Run--NOW. by artisticTaurean Run--NOW. by artisticTaurean
Before anyone brings it up, the grass is supposed to be tall. Not that you can really tell if it is or not. ^^;

Worked on this all day today, and that was just the coloring. I may or may not have gotten my light sources screwed up somewhere along the way... I haven't CGed anything like this before.

I started a sketch a while back of Reilly about to fire a blast of magic... but it didn't quite look right. Her head was too big, her body was completely out of proportion... So this is a follow-up to that sketch. Much improved, I think.

I'm really pleased with it, so I'm trying not to look at it too much so I don't end up nitpicking it to death. XD;; I originally had lines flowing to the energy forming at her hands, but I decided they'd distract the viewer from Reilly, so I put little flecks of light instead.

Oh, and her eyes? That's what they look like when her Demon side surfaces. They're actually rimmed with black like that. It looks a hundred times better on the sketch, but I like it enough. ^_^

Reilly's mine, so's the art.

I love this I love all your art actualy :)

I wish I could draw that well on a regualr basis. Sometimes I can get things to come out very very well. I'm better on the computer than by hand. (I'm teaching Myself to draw by hand) that reminds me I need some new Nibs and some new ink too. But yeah I generaly am not that good. but sometimes I do something really good and Suprise myself.

*sigh* maybe I'm just too critical of myself. I Know I am on my writing. I guess all artists are that way. We can always fins soemthing we could have done better.

But i love your stuff. this is wonderful. I love the way the energy looks in her hands.

Ooooh, this is VERY nice! I love pictures of characters using magic =3 especially bright magic X3 with flecks. The white outline around Reilly makes her stand out well, too :nod:

I LOVE her hair o-o *prolly wouldn't have the patience to do that kind of shading* and nice job on the head-on profile - those can be hard to do ^^;

Totally couldn't figure out her hair. xD;;; I didn't know how to draw it flying up/pushed back like that! It came out nicely I think, though.

And I wasn't sure if I should put the glow around Reilly, because I tend to use Outer Glow with magic... I'm glad I did though, it looked too dull without it ^_^

Yes, it definitely looks better with the glow ^^ ((hell, everything looks better when it's GLOWING X3))
