evening glow by loish evening glow by loish
this was sort of an exercise in using reference. i decided to push towards a more realistic result by observing photos of sunsets, perspective from below (for the face), jellyfish, and hands. i think that i focused on this too much and the picture turned out too static, but it was good practice.

drawn in photoshop CS3 with an intuos3 tablet. textures from , tips on how to use textures can be found here - [link] and for other tips check out my f.a.q - [link]

EDIT: resubmitting, because apparently it did not show up in poeple's message centers. wtf?? sorry to those who commented and faved on the other version.

I love that you draw people with dreadlocks. As a dreadie myself, it's pretty rare that I see them depicted in the artistic world.

Sue those fuckers for using your art with out your consent.
nanoco1000 Featured By Owner Jan 8, 2013
You should sue them and have the consolation be that you make about 50% of their profit from each book

Found this though tumblr. Something about a book company stealing it. Hope thats been settled, this is an amazing art.
ThedasScholar Featured By Owner Jan 7, 2013  Hobbyist Artist
from what ive read on the company that used this art for a cover, it seems they already talked with the artist, apologized, and removed the artwork from their site. I hope this is true.
AyameSuzuki Featured By Owner Jan 7, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
Me as well, thanks for the update, I am quite late with the game anyways considering I saw it like 2 hours ago.
Ramavatarama Featured By Owner Jan 7, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Indeed, the publishing company released a retraction and has taken the covers down. [link] (in spanish)

The swift response and apology of the company makes me believe that they comissioned a work that resulted plagiarized from another artist and had no intention into stealing Loish's art.
loish Featured By Owner Jan 11, 2013
actually all of their covers are stolen and their apology more or less amounts to "we're sorry we got caught", IMO.
Ramavatarama Featured By Owner Jan 11, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Really? that is a shame. *sigh*

I wanted to give them the benefit of the doubt, a small kindness to my compatriots. Alas, that is just not cool :(
nightreaper8484 Featured By Owner Jan 7, 2013
