Here's something my brother's girlfriend requested like two months ago, and only two days ago did I finally finish it. I don't know why it took me forever, maybe it was the fact that I added too much detail, or that I only used MS Paint since my printer didn't have any ink and I wanted to finish it in time for my first art show ever. Anyway there's some hearts in the background and even in their skin, but there's some that you have zoom in to find.

restless_dreamerAww thank you, that really means a lot to me! : ) Lol I kind of just look at a photograph and just go at it, no I guess I have a technique. First I sketch out every single detail in black, using the pencil tool or smallest paintbrush, then I use the fill with color tool for all the large areas. After that I move on to smaller and smaller areas getting rid of all the black sketch lines with base colors.

Getting the colors is really simple when I use a reference, if I'm not using one I use a three tone color system paying attention to where the lighting is coming from. But if I am all I do is use the color swap tool on each tiny minuscule spot from the original reference zooming in as much as possible and coloring it onto mine. Lastly I used a program called photostudio to make the colors more vibrant than the reference. I’m so glad you like the trees, did you find the hearts in them? I tend to think I still over detailed the background but oh well I always got to drive myself crazy with how much of a perfectionist I am.

restless_dreamerHey I'm so glad you like that idea! You should check out my other more focused picture find-> "In subconscious mind". By the way they did like it, and they've been together now for like 3 years, happiest couple I know.

Kairoshumashoot! i swear thats a picture! the only thing that isnt perfect -no critisizm intended- is the trees! and just by a little bit! oDo

restless_dreamer on April 1, 2011, 2:09:20 PM

restless_dreamer on
restless_dreamerThank you and hey no problem I love constructive criticism, and yes I know the trees are messed up but that was on purpose to add some "hidden" hearts in them even though there are a few that are way too obvious.

restless_dreamerHey thanks sooo much for another comment, but I'm sure if you keep practicing you can draw in ms paint just as good if not better than me.

DoctorWill on
DoctorWillOh my god.

I don't say this about a lot of work, but THIS, is simply amazing. I had to stare at this for a good few minutes before I could convince myself this wasn't a photograph.

Its great, it far exceeds anything I have ever compiled on MS paint, and a good portion of the things I've been able to make in Correl Painters.

This is a thumbs up and a Fave from me, keep up the EXCEPTIONAL work

restless_dreamer on December 6, 2010, 2:43:03 PM

restless_dreamerWow gosh thanks so much for such kind words, and the fav as well. :)

restless_dreamerHaha really? Nicely put by the way, I myself have too many idols like that. Although I don't know if you should idolize me the professional procrastinator/insane perfectionist. Anyway thank you for the feedback, I really appreciate it! ;)

restless_dreamerYep it sure is, and so very easy to use, although it can be a bit time consuming. Anyway thanks so much for the comment! :)

Oakstar123HOLY SHIZ. When I saw this in my friend's favorite's, I thought it was a photo! And on MS PAINT???? HOLY CRAP THATS GOOD!!!! Only 9 faves, is FAC retarded or something?? This is sooooooooo amazingly good!!!!

restless_dreamer on August 9, 2010, 2:38:21 PM

restless_dreamer on
restless_dreamerHehe thanks so much, I'm glad you like it! :) But it doesn't really surprise me that much since I don't spend much time on here to leave many comments on others' work and a lot of people have flocked to deviantart and probably don't really go on here anymore.

Oakstar123 on August 9, 2010, 2:48:02 PM

Oakstar123 on
Oakstar123lol I know what you mean. I flocked over there too, but got banned because of my age. <_<"" So I'm spending a year here while I wait for my 13th birthday XDDDD I'm gonna try to stay actve on here too

And your welcome :)

YutaToo much detail? I think it looks superb this way! I especially
like how you decided to hide hearts and how you coloured the hair.
They look like such a happy couple~

restless_dreamer on August 5, 2010, 2:29:22 PM

restless_dreamer on
restless_dreamerHey thanks for the comment, and I'm super glad you appreciate the detail and hearts! Yeah they really are the happiest couple I know.

killerrabbit05 on
killerrabbit05That is just INSANELY amazing looking... There's so much killer detail in in, and just looking at it from a bit of a ditance, I could swear it was a photograph or something! You've even managed to make the shadows and lighting look so spot on!
You're just so freaking amazing with this kind of art!

restless_dreamer on June 30, 2010, 11:15:13 PM

restless_dreamer on
restless_dreamerLmao calm down and gosh thanks, although I need to get better at doing it quicker by not getting sick of the tedious detail right away. That or not include every tiny color/detail I see zoomed in on the reference photo.

killerrabbit05 on July 1, 2010, 9:17:59 AM

killerrabbit05 on
killerrabbit05LOL sorry! It's just nice to see something so detailed. I'm sure it gets difficult to sit down and do this for extended periods of time... But that you manage to even do it at all is a feat in and of itself!

restless_dreamer on July 1, 2010, 3:40:22 PM

restless_dreamer on
restless_dreamerThat's more than fine thanks again, so did you find all 17 hearts?

killerrabbit05 on July 1, 2010, 4:43:54 PM

killerrabbit05 on
killerrabbit05Only 12 so far...

restless_dreamer on July 3, 2010, 6:13:26 PM

restless_dreamer on
restless_dreamerReally try zooming in as far as possible lol

killerrabbit05 on July 7, 2010, 2:11:06 PM

killerrabbit05 on
killerrabbit05I found 'em all! :3
That never gets old...

yuai77Awesome Job! Found all but two hearts! XD

restless_dreamer on July 7, 2010, 3:01:26 AM

restless_dreamer on
restless_dreamerWhy thanks for the great comment, fav, and especially for looking for the hearts. :)

luckylace222 on July 6, 2010, 11:02:59 AM

luckylace222 on
luckylace222Your brother's girlfriend is such a pretty girl! I love a couple that can smile readily! Hopefully, they smile like this without a camera in front of them!

I really thought this was a photo. I thought it was manipulated, but then I had to remind myself that this is you, and there's no way you settle for less. BEAUTIFUL details. Your details just might be your signature. ;P


restless_dreamer on July 6, 2010, 12:37:25 PM

restless_dreamer on
restless_dreamerYeah I know it makes me sick lol, but no she's really nice too and yeah of course they do smile when there's not a camera. In fact they're probably the most perfect couple I know in terms of how they get along all the time. Haha yeah I can't settle for less until the point of almost going crazy lol and yet still can find one thing wrong with this. Although it's only one thing usually it would be at least three or more. Yeah detail should be my signature, I thought for sure you too would think hearts were instead. Anyway friend sorry for blabbing on and on forever and thank you for the lovely kind words, I'm glad you like this piece too! :)

restless_dreamerHahaha well when I took the reference photo they were actually that happy. I guess I just took the photo at the right time and managed to transfer that into the drawing as well. :)
