Aha thanks! The detail was definitely worth it. Maybe I can make things like this more common from me. I rarely do this type of work.

Omg Ahks this is seriously amazing!! Your attention to detail and the ability to create all those small little moments yet focus on the main character is breathtaking. Definitely one of your better ones! I love how you can see underwater and THOSE COLORS <3 <3 <3 So beautiful <3

Ehe thank you bro! I was worried all the detail would detract from the character, but I am glad most do not seem to think so. I do agree it is one of the better ones in some respects. (Perspective does not exist in this artwork. Lol). I want to do another like this, and I know exactly which one.

This is gorgeous! I can't wait until December, because this should get another DD like the the inks. The colors on this are just stunning, and the detail!


I have a question, did you do any digital editing to the piece? Like making the colors more vibrant, or adding more contrast?
Reply
:iconahkward:
Ahkward Featured By Owner Oct 2, 2016  Professional Traditional Artist
Aha, second or third to think about a new DD. And when it comes to editing, I tried to only edit enough to it matches real life. The color is pretty vibrant on its own. So i did not do anything except fix the colors from my shitty scan.

ohmygod ohmygod ohmygod this is gorgeous
You got down exactly what I wanted, from the glowing bright colors to the tranquil feelings- and the way you made her pose, Rain feels as though she were almost dancing!
I know you said you would do the willow branches as well but honestly you put way too much time into this and I can't ask any more from you. This outdoes anything I had ever expected, and the only thing I can say is thank you!!
Definitely recommending this for another DD once January comes along :D

I cannot stress how beautiful this is (although you've heard this a thousand times from me already lol), and I'm pretty sure you're really relieved to finally have this under your belt xD
Thank you personally for all the effort you went through to make this. I know things have been busy, but you still put everything you had into this picture and it means so much ;w; It was definitely worth the year wait omg
