Winter Hunt by Papercut_Dragon


I''ve been painting this all day, pretty much non-stop, and my eyes are fried. @_____@

Please please pretty please take two seconds of your life and view the detail here!

Ok! This is another painting that I did that was inspired by a famous artist''s painting - this time it''s Pieter Bruegel the Elder''s "Return of the Hunters."

Go look! Click!

And by inspired I mean I took pretty much the whole composition, lol. But this one of the few paintings I saw in ninth grade Art History 1 and cared about - it stuck with me for a long time.

And yes, I DID just draw Hitsugaya. Again. *Slinks off*

I did want to change the mood a little - this situation is a bit more threatening than hunters returning. So I changed the sky around; you wouldn''t believe what kind of difference that little strip of yellow sky made.

So is there a story behind this? Why are they out in the middle of nowhere with their swords out and ready? What''s with the dragons? I dunno! Go make something up. I''m gonna get away from this computer, ''cause my eyes are seriously dying.

About 15 hours, Photoshop, referenced Bruegel.

Papercut_Dragon(Love your icon!)

I don't get asked these questions too often, so don't worry. ^_^ And, this one is actually all Photoshop. I sketched, colored, did everything in that program. About 99% of my artwork is like that - if it's digital, it's all digital; if it's traditional media, it's all traditional.

Hope that answered your question!

Papercut_DragonPhotoshop is really expensive - I recommend either getting Photoshop Elements, or Paint Shop Pro. Paint Shop is a really good program to start out with, and it's afforadble. :)

Papercut_DragonYeah, dA took me a while to get used to - but I also had someone helping me out a lot. ^^;

And yes, yes they are. ^_^ In the original, there's SOMETHING flying around in the background - it even looks draconic. So I just went ahead and made it a dragon. :P

Pabbit_da_RabbitThat's very nice. I couldn't even tell that this was anime-based (which is a good thing!) It looked like such a fantasy painting. Done really well.

Papercut_DragonThe woman - she's got a very "sci-fi woman" pose, doesn't she? ^^; I blame all the sci-fi fantasy book covers I've seen. :P Glad you like it!

Pabbit_da_Rabbit on July 2, 2007, 5:58:45 AM

Pabbit_da_RabbitYeah. Definitely sci-fi. :)
