THE LINEART ISN'T MINE.
It was drawn by the talented Firehelix
, I did not do the lineart. Again, I didn't draw the lineart
But, I did do everything else.
I was debating on uploading this since I didn't do the lineart..but finally decided to. This picture represents a terrible time in my art life. I was having an art block, one of the worst ones in years..infact I hadn't had one for years. Yes I do draw every damn day. But for weeks I wasn't drawing anything, nothing was turning out well.
Firehelix was having a coloring contest though, and so..since he has such nice thick lineart, it looked fun to color. So I thought I'd go ahead and do something halfassed for the hell of it. Couldn't get any lower really. So I put it in Photoshop..and eventually, out came this. I was quite ecstatic, I finally had accomplished something, and I'm never one to like anything about a picture of mine..but damn I love those clouds. They remind me of some cutesy japanese thing..Hello Kitty? I dunno.
I had tried new, different techniques to color this with..and that's just what I needed. Haven't had any art problems since then, so this picture is meaningful to me.
I won third, beat out by two lovely traditionally colored pictures that I was glad to lose to. Digital is easy peasy compared to what they did.
I know ~ManaJaq
was one of the artists but the other name escapes me.. If I remember I'll link to her DA page as well. o.o
Materials: Photoshop 6, optical mouse, some much needed inspiration
Note: Remember, lineart isn't mine so only crit the coloring if you decide to critique.
