Long time no oekakeing. ( I just invented a new verb x) Just messing around in shi painter, watercolor-tool as always, my beloved friend :)
jakusama 2009/1/7 - 11:38:26
Ooooo *pets the hair* I like it. Your use of the watercolor tool with shading is ridiculously amazing. I love even your doodles! <3 Love the eye, too. And the lips. The nose is pretty awesome, too. I think that's about everything, actually.
blacklight 2009/1/19 - 8:17:18
ooh I like the hair too. It looks so soft and light.
chrislagace 2009/1/20 - 15:51:54

oops i forgot to finish the texturing on the right edge of the picture. ><
i was going to shade it, so i went on google to look up diagrams of the back muscles, but i got lazy ^^''''''
what is the girl doing?? is she brushing her teeth??? or is she saying, "OH NO. MY MOUTH IS BLEEDING!!!" (<----<< this is what i had in my head, but for some mysterious reason, i did not draw the blood)
elolinon 2009/1/7 - 9:25:36
I'm in love with the colours :)
jakusama 2009/1/7 - 11:39:36
Hahaha. It's such a bright piece - and I totally had an OH NO MY MOUTH IS BLEEDING moment this weekend. Several, actually. After having wisdom teeth pulled... >.> So yay for bleeding mouths! I empathize! Poor girl. Love the sketchy hair - it's really pretty cool.

Hrm. Long time, no 'kaki. Or as the Chinese say, "hao jiu, bu 'kaki". Ahuh. Well, sort of experimenting with posture. I'm gonna work on it some more.
jakusama 2009/1/7 - 11:40:17
Whoa. That's... really neat. I hope you do a more finished one like this, I'd love to see it after everything's said and done. Very cool!

eh, I felt like drawing but had no ideas, so just ended up seeing what came out... I didn't have time to colour nicely so just left my scribble layer colours on to brighten it up :/
jakusama 2009/1/7 - 11:41:19
I kind of like the artistic look the scribble layer gives it. Actually. Heh. It's kinda trippy. Love the colors from it, too.

Haven't been here in a while.
But at least you all know I'll always come back. Hahaha.

It's been snowing here lately.
jakusama 2009/1/7 - 11:42:18
Yay! I'm glad you'll always come back. <3 I'm so tired of cold... I want it to be warm. But, despite the snow, your picture has a very warm-like quality to it. I wish I felt that way when I was out in the snow. Love the little flakes and the choices of color. Very pretty.

<3 mountains and auroras.
snoopywar 2008/12/17 - 18:48:18
This is very pleasant. (:
jakusama 2008/12/18 - 14:28:2
Love the colors! I'm a sucker for ethereal looking pictures, and I love the auroas and the colors of the snow. Absolutely gorgeous. And the milky way. It's really pretty.

Experiment with "shoujo" style.
Supposed to be a Russian female mechanic swaying back from a punch, but I have NO idea how to show motion apparently. Nor how to depict females Xp.

In retrospect, shouldn't have gone so heavy on the shadows around the eye - looks like makeup, which was unintentional.
jakusama 2008/12/18 - 14:29:27
I love how comfortable you are with bodies that you can experiment with this sort of style. I definitely see the motion - I don't know whether it's as you liked it or not, but I definitely get a sense of motion from it. I think it was a very good try at it - a success, in my opinion. :p

Haven't posted here ages !
Um, don't take this picture too seriously ;
It's just a doodle:)

He was supposed to be a man, but i accidentally gave him itty-bitty breasts:(

c&c is adored, as always !
jakusama 2008/12/18 - 14:30:29
Heh I like the sunlight. I feel like that sometimes when I wake up. Although, im a girl, and I still have itty bitty breasts. Sooooo yeah I feel like that sometimes. xD I like the softness of the picture. It's so warm and cheery...

Mini-doodle. Kinda going for the grizzled look, though the hair TOTALLY doesn't match ;).
jakusama 2008/12/18 - 14:30:52
Still freaking awesome. But you already knew that. :D

Just playing around with this one.
jakusama 2008/11/30 - 0:39:18
Keep playing! Love the colors and sketchiness. I want to see more!
kelli 2008/12/2 - 19:7:41
I agree! I'm really loving what you're doing with the flames. Those colors are eye candy. =)

jakusama 2008/11/28 - 13:4:10
I can completely understand that. Good to see you popping around, though. I love your style, it's so unique. And the choice of shading colors is really addicting. Love.

Woot! a test room tutorial! (after several years)

1/ Define shape with Pen tool on around 33-50% opacity, doesn't have to be accurate.
2/ Define shape some more with Pen tool on around 10-20% opacity (set to 0 pixels)
3/ Start to define mass, I use a seperate layer and the pen tool set to around 33% (size dependent on area I want to cover) - Layer can be darkened or lightened using the opacity slider, when happy merge the two layers.......I can do this over and over depending on what I want to achieve, here it was once.
4/ On a seperate (preferably behind) layer add in a full block of standard grey and use Airbrush tool set at 5% to lighten the hi-lights, or use Soft Eraser set to around 10%.
5/ On a seprate layer (above) use the Airbrush at 5% to lighten and add some texture then use the Soft erase at 5-10% to delete the areas above the dark areas you wish to keep.

The eye on the right isn't finished as I was running out of time.
Use layers to control depth (opacity slider) and add texture.....add many and only merge when you are happy, kill hard edges with Soft tool but beware the glitches it throws up (add layer, Merge current layer with it and delete the empty layer to stop the glitches)

mika 2008/11/25 - 1:1:32
.........and as usual the anim is a waste of time.......:(
mika 2008/11/25 - 1:3:12
Pah........and its the eye on the left that isn't finished.....lol
baeduxai 2008/11/26 - 11:29:34
lol this is awesome :D.
jakusama 2008/11/26 - 21:36:17
Holy crap. I think I'm in love.

Absolutely beautiful.

Thank you. (I can try and make beautiful eyes now, too!)
kelli 2008/12/2 - 19:11:18
whoo! Now I don't have to crack your head open and steal your artistic secrets...what a relief, brains can be so messy ^_^

In all seriousness though, on behalf of everyone at TACo, I thank you for sharing your bits of wisdom
senobdec 2008/12/13 - 0:18:11
Very cool tutorial. I like the definition around the eye on the right.
I'll eventually get around to using layers, probably.
elolinon 2009/1/7 - 9:28:5
Nice idea, technique and picture :) I like how it's all sketchy in the beginning.

Dreams die in this broken family forever hidden behind the distorted reality.
jakusama 2008/11/21 - 19:12:23
Mikaaaaaa. Incredible, as usual. Even in the Test Room. Er, Sketch Corner. (Wow, haven't used that name in a while.) Sometime, you should do a tutorial on eyes. I love the way you do them. (unless you have already?) Really cool. Soft shading really lends to it.

Sunset ^^
mika 2008/11/10 - 15:53:52
Now that's a sunset I'd like to see.
jakusama 2008/11/21 - 19:13:5
Ooo! Pretty! I'm staring at it, waiting for the fabled green light to appear. Like, the sunset is so magical, it looks like green light should leap out at any second.
