The timer is just ridiculously off on this one. I think total I may have spent around three hours on it. I kept getting up and taking breaks. If I didn't already have a picture saved, I would have paused and resumed.
Anyway, this is a picture of me (the fox) with my almost-boyfriend Swami (the tiger XD) on the grass in the Quad at The University of the South (mah skool). That's sortof where I first fell in love with him. He was very shy! ^_^
At any rate, I really enjoyed doing this one. I didn't know you could right click to select colors until the very end. @_@ It would have been so helpful all these times I've used oekaki... *dies*
mika-kun 2004/8/17 - 12:38:31
That's kind of an unusual style, the one on the left has a Picasso look to her, not entirely surreal but hinting at it...
The guy on the right looks odd (but good) as I'd have expected him to have more tiger features (like the shape of his head for example) but he doesn't so it kinda gives him a unique tiger (but not) kind of look......Well done! it looks good.
mao 2004/8/17 - 21:29:20
You can right-click to select colours? o_o LOL, oookay, apparently I have a lot to learn about oekaki applets. ^^;
I'm absolutely in love with the style you used on the fox's hair! It's so pretty. It reminds me of the style used in Walt Disney's Hercules, hehe. The colouring is so soft and gorgeous. Great job!
cerena 2004/8/18 - 13:21:52
Yeah, Swami didn't come out quite right for some reason. Part of it is that I used too much grass to cover his hair on one side, and so his head looks thinner, part of it is the angle, too. It seemed okay in the sketch, but I probably should have changed it before inking. I didn't want them to be mirror images of each other, but... I think I'll end up doing another version of this at a later date. ^_^ Thanks for the comments, yo!
bbh 2004/8/18 - 14:33:43
I really like how you worked the stripes as that guys beard! Er, that's what I see, anyways. X3
Love your coloring.
coleslaw 2004/8/19 - 17:31:10
yeah, it's so handy to right click on colors *u* i'm glad you discovered that, it makes things alot easier. :) awesome face on the girl, and i LOVE her hair. i like the tiger stripes on swami, but his face does look weird, and i think he has too little hair. i love the ears :D <3

rakiru 2004/8/16 - 23:10:14
EEH! I totally love your style!! And OMG..the dress is just amazing. It's so flowy! ^____^ Totally wicked cool!!
stargazing 2004/8/17 - 5:25:20
very awesome...i love it
mika-kun 2004/8/17 - 12:40:49
I like the way you have taken the typically cliched anime style and given it a new look....and it works brilliantly!
coleslaw 2004/8/17 - 14:58:10
oh. my. gosh. this is so beautiful! the dress takes my breath away, and the wings are so beautiful!!!! i LOVE her arms and legs, and the bracelets/anklets around them!!! this is waay too perfect, it's AWESOME. soo beautiful! i can't get over it. the dress is perfect.
rock_n_roller 2004/8/17 - 15:8:54

^.^; um, I dunno if its polished room worthy but ok. C&C welcome.
mika-kun 2004/8/17 - 13:5:55
After watching the anim, I would say she was great upto the point you decided to make her lines thicker....they kind of distract from the light airy feel she had before, she seems to be enjoying flying about though and with wings like that who wouldn't...:)
korn_girl 2004/8/18 - 3:0:31
yeah youre right about the lines. grr. *smacks my head*
coleslaw 2004/8/19 - 17:32:13
i really love the torso, her posture is really cool looking :) the wings are so pretty, and the red lining on everything reminds me of blood. i think that the white cloud is cool, it's reminiscent of a genie cloud :D

Omigosh... I can't believe I spent this much time on an oekaki. ^^;
I actually did this one with my mouse. The batteries for my tablet DIED ON ME. (And I can't find AAAA batteries anywhere at a REASONABLE price. Anyone know a good place? x_x) Lol, not that I'm trying to toot my own horn, but I guess using a tablet must've really helped my hand-eye coordination or something, because using a mouse seems a lot easier now. You other tabby-users should try mousing a pic or two and see if you notice a difference, too. =D
Yes, that's a cross in the background. No, I wasn't trying to add any sort of religious symbolism. Hope that's okay. ^^; I was really pinched for BG ideas... I suck at BG's. x_x
Um, C&C welcome. And I already know that the arms are funny. ^^;
coleslaw 2004/8/16 - 14:36:50
the left hand seems smally, but i love the neck/shoulders area, and her top!!! beautiful! it really inspires me :) beautiful face! awesome :D
ienjoydrawing 2004/8/16 - 14:37:25
She's pretty! Just that her left hand is kinda small and her arms look a bit thin, I think.
rakiru 2004/8/16 - 16:10:23
Mao, you know who this reminds me of? XDD She really looks like a female version of Ben ^__^. Very hawt!!! o_o; dude..I love the top and the bangle-y thing. Crazy, beautiful details! How could you pull off the patience o_O? Anyway, I think this is one of your best 'kakis (standing beside the beautiful Vincent one) ..and WITH A MOUSE for 6 hours?! -_-;; you never cease to shock me. HEEHEE the bg is making me think Kill Bill. Awesome stuff, mao!!
luck 2004/8/16 - 17:20:4
I love her top~ Even though you can't really see much of it ^^; And I love her hair. Awesome job
dolly 2004/8/17 - 17:3:35
The eyes are so cool!
z1ggy 2004/8/18 - 11:39:7
Nice hair shading and lovely detail on the dress ^^ Those cat eyes are really cool
> You other tabby-users should try mousing a pic or two
No thank you. That's just plain self-inflicted torture :) Even if I don't mind a picture taking 10 hours or so I would prefer it didn't take 20.

rakiru 2004/8/16 - 3:0:14
Eheh..I needed an excuse to draw kissy-mushy pics -_-;; I've never really drawn lip-locking, so hey, what better chance to practice (especially if your guinea pigs are Tidus and Yuna). I'm sorry if my ffx fanatic-ism is getting annoying and extreme, but I felt bad for the other depressing Tidus and Yuna oekaki (the sad FMV scene-thing);__;. Besides, these two are MUCHO MUCHO fun to draw! C&C!
obscure 2004/8/16 - 3:1:56
tidus and yuna. ;___;
stargazing 2004/8/16 - 3:38:9
absoloutley awsome colours and shading!!!!
luck 2004/8/16 - 7:2:17
Very effective liplock ^_~ And I adore her hair. Beautiful <3
mao 2004/8/16 - 7:55:31
Hammiiiie, it's so pretty. ;_; That scene rawked; you captured it perfectly! I lurve the colouring. So soft and pretty! It's different from your normal technique, right? Yuna's kimono bow-thing (the obo?) is really great. It's all perfect and from-this-angle-it-looks-like-this-ified. YAY! Meow.
mitsu 2004/8/16 - 14:25:41
Oooooo nice technique, especially on the hair. ^o^ No glaring mistakes here; everything is extremely well-done! :D They don't look like they're quite kissing, but eh, it's lovely anyway.
coleslaw 2004/8/16 - 14:35:38
i think tidus's head looks a bit flat, and that yuna's forehead looks like it's at a different angle than her jaw. other than that, i'd say that this is wonderful, and awesomely well done!!! and i have to give you credit, this would be SO hard for anyone! you pulled it off SO nicely, awesome coloring job and such emotion! lovely. :)
ienjoydrawing 2004/8/16 - 14:41:23
I agree; it's great. Nothing noticeably wrong with it or anything. Keep it up!
I dunno if you'd care, but I started playing Final Fantasy X last week. About three years late, but better late than never, I guess.
Oh, and it's also the reason why I haven't drawn anything in a while. ^^
mika-kun 2004/8/16 - 15:23:16
Quite simply brilliant, the right hand looks good like that....and them clothes....wow! dammit even the backgrounds cool..
aikara 2004/8/16 - 21:59:41
Oh my god..This is just so beautiful..I'm speechless...O_O
amanja 2004/8/17 - 2:41:5
wwwooo! it looks beautyfullsss! i love the lineart. it looks really pro! love the hair and shading.
syzygy 2004/8/17 - 16:42:14
lol, the obi. not obo. lol though... Yes! omfg, I said "I know these people!" and I dont even play this game. Im in love with your coloring and the sleeeeevvveeesss omg the sleeves. And the dress, and her outfit! Her forehead looks fine, its the hair making the line look weird, Coleslaw ^_~ and his face is a tad flat, but omfg child, this is amazing.
dolly 2004/8/17 - 17:2:43
I Love This!
bbh 2004/8/18 - 14:35:11
Aww, my twin sister has yet to beat the game so I can watch this! I'll just demand her to now...*cackles evily*
OMG I love you, this is so pretty ;3;
senobdec 2004/8/21 - 3:8:46
Absolutely stunning. Your linear is excellent, and that watercolor feel is gorgeous.
happywaterbottle 2004/8/22 - 18:49:5
oh wow thats awesome. awesome awesome! it makes me feel all emotional, as ffx is one of my favorite video games. really awesome! haaa i like it so much! *saves*
lili 2005/2/24 - 13:46:50
I love it, it's so wonderful. It made my cry! (Maybe that's because I just broke it off wiv my boo *-*) I adore the detail and the hair looks so awesome, better than the game, even.

..um.. showgirl? ..I *really* hope this is okay for polish... um.. yeah I wanted to put it here from the begining... and I think I am getting better at the realism concept... o.0; ^^; anyway, C&C is ALWAYS welcome... I really need it... thanks oh yeah... those white things? They're sposed to be feathers. X_x;
starrbroken 2004/8/16 - 1:27:49
*points, jumping up and down* It's the AOL welcome screen girl! :D
aussie 2004/8/18 - 15:19:5
XD I remember that picture, from AOL! I really like that photo; always wished it was mine. You did a good job of drawing it, too.
coleslaw 2004/8/19 - 17:36:56
cool headdress, and i love her eyeshadows (the rhinestones are a nice effect) i like how you added the hazel to her eyes.
the skin shading is nice! the feathers look a little anemic--a good way to draw them is to draw a main shaft and use a smaller brush to draw lines that go out really far, and keep in mind that they're pretty stiff. i love the eyebrows, they look really realistic! the whites of the eyes should be seriously greyed down, especially on the left side because it's so dark except for the eye. nice job! :D

ronin 2004/8/15 - 9:17:12
ummm yeah... i think it's a doodle but i think someone will move it here anyway so i'll save em the trouble :P
embo 2004/8/15 - 13:5:43
a little sure of yourself aren't you? we only move really exceptional pieces to Polished if we have to. :P
haha, anyways, this is very nice. I love the colors you used and the flow of lines is very good. Compositionally it's a bit weak towards the bottom right corner. The blue doesn't keep the going so most of the attention is drawn to the hat which is the most bold object.
ronin 2004/8/15 - 16:42:28
yeah XD hahaha it's the only thing keeping me going blahahah
padalyn 2004/8/15 - 19:26:7
the pastely colours all look very nice together!
coleslaw 2004/8/16 - 14:32:23
i think that the sketchy light blue lines are a nice effect, but hopefully your cockiness is a joke :)
i love your art! :)
mika-kun 2004/8/16 - 15:39:48
I like the pic, and I like the style....I also like the cockiness in your comment......I also like the way her lips seem to be saying 'Move me to the test room'....lol..
coleslaw 2004/8/16 - 17:27:19
i normally wouldn't comment on someone else's comment in the polished room, but holy crap mika, that last part made me laugh out loud XD
amanja 2004/8/17 - 2:44:59
its so.. wow! just wow. i love how the colors come together so well. love the face and the coloring style. it's unique and a style most people don't use.

i hope the partial nudity is okay
coleslaw 2004/8/14 - 19:10:36
holy nipple! :D i love it. ...the picture, that is. the background is awesome!!!! i love the use of the word pain. very subtle and ... subliminal? :) awesome border! you've always been so good at the art aspect of drawing. your pieces always have a meaning, it's not just "look at my drawing skills". you make me sick. :D
ronin 2004/8/14 - 19:57:17

coleslaw 2004/8/14 - 18:21:36
i'm sorry enshoku, it's still cute. :(
:D:D i love it, it's awesome! i love the bloodied head.
embo 2004/8/14 - 20:7:47
omigosh! i love it! ahahaha. she looks like, "I know, i killed her, i hope it doesn't keep me from beauty school :( :( :("
peanutsweeper 2004/8/15 - 14:34:48
Awww...but it's evilly cute, so it's alright. I love her eyes, they're like embers--y'know all glowy like. Mm, shiny background too!
mitsu 2004/8/15 - 21:37:42
Eeeeeeeeee :3 How very cute! I applaud your efforts at doing something different and pronounce it a success! ^___^ Now I want my own head friend.
kaira 2004/8/16 - 2:55:22
Awww... it's so cute!! ^^ ...morbid, yet cute!! It's just that mixing morbidness with your drawing skills make such an irresitablely cute combination. ^^ Don't ask how that's possible, but it works! And it's awesome! ^^
mika-kun 2004/8/16 - 15:24:41
