  • Description: A request of my friend's character, Elaine. She has a ghost-cat companion... and rainbow hair.

    Colored in Adobe Photoshop, with a MOUSE. Ugh, it always takes forever to do that.

  • It's very hard to do rainbow hair, so it's not surprising that it translated poorly in cell-shaded style. ^^; The character design is, indeed, not mine, and the details (shoes, hair, the well-hidden knife strapped in a ready-to-draw position that's sticking out of her boot, and the indiscriminate garrotte in her pocket), were not from my own artistic license. Her leg IS actually slightly injured in this picture. ^^

  • cont.-

    also i can't see more than very small detail wrong with the knee-and i can't tell if they're actually mistakes or just normal details.

    that is quite the interesting cat o-o i do like the transparency of it though.

    i have to use the mouse too...so yeah, hard as hell it is...

    to sum up the rest "DAMN PERFECT!!!!!!!" lawl-nice job

    (too long of a commento-o)

  • nice detail and shading!! i do LOVE the rainbow hair although it does look a little rubbery (as someone else alreading said)
    but i have to totally disagree with the person directly below me(nanite4eva) those look like sneaker/hiking boots to me. ANd i like them.

  • To the commenter below.

    This was not her character nor her design! You also DO NOT tell an artist how to design people! It's a major taboo and very tactless. Despite you saying it wasn't meant to be, your comment was VERY rude indeed. Personally I believe you awe the artist an apology.

  • not 2 be rude, but i personaly dont like it. on the leg thats laying flat, it looks like theres a splint on her knee. you also gave her worker boots. why not give her stylish heels or skater shoes?? i dont like her hair. you worked too hard on it, and it shows. you should have given her one solid color instead of a rainbow. the leaves on da trees look like my little brother used a pencil on them, so u should work on that. her eyes and smile look overproccesed instead of layed back and casual.
