Artist Comment

this is my second time coloring using computer, this time i added a background. i rarely add background but this time i just had to because i really wanted to make a image that i imagine in my head. but it didnt go as i planned. space scene was very hard to produce and i was trying to find good turtorial for the cloud, but i couldnt find the right one so i just used a big fat brush in photoshop and painted like i would paint with real paint brush. i also try to add special effects like the glows and stars. but they dont look good at all. in the end this was best i could do with my current skill with photoshop. but i did learn a lot about photoshop functions. any comments are welcome, also i would really appreciate if someone could give me some tips in making of space bg using photoshop.

    Really lovely! ^^ I love the sky! it's very well coloured :) and the stars are a nice touch ^^ I like the clouds too! The girl is a little weird though, not the coloring, the coloring is really good, but the drawing could be improved. Sorry I cannot give you any tip about the space thing >.< Anyway, you did a great job, keep practicing!! ^^

    I like the idea in your drawing!! XD
    The coloring of the drawing looks nice. ^^
    The background is okay. I think the moon needs more work because the lines are jagged.
    I know some tutorials in making a starfield from: http://gallery.artofgregmartin.com/tutorials.html.

    heh. love the clouds. looking pretty fluffy.

    keep it up! though something could be done with the jagged edges of the moon. still it's a great attempt.
