*Edit* Making this a print. :)

So this time it's ~Naoru's fault- she sent me some beautiful celtic music a while back, and somehow one or two in particular just ooze with inpiration for my wild centaurs. This time the result is a digital sketch of Kiell and character developement... and I'm utterly amazed by what a beautiful character she is! She's just... so beautiful and... and... free, and... garg! Too much for words, I guess. When I get my own computer, this is definitely going to be a first pick for a desktop- I just loooooove the way it came out!

Very beautiful! I like it!

And I like that you(as it is seen from how you describe your characters) know that all of your characters have "their own lives" in some way. I mean that many creators, writers, artists and etc. often don't feel their creations as something really alive(in the world of ideas, but still), as something that has its own feelings, its own destiny and will, and everything that a real person has...They are often manipulating with characters as if they were just words or strokes on paper or screen.
So as the result these people capture their own lives or whatever else, but not true life of character. Many people even don't see any difference between life of thier creations and their own oppinion on what that life should be. They don't give any freedom to their characters...
But I thing you see that difference...) you work with your characters very carefully, with awe and with reverance... At least I saw that while browsing through your account here) am I right about you?:)

I hope you understood at least something that I want to express in my grammarless pile of words) my english is not really good:)

To feel all that is a great thing!)

Thank you very much! I've been working very hard to develop my characters and make them feel and act believable- I love it when a story feels like the characters really made the decisions that drive the plot, and I want my stories to feel the same way. I'm hoping that, with some hard work and God's help, I'll be able to completely finish the story and keep the characters realistic through the whole thing. :)

Her color scheme is phenomenal. It's like coffee creamer and chocolate (forgive my silly comparison). B-e-a-utiful character concept. I must see more of this woman.

Personally, I see her color scheme as more of a chocolate-covered Twinkie. XD And believe me, if I get inspiration that would do her justice, you will see more of her. :D (same goes for the other 23,094,751 characters that I can't seem to find sufficient time to draw XP)

Did I tell you that I really like your sig?

I needs me some Celtic music. For the moment, I'll have to settle with electric cello. Sooo, what brushes did you use for this piece? For the lineart & colour and such?

:iconyubria:
Yubria Featured By Owner Mar 25, 2010
XD Um, I did this so long ago, I'm not sure if I remember. My favorite brush for quite a while has been the round tip pen (I use Painter, no idea what that would be in Photoshop, but it's a flat color round brush that gets smaller with less pressure) on 10% opacity. It was probably higher opacity for the lineart. Anyways, the lineart is more of a scribbly sketch that I didn't feel like refining at all. The shading was done by said brush in scribbles. After that, I put the pen on 0% resat and 100% bleed, which makes it a really nice blender, and started blending in the scribbles. Rinse and repeat a few times, and here it is. Does that help?

Ah, well, I always love to hear what other people use so I can better do my own digital art!
10% opacity? Really?
And yes, it does help, thanks!

Well, it might have been 100% for this one, I don't remember. But I use that brush so often, I don't know what I'd do without it! I've actually picked up several different techniques via youtube videos- you know, the type where they speed it up? Those can be surprisingly helpful at times.

I should watch more YouTube speedpaints. And livestreaming. I have an account there, and have seen a couple of other people do it too! Do you have an account?

Yubria Featured By Owner Mar 25, 2010
Livestreaming is fun to watch, but I usually loose interest 5 min into it b/c it's too slow. XD No, I don't have an account. :( I would, though, if I could figure out how to get the computer to record what I'm doing... although considering the computer I use, it would probably have a heart attack or something if I tried doing that many things at once. :P

Half the fun I get from it is chatting, and not having to register to chat while the artist is drawing.
To film your desktop, you just get LiveStream Procraster installed, though from the sounds of your computer. Mine only slows down if I try to do... like 10 things at once. Or push too many buttons while it's still loading one thing. It doesn't appreciate that very much.

Background/General critique on the double! (As requested in the Critique Requests. :D )

Wow! You're right - she is a beautiful character! And you captured her free spirit in her expression, gesture, and...everything! The way you made the wind blow her hair, the grass, and the clouds is really effective, too. :D

I like the sketchiness of it - gives it a more relaxed feel, methinks.

One thing to learn about backgrounds, (and I'm learning this, myself,) is learning how to finally tighten them all up. For example - working in the mountains, clouds, whatever else all in a fuzzy airbrush. For some pictures where you want the subject to retain just about %100 of the focus, this works out, and then, if you are so inclined, you can go over the basic forms of the background with a smaller airbrush, and then a smaller airbrush, and so for until you obtain your 'blur' of choice. Just one way of working it out.

Another way to help tighten up backgrounds is getting rid of the lines. I do this a lot - I keep the subject/focus with lines, and then I make the background lineless. Sometimes adding lines on the background kind of musses up things. For example, the grey outlines on the clouds. I'm not saying they're mussed up, no! I'm just saying that, perhaps, maybe a really bright white outline would have made the white caps in the clouds stick out better. Especially how you have them built up - the dark grey, the grey, the white and then the!...grey? It kind of puts a halt on the effect, if you know what I mean. :)

The mountains, too - yes, they're mountains! The shading on them is very well done, but in some places the lines just look out of place. Like on the slopes where the lines kind of squiggle out and such - they kind of ruin the effect of a steep mountain slope.

I gotta say, though, I do like that grass - the lines work very well here, ha-ha! ^^ One thing to do, though, that can make them really pop out - you can add some really bright greenish/yellow highlights on the more prominent blades - this can make the grass look thicker and shinier. :3

Like I said earlier, the overall mood of the piece is very settled...and I like how it's done! Another thing you could add would be a slightly darker bluish-grey gradient to the sky. This could help the overall piece in that everything is all nice and sketchy and shaded and then some clouds and SKY. It's just kind of this blue expanse that's just chilling out there, ha-ha. Keep the colours, but stressing them a bit can work wonders! :D

Overall, great job! The whole piece itself is really well done, and your centaur fits it perfectly! This'll make you an awesome background! (And ahhhh, the music of the Celts... :aww: )

Thanks, that's pretty helpful, and I see what you mean about the lines and stuff. Although the mountains weren't intended to look steep- like [link] and [link] but not quite so tall. Again, thank you, I'll definitely keep all that in mind on my current project.

I think I've seen some cards like that, they're very beautiful! I like to hoard the pretty ones and stick them on my walls.

I should draw her more, I WANT to draw her more, but unfortunately, that's the case with pretty much ALL my 3.2 million characters. :P
