautiful!
khendar (Feb 9, 2006)
I'm sorry but why is this in the Showcase ? I've been lurking here for several months and seen several works which surpass this one. Its good, but nothing spectacular.

Too many details are obscured by the blurriness. Her hair is unrealistic and does not look like it has any weight or flexibility to it, her facial features are out of proportion, and the composition is dull, perhaps something in the background would have improved it somewhat.
marcello (Feb 10, 2006)
were those several works done in paintbbs in 2002? standards on 2draw are constantly rising. when this was added to the showcase, those pictures didn't exist. hell, those applets didn't exist, and I'm guessing those artists hadn't even found the site.
the showcase has to be looked at in context of time, we don't remove things from showcase.

but you're right, this picture is crap, and I'm not sure why it was added.
Maiko (Feb 10, 2006)
hooray for Cello~!

Hey D: you lied to me, you said you never got your work showcased.
I feel betrayed ;w;
marcello (Feb 10, 2006)
I was trying trying to make you feel better. or something.
davincipoppalag (Feb 10, 2006)
Jeez don't tell her about the other 3...
DeadlyBlondeArcher (Jan 19, 2007)
Recap... Marcello is talented.
marcello (Jan 19, 2007)
or another way to look at it, I've barely improved.
DeadlyBlondeArcher (edited Jan 20, 2007)
Another way to look at it... you're too smart for your own good, and you know what you're capable of, and you don't feel the need to "prove" yourself.
Nightmare (Jan 19, 2007)
He drew this at 16.

Here we can see the beginning of his stunted improvement.
DeadlyBlondeArcher (edited Jan 20, 2007)
And you're what?.... as I recall.... 14 going on 43?
Nightmare (Jan 19, 2007)
Wraith (Jun 21, 2007)
She is HOT.. Just HOT! :D
QTgillie (Mar 20, 2008)
This is so pretty!
Broken_Heart_ (Jun 29, 2009)
WaW..very nice..Good-Job
dorothyblueeyes (Jan 25, 2012)
it is very lovely, but i was wondering,do most of the showcase wind up as female pix?the tiger was different, yes.maybe that's what lotsa younger artists draw a lot, lots of anatomy. i forgot, we did do that a lot. " figures, figures,nudes," and when you get outa school, you get a job at kinkos, running machines.tsk tsk.
