Harmonia: Banner

This is a massive illustration I did for our JRPG game in development, Harmonia.

It's 80 inches tall and was made into a banner stand for our upcoming convention appearances =). Yikes, the file got so huge, Photoshop was refusing to save it near the end saying the file was too big. That nearly gave me a heart attack since I've never encountered that problem before lol. News to me that Photoshop had a 2GB file size limit^^;; There's ways around it though. 

The Harmonia game features both classic JRPG elements with new twists. This includes fully hand-animated battle characters and monsters. I've done all the character animations myself, and most of the monster designs and animations as well. It became a really ambitious project, but I think it'll be worth it for everyone to really enjoy. 

This was done purely in Photoshop (drawn & colored). I'll go into detail on how I apply shadows (tones) in the artwork, which is applicable with any painting style, not just cel. To recieve this tutorial, become a supporter on my Patreon and get a lot more stuff, too =).

Thanks so much for checking it out!

The Glassworker looks amazing and as key animator on it you would have excelled. Try stay well and work incrediably hard on it.
Truly jealous of your anime work and animation opportunities. I thought from the start when I first stared working for you your Shadow Magic could be amazing and a reality.
Keep going and I continue with my manga work.
With luck and persistence it will pay off.

Animation does continually challenge me, which is also why I like it xD. It's never the same. I'm sure things will come together, in time.

Astounding banner Tiffa. Your very competent at this sort of work and animation.
Once again the characters are so dynamic and the cell look to these is the very best work.
I too am very fond of 2D animation like these works of yours.
It's my favourite probably since I grew up with it.
I'm truly blessed to work on soria for you and will stop at nothing to make it my best work of Manga even in my realitive short time in illustration, 9 years.
Your work is very good.
I believe you can do it too Tiffa with great work and patience.
The challengers are part of the work and like the glass blower can be ever complicated.

Thanks, Adam! Yeah, the animation style seems to be my specialty since I've done it for so long. I'd love to spend some study time on painting with an emphasis on composition and lighting. Toooo busy lol. It's definitely a pleasure to be working with you for so long! Hope to continue and share in success!
