He looks so frigging pissed.
Unfinished, but I might touch it up in Photoshop.
I really need to work on shading metal.
Done with my eternally crappy track/ball mouse.
maemay 2008/3/30 - 10:22:5
that's pretty dang amazing for a crappy ball tracked mouse. I love the colours and the shading.
gleeful1 2008/3/30 - 15:54:17
wow u pulled this off very well! mann i don't think i could color metal this good anny day! XD
jakusama 2008/4/1 - 17:22:33
Oooo shiney! I like the colors, and you did the metal exceptionally well. I like the idea, too. S'very interesting. :)
lorelai 2008/4/23 - 14:9:41

Hah, I need to draw here more often.
It's a mermaid. :]
C&C is loved. :]
[And I worked on this for like 3 hours. Not 9, haha.]
maemay 2008/3/29 - 8:10:38
hey i think i know you from another oekaki sight. Your pretty good.
gleeful1 2008/3/30 - 15:54:48
wow her hair... it really looks like she it underwater!
diezombiedie 2008/3/30 - 15:59:57
(the MOB perhaps?)
jakusama 2008/4/1 - 17:23:39
I like the underwater feel to it. I am quite impressed by how you did the skintones under water. You kept the skin tones similar to each other, but with blue tints. Very neat. And I wish my hair was like that. (I want purple eyes!)
lorelai 2008/4/23 - 14:10:27
<3 <3 <3 water + girls = WINNER!!!

What can I say? I got bored.
I think I might make a series of these, if theres enough interest. It's been a few years since I've properly flexed my satirical anime muscles. I just love making fun of this stuff.
Also, in case anyone was wondering what the hell is up with that girl/boy's make-up: SOME JAPANESE CHICKS ACTUALLY DO THAT TO THEMSELVES I'M NOT EVEN KIDDING.
Done with my eternally crappy track/ball mouse.
jakusama 2008/4/1 - 17:25:34
Do you really have 271 other reasons? I really like anime, so I don't think I quite understand. And what makeup are you talking about? It's an interesting series, anyway, but as you can tell a lot of talented artists perfer the anime-type style, so just be aware that if youre too... um... maybe insensitive, you might offend people. You're certainly entitled to your opinion, and the art seems interesting. I'm just not sure that I quite understand the message. :) (Of course anime doesn't work in real life, silly. That's why it's a cartoon. :) )

just a little drawing of what i'd like to be doing instead of being at school.
maemay 2008/3/22 - 7:9:14
I'm gonig to guess your in college. i love the shinyness to it.
jakusama 2008/3/23 - 20:30:4
Oh man. I had Break this past week, and I totally did lots of *that.* It was amazing, but I am SO not ready to head back tomorrow. Don't make me go! I love the sunniness of it. It's awesome.
gleeful1 2008/3/30 - 15:55:49
gasp is she smoking?? haha i love the cool feel to this!
lorelai 2008/4/23 - 14:13:13

I live on the easternmost peninsula of the easternmost province of Canada. It's a rocky little island that gets some pretty intense weather, and it's at around this time of year, when spring should REALLY be trying to show up by now, that winter shows us her psycho side and does a little something like this. :p
bananarana 2008/3/19 - 21:5:22
LOL! oh my gosh, that's so hilarious, I can't stop laughing hahahaa!
maemay 2008/3/20 - 7:28:43
I love it , dpecially the colours. Your style kind of reminds me of blackcataurore.
astronautical 2008/3/20 - 17:10:45
This is fantastic! It's nice to know there's another Newfie on this board.
The only critique I can think to give is that her eyes are a little too far apart, and that the proportions of her leg giving the bootstomp are slightly unequal to her other leg.
Otherwise, this is a masterful piece of oekaki.
jakusama 2008/3/23 - 20:4:55
Hahaha. I love this! (I love all your stuff.) THe shading rocks, and the mood of it just makes me laugh. (I like the canines, too.) It sort of reminds me of a female Hatsuharu from Fruits Basket when he's in his psycho Black form.
gleeful1 2008/3/30 - 15:57:4
winter... really is crAAAzy! your shading is smooth as alwaysss *____*
lorelai 2008/4/23 - 14:13:46
you are so freaking fantastic tayley-chan XD

Well its a girl in the moonlight with almost no colors! I hate the backround but im really bad at them so i guess it couldn't be helped! Se yah...! O.o - ARRHG
kira 2008/3/17 - 16:10:57
dont forget about ur layers option.. it will take off the pressure of backgrounds alot.. keep drawing and playing with the tools offered! youll see your skills just get better..:)
jakusama 2008/3/23 - 20:6:31
Yeah, I second the layers thought. They're AMAZING. You can do a sketchy layer, and then a trace layer, and then a color layer,and make any of them go away at any time. She's really cute though, keep practicing! :) I see lots of talent!

Yay. Orbs of light. I did something similar to this the other day but the orbs were blue. HmmmMmm.
jakusama 2008/3/23 - 20:7:29
Oh purrdy! It's good to see you seem to be hanging around this time. I like your work. I like the orange too, and I want one of those. *points to the lovely piece of flesh* I like the shiny things.
gleeful1 2008/3/30 - 15:57:34
he looks... so sad =( makes me want to pat him on his back =)
purrdy 2008/3/30 - 18:17:6
Meh.. he'll be alright. He's just having a moment. =P

Green eyed girl...! :P
astronautical 2008/3/16 - 16:32:56
As much as I try to respect every style of drawing, including anime, this is a little too...awkward for me to let go without giving a little constructive criticism.
Firstly, I suggest making the eyes a little less rectangular next time you draw them, because human eyes are usually more rounded, even when drawing in an anime style.
Other than that, I just think you need a lot of practice.
The potential is definitely there, but I don't think this picture shows it as well as it could.
ellinora2 2008/3/17 - 10:34:0
thank you but this wasent ment to be very serius its absolutely not my real drawing style! Pardon my bad spelling! O.o
jakusama 2008/3/23 - 20:9:30
I think she's cute! And since you didn't specifically ask for criticism, I can't really give any. But because it's just a fun piece, there isn't really much to crit, you know? I actually like the eyes. I think they're adorable. I like the green. It's pretty spiffy.

astronautical 2008/3/16 - 16:23:46
I really love the concept, but I think you need to work on your human (or rather, mermaid) anatomy. The hands and arms, for starters, are a little out of whack (a bit too masculine for a creature known to be feminine), and the folds of skin around her abdomen and breasts are a little...awkward. Also, her head is a tad small.
But otherwise, it's a decent drawing.
larstar 2008/3/17 - 12:41:27
I like the tail bit at the bottom :)... I think I recognise your style from another oekaki board...
jakusama 2008/3/23 - 20:14:45
astronautical, please remember that unless crits are asked for, it's really rather rude to give them. Try and give only compliments unless the artist asks for crits, too. :) Those things you said, too, could be the style. That being said, eyes are always my favorite part of a picture. I think they deliver all the emotion of the picture in one dramatic blow. And I really like these eyes. They're pretty neat. Keep practicing, can't wait to see more!
gleeful1 2008/3/30 - 15:59:24
haha boobs! her expression really draws u in.. she's a mermaid with attitude! =)

gotta get the itch to draw out.. not tattooing anymore ..:(
purrdy 2008/3/16 - 16:56:40
Wow. Love those colors. The background makes her green eyes pop! This is beautiful.
jakusama 2008/3/23 - 20:15:34
Eyes are crazy cool. Love them! And the colors are just awesome, and you can make blue skin a new fashion statement!

Due to an intense boredom that existed within me at such a level previously thought impossible by the scientific world, I got the irrepressible urge to draw Bowser as a human.
It turned out pretty well, but I let a few things out accidentally, but dat okay.
(lulz he looks like my ex-boyfriend)
Drawn with my eternally crappy track/ball mouse.
NAO IS THE TIEM FOR POPSICLES. *toddles off*
kira 2008/3/15 - 10:44:12
great idea.. i think the outline is hilarious.! i +fav it!
bananarana 2008/3/16 - 12:52:34
I can totally see it. This is so awesome.
jakusama 2008/3/23 - 20:17:41
Ha! I saw this before I read your description and I'm thinking "I know this guy..." and yeah, it totally fits! I like the scratchy outline on this (which is unusual; I'm a fan of smoothness mostly) because it really adds to the style. I dig it, I dig it. Turned out nicely, good job! (And I like the outline in the background and the crown on the shirt.)

Long time no see, Rydia. I've been on a hiatus of sorts for the past month. A lot of stuff has happened, and oekaki has shifted down my list of priorities because of it.
But I'm back, bringing you that same ol' same ol'.
As always, this was done with my eternally shitty track/ball mouse.
(Someone buy me a tablet plz. I can feel my mind going.)
blacklight 2008/3/9 - 9:21:30
I like the expression, and the little sparkle on the bling.
bananarana 2008/3/10 - 15:7:36
Come back from your hiatus, because I absolutely love this picture, and want to see more from you.
jakusama 2008/3/23 - 20:19:38
This is really neat for a trackball. Trackballs aren't so bad. A bit sticky maybe, but I've done my share with them. You could always upgrade to a laser mouse. Those aren't too expensive anymore, and they make it SO much easier. Tablets don't really make it easier... they make it faster, you know? But I dig the style. Good to see you!

Failed attempt to draw water and sky... T.T Can somebody pls tell me how to do it??
blumeaniandglove 2008/3/3 - 21:35:57
and looking at reference pictures to see how/what/etc.
lorelai 2008/3/3 - 23:41:25
you did a darn good job already, to be honest! and the trails of white make it look like steam, as if it's a hot spring :) it's really practice, there are no tricks. :) keep at it!
i love the hair too!
evi19koko 2008/3/7 - 4:34:31
thank you :) i will try to practice more and more :> and yes, i tried to make it a hot spring :) i'm happy that it can be recognized :)
bananarana 2008/3/10 - 14:56:57
Oh, what I would do right now to soak in a hot spring like this one...
Firstly, I love that the entire picture is so foggy. It certainly helps the girl look like she's in a hot hot place. : )
Like everyone has been saying, making good water and sky involves practice! I have one request for you: the next time you draw a picture on oekaki, make it bigger! The canvas you used for this picture is kinda tiny, and my eyes aren't as young as they used to be! With a larger canvas comes the ability to draw more detail, to experiment freely with brushstrokes--basically, you have more room to work with and experiment with! And it doesn't have to be a canvas that's like 100000000x1000000000. Just a simple 300x300 would be large enough.
Keep oekaki'ing, and keep practicing! I already love how much potential I can see in this picture, from the water droplets in the hair and back, to the hot steams from the water, and even the reflection of the stones and clouds in the water's surface. You have a good eye for detail!
jakusama 2008/3/23 - 20:24:8
Ooo! cozy! I like it. I really don't have anything to add that hasn't been said already, you could try copying pictures directly, or you could just use them to see what the sky-water reflection deal should look like. I do like the steamy, and I wanna go to deserted hotsprings!!

i had this username crys a while ago, but i couldnt remember my password and such, so i made another.. not finished. too tired. lol c&c is cool
sankyu 2008/2/29 - 12:36:50
Wow thats really quite cool. You seem to shade quite like I do.
bananarana 2008/3/10 - 15:1:18
Oh, is this complete? I would have loved to see what this would have looked like had you finished it. That being, your shading is very nice. I'm not exactly sure what I'm looking at (a butterfly? XD), but whatever it is, you colored it nicely! The flowers are cute, too, and the colors are so happy and bright, it makes me smile.
The only crit(s) I have is this: I wish you had finished the picture! And, the light source for this picture is a little undefined to me. It seems like it's coming right from the front (meaning, from us, the viewers). Maybe some brighter highlighting would help me see where this light source is, as well as help lighten the picture just that little bit more. : )
jakusama 2008/3/23 - 20:25:9
Awww... I love the flowers! The colors are so bright and cheerful. I love them. Finish it next time! :p

what a beautiful face in profile!!!! and i love the whole thing in general! <3
jakusama 2008/3/23 - 20:26:2
Wow. The lips caught my attention; I love them. The eye is gorgeous too. I like this. And the background is surprisingly awesome. Normally I'm not a big fan of the sort of random texture-y patterns like that, but you stole my heart with this one!
gleeful1 2008/3/30 - 16:0:17
the POSE is so natural!! i'm jealous!! O_O
