Summer Ease by Swaja Summer Ease by Swaja
Finally I finished this piece I think I've fainted. This is an entry to :iconcici88:'s contest cici88.deviantart.com/journal/… . For the "don't let my hand" category. I really really hope that they look at least a bit similar to their original looks...  I tried... I'm also sorry if I forgot anything important Tears. Mahel seems like a really awesome character, her hair is very beautiful, that's why the contest caught my eye :)

And now for the drawing: I congratulate myself on making an actual BACKGROUND, it's like achievement of the year or something Clap , plus there are two people in the drawing w00t! . Besides the background which I'm proud of there are some mistakes of which I'm not that joyful. I was also afraid that I'm gonna screw up her hair by over detailing it, but everything turned out fine. The lake looks pretty too, though it's quite illogical for water in th forest to look like that... XD The lighting is a mess at places too and the general composition is not top notch either.

Maybe this drawing will cheer somebody who lives covered in snow by reminding them of beautiful summer daysRelax  . (Though there is no snow here... :( (Sad) )

This is almost half of the original size of the drawing. The close up swaja.deviantart.com/art/Close…

Party Also Happy New Year This is your brain; This is drugs; This is your brain on drugs!

This is amazing :) You should make a video about how you make such art from scratch ;)

Pff XD I'm so slow and distracted when drawing that I doubt it's possible to make a proper video of my drawing process D, but thank you :)

Well I could easily cut the scenes when you are away and scratching nose. :)

Heh XD, even without those scenes and with speeded up video the whole thing would be just way too long XD

So you saying you would need to record whole week? I would like to see how you even complete a tree.
I love your soft shading style.

Exactly XD For a drawing like this probably even more, though it would be nice to have a recording of the drawing process, so If I ever gonna draw something simple I'll try to remember this XD. As for the soft shading, well, I start with hard shadows for basics and then blend and blur them. The whole thing takes so long cause I usually use trial and error method with my strokes rather than drawing stroke on stroke to get what I want. I'm really glad you like it :)

Even simple tree or bush tutorial would be nice. Or you can provide your
knowledge source :) I will try to experiment on my own.
