Hey Mika! It's good to know that you're still making wonderful art. I love the shading. :D
mika 2010/7/8 - 11:41:14
Why thank you young apprentice of Bobo Fett.

every feature in this drawing is UNREAL CITY. haha man, master of black and white, you are. the hair just looks so real, I could just touch it! <3 <3 mika
jakusama 2011/3/3 - 0:31:55
Geeze. Mika. Seriously. I can't decide to hate or love you. You're so freaking amazing. The details are phenomenal, the hair is lifelike... and yet its so abstract but it looks to real...my brain is confused. Yeah, I think I love you.

I like how amidst the chaos you give us two bits to work from so our imaginations can run riot....it's pretty darn crazy and eyeball explodingly frantic and that's why I like it.

Fairy in Fairyland---got completely obsessed over using the textures to do crazy,complicated effects and details;drove myself nuts.finished.sheeeesh.
phil 2009/11/22 - 16:25:43

phil 2009/11/22 - 16:28:56
had to comment again! this is my fave pic of all ur pics :)
dorothyblu 2009/11/23 - 16:47:0
thanks; those textures on shi painter pro are quite versatile,and can really be manipulated a lot.
shadrad 2009/11/24 - 17:27:0
I agree with Phil--this has got to be my favorite of yours so far. You always have such fascinating pictures, but in this one the colors and tones and everything came together for some serious eye candy. ;3
dorothyblu 2009/12/3 - 2:47:35
aww,thank you.:) Very nice of you.Yes,I find that people do not use these textures to their full advantage;I encourage everyone to do that;they can be fantastic,combinations,ect.
mika 2010/5/1 - 3:17:30
Ill leave the textures to you Dorothy you make them look so vibrant, I'm stuck on liking the black border because it frames the pic or you should have let us imagine she was looking at something off-screen by filling it in, still a great pic either way.

I absolutely love the colors and the flowing-ness of this picture. The textures are pretty sweet, and I'm a huge fan of the dodge brush. Really gorgeous work.

Best wishes on your birthday! Piece of universe for golden, inspired by [link]
And of course our common little interest, space :) My pics always seem to turn turquoise, whatever colour they start with x) Time strange, didn't dare to save pic to escrow but left it as it was. Anyway, have a wonderful birthday! :D
snoopywar 2009/1/25 - 8:31:31
The feeling of this is beautiful.
golden 2009/1/25 - 9:16:42
The most amazing thing with this picture (I decided after a while) is that it combines the feeling of being underwater with the feeling of being out in space. I'm just waiting for the day when you and the watercolor tool merge into one, or something. And yeah, it definitely goes together with the EVE song, which I'd been listening to for half of December.
Thank you so much for the beautiful picture! :D
blacklight 2009/1/26 - 20:28:44
whoaaa. I like how the picture faintly glows in places. and the expression that's really relaxed looking.
jakusama 2009/6/6 - 1:11:44
I love the color choice. Turquoise is a pretty color to always end up using. I love the feeling of it and the softness. The hair is killer, though. It's easily my favorite part. Love the subtle highlighting. Very pretty.
phil 2009/11/22 - 16:27:32
this is georgous.. amazing use if lighting

This is a gift for anyone who has ever brought food to their school, or treats for their classmates.
You are an inspiration to me.
kelli 2009/1/18 - 21:39:58
That juice looks delicious...both artistically and literally speaking. It's a tasty treat for my eyes, and if I could drink it, for my taste buds as well. =)
Also, the hair looks like a lot of fun.
jakusama 2009/6/6 - 1:12:28
I remember those days... I love the hair. The picture is artistically quite fabulous, and I love the message and intention behind it. Beautiful.

Looooooooooong overdue picture for Mika, inspired a bit by one of his older oekakis. Thanks for the amazing oekaki my friend. You rock! =D

p.s. please excuse any spots where the perspective went all wonky...I was just eyeballing some parts XD
mika 2009/1/17 - 12:51:55
I am humbled by dimensions three...
By the girl who inhabits a tree...
I oft drop by just in case a pic here will light my face...
And today 'tis specially true...
And for that Miss Kelli -I thank you.
kelli 2009/1/18 - 21:35:57
There once was a guy called Mika
I'm gonna assume that he likes to eat pizza
When he posts stuff we smile
And it lasts quite a while
For none of his work is tacky!

blacklight 2009/1/19 - 8:16:26
this is so cool.
it's like DEPTH! I really like how the letters look like they're going in and foward.
jakusama 2009/6/6 - 1:10:12
I can't decide which I'm more flabbergasted by; the awesome shading and 3-dimensional detail or the poetic banter! Fabulous job

Ok, this is the last time I save anything to escrow :( It magically overlaps two copies of the saved picture on top of each other, so I can't continue working.

Anyway, this is for elolinon. Sorry that it's only half-finished. Being horrible at remembering numbers, I can't recall the exact date of your birthday, only that it's at the end of December. If I'm completely wrong, this might be embarrassing, but yeah. Happy birthday!
gleeful1 2008/12/28 - 21:57:48
oh my goodness your picture is so enchanting!! i really like the darkened colors, but most of all, i love the positioning of everything. it makes me feel like she's being tumbled by the dragon underneath her *___*
elolinon 2009/1/5 - 15:21:42
MAN YOU'RE THE BEST ^^ Yeah, it's the end of December - and I thought you scrapped this because escrow messed it up; too good you didn't because it wonderful as it is ! :) Hahah looks like me ^^ The dragon is gorgerous, it's hard to make them look both friendly and threatening at the same time! Happy new year and soon-to-be-your-birthday! :D
jakusama 2009/1/6 - 17:48:51
Personally, I'm a pretty big fan of how it is right now. I love the colors, and the expression on both of them is fabulous. The lineart is exquisite, as always, and I'm totally digging the hair, and I'm envious of the ease at which you draw her in that position. Lovely job, and happy belated birthday!
mika 2009/1/16 - 13:43:25
Both Escrow and saving to board have major probs as of late, bit you managed to save does look bloody good though.

The Alien within.

For Jakusama.

jakusama 2008/11/30 - 0:38:41
Awwww! Thank you, thank you! It's beautiful, and again, I love the eyes. And the lips. The hair is so neat, and the proportion of the face, the largeness of the eyes... it's just really cool. I love it. Thank you. <3 (And I really, really love the lips and eyes. ...Alot.)
kelli 2008/12/2 - 19:4:25
those eyes are so haunting, it's really creepy...it's like they're staring right at you 0_0

Once again, I applaud your oekaki executing abilities. I'm really loving your sort of surreal portraits that you've been doing lately. Keep up the awesome work =D
gleeful1 2008/12/20 - 2:49:25
seriously, she is quite attractive. i love her eyes and i am a sucker for shading underneath the eye. haha i'm not a lesbian. XD
DUDE mika get on dA. stop going into hibernation. upload your artwork! nooooww!!!! aiyaaaa
mika 2008/12/22 - 22:10:28
A DA return is planned new year-ish........;)
elolinon 2009/1/5 - 15:25:22
Wow, this sure looks great in greyscale! :) The area just below her nose is real, i swear. And those lips o.O
jakusama 2009/1/6 - 17:49:31
I STILL love this. <3 <3
jakusama 2009/6/6 - 1:13:46
I still love it. <3

Lil' prezzy for Jakusama -not finished yet.
(Having to save to board as Escrow likes deleting layers/pics lately)

Wot! another NA?
mika 2008/10/25 - 7:40:4
Lost the pic, it's merging all the layers and deleting several......
Sorry Jaku, will make it up to you.......next pic I do is yours.

Any mods around can delete this.
mika 2008/10/25 - 7:42:50
If you watch the anim that's what I'm getting to carry on with........wtf!
russianruler 2008/10/25 - 18:56:36
oh woaw
jakusama 2008/10/30 - 23:19:19
Awww! I wish my 'lost pictures' looked like this! Haha, you're too sweet, Mika. <3 The eyes are incredible. I love them. A lot. And the background is like... whoa trippy. I'm staring at it trying to figure out how you did it. Did you hand-draw every line? You never cease to amaze me. Seriously. <3 And I'm so touched! <3 <3 <3
mika 2008/10/31 - 9:28:47
Curve tool for the lines, the idea behind the pic would have been to merge the face into the lines with half breaking up showing the skeleton below it (think jigsaw puzzle breaking up) alas it was not to be.......but yes I will make it up to you...:)
jakusama 2008/10/31 - 10:16:4
That's still... extraordinarily cool. <3 Thank you.

For theopteryx, based off a brilliant AU she created.
jakusama 2008/10/18 - 11:30:15
Haha! How cool! (I wish I got oekakies for my AUs.) The shading in this is pretty neat - the sort of watercolor-ness coupled with lineart adds for a really interested - and cool - impression. The play with lighting is perfect, just the right highlights in just the right places. Nice work!
elolinon 2008/10/23 - 13:47:50
There's something about the colours in this one; I love the area on his right all, where it's all blue and purple and shadowy! Perfect use of light and shadow, it looks very dramatic!
mika 2008/10/25 - 1:32:16
The feathers, nekkidness and position of 2nd person raise many questions......lol.
Cool pic though, lineart meets watercolour....good combo.
