-Tempest and her Sun- by Nashya -Tempest and her Sun- by Nashya
Okay this picture was really random. At least for me. Most of my art has something to do with one of my stories or is fanart or something. Today we get a CGed random sketch that I just happened to like a lot. I think my blue faze has ended, even though I wanted to use blue in the picture too, and I decided to go with some warm colors this time. I had the hardest time picking the color to shade with because it had blue in it. One thing I didn't want to do was have this cool/warm thing going on, on the actual character. I ended up using a blue/purple for the outer clouds to force your eye to the central figure. I used lots of purples, oranges, yellows, and some orange in this. There's a little bit of aqua in there too but it's not so apparent now. I really wish I knew how to render clouds better because I felt like I kept repeating the same pattern to show how puffy and voluminious they were. Oh well, this was good practice despite all of that and I REALLY like this picture. It makes me feel really warm. Reminds me of hugs from my mom. When my mother saw this she instantly said it reminded her of a womb. This really tight, but not closterphobically tight, warm, safe place. If the pic's composition seems kind of cramped to you that was intentional. I wanted to convey a really small warm place. But not make it uncomfortable. Hope I pulled it off okay.

All painter classic and 6. Took about 3 hours.

So beautiful. And although not originally drawn with the intention of recreating that feeling, the message was awesome. Fantastic.

This is truly the cutest thing I've seen. :( And the area really does look quite comforting. I was really taken aback when I scrolled down the page and this is what greeted me.

I love the way you do the coloring and the shading... It makes her skin look so soft and smooth.... and I just realized how creepy that sounded.

I didn't think the clouds were repetitive at all...you pulled off the sense of their billowy-ness and yet kept them from being too whispy looking, making that warm womb-like feel all the more present.

^^ Gives me warm fuzzy feelings that I wish reminded me of my mother.

i love how soft this is.. you're really good with painter. The warm colors were a good choice too, and i can see why your mom said it reminded her of a womb. It's an awesome pic.. random or not.

that's just awesome. I LOVE the concept...I really like how the clouds at her side and on top of the picture came out. I can honestly say you pulled off the whole nurturing, motherly, warm place you set out to do. You did a great job!

This made me want to finish my own picture lol
I'm +fav this cause I said so.

I really like it.I especially like the soft effects of the clouds around her. I really have to agree with your mom. Just looking at it for the first time I thought of the same thing. The closeness of everything in the picture kinda gives it that effect but it is more than that. The way everything is in the picture gives off a feeling of safety and warmth. She seems to be sheltering the sun she holds, and such.

And those clouds are just so soft and scrumptious looking!!! *wants to pluck one down and eat it like cotton candy ^.^* The way they flow around the figures head like hair is a really nice touch me thinks, she just looks so beautiful! Congrats! ;3

Wow, I can really see what your mom meant about it looking like a womb. It has that feeling that I love, of a small space that's just small enough to be warm and comforting and the right shape for you. :) Her left thumb looks a bit bendy, though?

The only brush I use is the water color tool set to small. In painter 6 I think it's the simple water or something like that. Depending on how much pressure you apply to your tablet, do you have a tablet by the way? CG is much easier with one. But sometimes it's hard to keep your brush work feather soft so try playing with the opacity. To keep the transparent look I worked with the opacity on about 15 so the color was really transluscent. :D Glad you like the pic. Hope that helps somewhat.
