Daydream by minties Daydream by minties
Finally finished x___x please full view for me :pray:

I was playing around coloring with photoshop last night so i was going for a simple pose portrait kinda. After 3hrs messing i liked how the pic was turning out so i went ahead and finished it today and im happy with it, probably the best i've done in a long time. I now love photoshop! I find drawing in it so much faster, atleast for me. *throws oc in the back* i'll keep oc for hair still :D

Random characters and background! no ref.

Edit: For some reason, the link to this was broken and showed no thumbnail. I uploaded the image again so it should work now.

Time: approx. 8hrs total
Tools: Photoshop 7

You have a very nice, smooth style. It seems almost polished, really. This picture was nice, especially in the way that the two characters contrasted so intensely.

Really nice coloring and the colors are just as good, only one problem (someones probably pointed this out, but I'm not sure, won't hurt) They are tilted sideways, but if you look at it with the ground straight then they are still tilted :O
I'm not sure, I'm just tilting my head, but w\e
Still real nice :D

I used to use openCanvas... until I got my computer reformatted and it went bye bye. ;___; My brother in law is thinking of getting me Photoshop. And you say it is better? Oooh, I do hope so. I fell in love with openCanvas. :heart: It was such a simple program. x]

I love the background! You are one of the very few lucky people who can draw such things. x] I wish I was. lol
Such lovely colors you chose. They are so warm feeling... mmm...
I love their hair! AND their clothes are really good too! They inspire me, such a great design... :+fav: Your art is marvelous. =D
minties Featured By Owner Oct 16, 2005
I still use OC for sketching and lineart cause of the smooth lines and the zoom doesnt pixelate at any zoom % unlike photoshop and many other software. But since this has not lineart i just went straight into painting and PS can blend colors so much easier so its alot faster to paint in PS in my opinion. As for simplicity, PS has alooooot of features and may take awhile to know where the tools are. But im lazy to learn so i only use normal paintbrush and airbrush xD
SkeletalWings Featured By Owner Oct 16, 2005
xD Aaaaaah... I see!
Yeah, in openCanvas it took me ages to finish a picture. x] Like this one picture took two months... I think that is waaaaaaay too much time. xD
Hmm... I may end up just using paintbrush and airbrush tools as well. x]
Thank you so much for telling me all this! =D :hug:
