Whew! ^_^ Actually, now that I look at it I wish I chould adjust her closest shoulder, to make it look wider... I meant for the hair to just be covering some of it, but it's so rounded it looks like she just has a small shoulder. *sniff* Oh well, I like it otherwise. *laugh*
kaiomi 2004/12/12 - 21:2:0
ack...it's so nice! I like everything about this. Her hair has so much depth to it as well as her face. Awesome realism!
raspberryjam 2004/12/12 - 22:4:38
heh, my name on the first Oekaki bbs I drew on was xxblackrosexx. this pic is really good.
shadrad 2004/12/12 - 22:9:30
You draw awsome realism...more than can be said for some of us (*cough ME cough*). Also love her ears, 'cause multiple piercings ROCK! XD
jellybean 2004/12/13 - 9:24:13
i adore your style! its so painty yet very realistic! you've defined her features very, very well! its so flowy and i lurve it!!!
angie 2004/12/13 - 17:41:34
well she's really pretty despite the small shoulder, she makes me think of one of my own characters, I love her blue hair and the way you shaded, it's so realistic loooking it's amazing!
mika-kun 2004/12/14 - 15:28:31
This could pass easily as an oil painting...very well done....:)
raspberryjam 2004/12/17 - 18:22:54
ya angie it reminded me of that "umeko" pic on your site.
patrickm 2004/12/24 - 0:4:6
It's really good Melanie! I wish I could draw half as well as you. :-)

padalyn 2004/12/12 - 15:6:37

blackrose 2004/12/13 - 0:18:18
Ooh, makes me want to get a green sweater. ^_^ Ice skating is great fun, no? I love the softness of everything, very pretty!
milkshake 2004/12/14 - 14:43:29
looks fun, and yes, you've gotta have the green sweater! good job, your shading is definitely getting better :)
mika-kun 2004/12/14 - 15:26:33
You seem to be improving in leaps and bounds...I'm definately going to have to keep my eye on you....gorgeous girl.....what's her phone number?...;)
donteatyellowsnow 2004/12/14 - 22:13:57

jellybean 2004/12/12 - 11:55:42

padalyn 2004/12/12 - 15:7:2
haha this is great, love all the colours and shading!
blackrose 2004/12/12 - 20:21:23
Oh gosh, we spent soo long in my history class on the 50s consumer culture, and this really could be straight from an ad from that period! I love the concept, and your shading is great!
mika-kun 2004/12/14 - 15:17:34
I love the idea....and it's beautifully done....:)
troubled_youth 2004/12/15 - 22:14:5
yum, cynicism >P
embo 2004/12/19 - 16:25:15
hehehe, this is such an old school type ad. makes me think of campbell's soup or something.

very nice and clean coloring. simple, yet intriguing. nice job SHAKE. :O

I cant believe I only spent an hour and 35 minutes on this! It felt like 3 hours...lol. Anyway, about the picture, this is the most effort Ive EVER put into an oekaki...I actually shaded and stuff! WHOO! Sorry, a little over-excited...dont ask where the idea came from, I have no clue.
blackrose 2004/12/12 - 20:26:7
She has such a cute expression! =3 This may seem like a weird thing to like, but I think her nose is cool, it's got a more realistic shape but in an anime face. I like~!
mika-kun 2004/12/14 - 15:10:37
Looks good....the extra time you put in paid off for sure...:)
donteatyellowsnow 2004/12/14 - 22:19:35

*laugh* I was wondering whether I should send this to the doodle room--I came a minute and a half under an hour. XP Anyways, I did use a reference picture, but I don't have the URL. I drew this looking at a picture of Fionna Apple, but I took much artistic liscence. And no, she does NOT have a Micheal Jackson nose IRL. XP Oops. ^_^
jellybean 2004/12/8 - 23:39:45
omg, that is so gorgeous! i love the painty-ness! wow, its all so pretty! i...
i cant really talk right now its so...gorgeous!! wow
wow...ok im done haha
great job!
pure 2004/12/9 - 14:57:56
This looks like styled realism, verrryyy good. ^_^ I hope to see more of your art in the future, its very eye pleasing.
mika-kun 2004/12/9 - 19:6:5
That's really good, the almost realistic yet painterly quality looks so effective..the colours are well chosen too...:)
gleeful1 2004/12/11 - 17:31:29
this is SO cool *_* the lips are beautious and the shading (esp on the nose) is fantastic!! awesome job - painterly pictures are the best, no? ^_~
milkshake 2004/12/12 - 11:39:35
Wow, this is great! Really like the style and lighting.
patrickm 2004/12/24 - 0:4:46
Man, that's such a good painting!! You are so good.
anjiira 2004/12/24 - 23:47:48
I like how you put detail into her face and the front part of her hair and let the rest fade out. Such a good effect!
The reddish colour scheme is very good tooo..!

I'm sorry if its under the limit..if it doesn't belong here you can move it to the doodle room. ^^;;

Question: Who is this character? I know shes in a videogame..but..er..I don't know her name or what game she's from. And Ive known about her for 4 years..x.x;; can anyone help me?
golden_ataris 2004/12/8 - 9:25:5
Nice job!

It reminds me a lot of Katt from Breath of Fire 2!
blackrose 2004/12/8 - 23:55:26
No idea who it is, but she's very cute! ^_^ I like how soft she is, great job!
mika-kun 2004/12/9 - 19:3:47
...she looks familiar...but I have no idea where from...:(...cool pic though, If I remember her I'll be sure to let you know...;)
pure 2004/12/10 - 17:7:53
Thankyou mika ^^. Also, I dont think its Katt, this character wears a tad bit more clothing xD and its green.
jellybean 2004/12/13 - 9:59:28
wow, such clean lines! good job! i love the earrings *steals* mwahahaha

wow, such pretty colouring, I especially like the stripes :)
blackrose 2004/12/8 - 23:8:50
Hey, that's an awesome character design! I lurve her hair, too. =3
remi-187 2004/12/14 - 4:44:33
nice, its simple and looks neat and clean yet has some details. i like it!

a few tips as an observer:
pants and hands need more assertive shadig, and your knee needs more work on the curve.
donteatyellowsnow 2004/12/14 - 22:22:58
wow. *saves*
