Growth - Sahara by jade161588 Growth - Sahara by jade161588
Theme 02 - Growth

Why is this for my theme growth? Well it's because my friend on dA (~Scots-Angel) commented on my [link] [Calm Before the Storm] piece and said I was growing. With that, I realized that my next piece (which was growth), should be of random work that shows how much my art has progressed since the early ages two years ago.

For that, I dedicate this to the artist who drew it (~nyan-nyan)and ~Scots-Angel. Thankyou both in different ways.

Oh and another thankyou to *augustc4 for teaching me about curry brush. I cheated a little but I'm allowed, yes? I used mouse, after all.

Woooow, you're really good. I use mouse too and I have never been able to get it like that.
I thought you had a tablet though?

This picture was done before I got a tablet... but it doesn't matter now because it broke :(

Aw :(
Even so, you do a great job without it, even though it's such painstaking work.

I really like this picture. I guess somehow I missed it. O_O Anyhow it's really good. ^_^ I really like the costume design and the colors. She looks really good. I really like her expression. Good job on this! ^_^

:P It's too bad it's not my lineart. I think this was my first colored submission from lines I found in *color-me-club. I attempted the "Spicy Curry Brush" and despite the fact I didn't own a tablet yet, it worked out... sort of. Execution could have been handled better but I really could say that of all my works. Glad you like it though. I'm guessing it was lost in my "Everything" gallery after I arranged it.

Actually, I only colored this girl. I colored on photoshop. I don't know what the creator originally used to draw though.

I adore the colours and clothes. The skirt and boots are just amazing. All the tiny details that must have taken forever are really great. Awesome work :clap:

You chose the perfect colours. The orange/peach top compliments her skin tone and really brings out the colour in her eyes. Nice job :D

The shading is good too.

That's an amazing job. The lineart is gorgeous, but what really pulls my attention is how beautifully to colours blend together. You did a great job, congrats!

^_^ Thanks so much :D

You know the site that comes up on deviantart ads about manga revolution? I went there and found a tutorial called Spicy Curry Brush. It's meant for tablet, but if you put enough time in, you can do it with mouse. Mine came out looking this way using the Spicy Curry Brush with a few adjustments. It was fun coloring it. And to think I'm actually partially colorblind XD. I do love the colors too. It's very earthy. :D

Thankyou. ^_^ I'm very glad I got it to look like it did with my satisfaction using only a mouse. Took about four hours though... x.x
