Artist Comment

This is my new doujinshi I made using different CG techniques (both mouse and the tablet). The characters are designed by me (the girl is from an older doujinshi I submitted here at MT). The huge bird is the Phoenix; in Egyptian mythology the bird Phoenix rises every morning with the sun and dies every evening. It was an important part of worshipping the sun God Ra (I hope I retold the story properly). It took a lot of time to draw and colour it so I decided to make it in wallpaper size.

    Thatá really good y'know, the perspective is great... (ok, the girl needs to be a little careful with a combination between "wind" and "men eyes" but that's on, hehe, just kidding) but now that I downloaded it I have to ask, how did you drew it? the lines are so linear (I mean have same thickness from beggining to end)!
    THe city is very cool, and I can see you worked very much on it!
    Cool, very cool!
    Keep them coming, ok?

    You did so well on the details. I love the phoenix. XD It's so pretty and golden. Great job on it. I like your placement on the two people like that. You did a great job on the shading too. I never buildings came in those colors. ^_^ Loves it~

    The colour and detail on the charactors is amazing! The perspective on the buildings looks a bit out, but that is not really important. +Fav!

    Ok Harakiri it's your turn to get some late comments :) :
    Now this is amazing. It reminds me of your style I appreciated so much and shows me how much you improved. It really displays dedication, from the concept to the coloring. I love how you often mix some casual and modern design on your characters with something completely different. And this time it's a phoenix! I love how he is rising over the city, almost like he is going to engulf everything like a big wave, but it still gives away a gentle and non destructive feeling. Maybe because of the peaceful expressions of the characters. Concerning them, I think you could improve your fold work (without overdoing it though) and the face of the girl. Overall the curves of their lineart could flow more naturally, and I would have put highlights in the eyes. There also seem to be some mistakes in the coloring, like on the hair of the boy, the coloring of the phoenix looks awesome on the other side :) . No complaints about the city, the different perspectives used really work. And I like your color choice too. Overall a very well designed picture, I'm sure it's perfect as a wallpaper :) .
