Zoey by blue-elem3nt Zoey by blue-elem3nt
This is something I've been sitting on for a while, mostly due to an inability to come up with a decent background. Done up from a sketch I liked, inked it digitally then colored. I'll probably return to this one sometime.

Good to see a new piece from you and interesting new rendering style you have adopted. It has a nice focus to it.
Also good form around the hands :]

Thanks! I think I'm finally getting to a point where I'm happy with my style of rendering. It's getting easier to do too ^_^
Especially glad to hear you think I have good form around the hands, that's been trouble for me for a while.
But when will we see a new piece from you?

sound good bro!

Going to try using illustrator for my next upload, and so far probably about a third of the way pencilling it :I

I have finished another pic, but I'll drop that once this pic is done :]

Can't wait to see it! You're stuff is always a pleasure to see.

I'm actually at work on another piece myself, Illustrator line work again. I dunno, I think it's growing on me ^_^ Especially with a tablet using brush strokes, it's awesome!

Cool I'll have to try illustrator with a tablet pen to rough out the line work, then maybe fix it up with the mouse.
Yeah I'll try and sort out some other stuff to free up some of my own drawing time for sure :]

Also, just for reference, I used these youtube vids to figure out the whole inking in Illustrator thing...

what did you use :c?

Thanks! Well I used Illustrator for the line work and good ol' Photoshop for the color. I used a modified version of that "Spicy Curry" brush to get the softer brush work.

Welcome back! I think this is a lovely picture. It's very warm and cozy, which is impressive due to all the blue in the picture. I tend to find blue cold... even that downtuned turquoisey blue in the background, which is one of my favourite colours. I don't know if you're the type to admit it, but that -is- an anime-inspired eye, and fortunately I like big anime eyes, but others might criticise it.

Also... doe. Very feminine when portrayed as anthro, I want to see more of them.

This isn't something I noticed, but my friend is asking where her cranium is at, and I have to agree that she has a remarkably low hairline. I don't know what to suggest because I suck at hair myself.

Thanks! Yeah, I have a heavy eastern influence in my style. Honestly though, I rather enjoy the style so I do incorporate a lot of it into my own. I know some people don't like it, but hey, maybe I'll do a few western styled drawings here and there. I've been meaning to play around with different styles.

And after hearing it, I agree, I kinda screwed up her cranium... that's been a big problem of mine for a while now, I really need to get on fixing that XD

Thank you very much for the input!

Oh yeah, I like it a lot myself, and think my eyes are also a little influenced by manga. It would be interesting to see you try a western-style drawing, though.

I really love the colouring of this, and the sort of "you just walked in on me" expression on her face.
The neck seems to be at a weird angle; it fits being a deer neck, but sort of connects to the body a little off.

Thanks! Yeah, me thinks I need to get back into some life studies. I've had problems with heads and necks for a while now, too long to keep letting them get the best of me XD Gotta get back into studies!

Aaah yeah, I didn't pre-pack anything so in the haste to leave I left my fiddle out. Blah! I was sad.

I went to the art jam two nights straight! But you probably didn't see me during the day since I spent all my time running around shooting people. Drat! We'll have to talk before the con next year or something :P

Good to know you're not dead!

Alas, no. I'm on an out of state coop again! On the bright side, I'll be able to pay my debt to myself off. Blagh! I'd like to go just because it's so close, but yeah. May or may not try next year, though.

Fantastic coloring, and I love that you drew a more uncommon animal as an anthropomorphic creature. Wolves and big cats get old haha, this is quite nice. :)
