Entry for UsagiYogurt's Contest
I think it came out too dark but it was overall ok ^^ It's Chika with some Queen Angelfish. Probably not accurate with the location, but It's ok here kinda, aha.
I used an oil paint brush for the dress & environment, watercolor brush on the skin, & acrylic on the hair. I think Medibang washed out the colors towards the end & it made me sad >< I hope it's ok still. I'm really proud about the hair & dress because this was my 1st painted piece & almost completely lineless, which is almost a 1st for me. The background was made with the help of this tutorial.

I had my best friend help me a bit with this piece, mainly the highlights & I love her so much for the help ;w; her & her bf helped by giving advice & their opinion on the work & I appreciate the help so much, though their work is definitely better XD Hopefully I'll get on their level someday.

I hope you enjoy! ;w;/


Background: Photoshop

Over the years you've worked hard, and I think you did a very good entry for a contest here! The hair impresses me a lot, and I can tell how much effort you put into this contest entry! The angelfish have good color too :)

Yes! Thank you so much! ^^ It means a lot! I used a reference to the angelfish for the colors & I love how hair flows underwater so I tried my best to replicate it!

If it were my or your character, I'd be ok with it, but it's someone else's character, sorry aha. I'll try to recreate this kind of work for future stuff though! ;w;b

You're welcome ^^ Don't compare yourself to others. We all have different levels that we worked hard to get to & we all have different styles. So no need to worry! ^^
