Drowkaki was finally upgraded to Poteto 5.1 then to Wax Poteto. A much needed upgrade after so many years without change and with all these bugs plaguing us. We had to trash our custom MODS but it seem that wax poteto include some of the stuff we had. Avatar(go in your profile) and picture uploading. It also come with some new features as well. The most important one is to be able to re-touch everything, including SHI-PAINTER pictures , non animated oekaki and uploaded stuff. I'm sorry we didn't do this upgrade sooner. Now the board is pretty much lifeless, but i hope now that approving new accountsl became optional, that some life will return around here on this fantasy-only oekaki board.

Had a song with an image in my head, this isn't done yet...and this isn't exactly the image but hey gotta start somewhere. Using the mouse is definately different and it takes a long time because you have to be so careful

darkrose @ Tuesday, January 4th 2005, 9:55 PM
Interesting... the sloppy lines and colroful shading are reall quite cool. I like it. The hair is nifty, too... I'm not sure, but it's almost like there are different styles of coloring and drawing actually within this piece. It's rather, well, cool... hard to say it otherwise. It's interesting in a good way.

Starisan @ Tuesday, January 4th 2005, 10:13 PM
Thanks for the comment, some of things are going to be added and changed stilll since it's not done yet.

Carbuncle @ Tuesday, January 4th 2005, 10:29 PM
I agree with DarkRose this pic is very awesome! I love sketchyness!! I hope you finnish soon...

Starisan @ Wednesday, January 5th 2005, 3:21 AM
Thank you too for the comments! I always enjoy what people have to say:)

celestial crou @ Wednesday, January 5th 2005, 4:13 AM
YEA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Starisan drawing! You seem to have kept your drawing style dispite using a mouse. The 'sketchyness' (cant remember what our prof. called it) in the pants shows off all the creases. My favorite part is the hair in this one. I love the different tones and lines used. ok i lied. i love the eye too. Their tied as favorites. The eye is just awsome. You did a fantastic job detailing it dispite its small size.

catboi incubus mishi @ Wednesday, January 5th 2005, 4:33 AM
Now, I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but this isn't fantasy - I noticed in your comment that you're not finished, I certainly hope you add in a fantasy element. The sloppiness of her back and leg area bother me, though, perhaps you can go back and clean them up. I do love her hair and the detail you put into the way it's up in the barrette. (:

Totenmaske @ Wednesday, January 5th 2005, 6:31 AM
Well I personally like the style I have been seeing in the images you have tried to post (even though I gave you a warning ? I personally see a lot of talent in your work) certainly at the moment there is no fantasy ? but I believe you will work that into the image. To be truthful, and this is going to sound rather odd, but this character reminds me of ?The Woman Wrapped in the Sun? in a few of the images by William Blake. Rather odd to suggest that, especially since the image is not completed yet ? but it has style and well I think oddly? ;3

But anyway I personally like what I see, even though there is a sense of ?sloppiness,? in the colouring and well maybe in the slope of the back (though I don?t think it really is that bad, personally I was expecting you to bring out some wings from the back). Now on the subject of using a mouse, it is hard to get used to at first, there are though quite a few artists on the board and other places that use the mouse exclusively. So don?t think it as a crutch, you just have to work at it and over time you will improve. I like the quick pose dolls you make btw that I see in animation.

There are some issues that you may want to do though ? like clean up some of the rough loose line art and colouring. But so far I like the odd style that this is presenting so far. Keep working on this image! I will comment further once this is completed.

oni shi @ Thursday, January 6th 2005, 6:05 PM
i like the wings, its hard to use a mouse it takes more time but if u are carefull with the line art then its much easyer to do, i know i used a mouse for a ver long time and finally got a tabby a year or two ago

AnimeCanuck @ Thursday, January 6th 2005, 7:10 PM
I like this, especially her cheek. I can feel the emotion coming from this, but for some reason it's not exactly EMINATING from it.

Getting used to drawing with a mouse... did you used to have a tablet? What happened to it?

This is a bittersweet picture... Very nice.

Starisan @ Friday, January 7th 2005, 1:33 PM
UUmmm, thanks for all the comments. No I've never had a tablet, I meant in general because this is my first expirience drawing with the mouse, although I got some practice because my first attempts to post here were accidentially deleted (my computer wouldn't save them...and then i accidentally spammed so I deleted those).

Starisan @ Saturday, January 8th 2005, 4:39 PM
well, first drawing done. Pretty happy, I agree that there isdefinately some sloppyniess I need to work on but overall I think I'm gonna like using the mouse once I get used to it. Thanks everyone (esp. Toten) for their help and I just wanted to apologize again for spamin the board. Cheers to all!

Ok 1)I classified this as adult because he's not wearing very much other than a loincloth
2) Please do NOT tell me what is wrong with this picture. Somethings have happened in \"the real world\" as I like to call it and all I've been getting lately is all the negative crap. Don't want it. Instead I find it MORE helpful if you would tell me what I did good or improved on. Hello I have eyes too, I can see my mistakes plain as day. I'm my own worst critic. I'm dead serious about this. No this is NOT A RANT. I'm making this clear.

As for my picture, yes I do see he has no nipples. Why? B/c he wasn't born in an embryo and he was geneticly altared. Yes his hair is a little weird. and so is that loincloth looking-thing. One leg is over the other just incase you didn't relize it..

Now, to help you understand this picture----- the feathers represent memories that don't exist but they're there and they're also lost memories from his past life when he was a god. The feathers on on the ethreal plane so insome case they arn't there ither but yet again they're there. (there is no spoon-gag) My character Damon had a tough life.
Please sit back and relax as you read a \"brief\" story about him.

Damon is the reincarnation of the once living god known as Daemon (pronounced -die-A-mon) A few Scientists decided they wanted to bring back this god to find their Goddess Pryrinus (pr-I-rin-us), but the scientist found out he was too powerful to sustain a physical body for them to control so they tampered with his genes. He had to find the Goddess Pryrinus before his 19th cycle or he'll die. His \"mother\" and his \"father\" were the rulers of Olokoss (the 3rd planet of his solar system) like king and queen of the planet. His \"father\" died in a war with the near by planet Solnura and his \"mother\" was assassinated in front of him at his 6th cycle. He than was transfer to a military base called Head Quarters (HQ) It was HQ that killed both his \"parents\" just so they could have him but he doesn't know that, yet. He doesn't even know that he was born in a lab. He learned to control his power at an incredible rate. Damon also met his rival there, Orion ?Pyro? Okuribi, they both became to what we know as \"5 star generals\" the highest-ranking officer you can get to. Now on to Damon's personality, He's very quiet, too quiet sometimes but talks when needed and to throw insults at Pyro. Damon is very arrogant and knows something?s up with HQ but he can't place a finger on it. He's also very intelligent. Damon is also very deep emotional but acts like he has none. Damon has a hard time dealing with love because he's never been in contact with love EVER. Forms of friendship, yes, but love no.

So you see, because he had never been associated with love, he feels much agony and pain. Why I gave him black feathers other than they were \"empty memories\". He's also actually sleeping.
Ok sorry for writing all of this. And thank you for those of you who read what I wrote, I bow to you all. I worship you.

I love the pose! So dynamic and interesting! I like the feathers falling, they add deph and prettiness to the pic, its very nice. I like his hair style, not something you see everyday which is good!

KHatch @ Tuesday, January 4th 2005, 8:04 PM
I actually couldn't find mistakes. The only things that beef me have nothing to do with mistakes but with your style as it's different from mine.
I'm so in love with the feathers! They're gorgeous! The pose is really nice, too, and his hair is just awesome. So soft!

Starisan @ Wednesday, January 5th 2005, 3:25 AM
wow, that's a very elaborate and well thought out story. He looks as if his sleep is slightly troubled, is he dreaming about his past? I love the feathers and the way you made his hair have featheriness too. great job with his skin too, I get a sense that it is warm and velvety smooth... I just like the whole package, and it is nice to get some idea where certain pieces are coming from.

darkrose @ Wednesday, January 5th 2005, 3:56 AM
I really love how you did the feathers, and this whole picture was clearly VERY well thought out by your story and description. Interesting pose, too... why that one I wonder? I love the shading on his hair and, as I said, the feathers (and the feather effect to his hair) is great.

Kaede @ Wednesday, January 5th 2005, 8:31 AM
I love the feathers, and his hair, and the over all pose. Its very nifty, and then the color choices rock. =D

AnimeCanuck @ Thursday, January 6th 2005, 7:06 PM

You know, this guy's stocky shape reminds me of how Wendy Pini draws her elves in ElfQuest. Check her out, eh?

Darkrose @ Monday, January 3rd 2005, 5:59 AM
ooh, too cool. I really love the concept of this picture, and the black dress/white hair is strikingly beautiful, as well as the white dress/black hair. Also the use of differing skin tones was a nice touch. The poses are lovely and the expressions (calm, serene) are good too.

Kamourian King @ Monday, January 3rd 2005, 11:51 AM
the hair is really well drawen and i love the dresses... ^^

Kaiera @ Monday, January 3rd 2005, 10:24 PM
"Opposite" pics always interested me quite a bit :) I like how even their skin tones are contrasted....really gives that opposite feel. The bg seems a bit rushed though o.o Maybe using different colors for each side, such as light blue for the "light" and purple for the "dark, would make it a little less bland. Personally, I like color in the bg :D Aside from that though, I like this image alot ^_^

KHatch @ Tuesday, January 4th 2005, 8:07 PM
This is nice. I like the dress design, and the colour scheme. I tried this idea once, but did not pull it off as well as you. The grey background is like a blending of the stark opposites. It brings the piece together well. Nice job!

celestial crou @ Wednesday, January 5th 2005, 4:39 AM
Wow. i enjoy looking at opposites. so all is well. I the black dress woman has a sephy hairstyle. the shading and highlighting are added with a light touch. The dresses are very creative. One sleve skin tight and has fasionable holes and the other is like most of the stuf i wear. Long open and bell shaped. The skin colors of the woman are unique in the way that i dont see many opp pics go as far as opp skin color. A very nice touch. my onely prob is the BG. I dont like the face that the women have "auras". Though for this pic perhaps it was ment to be that way?

AnimeCanuck @ Thursday, January 6th 2005, 6:56 PM
I love the simple, elegant gowns. Everything about these two is elegant! I love the skin tone of the elf on the right contrasting with her beautiful black hair.

An amazing piece! ^_^

AnimeCanuck @ Thursday, January 6th 2005, 7:04 PM
That was so neat to see how you did this! A few questions for you though:

1) How do you colour like that? You used solids over the lines, and then erased... at least that's how it appeared in the annimation. How did you know where to erase? Really neat way of colouring, by the way.

2) How did you blur things? I've never seen anything like a blur tool with the oekaki program I've been using (the middle one).

Again, a very lovely picture!

Kaede @ Saturday, January 8th 2005, 10:44 PM

Your tree looks okay. I wouldn't worry about it. Her eyes and tattoo are neat. And the grass looks well done.

She looks quite content.

wow, youre getting better really fast ^^ awesome. i love the face paint stuff over her eyes. and the eyes look pretty cool too ^^;

Lady_Sea @ Sunday, January 2nd 2005, 9:24 PM
Oh wow!! I love the coloring on this, especially the shading and lighting. She has really nifty looking eyes, green irises, red pupils. Really neat combo. I like the tattoo art on her face. It's really fitting to this character. Good job.

Darkrose @ Sunday, January 2nd 2005, 10:18 PM
Ooh, I like the snow in the background. It seems a litle choppy, maybe some serious blending could make it look more nifty, but I still like it. Good attention to the depth of the background, too, with all the pockets of green and the hills where roots go and such. I love the green eyes on that drow, and the facial markings are nifty. Her hair seems a little too together, maybe draw some more strands in it like you've got with the bangs there... that might help. But the lineart is crisp and nice looking and I love the eyes, good job getting them the right sizes for their respective locations. So overall great job!

Kamourian King @ Monday, January 3rd 2005, 11:52 AM
i really like that tatoo ^^ and try useing water color for the whole Bg, itll look better ^^

Starisan @ Monday, January 3rd 2005, 11:28 PM
I just watched the animation of this, in the afternoon and I thought it was really cool. I noticed lots of details that I didn't notice off the bat. I think your highlighting is great and I love the color of her hair. She looks very pensive.

Carbuncle @ Tuesday, January 4th 2005, 3:05 AM
ohh yeah finall a drow!! I like it the tatoo should have been done in Water color though... you might have considered drawing shines in the eyes also the hair is pretty good although the piece that is hanging down looks kinda like playdough...but it reall is a good pic!!although the tree is funky it is good to have a funky tree every once in awhile!! Keep it up!!

KHatch @ Tuesday, January 4th 2005, 8:15 PM
Nice design. The tattoo(?) is interesting, and the shading on the piece is good, it goes with the theme. My only concern is that the eyes have no highlight to them, no sparkle, so the drow seems a little...lifeless. It's a bit creepy X.x

celestial crou @ Wednesday, January 5th 2005, 4:49 AM
nice face and eyes. A very interesting color combo. The face marking is cool too. I like the snowy atmosphere but i think your need a couple more details to pull it off. For instance the solid blue BG could use some speckles of white. and the ground could use areas of a more complete white then others. Or were you going for a frost as apposed to snow?

Basil @ Thursday, January 6th 2005, 11:58 PM
Her hair is quite unique. =o I really like the shading that you incorporated into the facial tattoo, and her eyes are quite nice as well. Lovely image. Bravo!

This is different from your usual pieces. He's happy. Or sorta. I dunno. It seems a lot cleaner and more finished, and the lineart is nice and solid. The thicker outline to the body with the smaller lines for inside detail is a nice touch. Very cool.

celestial crou @ Wednesday, January 5th 2005, 4:56 AM
wow. I LOVE this one. I think this is my favorite so far. The face is wonderful. The variations of line emphasize the shape of his face and upper body. The skin tones and shading/ highlighting create depth within the thicker outline. Evpecially with the hair. The hair is AWSOME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!And the bg is wonderful for this. An almost smeared approach that also adds action. My only question is whats the red?

Kamourian King @ Wednesday, January 5th 2005, 11:11 AM

Harlequin @ Saturday, January 1st 2005, 10:07 AM
Well, I know a little bit of what happened. And I've gotta say, I can see how it'd be damn depressing, but don't let that cloud of saddness stick around too long. It's harder to move on if you dwell too long. Though I'm really one to talk about that...

I think my favorite part of this...is the condensed breath. See, that's the type of thing I would forget, and it's those little details that just make an image look right. I like the snow gathering on the tops of the wings, and the flaps of the box, sort of shows how long this little guy has been outside. I love the fur markings, and with a subject so small I personally think it's a bit difficult to get a decent amount of detail as well as color depth in. But on both fronts you've done an excellent job. I like the piece, it's really well done, what inspired it...well, not so much.

Feel better soon Ghis, just don't stay broken up over it for too long.

Aw. I'll keep you in my prayers ;_:. I hope whatever is wrong gets better.

This is really such a depressing pictures. I'm back on my kitty obsession and I want another kitten ;_:. The snow was really nicely done. It has that frostly cold look to it with the blue mixture. The sign behind the kitten was also done well. It has this tattered, beaten up city street like look to it. Did that make sense?
Nicely done. *steals the free kitten*

Starisan @ Monday, January 3rd 2005, 11:32 PM
It looks like you were feeling lonely, I'm sorry if that's the case. I think this image has a beautiful glow to it and the ralism is great. The box definately has depth and the Kitten seems to have good substance in the box. Great technique and a powerful feeling that comes across.

KHatch @ Tuesday, January 4th 2005, 8:19 PM
I already told you what I think. =)
I like this piece, though. The emotion is well expressed and the kitty is well drawn. The taped up note is just wonderful, but yet so so sad.
I like it. It's sad, but I like it.

celestial crou @ Wednesday, January 5th 2005, 5:02 AM
indeed. This is depressing. Such a cute little kitten. Kinda reminds me of my cat when he was a kitten. Malnurished and pitiful and yet the only thing he wants is to be loved. This is a very emotional piece.

The snow is colored nicely. adding varaitions. The old box is ...well..old and ...a box. Nice job shading the box and creating the soggy falling apart apearence. and the bricks and sign are shaded nicly as well.

Kawaii! I think I would laugh if I understood the inside joke, but they are best left unsaid, eh? XD. The poses are really good. They're not stiff or anything of that sort, just really relaxed, like they would be in real life. You did a nice job on the coloring as well.

Starisan @ Monday, January 3rd 2005, 11:34 PM
Heh, this is a mishevious one. Good highlights on the hair and very good hands. Just wondereing, did the one on the chair lose a slipper? I like the wat you did the fabric under her, it seems very accurate. I also want to thank both you and totenmaske for giving me another chance when I spammed the board and I am very sorry that I did.

celestial crou @ Wednesday, January 5th 2005, 5:10 AM
I thnk i shall have to leave these two alone soon. *snickers* Nice poses. and ...expressions. LOL Did windy get her hair highlighted?

Harlequin @ Thursday, January 6th 2005, 6:17 AM
...SO MUCH PURPLE AND GREEN!!! GAH!!! *rubs at her eyes* Jeez...color abuse Windy, color abuse. lol I kid, I kid. Nice lineart, though Kari's face looks a little odd. The eye is a little too close to the side of her face I think. Though I like the solid coloring...but there's one thing I notice. Some colors have stark shading, like the box and Kari's shirt, while others have really subtle shading, like the skin on both of you, and the greys used for Kari's tail and ears. Of course that's just little stupid stuff I seem so capable of picking out. lol

Basil @ Thursday, January 6th 2005, 11:49 PM

Kari Maxwell @ Saturday, January 1st 2005, 4:31 AM
Aww.. 'Tis Dhell. ^^ The galleries still work, and I'm sure Windy saved the pictures of him in there. He's so cute. lol I love Dhell. ^^

Darkrose @ Saturday, January 1st 2005, 9:24 AM
Cute! I espeically love the overlong sleeves... his eyes seem just a tad too low, although that's easily enough fixed, and they're well drawn. It's also beautifully shaded, although the hair might use a little more blending, but other than that... beautiful work. Keep going!

Kamourian King @ Saturday, January 1st 2005, 4:46 PM
awwww Dhell ^^ how cute, and that green animal, thing ::huggles::: it is so cute, Windy will love this ^^

Carbuncle @ Saturday, January 1st 2005, 5:41 PM
okay it still isn't done but I gotta get to school...O_o! (yeah on a saturday) any ways any tips on the background are heartily welcome!!

oni shi @ Sunday, January 2nd 2005, 12:48 AM
wow i love his shirt and pants, the shadeing is messy yet pleasing to my eyes and i like the soft light colors in contrast with the darkness of dhell.

Kari Maxwell @ Sunday, January 2nd 2005, 2:53 AM
Kamourian, the "green animal thing" is a Carbuncle... it's a Guardian Force from the Final Fantasy games. Mostly known from Final Fantasy VIII.

windblade @ Sunday, January 2nd 2005, 3:51 PM
*takes a deep breath* Ieeeeee, Dhell! Poor dearie, he looks so confused! But at least he's not bleeding =3 Thanks a lot, Carbuncle!
heh... everyone draws the forehead-thingie like a gem. Weird!

AnimeCanuck @ Sunday, January 2nd 2005, 4:33 PM
The folds of Dhell's tight black shirt are perfect! So are his proportions! Excellent and cute. ^^

Lady_Sea @ Sunday, January 2nd 2005, 9:44 PM
Aww, this is really cute! The expressions is really cute too. You did a nice job on drawing carbuncle ^_^ ( that's the cutest summon!). The only thing that bothers me is the slightly messy linework. Other than that, the coloring is fine. Good job ^_^

Darkrose @ Sunday, January 2nd 2005, 10:24 PM
Hmm... nice background. It looks a tad sloppy, but that's ok. You can still clean up some edges and things, just fix the bleeding against the wall with the scarf and the wardrobe and pay the same attention to shading on the background as you did with the figure, because that's still fantastic. And he has no feet! <{0.0}>

Carbuncle @ Tuesday, January 4th 2005, 10:27 PM
Although Carbuncle is in the Final Fantasy series a carbucle is also in dungeons and Dragons! (although I don't like the armadillo style portrayed there...) *just a tidbit*

celestial crou @ Wednesday, January 5th 2005, 5:14 AM
BG looks fine to me so i can only assume you got your advise. The figures are correct and all. Though Dhell?'s face is a little low. other then that nice! A very interesting pretty kitty thing.

Harlequin @ Thursday, January 6th 2005, 6:06 AM

So...obviously I like the whole Carbuncle idea...now if only it where Cerberus...XD!! You know...I have an idea from this piece...SUCH AN IDEA!!! lol It has to do with Dhell though...maybe I'll draw that...doesn't fit with his character at all...but still...I love the idea...yes. So...I like Dhell's clothing, his pants make me think of him as a raver. lol Or at the very least one of those depressed coffee shop poets.

Basil @ Thursday, January 6th 2005, 11:47 PM
I wish I had gotten a carbuncle for Christmas...! <3 Too cute!I really like his torso and arms, especially his right hand and wrist. Poor guy's so confused. Adorable!

Comments and critiques and like...suggestions, they are always welcome.

Olsie @ Friday, December 31st 2004, 10:31 PM
There should be a lot of different kinds of flowers in the background... xD just a suggestion.
His visable arm looks alittle bit lumpy; you may want to flatten it alittle once you get back to this :)
I love your characters face; it shows great atyle :)

Ghislain WildCat @ Saturday, January 1st 2005, 7:54 AM
I like it pretty much so far. Can't wait to see it colored! ^w^

Oh! and I like the wing design! pretty original, I think!

Darkrose @ Saturday, January 1st 2005, 9:27 AM
mmm... scribbles. I like it so far, although the arm closest to us looks a little something, not sure. Uneven, maybe, you could try to make the forarm and the upper arm more straight and even them out a little. Other than that, the hands, wings, and eyes look really good. Welcome, keep going!

Kamourian King @ Saturday, January 1st 2005, 4:48 PM
that is really good ^^ i love the char disine... cant wait to see this done

BreeWinde @ Sunday, January 2nd 2005, 3:32 AM
Thankyou for the nice comments. I am okay with lineart, and horrible at coloring. I am not used to coloring on the computer, so its something i need to get used to, but I wasn't like, horrified by the product, though I wish I was better at coloring. Alas, some things take time.

My b-day is tomorrow (Jan. 2nd) But I will try and draw another picture for tomorrow, and comment some more. <333

AnimeCanuck @ Sunday, January 2nd 2005, 5:22 PM
Great pose. I like how it's all solids and you avoided lines. The folds in the shirt look the best.

Lady_Sea @ Sunday, January 2nd 2005, 9:59 PM
I really like the lack of line art in this picture. I like how it's just colored and very neat without any lines. Th eonly thing that bothers me is the bendy-ness of the arm facing us. It bends upwards strangely. Another thing is is that a background could have been put in to compliment the pretty character. Like a garden or forest. But what am I complaining about, I find bg's the hardest part to draw in a picture XD. Lovely work!

Darkrose @ Sunday, January 2nd 2005, 10:27 PM
Ooh, me likies. I especially like the shading on his pants and hair... and good job with fixing the arm. I like it a lot now. The whole thing is very cute and colorful, and the multiple varied shades used to add depth are really quite appealing. Good job adding texture with that, as well, with the large smooth wings (do they actually attatch to the body, or do they float behind? Either way would be a cool story...) to the wrinkled brown shirt. He looks very casual. Great job!

Kamourian King @ Monday, January 3rd 2005, 11:54 AM
that style is so kool you colored in ^^ i like seeing other do the no line art style once in a wile ^^

this looks wonderful done^^ good job

Starisan @ Monday, January 3rd 2005, 11:39 PM
This one has a very distinctive style to it. It seems like a thoughtful piece. I like the style of the wings because they seem to have a very elegant shape. My only question is about how they are attached. You use very vibrant colors that are effective, a consistant color pallete. cool!

Carbuncle @ Tuesday, January 4th 2005, 12:47 AM
I like this pic the shading is awesome and I love the folds of the shirt and the purple hair his hand bothers me though it looks a little bent in a wrong way and the thumb is soo little compared to the rest of the fingers the background is just orange but there is nothing wrong with that (to me anyways) but I have often had comments to make better backgrounds but I really like the no background thing *^_^*

celestial crou @ Wednesday, January 5th 2005, 5:18 AM
wow. All solids. The shirt hes wearing is very well made. The shading and highlights really show the light source. I think i like the wings best. NEATO!

Harlequin @ Thursday, January 6th 2005, 5:50 AM
Oooh...lineless. I love lineless...though I've never done it. lol Solid coloring and lineless art just seem to go hand in hand. Maybe that's why I've never tried a lineless piece...I suck at solid shading. lol The sherbet looking background color just...well it makes me smile. lol For some reason this just makes me think of an old game character in close up. It's sorta grainy, not terribly detailed, solidly shaded...but still looks good. Interesting...very interesting.

Basil @ Thursday, January 6th 2005, 11:39 PM

is not finished now!? It's simply gorgeous! I love the shading on the hair and, well, everything actually... and the Egyptian influence in outfit (especially the inclusion of the scarab there...) and hair as well as form chosen. The wings, the lion's body, and dark hair in that style... the whole things screams 'EGYPT' which is really nifty. Like I said, I love the shading... on her torso, the gold collar and bracers, and wings and rump... just wow. If it's not done now I don't know what could possibly be done to make this look more finished and COOL.

BreeWinde @ Friday, December 31st 2004, 7:22 PM

Wow! I really like the idea of a sphynx centaur! You did a pretty good job at drawing one too! Plus, the lighting and coloring are REALLY nice.

Maybe I should draw her with Cleo (my own sphynx-anthro character) one day?

Lady_Sea @ Sunday, January 2nd 2005, 10:05 PM
Amazing work. The line art and the coloring is just absolutely superb! I like the lil glowing highlights on her shoulder and end too ^^. The shading is so well done. This is just beautiful work, especially the desert and pyramid in the bg. The wings are really something to look at as well. I like how you did the varying colors of the feathers from a tan to a golden. This is a really awesome character design. Excellent work, especially on the gold jewelry.

Kaiera @ Monday, January 3rd 2005, 10:51 PM
Lovely lovely indeed :) beautiful hair.....but I think what really catches my eye are the wings. Masterfully done. Excellent solid shading to boot.

Carbuncle @ Tuesday, January 4th 2005, 12:40 AM
awesome character!! I lurve centaur people!! I love tte whole thing except the wings they might be a lil bigger if they were to carry her anywhere!!

celestial crou @ Wednesday, January 5th 2005, 5:21 AM
I LOVE THIS! the sphinx is awsome! I love egyptian stuff. But with a hint of Assyrian. The figure could also fall under a Lamasu statue.The hair is very egyptian and the wings are SO cool. The BG is origional. The fact that its all in watercolor empaasizes the figure all the more. Very cool.

(Edited on January 5, 2005, 5:25 am)

Harlequin @ Thursday, January 6th 2005, 5:45 AM
Ooh man...this makes me wanna draw that sphinx girl I did back before the board got consumed. lol Hmm...maybe I'll draw her again sometime...yeah...maybe maybe.

I love the cel shading here. Solid cel shading even. I personally just can't work in solids. You've got a nice sense of depth working here. I love how the wings change to that gold color at the ends. That's always a nice touch to have. The desert background with the pyramid though a little stereotypical of egypt are a nice touch. Very nice overall. I love the whole idea of the Sphinx...and of course...the riddle of the Sphinx. It's amazing how few people actually know the riddle and the answer. But not the point. lol Nice image, and egyptian inspired ALWAYS wins!

Chime @ Wednesday, January 19th 2005, 7:21 PM
Gorgeous. I adore the coloring on this, especially the way you add a touch of watercolor (yes?) . Though the lineart is slightly choppy, and the color bleeds in a few spots, this is amazing. I especially like her hair, (Head and tail).


Queen_Godzilla @ Sunday, February 6th 2005, 3:25 AM
Sphinxataur, eh?

Good: Lovely character design. I don't think I've seen one of these before. It utilizes gold and tan very well. I just wish we could see more of her bodily structure. Her legs are a mystery right now. I love her demure expression and just how her entire posture is arranged too. Very Egyptian-like.

One thing I'd like to see improved in this piece is her arm length. Her arms are just a bit too long, from where I'm sitting. They seem out of proportion with her body. Also, it seems the hindquarters are raised very high when they shouldn't be. I dunno.

Pitdragon @ Thursday, December 30th 2004, 9:07 PM
Like where this is going. I am determined to have a more "realistic" art style, and this looks similar to some of my stepping-stone pics for that, where I too have used some FF CG to help. (yah, I know my Oekaki work looks like I'm in 6th grade all over again ^_^; ). It looks like you're gonna have some nifty cloud/fog/steam to the left there. I wanna see how that turns out too!

BreeWinde @ Friday, December 31st 2004, 7:41 PM
His eyes look wonderful, hun. I would suggest blurring the nose a little, or something though, because you have so many smooth lines, and then the nose is so sharp, it throws a lot of the picture off. Other then that, great job. <3

Darkrose @ Sunday, January 2nd 2005, 10:29 PM
Woah! It completely changed! That's kind of a trip... still love the shading on the nose, though. His eyes could be a bit darker (the whites are never really white, you know) if you're going for a purely realistic look, but I really like this. Kinda thew me that the whole thing up and changed, though... heheh.

Kamourian King @ Monday, January 3rd 2005, 12:04 PM

ChronosKit @ Tuesday, January 4th 2005, 5:38 AM
Wow! I watched the animation of this, and found it fascinating how you switched the picture! Kudos!~ The little crescent on his forehead could be a tad bit bigger though,a nd I love his eyes, although I agree that if you are going for a realism effect that you should darken the whites of the eyes a bit. Also, his ear looks like it could take a tad bit more shading. I love his cheek markings, and the pouty looking bottom lip!

celestial crou @ Tuesday, January 4th 2005, 7:22 AM
Starisan- *HUGS* HELLO!!!!! i was getting worried that i would never hear from you again. YEA!!!!!!!!!!!!!! your here now!

Yes comment away. I hate how this turned out. but i would love to hear improvement suggestions. Its not my "drawing style". (XD i have a drawing style now! Recently devoloped you see) But you cant say you suck at something if you only did it a few times. wait until you did something 100 times before you say you suck at it. then practive until 1000. If no improvement. then you really do suck at it and you should probibly quit wasting your time....LOL

Starisan @ Tuesday, January 4th 2005, 5:05 PM
yipee! well I watched the animation and I did like the start that you had on the original (sorry I know you'v heard that a few times), but I like this one too. The expression is great, pouty lip and all. He looks annoyed as he usually would be but it also seems like he's trying to be serious when he really wants to laugh. I magine him LOLing....You really captured his likeness well. The pelt is especially good and I see some really good highlights (smiles). The eyes are very effective too (they look round) but I would have to agree that the whites might be a little darker. I can't believe you only been using the mouse for a little while, your soo good. Good job!

Harlequin @ Thursday, January 6th 2005, 5:35 AM
lol Well Crou, had this been with actual tangible paint...I'm sure you would have been MUCH happier with it. I won't bother critiquing this...since...lol You already know exactly what I'd point out and all that, and I'm sure it's the same stuff that you're not happy with.

Other than that, it's really great. ^^

Skittles-chan @ Thursday, December 30th 2004, 8:51 AM
Awesome perspective. For some reason the legs really stick out to me. It seems like they're the most difficult part to draw when doing an image with such an angle, but you've done them masterfully. The folds in all the bits of clothing are really good too - again, I noticed the legs first, particularly around the knees, but the cape as well, especially how the fuzzy bit's been shaded.
I'd be a little afraid if that came down my chimney though.

Rigga Mortis @ Thursday, December 30th 2004, 7:16 PM
Windyyy. Your watercolours are so awesome. The folding and shading on that cape is so wonderful and I like studying it. :D Same with those...frost-curls (?) around his feet. That is a very interesnt and awkward-looking perspective to draw from, but I think you pulled it off perfectly. His eyes and expression are creepy, fitting really well with this image, and I like how his hand is supporting the bag. :D Really well-done, Windy.

Sweet! IThis definatly sets a different mood to the norm of christmas. Kinda like futurama and the santa-bot. Lol. then again i have this nightmare before christmas tune stuck in my mind. I like the diffferent perspective. But i would have liked to have seen a more toned sky.

Harlequin @ Thursday, January 6th 2005, 5:23 AM
Can I just say...I love the perspective on this one? The whole bottom of the feet up is just...SO COOL!! Now...I'm assuming he's standing on the equivalent of a skylight, and what has otherwise been called 'fur' is really the frost on said skylight. The reds in the cape are really nice, they really show a nice folding of the fabric where it's gathered around the neck. The white edging...well...the blue used on it certainly makes it look textured. Very interesting look. I really like it...just like I like those green pants. Seriously...I want a pair of pants in THAT color green now. In addition to being a gorgeous pair of pants...the shading does that textured thing. I really like how you do that, it just makes the clothing on the characters seem more real. Same thing with the shirt, more of that nifty texturing. Awesome contribution to the secret santa project Windy. It's very nice! It makes me smile like a not so sad panda! XD!!

xD is this the comic with Chris' aunt? Very funny pose. I love Tamp x3 I shall re-comment later!

Rigga Mortis @ Wednesday, December 29th 2004, 10:59 PM
That is such a perfectly comical expression and pose...the eyes! XD I've always adored that effect, the bigger pupil and the smaller one. That is some crazy hair and goggles, but not in a bad way, and his coat has a neat design.

Darkrose @ Thursday, December 30th 2004, 1:15 AM
heheh... it is a priceless expression. I really like that pattern you used on the right side of his shirt, that's really nifty. It looks a litle plain... like there's not enough detail to warrent the size of the canvas or something. I think it would look really nifty as a little avatar or something, which is something you can already do by just changing the size when you save it. It is totally nifty...

Kage Kitsune @ Thursday, December 30th 2004, 2:00 AM
FINISH!! I demand you to finish or Arsnic will turn him into a cookie next XD!! I love this so far Tamp is just so cute sometimes XD

LunarMnM2004 @ Thursday, December 30th 2004, 3:05 AM
Awww its kinda cute!
He looks phsyco

Skittles-chan @ Thursday, December 30th 2004, 8:57 AM
Mm o_o scary. His shirt does have a cool pattern though. I'd wear it. Only thing I can see so far is that the little shines on his goggles are all at different angles - very distracting. Though I do like that one on the right =3 as odd as it makes me feel for liking one specific highlight on some goggles.

Darkrose @ Thursday, December 30th 2004, 10:18 PM
DOH! I need to stop being such a dolt... ok, you rock. Sorry, not plain, very cool. Me likeis the shading... I'll go hide in my hole now <{T.T}>

ChronosKit @ Thursday, December 30th 2004, 11:12 PM
XP *kidnaps goggles* I love the half and half-ness of the picture, and how he has one yellow eye ^.^ Nice job on the hair!!

Jennifer @ Friday, December 31st 2004, 1:08 AM
Hee...that's a cute expression. I love those angry expressions. The different sized eyes really add to his crazed expression.

oni shi @ Friday, December 31st 2004, 10:34 PM
hahaha its so cute i love images like this they make me laugh, i really like the shadeing by the way. oooo and the background aswell

Ghislain WildCat @ Saturday, January 1st 2005, 8:03 AM
Hehehe! I really LOVE all the cartoony feel you gave to this pic! The background, the pose the expression! Priceless! ^w^

Kamourian King @ Saturday, January 1st 2005, 4:59 PM
TAMP!!!!! XD he looks so cute ^^ really kool olsie, and i cant wait to see the finished comic on DA ^^

AnimeCanuck @ Sunday, January 2nd 2005, 5:16 PM
That's definately a funny expression. Interesting style of colouring and shading. One crazy pic! XD

Starisan @ Monday, January 3rd 2005, 11:48 PM
This is an awesome expression! I watched the animation and I want to say great job. I didn't realize how many layers of sublte shading it took to get those shadows as right as they are. Keep up the good work!

celestial crou @ Wednesday, January 5th 2005, 7:32 AM
wow. Mass of color. and a very funny pose. It makes me think of a character right after they get hit really hard and get thrown in the sky. or some such anime nonsence. I like the use of color and the shading you've done. and the highlighting. Even though its a little chibi-ish you still added detail. And thats quite the action bg.

Harlequin @ Thursday, January 6th 2005, 5:11 AM
lol I love the chibi-esque quality of the whole figure. lol But...and this could just be be here, but that coat thing he's wearing...it makes me think of those nylon windbreakers joggers are overly fond of wearing. Then again...maybe that's just me. lol I love the shading and highlighting, it's all so textured looking. That's just nifty. That's right...I said it...NIFTY!! lol In this case of extreme expression, the thick lines REALLY do this a lot of justice. Very good picture...and that orange and yellow background just adds so much to the crazy expression. lol Damn I love this one, I do I do!

kyokurrychan @ Sunday, January 30th 2005, 5:01 PM
awesome expression. quite evil @_@

Queen_Godzilla @ Sunday, February 6th 2005, 3:16 AM
XD ... I like this. It really is something that can't quite be duplicated.

I like the way the shadows and highlights are utilized. Y'know, that kind of scratchy coloration you used everywhere. I dunno. It just made it feel more organic.

Then, of course, there's the expression. That sort of >:D thing going on there. I dunno. The kooky way the eyes look and the cartoony mouth and expression make me happy. It's pretty freaky.

Nice details too -- the goggles, the eyes, hair, jacket, ear shape, etc. It all works together really well. Heh.

>_< I know, Im sorry, Mel.

Darkrose @ Thursday, December 30th 2004, 7:17 AM
hmm... interesting... so the blonde one is a vampire and the red-haired one is about to become dinner? Heheh... Nice shading on his thigh there, I'd think that gloss effect would be other places too, like his shoulder and cheeks... other than that, great use of shading and the action pannels really tell a story. The position of the characters is a litle... awkward... for my tastes. But then again, I've never been a big fan of yaoi. Still nicely done, though!

Skittles-chan @ Thursday, December 30th 2004, 9:09 AM
Hmm vampires ^-^; The one thing that keeps distracting me is the random tan bits that I know are parts belonging to the blond one, but I cant figure out what parts they are, or what position would ever allow him to bend in that way. Also, the shading on the - sheets, I'm assuming - is different from that of what's on the flesh, and sometimes it's good to stay consistant with a style in a piece unless there's an effect you're trying to pull off. Also, the background is a little blank. If they're in a bedroom, there would be something around them, a nightstand or pictures or something of the sort.
Anyhow, I really like the shading and highlights on the hair, and I like the way you draw eyes. Also, the vampire's teeth look pretty cool in that small panel on the left ^^

Rigga Mortis @ Thursday, December 30th 2004, 7:22 PM
Ah, vampires...nice facial-shapes. The mouth of the red-haired one, and his eyebrow, look a little strange, but nothing too bad. I like how the blonde one is just peeking out from behind. X3 The blankets have some good folding and shading, and the highlihts on their skin is perfect.

ChronosKit @ Thursday, December 30th 2004, 11:13 PM
Shm-exeh! *steals the hair* I love it...its so long and red.... And the eyes are beautiful!

Kamourian King @ Saturday, January 1st 2005, 5:01 PM
very interesting ^^; vampires ne ^^ the anatomy feels alittle wrong to me, but sadly, thats the main style of anime now adays.....

Loki @ Tuesday, January 4th 2005, 1:55 PM
*grins* I like this, ALOT. (Loki has a vampire fetish) I like the shading on their hair, very simple but looks nice! I also like the close up shot of the 'soon to be' kill! Muahahaa!

celestial crou @ Wednesday, January 5th 2005, 7:36 AM
well i finnily came to comment.

o,O uh....thats quite a large hand covering the uh...."objectional" area. Though i am a little confused with the blanket and the arm. I dont know quite how he is positioned to get his hand at that angle. The nude's body is drawn nicely and i lobe the coloring of the hair and eyes.

Chime @ Wednesday, January 12th 2005, 6:17 PM

Although the coloringis slightly messy, its so coo~ooool *____*

I wuff the hair, very nice highlighting on the bangs.

I like the gesture feel to it right now. I look forward to when you add more. I think you did a good job with the perspective:)

I love how that dagger is coming out, his wings, and his hair and eyes. This is going to be lovely when you finish it. BTW Nice job on the hand...I wish I could draw a half decent hand lol.

I like how you coloured the hair. The headshape seems a bit off (not sure why) and the blade of the knife seems too flat. Try adding some reflection or something to it next time.

Sephie Strife @ Monday, January 3rd 2005, 12:43 AM
Omg, the way you colored the hair is simply awesome! X3 Finish it!! >w<

Starisan @ Tuesday, January 4th 2005, 4:55 PM
I like his hair a lot and you did a great job with the hand, they ar soo hard to do. The clothing has good volume too. cool!

Um...let me explain this pic a little. The blue eyed puppy is a Harlequin Great Dane. And we are in one of Drowtales Great Banquent halls. Harle is the one whose blindfolded and being directed to the door by Windy (hope you dont mind being added) in the BG. You can see them through the windows. Crou (me) is holding the present she will give to harle (which is the puppy).

Rigga Mortis @ Wednesday, December 29th 2004, 4:13 AM
Manical grin much? Not that it's a bad thing, of course. That Dane looks just wonderful, the details on the muzzle is really awesome. It's so cute, too, especially it's expression---it looks like something off-image has captured it's attention! The girl (Harlequin, I assume?) has a neat hat, and I like the way her hair falls. That background is rather intriguing, I want to see how it's coloured and shaded. :D

Harlequin @ Wednesday, December 29th 2004, 6:40 AM
I'll only say this once:


Gah, I've wanted one since I was a wee ickle Harle. But the parent types don't like the big dog beasts...so I have to wait until I'm out of the house to get my BIG puppy.

So...I'll comment more on the actual image when this is done. lol

The background in the windows rule! so pretty....
Though.. that smile kinda scares me...

GAH, I'm jealous of the way you drew that dog. You did it so well. T_T
That picture looks great. X3

Darkrose @ Thursday, December 30th 2004, 1:27 AM
Cute! I love the puppy, and you look so (maniacally) eager to be holding it! Beautiful sunset, it looks like it was done in watercolors (real ones <{^.^}>) And the 'falling banner' effect is rather funny... no one's home movies end up like they wanted to, eh? heheh. Great job.

ChronosKit @ Thursday, December 30th 2004, 7:46 AM
PUPPY!! *huggles and pets* Wheeeeeee I like ^.^

Kari Maxwell @ Thursday, December 30th 2004, 11:21 PM

I feel so USED! o.O
=p I always dreamed of being one of those helper dogs for the blind. That dane puppy is so cute, even if the bright blue eyes look a bit freaky! (I swear it wants my food... bad dog!)
Cool background, it's all glowy and stuff!

Happy birthday, o queen of the pillow weasels and eater of chicken!

Kamourian King @ Saturday, January 1st 2005, 5:05 PM
really sweet ^^ i like the doggy ^^ and the Bg alot, good job

oni shi @ Sunday, January 2nd 2005, 12:50 AM
ahh the puppy its so cute i love him! i must say i really like the way u draw eyes nice and big with a snazzy shape awsome

AnimeCanuck @ Sunday, January 2nd 2005, 5:10 PM
Cute. Great epression and lineart with your face. Cute dog, too. I think the dog's eyes could look more real, though. Nice background, nice overall! ^^

Carbuncle @ Tuesday, January 4th 2005, 1:16 AM
ohh this is a lovely present!! I love you big eyes they are soo full of detail!!and the smile is just soo cute!! the dog well... he looks a little constapated I think it is the eyes but it just..I like it anyway

Starisan @ Tuesday, January 4th 2005, 5:00 PM
Yeah! it's Celstial Crou! This a cool one too, I like the video camera REC and the space created by the falling banner. The puppy is very cute and well drawn, I wish I could draw animals as well as you. Your eyes are always very dramatic. I like that in the animation. I think the head space in the hat is just a little bit off but otherwise I'm glad it's there (my fav hat to see you in):) A gorgeous suset in the background too. Quite lovely.

Arsnic and Aubrey are the D&D characters for me and my adoptive (not really he's just a friend of mine we adopted each other) brother! ^_^ Arsnic is Aubrey's blood slave and the conversation goes as thus

Arsnic: Beeerrrr....*drool*
Aubrey: We don't have enough money for beer...(if we did we'd BOTH be drunk by now) gods I can't wait till your older...

and that's the conversation! I don't really want to give back story on the two on them right now becuase I'm still trying to sort it out, and tweak and such...Enjoy!!

He kinda reminds me of Naruto. X3

Darkrose @ Thursday, December 30th 2004, 1:29 AM
Heheh, yay finished! I really love the shading on the little one's hair, and the expressions are wonderful (the bright red looks a tad out of place, but hey) Great attention to detail in the background, too... like the little curls above the window and the cobbles on the street. 'Tis purdyful <{^ ^}>

Skittles-chan @ Thursday, December 30th 2004, 9:19 AM
The little girl ^^; is cute. I really like her hair now that it's coloured. The orange tips is nice.
I like the shading. Especially in the background, where it looks a little complex. Don't get me wrong, I really like the simplicity of the foreground as well. I still think the way the shirt is hanging off the girl's shoulder is cute ^^ And she looks way too young to be drinking. Tsk.

Argagrgrarr. This was just taking too long for me to get done, so I kinda just forced myself to color it so I could move on with my life. XD
In fact, I kinda forced myself into the entire thing in the first place. I've just been in such a rut and haven't been able to get anything out. o_O; Buuuut here it is, in its entire forced glory.
I don't really like it that much, I'm just glad I was able to poop out a halphway decent background for once.
So, anyway, I'd like to thank all of you for the nice comments and suggestions. This'd probably never have been finished if I didn't have the motivation.
Meh, Well, that's about all.

Totenmaske @ Wednesday, December 29th 2004, 1:27 AM
Watching the animation - I notice that you seemed to be in a slight slump before settling upon this image. Personally I think this looks rather good so far ? simply because it is a rough of the line art before you begin on the actual refinement. Now that being said, I have to say that the perspective is a little off in the terms of the floor (it being a rather rough background, I believe you were planning to refine that to look better anyway). But overall I like the whole idea that you are planning with this image ? the facial expression is actually more pleasing to me than the other characters you were going through before settling on this idea. The ear we see seems to be a little odd, prospectively that is (on the left side of the canvas). Other than that wonderful work so far ? really can?t say anymore other than I hope you get to finish this!

Skittles-chan @ Wednesday, December 29th 2004, 5:38 AM
I agree that the perspective with the floor and such might be a little off, but not by very much. With sketches it's a little hard to tell how the lineart's going to turn out, but one other thing I noticed is that his neck seems a little too small. Of course, I have no idea exactly where you were planning to put the lines, but it looks a little off.
Anyhow, I like the face so far ^-^ The ears are really well done

LunarMnM2004 @ Wednesday, December 29th 2004, 5:34 PM

Looks so cute!
The smiles perfect!

Darkrose @ Thursday, December 30th 2004, 1:31 AM
Wow, that lineart looks just fantastic... His face in particular is just beautifully done. Keep going! (I can never draw bar scenes... the floor, the table, the other patrons.. nothing's in the right place so I end up scrapping the project.)

ChronosKit @ Thursday, December 30th 2004, 11:17 PM
I like this ^.^ Its nice, but his right side((the left of the picture)) looks a little too skinny to me o.o; I dont know why...probly because of the width of his shoulders, I dunno... But I like the color(s) you used ^.^

Kamourian King @ Saturday, January 1st 2005, 5:10 PM

Olsie @ Saturday, January 1st 2005, 9:21 PM

I like the point of view so far; and obviously I can't wait until you complete the image :)

AnimeCanuck @ Sunday, January 2nd 2005, 5:03 PM
I really like the sepia tones! The wood floor looks so real! Nice and antique looking - including the costume designs. Awesome! ^^
To make the picture even BETTER, you could have continued on further to shading the characters and objects in the foreground with some more browns.

Seriously an excellent piece - keep it up!

Kaiera @ Monday, January 3rd 2005, 10:47 PM
such a cute smile! :D I love the shading on the floor so far, and the waitress is positioned perfectly. Finish!!

They're both cute, and for some reason I really like their facial structures. It might just be the shading, but it doesn't seem like you get to see many such realistically shaped faces. Kale's scales really do look impressive, and the hair is pretty cool too ^^ Their expressions are nice as well, and for some reason I'm really liking the way you did eyes in this image.

LunarMnM2004 @ Wednesday, December 29th 2004, 5:33 PM

You did a great job coloring and stuff!

Queen_Godzilla @ Thursday, December 30th 2004, 4:43 AM
Wow, KHatch. You really outdid yourself. Seriously.

Gah, wow. They seem to have their proper facial structures (i.e., Ike is rather long-faced like a proper shoujo bishounen dude.) I'm really, really glad you didn't overdo the Christmas stuff in here. Just a touch here and there that isn't really that noticeable. They're just so both well-colored and well-proportioned... and they look so much like themselves... and OH, the coloring *_* And... damn. I've ran out of things to say.

ChronosKit @ Thursday, December 30th 2004, 11:20 PM
This is really nice ^.^ I love how you drew the scales on his neck, arm, and part of his wing...and his hair O_O I wnat hair like that. The markings on the others face are awesome, and he has kewl wings too ^.^ Sorry, Im not one for keeping track of names >_>

Jennifer @ Friday, December 31st 2004, 1:17 AM
Oooh, what a lovely gift. You captured their playful boyishness. I think my favorite is Ike. He looks so calm with a hint of a mischievous side. Kale's smile makes me want to smile.

I wanted a challenge. My last picture, people said "you could have used a more dynamic pose" ... Well, I know I'm not the best at poses - in fact I'm pretty terrible. So I sat on that idea for a bit. Kern talked to me on ICQ. That's a rareity. He said, for a dynamic pose I should try something from a different angle, from above or underneath - so I thought I'd try underneath. I asked of what, he said of someone looking up. So... This elf guy isn't exactly looking up, more like leaning over and looking straight forward, but this was the pose I had in mind. It's animated, so you can se how I did this. It's not bad, but it's not the best either.

Comments and critiques please. Thanks!

AnimeCanuck @ Tuesday, December 28th 2004, 4:18 AM
Hmm... Now that I think about it... I'm surprised this only took me 45 minutes. It felt a lot longer to me. Wow. Sarah (someone I know in person) is right! I do draw fast. *blink blink* Does anyone have any opinions as to whether drawing faster or slower is better and why? (just out of curiousity)

Skittles-chan @ Tuesday, December 28th 2004, 4:29 AM
This is pretty good for such an extreme perspective. The shoulders are a little off, however, too low I think, and the face could use just a bit more work. The hair looks pretty good, too, so does the chest and stomach.
As for spending time on drawing, it varies from person to person. I know someone who can draw a picture just as well in an hour where the same exact picture might take someone else five or six hours. If you know that something looks very wrong, then keep working on it, or if you know how to apply more detail, then do it. The amount of time spent on a picture isn't a very good way to measure its quality.

Rigga Mortis @ Tuesday, December 28th 2004, 5:16 AM
Everything I could say has been said, I think. You did a good try and poses, though. I'm personally too gutless to branch out yet. The shoes are neat, I like the blues you used for them. :D

Totenmaske @ Tuesday, December 28th 2004, 6:14 AM
Well personally, drawing slower allows me to actually keep track of what is important in the image, what I want to get across in details as well as overall feeling in the final result. If you draw too fast, you tend to leave out all the details you wanted to get across - there are those that are fast artist of course, who get the point out rather quickly in their images - but I'm sure they will be the first to say, to bring quality to a piece, you must take your time and work on an image until you are completely positive that you have finished what you personally are capable of doing.

In this image, it seems you have been rather daring in positioning, though in the end one can say you may be practically mooning your audience. Though I could always suggest we are breaking the fourth wall with this angle, simply because the way you shaded the character in colouring around the legs gives the impression of the clothing being pressed against a surface? Overall I think you took a chance overall in this image. I think you could have worked a little bit, personally, on the line art ? simply to give a better feeling of the jeans, the black threadwork in the ?crack? just makes the image seem dirtier than needs be really ? a different shade of blue could have probably helped create a natural flow really in that sense. Overall though I think this was an interesting take on what Kern suggested to you. Personally I pictured him suggesting something like a lower perspective looking up onto the character. But overall interesting image in the end.

The colouring is nice, though it is not as defined as it could be, simply because there are so much white in the background, and the shading is more stark than it should be. But really that is simply my personal opinion. Very interesting though, the shoes could be a little more detailed but generally I think you have the idea of the body done rather well? though there needs to be some more work in the sense of natural folds created by the ?crotch? area. The fingers are correctly placed btw, and I do have issues with the sense of flatness to the partial face we see, but overall it looks interesting in the end. But to be truthful the torso of the body would need to be a little more defined in various areas. Really the issues I think I have most with this image, which would sum up what you think, are a lot of negatives I?m saying about the image so far, is simply the flatness. That?s all the overall sense of flatness. Keep up the experimenting though!

Darkrose @ Tuesday, December 28th 2004, 6:26 AM
Heheh, well that's one way to create a dynamic pose... Again, all critique has already been covered, so I'll just pass on my immense amusement and give my congrats on attempting (and to a great extent succeeding on) an extremely difficult pose.

Ghislain WildCat @ Tuesday, December 28th 2004, 7:53 AM
Heeey! Long time no see! I haven't got news from you even since that flash animation where you voice act as Senya with that toaster robot! XD

As for the pic, you do have a lot of courage to attempt drawing at this angle! And the lighting's pretty nice too!... but maybe next time you could try to make a background... ^w^; The pic seems a bit empty without it.

KHatch @ Tuesday, December 28th 2004, 8:18 PM
I think this is cool. I would have never thought of something like this. The only thing that bugs me is the face, for the same reasons that people have already addressed. It looks flattish and the shoulders area is kinda off. But the legs and arms/fingers are good. I like the "pressed against glass" colouring job. This is really neat. =D

Kage Kitsune @ Tuesday, December 28th 2004, 10:12 PM
I like the angle very muchley ^_^ the head seems kind of weird but I guess that's just the position. ^_^ very nicely carried out!

Thankyou all for your comments and opinions.

Totenmaske, thank you especially for giving some insight on time spent vs. quality of product. I think you have the right idea. The more heart and effort you put into it, the more it shows, and the more time you spend on a pic, the more likely you haven't forgotten a detail. *nods* Quite wise, indeed.

Again, THANKS! ^_^

OH how my beloved game series came to the GBA and how i wish i bought it.... For christmas came and went and there was no Breath of fire in my stocking....for ALL game stores were sold out.... *sigh* LET THE HUNT BEGIN! I shall have you my Ryu!

So .....how did your christmas go? Get everything you wanted?

AnimeCanuck @ Tuesday, December 28th 2004, 3:14 AM
I've never played Breath of Fire... I also didn't get everything I wanted. I meant to go out to get Burnout 3: Takedown for the PS2 with some Christmas money, but it's also sold out everywhere (and more than I thought. I didn't realize it was a new release) so I hope I can still find it used at the rental store for $40.

He has a nice happy expression. Those are really dark, thick lines for his eyes. Also, is that a scar or a tattoo on his forehead. Are you going to colour this?

Rigga Mortis @ Tuesday, December 28th 2004, 3:56 AM
Your style is really defined, Crou. :D My only nit-pick is that the size of the eyes distorts the shape of the face/head on the left (our right, his left) side. Otherwise, that is a really cute nose, and I like the shape of the mouth and teeth. I really want to see this all coloured.

Skittles-chan @ Tuesday, December 28th 2004, 4:03 AM
The eyes are pretty cool, but it seems a little awkward on the left, like it comes out too much. I could tell almost instantly who it was though =3 I've played all of the BoF games except this most recent one. The first few are great.

MUAHAHA!!! *does the happy pencil dance* I've already completed two pieces with them, one just for fun and to try them out and the other a nice commission piece. I'll put them on DA when I get them scanned (which is my 'personal website' in my profile thingy that pops up when you click on my name <{^.^}>) Anyway, yeah. Exciting. Oh, and lovely pic... *as I remember what the point of commenting is* lalala.

Oooh! Izzat Ryu from Breath of fire 2? ^w^ Very god job on the sunset background! I love the colors you used in it! And you also did nicely with the solids.
But maybe you shouldn't have made his eyes so big. ^w^; It seems like it deforms his face a bit. *prepares to receive any pointy object thrown in my direction*

celestial crou @ Tuesday, December 28th 2004, 11:27 AM
-Ghislain WildCat You know....if you really want to torture someone you dont use pointy objects....you use blunt or dull objects and salt. Perhaps lemon or ham juice.... LOL...

NO really. NOw that you mention it his face does seem a bit akward. But because my drawing style literly revolves around the eyes i think it was the face itself that is perhaps too small? Donno...this is not a question one should ponder at 6:30 in the morning.

*Throws cookies at Ghislain WildCat. * Thankyou for the advise!

Shamdu @ Tuesday, December 28th 2004, 12:57 PM
Wow, pretty!! The background is really well drawn, you conveyed the atmosphere very well, and the dragon is pretty.~<3

Totenmaske @ Tuesday, December 28th 2004, 7:52 PM
I was withholding on commenting on this image last night crou, simply because I didn?t know if you were truly finished with the image ? yeah I know rather silly of me ? but I personally liked the way it was coming out so I didn?t feel it would be ?just? if I made a full comment on an unfinished piece. What is interesting, only to me I suppose ? because I used to be a fan of the Breath of Fire series (was, mainly because after awhile of the same characters being reintroduced in each new game, a few new characters, but the same main who never seemed to develop over the series ? I began to feel cheated) is the fact that I didn?t know they put a cross type scar on his forehead, but apparently they thought that was an interesting thing to put into the GBA version. Which tempts me to go out and purchase it, if I can find it.

Other than that, I must agree you did an exceptional job overall ? even though the face has been said by a few to be a little off mainly because of the result of the eyes, I personally think this is one of the more recent images of yours that I personally like a lot. The background, particularly the sunset with the sense of dark foreboding clouds really is crafted rather nicely and the colours are very well blended to give a wonderful effect. The sea itself is adequate but really nicely carried by the slight reflection of the clouds and lighting.

I personally like the fact that you depended upon thin line work in this image for the two focal points in the canvas (the dragon form of Ryu and Ryu himself). I think the overall colouring and line art in Ryu is more polished though, mainly because I see a little colour bleeding in the dragon?s eyebrow as well as the yellow highlights seem a little to vibrant, generally it would be really nice to see some sense of texture ? though personally I think you were going for that fine cel-shading look overall. I do like the dragon; don?t get me wrong, I just feel that it isn?t as polished as Ryu.

Now I know you have heard a few negatives about Ryu?s face and the setup of his eyes, well the overly large sense of the eyes and the odd sense of spacing on the face. But to be truthful, the overall effect isn?t as overpowering as it has been made out to be. I personally like the overall look of him ? even the little detail of the cross scar that Capcom has recently introduced on his forehead. The skin and the clothing are fantastically coloured in my opinion ? the eyes are a little odd only in the sense of colouring approach compared to the rest of the character. The line art is fantastic, and the overall look of the eyes remind me somewhat of how Harlequin crafts them, which is a compliment btw. The colouring itself is very nice overall though in Ryu and that is what seems to make the image ? the fact that you put a lot of work in getting a sense of shading on the face and clothing brings everything to life. I particularly like the way you rendered the lower lip cress, but it is carried on in the slight colouring ? as if it fades away realistically from the line art point into colour. But that?s just me. Overall fantastic image crou, and I do hope you get a chance to own Breath of Fire.

KHatch @ Tuesday, December 28th 2004, 8:19 PM
I like the semisolid shading, and I LOVE the background. The lineart is pretty and the anime type face is well done. Yeah, the eyes are a little buggy but the way you made them is good, so I'm gonna ignore that.
Nice. =)

Skittles-chan @ Thursday, December 30th 2004, 9:26 AM
This looks really great now that it's finished ^^ I really, really love the water in the background; it's a little more realistic than bright blue or green. The sky looks very cool too, especially how the light is sort of seeping into the dark, like there's some kind of fire-storm type thing going on. The one thing that bothers me is how Ryu's hair is shaded solid, and nearly everything else in the image is watercoloured (which has enough various colours that I didn't even notice until just now.) But really overall, this looks fantastic ^^

Very interesting character design. His hair is so lovely, I had a similiar style once. :D That hand is superb, the shading and highlighting on the knuckles is a nice detail. What gets me most is the tinges of blue you've placed om his skin and clothing, which is red; the two contrast evenly, which is surprising with two such different shades. The coloured-outlines are also a nice touch, and the flames appear rather soft. This image is coming along wonderfully.

Darkrose @ Monday, December 27th 2004, 11:54 PM
Cool story. I like the fire effect, it's almost like ethereal fire, mistic fire, something like that. I also like his outfit, and how he sort of looks like a dragon himself with the spikey hair and the serpentine eyes. The stark white background looks a little funny, like it's unfinished (you can all kick me if it actually is unfinished) but other than that I like the pose, the shading, just about everything. Great work.

TigerHawk @ Tuesday, December 28th 2004, 2:43 AM

Actually The Dragon isn't "there" (there is no spoon) LOL It's just one of those things where it has double imaging. Crap like that. The size of the dragon is much larger than that, half the size of the once tall Twin Towers. But I like what you said I'll keep that in mind.

Or maybe it's just the lack of smile that makes it look that way.. anyway, he's immensely cute, excellent job on this one.

Skittles-chan @ Tuesday, December 28th 2004, 4:24 AM

Yay, it's done! Aww, lookit the mouth. The white poof and eding on the hat look really soft, as they did before, and the eye turned out really shiny and pretty since I last saw it. My little suggestion would be to add a bit more depth to the shading of the shirt or hat. Nice back-ground and 'frame-work' on the egdes!

Ghislain WildCat @ Tuesday, December 28th 2004, 8:03 AM
Hehe! Pretty cute! It's pretty nice how some things looks so fluffy compared to the rest of the pic. And the angle's well drawn! Oh! and maybe you should've shaded a bit ddarker, especially on the skin, since it seems to be in a pretty dark place and all. ^w^;

KHatch @ Tuesday, December 28th 2004, 8:23 PM
Aw this is CUTE!!! I like the coloured lineart. I tried that the other day and it made me sick, I messed it up so badly. Kudos on that. The fluff on the end of the hat is perfect, and I like the border and the plain background. The snow settling on the hat is a nice touch. =)

So I can't finish this yet. I'm really sorry... -Glum face- I am currently at my towns library. Their mouses suck. Then I'm finally going home(I have a friend nice enough to let me stay the night last night, but not tonight. My mom will kill me. e.e)

Be back later...

Sorry I cant finish right now. ><

Not horrid, the hair is very pretty so far. The colour pallette is quite nice, too, and your mention of the wings is intriguing. I hope to see this finished soon!

Ah, I bet it'll look fine. XD It looks nice so far.

All the detail in the hair really shows, and it's interesting to see how people go about choosing colours. Don't worry, I'm sure it'll look great when you finish it! ^^

Well aren't you going to finish? <{^.^}> I really like it so far, the colors look good and the hair is excellently started and the expression is already pretty cool, so please please I wanna see it already!
