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. :nod: 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. :lol: 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. :D 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. :)

I like the clouds! And the colors! I'm sure glad you posted it. ^_^

And Hollow, where has FireHelix been, anyway? Is he still around the Arena? If you ever see him around, try to invite him here to DeviantART! :D

Why thank you. =) Well, poor Firehelix got into a car accident last I heard, so I haven't seen him posting much if at all. o.o
