mika-kun 2005/7/16 - 7:24:34
Hey, that rainbow hair is awesome, I like the stripey vest/T-shirt thing.....*has a thing for stripes*....you definately gotta draw her in full sometime.....:D

snoopywar 2005/7/16 - 10:8:50

Please draw her again in full view!! D:
I wanna see her socks and lime green boots! xP
lorelai 2005/7/16 - 12:17:37
I love it! my only crit is that the foreground is much more polished than the background. XD
heavenlystrike 2005/7/16 - 12:42:35
i know lore, D:. I couldn't think of a bg...next time i'll do better :)
mitsu 2005/7/18 - 2:8:2
Oooh, really liking the contrast between the vibrant figure and grey background... 's a good effect! :D And now I wish I had rainbow-tipped hair. Scruptious!
luck 2005/7/19 - 7:54:49

So sorry for the lazy background ;___;! I ran out of ideas again >_<;;
snoopywar 2005/7/15 - 22:28:59
Those folds are so great! ;___;
And his eyes are so nice. And his wing... I like the way you did the wing. Dx
tarren 2005/7/15 - 22:53:17
XD You need a WARNING: May cause nosebleeds or excessive drooling sign on this! xD I <3 how you colour x3~~

*drowns in drool*
heavenlystrike 2005/7/15 - 23:40:58
but this is gorgEOUS. it should be in the gallery! that wing. omg for heaven's sake it iS exquisiTe <3 i love the delicateness of this...wonderful piece.
lorelai 2005/7/16 - 12:13:15
Me agrees this belongs in the gallery >:3
irkyturkey 2005/7/17 - 13:47:9
what a gorgeous angel, i love how you made the wing, so soft, its all great!!
mika-kun 2005/7/30 - 7:7:14
I think the main pic more than makes up for the background....actually I'm kind of glad the bg is simple, it doesn't detract from the main pic.....and a big wow! on the shading of that top....

Amazing, I actually had the time and patience to draw this one. The dragon rider picture inspired me. :D
kappy 2005/7/14 - 21:3:52
Oh, no! >_< I didn't blend in the shading on the tail! sldkfjsadf
snoopywar 2005/7/14 - 22:33:23
Awesome dragon! :D
Dragons are cool. :3
remi-187 2005/7/15 - 7:4:55

happywaterbottle 2005/7/15 - 11:15:20

bla bla *funny commentary* blah blah..
I hate drawing with a mouse!!!
lorelai 2005/7/13 - 12:4:55
Holy creaking frap, that's mouse work? That's incredible!!!
happywaterbottle 2005/7/13 - 12:53:22
hehe well I don't like drawing with a tablet :) *pets mouse*
this is really good o.o I love her hair, it's so smooth o.o
snoopywar 2005/7/13 - 13:13:1
I agree with HappyWaterBottle. Her hair looks so smooth!! D:
Great smoothness. x3
senobdec 2005/7/13 - 13:55:57
Ooh, that shirt is very nice. And c'mon, enjoy the mouse while you can :D.
kinako 2005/7/13 - 15:35:39
Wooow, her hair is wonderful :) And I love the shirt and it's wrinkles and shading... It has such texture! And I must say that her eyes are quite captivating :D Beautiful!
char 2005/7/14 - 0:58:5
Very nice! I love the oil paint style of the strappy number, and the eyes are too funky!
p_b 2005/7/14 - 3:20:50
i like my tablet it's quicker but sometimes if i'm really tired i'll end up drawing with my mouse mid way through the pic and not even relise till i try to right click (my mouse only has one button) but this is great for someone who doesn't normaly use a mouse the tank top is especialy teh win :) the wrinkles are so cool
remi-187 2005/7/15 - 6:45:38
Thanks for all the comments, i think i win at this drawing because it's the best one i did so far ever on oekaki, and with a mouse..
but my hand broke after drawing for such a long time.
If i need 10 hours to create this kind of drawing, i don't wanna know how much time i have to spend to create a better one for the larger caliber rooms. <_<
mika-kun 2005/7/16 - 7:31:41
Hell dude....I wish I had the patience to draw this with a mouse...very nice indeed....:D
irkyturkey 2005/7/16 - 7:53:29
she is very beautiful, it was totally worth breaking your hand over lol but we still want to see more from you!! :D
lorelai 2005/7/16 - 12:18:28
You win? you WIN? hell man, you PWNT that mouse and lay it on the table and took names. :O
remi-187 2005/7/16 - 18:50:17
I remembered something, i said i'd get better, and i did!
from that:
to this..
yumeji 2005/7/18 - 5:4:42
Mouse? Whoo-sheez that brings back memories.
Don't you love it when your wrist begins to feel like red fire ants constructing a Chucky-Cheese between your carpals?

Nonetheless, beautiful job on the tank top.

It's summer, so it's hot. But looking at this picture makes me cold, but it's really hot...do you know how weird that feels?!? O_O Anyway, hello again! I've been very dead, and will continue to be that way for a while. I still lurk though, and I see that there are lots of new artists at TACo! So hello to all of you! This is Soubi from Loveless, I love that anime...I know the hair looks kinda out of place, but I wasn't about to do it over again x_x oh yeah, this is a guy.
happywaterbottle 2005/7/12 - 23:26:45

neko_lee 2005/7/13 - 5:11:15

Very nice and cool background too! Really like the grids behind the picture.
And, Hi Kiwi~! *wave wave* =^-^=
snoopywar 2005/7/13 - 6:39:56
I like his robe thing. :D
The misty cloudy effect is hot too. ;3
And his hair looks awfully nice to me.
irkyturkey 2005/7/13 - 9:24:15

heavenlystrike 2005/7/13 - 11:26:55

kaiomi 2005/7/13 - 13:29:17
the blueness of the wings are incredible ^_^ I just love his purple fluffy thing!! *cuddles* Aww he looks just adorable in this position Kiwi!
z1ggy 2005/7/13 - 14:25:33
Butterfly bishies are so cuute! *glomps* Were the wings your idea? Hehee, it's obvious he's a guy, you didn't need to point it out :)

snoopywar 2005/7/12 - 14:58:33
That is one amazingly great fish tail!! Its huge!! I just love it. :D
I like the way her hair is being blown back too, really gives her the look of being near the ocean. And those waves are just so realistic! x3
senobdec 2005/7/12 - 17:13:18
We missed you. Congrats!
kiwi 2005/7/12 - 23:18:56
Oh lord, this is just amazing! Those scales, her whole fin, actually, wouldn't driven me insane! The pose looks great, although her fin looks like it should be a little wider around where it starts, it looks a little too thin at the moment, but this still looks very awesome! O_O There's so much detail...and those waves are just perfect! o_o So very prettiful, it's good to see some of your stuff again!
neko_lee 2005/7/13 - 11:33:40
Absolutely Gorgeous! Especially like the fin and the gold parts of the treasure chest =D
kaiomi 2005/7/13 - 13:17:41
Oh gosh the colors are amazing...the tail...O_O and her hair...this deservedly belongs in the gallery! I still can't stop staring at her tail...
z1ggy 2005/7/13 - 14:17:24
It looks like she is bejewelled all over her tail ^^ This is so lovely!!
mitsu 2005/7/16 - 2:19:34
zOMG details = brain explodes :O The end of that tail is the coolest thing! :DDD

A tutorial from Jerry Yarnell's book~! Aim to learn how to paint mountain, clouds and use of negative spaces X_X
My first piece in the Polished Room, hopefully it's good enough =P
C&C appreciated! =^-^=
snoopywar 2005/7/12 - 10:29:20
WOW! o____O
::is blown away::
That mountain looks awesome!!!! :D
z1ggy 2005/7/12 - 11:3:27
This just exudes awesomeness ^^ So many details *_* Very handsomely painted!
happywaterbottle 2005/7/12 - 12:7:34

lorelai 2005/7/12 - 12:9:48
heavenlystrike 2005/7/12 - 12:53:36

lorelai 2005/7/12 - 13:34:15
I agree. I don't see too many pictures from you just yet, Neko_lee, but I certainly look forward to many many MORE! Welcome to The Gallery. [link]
neko_lee 2005/7/12 - 16:13:46
WAH! Got such a shock when Zes told me that the picture got moved.
Thanks Everybody~! *^_^*
kiwi 2005/7/12 - 23:21:21
O_O ...I swear, I'm looking at a photograph! Just...wow! some much detail! You can see the ridges on the mountain...the branches on the trees even! You crazy person you! And the eagle! There's too much to point out all of the amazing things in this pic! I especially like how the sky's colours reflect off of the snow on the mountain. Very nicely done!!! *worships*
irkyturkey 2005/7/13 - 9:27:42
whoa!!! this is greatness!!! i love the tree in the corner and the bird looks very detailed and realistic, this is an awesome picture!
kinako 2005/7/13 - 15:38:15
oh WOW. This is just beautiful! The trees.. the eagle.. the MOUNTAIN.. Wow! Evern your signature is pretty! XD This is just so wonderful in so many ways :)
mitsu 2005/7/16 - 2:22:45

Omgz, that was a headache. It was actually easier working with a large canvas, since I usually use the default size. I really like this one, probably my best, actually. I'm really not that happy with the hair, but oh well. Also, the hand... well, I just don't like hands. C&C would be very appreciated, anatomy-wise, or anything. :3
happywaterbottle 2005/7/11 - 21:0:27
this is very nice :D I like the coloring and her face, it's really well done!
her outfit is kewl, but I would never wear something like that :x
hehe, awesome job ^^
snoopywar 2005/7/11 - 23:51:7
Her hair is cool. :D
Reminds me of feathers. :3
blumeaniandglove 2005/7/12 - 3:6:6
I have a C+C for ya (on anatomy.) It's so pretty, but the hips and breasts look too big for the size her waist is. Just saying ._.''

But she's beautiful. I love how you shaded her. <3
lorelai 2005/7/12 - 13:34:58
Ooh myyy. She is secksi extreme!
char 2005/7/14 - 0:50:8
Cool shiny skin tones and er, nice revealing outfit going on here! @_@; She's got nice hair and lips.
p_b 2005/7/14 - 3:36:15
she has very pleasantly plump hip and breasts ;) your style's really cute
i would sugest not shading SO smothly...or rather add a bit more detail and intrest with wrinkles in the clothes and seems and things. Also try more contrast in your skin tones especially around the neck and collar bone area *nodnod*
mika-kun 2005/7/16 - 7:33:24
*ogles*....I've definately got the urge to do a huge wolf-whistle.....Man, she's sexy....;)
irkyturkey 2005/7/16 - 7:55:20
such great use of colours! nice and bright, her wings are awesome too!

The Dragon Rider.

hmm that could sound like a good video game title XD *cough*
see? I can do something else than playing games. This took waay too long lol, but at least I like it very much.
well well, enjoy :D
lorelai 2005/7/11 - 19:52:9
O..M..G...look at those SCALES!!!!!
snoopywar 2005/7/11 - 23:50:0
I like her braids. :3
And the shading is nice. :)
heavenlystrike 2005/7/12 - 0:21:44
your eyes must be dying with all those scales o_o. i LOVE zee outfit. it'S tres pirate-ish. loving it. you should draw her so i can see her whole outFIT. i like her position too..it looks like she's ordering bu thoughts the dragon what to do! and i love her look nya-ha-i-have-a-dragon-and-you-don't-look XD kewlnesS <3 I looove it. you always surpass yourself...im proud of you...*sNIf*
remi-187 2005/7/13 - 16:41:33
it's impossible to take a picture while riding that kind of thing!!
you break laws of physics, good thing i hate physics, nice drawing.
mika-kun 2005/7/16 - 7:36:59
There is already a game called 'Dragon rider'...pity the idea of dragon riding was way better than the game.....great pic, I hope she's holding onto something incase he does a loop the loop....:)

The time is off I think ^^;; I don't think I should have cut off his foot; it looks rather awkward >__<; (among many other things :D). Well anyways, critiques are quite welcome and very much appreciated :).

Oh and as a side-sort of question, does the 1 week to finish time limit reset every time one works on the picture?
senobdec 2005/7/11 - 0:39:23
Fantastic. That coloring is very cool. His limbs are a bit stiff though.

I really like the sky and the texture on the wall.
p_b 2005/7/11 - 2:2:18
oh wow coloring and textures are AMAZING O_O all those folds in the clothes came out so nice and the rocks look great
there are some anatomy issues though..his foot is twisting in an odd, very uncomfortable direction, and his whole arm (on both sides) is only about as long as his thigh, since you made the toroso so long the arms should be much longer too. Also the knife isn't far enough into his hand so it doesn't really look like his fingers are wraped around it.
lorelai 2005/7/11 - 2:9:39
Oh my goodness. This is really wonderful. :O I'll be moving this if you don't mind O_O
kaiomi 2005/7/11 - 2:15:12
Oh my...this definitely needed to be moved here. ^_^ I just love the coloring, especially on little things like his shoe and the texture on the wall.
snoopywar 2005/7/11 - 12:49:11
I like his shoe a lot. :D
Also the shading is quite lovely indeed. :)
Gotta love it. ;3
tarlinqua 2005/7/11 - 20:48:35
Oh dear.. that was quite unexpected... o_o;;; As flattering as it is, I'm not really sure this picture should be in this particular room ._.;

Thank you all for the critiques as well as the comments :D. I think it's about time I learned how to draw that bent leg position properly... I've made the same mistake 3x already -_-;... The stiffness of my pictures is an annoying problem I haven't been able to conquer yet either e_e;;...*meaningless self blabbering*

Thanks again :) Glad that you people like the colouring.
lorelai 2005/7/12 - 17:36:33
Tarlinqua, would you like me to move it back? Was it in the Drawing Room or Polished Room? I forget. :) Ultimately, I don't want to MOVE things to the Gallery..I want people to POST to the Gallery. That said, it is voluntary; if you'd like me to move this back somewhere, please let me know and I will do it immediately!
irkyturkey 2005/7/13 - 9:31:2
this is so soft and i love the face! great details on the wall, i think it deserves the gallery room!
