Cherry by Namie-kun Cherry by Namie-kun
<edit>By procrastinating my 1000 word essay i havent started on, due in three days, i have tried my best to edit a few things according to the crit i received [8D;;] Okay okay okay... I AM studying for real now.. orz;;</edit>

W-w-w...what am i doing while i have all this homework?... orz

Mixed around with Photoshop and Sai this time//<3 The brushes are really smooth~. This is the first picture that's completed with sai, that's not a speedpaint. [but then again, the bg is practically speedpainted OTL]

It was originally Miku fanart-some-what-inspired by Makoto Shinkai;; A bit messy, and not a detailed as i planned it to be, but i think it turned out okay since i am a pink-tard [:'DDDD]

btw, i always re-use the same dress design in my pictures for some reason OTL

SPEAKING OF SPRING. THE SPRING ANIME TIMETABLE SUCKS. I was sooo looking forward to Pandora Hearts, Tayutama and Higurashi three, but they are all so-so. I looked around and my watch list is only around 5 series; [which is small to the usual 10]

K-on, Hetalia and Eden of the East are win though.
I miss jigoku shoujo.. and, and.. NATSUMEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE [;_;]

I will study for real this week, so I'm taking a hiatus until things clear up;

and I will get though those who wanted a visit eventually --!!.

Did somebody say, Makoto Shinkai? :XD:

Makoto Shinkai is someone I highly respect for his stunning stories and movies. This piece sure reminds me of them. M. S. has this thing for cherry blossoms and there's always some in his movies.

Anyways, the cherry blossoms were done in great detail in here. The piece also gives a nice sense of depth because of the falling cherry blossom petals, giving the character a nice focal point.

The colors are so soft that it gives a nice pleasant feeling to it. Very relaxing. So calm and peaceful, that it makes you feel like you are going through a quiet stroll in the park. That's how i feel about this piece anyway. ^^'

a 5 out of 5:star: from me, good job =Namie-kun :heart:

Thank you for portraying a beautiful piece that will amaze Makoto Shinkai himself. :heart:

Now if you'll excuse me, I'm going to go work on my art before my inspiration is gone
What do you think?
The Artist thought this was FAIR
16 out of 22 deviants thought this was fair.

First off i am going to say that i just adore this picture. It's beautiful. I love the overall feel of this picture, how happy she looks how windy it is, the warm colors, it's all to perfect. what i love most is her clothes, the reason i say this is because very many artist struggle to bring clothes to life and you did this perfectly here.

unfortunately this can't be called a critique if i tell you only the things i love a bout this picture.

First of i see is her left leg it seems to appear a bit bigger than the other, even though it is slightly turned it needs to have more depth near the ankle, and above the knee, it seems like the knee isn't very defined.

second i think there needs to be more of a shadow under her feet, (I'm sorry it's hard for me to explain).

This is really all the critique i can give you since I've never given any critique, to anyone, and i am not a professional my self.

No one will have the same views, i might not see things others see, but one thing is sure just keep practicing and keep up the wonderful work you are improving.

i really like this but the eyes are a bit to big don't you think? if they were up to where the shading started this would look even better!
camachopaola Featured By Owner Apr 5, 2010
So amazing! It looks like it took a lot of work and dedication (not to mention the experience) how long did it take! The air effects give it a nice 'cool breeze' type aura, and the girl looks so calm yet happy! It was also a smart idea to use green and pink, they really compliment each other here, though the girl kinda blends in to the background with the pink hair, although with her light skin and green dress she pops out! Great picture!
