I went into this with the attitude of just "a 20-minute doodle to let these guys know I'm alive still" then I got a bad case of insomnia, finally went to bed, resumed the next day with the same attitude, same insomnia, finished today. Things have been really crazy lately-the young man with whom I am slowly falling in love lost his father a couple mornings ago to liver cancer. I have been feeling uneasy since the diagnosis from merely 2 months ago or so, and it's been really hard on me and David to get through this. Sent him flowers today *sigh* yeah, so there ya go. As for the pic, linework is iffy, coloring is nothing I've ever tried before, so, bleh. Timer's way off from resuming and such (insomnia mentioned above)

yaay! its winter!!!.....but i dont get snow, i would love to touch it, though. oh well. Girl In Snow.
sifer 2004/7/31 - 22:53:5
Aww! So adorable! ^_^ The smooth colors and soft painting method really works for this piece and the lineart is quite clean. The only thing that struck me odd was the fact that the eyebrows seem to be missing - not sure if that was your intention. It's beautiful anyhow, so I guess it doesn't matter. :)
rakiru 2004/8/1 - 0:5:42
AAWWW...I just wanna huggle-squish this picture ^^. I love your colouring style o_o. So unique and soft!
ri-su 2004/8/1 - 0:34:34
i dont think i ever draw eyebrows o_o...just a thing i do, i guess. or its coz i forget them every time.
cutie_1 2004/8/1 - 0:46:51
I love this! its so cute and soft! I had to look and c where you were from cuz I was so confused it was winter! i love snow, I hate it when it snows in my summer tho!
heavenlystrike 2004/8/1 - 1:11:22
omg it's the cutest thing ever :3 may i put it in my agenda for winter :D? lol me being at the other end of the world*canada* it's sunny summer outside but i can't wait till winter for tons of snow and tons of ski! anyways hohoho i really like the shading it's so soft and the jackets makes me go wee n_n adorable water color tool, it's just wonderfully cute! keep up the good work hohoho
maggie_sue 2004/8/1 - 2:49:22
*is also on the other side of the world (Texas, ya'll)* it is still very hot and sunny...and a bit grueling for those of us who work outside all day, curse you, pool management. I also cannot wait for winter...although I'm still waiting for school to start up again here, lol. This is very cute, I love the coloring. She looks so cold and flushed, yet so happy to be playing in the snow. Hope you get some this season, it's fun to play in *cough* snowboarding *cough*.
ri-su 2004/8/1 - 2:58:46
i doubt we will get any snow. we never get snow. too hot. its sunny..most of the time. but just really really cold.
kaiomi 2004/8/1 - 3:53:12
me lives in Hawaii >< Now I want to go to Alaska or some other place like that just to see snow. I just love how you colored her clothes. Everything just o-so-soft and filled with fluffyness :)
heavenlystrike 2004/8/1 - 17:24:22
you never saw snow ;_; so sad! come to canadaa n_n we have plenty in janurary! but somehow we all get sick and tired of it at some point and hope it melts T_T hohoho
bbh 2004/8/3 - 15:49:37

I know some people might not think that this pic belongs in teh polished room but i do because it means very much to my family. My sister oringainaly for an art class and it had to be something that ment alot to you and she drew this becasue of her illness. The Road in the eye means the journy ahead and behind. You dont know whats goning to happen up there so u just keep walking to find out. I revised it a lil she dint use that brihgt of colors and ther were no puzzle peices in it but here it is and if it doesnt show up ill just redo it cus righ tnow my computer is being very very stupid!
mika-kun 2004/8/3 - 17:58:39
Your pics have a right to be here as much as anyone else's...and it is special because it means something to you...:)

C+C welcome.
heavenlystrike 2004/7/30 - 14:25:28

kougra_girl 2004/7/30 - 11:0:34

stargazing 2004/7/30 - 4:23:0

coleslaw 2004/7/30 - 8:57:24
i disagree with the part about the forearms being too big. that's one of the reasons that i love your style. :)
awesome dress!!!!! this is so great. :)
heavenlystrike 2004/7/30 - 14:14:46

I am ready to kill my mouse!!!
anywho..I cant draw hands. I know. I decided to practice instead of hide them all the time. I remmembered to sign my name I am proud!!
My ref is the latest covergirl nail polish ad. (I found it in YM) I sorta changed her, she used to have teeth, but she looked like a horse..so yes! C & C apprietiated!
coleslaw 2004/7/29 - 8:25:15
it looks beautiful!!! the hands aren't that bad, actually. before you draw hands, try drawing the palm. basically square, but with a bump for the thumb. then draw the fingers. that's how i do it, and it's usually pretty easy. :) anyways, the face is wonderful! i LOVE the nose. i don't know why, it's just wonderful :) good job!
kaiomi 2004/7/29 - 13:37:34
Very nice job and well done! I love the shading and highlights of her face...and the hat ^_^
obscure 2004/7/29 - 15:59:13
first thing i thought of when i saw this was gwen stefani, somehow.
orange-wishes 2004/7/29 - 17:12:2
The hat is really stylin'. The face is nicely done. Only thing I have to say is that the finger on the left(or right depending on where you look at it from) hand should be a bit longer. Very nice picture indeed.
rock_n_roller 2004/7/29 - 18:1:14
W-O-W! *_* CHRISTINEY!!! this is sooooooooo unbeleivably good...i luv it...she is soooo pretty! like i am speechless!! her hands are great and her lips are so shiny and pretty! and same with her nails..like oooo and omg u can so draw noses! i suck at hands and noses...omg i luv it so much! good job girl! =D
maggie_sue 2004/7/31 - 2:6:19
The lips are so nice...so shiny and "smirk-y" if that's a word-I'm no English major here. Lovely coloring, again, especially the area around her cheeks, under the cheekbone-very smooth. Only two things. Remember what I said on your last pic about your hand being big enough to cover most of your face-base of the palm to top of your middle finger will actually stretch from your chin to your forehead, try it. That usually helps when deciding on hand proportions and such. My other suggestion, I noticed you used a lot of black with your shading (under the brim of her hat, under her chin on her hair, and for her nostril). As much as you want to use black to darken those areas, it actually tends to flatten the picture out as well as take away from the warm tones used on the skin. As far as skin tones, a deep red or browns and umbers would do the trick, keep getting darker, just stay away from the black. Also, using a complementary color actually acts to neutralize the colored shaded area, slightly taking away from the warmth, not as drastic as black. That usually helps colored realisms keep their, well, realism. Lovely work, definitly like these new oekaki's I'm seeing from you. You're improving with each one, keep it up!
