Well, I might as well submit this :XD: (I'm not submitting or doing much on DA anyways, lols)

This is the second mock cover that I did to send in to the companies, made in watercolors and colored pencils...
rofl, next time, I'm going to use smoother watercolor paper, lol (the hot-pressed kind). The colored pencils hated this cold-press XD hehe. But I like this mix. C: My new favorite drawing/painting mixture! <3 *is experimenting*

Critique if you wanna, but I'm actually happy with it XD. I tried my best to take in the comments from the last one. Thank you again for your suggestions. I just went to Kinko's on the weekend to print this and some other illustrations for them, so hopefully, I'll have all my submissions mailed out by the end of the week. :D~

After that, I wanna finish up Chapter 7 of Trunks' Date >_> I have 4 pages so far, but you're just gonna hate me more if I submit them without anything after that for like 2 months again, lol. >_>

I've decided that I hate doing portrait oil painting commissions and could never do them for a living. I'm only gonna do one more after my current one (because I already agreed to it to the guy), but after that, I'm done. :| (for a long while, at least.) I need to get back to my comics...
It's been slowly depressing me that I haven't been able to work on them... I only did the one for my mom (for Mother's Day) because I care about her, not the money... portrait-ing (for money) is just not "ME".

...And I think I'm done now ^^ heheh :giggle:

OH, WAIT! GOD, I didn't even talk about the picture!! lol! *SPAZ* >_>
This is Teri, without all her fancy hairstyles and crazy clothes. (Only because she just showered, lol). The guy in the picture's name is Toran.

Um... the rest is self-explanatory...? (I think? (is it, Gena?) ^^;) XDD lol :faint: :sprint: that's all I talked about it?? yes!! |D :zombie:
When I disappear like this, it just means I need to do some figuring out for myself. I'll be 'back' soon, I hope...

Your drawing and coloring skills are always improving and a always a pleasure ot eye =)
My only suggestion would be to flip the candy cane vertically and horizontally. I'm reading it as an "f" rather than a "t" ^^; Just a suggestion though.

Well, I'd like to be polite and say that if I saw this in the shop, I'd pick it up and skip through the pages.

But, I'm not going to lie to you...

In truth, I'd sprint to the shop, molest (yes molest >.> ) the shelves in a search for this cover, pick it up, hastely and proctectively embrace it, before running as fast as possilble to the counter to pay for it. Then read it, over and over.

This is definatly an improvement! I'd love to read this! It looks so much more interesting! There are so many things I want to know about this now!

^-^

That's really good! :) But if she just got out of the shower and isn't even dressed yet, why does she already have her jewelry on? :confused:

Oh, okay; that makes sense, I suppose. I do take my jewelry off, and I just sorta assumed most people did the same. Learn something new everyday! :)

I only usually take it off if I have to clean it or something, or if it's for matching what I'm wearing...

Whoa, this is impressive! The coloring's amazing, girl. :wow::hug:One tiny thing I noticed, though: her arms are awkward- I'm not sure why. (Maybe I'm imagining it.) It still looks good to me, though. XD And by the way, I'm spazzing out over her teeth, lol. :dance: They're only perfect. I suck at teeth sometimes. >.< But hey, you hit the nail on the dot...Mock cover? Pfft, publish this, lol Excellent work. :D Take care. :love:

WOW!

O_O

You listened to critiques and you remembered them!

This is amazing :D
It is a cover, the typography is legible, big enough, and balanced with the rest.

Everything is so good! :D

I'm glad i could help you (along with many others :P)

When you weren't posting for a while, i thought that you took the advices the wrong way, but, i see you didn't! :) Glad of that.

Just.... one thing, it's tiny, but i can't stop myself...
I would flip the image of Toran, so he's looking her way. That way, the text won't intrude with this piccy. Just using photoshop.

It's... i would like to see it, but... that's just minor!

You see... i'm way too obsessive! sorry T_T

Anyways, i love it :)

lol! it's okay. I'm sure the companies are really 'obsessive' and particular too about what markets well and stuff. I fipped the image for you, heheh :XD: [link]

hmm, I don't know. I think I still kinda like this one better. Maybe there's just too much empty space in the sky, or something, or I'm just too used to seeing it this way? :giggle: XD :heart: thank you though!! your help realy...well, HELPED me! lol! :hug: I'm glad you like this one better :giggle: :hug: ^_^
