So here's the traditional media version of an oekaki doodle I did a short while ago.


I did just use real paint for fanart.

This picture drove me crazy because, for one thing, I had no references. Usually, when I'm painting with real paint, I have a photo reference or a real thing sitting in front of me, telling me colors and values and, most important to me, temperature. In digital art, there are some things I, at least, can't create well and temperature is one of them. There's something about trying to create true temp. with pixels that just doesn't . . . work. That's also the reason this is a much stronger piece in person - your eye reads the temperature better and it's more interesting.

The other thing is, trying to photograph this picture so that the colors stayed true to the real painting was impossible. Mostly the thing turned out into this ugly, ugly red-orange photo- or it was way too light. Nothing that can be fixed with Photoshop, anyway. *Twitch*

I love these kinds of skies. ^___^

Trinity_FireAhhh~ oh goodness, this is beautiful~ *O*
Absolutely love the colors. Whatever you said, it turned out beautiful anyway. :3 Love the color of the sky in contrast to the black building and sky, and the awesome touches of colors at the edges of the trees~ also, really excellent street lamp lights. So pretty. :)

Papercut_DragonYay, you noticed one of the things I love best about this kinda sky - it's so bright, but the trees and buildings are so dark. ^__^

Glad you like it!
