I don't know, not the usual heavenly strike picture but i like it ^^
surreal 2005/8/17 - 21:7:46
Wow this is fantasticly AMAZING. ♥
You are right, this isn't the usual heavenlystrike, but I like it. :D
happywaterbottle 2005/8/17 - 21:35:47
I really like the colooors! so many colors! colors make me happy n_n the tree makes me happy too! maybe you can do more of those trees? with different colors, different time of the day (well this looks like twilight to me, you could do dawn, day, noon, and night) and euh, another animal in it :D
eeh this inspires me XD
blueflame0 2005/8/18 - 4:12:15
whats that? a fish in my tree? nonsense :)
xyzadt 2005/8/18 - 12:23:57
Nice, bright colors. And a fish! >w< This is lovely.
spazzyzombie 2005/8/18 - 16:32:51
awww i luff it! it's really cool essp. the fish... -runs away with the fish-
snoopywar 2005/8/18 - 16:52:17
Pet fish? My fish? ;__;
I like your blue grass. @.@;
yumeji 2005/8/19 - 1:47:29
This certainly fits the description for "surreal." XD
I feel like I'm looking at a surrealistic version of the Tree of Knowledge.
tarlinqua 2005/8/19 - 12:56:33
Wah! This is such a wicked picture! I love the fishie and how you made the leaves all spot-like. I want that blue grass :o! I'd totally stick this kind of picture on my notebooks :).
mika-kun 2005/8/19 - 13:29:26
Wow! definately a departure from your usual style, and a departure I hope we will see more of....excellent!!!...:D
lili 2005/8/19 - 15:48:48
Wow. I lub the background, and the grass. ^^
*gasps* Is that paopu fruit?!
mitsu 2005/8/19 - 21:53:49
Wow, this is indeed surreal. Delicious colors and stylization. I want that fish!!
carrath 2005/8/20 - 15:56:29
The fish itself is great, but it being in a tree makes it even better. xD
p_b 2005/8/21 - 14:8:57
haha if i had kids i'd paint this on there wall :)
it's SO cute and pretty. I love how you used dots to shade and blend it gives the background a cool smokey effect

was gonna post this in the drawing room but then it started to look better then i expected
comments & Critisum welcome
mitsu 2005/8/16 - 21:17:47
O_O Scary as heck, which in this case is a mighty good thing. :] What I wanna know is whether or not she can see with that thing, 'cause that has serious possibilities for all kinds of wierdness. XP Aww, and the little ruffles on her sleeves are cuuute!
blueflame0 2005/8/16 - 22:4:7
creepy.. :O like the purple effect. Its pretty. Pretty scary.
tarlinqua 2005/8/19 - 12:58:50
Eek! O_O! The eyeball on her tongue is somewhat disturbing to me, but it looks cool like it's coming toward you. I like how you drew her dress and her hair :).
mika-kun 2005/8/19 - 13:27:40
She could easily get a job in a hospital as an Endoscope....which is gross in more ways than one......:)
carrath 2005/8/20 - 15:54:33
Terrifying! I can imagine it coming closer and closer... I like her dress :D

xyzadt 2005/8/16 - 8:43:15
Ok, i hope this is good enough to be in the polished room.... ^^; This is my original character, Lilke; who is contemplating her (uber cool) knife. Yesh, i know her head is too big... and she has no neck.... i just seem to have a knack for screwing up really obvious proportions lately.... ^^; C&C please.
lorelai 2005/8/16 - 11:52:57
This is so awesome - i love the hair!! My only crit is that the night doesn't look sharp, it looks more like a block due to the soft shading. :)
blueflame0 2005/8/16 - 15:41:0
it has a cool Cel-shaded feeling and I like it but like she said, the knife looks dull :P also her chest looks alittle funny to me o_O but its good!
mitsu 2005/8/16 - 21:14:39
Delicious shading, 'specially on the hair! So soft and silky...mmm! The knife design is quite cool, too; is it just me or does the pommel look like a brain?! I gotta get me one of those. XD I do agree with blueflame that the chest looks a little off--she seems to have pecs rather than breasts. :p But I wuvs it anyway. :}
tarlinqua 2005/8/19 - 13:0:27
It looks like a painting, with a soft sort of edge to it :o! Her hair is so fluffy and awesome :D. The details on the blade and hilt are a really nice touch too ^_^!
mika-kun 2005/8/19 - 13:25:51
Looks like she has a wrap on, which explains the flat chest....the knife does look a bit dull (as in not sharp) but then again ceremonial knives usually are.
Awesome pic....I like it....lots...:)
carrath 2005/8/20 - 15:53:16
The colors are so nice and soft. Her haircut is simple, but I love it. If I had the guts I'd cut mine like that.
p_b 2005/8/21 - 14:13:37
how did you manage to make your BG the exact same color as your subject and still have your subject stand out x_X i doubt that fastinates anyone else but me >_>

mintyfreshchu 2005/8/14 - 15:15:41
O______O Le time is off. Haha, It took me 3 hours-ish. Now, Roy Mustang anyone? (yum). I had to look up the transmutation circle on his glove... so I guess that's the only reference. Hah, I've always wanted to draw Roy with an open shirt. *drool*
blueflame0 2005/8/14 - 19:22:59
well the hand looks REALLY good... o_o maybe you shoud spend more time with the face next time.. but it looks good D:"
senobdec 2005/8/15 - 4:22:9
Tend to agree with Blueflame. Also, the middle finger would probably be a bit longer to be proportional to the index finger... the joints don't always have to line up :D. And Roy is awesome.
viva 2005/8/15 - 5:26:9
Roy! Neat..
I would agree with them on the shading though. Most of the face looks fairly flat.
snoopywar 2005/8/15 - 10:46:16
Nice hand. =)
Roy Mustang is wicked cool. xD
lorelai 2005/8/15 - 12:22:23
My fave person from FMA <3333
mitsu 2005/8/15 - 21:55:13
Nicely done on the hand, in my opinion one of the toughest parts of human anatomy. :) I also like how you've set up three levels of depth with the hand, body, and symbol. Tres cool. :3
tarlinqua 2005/8/19 - 13:6:22
You did a mad job on the hand :). I like his expression and your lineart n_n!
quentara47 2005/8/21 - 11:4:36
GASP SQUEEL! AYYY its mustang! He's so cool! yay!

tarlinqua 2005/8/12 - 21:49:35
The picture probably took a little more than half of what the timer says ^^;.. There are many lineart related problems with this picture e_e;; ... The colours look sort of odd because I'm totally reliant on the palettes. o_o;;;
phil 2005/8/12 - 22:15:19
u used only the pallet! *shock* but it has worked so well dont blame u tho the colours dont save after u save pic kinda hard to carry on and mix the same colours again , i gonna stare at this i dont see ne line art probs ^_^ the back round is amazin too
pure 2005/8/12 - 22:15:28
Its beautiful. I almost wish I was as skilled as you in drawing.. but if you look below its obvious people who draw stick figures are better than me. :)
lorelai 2005/8/12 - 22:58:30
Geebus, this is so gorgeous!!! if it's okay, i'll be moving it to the Gallery - i've made the decision recently to NOT move around pieces if I can help it, but this really is really lovely, maybe you can start posting to the Gallery more? XD the other reason I'm moving this is because the Polished Room's been moving pretty fast today, so this would alleviate some of that traffic as well :)
naty 2005/8/13 - 0:34:44
omfg o---o why does this radiate with perfectness?
The hair and eyes are just so full of love somehow <3! Exquisite work~!!!
yumeji 2005/8/13 - 3:47:44
Oh wow, this is nice. I love their eyes, and the sky.
Nice to see a change of pace in the Gallery. XD
mika-kun 2005/8/13 - 6:3:23
I'm pretty sure buying anime cels, scanning them and submitting them is against the rules.......what do you mean you drew it?...no way!!!
mitsu 2005/8/13 - 14:15:49
*o* Beautimous! It's so cool how you've drawn us into the picture by making it look as though they're turning to us. :D The clouds are really lovely and soft and cottony.
kaiomi 2005/8/14 - 4:19:1
woah...the bg is beautiful! I love your style! *eats it* ^^ Their eyes are so shiny...
snoopywar 2005/8/14 - 10:20:30
Lovely. Absolutely lovely. =)
Gorgeous sky you've got going there too.
ienjoydrawing 2005/8/14 - 16:22:4
This is absolutely beautiful.

*stares at the drawing and admires it*

Uhm, anyway, this piece is very inspiring and refreshing - like everyone else already said, the eyes and background are particularly gorgeous.

Amazing stuff as always! (^__^)b
tarlinqua 2005/8/19 - 12:50:28
Eep! I'm sorry for being a pain in the rear, not posting in the right rooms and pushing the art of others down ;_;! *bows head in shame*

Thank you all for the kind comments :')! *hugs you all*

carrath 2005/8/20 - 15:37:3
The character designs are nice. Both of their hair is so pretty and shiny. The background is very majestic.

Akane Tendo! I tried to draw Shampoo<3 at first but I couldnt get it right... so here's Akane. :)

Ive been reading Ranma ALOT lately... I <3 it sooo much. heh.
naty 2005/8/13 - 0:26:17
Omg it's Akane Tendo! I love that series <3! u drew her quite nicely tho now i'm not quite sure if her eyes are yellow or brown ^^'.. still looks good either way, lovely bgness :)
tarlinqua 2005/8/19 - 13:9:40
Aw she's so cute ^o^! The blue highlights are wicked :). Your background is so fabric-like :o! Nice job on this!
carrath 2005/8/20 - 15:50:13
She looks shocked :O I like how the hair was drawn, it's very nice.

Saved the animation this time by request.

I'm not really pleased with this one though, for some reason I just couldn't get the face to align the right way. Thus I'm placing it in the polished room.
Reference: Sister.

C&C Welcomed.
phil 2005/8/12 - 15:28:1
ty for saving the animation this time
i like the face a lot especially the nose im not to keen on her top tho dont seem as much detail as the rest and nice tattu XD
mika-kun 2005/8/12 - 16:3:8
Awesome! doesn't even begin to cover it.....;)
senobdec 2005/8/13 - 0:9:12
WHOO! Awesome.
naty 2005/8/13 - 0:28:52
:0!! Yumeji! Is there anything you cant do?! By jebus this is so freaking fantastic~! (btw ur site rules hardcore @O@') So much love for the hair and lips and..*carries on endlessly*
snoopywar 2005/8/14 - 10:21:30
I like the hair.
mitsu 2005/8/14 - 11:34:45
Yay for animation! Typical Yumeji art--and by "typical" I mean extra awesome. :D
lorelai 2005/8/14 - 12:10:25
Niiiiice work. I happen to be glad you posted it in the Polished Room, but it's because you already have 2 front-page Gallery pics, not because this one is sub-par :] (Incidentally, it's not really my intention to make the Polished Room a lower-quality room than the Gallery, contact me if that doesn't make sense.)
carrath 2005/8/20 - 15:39:54
All the single strands of her hair makes it look so natural. I think her eyes and nose are both well done :D

So should I stop being cruel to pretty boys? or are you guys cool with this villany of mine ^_~

Poor guy... looks like he's got The Consumption :p

Bit of expreimentation with shading/lighting in this one... *shrugs* i think it came out okay. Opinions?
blumeaniandglove 2005/8/11 - 23:18:6
I'm cool with the cruel :D
Nice shading though, loev the smooth lineart (as always.) and color choices.


snoopywar 2005/8/12 - 9:36:7
I love the shadows! >:D
And the wing rocks. x3
Though... Um.. <.< His right hand kinda looks like its in a funny position.
Please don't kill me. >.>
lorelai 2005/8/12 - 10:49:32
Just to expand on snoopywar's comment, i think it's because his arm's not curved around his stomach quite as much as it would be (it seems only his hand curves over, when if you hold your hand in that position, the curvature begins right after the elbow)
The brick wall is fabulous, and of course the pretty boy :]
mika-kun 2005/8/12 - 16:18:8
*Hands Tayley a big baseball bat*....NO! ......please do carry on....;)
naty 2005/8/13 - 0:30:5
*agrees with Mika* lovely lighting effects <3.. more pretty boys please >D

I tried to add my signature, but for some reason it just won't let me continue this!! Oh well...
So, I don't know if the timer resets itself after you safety save it... but if it does, I really worked a few days on it. (My first polished room picture; I hope it's up to par. I personally think it is. :D)
So, it's my friend's character Vixy (the blonde), and my character Roka. (the redhead).
agent-pocky 2005/8/10 - 23:9:38
Is there anyway I can make this work?? D: It's just shwoing up as an x... good thing I took a screenshot before I submitted. :\
mika-kun 2005/8/11 - 1:21:5

If you have no other pics saved then hit resume, it will give the option to try to recover a lost pic, if that fails try to give as many details as you can on the forum's 'bug's' thread...
agent-pocky 2005/8/12 - 4:15:34
Alright, thanks. :D But if it can't be retrieved, would I be able to post the link to the finished picture? (I was able to take a screenshot, and put it on deviantART.)
lorelai 2005/8/12 - 10:50:45
Well, give the retrieval a shot, and if not, link it and we'll see what we can do :)
agent-pocky 2005/8/15 - 23:20:13
It won't retrieve... here's the link to the picture: [link]

The Forgotten Puppet

482kb how scary to think id lost a few days of work twice...
lorelai 2005/8/10 - 17:38:21
Wonderfully done. I love the wood texture and the background especially. The strings don't quite make sense though, you might want to look into marionette rigging - it's a toughie (i had to animate marionettes once X_X)
snoopywar 2005/8/11 - 10:7:18
That puppet looks great!! And the background. Wooo-weee.... Sort of half like broken glass and half like mystical... Fortune telling places. ^^;
This looks awesome though!!! And the idea's interesting too. =)
