wavering between anime and realism


Art Goals since December 6, 2009
To improve technically and thematically.
I will comment on every single picture I add to my favorites. (From now on, because I am not going through the hundreds in my Favorites already...)

JAN 2012
Some specific aesthetic goals...
1. lighter/more graceful outlines (anime style).
2. lower color saturation. Dec 2013
3. at least one well-worked, epic, dynamic piece.
4. at least one un-sloppy, finished anime piece with unfudged background.

AUG 2012
One high-key painting, one low-key painting.

JULY 2014
Predictably, I have met none of my goals!
You have entered the :sun:Sunburst!Era, where almost every image has garish back-lighting featuring a sunburst!

:bulletred: ethereal/beautiful/softer works
:bulletred: character interactions and scenes
:bulletred: full environments with better perspective and angle

Crowded Thoughts by vitellan
Crowded Thoughts
It's been so long and I feel terrible for not having anything nice to share!

Anonymous, I probably know you IRL, but thank you for your support and the +1 year subscription. I did notice it a few months ago but had literally nothing. Just goes to show that not exercising art brain = withered art brain and no creativity.
But hopefully will claw my way out! 

It's messy and unmarketable and overfiltered, but I welcome critique. 

Fish: personal reference
PaintTool SAI, Photoshop CC
Oceans by vitellan
It's been such a long time that I can't achieve any of the colors or effects I want, but it's a start.
Throwback to an old illustrated story, also with whales and little basis in reality.

Paint Tool SAI,  Photoshop CS 5.1
Reference used for whales. :)
Time: 4 hrs?
Music: here
Tom Marvolo Riddle by vitellan
Tom Marvolo Riddle
It has been too long since the last time I've painted, so here's an exercise before I try anything more thematically ambitious.

SAI & Photoshop CS5.1
Time: 3-4 hrs
Reference used.
Guess the actor!
I would have cast him as Tom Riddle.
Port of Call by vitellan
Port of Call
The belated New Year's traditional pic with dragon + ship. Different dragon as you'll notice it doesn't have arms. :3

Another year in which to feel dissatisfied with my art, but getting inspired to do better, at least. Discovering that some of the things I enjoy most are not things I enjoy drawing... like backgrounds... etc.

This picture brought to you by 8tracks.
Paint Tool SAI, Photoshop CS5 something.
Time: 4-5 hours?

just wanted to say i'm in love with your gallery  *^*
there's a kind of pensive transience conveyed through each work that is absolutely enchanting! 
vitellan Featured By Owner Aug 18, 2015
Hey! Thanks for the super nice comment :D
We should paint chat/do some kind of art meme sometime (if you don't mind how chaotic my process is)
