This Stuff Rusts by drcloud This Stuff Rusts by drcloud
Figured it was about time I half killed myself working on a picture.

Foolishly, my sad-girl-in-the-snow picture made me think that I could colour pictures reasonably quickly. This one brought me back down to earth... although it "only" took a bit over a day, so I suppose that's not so bad.

I'll forgive myself the whole "staying up stupidly late" thing.

So, yus, this is the Mittens cast (...if you don't know what Mittens is, you'll have to go digging around my stuff - it's an ongoing joke, in a way). Watch in amazement as I draw a picture with multiple people, a background, some guys, a smidgen of humour, and some boobs for good measure.

If I keep this up, I might start thinking I can do this art thing :D

Lol, found this digging around in my faves. I honestly can't believe the last comment was posted almost a year ago. This really deserves more attention than it's gotten...

Let me guess, that's your main character going off to fight alone while everyone else worry about their equipment, right :iconnotimpressedplz: ?

Well, IT'S BRILLIANT!!! This is very good ^^ I could only wish I could colour as well as you, let alone fast.

I think I get it, everyone else is wearing metal gear that will rust if it gets wet except the chick with the cross bow. Amazing job on the expressions.

Usually when I comment, I try to find something smart to say like: “I like the colours or details or the water is well done”. But this time I just want to say that it’s damn awesome picture! :) Everything is perfect, or almost perfect.

Those light reflextions against the characters clothings/armours are extremely well done. Not to mention the lightning against the closest character's jacket and shirt. Blimey! ^^

Awesome pic! The lighting is so great. I love how you cast the shadows perfectly on things. Real great touch on the water reflections too.

I'm curious though. You mentioned a little over a day spent coloring. Was this coloring the length of the entire day, or just on and off when you found the time to? Just trying to get a better idea of exactly how much time was spent on this.

Oh, and as always : Much :heart: for boobs. ^o^
