The Coming Storm by Flame-Shadow The Coming Storm by Flame-Shadow
Behold one of my greatest works yet!

I never realized just how easy it was to make clouds and how difficult is was to make water. Sorta strange when you think about it, right? =)

This picture is completely digital - the sketch, the figure, the background. I used [link] as a reference for my background, but I did not touch it in any way.

I am...stunned at how this turned out. I don't know what to say...honestly..

Comments are appreciated!

Drei, art (c) me
Zangoose (c) Nintendo
Reference for background (c) ~gijad

been smuding your way through clouds hm?;P kinda cool effect, personaly i prefer using brushes though, with water i can only recommend hrm..strong contrasts, not like ia m tooooooo good with water either, but i think the main lack of your ocean was the lack of contrast :3

either way i really just wanted ot say that i like your drai, and that you ought to do more of it XD

and happy late birthday or something XD dunno late well timed or soon..etc you know

Smudge-clouds are my way of saying that I'm not lazy! xD (not to say those who use brushes aren't, though! ^^;)
The water was a pain, and all I can say is.. yes, I could've done better, but I had already been working on it for hours and I'm not all that patient with backgrounds :P
the contrast idea is something I'll watch for when I next do a scene like this. Thanks~ :D

^^ Drei is my favorite character too, but I can't draw her in too many situations because of her role in my comic.. ;3

It was a couple days ago, but thanks anyway~ :glomp:

The clouds were simply made by messing with the Smudge Tool! It's ironic just how easy it is to make clouds that way! :D
