more like a what I hope to look like in the near furture
happywaterbottle 2007/12/17 - 18:9:42
aaahhh!! such a gorgeous portrait!!!
lovely eyes!
elolinon 2007/12/18 - 10:50:46
I love the colours :) And how there's splashes of blue a bit here and there, I can't decide if it feels warm or cold ! Lovely portrait.

twinkledraak 2007/12/19 - 10:36:21
It's look like a real painting *pretty* :)!
frosty_glow 2007/12/19 - 19:45:30
wow thanks guys haha :)
I worked really hard on this one
I think i've improved a lot
maemay 2007/12/20 - 9:43:41
That's wow i love the the texture sketchiness of it.
golden 2007/12/20 - 12:41:55
I agree with elolinon, that blue looks really good.
lorelai 2007/12/20 - 12:44:30
phenomenal. O_O
astronautical 2007/12/22 - 18:10:56
I rather love this drawing. Especially the shape of the eyes and the lips.
I can hardly ever make lips look realistic, and I eternally admire you for having the talent to do so.
artanis 2007/12/23 - 20:30:25
this is amazing!! i agree about the blue, too.

Animal Crossing...does anyone here play it? The last oekaki I did was on Dec. 28 of last year...13 pages back or so...heh. Hello again.
lorelai 2007/12/16 - 0:43:35
*gush* omg, this is so great!! It captures so much from the game except you make the character SO CUTE!!! =D (I don't like the character designs much :X ) really really really good work here!!
twinkledraak 2007/12/19 - 10:36:50
That's really cute XD!
xiaa 2007/12/20 - 21:17:53
Oh my god, I love this type of style XDD!!! I love how paintery it looks, and the fish is the cutest thing XDD Auuuugh, I love this <333

lorelai 2007/12/16 - 0:43:52
oooh nice interpretation! good to see your art again ;_;
twinkledraak 2007/12/19 - 10:37:26
That's so great you have a very nice style of art :)!
golden 2007/12/20 - 12:45:19
Why do you have to be so good? Why. do you have to be so good? Your amazingness disturbs me. I always end up spending hours trying to figure out how you do these paintings. Ok not hours but.. at least minutes.
astronautical 2007/12/22 - 18:12:37
This is lovely!
I especially like the highlights on the apple and the jagged edges on her hair. I really draws the eye.
Wonderful work.

Just a little experimentation before I study for my physics final. I already see all the stuff that's wrong with it.. so I don't really need crits. Just had to draw! It's been so long!

<<Beat the dean!>>
lorelai 2007/12/16 - 0:44:14
drawing's a great way to unwind before finals! =D
jakusama 2007/12/18 - 22:32:8
I bet you didn't LOOK like that before your final.

This is my first oekaki ever, believe it or not.
The only thing that influenced this drawing was boredom, and it was done with my ever-so-crappy ball mouse.
twil-k 2007/12/12 - 19:20:59
Well I really like it! I like how you did all the textures, especially on her hair style.
lorelai 2007/12/16 - 0:44:52
i really like your use of textures! normally I think people go a bit overboard with textures their first try (or tries), but in this case i think it is fitting!

agent-pocky 2007/12/11 - 18:49:8
Okay, with my luck this probably won't load. xD But I felt like doing something a bit princess-y with my character because I'm simply dying to see Enchanted. I always preferred the princess's peasant dresses more than their gowns.

So here we are. =D The lineart was a pain. I couldn't figure how to do anything that would be soft and look good... but I had (waay too much) fun with the coloring.
xiaa 2007/12/12 - 16:1:44
That is an awesome way to color the sky! And I want to see Enchanted so bad too .___. I think you captured a really cute fairytale-ish moment here ^^
lorelai 2007/12/16 - 0:45:17
ooh i really wanna see that movie XD i cracked up so hard in the commercial when the singing prince (?) got knocked over by the bikers!

Study break from exams. There's prolly an hour less than the time says.

It feels incomplete somehow, but I don't know what else I could have put in. Any suggestions for the ocean and sand? Or just shading in general, mine's awful...
xiaa 2007/12/12 - 10:6:30
This is pretty peaceful! I think maybe some brighter highlights on the water might look nice, but at the same time, the sky looks kinda cloudy so maybe there wouldn't be that much highlights >___>

Is she waiting for someone? :D
lorelai 2007/12/16 - 0:46:10
your colors and brushstrokes aren't bad, I think it's just that you didn't really lighten up the colors enough to suggest a background that is a lot farther away from the viewer than the girl, so it looks flat :)
artanis 2007/12/23 - 20:43:44
very pretty, i love the atmosphere. the colors all go really well together, too.
in the psych class i took this semester we had this really interesting talk about depth cues - some of them were superobvious (like overlap), but some of them were totally helpful for drawing - like things getting less textured in the distance, and being darker or lighter (like lorelai mentioned). it might help to try making the ocean, sand, and sky to either get darker or lighter as they approach the horizon. hope any of that is helpful :)

Just trying something different.
The hair was really fun to do. =D
xiaa 2007/12/12 - 10:3:53
The hair is so pretty *__* You can see each strand!! Omg!!!

I love her skintones too X33
lorelai 2007/12/16 - 0:46:41
cool!! i love it when people try different things :) you've got some nice hair here!

I tried to finish but ended up getting insanely pissed off at the face so I kinda just stopped...by the way I haven't been here in a REALLY REALLY long time I think its actually been like....2 years or something so I'm Lathiel....and this little "failure" piece I think sufficiently introduces myself
sankyu 2007/12/6 - 14:54:18
hello, failure or not those gloves and the rest is brilliantly shaded..
lorelai 2007/12/10 - 10:14:51
really nice work on everything that is visible!!!!

But here I am again!!! :D

Ello, didn't know Sasuke was an oekaki doodler :P
Sorry though, the board is always hungry :(
xiaa 2007/12/7 - 17:4:37
... He totally isn't Sasuke!!! D:
lorelai 2007/12/10 - 10:16:3
nice use of minimal colors! =D

havn't drawn in a while so i thought I would do a little doodle...not really impressed with how it turned out...but whatever.
xiaa 2007/12/4 - 14:48:30
I really like how you shaded the face! :D The hair is so wild too! Ilike how it curls a lot.
lorelai 2007/12/16 - 0:47:59
i especially like the use of the canvas in this one :) if I make suggest though, it looks like you pushed a bit of the face over to the left so that you would only have to do exactly 1 eye, 50% of the nose, and 50% of the lips. Since photography rarely gets that perfect, it might actually look more natural if you did just a tad more of the nose .

I really don't know how to colour. Half the time I was lost on the shading. Practice practice practice!
lorelai 2007/11/21 - 13:38:19
great attempt!! practice and references are the key :)
