DEEP updated by cos22 DEEP updated by cos22
for the contest: kick your own @ss.
i heard about this contest thru ~mayamei
it's a redo of this pic [link]
the deadline's today...srry, for those ppl who wanted to enter... i just found out bout this 2 days ago...OTL

redoing an old pic was harder than i thought!
it feels kinda restrictive. but than again, i don't have to worry about the composition and stuff XDD
it was interesting to revisit an old work tho. My skills really needed a lot of polishing then >w<

edit: as u can see, this is more of a semi-realism style than my usual anime style. i was experimenting~ it was painful, but fun~
the water was a challenge. i was confused on how i should start >_<
i also struggled a bit with clothing. Since it's so plain, i had to make the folds look nice.. and it was hard; the lighting threw me off for one thing.
leaves were also painstakingly long to do... y in the world did i drew leaves in my old pic in the first place??

ok i should stop complaining..

9-10 hrz

Wow~. You're so skilled with anime and semi-realism! >u<

I adore the colors and coloring. Especially how they brought out the face and created a atmosphere a little dark but very calm.

I think you did a fabulous job on the water, from its composition/form to the colors. And every bit of the background looks fantastic. The texture and color in the wall are perfect, and the leaves have a nice fullness to them and great coloring. Maybe it was good that you drew them the first time? ^u^'

Lots of nice details and great colors~.

owwh..maybe it's your secret recipe, but I wonder what program do you use? adobe, corel or sai?
the bursh can blend without being blurred..I was deadly stuck to find where I can fnd the brush ehich can have those effects..

secret recipe? 8DD i don't really apply the same recipe for every one of my pic cuz i change styles often~ if u want other ppl's secret recipes, go to youtube and search tut vids~

i almost always use SAI, and PS for minor editing.
i just use default brushes, no special brush for blending, U blend it. It's more about technique than tools.

Well, you certainly kick your own ass!~ (even after only a year O_o)
This picture is very pleasing to the eye, soft colours (despite they're dark) and the atmosphere is very calming... the leaves are so well painted!~ Looks beautiful, all in all. The lightning is gorgeous, and the water is also so great; I don't understand how you do it... >3< :heart:
