Fire and Water

Pffffffff (dead corpse in front of the computer)


I've never done something this ambitious before! I think I could have continued to fix tiny details until the end of the world. So... this morning, I said to myself: STOP! I hope my friend will like it!

Maybe I'll make a print of it if it has lots of views. Feedback and comments are very welcome and greatly appreciated!

I've disabled download. I don't want this to be stolen. Here are some details shots: [link] .

Now: Credit time!

-This whole work wouldn't have been made without this amazing 'tut: [link] . Ok, there are some similarities and it's obvious that I got inspiration from this, but still... This deviant has even published a book on how to paint and I've read it (but I must say the book isn't very helpful, it's just a buch of pic's with a little comments on each, stating the technique used and there are only a few hints).

-Here, a hair coloring 'tut I adapted with my software and preferences: [link]

-And there is my ref' for the water: [link]

By the way, I've finally hit 2000 pageviews. Thanks a lot, guys!

coucou :) Ton dessin est vraiment bien et voici mon avis :

la source de lumière est en arrière plan donc les perso devraient être beaucoup plus sombre et dé-saturés je pense, ( un peu comme ici ou ici . )
Je trouve aussi les cheveux trop homogènes, j'aurai vu plus de variante dans la couleur pour structurer la chevelure. Par exemple autour de la tête se serait très clair (ex : blanc ) puis au milieu, plus foncé ( ex : brun/violet ) , et entre les deux une couleur vif (rouge)..heu je sais pas si c'est très bien expliqué mais un peu comme ici

Par contre les détails ( bijoux, nuages, make up ) vraiment très bien ainsi que l'utilisation du violet dans la peau et ambiance/emotion très bien retranscrit :D
Bref, beaucoup de potentiel et j'ai hâte dans voir plus :D

Ouah le pavé ! huhu et n'hésites pas a venir m'aider sur mes dessin aussi :highfive:

Merci beaucoup pour ta critique spontanée et bien construite qui m'a fait très très plaisir. ♥

Tu as tout à fait raison, le plus gros défaut de cette illu, c'est l'éclairage des personnages... Ca m'apprendra à faire le fond à la fin et non pas en même temps, :(. Les cheveux sont mon cauchemar... en plus, va savoir pourquoi, j'en dessine invariablement des longs. ><'

Je vais passer voir ta galerie également!

What a lovely seen! I love the mood. Forgive my ignorance, but what is GIMP?
Mirving's avatar
Thanks a lot!

The GIMP is a FREE software that is almost as powerful as Photoshop CS#. :) It has the same main features and supports the tablet. I'm a little surprised that a skilled artist as yourself doesn't know about it, it's quite famous. ;)

Hi :w00t:
You was featured here > [link]
Mirving's avatar
Wow, thanks a lot! I wasn't really expecting you to feature it 'cause there are much better art than mine.

I am really glad! :glomp:

You did good concept and composition, the man really remembers water, and the woman fire, and there is a overall balance between red and blue.

But one detail, even you having removed the download option, it is still possible to printscreen the art in zoomed in mode.
Mirving's avatar
Yeah, I thought about this way to steal art as well but I didn't want to put a watermark on it, 'cause it appears right on the faces of the characters.
Even if someone makes a printscreen, the quality won't be as good as the original would, 'cause I worked on a 4960x3508 px wide pic.

Thanks a lot for your comment, though, I really appreciated it!

Et ben ! on peux dire que j'aurais vu tout les détail de ton oeuvre ces énorme ! bravo, je met en favori !
Mirving's avatar
Merci! Ca m'a permis d'apprendre pas mal de chose, même si finalement, j'ai tellement pris l'habitude des brosses par défaut que j'ai pas beaucoup utilisé les autres. ^^
