Don't Look Straight into her Eyes
You'll drown in them....

ultraviolet_raiz 2005/7/27 - 19:16:15
But but..her eyes are so pretty. I'll just stare a little longer <3
I love her nose. Yes, I do.
tarren 2005/7/27 - 21:35:4
D: so gorgeous. <3 I love those lips, and that spacey(I can't find the word for it DX) sort of expression.
happywaterbottle 2005/7/28 - 1:54:17
but but but her eyes are so pretty! I can't stop staring at them o.o *drowns*
keraha 2005/7/28 - 3:43:46
Don't look, indeed. Good lord, her eyes are *piercing.* And her lips and nose! <3 Gorgeous picture.

Sometimes she shines.

Hello again, TACo. I still can't get used to the changes, but, I don't know why.
tarren 2005/7/27 - 13:56:56
man, I so am in love with your colouring style. so smooth <3 I like the hair best :3
mitsu 2005/7/27 - 15:34:53
Silky smooth goodness! :3 Reminds me somehow of icecream. I assure you this is a good thing. The colors complement eachother vury well indeed. And, zomg, the nose is too cute not to pinch. XD Wubbing the hair, too.
lorelai 2005/7/27 - 21:8:50
This is so gorgeous. T_T I know I gave you Gallery privileges, please excuse me for moving this over - but I think this is definitely something for that room!
irkyturkey 2005/7/28 - 8:35:48

snoopywar 2005/7/28 - 18:53:32
Such gorgeous hair. <:3
surreal 2005/7/29 - 0:41:46

It's beautiful. Just BEAUTIFUL. ♥
mika-kun 2005/7/30 - 6:41:0
Arrrgh! the anim dies before I get to see how you did that awesome hair.....:(
This is certainly a most impressive piece, truly amazing colouring and shading .....:D
carrath 2005/8/3 - 20:58:37

blumeaniandglove 2005/7/25 - 21:49:9
:) Yay, Mitsu! This really is magical. Everything is so beautiful. I love the lace on heer sleeve
lorelai 2005/7/25 - 22:34:37
Stop making me move your stuff to Gallery mitsu!! Think of it this way..give some other poor sap a chance to get in the Hall of Fame. rofflecakes XD
snoopywar 2005/7/25 - 23:9:52
Wow... Not only is she beautiful and lovely in every aspect, but the scenery matches her beauty to boot. x3
She has wonderful looking wings! And yes, the lace is just too sweet for the eyes. xP

remi-187 2005/7/27 - 14:45:1
Count von Uber COSPLAYING????
the face looks almost exactly the same.. seriously!!
good drawing though
dekutree64 2005/7/28 - 2:34:34
Yay, you drew again already!
I like her face, and the oceany foggyness in the background.

And your file size is not pure evil, because it seems to indicate that the old 500KB limit is gone!
irkyturkey 2005/7/28 - 8:41:2
what a beautiful fairy! i like her glowy wand, can you make me one?!! :D, the background is stunning, you are the queen of colours mitsu!!
maggie_sue 2005/7/29 - 14:11:16
screw it, I'm passing my color tut to you, mitsu.
mika-kun 2005/7/30 - 6:44:13
If the girl herself didn't blow me away the background would on it's own.....man that is some awesome fencing....and wow are those skies dramatic or what!...:)

zestroy 2005/7/25 - 3:56:37
This drove me nuts. I couldn't get my characters to look right fr this one. They don't look like them =S
I guess they look fine if they are some random chars...? The red salamander in this greenie thing is another thing that makes me go crazy. Siroph should not be in Verfall... makes me want to change my story so she'll appear somewhere else =="
Do let me know any crits, I'll try to go and edit unless its urber drastic change that will lead to me commiting suicide...
yumeji 2005/7/25 - 4:20:32
So beautiful, I've been quite obsessed with dramatic lighting as of late. I suppose the only thing that seems confusing to me is the light.

It looks like there's white light being projected from an unknown source which allows the people's clothing to reflect colours other than a green-tinge [ex: blue, red]. I'm assuming this is a closed-cave with no other light source other than the flame. I'm also a bit confused why the flame goes from yellow to green instead of yellow to orange/red, but I assume this might be a "magical" flame. ^-^

Here are some samples I found on Google that might illustrate my critiques a little better:

Other than that, I really do love the image, especially the detail that went towards the cave walls.
mika-kun 2005/7/25 - 5:30:18
You certainly have a thing about lurking in dark tunnels, mind you when you can draw them this good, why not!....I totally love that salamander...:)
happywaterbottle 2005/7/25 - 10:36:19
wow this is just awesome o_o
I really like the salamander too, it's a nice touch ^^ what else can I say about this masterpiece... there's so many detail oO much more than in my most detailed drawings XD
awesome work as usual!
snoopywar 2005/7/25 - 11:7:46
I love the tree tunnel!!! Thats just hot. <:D
This scenery is awesome. I just love it!! x3
lorelai 2005/7/25 - 11:32:9
oh jeebus man, this is incredible! I LOVE IT!! GALLERY IT GOES!!
zestroy 2005/7/25 - 15:34:29
yumeji: I get what you mean. Well I was tryinig something atmospheric... so... ^^"
Lore: Thanks =) Initially I was trying to draw something to stuff in the gallery, then stuff happened and I threw it in polish. lol

Glad to know that you guys like it still ^o^
Thanks guys =)
lavalizard 2005/7/31 - 1:6:39
Oooh, it doesn't get any better than tree-tunnels. Excellent lighting and atmosphere. I like the dangly moss, and that salamander in the foreground.

starlightangel 2005/7/24 - 22:51:23
Not sure if there's any CLAMP fan(atics) like me here. ^^ Fuu from Magic Knight Rayearth... hope it's good enough for polish ^^

drawn from reference: the title page for the bonus story in the third book, the original had Umi and Hikaru in the background... but my hand hurt too much to draw any more

I wanted to draw this because the original was drawn on thick paper...and it just so happens oekaki has just the right patterns to match ... hehe I really like the tones avaliable on oekaki... ^^

C&C's welcome~
jakusama 2005/7/24 - 23:5:4
FUU *ish a diehard Rayearth Fan* Can we see the next ladies? like.. ZAGATO! Yummy... I luff her hair for some reason, and the textures rock... I love this... yay Clamp! Chobits and ANgelic Layer and Rayearth and artbooks... oh my! :D I wanna see more Clamp work!!
kodocha 2005/7/24 - 23:5:26
Very nice colors and face, but the arm scares me! Is she anorexic? Add some curves and some FAT to that arm! Pretty though.
starlightangel 2005/7/24 - 23:15:30
.__. thanks for pointing out the hand...o.O er...Fuu...went on a diet? >.>

I want to try drawing Presea or Caldina next (I need more practise before attempting zagato...drawing armors scare me >.<)
mika-kun 2005/7/25 - 5:37:42
Very soft and pretty....and some very nice usage of tones, I like the pencil sketchyness of it...:)
happywaterbottle 2005/7/25 - 10:40:25
CLAMP... their Card Captor Sakura was the reason I started to draw XD I read Magic Knight Rayearth too. my favourite was Hikaru, well, the one with the red hair there...
this is really really pretty, I like how you used the tones and the sketchy feel of the picture ^^
lorelai 2005/7/25 - 11:36:0
wonderful composition! I love the texture too, almost like it's a cross-stitch pattern! :D
mitsu 2005/7/25 - 12:59:41
Ohman the texture on that cloth slays me!! :G Gooo MKR! I have the entire first series and most of the 2nd on tape. >_>
pure 2005/7/25 - 14:31:40
Oh I love Fuu! Great job :)
phil 2005/7/27 - 23:24:8

snoopywar 2005/7/24 - 23:57:59
Her dress is really pretty. <:3
And the background is well done!! :D
mika-kun 2005/7/25 - 5:40:22
Now that's some Loligoth goodness we have here, she fits right into that background as well...cool..:)
lorelai 2005/7/25 - 11:35:7

I did this in between commercials and a lengthy phone conversation ^o^;;. (In other words, the timer is very much inaccurate)
zestroy 2005/7/23 - 8:11:3
sketch corner... did you post in the wrong room or..?
snoopywar 2005/7/23 - 10:19:46
Wow. I love the background!! <:D
And his hair. x3
heavenlystrike 2005/7/23 - 12:5:27
but but but its beautiful ;_; *dies*
lorelai 2005/7/23 - 12:41:21
Wow this is beautiful! This has to go somewhere other than sketch corner! I love the canvas/painterly feeling to it.
weaselyperson 2005/7/23 - 14:7:21
Wow, amazing! The background's so awesome :3 and I really like how you did the coloring!
mitsu 2005/7/23 - 22:42:56
Soft and pretty and painty. :3 In a word, lovely.
mika-kun 2005/7/30 - 6:46:0
This could certainly pass for a scan of a watercolour....and you originally posted it where?! are you mad?!!!
yumeji 2005/8/8 - 18:54:54
I must concur, it certainly has that watercolour canvas quality. You've even managed to incorporate the texture of a canvas with the miniature white speckles across the image. Slightly curious how you achieved this effect. @//@

arg.. my hand hurts so much. My first lineless picture, inspired a bit by a manga I was reading today.
(timers's a bit off... take off about 1h)

C&C please~

tayley-chan 2005/7/21 - 13:4:35
linelessness is tricky busines *nods* but this is a lovely first go at it to be sure.

I particularly enjoy the soft gradient of her dress. I'm a sucker for soft gradients.

It all looks really good, the only thing I would suggest is perhaps putting a touch more time into smoothing off the edges for a slightly sharper image.
phil 2005/7/21 - 13:47:13
i like it a lot especially the hair only suggestion i can make is maybe a few more folds n creasers in the skirt and shirt:)) ps the greens work so well to gether
lorelai 2005/7/24 - 12:30:34
Lineless work is so hard!! I can't stand doing it, hahaha :) You did a great job, so much detail and such a nice simple background to complement it too. All in all wonderful composition. ^^ your signature looks a little like mine!! heehee!
