Random collage doodle :) Yeah, I suck on realism xD But i like the contrasts here :)
mika 2006/12/1 - 10:2:28
Yeah yeah yeah....it totally sucks and I don't get spam in my E-mail box about the size of my wedding tackle.
Ok --moving on to the real world-- the only thing that stops the main face from being almost photo-realistic is about 20-25 mins of adding some hard detailing, the shading and blocking in is more than enough to build a realistic face on, and even then your non-realistic pics are always well worth seeing so keep 'em coming...:)
~and as for my E-mail........how do they know?
golden 2006/12/1 - 13:36:30
Yay! This is so you. Especially the orangy-red background color. And the speechbubble of course ^^
clua 2006/12/1 - 14:57:23
sooo nice!
lol--that face down there--i like the xpresion-
twinkledraak 2006/12/5 - 11:8:52

I haven't done an Oekaki in aaaages! Hey everyone!

This is a random doodle of the lovely Tifa Lockheart from FFVII Advent Children (yay for Square Enix for making her look so cool). I couldn't really think of anything to do with her, so I decided that she would be waiting for a call from Cloud. I got a bit lazy too and couldn't draw Seventh Heaven in the background Oo;;

I'm not too pleased with this drawing so I'm not putting it in the polished room, it really doesn't deserve to be there.

C&C welcome! Ja ne xxx
cinder303 2006/11/26 - 15:8:5
I like the textures you put into her hair.
twinkledraak 2006/11/27 - 9:35:24
She really looks cute :)! The hair is pretty :)!
dorothyblueeyes 2006/11/30 - 9:46:33
It is very clean and polished, nice.
mika 2006/12/1 - 10:22:8
That's some pretty kick-ass hi-lighting on the hair there, actually the whole pic oozes niceness, my only C+C would be the perspective on the arm holding the phone...it should still taper down to the wrist somewhat and the hand looks a little big (it's as if the F.O.V (Field of View) is set miles away which would affect the whole pic).........but hell yeah keep 'em coming....:)
darkshines 2006/12/1 - 14:29:42
Thanks for the comments everyone ^^

Mika - I must admit I got a bit lazy and impatient with the perspective on the hand Oo;;; Thanks for the pointers, I'm gonna be less lazy nest time! ^^
clua 2006/12/1 - 15:6:25
the hair of tifa looks great!!!
sob i wish i could paint the hair like that!
remi-187 2006/12/5 - 13:34:47
i took the liberty of helping you, and actually applying what mika said about the perspective.
there's nothing to be lazy about, your problem is that according to the hand with the cellphone - the perspective is different , it's half an extreme close up, and half a regular eye level drawing (i.e your'e sitting in front of her). i changed it in MSpaint, to show you what i mean, you should either adjust the perspective to option A or to option B, and if you notice you'll see what an important role the cup plays in both parts.
hope i helped, my contribution.

cinder303 2006/11/24 - 15:17:24
I like the way you did the flowers and the necklace... They really help to complete the oekaki.
dorothyblueeyes 2006/11/30 - 9:48:17
Yes, very cute colorful fairy. nice.
mika 2006/12/1 - 10:30:44

I love the details you put into the eyes... They're very cat-like indeed! The background is very fitting.
twinkledraak 2006/11/24 - 6:33:47
he really looks cute :3 ! I love how you drew those details like the lighting in the hair and his eyes damn there beautifull :)!
snoopywar 2006/11/24 - 11:28:44

snoopywar 2006/11/24 - 11:29:33
What is that next to her...? A doll? o.o
Very cute~!
dorothyblueeyes 2006/11/30 - 9:50:24
You have the most darling, pretty style; very very nice.
mika 2006/12/1 - 10:49:50
She would fit nicely under an 'extremely cute' tag.......however the orange thing next to her is scary on so many levels.......;P
clua 2006/12/1 - 14:55:58

elolinon 2006/12/3 - 7:7:34
Your style is awesome! I love the eyes and the colouring in her face. What kinda creature is the orange thing? xD Cute, though

dark-angel 2006/11/16 - 14:28:31
I couldn't get her face to look right no matter what I tried. Any suggestions?
cinder303 2006/11/16 - 17:20:54
I don't see much wrong with it at all... Truthfully, I really like the shading and textures in this :)
keyblademaster 2006/11/16 - 17:29:11
the hair......the bg......the awesomeness (is that a word?) of this picture! It looks really good!
sankyu 2006/11/16 - 23:24:18
If you really want a critic, I woud say that the jaw should be further back, so that theres a smooth curve from the forhead to the point of the chin (except for the nose and lips)
sabii 2006/11/17 - 5:29:25
all your problem really is it that you've drawn to much of her eye. here's a randomn image to help you to see what i mean [link] c:
dark-angel 2006/11/17 - 9:27:36
thanks and I will fiddle with it by trying out your sugestions.
dark-angel 2006/11/17 - 11:37:52
there, I hope I didn't make it look worse. C&C welcome.
mika 2006/11/21 - 9:33:7
Argh! the anims messed up so I can't see how it looked before the changes.......so I'll base tips on the pic shown:- The actual face (minus the nose) from the eyebrow line to the chin is a smidge too flat, get a profile from the net and look at all the ridges and hollows....they may appear slight but they make quite a difference if you include them, try concentrating on building the face profile before adding the nose ........if you want to veer towards realism then definately start with the shadows and hi-lights before even attempting to add detail and features .....when it looks 3d then add the rest...;)
......but even so this pic is far from bad and you have certainly made no glaring errors and with practice and observation you'll be banging out great faces in no time at all...:)
dorothyblueeyes 2006/11/21 - 9:49:28
Pretty nice, though, I really like all the textures too. Very nice look.
twinkledraak 2006/11/24 - 6:37:31
She looks pretty :)! The clouds are pretty on the bg :)!

keyblademaster 2006/11/16 - 17:29:39
Must have been frustrating to keep redoing the lineart.

Somehow my pics never turn out as I planned either.........oh wait that's because I actually never plan them....:P
dorothyblueeyes 2006/11/21 - 9:51:32
Yes,I really like the effect overall. I have trouble with painting too.Hard to get used to, hehe

I had to redo the lineart twice because I kept having problems with copy and paste. @_@ But I'm happy with how it turned out. Haven't been on this board for a while so howdy doody, everyone~
mika 2006/11/12 - 22:9:44
Hiya there, yep it's been awhile....but you got around to dropping by, that's the important thing....
She sure looks big, bold and brassy, I imagine her voice is far bigger than the huge mike she's singing into......great work, looking foreward to seeing some more from you....'cos you are trapped here now!...;P
elusive_dreamer 2006/11/12 - 23:8:27
Thank you for the warm rewelcoming. :3 I felt artistically constipated because I haven't been able to do anything for a while because I never have time between school and work /explains life story etc/.

In any case, I really enjoy this board. It's probably the nicest one I've ever been to. I love how everyone is trying a new style every time I stop by; it's really inspiring. Everyone's so friendly too, so I really appreciate it. ^^
xhewasnt--x 2006/11/13 - 9:22:23
I /love/ her lips more than anything.
twinkledraak 2006/11/16 - 13:21:7
pretty :)! I love it :)!
dorothyblueeyes 2006/11/21 - 9:53:32
Great painting. And you really caught her belting a tune, well.
snoopywar 2006/11/24 - 11:30:25
That is really quite gorgeous.
Looks like she's putting her all into her singing! :)

WOW, the textures are truly amazing. I don't understand how you've blended realism with non-realism (huh?) and making it look this good. I can just stare at this pic for hours.
dorothyblueeyes 2006/11/21 - 9:56:22
Owww, this is amazing; wonderful, yes, me too, I could stare at this for hours, too. Gee, you used textures for this?? God, it looks photographic.

I'm limited:
Just look at me - I'm limited
And just look at you -
You can do all I couldn't do, Glinda
So now it's up to you
For both of us
Now it's up to you:
I've heard it said
That people come into our lives for a reason
Bringing something we must learn
And we are led
To those who help us most to grow
If we let them
And we help them in return
Well, I don't know if I believe that's true
But I know I'm who I am today
Because I knew you:
Like a comet pulled from orbit
As it passes a sun
Like a stream that meets a boulder
Halfway through the wood
Who can say if I've been changed for the better?
But because I knew you
I have been changed for good
It well may be
That we will never meet again
In this lifetime
So let me say before we part
So much of me
Is made of what I learned from you
You'll be with me
Like a handprint on my heart
And now whatever way our stories end
I know you have re-written mine
By being my friend:
Like a ship blown from its mooring
By a wind off the sea
Like a seed dropped by a skybird
In a distant wood
Who can say if I've been changed for the better?
But because I knew you
Because I knew you
I have been changed for good
And just to clear the air
I ask forgiveness
For the things I've done you blame me for
But then, I guess we know
There's blame to share
And none of it seems to matter anymore
Like a comet pulled Like a ship blown
From orbit as it Off it's mooring
Passes a sun, like By a wind off the
A stream that meets Sea, like a seed
A boulder, half-way Dropped by a
Through the wood Bird in the wood
Who can say if I've been changed for the better?
I do believe I have been changed for the better?
And because I knew you:
Because I knew you:
Because I knew you:
I have been changed for good.
