pretty awesome. I prefer the black and white to the previous color one, but that might be my bias anyway. looks like you are definitely getting used to it as you say.

I assume the chess pieces (thanks for pointing that out Walter) are made of wood? if not then this is embarrassing. i recognized its a wood texture so its definitely not bad, but often the lines of wood run for much longer, and often wobble as they go around what were branches and stuff on the tree, leaving knots behind as the little circles you see. I recommend drawing a few circles/ovals and then drawing lines lengthways along the object, curving so you miss the circles. with every next line, try and miss the previous line so the wobbles become rather soft. Google "wood cartoon" or even "wood manga" to get some great reference points for simplification, or use real wood as a reference and try and copy that. Or use a wood texture which would look awesome.

I too am curious to what is going on, though :P

Just two quick questions about that piece, if you don't mind. Which way is the body supposed to be facing, and how do the shoulders connect to it? It might just be that the dress is really obscuring my view, but it's visually confusing to me.

Man, time flies so fast that I can't find myself in it at all :P. As always thanks for the comments. Last one came out a bit twiested because of the perspective :P.



Finally I managed to make another steampunk themed work :). This time spying fairies with light bubbles attacking the Cogwealth sisters, Amelia and Amy [my OCs] :P.
Colors done mostly by using the oil paint brush in MediBang - that's why it looks a bit chaotic - wanted to achieve something different than solid flat colors.

Hope you like it :)

Lovely piece and lovely steampunk :P
I think using the brush came out well, more like a painting than your usual works. maybe a bit more time with a smaller size brush will help to add more details and sharpen it up a little, but keeping the overall brushy feel. The background is very simple though, it should be nice to have a bit of scenery to make the piece feel more real. good job and keep it up.

Chaotic is a word for sure, but I'd go for "scratchy", which pairs really well with a steampunk theme, especially if it's a futuristic steampunk where all the copper and metals have been used for so long. I think the weakest bit is probably that the smoke/steam lacks its own depth. If there were a few more values added into it, it'd really pull the piece together. Right now, it's sitting there looking kinda flat, y'know? But I have to agree, the oil brush did a good job here, especially with the hair.

Many thanks. I really should focus more on details and depth I think. For the smoke, I made it on just one layer with one brush - looks like it wasn't enough.



Happy Halloween! Colors came out nicely :).
And it looks like I switched from GIMP to MediBang for good :P.

it takes a lot of time to get added details as you have to be a lot more careful and thorough. I always get impatient and want to finish the piece so I know it can be hard moving to a higher quality level :P

lovely Halloween one. cute little hat accessories :P

Jeez Daisetsu how do you colour like that. Really like how it all comes together. Put a smile on my face. You should sell postcards if you ever get the chance.

Love it!
