Well, It's finally finished. I'm getting RSI from all those patterns, so I'll probably take a break from CG for a few days until my addiction catch up with me. I did two different backgrounds for this, because I'm not sure which one works better. I think the night background here works better, but the plain background seems nicer on the eyes when I did it, but it was plainer and not as striking.

But I think overall I'm very pleased on how this thing turns out. I was worried that the patterns would make the clothes look to flat, but in the end I think it looks shiny enough for my liking.

AACK!!! *wants to steal your coloring skills* how do you do that? you must have a ton of patience. The only medium that I have patience with is pencil, because I've been working with FOREVER, and, after you finish your sketch, no inking or coloring. :) I like it alot.

*watches you*
deathtotheroses Featured By Owner May 31, 2005
Wow this is gorgeous. I love the whole piece, the background makes the picture more fluent. I love how she seems to flow entirely. Plus the colour selections is varied but done in a pleasing manner... keep this up.

I think the pose is the strongest point in this - it's unusual but in a good way. Like, it could easily look awkward but I dunno.. She still seems graceful.
The costume design is also mad :)

I got one anatomy critique though - the knees seem a tad too tapered-in. Everything else seems great! I like the green touch on the moon!

Serio555 Featured By Owner May 22, 2005
I am making some CG tutorial on basic colouring, but as far as making it shiny and colourful I guess it's just a matter of contrast, and it's not really something that has a rule to it.
MikuRini Featured By Owner May 22, 2005
oh really will u teach me? ive never ever had an art class and always wanted one so i do not have to learn always on my own and if u have suggestions on any of my drawings on how to perfect them please i am all ears!!!!!
Serio555 Featured By Owner May 22, 2005
well, my tutorials are available on my page/journal; but if it's about colours and contrast I'm afraid it's not that simple to teach - it's something you need to learn and develop the 'feel' for it yourself. I suggest you pick up a book on colour theory, because there's no easy way to put it in a few sentences. But the bare basics is that you need to understand light contrast, saturation contrast, and temperature contrast. Temperature contrast is often the most visible and need to be planned more than the other two. Saturation contrast gives a bright colourful effect when used in shading, while light contrast is the most obvious and depends on the intensity of the light source. Which contrast to use and how much contrast to use will determine the 'feel' of the picture.

I've never had an art class either (I'm a chemist, after all), but there are plenty of books on this subject, so read up. Then once you've understand a little more on how colours work, look at your favourite pictures by your favourite artist and try to analyse how they use and combine colours. Don't just think "it's pretty", but consider how much and what contrast there is? How far apart are the colours in the colour wheel? What is the mood of the picture? What combinations of colours did he/she used? Which colours gives what kind of feeling? How does the colours work with the composition?

And there really is only one suggestion I can make: keep on practicing. To put it bluntly, as much as I'd like to help, I don't have time to write a 20 page essay on this, and there are already plenty of books out there which explains it much better than I can. You don't need classes to learn. You just need to know how to learn, and that's not something anyone can teach since different learning method works for different people.
