Feeling Bright Tonight by luckylace222


I attempted to draw something that was not yaoi for once. No wonder I feel a little empty inside. I drew this picture on a 2.5' x 1.3' mat board with watercolor, colored pencils, permanent marker, white-out, and orange/blue highlighter in my friend Stephanie's dorm room. I gave her a lot of mat board, and I had to get rid of it somehow.

This was the first time using watercolor on mat board. My friend Rori was like, "Instead of painting it one small stroke at a time, just get a big batch of it, and put it on there." I was like, "You are right!" so I mixed a whole bunch of watercolors together into a big bowl of water and splashed it all over the matboard. She screamed, "NOT LIKE THAT!" and I was like, "Shut up woman; I know what I'm doing!" -And SURE ENOUGH. I didn't. Haha. Watercolor noob!

Edited in Photoshop! Why is part of her hair purple?! GAHHHH! Now to do some unethical Medical Terminology! Everyone get your Mothers Day contest entries in! *shakes fist*

Tuntun422She's stunning.
My favorite part os this picture is the shimmering eye shadow across her face. 
That and her flower hair pin,( which in the very center of it looks like a meowing cat but I could be mistaken).

Well fabulous work as ever talk to me when ever you have a free moment.

luckylace222Awww, DARN, you found Koji! Now, I have to redraw him somewhere where others cannot find him. ;__;

Hah! I do not sell my art work because I AM TOO COOL TO MAKE MONEY. What you say to that?! HUH? lol

Ah! You "could" learn? You subconsciously learn something from looking at someone's art! I am already forcing my knowledge onto you with every piece you look at! I heard better shading/background techniques while looking at your art!

Thanks for the comment!

ZeroMidnightLOL I love reading your descriptions more than any other online artist, ha ha.

Absolutely gorgeous glowing effects. DEM LIPS. Soooo luscious and beautiful~ *immediate fave*


......I haven't made any sort of contest entry. OTL

luckylace222 on May 22, 2012, 6:34:15 AM

luckylace222 on
luckylace222I love reading that you read my descriptions! BURN

Thank-you- I was afraid her lips were a little too luscious. They seemed a little big to me. ;__;

No worries! There is always next contest. And next contest. And next contest. And all the other contests like those until I die. HOORAY! Having art-block lately or just not interested? i can spice my contests up a bit! P; I can have the losers jump off into a flaming pit of lava and the winners get a free night at AppleBees!

I don't know, I just seemed to have lost desires, I can't seem to sit down and try to draw something worthy anymore. :/

luckylace222 on May 22, 2012, 11:29:52 AM

luckylace222 on
luckylace222Do you happen to have some other personal obligation/obstacle occupying your mind when you attempt to draw, or is it just general frustration in your art?

ZeroMidnight on May 28, 2012, 11:40:51 AM

ZeroMidnight on
ZeroMidnightI don't really know..? It's been hard to draw for a while, but noticeably harder this year.

unknownX on May 24, 2012, 6:40:18 AM

unknownXWonderful colors. So nice and warm and the clip in her hair is my favorite. It almost seems as if her hair is glowing.

luckylace222 on May 26, 2012, 2:49:17 AM

luckylace222 on
luckylace222It did in fact make it so her hair could glow with that overdose of white-out!

I do not know why, but I thought your avatar was the same person in my picture for a moment there?!

Thank-you so much! It is great to hear from you again!

WH2007One of your best pictures! I love the brown-orange palette You've used. It gives the picture this melancholic, autumn feeling.

luckylace222 on May 22, 2012, 6:30:57 AM

luckylace222 on
luckylace222Thank-you so much! I actually drew this on brownish/tannish mat-board, so that explains the already infused brown pallet! However, I have this strange subconscious though that the mat-board was actually blue...why do I keep thinking that?

Yes, thanks you so much!

luckylace222 on May 20, 2012, 6:45:05 AM

*does it* Do you see the difference yet?

MadamePenguin on May 20, 2012, 6:51:56 AM

MadamePenguin on
MadamePenguinNot really...but just say that you kept it dark to give it an antique look or something I guess.

luckylace222 on May 20, 2012, 7:15:10 AM

luckylace222 on
luckylace222-But I did not meant it hat way-- *cries* Okay, I increased the brightness again. If you do not see it now, it will probably just take a day. P;

MadamePenguin on May 20, 2012, 7:18:24 AM

MadamePenguinI can see a bit more brightness and it's a improvement

luckylace222It took a long time- I can do that smooth skin color because the original mat board was tan already- I believe. ...Or maybe it was blue. Now I am confused.

luckylace222It is mat bard! It is always nice, textured, and smooth! people should draw on mat board more!! I suppose it works well with colored pencils...not sure about other mediums. I heard using acrylic on mat board just fades away after a while. HMMM

Anyways, OHOHOOO no, you are certainly NOT a watercolor noob! I notice from the way you color your pictures so simple without random drops and messiness everywhere that you are improving your water coloring skills (fast maybe? I will have to see more)! You should make a tutorial on how you watercolor so cleanly and what type of techniques/brushes you use!

luckylace222WHOA! Photofiltre is another free CG program! Wow, they just come out all at once- I only heard about them every once in a while when someone uses them. ;-; Is it a good program?

-Then you are good at making all that messy watercolor look neat with CG! YEAH!

kylaVegetaYes ma'mm! I shall work on it now. Oh my hummm I would say we can feel some of the romantic atmosphere in chapter 4. We can feel it but not them I think is a good way to describe it. XD

Yes, my friend Stephanie and Rori were coaching me on how to get this to look right (that is what happens when you draw in a cramped dorm room). It is so good to have spartan artist friends. *tears of pain*

I AM SURE YOU HAVE AN EVEN SEXIER NOSE Lizzy! Thanks a lot for the comment!

luckylace222 on
luckylace222NO! NO MORE FOR YOU! Just kidding- fix your grammar! *lecture*

I had to use PS to make some of those light spots pop out more, but it was mostly the whiteout that did the trick. Have you thought about using white-out on your own colored pictures (white-out pen to be exact)? It is convenient!

luckylace222 on May 15, 2012, 12:26:33 PM

luckylace222 on
luckylace222With the texture and color transition, probably not. The closest I have seen to that level of MSPaint detail is restless_dreamer, but even then, the pixelated texture of MSPaint can still be seen quoite well. Oh well, it is, in itself, a kind of pixel style anyways!

Rubius on May 15, 2012, 12:03:00 PM

Rubius on
RubiusI graduated this semester so no more school. Now I have to figure out what to do with myself. I've been going to school for 26 years and now I have no idea what to do with my time. Life keeps kicking me and I keep getting back up. Right now I'm just a little bundle of fear and indecisiveness. The entire thing has left me quite timid. I'm trying to get some drawings done, but it is a very slow process. I can do the pencil drawings, but when it comes time to ink and color, I kind of back away. I would love to make a comic, but don't think my comic skills would do my story any justice. I have been writing, but finding proofreaders is hard, and I when I look at a piece for as long as I have, I just start missing obvious mistakes. So if you know a good proofreader who wouldn't mind reading a few yaoi fanfic/novels let me know. :P
