"Cute and Cuddly"

The reason the timer is way up there on this one is because I kept taking screencaps of it...thought about using this for my tutorial on colors-how to use them for more than fillers (shading with other colors, using color to warm or cool off a space, etc...) but I might not--solids aren't the best way to explain such things. This was fun to do, though-hope you enjoy it.

Haven't used all solids in AGES...aieeeee
maggie_sue 2005/6/19 - 23:51:49
well, crap..I found something I left out..hopefully you can't tell....*angry fist*
dolly 2005/6/20 - 8:50:29
i love the warmth of this I just feel like sleeping right now...
lorelai 2005/6/20 - 11:12:54
I love the warmth, the composition and the point of view of this picture <3
demo-demo 2005/6/20 - 12:26:22
so beautiful. and very warm, which makes this michigan girl very happy. and she's so cute!
mika-kun 2005/6/20 - 12:28:55
And of course mentioning a bit was missed has us all looking for it.....and I've found it!....:)
And yes extremely cute and cuddly, great style, great colours and excellent P.O.V, lovely!....:)
kurementsu 2005/6/20 - 13:9:37
i found it too XD
mitsu 2005/6/20 - 17:31:27
Cute and cuddly indeed! And might I add warm and calming, too? Absolutely stunning colors here. Glad you're doing a tutorial on that. :D This is sooo snuggling up in bed on a summer morning...mmmm!
emerald 2005/6/20 - 18:20:36
Me too. Great job. I <3 the coulours and design. Its like, a visual lullaby.
jakusama 2005/6/20 - 19:34:38
this is so very cool. And I dont feel so bad about making mistakes now... even the gods and goddesses of TACo do it. Woo! But it makes me want to go curl up by a window and sleep... I love it...
maggie_sue 2005/6/20 - 23:41:18
it wasn't so much a mistake that just looks horrible, just a small thing I overlooked when I colored.
charsiewpau 2005/6/21 - 4:26:52
It's so beautiful, I have to look for my jaw on the floor somewhere.. I seem to have dropped it.
bananarana 2005/6/21 - 6:14:32
:o Is it the-mmph! ::gets hit with a brick::
It's not glaringinly obvious. And you can even fix it in MS Paint if you really wanted to.
A tutorial on using warm and cool colors for shading, eh? Sounds like a good idea; I know many people just shade/highlight using a darker/lighter version of the current color (something I'm most guilty of, unfortunately).
You do well with solids; so bold and refreshing compared to paintbrush (not that paintbrush is bad or anything... um... I'm collecting an angry mob, aren't I?). Great job.
rt_emily_nguyen 2005/6/21 - 17:48:59
nice perspective!
snoopywar 2005/6/21 - 19:19:51
If only I had a window by my bed that would let the sun hit me in the morning like that.... :)
I love the style of sketchy coloring. And the perspective, of course, is amazing. :3

dolly 2005/6/18 - 22:12:11
I love the colours! Neat! >^.^<
lorelai 2005/6/18 - 22:56:13
Oooh she is secksi. :)
emerald 2005/6/18 - 23:14:1
5 minutes off.
maggie_sue 2005/6/19 - 0:6:56
emz, that's up to the mods to decide, love. I love the colors on this, the warm pinks and her warm skintones do very well against the cool blue background...and yesh, she is a looker :D
emerald 2005/6/19 - 2:11:7
No need to be huffy Maggie-Chan. I'm just saying.
mika-kun 2005/6/19 - 3:17:15
......Although a shade under the hour we can let this stay, it shows a lot of effort was put into it and Angie doesn't have an habit of breaking rules....good to see you back Angie!
Aaaaaaw! Maggie-sue isn't huffy at all, she's cute and cuddly....*hugs*....:)
maggie_sue 2005/6/19 - 11:25:4
meh, huffy is for kids, like stamping your foot down when you don't get your way...or something. Lol, thanks mika for the "cute and cuddly."
z1ggy 2005/6/19 - 13:28:48
I love her jaggedy boldness :D Very sexy indeed :D
bananarana 2005/6/21 - 6:18:40
Taurus! It's Taurus! ::jumps up and down:: Taurus is January...? Yes?
Once you're finished with them all, you should put 'em all together in one picture. Then sell it to a magazine who will commission you to draw their pictures! And then you'll be infamous on these TACo boards because we'll all know you as "Angie the oekaki artist whose work is featured in ___ Magazine!" And yes, I'll hush up now. X3;
happywaterbottle 2005/6/21 - 13:14:10
lol no, Taurus is April/may
the face is really well done, I like the shading ^^ she really reminds me of Aurore Blackcat's Taurus pic...
angie 2005/6/21 - 17:18:20
I actually copied the angle of her face from a magazine I found on my bedroom floor
rt_emily_nguyen 2005/6/21 - 17:49:31
she looks hot! great job on the hair strands!
surreal 2005/6/21 - 18:31:13
I absolutely love her hair. <3
silentlyscreaminginside 2005/6/28 - 19:21:18
I love the colour of her hair it's really pretty! Great job! Keep up the good work

mitsu 2005/6/18 - 19:28:14
Not entirely pleased with this, but at least I finished. Took a few days, since I've been playing PSOBB... a lot. >_> Was intending on using this picture to make a tutorial, so I took lots of screencaps, but I'm not sure if I will anymore 'cause it's so uninspirational. :p
cretin 2005/6/18 - 19:36:34
Well, I like it. The coloring is pretty cool, and I like the color scheme, too. Great work!
shadrad 2005/6/18 - 19:38:22
*jaw drop* Uhhhh....OMG that is like......*jaw drops further* Damn this is great!!!! She's smokin'.....O-O
happywaterbottle 2005/6/18 - 19:46:1
ooh please keep this one as a tutorial! I wanna know how you color that way! This is very inspiring! stop putting yourself down seriously >:(
I really like the colors and the smooth coloring. I...I love her hair o.o
you're too awesome. acknowledge this :)
jakusama 2005/6/18 - 20:11:33
*has been downloading PSOBB all day* >> You know, with your godlike skills, you should whip out some PSO characters, like a Fomarl.. or Hunewearl. Those would look so wicked in your style..
lorelai 2005/6/18 - 21:56:8
be quiet mitsu and let's see the tutorial XO i would give my right arm to know how you did this.
dolly 2005/6/18 - 22:14:7
That is really amazing!!!
p_b 2005/6/18 - 22:24:34
oh i think it's lovely, but it hink everythign you do is lovely x__X. the folds in the cloth area amazing and her hair is SO elegant and detailed. Her outfit is sort of a cross between a spanish queen and a gypsy, it's a really cool design :) I've made you my next becnhmark i'll be as good as you soon i'm determined >=(.
naty 2005/6/18 - 22:33:54
HOLY CRAP THAT ANIMATION WAS DAZZLING *__*!!! *envy times a million*
Jebus Mitsu, everything is just so perfect ;_;!!
kelli 2005/6/19 - 0:7:35
how can you say this is uninspirational? Everything about this is inspiring!!!
kelli 2005/6/19 - 0:9:3
oh, I forgot to add: WHY ISN'T THIS IN POLISHED?!!? =D
mika-kun 2005/6/19 - 1:17:52
Hehehe, every tutorial I have drawn and written so far has gone in the bin because I don't think it's good enough......and I'm lousy at explaining stuff.
But......I'd say this is a masterpiece and seeing how you did it would be awesome!
spazzyzombie 2005/6/19 - 12:13:3
ooers! i like how you did the shading in this picture and it looks like you payed xtra close attention to detail. it's lovely
z1ggy 2005/6/19 - 12:44:19
Yeah go and give us a tut for this one :) She is pretty amazing. I love the way you deal with lighting :D
emerald 2005/6/19 - 21:8:31
Someone-Move this-to the polished room....NOW!
maggie_sue 2005/6/20 - 0:1:2
yeah, I feel ya....this tutorial thing can be tough--I don't like mine much at all-I might just switch to old-fashioned dry media-but that would defeat the whole purpose of oekaki tutorial 0_o
lorelai 2005/6/20 - 11:19:25
Methinks Mitsu isn't allowed to use the Doodle Room anymore >;3
maggie_sue 2005/6/20 - 12:49:11
agreed--she's far to good at "doodling"
bananarana 2005/6/21 - 6:22:46
I love the colors in this. That green shawl is just so appealing.
Very nicely done; I could rave on and on about your drawings, but I'll probably get repetitive and annoy you to death, haha.
rt_emily_nguyen 2005/6/21 - 17:50:34
whoa! this looks totally realistic! and you did this with all solids too! Oooo i'm so jealous X3
irkyturkey 2005/7/13 - 9:35:28

lorelai 2005/6/17 - 0:16:21

Rawr, super duper! Such a convincing metal texture. ^o^ Great pose, too.
mika-kun 2005/6/19 - 1:45:44

lorelai 2005/6/17 - 0:15:25
Ooooh what a beautiful picture!! I especially love her smile. Her whole face/body is smiling, not just her lips - it looks so cheerful and genuine. I hope to see more!
jambeakka 2005/6/17 - 4:47:16
Cuute^^ Love your style, and the compostition.. this is just too cute~~
artanis 2005/6/18 - 15:31:35

wow you get so much better every time :)
that eye is beutiful, it makes her look very magical (as an elf /should/ be ^_^)
but i have a sugestion. Since the hair takes up the majority of the picture why not try making it more interesting instead of one big block of color? like show different chunks of hair by adding more highlights and shadows in long steaks?
artanis 2005/6/18 - 15:32:55
I love that eye too, the colors are gorgeous~ it seems to be iridescent ^_^ I agree with p__b though, some variation in the hair would be nice ^_^

mika-kun 2005/6/13 - 0:57:21
Aw...that's sad...sure is!, but hella cool too, I think she could do with a 'hug' about now....*hugs*
p_b 2005/6/13 - 13:46:54
i like the way you colored the hair and skin alot! and all the loose pieces of hair fall nicely :)
but the wings, to me, look like they should be lower, or come down at a sharper angle ; one of the two.
lorelai 2005/6/13 - 19:52:10
Wow wow WOW this is really awesome :O
emerald 2005/6/15 - 20:5:35
Sorry, little bit of a crit....Unless her hair is poofy, her head looks too tall... Other than that, great picture. I <3 luff it!
surreal 2005/6/17 - 7:12:57
Thank you all for the wonderful comments .. and, yes, I've realized her head is poofy. ._.; So, I'll remember not to do that next time! :D Thank you! <33
artanis 2005/6/18 - 15:38:29
aw, beautiful @___@ Her expression is so delicate and sad, and the wings look so nice and soft... my favorite part has to be those glowing lights in the background ^_^
