Babosa de Mar by SaiyaGina Babosa de Mar by SaiyaGina

This is my contribution to our self published artbook Parallele, on which is to combine the Art Noveau style and Kemonomimi. I love Mucha's art so much ;_;

Parallèle Artbook, selling worldwide next january! in a very cheap price (No more than US$10)

I also submitted this piece to the Otacool 4 contest, I'm so amazed to not only get into the book, it's also in the cover! OMFG *faints* It's a great honor to share a place with so many artists I admire ;__;

Otacool 4 for sale in late December!

I don't know if the reference to the animal is accurate or not, why a sea slug? teeheee, because... arranging the body to a human, seems like she's breathing from her ass! hahaha (yeah, that's the real reason, I love stupid toilet humor)

I'm more active now, I may reply to some comments, yay!

Made in a lot of programs:
Mainframe in Illustrator CS

Post-Edition in Photoshop CS2

Such beautiful color and design. This is a piece that you can stare at for a long time taking in all the details.

Sea slugs are so colorful and fun. I love the dress and the features. Very imaginative representation of the animal.

Did you do the background too? Its amazing.
RedVioletPanda Featured By Owner Jan 27, 2012   Digital Artist
Beautiful work on this, I love the flowing hair and colors. I really like the colors and the fact that she's based off of a nudibranch.

Man that last comment in the artist's description made me laugh.

Muy colorido y la composición de como está hecho el fondo me gusta de verdad. ¡Precioso!

This is gorgeous. The vibrant colors of the character are a beautiful contrast on top of the more muted colors of the (amazingly complex!) background.

How'd you do the amazing background? ;v;

Wow, llevo un rato viendo tus trabajos, y impresionante se le queda corto... me gustan casi todos, tienes una tecnica estupenda, pero lo que me atrae más es la narrativa visual tan dinámica que tienes... se que ya te habran invitado a muchas webs y agrupacines de artistas, pero no puedo sino invitarme a la mía! xD [link] Por ahora es solo un modesto foro, donde algunos nos juntamos para compartir nuestros comics y trabajos varios. Hay unos más experimentados/talentosos que otros pero, compartimos nuestras experiencias y opiniones, y tenemos como meta hacer un fanzine recopilatorio de nuestras obras. Me gustaría que te nos unieras!!

I'm just speechless. You sure deserved your place in the book, no doubt about it.

I can't take my eyes off her now! What do I do?!?

The background on this is beautiful; really like the tarot-card/art-noveau style here!
Jeaflorestar Featured By Owner Jul 8, 2011
¡Excelente dibujo! La forma como delineaste y coloreaste al personaje con blacos y azules da una atmósfera realmente mística.

¡Sigue así!

La primera vez que vi este dibujo fue en el CUCSH de la UdeG muy impresionante sobre todo por el estilo del fondo muy parecido al de Alfred Mucha

I'm falling all over myself, trying to pick out my favourite parts of this deviation to comment on, but... damn. I just can't limit it. Every part of this piece is remarkable, and no, that isn't me being nice or trying to suck up.

The colours caught my eye initially. It's very rare to find bright colours in anything imitating Alphonse Mucha's style, so it's refreshing to see the splashes of yellow against the blue dress/hair and the toned-down background. I love it when people use bright yellow and don't go overboard... I could stare at this all day and it wouldn't give me a headache, unlike other 'bright' drawings that I'm a fan of.

You imitated Mucha's classic backdrop without just ripping it off. There are a lot of your own ideas in this. The creeping aquatic plants that break out of their frame are beautiful, and the numerous ocean references in the design are subtle... I had to study the drawing to catch most of them. I don't even want to know how long this took you!

If I had the money to spend right now, I'd request this as a print or look into getting that book.

I saw this in your personal favorites section and just had to watch you. Also... using multiple programs seems like a really good idea. I always make fails by trying to get clean lines in photoshop, or smooth coloring in illustrator. I would've never thought to combine them. XD

very cute work:>

Hola! Tengo el libro y he visto tu arte en la página 88 y llegue aquí. Yo tambien tuve la oportunidad de entrar al libro y representar a Venezuela (Pág 85). Pero solo coloco el dibujo en pixiv porque no sabia si estaba permitido ponerlo en otra parte. Tu dibujo es precioso. Solo que de verdad no se llama babosa de mar en el libro jajaja xD seria raro. Muchas felicitaciones!!

Big fan of Mucha also, love the colors and detail. Just amazing!
avencri Featured By Owner Feb 9, 2011  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Le hubieras dejado de título solamente "La babosa" para el factor WTF. XD

Fuera de eso, me impresiona como sacaste el diseño de algo que consideraría muy dificil de traducir a humanoide. O_o
