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.

yes thats right. its a dragon. (actually, a water/ice spirit, but whatever) i coloured solids!!!! *self proudness* anyway. probably lots wrong so please, tell me if you sopt something.
ren: youve reminded me. the shading, the light is coming from the front. and i kinda shot myself in the foot when i put the sun behind him didnt i !? well. too late now. the retouch is bummed up again. just so you all know i messed that shading up i suppose.

Renmazuo @ Sunday, July 3rd 2005, 11:36 AM
Ah, i was drawing a girl with that kind of stripes on the face the other day....but i had to screencap it and finish it on photoshop;^;
XD I went out of subject...I like how this picture is so shiny and the clothing design you made, though i think on the cloack the shadow in the upper part shouldn't be so long, because the head is surely casts a shadow on it, but being he background so bright it shouldn't probably reach the edge of the cloack...T_T sorry, bad English skills...

Very cool looking character and beast, I've always liked the Element concept!

I think the background should be darker though in opinion; with the dragon lighting up the sky :o

It took us a looong time to get a good connection here in Brazil....anyways...these are to of my characters in one of my (many) manga's this is in the last few chapters. The Girl with horns is a dragon knight named Cecil (she is really important to the story) and the one behind her is the dragon queen or regent Marcae. Cecil is kidnapping the queen to help start a war I can't elaborate now I would give to much away okay so anyways I'll finnish later

P.S. My siren pic is like jacked up it won't let me access it :( so I couldn't finnish it

mazilwolf @ Sunday, June 19th 2005, 12:59 AM
i think somthing is really wrong here... the bord i mean. its not letting us re-touch our pictures properly. =( but anyway, i really like this because the anatomy is so accurate and i really love the poses, and the concept. but i'll comment more when this is finished

Totenmaske @ Monday, June 20th 2005, 12:35 AM
I agree, I really like the line art so far, keep up the good work! I really want to see this coloured, the fine details may be a little pesky when you get to it, but I'm sure this will be very impressive when you finish! Now if you have any trouble retouching this image please inform Kern or myself right away, I looked at the animation of your previous image and I don't remember the image being so constricted so we are also looking into this matter as well - this may result in a change in the way the board is operated, so please be patient.

Carbuncle @ Tuesday, June 21st 2005, 6:04 AM
Thanks Toten! The problem was fixed!! I also deleted my cookies so that might have something to do with it... any ways I'll try to finnish this soon but I still have school O_o so it might take awhile

They look so cute and sad, and of course it was made for a reason that brought saddness, luckily it's been remedied!!

Psychoferret @ Sunday, June 5th 2005, 10:38 PM
Awesome idea! Awesome! And so sexy. o_O From what I can see, anyway. That'd be really awesome to see cosplayed.

Anyway, the colors are really soft and pretty, and the whole thing has a very calm, ethreal feel to it. Kudos!

Arisu @ Sunday, June 5th 2005, 11:32 PM
I love the soft coloring too. And especially the character design. That would make one heck of a costume. :D

Harlequin @ Sunday, June 5th 2005, 11:52 PM
Ah Sumi art. I do love the Sumi art. lol

You know...Valefor cosplay would rock. Then again so would the Phoenix GF from 8. Heck, any summons other than Shiva would be nice to see cosplayed. I love Shiva, but she gets all the attention! lol

I love the soft colors Sumi, and even though this was just a quick plan out, it's really very nice. The sketchy lines and soft colors really make this look like more than a simple plan out image. And the idea of a Valefor costume...well that's just awesome. I really hope you make one someday.

[376] Artist: Tigerhawk | Title: Panthera colored | Time: unknown


Tigerhawk @ Friday, June 10th 2005, 7:18 PM

Thanks so very much Toten!

Would you believe it? I tried to finish this picture on Oekaki and it won't let me. So I used photoshop instead.

After being asked to say, I suppose I will. And thank you Mazil for that wonderful picture ^^ really appreciate it, I really do. I love getting pictures from other people. I wish I had more ;P Plus it was extremly thoughtful of you. So I'm staying. My first promise broken.

I love this picture to bits because it's very colorful!!! and I did the details by hand.
Are you wondering about why they are wearing green? To the Pantheras, green is a symbol of stealth and luck. Almost all Faelidaes (my cat races) favor green as their tribal color. Gold is used as a symbol of power. As you see here the Panthera in the foreground is wearing a green cape with a green gem holding it in place with a gold circlet and a golden bangle with smaller green gems. This shows rank as you can tell the other two are only wearing gold, (with the exception with the panthera jumping down, the green is on his arrow bag and it has green triangles) a light weight form of protection. Green is also used for camoflage.

The reason my Pantheras are purple is because my Class Mascot for high school is now the Purple Panther. All schools have a Mascot. At my high school, our Mascot is the Golden Eagle. Ever since the Class of 2000, our school has made a tradition of Class colors and Class Mascots. 1999/2000 was Year of the Bulldog, their color was silver. 2001/2002-Tigers, orange. 2002/2003, Dragon, red. 2004/2005-Gryphins, green (yes we do have a green gryphon masoct). And my class 2005/2006- Panther, purple. But or Mascot is black with a purple jersey. Kinda funny looking because it covers the whole body. But I must say it's very light and you can move in it, but it gets hot in there like heck!! I was the mascot for the step down rally for a dance my class made to wish the seniors good bye. We, the Class of 2006, have made a new tradition and therefore every junior class must make a dance to wish the seniors good bye and present the new mascot. I swear my school is not the Golden Eagles but more so the "Golden Zoo."

i would greatly appreciate it if you did NOT tell me what I did wrong in this picture.

This is really interesting. Pantheras unite~ I really like the shading you did with the purples, they look all soft like. And you did a really excellent job with the running poses!! That's just what my kitty looks like when she's skittering about. Especially the one in the upper left.
I also really like the textures you used on the grass and the wonderful job you did on it's golden eye. It's so pretty and shiney.~~

The Blue Sorceress @ Sunday, June 12th 2005, 5:43 PM
This is really great. One suggestion before you're finished is to give her more eyelashes on her upper eyelid, especially toward the outside on the right eye. Just a few lashes on the lower lid works well, but on the upper lid there should be more. Anyway, you're doing a fantastic job. I love the eyes in particular.

AnimeCanuck @ Monday, June 13th 2005, 1:43 PM

Safety Save! Will finish lineart in a little... when my hand stops throbbing. x_x

Psychoferret @ Saturday, June 4th 2005, 3:05 AM
finally done! Whew. My hand hurts. He was gonna have clothes, but then I got lazy and decided I didn't want to do any more lineart. c_c

Right. So... the reason he has the tattoos is because he's part of this race of elves I made up. They're called the Krishna, and the sign of being one is the marking... and the funky ear. ^^ Anyway, they're created by mankind, formed from magic... they control the most powerful of magic. They're just tools for war. ^^ The reason he's look up like that is, well... remember in Lord of the rings when it shows the Uruk-Hai being "born" from the muck? It's bascially like that, only from magical means instead of muckiness. Woot.

I am especially proud of the way this one came out (save the background. Mental Note: Do background before starting actual coloring) The blue highlighting is supposed to be from the light int eh background, but... yeah. There are definetly things wrong with this (like him not having part of his knee... doh!), but I still like it. So far, my best oekaki.

Arisu @ Saturday, June 4th 2005, 11:41 AM
Hehe, wonderful expression. He looks so determined!

Renmazuo @ Saturday, June 4th 2005, 5:43 PM

I agree, the expression is really making him look determined, and the pose sort of reminds me of old greek statues...The coloring, execially on his skin is really soft and luminous(is it a wordO_O?)

The Blue Sorceress @ Saturday, June 4th 2005, 10:45 PM
The anatomy on this fellow is very nice. I like the blue highlights on his skin and in his hair, it's very interesting. As others have said, his expression is very determined. Good job.

Little Elf @ Saturday, June 11th 2005, 10:09 PM
Nice! I'm in love with his hands. They're pretty! =3 I also love his hair. His anatomy is a bit off, but nohting serious, so the pic still looks good. I'm also in love with his tattoos. They're sexy! XD Oh, and the shading is great!

Prismatic @ Wednesday, June 15th 2005, 5:10 PM
What a neat concept for a race of elves. I love it when people make up new races, or extentsions of pre-existing ones anyhow.
This is defintatly one of your best. I really do like his pose. And his hands! His fingers look really good.~~ I think it'd be neat if you added some definition to him having toes too. The markings on his body are really pretty. And the magic~ in the background is neat~~

Totenmaske @ Saturday, June 4th 2005, 1:15 AM
Welcome to Drowkaki Arisu! For a post that took an hour you really show a lot of familiarity with the application ? resulting in a very impressive first post on the board even due to the fact of a time constraint. You truly put in a lot of interesting details and techniques when creating this visually pleasing image. Before I continue with the comment, please make sure you comment on five fellow Drowkaki members? images on the board with each new post (three is the minimum but I prefer five ? with key points of what you like and don?t like about an image ? to help others refine their talent *well this is what I would like to see, but I can?t demand too much*).

But anyway onto the comment, I really love the way you brought everything together ? the colouring to create a wonderful base for the later details that would be the face and hair was a nice touch ? creating a sense of lineless character rendering, though I kind of liked the pigtails originally planned in the animation to be truthful. The way you had brought out the hair and then the eyes was very well done, such smooth line art. The little suggestion of a nose then indication of the lips was very nicely done, with the colour variation to create shadows upon the face before moving on to the body (and after readjusting the width) was very impressive.

There are a little rough areas, many I feel are the result of your urge to finish up the image before you lost time on the computer for today, when you finished the character design you did not clean up a few of the colour bleeding in the hair or on the face slightly ? though really the more I look at it, it seems it just needs a slight smoothing over to rectify this issue. The lighting though in this image is just fantastic ? especially the fact that you took the time to flatten the background and line art to the lower layer then paint the top layer with a faint darkness erasing the segments that would bring out the sense of lighting to the scene.

The fact that you add such a luminous glow when you did the tree was just a wonderful touch ? and treat to the eye really, driving forth the sense of a moon just out of sight in the scene. The faerie lights were very well done btw, I really like the way they wraps around this character. The light playing upon the eyes is just a wonderful touch. Really you brought out just about all the details you could in the time you gave yourself ? and masterfully so ? I like the highlights in the hair ? very soft, and the silver of the collar reflecting light just so is very good. The facial expression is very well detached ? as if the character you are depicting is devoid of emotion; thus the name of the piece ?soultaker? does fit.

Excellent work, I look forward to more of your posts on the board and hope you enjoy posting with us! Remember to comment on other works!

There's really not much to say that Toten hasn't already. All I can saw is wow- this piece is gorgeous. The simplicity of the background and the brody contrast well with the face. The lighting, as Toten mentioned, is stunning. If you continue to create such wonderful drawings, I will have to glomp you and eat your talent.

Anyway, welcome to drowkaki!

I like the tree, it looks so real. the leaves are nice too. As mentioned before, Love the white dotty thingies. =3

This picture is fabulous for your first post. Oh!! And a late welcome to the board for you~
I love the darkness of this picture, and the multiple shades you used to set the tone. I'm especially fond of the leaves on the tree.
You did a really nice job on the subjects face. The expression is really nice, and I really like the way their hair falls. The use of browns for the lineart gave it a nice softer feeling. I like the small bit of light in the picture too~

His armor is sooo neat so far! All shiney and pretty. Heh.. if I could have armor I'd definatly want purple. Your shading job is very nice so far. I like that it is probably gonna have another color added in for accents. He has nifty earrings as well. Will comment more when this is done.

The Blue Sorceress @ Wednesday, June 1st 2005, 12:37 AM
Finished! Hale\\\'s birdy friend is his a celestial companion granted to members of his knightly order by his goddess. Part of her symbol is a golden-colored raven with bright blue eyes, thus Hale has this unusual looking raven joining him on quests and what not.

*I went back and added some texture to the bird's feathers and feet as well as his beak to make him a little more 3D. I tried to get the feet to have a 'pebbly' look. I'm always amazed how much a bird's feet remind me of a dinosaur's scales.

Toten: Last time I checked no bright golden ravens with blue eyes existed anywhere but in my head, and that critter on the guy\'s shoulder isn\'t a canary. Likewise, the last guy had bright red eyes and horns, also not things you\'re going to see in nature. I realize I didn\'t add in a large background, but I was purposefully doing a series of portraits of some characters of mine. No, none of them have grossly obvious fantasy elements, nor does their world, but fantasy doesn\'t mean elf ears or dragons or even a vastly different world. I\'m also curious as to why you chose to single me out, since at least two recent posts wouldn\'t be \"fantasy\" in the way you define it without the text of the comment post that goes along with it. How are my pictures less \'fantasy\' than those others?

I don\'t think you\'re being rude, but I am a little curious as to why, if by the standards you\'ve set, my pictures don\'t fit in the genre of fantasy, why other pictures that don\'t fit those standards haven\'t recieved similar comments.

Totenmaske @ Wednesday, June 1st 2005, 1:41 AM
When I originally made my first comment I was pointing out the fact that the close-up effect of the canvas centering upon the character?s facial characteristics did not truly bring out the details of fantasy in your images ? consigning your work to such a limited view does this. And technically you did not mention that it would be a golden raven ? if you did I apologize. Now that it is finished and the bird is a golden raven it is fantasy. I personally don?t believe fantasy is limited to elves, faeries, etc ? to limit oneself to such a concept would to deprive you of taking a chance in creativity. That being said I tend to point out these type of issues when an image falls into the category of not being ?fantasy? to some extents I request that something is added to an image to make it so. These rules are not something I concocted ? though maybe I could have if I took the right amount of illegal substances while I was eating breakfast long ago? I recently returned to the board, and when I get to the images that do not ?fall under fantasy? I will comment upon them in such a manner. I don?t normally single people out (stalking situations are excluded in this remark) your image was the first I got to comment upon, since returning to the board and after going through view pending.

The fact of the matter is, if the image has issues I will point them out ? be it thematically questionable or otherwise. That being said the way you concentrate your portraits so close tends to bug me because really portraits can show more; the details of the clothing they are wearing, the look of their hair, what kind of ears they have (if you really want to go the elf route), or the environment they reside in. That being said ? time to move on to the actual comment on this image that you have presented to us:

To be truthful I really love how you have added such nice details to your character Hale?s face ? the stubble was a really nice touch and the shadows along the left side of the face (right on the canvas) really bring out a nice sense of lighting. I think if you used a little smoother line work for the details of the face though could add to the image. The hair is nice in the way you captured the sense of individual hairs ? you could have added highlights to help pick up the sense of lighting in the image but it still seems very suitable.

The issue I do have though with the image is the look of the raven; personally it would have been interesting to see individual feathers or some sense of texturing. The beak seems to need something; maybe if you added a sense of shadows playing upon it would help in the sense of added a sense of depth to that portion of the image. I think that is the only other partial issue I truly have with the image, the raven just seems to be flat compared to the details you put into Hale?s face ? this could be the fact that the raven is a celestial being ? and you were showing this by creating the sense that it glows with an inner light.

The background of the image is interesting, simply because of the nice mixture of colours we have going on. It almost appears to be a cyclone of fire. Overall the image is very pleasing ? though like I have said above, it just seems to be limited by such a close confined area.

I have included my original comment below.

(Original Comment below)
I really hate to say this Blue, but recently your work seems to concentrate upon close-ups of a character. It really doesn't seem to delve into capturing a fantasy aspect to the overall image in the end. I personally would like to know how this is fantasy. Maybe if we saw more of the character as well as the setting I would understand. I don't mean to be rude, because I do like the way you are concentrating on the facial detailing in your work. I just feel you need to pull the 'camera' back a little if you know what I mean? Bring details of the world where these characters reside.

The Blue Sorceress @ Friday, June 3rd 2005, 6:07 PM
Right-o. Sorry if I sounded snappish myself. I probably focus on faces more than other stuff simply because I'm more comfortable using my mouse to draw them since I've been working on them with pencil and paper for a while and have gotten things down fairly well. I'm still hacking out the rest of the humanoid anatomy. Partly i also like to get the small details of a face into a picture without using an enourmous canvas. You're right that the hair could use some highlighing... I must have forgotten that. And the bird does need more work on the beak area. Feather details are much harder though... I'll work on it. That's one of the thing I like about Oekaki... you can alter your image to improve it much more easily than you can a drawing with colored pencils (my usual medium of choice) . Anyway, my next picture will have more of the character's body in it.

Prismatic @ Wednesday, June 15th 2005, 5:01 PM
The bird is quiet lovely. I'm glad you went in and added more details to it. You somehow even captured a look of I don't know.. maybe adoration on its face. I suppose celestial creatures are supposed to be intelligent and this one definalty hints at such. I especially love its little feet. Sooo cute.
I like the angle in which you composed the guys face. I usually am not good at such angles, the nose always throws me off. But you did a really good job on his nose. And his facial hair is fantastic~ As well as his hair for that matter. Nice choice for his skintone as well. Oh! And the colorful background is really pretty~

Nice. Perspective. Aaaah! Yesh. x_x

Anyway, I love the way its turned out. I like the wingy things in the background, and the simple pose. It looks very nice! I do have a question, though... when you do your lineart, the black... do you use watercolor? What tool do you use to get that smooth, smooth outline?

Harlequin @ Saturday, June 4th 2005, 7:52 PM
Yeah, I use black watercolor for my lines, with opacity generally at the default for one pixel, 241, though sometimes I do use 245. Suprisingly that little difference in number makes a pretty drastic one when you're working.

Prismatic @ Wednesday, June 15th 2005, 4:55 PM
Hehe.. this is so great. I really love their t-shirt. Very nice shading in it as well. Then again I love greens.~ As always you do a fantastic job with anatomy. Her pose is so great. And their hair is truely amazing.~~ And of course the eyes, the different shades of red in them and the hint of shadow on their lids gives them so much depth. As has been mentioned previously the hint of wings is really great as well~

The Blue Sorceress @ Tuesday, May 31st 2005, 8:53 AM
I like this fella's eyes and his ear as well as the shading on his skin. The lightness of it brings a really airy feel to the picture. More shading around his nose and under his chin as well as beneath his eyebrows might make this already nice picture even better.

Harlequin @ Wednesday, June 1st 2005, 1:44 AM
Like everyone else I like the soft coloring here, to me it reminds me of oil pastels. But the lineart makes me wonder a bit. What I mean is the thick line outlining the face and facial features is just sort of there, while the lines to the ear are thinner as is the hair. Now I'm all about line weighting, but in that respect this is just unbalanced. I'm not going to say, "do this, etc etc etc" because that's not really my decision to make. I feel just pointing out that this looks unbalanced as far as line weighting is good enough. I like the brown palette with those grey eyes. It's simple, and it just works. The expression on the face is very subdued, which certainly works with the feel the colors give this. However, where is the shade to our right side of the face? The left side has a good sense of color depth, and the right side is just...flat. This really has the makings for a nice style, the coloring and the simple linework look very good together, but overall this just looks rushed.

Arisu @ Sunday, June 5th 2005, 5:53 PM
This has such a pretty soft expression. The way everything is so subtley shaded is really pleasing. I also like the way you used the skin tone on the background. It creates an 'atmosphere'. :3 My critique on the two different line styles has already been said. Lovely work.

Prismatic @ Wednesday, June 15th 2005, 4:51 PM
I love it when people use colors very close to the same in a color scheme. Especially the warm ones. It reminds me of a watercolor painting. Thier eyes are very nice. I like the strong lines in them.. and the bit of highlighting.

Yep, another member of the knightly order that Hale and Riza belong too. Elaiyne here is doing a little nighttime reading. She's wearing her badge of rank over her left breast. It's a little hard to tell because of the glare from her little light, but she's a Third Sword, which means she's not very highly ranked and not one of the order's better combatants. However, she's also a member of another order of bards ands mages dedicated to the same goddess, so she's nothing to sneeze at during a fight.

Riza\'s is a half-elf and a member of the same order as Hale. Her hair\'s not usually this long. One of the handy things aout having a friend that\'s a mage is she can play around with things like hair-length and color for fun.

Currently she's in the order's communal bath, probably getting ready for a long soak in the nice hot water, since she has her tunic untucked and has ditched her tabard and insignia.

Heh, I've always had a thing for borders. I like how this one stands out from the picture. That character is nicely done. I can't believe you watercolored every strand of hair. :o Kudos. And you have 1px watercolor lines to boot. That stuff is majorly time consuming. So Kudos for that as well. Nice detailed tiling. It's always hard for me to get the perspective on things like tiles just right. You did a nice job with that though. And it looks like you shaded almost every square individually. That's crazy. Way to go. o_o;

The Blue Sorceress @ Wednesday, June 8th 2005, 10:08 AM
Arisu: I only shaded the tiles in the foreground indivitdually. The ones in the back were just too small. I don\'t know when I started watercoloring with a 1x brush for hait, I just found it got a look closer to what I do when I\'m working with colored pencils. It is time consuming, but it\'s worth the effort, I think. I had one picture here, before the boards got messed up, that turned out even better in that department. Thanks a ton! ^________^

For some reason I really adore the shading on those wings... the red outline over the heavily shaded color underneath gives it a really nifty effect. The black lines around the skin tone really stand out though, and clash with the style of the rest of the picture, but still the anatomy is beautifully done and the hand actually looks really good. Overall this is a really great picture, way to keep up the massive improvement!

such a beautiful picture for so few comments... (and I really shouldn't be commenting now, am massively busy, but it was just too pretty to pass up <{^.-}>) So the flow of the hair is really lovely, the sense of movement is really good. You've done so much with so little here, it is truly amazing, the color scheme lends itself well to the picture, the outfit design is fantastic (mind if I borrow? hehee) and her expression is calm but content. I just love all the little details you've put in here... I always say that if you're worried about how something will turn out just do a lot of detail work and it is automatically improved. Her hands seem a little too small, but their structure is nice and believeable, particularly her left hand holding her hair. Anyways, really excellent work, and now I slink back to my hole to continue the relentless packing of the movingness...

Wow...she had a LOT of hair. That said, I really like this. The dress is very pretty. The braided(?) strands of her sleevs are very nice, and look really neat. Those earrings are super cute, and the ribbon i her hair looks like, as does that little ribbon choker. I love her eyes, they're such a pretty brown. I think her dress could use some more folds, so we'd be able to tell it was moving, unless it's form fitting, then nevermind. XD Her hair is really nice. The independent strands, and just they way it's drawn is really good. I luv Drowkaki too! =D

Chinh @ Friday, May 13th 2005, 9:27 AM
thanks for your commnts! (^__^)/ and yes I'll try to draw the hands bigger next time =D hehehe she does have lotz of hair LOL

Segzhan @ Monday, May 16th 2005, 7:34 PM
YAY! It's finished!

Such a beautiful pic.. *__*

Ashi @ Thursday, May 19th 2005, 2:01 AM
Has to comment on this because.. such pretty detail! I really want to get back into pixelated-style oekakis, because the detail you can put into them way exceeds the soft-cel style. Anyways, you did great here. I love the little stuff like the rope-braid sleeve and the flower earrings. And the hair... wow!

Prismatic @ Saturday, June 11th 2005, 2:30 PM
Aww~ She's so pretty. I really love her clothes.. seriously I want them! All the details you put into this is very nice. The purple color scheme works so well.. even in her hair. Nice job on the pose, and with the movement of her hair. I really like her earrings too~

I feel like drawing panthers today...
I'm NOT finished
Once finished this will be my last picture here. I don't plan on coming back, not like it matters much. enjoy what you see will finish soon. Just realized I forgot about my Numerology papers for math.

The Blue Sorceress @ Wednesday, June 1st 2005, 11:29 PM
Well, I think it's a shame you won't be coming back, whatever your reasons. This looks like it will be a good picture once you add color. The details of the face of the panther in the foreground are interesting to me because they bring out the cat in his nature and tone down the humanoid, something I rarely see in anthropomorphic characters. Kudos to you.

Totenmaske @ Thursday, June 2nd 2005, 10:42 PM
I'm sorry to see that this will be your final image Tigerhawk, if you need to talk about any issue you have you can always contact me through email. It is a shame because you do put a lot of work into your images, always experimenting with creating a new effect like the previous image you have posted where you really worked in a nice translucent effect in the clothing. I do hope this image meets with your satisfaction, and I will comment further once it is finished. Take as long as you like on this final image! (secretly hoping you will not finish and move onto a new image?so you can stay forever and ever...)

Mouse @ Wednesday, March 16th 2005, 7:43 PM
Welcome! First thing that caught my attention here was the horns, since they stand out against the black. Love the smooth coloring, and the details on the clothing in particular.

GAAAAAAAH this pic started out looking cool and then right towards the end it started to suck but SEE I POSTED IT. Now excuse me I think I'll go off to the corner to sob for having ruined it. I cannot do Daerinnid's face justice. I just can't. ;_;

kyokurrychan @ Friday, March 18th 2005, 12:29 PM
i don't think it looks bad *blink blink* I like it a lot. The shading is awesome, and so are the eyes. i just adore how you did this.

The_Infamous_Pumpkin @ Friday, March 18th 2005, 2:54 PM
-smacks- This my friend, looks amazing. There is nothing ruined about it. T_T I'd give my feet to do realism this well. x.x;

Kari Maxwell @ Friday, March 18th 2005, 10:02 PM
I see nothing wrong with this. He looks... aweseom. I love the realism to it. And the shading kicks major ass. Great job, I love it.

Neko Girl Star @ Saturday, March 19th 2005, 3:43 AM
when I saw this, my jaw dropped...this is amazing....your detail is awsome...*bows her head to you* beautifully done

olsie @ Saturday, March 19th 2005, 3:16 PM
Very very nice face structure; I think it's a perfect face... especially around the eye area... it's very cool :) The coloring technique makes this all the better.

HuntressD @ Tuesday, March 22nd 2005, 7:58 PM
No no, it doesn't suck, it's a very amazing picture. :D I especially love how the hair and eyes turned out... and that ear.. >_> ..say..can I nibble on it. >:)

Little Elf @ Thursday, March 24th 2005, 11:26 AM
Oooooooooooooo sexy! X3 This is some kickin' realism! The way you colored it is sooo cool and all scratchy and stuff. I love it!! ^_^ The bg is cool too, and the little bit of green lighting is a really nice touch. I could comment forever, but I think you know I really like this, and you didn't ruin it as much as you say you did, or at all! I love it! =3

The Blue Sorceress @ Sunday, June 5th 2005, 6:55 PM
There's nothing really wrong with this is you ask me. It turned out very nicely. I like the way you shaded this; the way you used lines for it is very nifty. The hair is particularly well done, I think.

Harlequin @ Tuesday, March 22nd 2005, 2:38 AM
Ooooooh, I love the night scene here. Myself I think it looks more fitting for like...the loch ness monster...but then again I do have a love of creatures (real or rumored) with...*ahem*..."great pointy teeth". lol

You finish now too!

krypto @ Tuesday, March 22nd 2005, 5:53 PM

O_O Thats beautiful! I love this so much, Like, a unicorn's spirit? Ya? >< Soooo pretty.

krypto @ Tuesday, March 22nd 2005, 11:01 PM
lol, i guess... :D

Sumi @ Wednesday, March 23rd 2005, 6:27 PM
Beautiful glow. I like the curve of the horn the best.

Little Elf @ Thursday, March 24th 2005, 11:45 AM
Oh wow, this is beautiful! The water, and the land look great. The unicorn is oh so very beautiful. I love it! The moon is very pretty, and the stars look great. Yes, it's all very great! I just love the details on the unicorn. I adore you now. =3

Prismatic @ Monday, April 4th 2005, 2:10 AM
This is really quiet beautiful. I love the softness to it and the serene feeling it invokes. The unicorn is amazing.. the way it just sort of blends out into a mist is really great. I really enjoy the way you did the stars.. with the rings around them.. and then the pretty reflections in the water~

mazilwolf @ Wednesday, April 6th 2005, 7:41 AM
this is a beautiful picture. the moon is loverly and so is its hazy reflection on the water. the stars are swwet and the unicorn has some dooted on its body, suggesting it could be an imaginitive constallation, that, i love. the clouds at the top are wonderful and wispy soft. it all looks so mysterious! and ther suggestion of light on the cliff/ mountain os good too. it reminds me of the lake district in a way, and boy do i miss that place! ^__^ great job!

The Blue Sorceress @ Sunday, June 5th 2005, 6:52 PM
First of all, I love the background on this picture. It's superb. Second, the unicorn-pegasus is also verrah nice. For some reason it reminds me of the unicorn from "The Last Unicorn" when she was trapped in the witch's travelling circus. The horns look similar, I think. Great job!
