So , Here is Galactic Ranger Betty Murata .
Oh boy . This is part anime , part cartoon , part retro , part steam punk , part Range Murata , and somehere there ( probably on the small skirt) is part ME , ha ha .
As I said , It looks different from my usual technique ,but an artist always need to try new things .
This one take longer to finish , since I was trying to mimic the style of the great Murata .
And Not pretending I was successful.
for now I just hope I can have achieved a nice look .
I tried to keep betty colors and costume designs ,of her adult version ( on the end of season 2 I guess ) .
The fun part was to invent all those gadgets while I was painting .
No Idea what is that thing on her side belt or wrists.
But , On the center belt there is the Atomic generator that all Rangers have , and gave them their special abilities .
You really dont think she goes to the gelid vacuum space only wearing that mini skirt, without some special protection .
As you noticed on my previews images , I started on a digital sketch , that was very messy , and spent a good time cleaning it .
The colors , and shadings are on a single layer , but I used some color masks to help me isolate the parts on the painting process .
This file is half the resolutiion I worked , just to gave you an idea on how to make some fine details on Photoshop .
So , that's it , enjoy this new Betty .
And if someone see Range Murata out there , tell him I sent my thanks for the inspiration .
Oh , and to the creators of atomic betty cartoon too ,
