Jak Through The Ages by KeyshaKitty Jak Through The Ages by KeyshaKitty
Yeah, so Jak my be my 2nd fave character from the games (you all know who's #1!) but darnit if the guy isn't fun to draw. :heart:

I am still getting used to my scanner and the way things work with it. Some things are easy to scan with (perfect the first time around) and others I am still playing around with the level-changes to get the image looking right. With this pic, I gave up after about 10mins of fiddling with the levels, because I couldn't get it looking anywhere near like the original piece ^^;

The original has much stronger-looking colours. Like the green on Jak's eyebrows and Soul Patch are a deep forest-green...nothing like the colours you see here. X3

Oh well. More playing around with the scanner next time.

EDIT: A-HA! Now THIS is what the colours SHOULD have looked like with the first scan! - Just like the original! :3 Finally, Jak no longer makes you need a pair of sunglasses to look at him and his bright skin.

No I couldn't, I shouldn't... Oh for crying out loud, I cannot help myself. I know old picture is old, but did it ever occur to your mind that those white splashes and spots... and when men... and his face and oh I'm such a horrible person.... A horrible, giggling person...

Teen Jak is cool and cute; Haven City Jak kinda cool but scary and anger issues (I would be too if someone pumped dark echo into me for 2 years); Wastelander Jak regained coolness and hotness of teen jak; Jak X total hotty!
Nice work thumbs up!

*sighs* I remember when he was an innocent little boy like that... and how now he's a seriously hot racer *drool* 0_0
verkoka Featured By Owner Oct 19, 2010  Hobbyist General Artist
it looks like valentino rossi xD awesome ^^
Esherymack Featured By Owner Aug 16, 2010  Hobbyist Digital Artist
.... that always gets to me, even though he's a video game character, how he was like a little boy, and then he's an angry dude with a big gun wrecking havoc on a city, and then he's banished to the Wastelands..... it just ain't fair.

Nice lol I love his Jak 2 Expression ;)

The soul patch was a wonderful addition in Jak II. Funny cuz that's really the only thing that seems to have changed at all, but somehow it makes him look much more mature ^^

But NOT more the kingdom Hearts. o.o
I enjoy the freedom it gives you to get eaten by fish-sharks. :)

So awesome. x.x;

I've always loved the way you do Jak's hair.
Yakow Featured By Owner Sep 4, 2006
my scanner is a pain in the arse too. Maybe you should try turning the saturation down a teeny bit. it's less owies that way.

^^ great pic. I'm a little late commenting and stuff (as always but there ya go)

love Jak's hair (Jak X) looks spiffy!

you always mangage to impress.
I could try pimping your image for ya a bit if you like. I find my scanner either makes the perfect skin tone look sunburnt or like a tangerine tan! hehe.
angevar Featured By Owner Sep 2, 2006
:D Long Live Short, Orange and Fuzzy (and long live his sidekick while we're at it).

Awesome job with this (as per usual). I like the white splatter-spots and I personally think that if the colors on this are anything to go by, the original must be amazing.
OsaP Featured By Owner Sep 2, 2006  Student General Artist
