A landscapey thing. I had a reference for the buildings:


K ^^;;
snoopywar 2005/7/7 - 14:38:44
Wow. :D
I like the way you did the buildings way better than the real picture. xD
The soft colors are always nice. :3
happywaterbottle 2005/7/7 - 15:22:54

hey i'm new here! this is a very unique board i must say!

well anyways, in this picture i'm not going to a realism style (this is my anime style -.-;;). and most of you might notice the timer too. it didn't really take me that long; i was eating my meal for a while.

mika-kun 2005/6/22 - 1:10:7
Welcome to TACo, that's a pretty spectacular debut pic to start off with too......and a style I think we're definately going to enjoy seeing around these pages....:)
mateem 2005/6/22 - 1:22:8
The highlights you placed on the face and shawl just make the picture pop. An absolutely gorgeous piece. I like your anime style, very unique!
shadrad 2005/6/22 - 9:9:19
Welcome to TACo! I'm gonna enjoy seeing your art here, this is spectacular!

This is a gorgeous style! <3 x3 Welcome to Taco. Beautiful debut pic :3
heavenlystrike 2005/6/22 - 14:14:4
holy...omG it's so GORGEOUS <3 the details on the sheet, it's amazing....the shading is really original and good o_O and the hair...i mean kewlest purple hair ever <3 welcome here, i hope you draw tons of oekakis :D
mitsu 2005/6/23 - 1:51:5
Holy mackerel! We have a winner. :) Gotta love how stylish and different this is. Such cool facial structure and lovely highlights, and the scarf looks soooo silky... :3
bananarana 2005/6/23 - 4:28:9
Usually I only log in when I'm about to draw something, but I just *had* to comment on this piece. First off, hello to TACo! We're all very happy you came, because I'm pretty sure I'm speaking for us all when I say I want to eat your talent. :D Secondly, I love the patterns you drew on there. Attention to detail is always rewarding. Lovely use of highlights; draws my eyes to all the right places. Beautiful job.
lorelai 2005/6/23 - 11:27:37
Gorgeous work. I really look forward to more :) Welcome to TACo!
snoopywar 2005/6/23 - 17:29:10
Those eyes are stunningly beautiful. :)
The pattern on her cloak thing is nicely done as well. ^^
Welcome to TACo. ;)
zestroy 2005/6/23 - 23:19:7
wow welcome to TACo
I really love the patterns you've painted on her hood =O
such an exotic piece
maggie_sue 2005/6/24 - 2:18:58
aaah, yess--you can always tell an excellent work by how your eyes constantly move from place to place following each aspect of it. This kept my eyes moving, not many people can do that. Well done :D
tayley-chan 2005/6/25 - 7:21:55
Oh Wow...

Let me throw my statement of welcome onto the pile here, and also say I'm in awe of your highlighting style and color choice. This is a lovely piece and we'll all be on the look out for more, surely.

OMG O_O this is SO good you did a VERY good job remaking the picture. it looks so real and it's even stylized because it's done in all circles. i'm so amazed *___*
mika-kun 2005/6/15 - 15:27:35
One of the most beautiful sights ever......shame it's also one of the most destructive man has to offer.....

artanis 2005/6/18 - 15:34:37
*_* Awesome job on the textures, and with catching that glow in the clouds.
bananarana 2005/6/21 - 6:27:18
Nice change of pace from the typical landscape/figurine that we often see on this board. Not that those are bad (guilty as charged), but you gotta admit that this is wicked awesome to look at. Makes me shiver just thinking about it.

Oh, what a beautiful picture. I'm in love with it. Reminds me of a Marylin Monroe girl. I love her<3 :D

Good to see someone else who appreciates black and white art...I just love that style you have, you gotta stick around and do more!!!

*cough! cough!*

omg the hair the gloves the feathery deco the LIPS the *kaboomheadexplode* :O~
emerald 2005/6/13 - 20:7:36
Smoking isn't cool.
dolly 2005/6/17 - 22:4:10
Smoking is not cool! In the late years it was very very fashionable. Considering that...
maggie_sue 2005/6/17 - 23:52:31
in the time period shown here, nobody knew really the dangers of smoking-that's why so many people did it, emz...
artanis 2005/6/18 - 15:36:40
I love the effect of her ciggarette being the only thing colored in the picture... her lips and those feathers are gorgeous, and I love the hair and smoke too ^_^
mitsu 2005/6/18 - 22:7:10
Woah, you perfectly captured the look and mood here! Amazing job rendering all those textures in one picture. :O~~ I have to say my favorite part is the shoulder with the feathers. Mmmmm...
dolly 2005/6/18 - 22:10:55
sure enough! if you heard Lucille Ball talking later on in her life, it was so horrid! My great grandmother was a bad smoker too. They even drunk whiskey when they were thirsty, instead of water. A singer would be up performing with a little whiskey in his hands. Just making things worse.

one thing is the head is too big for the body. dun' know if you meant to do that. looks good either way ^^ awesome job on the coloring
senobdec 2005/6/9 - 4:57:28

mika-kun 2005/6/9 - 14:4:22
Wow, that is extremely cool, excellent digitization effect....:)
heavenlystrike 2005/6/9 - 19:41:34
this is freaking me out by it's originality! I mean wow, you came up with an amazing ideaa! I love her face, how you shaded it and everything, just beautiful <3 Simply Amazing. but, lol i'll think i'll go hide with zestroy from that chip, its scARY *hides behind chair*
snoopywar 2005/6/9 - 20:8:55
This is really awesome!! :D
Love the way her hand's getting digitized and all. :)
The shading is lovely too. ;3

You do such wond'rfully rendered faces, m'lady. The eye-nose region is more heavenly than Philly cream cheese. >:D

I love the soft colors you used
p_b 2005/6/5 - 0:36:43
If there is something wrong with pretty clouds for a BG then i'm screwed .__. besides i like simple BGs like this.
and mitsu's right the face is beautifully done. The high cheek bones make her look so elegant. and erm...i just can't help myself
TOGA PARTY!!!!!1!!eleven =D
lorelai 2005/6/5 - 0:39:27
absolutely gorgeous. just when i'd scraped myself off the floor after looking at p_b's picture I got this and right back down I went!!
charsiewpau 2005/6/5 - 1:58:1
beautiful profile and body pose work
mad colouring skills you have.
mika-kun 2005/6/5 - 3:48:50
What! yet another stunning pic comes to the polished room.....like buses 3 turn up together.
I think the bg totally compliments the main figure and just looks so right......truly gorgeous work!...:)
snoopywar 2005/6/5 - 7:16:41
She's so beautiful and elegent. Wonder if she's royal. ;)
I agree, I like the simple background, it suits her well in this particular pose. ^^
happywaterbottle 2005/6/5 - 9:32:18
buuh soo nice ;.; what a gorgeous face...
and the background is really nice too!

I was going to say, Wow P_b, that took you no time flat?

I love the coloring and that little thingy hanging off her beanie. The fur an dthe hair and the skin look absolutly real, and i want her clothes.
mariemaia 2005/6/4 - 20:0:23
That weird animal thing is so CUTE!!! It's like some kind of mutant llama o_O. I love how you did the girl's hair! I also love the cloths! I LOVE EVERYTHING!!! You've inspired me to draw...
snoopywar 2005/6/4 - 20:31:46

Oolala! This is fantabulous and deliciously detailed, mmm. Such a pretty dress, especially the combination of sheer fabric and those awesome woven-ribbon sleaves. :O And I really, really want to live in that horn house thing. <3 how you've used depth of field, too--what a great touch! :)
kelli 2005/6/5 - 0:30:58
this is so unique...it's like a twisted version of some fairy tale...I wish I could climb into this picture and see whats going on =D

So Dormando and I were just minding our own business doing work and art and suddenly Dormando says "WOH nice pic in the Polished Room today," so like a noobtard I scamper over and lo and behold THIS PICTURE has flattened me like roadkill the end.
zestroy 2005/6/5 - 0:44:45
wow, the translucent cloth is amazing D=
I've tried painting them so many times and failed at every attempt ><"
The horned house is abit distracting though, the way it overlayed with the nose got a hell lot of my attention from the furry creature =p
charsiewpau 2005/6/5 - 1:57:14

Wow. this is breathtakingly beautiful
mika-kun 2005/6/5 - 3:42:17

kaiomi 2005/6/5 - 3:55:51
That creature is awesome! The detail...0_o especially on the little things like her braid and arm things. I bow to your greatness.

This is really cool. I love her hair, and the funny little animal is really cute. I wanna hug it. I think I will. *hug* Okay. But her hair and her clothes are just awesome... very neat.
lavalizard 2005/6/5 - 16:41:50
That is so so so good! Such an awesome critter, and the details on the fur and the girl's hair and clothes are excellent. I believe I see a house made of a giant tusk in the background. It doesn't get any cooler than that^_^

She also had a fling with a werewolf once, but that's a long story ^_^

And her hand is very lovely. Her eyes too. And the scenery is very nice. ^^

First, I love the name Fynn.
Second, she looksl ike she'd have had a fling with a werewolf once.
Thirdy, you rock my socks off, this is so awesome. I love her hair and the necklace looking thing of flowers/plant... very awesome.
blumeaniandglove 2005/5/28 - 17:56:49
she looks so mysterous. I've watched the animation about thirty times already, but i can't figure out how you do such smooth lineart. It really isn't fair Tayley, you keep such nasty secrets.

I like her choker and how you did the background, and also the green shineys on her skin. beautiful, once more.
lorelai 2005/5/29 - 14:43:19
my favorite part of this is her hair...what beautiful curly hair!!

And that hair and lineart are both very impressive

I worked on this on and off all day
The big lady goes by the name of Rio. And the lil guy(yes, guy) next to her is called Bleau, pronounced Blow. That's also my screen name. They are my personas. Different aspects of my personality.
Dunno if I went overboard with the coloring or not.
I've got much room for improvement, I always welcome criticism <3

syzygy 2005/4/1 - 2:28:9
Mmm for the colors, and the hair! Oh, such yummy hair.. The fairy seems kind of out of place to me.. because of the softness.. the contrast with the solids. Maybe thats just me. But thats an artistic thing. But his hand looks kind of weird to me..the lines seem too sloppy in respect to the rest of the picture...... but I worship the hair. Oh, the hair!!

I like how the background is soft and out of focus, giving more attention to the positive space. The colors work together wonderfully. My only crit is that on the hand, the thumb looks a bit skinny in proportion to the fingers, the chin is super pointy-although every element of this piece is thing and delicate, a little shape to the chin would show a meeting of the jawlines and make more sense. Also, with the lineart on the fingers--could use a little cleaning up, but not much, just doesn't look as clean as the lines you made with the bezziere tool on the hair and face, and it creates a sense of uneveness, for lack of a better word, seeing as I'm dead tired and ready for the weekend and just took a huge art history test with around 100 slides-artist, nationality, date, subject, etc-to memorize...phew. But anywho's, just a couple nit-picky things, seeing as you have done great work here, they seemed out of place in this piece, so keep up the energy throughout the whole ordeal, and keep up the pace so you won't lose quality in the small stuff. good work :D

I love the background. Really lovely. It's sort of fade-y (for lack of a better word) and out of focus, ao it's a really nice contrast with the foreground. I also like the color choices. The greens in the eyes are cool.
