Romantic Rendezvous

Star! twitter Star! tumblr Star! facebook Star!


Another commission, another wedding pic.

There were a lot of things getting in the way when I was working on this image. First, I had 3 other linearts set up almost simultaneously. After which, I pushed them all aside and took a break for a couple days. Then I figued I should just stick to what needs to be done first and get it done before my computer had to be packed away, lol.

Another thing that got in the way was that this was another wedding picture. I don't mind doing really pretty scenes and all the romantic themes, but I guess what I'm saying is I want a break from that, lol. Ah well, I was getting paid to do it, so I must persevere!!

I was working once again on my coloring style, since I'm still not totally satisfied with why my coloring does not come out the way I plan for it to. I am really pleased with the outcome of this one, but I think there could be a few improvments here and there. As much as the tilt/angle/whatever could be wrong, it was fun to use this upward perspective shot and be able to use a sort of fishbowl effect on the sky (also this will probably be the one of the very few times I ever use the Lens Flare effect provided by Photoshop).

Enjoy more lace!!

Done completely in Photoshop CS.

Time to outline: I don't remember but I think around 16+ hours
Time to color: ~14 hours
Total time: ~30+ hours

I really love this entire piece here. It brings back a lot of feelings I thought have lost in the transition to the real world. Is it okay if I could use this as a reference for a pic I will be working on sometime in the future? I especially love the angle.
