*my thumb always look dull from distance, full view please*

maigetsu-chan ~fuyu suteki~ (舞月-チャン ~冬素敵~)
Sorry for a bit rude, using Mai-Chan as my drawing title.
Actually I’m make a Mai-Chan fan-art, yep so this my Mai-Chan fan art version from me..
I’m wrapped Mai-Chan with sack, composing her on centre canvas, added some required element (snowmen etc), adding weird dull-colored clouds, managing lights and illumination around her.

What can i say?..My Wintry Wonderland Entry? (please, don’t get Mai-Chan angry with my late submission entry , I’m OK if this one recognized as normal entry due my unforgivable lateness), surely I’m put all my sweat and blood to done this one, i'm cannot leave something unpolished.

Slow? Hai, very slow, ultra slow.
Taking much time than expected, even with 3 days extension still can’t done.
Anyway, what time is it? Wintry Wonderland deadline? Already passed? ooooh T_T
Looks i can’t figured out to submitted on time, though the result was’nt perfect for me..some parts need some refinement.
Must i do 8 month drawing again?

During 3 days extension, at least i’m done following :
1. Get my right palm stiff, (over gripped and clicked mouse repeatedly)
2. My shoulder needs some treatment.
3. Sleepless night (at least, I’m force to spent it out for 2 hours rest)
4. Up to 5 cup/can coffee (various taste )
5. Collapsed on 4th February, very tired and cannot continue anymore, bed is my ideal choice. Resuming on 5th Feb.
6. Finish date : 2012/02/12

Painting with mouse is real horrendous things i do. Unlike tablet pen, mouse doesn’t support pressure, tilting, bearing, rotating, anything, everything. In the end not painting, but PAIN-ning. Geez..I’m trying to switching with simpler art to beat the deadline like I’m announce on forum, but my hand cannot stop shading, add more shading. I need tablet pen at least, maybe next year, so i have no choice to struggling with my mouse (again)T_T

The process same with previous art, drawing, sketching, art line, painting. Special for this case, I’m using my sketch rather vectoring. Usual method i do is replacing my hand stroke with vector/digital outline, but I want trying something different, new, and the result : total reinvent! It’s my first time maximizing and pulled out all all brush potential seriously, but must sacrificing my finger with clicking repeatedly, sometimes set manually brushes opacity/hardness to achieve desired result. I’m called these cheap trick “fake pressure”. Hmm, i think those daunting process can replaced with tablet easily, just one stroke with pressure i got same/better result. I’m also using Illustrator, but looks it completely devoured by Photoshop brush, some vector elements still visible but actually I’m managed to destroy all vector-look stuff for this session to matching all brushed look and glowing ambient light.

Thanks for AozoraSkies who keep cheer me up, Fireflywish-sama and all MT staff which extended 3 days for competition, but sorry i can full my promise. (T-T) (T_T) . Maybe next year, i’m trying to speed up my works :)

Nee, i can’t participate anything. Good luck for any W2 member! I’m already saw whole entry and most of gallery are so amazing, mind-blowing! I can’t stand my entry which created with cheap techniques.
The last, let me rest and wanna go SLEEEP
My energy remains no more than one drop water, i’m do everything in last 5 days though still over deadline, my sacrifice and hard work pull out my energy and brains, i’m hungry too, I’ll get myself recovered after long-time rest. Do anything you want like commenting, or just play around my GB with my default userpage layout

Tools : Pencil | Illustrator | Photoshop
600 dpi, I’m forget to reducing resolution while scanning (300 dpi = optimal resolution for my computer can process)
My second art after two years hibernation.
Don’t critique my slowness.
I leave some screenshot here.

1st submit get error : The following errors occured:
file: Image too large in dimensions, maximum amount of pixels is 10000000 (arrrgh)
Resizing 80% fix this error.

2nd submit : Updated to larger resolution 85%! Up to 86% or original size, will get error message again ><

nemui desu.
-_- zzzzzzz.....
