Entry for the Paint-o-rama contest & present for Annakee's birthday!

Paint-O-rama's GRAND OPENING contest!


isnt lovely how i always procrastinate and never finish till a couple hours before the deadline?

well, another simple wall again. It was supposed to be an UN-simple wall, but i dont know...now that i did one simple wall, it seems like im stuck on them or something. Hmm...well, maybe its technically not a simple wall...but it looks really really plain to me. I think its the nothing-ness in the bg.
I have no clue what painting is, or how to paint. I just did what I thought looked like painting...and well, kept on going. ehhehe :nya: Sooooo I hope this looks somewhat suspiciously painted. No stock photos were used or modified...the bamboo was all done from scratch. and I think it looks pretty good considering that I have no clue what the heck bamboo looks like. I looked at a couple stock photos just for some ideas on shape and color, but other than that, it was all from my widdle brain. Kenshin is actually the scan that i modified using the smudge tool (but no filters....). ALOT of smudge tool, and some blur tool. Basically, if you took out the smudge tool and blur tool things, there would be no wall left. Practically everything was made with the smudge tool, blur tool, and soft round brush. No matter how hard you look on the net you wont find the exact scan i used though! You might find the pose, but I completely changed his hairstyle (the ponytail part), vectored the scalp hair (because the color didnt match the new ponytail), and changed his eye from nice kenshin to battousai kenshin. To tell you the truth, I like battousai kenshin better. ^-^ MUCH hawter. teehee.

OH! OH! and my favorite part of course...is the moonlight! Ive never done moonlight before so i hope it looks alright. It made it look sooo much more dramatic. thanks for the tutorial on lighting jason, but i ended up not using it because im not so great at following tuts. hehehe. OX

sooo how do you guys like the blood? I really like ^-^ Although it might gross some people out when they first turn on their computer to see blood, but I think it adds more detail and its gonna stay! If you want a blood-less version however, i can give you one. (as long as my computer doesnt crash again)

tutorial on how to make the bamboo coming soon

AND HAPPY BIRTHDAY ANNAKEE! im sorry this is really early, but i thought you might like the style. ( i dunno why tho....ahah) and i worked so hard on it, so i like to dedicate those kind of walls to friends ^-^

Lacus and I had a theme going on :D. She did a Kaoru pretty wallie, and I did a Kenshin wall arent we cute XD.

    It is pretty neat! I just kinda wish that there was something on the left, like a firefly guiding him through the forest. Either way, still pretty neat looking! Great job on it!

  3. Sinever Dec 20, 2006

    you did a wonderful job

  4. sakuya-sama Dec 20, 2006

    *astonished seeing the whole work* still im amazed with the great work here... ash.. is so beautiful
    the work that you did on kenshin is very good, but those bamboos are... are a good touch for the composition :D

    is one of those wallpaper class superb
    Muchas Gracias ^^

  6. Fran Retired Moderator Dec 20, 2006

    Wow...just wow..
    It looks fantastic starr! Really cool work!
    oww i was going to ask how you made the bamboo...so i guess i'll have to wait :)
    Wow...it's just amazing! i don't know what else to say >_<
    + fav! definitely :)

  7. Chloe Retired Moderator Dec 20, 2006

    The moonlight looks fab and the bamboo is great. The painting/smudging/blurring is really well done.
    Don't forget the tut =D
    Great job!

  8. MapleRose Retired Moderator Dec 20, 2006

    ah neat painting :) I like those bamboos (can't wait to see the tutorial on it ;) ). and the scan you've modified looks nice too, the style is consistent with the background. I like how you've got the shadow of the bamboo to fold along with his clothing too ^^ Lastly, I like those moonlight effects on the bamboo, but maybe there should be some moon highlights on his hair (and his clothes) as well.

    oh yeah, the blood is a nice touch actually :)

  9. mickyoko Dec 21, 2006

    If you want to continue/pursue more on digital painting try using a hard edge brush more, then avoid the smudge and blur. I guarantee to you more better results. Good luck in the contest, I'm also judging there. ^^;

    A M A Z I N G ! ! ! ! I'm really loving painted walls right now, and this is awesome! The moonlight turned out really nice and the bamboo does, indeed,look like bamboo. There's no bamboo where you live? *scratches head* I guess pretty much everything will grow in Oklahoma.

  11. flyindreams Dec 22, 2006

    :O Very nicely done. In full view the shading and the lighting on Kenshin look terrific! :D

  12. Rhonda21 Dec 23, 2006

    oh wow looks really cool! Love the moonlight! Looks awesome. And good looking blood as well! great work!

    This is sorta a late comment >_>

    I'm really liking paint-o-rama's contest theme, Feudal Eras. Especially when the wallpaper is of my favorite anime; Rurouni Kenshin! XD I've seen 2 so far of RK and I'm in heaven with both of the wallpapers X3 Anyway, I love the work you did in this wall! I also like the battousai better than the normal kenshin as well. Before I go off track, great job and keep it up!
