Miss Sidhe's Fanart [UPDATE] New Sketches

Postby Miss_Sidhe on Tue May 09, 2006 3:18 am

Hokay, excuse the hugeness. This is what I've been working on recently.

Image

Sad, crying Nanase.

Why is she crying? Well as you know the amount of confusion thats currently going on in the potential relationship between Ellen and Nanase is likely to wind up anyone. Nanase likes Ellen a lot but at the moment nobody is making any move. So these are frustrated tears as well as tears of doubt as various insecurities in regards to Ellen actually liking her back arise in her mind and make her doubt herself for a moment.

Theres a quote that inspired this sortof: 'Just because there are no tears on the outside, does not mean its not raining in the soul'

I think this applies very well to Nanase. Usually she puts on a big front of being tough and macho and uber sexy and as if nobody can touch her. But I think behind closed doors where nobody can see, she cries like anyone else. She doubts like anyone else.

P.S her eyes are like that because they're half closed. I know that japanese people don't have that exaggerated slants to their eyes so please don't presume I was trying to be insulting about the race.

P.P.S If she looks too old......eh....all my reference pics do sorry. Its just something you'll have to deal with.

Go forth and comment :D

There's probably something wrong with the link as the image doesn't show in the post :(

However I went to your deviantart account and saw it there: wow, you are really good, I love the colours, expecially the hair (who doesn't love redheads after all? :wink: ), and her expression! Poor sad Nanase...

I am curious, how do you do your art? I mean, do you paint the image with actual oil/watercolours, or rely on some software?

Anyway, thumbs up 8)

EDIT: whoa, just as soon as I posted my comment you fixed the problem! You're like a little ninja :wink:

:o oh my gosh, you really have a lot of patience.
I sometimes colour drawings with Photoshop but I don't even have the patience to do some simple-quick-and-flat shading... :nervous:

Using a mouse to color in Photoshop...
I know what that's like. (Uhg...)

Despite that, it looks great.
I've got to ask, what tools do you use?
From what I can tell, it looks like you use different shades. (As opposed to blending modes or dodge/burn.)

I wish I could color like that...

The main tool I use is just the paintbrush set to various sizes and various opacities. For the hair I used the smudge finger. The tears were done via a special tutorial I have for painting water drops on surfaces.

Wow...just wow... It's rare for me to be blown away by something that someone has done (hell, Lommy needs to egg me on to take a look in an art thread). But something drew me in, and it knocked me for dead.

I bow to you for showing this, for I ma really without words to say what I feel about your image. It is beyond words I fear.

:o Awesome. Utterly awesome. And I'm not misusing the word in this case; I literally mean that it inspires awe.

This is heart-rendingly beautiful. She looks just like I would imagine a realistic Nanase would look. The eyes look great -- I could immediately tell they were half-closed, and they didn't look strange or exaggerated at all. The cheekbones and other facial structures are amazing in their degree of detail and realism; the breasts look natural and three-dimensional; the hair is somewhat stylized, but gorgeous.

I am blown away. Please, please do more EGS art!

I discoverd that some Tablets by Trust, are cheaper than Wacom.. unless you're a Heavy user of one it will work brillant. http://www.trust.com/products/productgr ... rp=TABLETS

I had a few seconds before I realised it was Nanase, but Wow. I'd guess she'd just closed the door to her bedroom, and in the process of letting herself go.

Eh I had a tablet before but I didn't really like it so I sold it again and went back to using a mouse. I prefer using it that way. Same as I prefer using Photoshop 5.5 as opposed to some of the newer more fancy versions. Sometimes you've just gotta stick with the classics
