Another not bad idea with failed implementation. Damnation, I can't control the drawing process from the beginning to the end for the present... Thousands of chances corrupt the final result.

But it is not wise to improve single pic for ages. It is better to start another one.

I saw that you won third place on the group's contest, so Congratulations!
but I think you deserve more
U-Joe's avatar
Thanks. (^_^)>
Nope, the results are fair. 1st and 2nd place pics are bloody cute and well done, while this one is not so good. I hope, you don't think that contest was the Finnish conspiracy against the Mankind? ^__^

Next time I'll draw more epic pic... if I will not be too lazy. :3

Since Country Road, I feel your pieces to get more and more depth as you do them, keep this nice job!

And about not achieving your goal... well, that's an artist fate; if it's a curse or a bless, we can't tell, but chasing the image you can never 100% paint is what moves us to always improve. ;)

Thank you, sir. I'll do my best.
You're right, there will be no progress without feeling of dissatisfaction.

Jebus, Cirno's wings look a hundred times more awesome than they actually are.
U-Joe's avatar
Thanks. It was a little bit boring to draw basic 6-crystals pattern wings.

Thanks. But it was planned to do 20% greater... Next time, maybe. :3

Well, it certainly is an interesting angle to do the picture from. And it does look nice even if it didn't turn out the way you wanted it too.

Unfortunately I can't tell you how to fix the problems. I'm not sure of how to add that extra depth (I'm assuming that's what you wanted) :shrug:
U-Joe's avatar
Thank you for it.
Yes the depth is the main problem. How to fix? Don't know, just leave this pic and start another one. And another one... And read more books/articles. And sometimes I'll get proper result... I hope.

I have faith in you :D
U-Joe's avatar
It's really great, because I feel the shortage of my own faith.
But don't worry, I'll do my best. Ò_Ó

Too destiny! :XD:

Srsly though. I was looking at some of my art from when I first came on dA and compared it to where I was now and was simply amazed. I'm sure if you keep trying, you'll eventually get to the point where you can get the results you want.
U-Joe's avatar
I hope so. Yes, I hope it will happen before vultures taste my tough meat. ^^
