Please full-view and add to favs if u like it. ^^

This is a character I made. Her name is Oon. I was gonna spell it "Un". But I'm still debating on that. And I dont know how to add accents on the comp so, for the sake of people "not" thinking her name is Un as in fun or U.N. as in united nations, I felt titling it this for now is best.

- How it was done -

well the best i can do right now is give a bit of an overview.
First I drew the picture on paper in pencil.
Then I scanned it at 1200 dpi.
I resized it because the image was rlly large. I even had to shrink it again "after" I was done painting it because the "file size" was too large for MT to accept.

I set it to multiply and painted over it with the airbrush brush tool. I had to mess with the layers here and there for the lines to appear but not overpower the colors.

For the eyes, I vectored a few stuff there. I didnt vector the eyes themselves. If u full view it and look "inside" her eyes, u might see shiny specks and lines to make it look "glittery" or something.

And that's basically how I did it. I don't have a tablet. I used the touchpad mouse on myt laptop to do this.
The software I used was adobe photoshop 7.0. And the scanner I used was HP Office Jet.

- Thx to -

Thx 2 nuckolls at stock.xchng site (great site for stock photos). I didn't use any photos in this, to be honest, I drew everything myself. But I did use nuckolls' photo "Inside-Outside" as reference when I was "drawing" the picture on paper. I'll be stopping by his/her page to let them know I used it.

(Minimized and edited because u must be a member of stock.xchng to have access to the real full quality one)

Also thx to weird12u (wei-chan / CC). her personality helped me get a good idea of how to make this character. x3

- Final Stuff to Say -

Oon is a funny character, I didn't have much reference for her, but I watched a whole lot of j-pop and k-pop pv's in hopes of developing a look for her in my mind and this is what I came up with. She's a character in my manga that I might not even start until I get a tablet so I can work with manga studio properly. And with all the things I bought and is paying for, I don't think I'll be getting it anytime soon. TwT *sad*

The image will be put up on my deviant art, the otaku, tokyopop, square enix, art bistro, creative stem, etc. accounts when I have the time and energy to do it. @w@; *thumbs up* But for now, it's only here.
If u want to see some more art by me, visit my profile page: http://selemental.minitokyo.net
and u will see links to my art accounts there.

I don't do requests, no tough feelings TwT), but I don't have the ability to do them now and I might not even want to, because I think it's more fun to draw what i want when i want to. But it's mostly because there's no guarantee that it will rlly please the person. Well for me, there's no guarantee. Probably different for other people.

But I have another kind of news that offsets this. If u want to use my picture, not sell it (dont sell it), for a site or whatever or maybe share it somewhere u can, but u would have to do the following
# join MT (doesnt take long if ur not a member)
# add this submission to favorites
# wherever u use it, be sure to mention my name and say that i (Selemental from MT) made it. it would also help if u passed by and let me know ur gonna use it and for what. ^^;

* if u manage to get the image from other art accounts that belong to me (probly under a different name) same rules apply to them if it is possible to follow such rules. because i know creative stem needs a portfolio in order for people to join, so u might not be able to fav or comment that. in that case, it would be helpful to just mention my penname (nickname) that u got the image from.

That's it. That's all I wanted to say. =w= *bad habit of writing too much* Thx in advanced if there's anyone who actually read this and adds this to fav.

    O.O wow Sel your really good.

  3. segnoj Feb 13, 2010

    Very nice~
    You did a very good drawing the girl :)
    I like how she has a more realistic physique rather than the usual skinny anime look, which gives a European vibe (no offense to any Europeans out there ^^")

    I like how you have her backside in the mirror too.
    I personally find the extra bulge of hair a bit weird.. is it her ponytail?
    Either way, I think she will look better without it.

    Anyways, I think the stained glass looks good overall, so I have no problems with the style of painting ^___^

    coloring looks good, but the girl seems to be another picture, becouse not combine with the background (shadow).

    Quote by jese-mxcoloring looks good, but the girl seems to be another picture, becouse not combine with the background (shadow).

    lolz no xD there r no other pictures. if it looks out of place it's the painting job i did. each part i painted (the skin, the dress, the lamp, etc), like i do when i vector, they r all on separate layers. and since i dont have a tablet and i colored it with the paint brush instead of vectoring in her skin, it might seem blurry on the edges, but that's because i wanted to keep its painted-look. that's just how paintings r @w@

    but if u look at the lines of the picture, u will clearly see that everything is "together". X3

    thx 4 complimenting my coloring >////< ) *hugs*

    @ segnoj: that;s not a bulge, that's her ponytail (she has it on the side of her head). it's hard to see cuz it's black, but i highlighted it a bit so the lines can show. so if ur computer display screen is not too dark then u will be able to see it clearly. : ) especially if u "full-view" it. thx 4 the comments x3 *hugs* >///<

    @ everyone: thx so much 4 all ur comments and support. >w< ) <3333333333333
    i will try to keep improving. i'll do my best on the next pic too <3 thx so much again. <333
