Oh great goodness... I actually dozed off while drawing this. So I didn't take exactly 2 hours plus, I assure you. Perhaps 45 minutes would be more accurate.

is this completed? If it is, it would belong to sketch room, since it is not colored :/

A picture of the very pretty, very crazy murderer who is a recurring character in my dreams.
His name is Daniel, and he's Italian.
<It's very love/hate. First, he's beautiful, but second, he's a killer. It's a push/pull, really.>
jakusama 2006/6/27 - 6:10:12
Yaaaaaay for crazy weirdo stalkers!! I was one in a dream once. It's not a recurring dream. Thank goodness. But... at least you know that by now he's not going to kill you in your dream.
happywaterbottle 2006/6/27 - 9:43:27
why must the cute guys always have a shady past eh? :/
awesome pic, I really like his hair :D
lorelai 2006/6/27 - 9:45:42
COOOOOOL. i had a crazy psycho character I made up when I was young as well. She was female, though. Perhaps they'd be a match made in heaven!

experimenting with hair ^_^
cinder303 2006/6/25 - 22:43:21
Really like how the hair goes into the head like that. Also, the eyelid is something which I could never accomplish :'( Good job! :D
treespirit 2006/6/26 - 8:33:49

lorelai 2006/6/26 - 15:22:23

phil 2006/6/25 - 15:27:9
the lighting on this one is especially nice like on his legs and back the wings are great and the colours go well wiv the backround
umi-chan 2006/6/25 - 17:24:27
pretty wings ^_^
treespirit 2006/6/26 - 8:34:55

lorelai 2006/6/26 - 15:22:43

I sorta liked the picture I did before this one better. (you know ...the bloody one) This is Quix, my made up theif. I used her in another one of my stories. I like the hair better than anything else. (but I still like the bloody one the best)
z 2006/6/25 - 10:35:28
It looks good, but you should think about putting certain things on their own layers, like the hair, so you can go over them with an eraser, and place the coloring closer to the lineart.
The sky looks good, and is in the same style has the picture, but the bricks look messy, and don't fit at all. Maybe you should have skipped on the bricks, and made the rope a different color? Maybe even added a helicopter..oooh.
Did that sound all right? I just woke up..
Short version: All in all, I like this. I think if you're going to do a great job on some things, you should spend some extra time and do a good job on all the others. I've seen your other oekakis, and you're definately improving with each one.
Keep up the good work (the short version wasn't really short, was it?)
lorelai 2006/6/25 - 10:40:20
wow, z, This isn't even my picture and I feel like thanking you for the crit! :)
keyblademaster 2006/6/25 - 11:58:54
Sure! It's just that the rectangle tool wasn't working!
phil 2006/6/25 - 15:22:42

I wasn't sure this could go in polished so I just placed it here. I also hope this isn't too bloody for TACo! Some of the blood doesn't make sense but I think it still looks...bloody. And I decided to try out different types odf shading and highlighting technics! (sp?) If you look closely, you can se on the arm a texture was used on the shading. C%C appreaciated!
blumeaniandglove 2006/6/25 - 4:45:3
Good job! :D
Okay, the shading doesn't look too bad, but i can give you a few helpful hints:
1. Pick a corner or angle where the light's coming from and use that to highlight or shadow.
2. once you've picked a style of shading for a picture, make sure you stay with it for the entire thing. So if you used watercolors for the skin, don't use solids for the clothes (unless you're going for something other then a normal picture.)
Hope these helped a little. :D
(and by the way, thank you for the comment :) )
keyblademaster 2006/6/25 - 8:11:41
acctually I used water colours for the highlights and solids for the shading.
phil 2006/6/25 - 15:26:8
by far my fave u have done so far seems u went the extra mile wiv this one
also i like blood :)
lorelai 2006/6/26 - 15:23:53
It's a good picture, but I am not a fan of seemingly unnecessary blood ;) it'd be just as good if the blood weren't there at all (and the way it is rendered doesn't quite fit in as well.)
keyblademaster 2006/6/26 - 17:47:35
lorelai 2006/6/26 - 23:47:58
lol don't apologize! you can draw it however you want! Remember, though: blood is oozy, liquidy and dark. the way you drew most of it (pixellated lines) makes it look more like she's got red threads dangling all over her instead. There's also little change in the color/brightness of the blood - it appears more like strawberry jam near her mouth instead of dried, congealed substance. ^^ just my crit!

I miss my boyfriend. He's out of town.
so i drew a picture of him getting stabbed with an umbrella!
it makes me miss him less.
keyblademaster 2006/6/24 - 18:1:21
stabbed...hmm....how cute. @_@ the expression just cracks me up!
lorelai 2006/6/25 - 10:39:3
syzygy 2006/6/27 - 1:12:44
This made my night. I don't know why, but I find it ridiculously amusing. Perhaps it's because he's saying "Mon dieu!" or just the way you drew it. Maybe it's all of the above. I couldn't tell you, but I like it.
jakusama 2006/6/29 - 5:6:17
I'm amused as well. Perhaps it is the mon deiu. I'm not sure, mais, c'est bon! ...is oekaki feminine or masculin anyway? I'm not sure...
blumeaniandglove 2006/6/29 - 18:55:3
the grand thing about it is he really makes that face. :D
he's really pretty! (prettier then me!)
dorothyblueeyes 2006/7/8 - 4:51:25
ha ha, that's great.

keyblademaster 2006/6/22 - 14:8:58
I really did work hard on this! If you look closely, you can see the highlights and shading on the face. I think I'm in need of advice. When doing cg colouring, which one is best touse for shading and highlights, watercolour 2 or the pen tool? Or something else? Oh well C&C very much appreaciated!
happywaterbottle 2006/6/22 - 18:30:18
it really depends on the coloring style you're aiming for. go with pen tool for something more solid and for something more blended, take the watercolors. You can also do some blending with the pen tool by reducing the opacity to pretty low.
anyway, great job on this, you're really improving fast! ;)

I got bored, that is the infamous "Jordan Condom" given to me by a good buddy, Jordan after she and I went to Toronto.
insomniacmg 2006/6/21 - 16:1:38
I like it. The subject is great, The art itself is well executed (Nice Hair, Good shading on the skin and the condom) I couldn't offer much CC on this due to it's excellent quality but the neck does look a tad thick and the mouth a bit large for the face. This could have gone in the polished gallery.
spoonalshmee 2006/6/21 - 17:35:21
i'm loving it.
reminds me of what's her faceee:
[link] this person's art.
which i love so yeah :D
keep it up
lorelai 2006/6/26 - 15:24:34
This is really good angie! Why isn't it in the polished room??
jakusama 2006/6/29 - 11:2:56
This whole thing rocks, I love it, the concept and the art... why ISN'T it in the Polished Room?

I love the colours
lorelai 2006/6/26 - 23:48:37
Very beautiful - love the colors and the use of pixellation here and there! :)
jakusama 2006/6/29 - 11:5:32
This is nifty, I like the body shape of it, I dunno why. Its just... nifty.
paultheodore 2006/6/29 - 13:37:35
