I Stole The Moon 'Colored' by shanku I Stole The Moon 'Colored' by shanku
[August 29, 2005]
Yay! Finally posting up this one. It took me like a week to do it, I'm gaining more and more experience on CGing now. Hehe, feel a lil more confident. I'm progressing steadily so far, which is good. (^_^ My idea was orignally to draw an angel stealing the moon from in the water (reflection). Then I somehow became obsessed in elves again and drew an elf instead LOL... It was a tough picture, I had no idea how do do clouds, water, grass, texture, and I was still bad in CGing ppl. However, through this piece, I've learned a lot of things. I hope it turn out good, and that you'd all enjoy looking at it.

Critques & Comments are most welcomed as always!
This is all done in Painter & Photoshop

It's so pretty (especially the designs on the clothes.) What bothers me is the position of the hands look a little awkward, and the feathers on her shoulders look a little pasted on ( I know you drew them, but...) And her shoulders look kind of manly (they should be rounder) and I just don't like the shading on them. Also, the eyebrows are too much like a straight line. But overall, it's very well-done, and I'm probably just picking out all of these things because I'm jealous.

Gorgeous! I'm in love with her outfit! Everything fits together very well and I love the concept! I'd say you're really good at cg-ing. Whats important is that you're improving right? :D Even if I make a picture that looks bad it's worth it for the experience. XD :love:

Even though it would look bad (like this img) know your mistakes and learn from them and improve from it XD

nice outcome, nice color, and nice design on her clothes :)
for crits, i think she could have more reflection of her body on the water.

and she looks very beautiful ;)

very nice, i esp like the skintone! One major aspect that bothers me is how the perspective is skewed.. almost like a fisheye for the bg.. but the character isnt distorted optically. This lady isnt lined up with the sky-and-trees perspective vector.

Yea, I've realized that there was a composition error in the middle of my coloring, but then, i was also trying to catch and fit both the water and and the moon at the same time. It almost feel like I want to redo another one and make it much better XD

Ahh so you did finish. Actually it turned out really nice.

Some coloring advice:
I feel as if you're afraid to have the face covered with the blue shadow color, either that or you are having the light from the water moon reflect to her face too strongly and...ok, you know what? I'll stop...

Damn I really like the designs on her clothes. You've got some real designing skills (kinda envious), now I'll have to up the patterns on your elf magican to par. But man the shoulder peices, the neck piece...all it's amazing. You should go into VG/movie concept art design. :thumbup:

Hahah.. thanks iDNAR. To be honest with ya tho, sorry but I'd like to keep this piece original. Yea, you got a point there, i was afraid of making her face too bluish shadow.. (^^--;;; I really hated location of the lighting when I colored it.. (^^;; I shoudl have like drawn it in a different angel or like make a better composition for it.

LOL... thanks iDNAR, VG/movies... sounds good. I'll keep it in mind (^^;; But I still need to do better than this, so I'll have to work harder! XD

LOL... well, you'd prolly think like that, but then, you don't know if you dry to do line art, they are as hard as coloring, because if you look at the design spects, you have to make sure that everything is right before hand it over to the one who's doing the coloring -_-;; as well as not even one can do clean complicated line art that can be read by everyone. =elsevilla does exceptional line art, they are easy to read and very clean and yet complicated... Gah! *worships worships*

oh nothing... :ninja:

You know, concept artists make tons of money by doing mere sketches. It's the renderers(like me) that have it tough.

Yea you don't really have to listen to this lighting freak, he will turn your mind into a 3D rendering software :O.

But yea its cool, sounds good to me. Although I'd have to say, If I got to color that, (voice changes to Igniz's) it will make a G-*gets shot.

*revived
Looks like I'll have to come up with something just as pretty by myself.

Keep up the good work.
