Artist Comment

At first I was trying to make the 8 of them celebrating new year together by graffiting the wall. But it seems like the completion took longer time than expected... Anyway, Bleach 1st OP inspired me to do this. If you still remember the part where Tatsuki nd Orihime sprayed right in front , yeap. That's the part.

But things didn't go so well. I can't do any spray effects, and not even a good spray brush. (Wait, that should be.. I can't find even one..) So I had to use splatters instead, and slapped it right at front. Feels good really. >.<

Those 2 right in front of you.. (Yuasa and Hazuki), were done using anime CG style, and was done on different layer compared to those at the back. Hm...

The brush was called.. SM_SplatterisM1_Low.. found in DevArt.. good brush, really makes you feel like throwing paint on your wall right now...

For some reason.. this one looks a little funny.. the whole thing looks cheap for some reason. Maybe I'll update it with another new one when I have another new idea...

Oh, and uh.. if you know just how to make spray effects, do leave me a message by using the comment box. Help much appreciated.

    Ohoh you're going full speed, many submissions in a few days !

    anyway i like the "busy" feel from this one, they're all cooperating (except for kiro, if that's him with the blue hair, who seems to be 'supervising' the work lol). i think you did a good job for the proportions, maybe their faces are a bit too angular, and the guys at the back could use mouthes too ^_^' (their eyes as well are freaking me out, the black in it is too big or something)...
    aaaapaaart from baaaaad comments, i have to say i love yuasa's smile, and the both of them looks quite natural (though maybe yuasa should look in front of him)...

    good job anyway XD, and kazuma and the girl kinda represent you throwing paint on the wall ne?

    PS man i can't believe i sound sooo harsh XP

    Hahaha, yeah, when I first saw this, I thought of the first opening of Bleach :P
    Anywho, very nicely done! The characters are awesome and I love the graffitti-ness. Great job!

    Hmm... I see some improvements but I still think you have to practice and improve more on the character design. But I see the effort for the whole doujin and it's fine for me.

    Hello Ephie!

    I like this idea a lot...! The brush that you found works well for it! I don't understand why you think that it looks cheap! The coloration is really good as usual... And you chose a nice theme! I don't see the cheapness at all! What maybe could be improved is the graffiti in the back. That doesn't look THAT real... but it also doesn't look completely unreal! And I know how difficult it is to make Graffiti look realistic! So I think you did well on this doujinshi!
