I love how you shade.
mika-kun 2006/6/7 - 10:36:11
Very monochromatic.....and very cool, a very good example of using colour to express feeling...;)
mogily 2006/6/9 - 18:20:53
Oo, I like this a lot. It's very dark and monochromatic, but her face really brings it to life with her expression. Nice~

Happy trees^_^
isoueax 2006/5/23 - 16:57:24
Aww..they're so cute! I love this.

You can sense the trees' feelings..sort of. :B

Still, I love the vine-like textures, and the elegant, up-reaching limbs.

Wonderful job.
senobdec 2006/5/23 - 18:39:41
Wow... very cool.
phil 2006/5/25 - 12:50:4

snoopywar 2006/5/28 - 15:38:4

I wish I lived with them.
lorelai 2006/6/6 - 9:41:10

twinkledraak 2006/6/15 - 3:54:55
I love it :D!!!
gleeful1 2006/6/26 - 22:55:50
they look lighted up from the inside.. an inner glow from happiness ^^'''' the animation was so fun to watch! all of a sudden, u added touches of light green to the green mass in the top and boom u have great looking leaves! it is the same with the floor *_*
elusive_dreamer 2006/8/24 - 1:21:51
Made me think of the first book (?) of the Narnia series, and there'd be a puddle somewhere to fall into another world in. Interesting trees, I love their texture and standoutishness.

snoopywar 2006/5/22 - 18:0:22
Aaah! The clouds are awesome! xP
I like that umbrella too.
isoueax 2006/5/22 - 20:22:59
She reminds me of the illustrations from a children's book -- I love that! I love the shades of green used here, and that her umbrella somewhat matches her dress.

Wonderfully unique style, keep it up!
mitsu 2006/5/22 - 20:32:53
Magnifique! This really hits the spot. Awesome colors, sweet textures, and a generous helping of totally rad. 8]
artistmonkey 2006/5/23 - 10:24:9
rain! i love the rainnn.

this is really cool. i loooove the clouds and the awesome use of textures. :D your art is amazing.
blumeaniandglove 2006/5/23 - 22:5:56

it looks like you used oil pastels.
phil 2006/5/25 - 12:51:55
i just love how her dress melts into the ground and how the grass looks like that false green stuff in a butchers shop! i shall name her curly sue yes i shall very good little kaki <3
xdarkx 2006/5/25 - 23:47:19
lovely rain indeed.

mika-kun 2006/6/7 - 10:46:35
Oh yes, this is great, I love that style...:)
mogily 2006/6/9 - 18:22:29

starrbroken 2006/5/22 - 12:19:3
worked on this little bits at a time. i am very very very happy with how it came out. tried to improve on shading/lighting. i seem also to have a tendency to draw people leaning towards one way or another. as always, crits on anatomy/clothes/shading would be very appreciated, as i'm always trying to improve. :>
kira 2006/5/22 - 13:23:53
i love her expression. and how the lip is kinda arhced. i think i like the thicker outline better than the thin one used in this one. it almost makes the details on the skin and clothes dissappear. i also love the way u positioned the bg and the whole bg itself!...

snoopywar 2006/5/22 - 17:59:59
I rather like the shading here. :)
Nicely done.
tayley-chan 2006/5/23 - 4:58:50
I love love love the colors in her hair and top. That pink keeps grabbing my eyes. the design is also really neat ^_^

And, of course, love for th BG too <3
blumeaniandglove 2006/5/23 - 22:6:25
cute :)
i give it nine plus
mogily 2006/6/9 - 18:23:44

blumeaniandglove 2006/5/23 - 22:6:58

mitsu 2006/5/26 - 17:39:39
Oooh icy cool! Great use of an almost monochromatic color scheme. :)
mogily 2006/6/9 - 18:24:24

My first attempt at an oekaki. Not the best thing i've done, but I'm not very used to the program yet. Although, the hair turned out to be a pleasant surprise. So, for 2 of the 3 hours I worked, I mostly goofed off with the program and accidently screwed up my drawing several times in the process. I could've done more but honestly, I'm WAY too lazy to finish this off completely.
isoueax 2006/5/22 - 20:24:8
Dx I can't see it! That upsets me, because such modesty in the original comment usually means that it's beautiful.

I wait!

snoopywar 2006/5/21 - 18:14:6
Her skin and eyes are gorgeous! :)
mitsu 2006/5/22 - 12:41:12
Ditto to snoopywar's comment. Poor girl... beautiful eyes but no body. ;p
mogily 2006/6/9 - 18:25:30
wonderful blending, and such georgeous, haunting eyes. very pretty~

My hand hurts, I did this in one sitting. It's 5 AM now D:
that's the original that I did in a paintchat.
This one started off being Mitsu inspired, but kinda went in a different direction.
C&C plz.
mitsu 2006/5/20 - 7:55:34
!!! WOW! Def' my all-time favorite from you. I'm getting lost in all those swirls. STUNNING use of line, just incredible stuff... :O~~~~ I could see this as a huge print, mmhmm. Cool to the max. 83
blumeaniandglove 2006/5/20 - 15:40:51


snoopywar 2006/5/20 - 20:38:59
The swirls = Beautiful
The choice in color too is very soft and elegant. :3
ryoanna 2006/5/20 - 21:7:19
very nice.. great job:)
lorelai 2006/5/20 - 22:21:37
Totally love it <3
p_b 2006/5/21 - 10:24:37
wow this rocks so hard O_O
phil 2006/5/22 - 14:38:25
oh ah my eyes are happy wiv this the swirls! i can feel how much your hand must have ached after this pic but it was worth it to make my eyes bleed wiv envy of your swirly skills and such a intresting body shape 2 x
spoonalshmee 2006/5/22 - 15:27:14
weee! i love this! it is gorgeous, particularly the shadows on the legs, there. beautiful!
isoueax 2006/5/22 - 20:20:23
The detailed shading cast by the strands of hair is absolutely stunning. The colors used in this picture make me feel nostalgic and happy, like I'm enjoying a banana split at the local diner, whereas the beautiful young woman brings me back into a world of strange reality.

I can't see anything wrong with this oekaki. Stunning work yet again.
lavalizard 2006/5/22 - 23:16:52
It's mesmerizing@_@
So pretty and fascinating how the hair and background swirl together. I love that the hair casts it's shadow on her. :-)
senobdec 2006/6/4 - 18:37:6
Whoa... I didn't comment on this?! Just bleedingly amazing....
gleeful1 2006/6/26 - 22:59:18

dorothyblueeyes 2006/7/18 - 21:44:5
I have SO much to learn. sigh.

Um, yeah, I haven't been hanging around much lately (AGAIN), but thats because I've been having problems drawing on the comp lately...XD

So, this is a picture of me with some of my characters: Ping the Panda, two Fuzzballs of Doom, and the "I <3" girl.

Crits would be brilliant! In fact: how the heckaroo do you color fur?! As you can see with the green fuzzball, my fur skills leave much to be desired. Anatomy help (legs!) would be nice too. But be gentle, I haven't drawn here in a while...XD

I hope this is good enough for polished...
ryoanna 2006/5/19 - 20:37:53
very cool.. awesome job ^^
lavalizard 2006/5/22 - 1:29:15
Fun characters:-)
My fur coloring leaves much to be desired too, so not much advice there...
The best way to learn bodies is to pose infront of a mirror and draw yourself as best you can. If you're obsessive like me, you can even flex your muscles to see how they fit together, but that's very tiring^_^;.
On legs in particular, focus on the knee cap, calf muscles, and those bony bumps on the sides of the ankle. Those are the hardest parts to draw but they're also the parts that turn a bent noodle into real living leg:)
donteatyellowsnow 2006/5/26 - 17:14:43
how did u do all that with a MOUSE girl?! u amaze me
mogily 2006/6/9 - 18:26:42
