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

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?

Super late, so let's call this a New Year's gift. 

Hope it's a decent rendition. Sorry they're a bit wonky despite my best intentions.


Following last year's fake tradition, I'd like to give back and also make new art. Send me a note if you'd like to get a Christmas gift illustration from me. I'll even try to finish it before Christmas day, haha. 

I'll do it in a style I want and include as many details as I please. But I will try to stay true to the description.
Disclaimer: PG-13 please.

Please don't send me a novella ... just a note will do! 


Star!Star! ABOUT CHRISTMAS GIFTS (closed) Star!Star! Edit 12/21: Forgot to close this, sorry! Thanks for the notes and will reply soon!


Star!Star!ABOUT CHRISTMAS TRADES (based on mutual interest... :lol:)Star!Star!

Because I'm greedy and would like to see new art. Note me with something titled "Christmas Art Trade". Can be a character we choose to illustrate for each other with a twist, etc. (Info required is similar to the above re: character name, short description, ref imgs... only I get to ask for things too! Haha!) If I'm interested and actually free at that point, I'll do it. Otherwise I don't want to leave anyone hanging.

Happy Almost Holidays!

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
