EDIT:
Thank you so much for the DD! This is so amazing, and wow. It definitely made my day a whole lot better. I don't really know what else to say so thank you, thank you so much.

I feel like there's something wrong with this picture, buuuut I can't pinpoint what it is. OTL If you guys have any idea what it is, will you tell me so I'd know? ;;

Anyway, I'm back to drawing VOCALOIDs, er, I mean Miku again. Yay! For some reason, I missed drawing her. Fanart is based on ryuryu's Watercolor >> [link]

When I started working on this, I was like, "I miss listening to ryuryu's songs" and so er, I found Watercolor and decided to draw Miku based on the image in the video. Yeah. The clothes may not be entirely accurate, but I did what I could.

I think this is awesome. I love the amount of negative space, and the parrot. The line work is great too.

How did you make the white dots on the parrot?

I used two types of brushes - sparkles and blood splatter. Most of the dots are from the blood splatter brushes. The larger ones are hand-drawn. They're all on a separate layer because I did a lot of repositioning and stuff to make it not look like blood splatters.

I see. Thanks :)
Did you use white paint after having painted to make them or did you plan them ahead and used the paper for the white colour?

I'm not sure what you're asking about but I'll try my best to answer!

First, just so we're clear this is digital art so I did not use any traditional media when i made this. The color I used was a really pale yellow color. When I set the layer to "Luminosity", it helped make the dots look really bright and sparkly and white-ish in color. The background itself is not white (if you have a paint program you can eyedrop the color and check for yourself). I just picked a bg color that I thought would match with the rest of the drawing and would blend in with the sparkly stuff.

I didnt really plan those ahead. Most of the time when i make art, i think about what kind of end result i should get or maybe just get a general idea of what i want it to look like, and then i just do whatever i can while im working on it. There's a lot of experimentation going on in the process so if you have some kind of paint program, just mess around with the settings a bit and figure out what you like.

i dont know if this made any sense and im sorry if it's a bit too long, but im willing to explain more in case you have more questions!

Oh, it was digital? The title fooled me a little. I thought it was made with physical watercolours. When painting with watercolour, it can be pretty hard to do those white dot effects, like on the parrot's wings. That's why I was wondering what kind of technique you used.

It's still an impressive picture though :)

I've got a few people fooled because of the title, too. Sorry about that!! It's honestly just the title of the song it's based on.

And thank you so much!
