Amazing what one can do with a bunch of cheap children color pens and a couple of paint brushes ovo
There's a gazillion mistakes there because it's been almost 2 years since I last touched a paint brush and it's the first time I try something like this (I just bought those pens too) but I managed to get it to look colorful so I'm glad already.
As usual, my scanner likes to screw up my stuff. I think it's trying to get me to realize traditional art ins't for me and just give up already. That and my regular print paper just isn't meant for this so it got bent because of the water and ink so the scanner screwed it up even more than usual. The hair and so many other parts have so much more contrast live, the shadows disappeared here orz
Drew this following 's suggestion: "Theme challeng!: sweet time! Look at some kind of candy and draw something inspired in that." Though it's actually inspired by sweets in general, but I got the idea from a lollipop =3=
I named the girl Madelaine because I might draw her again sometime, since I had a lot of fun with this <3
oh my, you can do traditional epic too ?!?! impressive !! you're distinct use and placement of colors is apparent in both your digital and traditional works, and this has such adorable posing, plus the sweet motif is soo cute. and I hope this surge of comments and favs don't bother you too much (don't want to oversaturate your page with a ton of comments all at once, so I'll just fav the rest of the works I really like >w<)
It's not really epic, it has lots of visible mistakes haha;; It looks a lot better on the paper too, many shapes disappeared when scanning orz Like her hair, the shading was much darker and more visible... Yeah, I guess ovo Aside from the fact that in traditional art I have to use the colors I have available instead of being able to pick any like in digital, I do traditional art the same way as the digital. Same overdone colorfulness and everything :,) Thought I tend to blend the colors more in traditional art.
What? Why would it bother me, I'm honored you liked my work so much ;A;
well, traditional paper always looks better in person, as scanners kill the colors a lot, but other than the scanner, I don't really see these errors (you're being your own worst critic)
ah, cool, not many artists can do their traditional work the same as their digital. and yay for overdone colorfulness, I love it.
and well, I feel like I can come off as spammish or bothersome when I sort though and comment and fav on a ton of stuff all at once on one artist, and I don't want to be overwhelming, so I limited my comments and favs. but glad the comments and such didn't come off as that and honored you >3<
The colors go over the lines a lot, some hues are wrong, and the shadings in some parts don't show at all. But oddly enough, this time I'm not really criticizing, just pointing out there are mistakes. This was the first time I tried using this coloring media, o it actually came out much better than expected.
I think people who would be bothered by someone who loved their work so much they'd go on a comment rampage thought their whole gallery are just way too conceited... It's fine if they don't have the time to reply to everything at once, but thinking of it as a bother? I mean, why are they even here if having people interested in their work is bothersome?
I always full view, not only because I want ton see better but also because I think that if the artist had the work of doing a bigger version, I should see it, as it's the original C: I'm not censoring you nor anything, though ;v; Don't get me wrong, I'm just saying what I do.
Sorry for commenting this late despite I declared how I'm looking forward to your next traditional submission. The reason is, well nothing special, I have 7000 deviations in my inbox and that's just... overwhelming. And also, few times I browse through partial of it and I can't found yours. Maybe I didn't looked enough.
Okay, enough bitchin'. Weeeell I guess I have to agree this isn't very good. The color are strong yet it's not bright. Colorful, yes, but it's not glowing like I think it supposed to be. I don't know if this is the scanner's fault or the actual pic isn't far from this. But if you think you want to call traditional a quit, well I can't say anything more. When it comes to art you really have to do what you love afterall.
I overlook your pictures many times too, it's not like it's on purpose, so I'll never complain nor anything if you do too ovo full inboxes are just like that.
I thought you would comment on the actual coloring when you said "it's not good", because, well, I did go over the lines a bunch of times because my brush was bad and the other one I had was too thick.
The actual picture is actually light years away from this. Many shadings have disappeared here, among other things. In here her hair barely have any shadings, but in the paper they're very clear, and even have a bit of gradient. Where it's better or not I can't tell, but it's definitely way different.
But about "glowing colors", the media I used - which wasn't even supposed to be used the way I did - is limited in that, because they're just really cheap pens in 12 fixed colors. You can control at least pressure with color pencils, and they blend well, but with this I had to struggle to even get the shading to stand out from the rest orz Considering how things went, I honestly was satisfied with the result merely because it was way better then I thought possible when I started.
