I missed the journal for the secret santa so I couldn't sign up... but I find your character design interesting and I just love drawing fellow Azu's |3
I haven't had a computer in a few months so I started this to help me practice my digital art again and... wow it took a while to finish XD;



Tools: Wacom Pen & Touch Bamboo tablet, SAI

Tatsumi (c) xX-iLuvChocolate-Xx

:cries: t-thank you! Honestly I was really insecure about my lines and nearly scrapped this multiple times because of them!
I'm so touched and caught off guard that people are complimenting them!
I honestly think making them coloured instead of leaving them black made some sort of difference?
And the colouring was seriously just me using the magic wand and paint bucket tool with a little touch ups in the areas that didn't get selected XD;
Though I did manual brush strokes for the green hair tips and the transition from brown to white on the tail.
I used the water tool to blend the green and blue of the crystal.
All in all it was pretty simple. The lines were the hard part and what took most of my time *sigh*

I SPENT WAY MORE TIME THAN NECESSARY FOR THESE LINES I TELL YOU.
Seriously.
:icontealdeerplz:
I did initial quick fluid lines in one stroke as often as possible. It didn't look the best. But I also had to pause and draw the lines in multiple sessions because my arthritis restricts me from drawing for long periods of time. I also hadn't been drawing since maybe April on the computer so it took me weeks to get back up to being able to draw even every other day without my hand and back being in agony afterwards.
But then I went through the painstaking process of manually editing the line weight by adding more thickness where it was needed after zooming in at like 400%. Zooming out now and then to check the line weight. And then even after THAT I zoomed in at like 400% again to slowly shave away pixels from weight that was too thick, occasionally zooming out again to check the weight and repeat.

Being able to achieve results like this is why I prefer to do digital art as opposed to traditional only ha ha ha...
I wanted to draw something on a large canvas and that might have been my first mistake LOL *sob*

Something about this pose just screamed Tatsumi to me. I don't have any characters I think suited it. And since I missed signing up for the SS I was looking over peoples wishlists and I was, "Yes. I want to draw Tatsumi. I like her simple yet aesthetically appealing design and colour scheme."

The eyes are my favourite here. But I also enjoyed drawing the choker and crystal pendant wrapped in wire.
Honestly if Draco were a choker type of guy he'd probably be sporting something similar. Though his crystals are used more like flashlights/candles. Because Ice Dragons aren't big on fire using crystals that emit a soft blue light are preferable. Especially since the crystal light is easier on their light sensitive eyes.

WELL IT LOOKS GOOD. Yeah them big canvases can make your work look so good but that's the problem...they're a giant ass canvas and take forever :iconmingplz: Wish I had been able to make the secret santa ahahaha maybe next year when I ACTUALLY PAY ATTENTION. If I don't sign up I procrastinate too much to remember to do art for people on my own DERP

Yeah I was surprised how well it turned out!
LOL uh huh. Big canvas looks good but take so much time and work to finish *sob*

Aww man I know. I wish I hadn't missed it I just drew this because I wanted to even if I didn't join.

I had a lot of work at the end of Nov. to mid Dec. but also no computer (it wasn't until xmas that I got a laptop. My desktop died in April). So it wasn't until the deadline passed that I even saw the journal. The dA app isn't very convenient for notifications or updates. It is so hard to check updates because it is all smushed into one long endless scrolling page *sob* *whispers* I hate endless scrolling...!
The Twitter will hopefully stay up to date because it is a lot easier to keep track of than journals or expecting people to check chats.

It mostly just took me a lot of time, it wasn't too much trouble. I haven't drawn things on a large canvas for so long.
I really like her outfit and the colours you picked! It's a couple of the biggest reasons I wanted to try her. I wanted it to be a surprise which is why I just kinda drew it and uploaded it :aww:
