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.

She's purdy Sumi!

My only crit is that with all the light colouring, she kinda gets a little lost with the background a little :o

Omfg the colours are certainly beautiful though~ I love that splash of red [for obvious reasons, its my fave colour! XD]

Kern @ Wednesday, November 1st 2006, 2:19 PM
It is a shame about the retouch. Because this got to be the best looking oekaki fanart i saw this year! Love the expressions, they're quite dynamic.
Perhap we should upgrade the oekaki and just trash our custom features, at this point , i think there is little choice.

Neku @ Wednesday, November 1st 2006, 3:43 PM
Thanks, :)

i'll prob end up uploading at nikos and working on it from there ^__^. and yea the newer oekaki versions all have user icons, similer to the way they are here. so if your just sticking with this custom made version because it shows the user avatars then maybe its time for an upgrade =)

Queen_Godzilla @ Saturday, October 14th 2006, 8:34 PM
He looks like a gargoyle, I think. The use of different textured brushes and tones gives the look of traditional media as well. Your values range is very good -- you ran from white to black and all that inbetween. Good job, you! XD

This is such pretty fanart. Mishi's character looks so sweet as she's reading her recipe book. I love the details you put into this. The cookbook looks worn and well used. I like that you put diagrams onto the pages, it gives the book realism.

darkrose @ Saturday, January 29th 2005, 10:32 PM
I love how many details you pay attention to. Things like the textures of everything from metal to wood to leather to terrycloth and paper, the lighting (complete with little dust speckles giving the room a very homely feel), the composition (something interesting in every part of the picture but the lines and general focus are drawn to the main figure {or perhaps the book...}). This feels like a real place that really exists, which I think is important in a good picture. Helps people relate to it more. If I could critique anything at all it would be her face.. it appears that her chin is tilded down, her focus is on the book, and everything about her posture indicates the tilting of the chin except her hair, which still seems to be in the position of a fully level chin. Maybe if you took the hairline down a little bit it would help, but only if that was indeed what you were going for. Like I said, this is fantastic. Excellent work.

I mean wow, from the stains on the towel and the writing in the book, to the folded peieces of paper in it and the planking on the wood. Even the knives have a lot of detail~
I love her pose and expression. And her outfit! Especially the sleeves. I want some like that now.
The background is beautiful. and you can even see the particals of dust in the sunlight~ I think this is one of my favorites of yours.~

Queen_Godzilla @ Saturday, March 5th 2005, 12:08 AM
Man, I seriously can't find anything wrong with this.

It's a very strong composition. Gypsy girl isn't standing around staring off into space, she's tying on an apron and getting ready to cook. It has implied action!

Not only that, but the textures. My. GOD. The slats on the wooden table, the fluffy towel, the crackled pages, her be-wrinkled clothes, the glass jars, the motes and the light! Holy HELL, Sumi.

Ah, I found something -- the window light should reflect more on the surrounding area. Including gypsy. Other than, that... DAMN.

People tend to make vampire fangs look too large and kinda goofy in most pictures (Even in flims, I might add) But this one looks pretty sweet! Those fangs have a frail kris like look to them. Or maybe it is the eyes and soft nose that is making me think otherwise O.o;. Beautiful picture anyways, the color scheme is absolutally eerie! (in a positive sence!)

dorothyblueeyes @ Friday, October 6th 2006, 3:19 AM
Sumi, I just looked at this picture again,and I have to say, you really have subtle tones,and gradations,that I can not even come near.I know I am over-done,and obvious,and most of us even here are not too subtle. I started to look at the tones in the picture, and that more is concealed,than revealed,and it is a great lesson to me. The sense of "hiddenness"and "danger" that the darkness gives,is what makes the whole picture work. wow. I'm just curious , who's fine art do you admire?Do you like to study lighting of all kinds, in painting?Do you like to look at a lot of very old oil painting, classics, of all kinds, that are masters with lighting? I can make out the background of shaded mountains, and the way they blend into the front picture, but I happen to know that something like this is not that easy to do. It may look easy, but it's much harder to under-do a picture, and go for such dramatic darkness,and really convey a feeling of danger with it. "Mysteriousness." You can just barely make out the fangs, just barely. She is mostly hidden, so you can not really know who or what she is.

Hmm..reminds me of a really good vampire or horror movie,where the vampire is lurking in the dark shadows, and the cinematographer wants to just "hint"that she is there,and ":hints"that is is so dangerous,and shows just enough of her, to show that she is also probably beautiful.

Is this a departure for you? I just really love it. Sorry for oggling it,and bugging you,but this is really something I would expect, in some ways, to find in a museum gallery,or painting gallery. Humph!! You are really onto something. Have you heard the expression "tone poem"? Almost like an illustration for an Anne Rice novel. Ok, I'll stop over-commenting, but I just wanted you to know, you are really really good,and very talented. I do not say that to just anyone. "Mood" and "delicacy" and "sensitivity" is not a very wide-spread characteristic even in the art world.

Having seen a lot of art history, I can tell you, that the pieces of art that really last, are not the ones with the best technical perfection, or accuracy, they are the ones with the most ":mood" and "sensitivity" and "expression of emotion" and "studies of light."The Mona Lisa?It's her "mood" and "expression", "lighting." It is when the artist captures a combination of feeling,and delicacy that you only can marvel at. That is really what we call "genius." Not particularly technical perfection or accuracy. Umm..have you ever seen a copy of Van Gogh's "The potato eaters"?(peasants eating a meager dinner.) I can name many others. I'm a descendent of Swiss, I tend to like Durer,and Rembrandt,and 15th century Flemish painting,but there are many Oriental, Japanese, Chinese masterpieces,and masters, too. Plenty of them. I've seen the Asian Museum in San Francisco, California,so I am associated with many Asian masterpieces. Years ago, I tried to study Chinese water colors;I loved it, but I was no master at it. I marvel at the huge Japanese or Chinese landscapes, usually on silk. Ok, ok, I'll stop rambling. I just wondered what art,and artists, you liked,and what ever influenced you.

I just wanted, also, to encourage you along the lines, of this picture, and I do not know if you realize how good it is. No one else here seems to catch onto it,but I am almost 60 years old,and I've seen a lot of art and artists. There are millions, literally billions of people who call themselves "artists",but in actuality, there are a mere handful who are truly good. A-hem, may I have your permission to have a copy of this picture? Do ever sell copies of any of your work? This is something I would like to have a copy of ,to eventually hang on my wall. --or on my computer. Ok, ok, I over did it,but I am very taken by it,and just had to let you know. I am sure other people on this site know you are good,and there are a lot of good artists on the Oekaki sites, but you definitely seem to be getting to be one of the best.

Don';t get a swelled head but ,you should know when you are good.I've been staring at this picture for at least a half hour, I still like it. ha ha.
Ok, sign me up for your fan club. Thanks for listening to me, Sumi, and please, keep up this good work. Umph! heh heh. I just LOVE this picture. (( ^ ^ )) Looking forward to seeing more of your work, in the future, whatever you do.

Thanks!!! sincerely, dorothyblueeyes, in Eugene, Oregon, USA, retired cartoonist,artist, and cooking teacher.

Theron @ Monday, May 22nd 2006, 12:37 PM
I would say boy 'cause his muscle structure seems to lend itself better to the male form...

Hehe I love the curl to his tail!

Jennifer, The Blue Narian @ Friday, May 26th 2006, 6:16 PM
Nice sketchy shadeing. Makes it look like it was done in pencil. Definutly boy. The arms are muscled more like a male's and the shoulders and neck are broad like a guy's.

Theron @ Monday, May 22nd 2006, 12:36 PM
I quite fancy the purples you've used to shade her hair and fur ^^

Jennifer, The Blue Narian @ Friday, May 26th 2006, 6:25 PM
Again, great atmasphere. reminds me of London fog. Poor thing. I want to give her a hug and take her home.

dorothyblueeyes @ Thursday, October 5th 2006, 7:03 AM

I'm still working on it, just need to stop for now. I hope this turns out up to parr for the board.

KHatch @ Monday, May 1st 2006, 10:29 PM
Lady Lady finish it! Don't be like me.
Who's it gonna be, random or a character?

Lady GH @ Thursday, May 11th 2006, 12:45 AM
I think this is as finished as it's going to get. There are a few things on here I should have caught earlier, like the arm, but overall I think it's okay. More of a concept piece than a finished pic.

Theron @ Monday, May 22nd 2006, 12:35 PM
Good posework - I find female backs can be hard to manage so kudos to you for it!

Such an awesome pic! I always have such a great transparency on your drawings. And those eyes are gorgeous and cute!

Sumi @ Monday, May 8th 2006, 9:32 PM
Goodness, I love how you can go all solid, but still give your pictures a whispy look. The lighting is perfect, and I'm really likin' the transparent wings.

Theron @ Monday, May 22nd 2006, 12:34 PM
Unf *eats your mad solids skillz*

Lovely lighting job! Contrast like that can be hard to manage o0

It reminds me of a warm summer night,
when everyone is sleeping... Like a perfect night for sneaking out and going for a walk and nobody notices.

...I know it's random, but it's the feeling I'm getting while looking at that picture. >_>;;

Chime @ Thursday, May 25th 2006, 10:00 PM
Love that mix of solids and watercolors :O

Perfectly , adorably stunning. Draw more T___T

Jennifer, The Blue Narian @ Friday, May 26th 2006, 6:27 PM
Ah, more solid goodness. ^_^ Beuatiful lighting and cast shadows. Dream fairy. Even ctabilliers Dream...

tori_yuugi @ Friday, June 2nd 2006, 8:32 AM
cute nice job on the lighting

dorothyblueeyes @ Thursday, October 5th 2006, 6:59 AM
Very nice,and professional, too. Do you also do oil painting in real life? You have the talent to do very good paintings involving light, and subtle lighting effects, if you wanted to; do you like dutch master's paintings? You would like the way they depicted lighting. Rembrandt is very good at this.

Well as you can see it's faaaar from complete. But it's been more than a year since my last drawing, and I figured it was time for an update! I dunno when I'll get around to finishing this, maybe never. But it was too much time and effort to just abandon at this point, so I figured I'd send in what I had.

(Edited on February 28, 2009, 9:20 am)

Lady GH @ Tuesday, May 2nd 2006, 11:13 PM
This is looking really nice so far. Please finish.

KHatch @ Wednesday, May 10th 2006, 2:40 PM
Look, this is unfair. You need to finish the arm so that I can steal the lineart and colour it! I LOVE the outfit...she looks like my tiefling...

mark @ Monday, May 15th 2006, 2:37 AM
nice lineart! it's very detailed!
(please finish =)

Chime @ Thursday, May 25th 2006, 9:57 PM
that is one skimpily-clad warrior woman XDD haha, sorry

Awesome on the details there, great lineart. Waiting to see the finished piece XDx

Jennifer, The Blue Narian @ Friday, May 26th 2006, 6:52 PM
Very nice start. Nice soft lines too and good praportion and anatomy. I really do hope you finish it, or at least finish the arm. It would be a fun image to color.

Neko Girl Star @ Wednesday, May 31st 2006, 3:33 PM
wow...amazing...and I love the nipples ^_^;;; lol..I was drawn to that first, then the missing hand..then the rest...looks amazing anyway finish it already @_@

tori_yuugi @ Friday, June 2nd 2006, 8:31 AM
this is cool! line art very detailed love the dragon!

dorothyblueeyes @ Thursday, October 5th 2006, 6:52 AM
Yes, excellent line art,and I love that tiny dragon too. I was surprised to see this is a female artist, cause this is the image of sci-fi or fantasy women, that guys like; nipples standing out,very long tiny waist, and a big rear. Not to mention the big eyes. Maybe this is just a fantasy version of the female.Who knows?Very good drawing, though.
