Different tools then normally. I often use the watercolors in my pictures. I,m happy with it. I really need to practic more. Ah wel i like it ;)!

astronautical 2008/1/28 - 18:10:51
I very much love the glowyness of her hair!
I think the only things that bother me is how prominent her tear ducts seem to be, and the flat look her lips have to them.
Other than that, you did a decent job. Commends for branching out from your normal range of tools! :3
lolikhan 2008/1/31 - 9:15:4
Though the roses are a tad blurry, the one furthest on the left is AMAZING. They all are, but that one stands out.

Well done!
lorelai 2008/2/4 - 14:48:39
I don't know why, but I think i love how you stuck with white eyebrows and lips to go with the white hair. It makes more real-life sense that way, doesn't it? (well at least the eyebrows do.) Too many animes make snow-white haired characters with dark eyebrows. I know Sam Waterson and Sean Connery have them too but it just looks so fake. /ramble

A self-portrait.

If I had clothes that awesome and calves that small. <3

My room's carpet really is that color, though.
twinkledraak 2008/1/28 - 15:28:36
Hihi funny :)! I love the colors :)! I have a pair socks like those :3!
lorelai 2008/2/4 - 14:47:26
*laugh* i love this. I love the clothes, and how you concentrated on everything but the face/bust/usual portrait stuff!

This drawing was inspired by the movie "Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow". For some reason, I can't stop saying the name of that movie in a weird old radio voice. It's just so fun.

ANYWAYS, this guy is a pilot (haha, obviously), but not the one played by Jude Law, because he's outside my skill range due to him being too pretty. ; 3;
I like how this came out, though, especially his mouth. Usually, I'm useless when it comes to smiling and such, but this one wasn't a huge failure, so go me.

I may color this some time soon, in Photoshop. So whoever is interested in seeing that (eventually), check my DeviantArt (link in my profile).

Drawn with my eternally crappy track/ball mouse.
blumeaniandglove 2008/1/27 - 22:26:52
tres bien!

I love jude law.
but i couldn't watch that movie. it was so ARRRRRGH for me.
twinkledraak 2008/1/28 - 15:29:38
cool :)! I love pilots and airplaines :).
tayley-chan 2008/1/30 - 16:1:48
this is already pretty dern awesome, but I think coloring it would make it endlessly spiffy ^_^ If you haven't done so yet you totally should.
astronautical 2008/1/30 - 17:14:43
Thanks, guys!
And actually, tayley-chan, I have the colored version up on my DeviantArt. Check it out if you like. :3

When i open my eyes,
I'm hoping to find it,
I mean the other half,
of the heart in me,

Sometimes i wonder,
if it's closer,
so if i open my eyes.
I now know,
Ill see,



For a friend, :) I know it'll make him happy, ^_^

Ok, well, this was kinda quick. But I hope it's not undertimed :(.

well. comments appreciated. :)
jakusama 2008/1/25 - 19:18:35
Awwww! It's adorable! I want to give it a hug!
twinkledraak 2008/1/28 - 15:29:53

Im in love with the no black outline. :) Thanks yoous inspiration... I think it was here in the gift room or something where i got inspiration. Not sure though. Ah well. inspiration thanks youu. I love my style now. (and guess what? My heads aren't big anymore)

Cal it "Waitresses of My world"

Ussually revealing clothes. But man, I love cute clothes. :)

Made this for my friend rei too..

happiness is contagious in a wonderful way. And so, you draw pictures. Pictures that make peoeple smile are better.

Thus the previous two pictures which are bright colours.


wonderfulll eh? Im kinda proud of it. Even tho it took less time than the previous one. ^_^;;

oh well..

C&C please

lorelai 2008/1/20 - 19:33:25
really cute! only 1 critique pointer jumps out at me...background is a little distracting, I think it's because the color palette is so close to the foreground, and the somewhat excessive use of patterns. :)
baeduxai 2008/1/20 - 19:36:53
thx maybe i should fade it and simplify it.

cloud 2008/1/22 - 9:45:53
Bright and happy ^_^ yeah, i agree with Lorelei on the background part, but other than that it's kawaii!
astronautical 2008/1/22 - 13:19:11
This is lovely! The only thing that bothers me, though, is how her eyes seem to be going in two separate directions. It kind of looks like she's about to shoop-da-woop a lazer up in there.
Other than that, it's cute, I like the pastel colors. :D
jakusama 2008/1/25 - 19:17:54
I really like your color choices. Your style is addicting. They're so soft, and cute, but I'd have to agree. The foreground is so close in style and type to the background, they're a little hard to tell apart. Not necessarily fading it, even just removing the details, or making them a different color. Overall, she's really cute.
twinkledraak 2008/1/28 - 15:31:19
cute girly XD!

Experimenting with lighting and such.
I haven't oekakied in ever o_o;.. how is everyone? :D
baeduxai 2008/1/19 - 16:27:29
really like this :) she looks very mellow and dazed. I like the shiny arms XD. The white makes them look shiny. (pokes)

really good work :)
lorelai 2008/1/20 - 19:33:50
hello naty!!!

I AM GOOD...but busy. Which is more than obvious considering i'm a ghost around here ;_;
purrdy 2008/1/21 - 3:49:57
Everyone's a ghost around here lately. I still pop on like once a day and lurk. (Muwahahaha!) >.>

Anyways... Pretty picture. =3 Boobies! *squeeze*
jakusama 2008/1/25 - 19:15:3
Wow. I like the darkness. The lighting is really cool. Like, really. I think you did a fabulous job, and her green eyes just pop against the background. (pop in a good way. They jump out and attack me.) Gorgeous.
twinkledraak 2008/1/28 - 15:33:34
Nice how you used the shadows and lighting in this picture.

Love you as much as I love carrots!

Listening to SUPER MUSIC MAKER by Ami Suzuki right now! Kidna old but i love it :)

Ok, back to the bunny named Natsumi with a dementedly drawn carrot in her hand. I ¢¾ how this turned out like seriously WOWWW.

I feel like i've improved. I really like it. Yeah I know the lighting is messed up but stalkers will admit that I've drawn better than last year... like WAAAAYYYY better.

(ish very proud)

¢Ühey you yeahhh SUPER MUSIC MAKERRR¢Ü

Anyways, yayyy for no black outline >]

She was gonna be wearign an apron... but i thought it would be too much white on her. So i skewed up her original costume. I'm making a manga for school and she's one of my characters. The plot was gonna be epic but i had to use a different plot cause it's due... March... ^_^;; wish me luck?

-- Chiika☺
naty 2008/1/19 - 16:8:57
Awww, she's so cute x3!
I love how you used the different tones and colors ^^
baeduxai 2008/1/19 - 16:27:52
lol thanks :)
lorelai 2008/1/20 - 19:34:31
she looks so HAPPY XD
jakusama 2008/1/25 - 19:14:9
Oh man. I want those ears!! I like the hair. It's pretty cool.
twinkledraak 2008/1/28 - 15:34:13
so cute XD! I love bunnies :D!

This is the candle I was playing with last night, on my kitchen table. It smelled and looked lovely, and as the wax was being burnt down by the flame, I pushed the walls of the candle out, to look like the petals of a flower.
It looked somewhat like what you see here.

Done with my eternally crappy track/ball mouse.
baeduxai 2008/1/19 - 9:31:46
your mouse may be crappy but the picture definitly is NOT. I love it :) kinda of suck at candles and lighting so congrats.
naty 2008/1/19 - 16:13:8
I agree, that's a highly realistic candle o.o.. how'd you do the glow? airbrush? x3
astronautical 2008/1/20 - 7:9:59
Yeah, airbrush. I hate using that tool, but it is apt for some situations.
And thanks. :3
lorelai 2008/1/20 - 19:34:16
i am BOGGLED at how people draw with a trackball. I have a trackball. I do not make drawings with said trackball. @_@
jakusama 2008/1/25 - 19:13:37
::low whistle:: trackball? Impressive. Even with a tablet pen, this is lovely. The lighting is fabulous, and I like the dripping of the wax. The flame is pretty cool. Er, hot. :)
twinkledraak 2008/1/28 - 15:36:11
o.O wowie you're good with a mouse. It looks so damn real. *thumbs up*

this is suppose to be a wind spirit but now that i look at it, it could be an earth spirit too. whichever one fits the most is it i guess :)
bananarana 2008/1/16 - 18:59:4
It's the leaf that's making me think "Earth" immediately. But looking at all the details you put in the pic shows that she's clearly Wind, from the spirals, to the light colors, and even the leaf itself, what with being something that is easily manipulated by wind.

Her waves are gorgeous, by the way. Wish I could get my hair to look like that.
baeduxai 2008/1/16 - 19:32:41
hey this is awesome. Like the soft colours :D
sabii 2008/1/17 - 6:32:26
astronautical 2008/1/19 - 8:15:43
Oh my, this is absolutely stunning.
When I saw the leaf, I thought of it being blown around in the wind, but I think it would have looked cooler if the leaf was an autumnal color, rather than green.
But this is lovely nonetheless, especially her hair.
o 3o
blumeaniandglove 2008/1/19 - 14:6:37
wonderfully soft :)
naty 2008/1/19 - 16:10:49
Awesome job on the curly hair <3!
lorelai 2008/1/20 - 19:32:26
Just sooo beautiful. @_@
jakusama 2008/1/25 - 19:12:5
Wow. Just.. she's gorgeous. I see wind, but I can see the Earth from the leaf, but I definitely would call it wind first. She's just freggin gorgeous Fabulous job. Love the color around the eyes the most, I think.

Still searching for that elusive style..I like the colors on this one, though. ^^
baeduxai 2008/1/15 - 17:14:4
lol u have a very sketchy style.

Is it legal to say that the nostrils are far apart. Well... YAYY FOR GIANT NOSESSS i drew a couple myself today at art class. I must be the only one noticing. This place is dead these days.

*Phoenix Down anyone?*
bananarana 2008/1/16 - 18:59:57
The colors on this one are great, because violet and yellow are color contrasts. Putting them together just helps your subject just pop out of the page!
lorelai 2008/1/20 - 19:34:44
Sorry about the deadness ;_;
baeduxai 2008/1/20 - 19:40:25

First trial while working from this site. Still getting used to the tools a bit.
baeduxai 2008/1/13 - 18:30:35
looks real soft and innocent.

What's ironic is i'm just listening to "Cloud Smiles" from ADvent CHildren. XD. aww... fits so well.
bananarana 2008/1/16 - 19:2:47
It takes awhile to get used to the tools. I've been drawing here for years, and I still have yet to discover how to use all of them!

This looks like one of those photographs where you have the flash on and are standing too close to the person you're taking a picture of. Their face turns white and everything is highlighted to the extreme. : )
lorelai 2008/1/20 - 19:35:5
welcome! :) it's neat how this picture looks sort of burned into the canvas.

Was going through old escrow pictures with the rescue feature, and found something with this pose. :) I redid it, and am pretty happy with the results.
baeduxai 2008/1/13 - 18:31:53
wonder if this ditched drawing had plans ^_^;;.

Anyways. Nice sketchy affect. :)
bananarana 2008/1/16 - 19:3:40
Haha, I'm glad you skipped over my escrow, then. I was worried that it'd disappear while I was on vacation.

I kind of like the pose too, actually, so I don't blame you for nabbing this one and finishing it off.
lorelai 2008/1/20 - 19:36:4
ahhh i never tried the rescue function. I suck. I know. XD
The pose is remarkable! so fluid, and natural. really great =D

He's a very important man you know.

he has a tower.

(anyone else a Mirrormask fan?)

crits and comments welcome, by the way.
i'm still rusty. :/
golden 2008/1/4 - 4:2:44
I like the use of textures there :)
baeduxai 2008/1/7 - 13:17:19
The textures here are awesome. And the dodge at the back :) I lub dodge tooll.. <3
bananarana 2008/1/16 - 19:7:31
Never even heard of mirrormask, actually. What is it? Book/movie/game?

And wooaaah, lots of textures in this one. A lot of this picture is colored with the same shade (red-brown-tan range), which is usually fine, but with the addition of the light blue and bright orange on the right, I feel like your main guy isn't getting all the attention he deserves. He kind of "blends in" (not *really* blends in, but rather, he *matches*) with the background. On the other hand, the bright blue and orange pops out at me, so my eyes keep wandering over there in spite of my efforts to keep them on him.

(all those squiggles in his jacket are just trippy, haha)
blumeaniandglove 2008/1/19 - 14:8:26
to view this picture you're supposed to look into his 'eyes' and then you can see that the colored darts on the right are actually flying fish. I'm not sure how that happened. haha

Mirrormask is a beautiful film that's based on a children's book that was written by Neil Gaiman. I really and highly recommend it.

and thanks for the comments, by the way :D
lorelai 2008/1/20 - 19:36:26
ooooh. you had me at "Neil Gaiman." =D

Mr. Monkey didnt see this coming.

Having lots of fun with the "muha" look >]

lolz i love it looks so devious. Yea i know its a little messy and stuff. But I wanted to try to use thick out lines and simpleness and NOT use black.... O_O

So I guess this is it. C&C plz ^_^

twinkledraak 2008/1/3 - 11:29:5
It's funny XD! I like it how you used the lines and the spots in the background. :)

Yep. You got all your bases covered. : )
baeduxai 2008/1/16 - 19:34:12
lmao thanks. I should draw again sometime soon. But my desktop computer has the usb too far so I can't connect the tablet. And I really want to use a tablet. (It's got me really bad at the mouse it spoils u watch out)

lorelai 2008/1/20 - 19:38:7
