wavering between anime and realism


Art Goals since December 6, 2009

I will make art that has meaning beyond its aesthetic value, and I will push myself 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

Sommertag by vitellan
Summer is over.

Paint Tool SAI; Photoshop CS5.1 (filters)
1 hour.

A bit different from what I usually paint but also derivative of what I've been seeing lately in terms of art. Also was watching "Jane Eyre" (the latest film version) and the melodrama leaves me feeling meh, while the scenery looks direct out of an Alan Lee painting.

(What does everyone think of the new DeviantArt layout/look?)
So real life is a constant state of busy-ness and I haven't been able to post or make as much new art as I'd like. But recently I've decided to try building an actual portfolio based on everything I have learned and hopefully will be learning. 

Unlike most people, my goal is to make my tumblr the more polished collection of rando art. =P But maybe eventually there'll be a sharper divide given how I'll be concentrating on certain looks I'm not sure will interest my current watchers. huge incentive for y'all to come follow me on tumblr, I'm sure

Anyway -- please follow me and challenge me using the "ask" box, as well as critiquing/giving feedback/reblogging (only if you like it of course)! If you keep an art tumblr blog, imagine how many reiterations of lovely things we can spread through reblogging! We'll be like a network of awesome. Or something.

Girl and Wolf by vitellan
Girl and Wolf
Edit: Major refining + trying really hard to make it look less like a beheading.

Pretending I can be a professional artist. Meh.

I also just realized it looks like someone got beheaded. Now, you, too, can enjoy this insight!

Photoshop CC, CS5.1; SAI
Keep Flying by vitellan
Keep Flying
I didn't intend for this to be another back-lit, double-eyed, giant flying fish (ship)... maybe I just default to it. The two people are quite midgety but I'll keep on trying to paint more than one person at a time.

I stared up just to see
With all of the faces, you were the one next to me.

Time: ~4 hrs
Tools: SAI & Photoshop
Music (and title): If I Lose Myself (OneRepublic)*

*On loop. I dare you.
