Journey to the Future Cover Art WIP 2 by FaeHime Journey to the Future Cover Art WIP 2 by FaeHime
Another look at the Cover for the awesomely awesome fan fic: Journey to the Future!

Finished doing everyone's skin, eyes, hair and clothes are all that is left... decided not to take my pain meds so I could function enough to get something done =_= I'm not good at this "waiting to recover" thing...

Anywho, like I said, this is just a work in progress, so everyone tell me what you think!!!

Looks so good!!! I'm so excited to see the final product! But don't skip out on your pain meds!! I'd rather this take another few weeks than you be hurting!

Did you use the burn tool? *narrows eyes suspiciously* Because if you did, bad *FaeHime, bad! *squirts naughtily*
Shadow has more colour, especially the one I see you trying to create. Purples and blues should likely make up the shadow.
That said, your understanding of anatomy is always fantastic, and I like the way you've made the shadow give the illusion of those muscles, especially in Kagome's forward hand.

Looking forward to more! ONCE YOU RECOVER! *bundles you up and holds*

=_= I no use le burn tool.

I actually did all the flats, then created a duplicate layer in gray-scale a couple of shades darker than the flat, used a soft brush at 50% opacity and 3% flow to pains on the midtones and high lights, colorized the result, used color balance to ad blue tints to the shadows and yellow to the highlights, created another duplicate layer, set teh bottom duplicate layer to darken and the top one to hard light and then merged visible. :iconorzplz:...burn tool indeed!

:iconinucryplz: It actually WAS way more purple and blue in the shadows and I reduced teh saturation cause the effect was kinda overwhelming with the blue background... but now I wanna go back and change it again... :iconinusadplz: I... I has failed...

Why would you do it that way? Maybe its just my history with painting, but you should really always do the colour that you want to use, rather than going to such pains like that. I imagine your way takes a really long time. Do you do it that way all the time?

I wouldn't say you've failed, silly. It's probably because you aren't done - I've never seen a WIP from you before like this. Don't lose heart, precious thing.

You gotta remember, I'm only using my track pad~ for soft shading, which I'm not really that practiced at, I had have to make adjustments. This actually saves me time, believe it or not, because I don't have to worry about going back and blending and generally gives me a better range of intermediate colors between my base color and the shadow.

Honestly, it takes me about as long as it does to cel-shade, but for this piece I wanted to go with the smoother look, and I just shied away from the cooler shadows when I was working yesterday :iconinushiftyplz: I went ahead and made a layer with the cooler shadows, and I'll post it up in a second so you can let me know which you think looks better. :iconinuheheheplz:

And while it doesn't take much longer, it does take a lot more effort and can be a tad tedious is the repetitiveness. So when you said it looked like I had used the burn tool it was like :iconinsultedplz: "What you just say?" and then :iconshockplz: "Oh gods, it kinda does!" followed by :icondepressedonionplz: "I'll go back and fix it later..." followed by :icononionwoeplz: "Stupid soft-shading... stupid medication... shoulda stuck to the stupid cel-shading..."

My inner critique had a field day basically lol :iconinumeowplz: Then I shook it off and was like :icondeterminedplz: I GOT THIS! I'll keep at it til it is worthy of being looked upon! With this, it shall only become BETTER!!!

:iconinuwinkplz: So thanks! I really do appreciate the honesty, as it helps me make my work even better! There's just that damn, knee-jerk reaction of failure to bog through first lol XD

Ahh, no problem? XD I was starting to worry I was being too harsh with you, but a part of me was like: "No, not with my Laura. She can take it!"

And you can ;D

:iconinushiftyplz: Yay for rambling! And yes, always be brutally honest with me! :iconinurainbowplz: I got this!

Besides, how else will I grow and improve! I trust you not to be mean or say something without reason! :icongwompplz: Besides, you are a better colorist than me... I'd be foolish not to take your critique to heart! :iconinuilikeitplz:

I took art classes in undergrad, and my high school was a magnet school~ NO SPORTS AT ALL~ we just had strands, and I was in the Visual Arts strand :) So I've only been dabbling in digital coloring and stuff for about the past 5 years, and even then I tend to do more traditional stuff! It's just so large, it's impossible to get it scanned in and I only recently got a good enough camera to be able to take pictures to post :) I'm planning to start posting up my non-fan art works this summer after I dig them out of my portfolios and get some good lighting! XD
