Another commission for :iconillegaltruffles:! :heart:
Tried to do storm clouds + the ocean cause Korru likes these things ^^;..

My brain is so fried from doing this picture @_@;. Seriously, trying to visualize the cloud formations and translate them from in my head to on the tablet to on the screen was bleh. And working at larger canvas sizes was bleh too.

Plus I spent so much time hunting for this particular tool I wanted to be able to use :<. I mean it's on oekaki, so why can't I emulate it on openCanvas which is the more complex program? In the end, I never did find it and wound up having to switch between watercolour and airbrush every few strokes (also quite frustrating).

I also spent a great deal of time on lineart xD.. because I was trying to weight it (as practice) but in the end, it really doesn't matter cause you can't see much of it anyway. I might try my hand at traditional inking.. because digital inking is hella hard @_@;

I complain so much when I use non-oekaki programs... ehhee.. sorry... :blush:

Finished: August 11, 2008
Time: 6 days? XD...
Tools: tablet
Program: openCanvas

I will now proceed with...
a) experimenting with oC to find my beloved tool
b) experimenting with a different more interesting style or
c) contest whore it up in a formulaic style that'll hopefully appeal to the masses

No kidding. The lineart can be a hassle to get down to. I would imagine that you awfully spent so much in getting it in before coloring it. I got to say that this is well worth the time you put into to. I like the subtle lines within the water and the balance within the color shading. Excellent work. *gives a 10/10 score sign*

Truly amazing water and clouds .. and I agree, they are not "the easy things" to make!

Your color choice and the highlighting set a wonderful tone! Well done.

Are you using Painter? ... Do you not like the Inking (pens, etc) abilities of that program?

I was using openCanvas, but my gripe wasn't so much with the inking tools, but moreso with the fact that drawing at large canvases is so difficult D:.

I see. But I suppose that is all part of growing your ability .. you think? After you have struggled through a few more, they will seem more and more easy. And in your case, the effort is definitely worth the time invested. I look forward to your next items!

I really like it! I LOVE the hair! this is exactally why I made it a fav! Its creative. SO, i can use it as an idea boost when I try to create something new. Im not planning on coppying, its just that if i spend a couple hours on this website, typing in random things and browsing through art, ideas start to jump right into my head like Popcorn! Pretty wierd, huh? any way I like his eyes, it haunting and mysterious.

This is absolutely amazing. I add it to my favorites IMMEDIATELY.
The stormy scenery in the background is absolutely stunning.
The ocean waves look like rolling silk and the guy looks(as usual with manga/anime) impossibly gorgeous.♥

I would love to know how you did that and with what tools if you had the time.
