Long Day by RobMacIver Long Day by RobMacIver
Idea: In the run up to London expo 2012 I thought I'll try and catupure the mood of the event with cosplayers as the centerpiece.

Process: Sketched outline of couple in pencil then scanned into photoshop, Redrew the lines and made correction to the line art, the feet and the hands being the most troublesome. Made up background on the spot then coloured.

Notes: Another picture of people sleeping, seem to have a reoccuring theme and also my lazyness shows through, by the end of the project I rushed the line art for the clouds and border. Changed the colour scheme at the very end from a romanctic red hue to a more gothic look with blues and greys.

Number of hours: 30 hours roughly
Layers: 73

I love the looseness of the style. The characters look flexible like liquid. The steps look kind of like tree markings because of those lines on them. It does add interest to the picture. Aside from the two people in the middle, the picture just feels a little empty. I do like your swirl patterns to brighten up the composition though. I just find it a little too quiet.

Sounds like you put alot of work into this, and it shows! Yeah, I can imagine cosplayers would get pretty tired, having to walk around all day in stuffy costumes. xD

A very nice piece of work you've got there. Especially because of the use of bright colours, it gives it that magical effect well done :)

Oh fuck, 30 hours. I used to think I spend a lot on my drawings (about 10-14 hours each). I think I should learn how to be more patient. Your work looks really pretty, I like the guy's pose (the girl's is quite unrealistic and tense) and those awesome cloudy doodles on the left-bottom of the picture. And the colour choice is very nice - it's cold, but calm and sleepy.

lol. yeah my drawings are progessively taking longer to do. I always have a tendacy to move on to the next picture before I'm finished But I held on though on this one and am quite happy with the outcome. Also didn't help I did it 600pdi so went into intense detail that can barly be seen zoomed out (the lines on the man's cloths for example)

I been told the womans pose was unrealist(the right arm bends when it shouldn't) Great observation on the woman looking tense wasn't my intention and didn't notice till you pointed it out. oh well its all a learning porcess and hopefully get the desired effect better next time.
If you liked the clouds doodles check out my other drawing Water Sphere, I go OCD on the lines in that one. Thanks for the most comment was very helpful.
