yoo! well just a colored version of the previous sketch i uploaded recently (available on scraps)
this gal is the main chara of my story, i did a simple coloring, kinda like cell shading style but not totally, u can notice from the hair, it's still my usual coloring method, just thought i should try something new...i'm on another CG more difficult, so i felt like i had to do something easier to decompress...
voila un CG plutot light de ma ch'tite keo, histoire de decompresser un peu d'une autre colo bcp plus dur! et que j'espere finir bientot
c un peu a la va-vite, mais bon le but ct de voir comment ca resortait, j'utiliserai ces couleurs comme references pour mes prochaines illustrations de cette histoire
voili voilou, sinon bonne vacances!!!
:faints: Finally the commission for is complete. After all the ups and downs and the massive artist block, I'm finally pleased with it. ^___^ But I must admit it came out a lot different then I had originally intended. My original theme was for sunset, but in the end I do better with night and moon schemes. I felt that a moon would fit the raging river theme a lot better. Plus it's a known fact that the moon does have a pristine effect on bodies of water.
So there you have it. Enjoy. Know I'm off to do another commission and work on Convention prints.
This is one of the two main card of Tarot, The Sun. But the original antitype is RÔ, the God of Sun in Egyptian tale. (Coz I yearn the old mysterious culture very much) The other one of these two is The Devil Pan, which I prefer. It was the first time I attempt to draw the illustrations in European style, wish that every will love it. : D
This project is about a year in the making... I've never been good at lineart outside of pixels where making corrections tends to be easier due to the limited amount of space... So This was one big .. well.. huge, experiment.
(2,000 x 3,000 pixels)
The lineart took, what, like 9 months?... It started with a crappy doodle of Ruxe and Jaeden that I liked enough to scan, and plop in Photo shop 7 as a test run. (like the few other photo shop experiments ive made.)
The characters continued to develop from there. Im touchy on critiques and my ego is easily hurt (There I confess) so I only posted the process that one time and took what i could take from the public and changed what I thought needed desperate editing. I worked on this from 10 minutes to 8 hours depending on my mood with sometimes as much as a month break in between.
Afterwards I relied on my bestest of friends, as much as I could take.
So after 4 months of coloring (Yes this is why im sensitive to any upcoming critiques I know yall bastards are going to throw my way) Im ready to display.
I've finally learned the majority of the inside-outs of Photoshop7. None of that multiply shit... though Im sure it would have helped lol. I understand how to make patterns and apply them, how to blend, how to make backgrounds... Layers.. dear god. this image had about 100 layers.. Is this normal? Yeesh!
This was more of a learning experiment; gone well.. (Id like to think, Im sure someone out there will point out every anatomical error possible but hey thats life.)
Will I be making this kind of stuff again? Not in a longgggg time... This was what I call - too much effort.
Hokay. Onto the facts. Epic dark - Shaun Melton
Shalnil (big god guy on top) Aana - Evil redheaded bastard thats ruxes half brother Adrin - Dark elf with spike shoulders. Great character, Checked to see if Jaedens boobs were real once. She cut off her arm. Aala - Chick with vines on her shirt, blonde hair baby face. Nature elf, Ruxes Half sister, God of life. Bha'al - Purple chick with huge tits. Ruxes X wife. (when she was elin, but thats alonger story) Faust- The creepy bastard with the mask and shoulder armor. I love magister faust, He rocks. Malekai - Green, brown hair, silver armor, green cloak, Hes realy a dragon.. and yes his face is lopsided, fuck you lol. Eden - Purple guy with dark purple corn rows. He has a tit I swear. Elyd - Green EQ (anyone recognize?) armor brown hair, I love his smirk, If yall dont like his anatomy you can shove it.
and finally... Ruxe and Jaeden I know ruxes hand is odd, but Im not that good at hands so please dont critique.
Other than that.. Im sure Ill survive. Bobby suggested lighting that reflects the colorscheme of the background.. I dont have it in me, so no need to mention, its already been considered.
Yah. Ok.. Thats it... Suggestions on making things EASIER welcome, critiques on anatomy = please dont ^_^ I know its whacky.
Help on how to make lightning, or adding colored lighting to accent an image after an image is complete, is also welcome. If your drawings arent as good as mine, Your critique is not welcome, Id rather someone with serious experiance assisting me with this. No hard feelings, Id rather a professional teach me, thats all....
Another year and another edit it seems....I like this picture, but when I come back and look at it again after a while, I notice little things that are off, so I keep getting an itching compulsion to fix it. XD
You guys are absolutely right...her eye was off. I went back and fixed it, hope it looks better now! Thanks guys.

I feel really dead. I spent the past 4 hours cg'ing. The longest I've spent in a really long time.
