Stellar Selebration by nishi Stellar Selebration by nishi
I couldn't think of a word for birthday that started with an S, and I love the long forgotten word stellar, so there ya go.

I haven't come out with anything lately, especially because I haven't come out with anything serious, well done, or classy-ish... so here, I think I finally got his character to look a little more normal because everyone knows I never get it right (Especially the eyes). @.@ And yup, I do love random backgrounds, so I made a busy space one which is probably too distracting, but I liked making it. :aww:

So anyways, happy birthday Mister Tobers! :3

Toby belongs to +tobyf

Whoa, this pic is amazing! O_O You made everything look so detailed. Great job on the background. The stars and constellations look awesome. I also like how everything is colorful, how many of the objects have their own color. :) There are probably some other stuff that I missed, but you do a great job of pleasing others with yours gifts. Well done.

Thank you very much! Even if I over do it, I like putting a lot in my pictures, sometimes it's intentional that some is missed... if you put a lot in, you can notice different things each time... and it's interesting seeing what stands out to others. :3 Even if I don't always succeed, I always want to try my best doing things for others... and that's part of what makes it fun. :B Thank you muchly again for all the kind words!

Huh? Did I say that adding too much was a bad thing? Sorry if I implied that. ^^;

No no, you didn't at all! A lot of people say that though, and I know what they mean, but I like it. ^^ I just mentioned that because you added in a comment that shows what I like about adding to much into a picture. Sorry for the confusion! X3

Just practicing. ^^ Basically, you get a base color for the part you want to be fur, then you either use the air brush tool or color and blur to have light and dark areas on the base color, and then I use a pen tool at size 0.1 and create each strand of fur. :B Not too difficult. ^^;

From your flashes you're not all that bad as an artist, though I'm sure those were for fun rather than serious, I'm sure you're still quite good. :3

0.0 Certainly unusual... but then again who wouldn't want to have a birthday party in the middle of space, eh? I don't know what kind of space this is though... Anyway, it's a fabulous picture and I really like the the furry texture you put on Mr. Tobias. Just don't let the cake float away, though.

Thank you sir! I just guessed space would be a good place to go with the word stellar, because that's the order I work in. :B Very nice to see you around again. =) *Chases after floating cake*

And nishi looks adorable, chasing a cake. :giggle: The shading on nishi looks fabulous, and even though the background is a bit too busy for my taste, the picture overall was nicely done. Keep up he great work. :heart:

Holy gee! O_____O;;

You honestly ought to be getting a little more attention for your CG work. You write great comments, and your CG skills are looking amazing now. Very creative title on this. Interesting way to spell 'celebration', too. XD Hehe.

I think it can definatly be said that the background for this is just as full of life as the characters. The rainbow, the constellations (complete with connect-the-dot look so we can tell what they are! ^^), planets and everything else add some creativity and spunk to this. Nishi is even floating after that cake..!

Toby looks cool, too. You did a good job of making him look fuzzy. I like his dressy attire. =] Both characters look really lively in what they're doing, and the whole picture comes together really well.

Happy birthday to Toby! ^__^

Excellent piece of work, Nishi. Very well worth your time, and I love the way this is done all in color with no visable outlines.

It's very pretty, not just the characters but also background-wise - you did nicely on the starfield, the planets and the various other constellations. Not only that, the various lights around the planet or floating in the stars look futuristic as well, and with the different brightness levels very realistic. In fact, the 'net' around the red planet (mars? ;P ) could as well be a transportation system in a distant future - who knows? But it shows you're definitely very well capable of drawing it, so it might be worth a try? :giggle: Anyhow, back to the picture - Tobias and Nishi are both drawn all cute and detailed, on Tobias you can see the fur perfectly fine, and Nishi seems to be even more detailed, especially his clothings - it looks very realistic, his jacket has volume and seems to be pretty warm too (made of felt?), on his jeans you can see the stitches and the pocket - very nice, that must have been a lot of work *-* The same goes for the cake, it's incredibly detailed, the snowman is perfectly visible with all the detail such as the carrot-nose, and the candles shaped as numbers are easy to distinguish - add to that they're really nicely shaded - impressive. The star-belts vary in colour (from red to white, or from white to blue, when they come closer to the blue pulsar-thingy, or the colourful 'rainbow' - technique-wise I cannot find anything to critique, it's done perfectly, with loads of dedication and detail (personally, the way you did made the blue belt on the top fuzzy looks the softest, I always try hard to achieve this effect, but it's pretty hard to so, even if it's just lines - they either look too bright, or too messy). Expression-wise I think Nishi looks a bit tired - must be because of the eyelid that far down, but I know it must be tough to draw them on Yoshis. Everything else on him, from pose to anatomy is great. On Tobias, his eyes might stand out a tad from the fur, instead of being 'inside', casting shadow on the top of them usually does the trick, but I'm sure you'll find out the best way to do it, for you. His arms look 'hip' with them getting gradually thicker towards the end (without muscles, know what I mean?) but I think that's the effect you wanted to achieve - they're floating in space, after all. He's cute looking, with loads of fur, and a fitting pose too, so there's nothing to complain, you did well. Also, I don't find the background distracting, it's fitting the theme very nicely, so don't worry about that.
In fact, all the detail makes one wonder whether you draw at a larger size - I'm pretty sure you don't, because of the way who fine the smaller lines look like; it's still an achievement to put that much detail in so little space. Oh, and you remembered the day too, perfectly, without me ever mentioning, which is no less impressive - I thank you a lot for it, I really owe you something. In fact, it makes me feel guilty, seeing you spending so much time and effort on these pictures - you shouldn't have to. This one must have taken you a couple of days, if not weeks. I still don't know how to thank you for this - but for now rest assured it's a very well done drawing, and most dearly appreciated. :aww:

I tried out a lot of different things with your eyes- long, short, circular, black, yellow, pupil'd, I had to make a whole other layer for them since I had to reapply the fur when it didn't come out right. @.@ By the time the day came around (I didn't think I'd end up finishing on time, but I did! =D) I just went with what I had, since nothing else seemed to work out fine enough. X3 If I ever do eyes like this again, I'll take your advise and use shadows for sure though. :aww:
And I still work with uber-magnification most of the time, but it'd be fun (And time stealing) to try out a big picture with a ton of detail like you do, I'm sure. ^^ Maybe with enough practice I can try that out sometime... By then everything'll be futuristic like you said this picture looked though. =P Anywho, thank you so very much Mister Tobers, don't feel guilty at all, you earn everything you get, and of course I'd remember your birthday (Hopefully it was a blast and a half)! ;P Ciao!
