Erina and Reiya Carter

Medium : Digital Painting
Software : Gimp 2.6

My entry for spadiekitchenqueen 's contest :)
Erina and Reiya are the two daughters of Azami Fujihara and Ian Carter (Old drawing spotted :D). Ian Carter is an investigator that earned quite a reputation in finding missing people. He's engaged by a very rich family whose daughter Evelyn has recently disappeared...

Later on, after solving the case in some sense (Yeah I will not spoil my own story, that wouldn't be fun =p), he started to have some kind of problems in the region. Ian is a gambler and not really an honest man, but how do you want to obtain good information with only the legal ways huh ? Anyway, he started to move from places to places until he arrived somehow to Omoichidô village. Here he quickly sympathized with a woman named Azami. Her stunning ability to store information raised immediately Ian's interest who thought he could use it in his investigations. He proposed her some kind of partnership and from times to times, Azami helped Ian in his work.

Eventually their relationship shifted to something more tender... And from this union are born two children. Erina, the eldest, is currently 16. She inherited the golden hair of her father, the curls and the features of her mother. Unfortunately, she doesn't have any special ability... Reiya, the youngest one is 12, but seems a lot younger and a lot of people usually think she's 8. This is also caused by her very special personality... Reiya barely speaks, she seems locked in her own world. She inherited the amazing memory of her mother, but she's currently unable to release the information she absorbed in books. She spends almost all her time reading: she knew how to read at the age of 3, yet she hadn't pronounced any word. Now she only speaks by quoting books. She's quite a tomboy in her appearance despite having inherited her mother's hair.

Unfortunately, the girl's parents disappeared mysteriously 3 years ago, and the girls swore to find them by taking over their parents' business.

This is lovely! I love all the earthy tones used in this, the contrasting ages and facial features, and how soft everything looks. :3

Thank you very much :)
I hope that I doesn't appear too blurry, I wanted it to be soft but still sharp in some places (for instance eyes) to attract the viewer's attention :meow:

I think I've also a habit of reading comments and then subconsciously adding a bit of what others have said into my own... :iconlazycryplz:
I'll just edit the comment above:
"Holy dancing Daleks!

Eh ben, tu t'es pas foulée, pour le sol! Et quand on regarde l'écran à 3mm de distance, on peut voir que les lèvres d'Erina sont un peu déformées!
Et....! Et... et... c'est tout. Ce dessin est vraiment magnifique, tu t'améliores vraiment à une vitesse injuste. Les textures sont super chaleureuses et harmonieuses, bien encrées dans le dessin. Rien à dire sur les proportions et l'anatomie, le dessin parait vraiment vivant. Il est sublime.

Je compatis pour ta palette, sinon. La mienne m'a fait le même coup ainsi que mon logiciel pendant près de deux mois. Sinon, ça fait donc 8 ans que tu dessines?

Pour le sol, j'avais pas d'idée géniale effectivement, je voulais représenter un chemin de terre ou d'herbe rase, qui mènerait à la berge d'un lac, mais mes tentatives pour texturer davantage cette zone se sont révélées des échecs monumentaux :meow:

Mais je suis contente si malgré tout le dessin semble harmonieux, j'ai eu beaucoup de mal avec ce foutu décor, j'ai peint des feuilles pendant 3 semaines au moins sans rien faire d'autre, j'ai cru devenir folle x_x et ça ne me plaît toujours pas d'ailleurs, j'ai l'intention de travailler sérieusement les environnements.

L'anatomie aussi. Si les lèvres sont la seule erreur anatomique, c'est un gros soulagement... Je suis dans une période de remise en question où je me rends compte que j'ai des lacunes dans un peu tous les fondamentaux même si je le cache sous une belle colorisation :(

Pour le dessin, oui et non. J'ai toujours pas mal dessiné quand j'étais petite, mais comme tous les gosses, juste en griffonnant une princesse moche devant un château déformé et en étant trop fière de moi :D

Après en fait j'ai commencé à écrire une histoire en fin de collège (j'ai d'ailleurs écrit un livre entier de 700 pages pendant cette période), et je me suis remise un peu plus "sérieusement" au dessin à cette époque en voulant illustrer mon histoire, en représenter les personnages dans un style très "Tales of" ou "Fire Emblem", dans lesquels j'étais à fond.

C'était cette époque et ce style là [link] . Ensuite en 2008, il y a eu la terminale, le bac, puis la prépa, et j'ai complètement lâché le dessin durant ces années-là.

Je m'y suis remise légèrement pendant l'été 2011, un peu comme avant, en mode un dessin de temps en temps pour me détendre, sans plus d'ambition. Et pour une raison inconnue, c'est autour du mois de Février que j'ai migré progressivement vers le réalisme, délaissant mes précédentes tentatives stylistiques genre ça [link] .

Et à peu près depuis Février, je dessine de plus en plus, j'ai jamais été prise de manière aussi intensive et longue dans un loisir, d'habitude je m'en lasse au bout de 2/3 mois, mais là ça devient limite une drogue, je fais presque que ça, et quand je lève le nez c'est pour me rendre compte "Merde, ça fait au moins 2 ou 3 mois que j'ai pas donné de nouvelles à mes amis" T_T

Donc oui, je dessine sur ordi depuis 8 ans, mais la courbe est pas linéaire du tout, elle a de gros trous, et une montée fulgurante ces derniers mois :o

It's me who should thank you :)

I was very touched that you invited me to participate your contest, I appreciate a lot having "active" watchers that do appreciate my art, it's so rewarding and motivating.

And in the first place, I should thank you for setting up this contest, it was a bright idea for offering this tablet, and you're also giving a ton of other prices ^^

And there are also those four people you offered premium membership. And you extended the deadline of the contest to let everyone participate.

And you are commissioning so many young artists who are surely very happy that someone help them to start in the field.

I don't know you for long enough to make this list complete, but this short extract shall show you that you're a great person and that you're the one who deserve all the thanks :D

I realised that until now, I haven't done any "yellowish" piece, so this is my attempt at using a new colour scheme :)

This is so beautiful! I love the softness to it and how the colors work together. So very realistic, and I really like how Reiya's eyes stand out :aww: I'm glad you stuck with it through the technical difficulties - it turned out just gorgeous! Best of luck in the contest :D

I'm glad you think the colours work together, it's always a struggle to have characters well integrated in an environment, and this one isn't perfect yet, but I'll work on it :)

Thanks for your encouragements !
