This should’ve been done a week ago. -_-
I finally got all the colors to a point that I like for the most part, but the shading itself seems off to me. Actually, I think I may know why. I didn’t fill the whole layer with the shading and then “erase paint” the light like I usually do, but instead I just painted the shadows themselves… Imma redo it. -x-
We celebrated my friend, itsdrarrybaby's birthday yesterday, so I drew her some sketches as a gift. :D She asked me to draw that guy (who I barely just looked up to be Dylan O'Brien, lol) some months ago, but I never did… ._.
I also drew her Ryuuren Ran from the anime she recommended me, Saiunkoku Monogatari. Dude has waaaaay too many clothes and details! >_< Took just as long as the other two combined!
Copied from this and this, and heavily referenced Ryuuren.
Well, here they are, the five projects I did in Photoshop class. Sorry I’ve been so sluggish with doing stuff, part of that reason’s because I’ve been sick for a while, though.
The first of this set I already showed you back when I first made it, but the others I simply didn’t care as much for. In fact, Imma only upload the first two to my dA. I probably would’ve uploaded the fourth one too, but it uses images from Google that I’m not sure are free to use like that. The last one, even though I know for a fact that all it’s images are free, I still am pretty meh about it.. :B
Anyway, the first one is a book cover. Also the only one I had printed properly.
The second a picture for a tote bag. (It was near Halloween at the time, so the teacher encouraged us to make trick-or-treat bags.)Third is for a mouse pad…… Yes, I recycled this, and am soooo not happy with it… :’| It looks like a noob at Photoshop made it! Each assignment had requirements, so some of these turned super corny-lookin’ just to meet them.
Fourth is a card. These are some more of my fairy characters. I ran out of time, so I couldn’t add more silly make-shift clothes. :(
Last is a clock, of course! I was sad because I thought I had a super cool idea, but then it didn’t come out as I wanted it to. ;3;
Oh, almost forgot! The last pic is a candy wrapper. XD This was the only other assignment that gave us freedom to do whatever we wanted to. It was an in class assignment though, so we only had but so long to finish. This is so corny, I can’t help but laugh every time I look at it!(For those of you who don’t know, this was recycled from one of my other pics: dA - Tumblr)
Well, here’s some of the stuff I said I would upload. Sorry, I’ve been dragging…
But yeah, first is art from web design class. I didn’t intend to actually take it, but… stuff happened. XD I really liked the class though, learning about HTML and CSS was super fun. This final project is the only thing that was 100% my code, all the other assignments had us either copying directly from the book or applying what we learned from the lesson to a, like, quiz assignment. Okay, I probably didn’t explain that right..
Anyway, for the final project, I decided to make a portfolio site. If I had an actual portfolio of my own, I would like it to look something like this. :3 (Yes, I stole the color scheme from the one I made for Tumblr @x@)
Please excuse the silly censors, I’m still scared of the internet… :’D
The bubble thumbs do grow when you hover over them, and the last pic is just the blueprint I had before I started coding. I got most of what I wanted, but I couldn’t get the images in the home page to pop up. ;_; So instead, they just take you to their respective pages.
I’ve been watching a few videos by Sycra about color, and so far this one gave me the biggest epiphany. If that’s the correct way to put it… @x@
I feel so stupid because when I was redoing the color schemes of the Fruit Sprites about a year ago I was using pretty much the same principles he’s describing here, but I just didn’t fully realize it. Or at least I didn’t think to do the same thing when painting and such. Somehow I got it in my head that I could never use more than a very select few hues per pic, or else it would look ridiculous.. I don’t know.
Anyway, I wanted to practice what I learned, so I just drew a quick Swabawy. (I actually already did red and yellow last month.) I used SAI’s marker tool this time instead of the usual brush tool. I’m trying to give my other options a chance is all. I didn’t use any layers, so I feel pretty good about these! :D I’m also getting slightly better with contrast…
I still need to upload all I did for school and such, but I may not get around to that till Tuesday.
drrufussaverem asked: I love your Chibi model, it's great! :) I'm using it in a prototype of a game I'm making. Don't worry! Strawberries777 is being given credit for it. Thank you!
Ack, thank you so much! ;O; I’d really like to see the end result, too. :D
