Story: The planet was flooded, the water was almost everywhere, and all the buildings captured by octopuses.
Time: a week and a half This is my first work, where I seriously decided normally draw water. I think i done it well. At least, this is one of my works, which I really like. And I want to win, of course
Do you ever get the feeling that something is watching you? That a brief flash you notice in the corner of your eye is actually something more than a figment of your imagination? I've always had this inner fear that something else lurked in the mirror whenever I turned away, something more than my mere reflection; Something truly insidious...
Wow, this was such a fun picture to work on. Took many long hours, but I think it was worth it! I'm really pleased with how it turned out... I was trying to go for the effect that while everything in the outside world appears normal and relatively cheerful, inside the mirror - this darker realm - there is something much more disturbing. (aka a japanese style ghost... those freak me out the most because they get all twisty and jittery and pffffft.) I hope this doesn't happen to me next time I'm getting ready for a night out. XD Well I hope you enjoy the picture and are at least a little bit creeped out
EDIT: ahhh, thanks for all the favorites and comments! I didn't expect to get so many >w<
I thought it would be nice to participate in a contest for a change. So I made an entry for the draw this again contest. I love the draw this again meme, so I had fun with this! It's a traditional work with digital colors.
Here's the link to the original old drawing: [link] And here's a link to the new drawing: [link]
I'm so excited about this. I never really realized I had improved that much. If I may, I might even be a little proud. I hope you guys like it too!
media used: mechanical pencil, indian ink and dip pen, 0,25 copic multiliner, GIMP for the colors.
Here is the pic that shows the original lines better: [link]
I've been working on this piece every day non-stop ever since I saw this competition on DA, which was on August 1st. That's why all my commissions have been on hold all this time. I will be working on them now.
Anyways, my idea for this piece was to show how beautiful and unpredictable life is under the sea. If you look at the details closely you'll see a lot of motives on this pic, from love and happiness to death and darkness. The piece itself is very contrasting, it goes from the lightest part which is full of life to the darkest one which is almost extinct. Hope you guys like it.
Time taken: Around 10 full 24h days (since I've been working on it for 20 days with small lunch/bathroom breaks hehehe)
Tools used: Paint tool Sai, Photoshop CS, Genius tablet (whose pen broke down 2 days before I got to finish this) and a computer mouse.
EDIT: OH. MY. GOODNESS! A D.D!!!! Wow! Thank you so much guys! This totally made my day! I'm in heaven right now! Huge thanks to `ArtisnotanAccident for suggesting this piece and ^wdwparksgal for featuring it! You guys are amazing!
My entry to the Tombraider competition. Went for a poster style. I drew inspiration from some of my favorite illustrated posters of Indiana Jones and Star Wars. Pencil drawn and coloured in Photoshop. Approx 25 hours. All art by me (Mike Packer).
Myself, Claudia, as the White Queen from Alice in Wonderland.
(I would absolutely love to wear something like this; the costume, wig, makeup, contact lens, etc.)
Wow, first off, this painting took so long to complete. 20+ hours using Photoshop and I had a lot of fun with it.
I wanted to do something completely original. So I redesigned the entire look of the Queen, but stayed true to her eccentric personally. Sadistically plucking petals off her roses was just the thing to contrast her beautiful appearance. Alas, everyone is mad in Wonderland. So I played with that concept, giving her a feral stare with her yellow eyes and an overtly theatrical pose.
