Rellish - Coloured by Astrophel Rellish - Coloured by Astrophel
:bulletgreen:EDIT:bulletgreen:
I made a new layer of pants and messed around with the blending. I like the better now, they have definition rather than the black mass they were before. Oh, and the whole process took me like 4 hours-ish, but remember, I was tutorialing the whole time :)
O.k. and now I've tossed on this yellow backround so it's a little less stark, I dunno. I like it I guess. :) hehe, o.k. I'm seriously leaving for work now, I swear.

This is from [link] by ~throe- I hope she won't yell at me, but I asked permission (She just hasn't given it yet o_O) Of course I will take this down if she's upset, but I found this tutorial [link] and it's siblings, and got a little over-zealous.

I don't do visual art.

Understand that. I fell in love with the face of her character and thought, well heck, I can at least clear the blue notebook lines. And then the rest followed.

I'm happy. I saved far too many stages of it.

I know the shading isn't physically possible :) and I do wish that the pants hadn't ended up so dark, as the detail on them is really nice.

Anyhow, this is for ~throe- with many many thanks to ~Raidzuo for the incredible tutorial.

hehe. No problem. If you dig it you should check out more of ~throe-'s work. and she's recently opened up ~ paint-me-green but I don't believe she's developed it much yet. Anyhow, she's freakin' fantastic. Her peter pan is to fall in love with.

Indeed! :) hey, sorry about my lackluster reply to your note. I was feeling pretty rough when I got it, migrany. I'll be in touch soon, and I'm sorry I keep saying that and then disapeering, you've been absurdly nice and helpful, I promise it won't be the wrong decision. I'm a good horse to bet on. :)

i think you definitely chose prime colouring for the hair and wings. you could have gone with pink wings, but that's much more female fairy, than it is male fairy. the shading matches the style as well, i don't think it would be half as good without.

do me up some line-art and I'll be all about it.

(it just takes WEEKS to clean up shaded pencil)

though I love doing it.

or at least i have so far.

you are my sunshine, my only sunshine, you make me happy, when skies are gray, you'll never know dear, how much I love you, please don't take my sunshine away.

used to sing that to my niece when I'd rock her in the living room of my old house.

and I'd sing to my patients at the hospital.

there was an older gentleman who would come and stand in the doorway to his room when he heard me on the floor, and listen to me sing until I left.

but I don't sing

only in those two special occasions...and once in a while, a long while, i'll sing my prayers.

Yeah, lineart's not exactly my thing... But I have done some stuff recently with solid lines. I just have to get to my scanner.

:aww: hey babe;) thanks for the fav!

:hug: good, I'm glad you like it, I actually need to go back and fix part of his ear now that I'm looking. It's been bugging me all day. Anyhow! I feel like a freakin' artist :) if you ever want to see the transformations your little dude went through I've got em all. One of the early, getting-toward-lineart ones is neat.

Anyhow. :) atlas?

I think you did a good job, albeit with some errors. The eyes really shouldn't be coloured in the same as the skin, nor eclipsed by the hair. However, it is a fitting interpretation of a sketch and your colouring/"inking" job conveys that sense of it's origins well. Nice work.

I enjoy the picture, it has something that I can't really describe... maybe its a cross between reality and imagination...
