Artist Comment

A submission for the contest "Let There Be Light" hosted at paint-o-rama. You can find a vector version I posted here.

Inpiration: Submission for the paint-o-rama contest.
Started: Nearning the end of Janruary
Hours: 9 hours
Layers: 65
Hardest Part: brushing the rocky parts
Easiest Part: The light (Sun)
Credits: Scan from kyroooo
Notes: For this wallpaper I changed the vector colors a little brighter and blurry just so it could fit the background. I know it's very uncreative, but originally it was suppose to be Lacus walking on stairs up to the clouds where there is Heaven's Gate, but the cloud effects didn't go so well in close up. :sweat: I tried many tutorials and even guessed, but it didn't go so well despite I tried following the instruction.

I know I should've tried smudging the characters to make it more realistic and gave more shadowy depth to them to fit with the background, but it was too late by teh time when I finished vectorying them and I didn't have enough time.

The title was originally suppose to be "Heavenly Dawn", "Raphsody Dawn", or "Morning Dusk", but that didn't go as well. ^_^' My sister gave me the idea for the title "Veil of Light" so I just used it anyways. Suggest me a better name when you comment me on this wallpaper. :)

I won't mind the critism if the smudging and brushes weren't good because I must admit that there's one thing I hate above the whole wallpaper is the how badly I made the rocks they were suppose to walk on really just sicking me.

    Yay, now you've posted your entry. :D
    Well, on the bright side, this wallpaper is lovely. The choice of colours really fits the whole atmosphere. Your vector is great. I have the original scan, which is sorta bad quality to vector though. And you nailed it, on the vector. ;) I love the light effect, very well-done. :)

    On the dark..side, the characters are lack of depth. (I know you already knew it XD) The clouds seem abit unreal, but still cool though. The sea is not really incorporated with the sky. The rocks also lack of depth, as well as the sea on the right. But I do love the sparkles on the sea. :D

    I think the title is okay, since I'm not good with titles too. XD And I wish to see your tutorial on how you paint the light effect behind Lacus. Personally, I think you've done really great here, for your first time painting. Just be sure to blend your vectors well with your painting. Great job, and good luck for the contest! :)

    Ah no, I like the clouds!
    The lighting seems cool and the bg looks great though maybe the water needs a bit touching up. Other than that, nicely done~

    Nice one! Your Lacus vector is really pretty!
    Great job on the painting! :D
    A wallie title? Hmm i think the title is alright but i can give ya some suggestions :D :
    "A new future"
    "Heavenly Light"
    "Morning Light"
    "Morning breeze"
    "Heading towards the light"
    "Light of future"
    "A new start"
    "Spirit of Light"
    "Shining future"
    Well i hope you'll be able to choose one! (it's really okay if you don't XD this is what i do sometimes when i can't think of a title ,I look at the image for a while and ideas just come in my head :D)
    Anyways good work! *favs*

    nice work! esp for your first painting ;) great vectoring (you've improved so much! :) ) , esp with the transparent-ness of her dress.

    like gaara mentioned, I like the colour scheme. The clouds are not as bad as you think, though it could be smoothed out a bit more (esp on the left side). The rocks... I think the main reason is that it's over-smudged, so it looks too soft for rocks (but I'm never good at doing them either...)

    yeah it does lack a bit of depth. The shading on Lacus could be emphasized a lot more, esp given that the light source seems to be directly behind her (which would make her almost a silhouette).. though I think there is another light source seeing as how Kira's lighting is coming from the right...)...

    Also, Lacus' shadow looks too sharp. It should be softened a bit.

    anyway, good luck on the contest! ;) I'd like to see how the water is done for the tutorial, I esp like those reflection sparkles :)
