FINISHED \o/.
Feels good to upload something other than an ACEO for once. The scanner ruined the colors, sob. (Especially the purple). Also had to scan it in two parts because it's bigger than A4. If I find a way I will make a new scan someday!

Mitsunari and Sakon are always so much love to draw :love:

I didn't count the time this took me, I'm sure I'm somewhere over 30 or 40 hours. No opaque white used this time! Only pencil for the sketch and watercolors.

If you like you can see some steps on my tumblr:
CLICK!
Here you can also see that the purple is more intense in reality...sigh! Somebody teach me how to scan properly...

Enjoy!

Thank you so much! I'm glad you think so.
At the moment I'm mostly offering sketch commissions, but I'm also free to do some other work, so if you are interested have a look at my journal [link] or just drop me a note (: Thank you!

Even with the scanner "ruining" the colors, I can definitely tell that you have put in many hours into this piece. The detail in this is fabulous!!

I'll see! I've been wanting to to one for a long time now...orz. Maybe I'll try with an ACEO, they are small and nice, maybe it works.
On my tumblr you sometimes can find some step-by-step pictures. I don't know if they are of help, though >_<

Aww thank you! It honors me that you'd like to order a commission! I might be reopening my ACEO-Commission slots very soon, but I'm also thinking about offering bigger commissions, like maybe A5. If you are interested, you can always send me a note, even if I don't have any open slots atm.

I guess it's really one of the drawbacks of trad. art...but can't be helped. I'm really too lazy to adjust the colors. It's tedious.

Scanning colored works has always been my bane, too. ^^; The usual problem with tweaking brightness and saturation is that it fixes one set of colors, but messes up the others. Same goes for adjusting color balance. What you can do is use the eyedropper tool to select specific areas of color that you want to fix. Or mask out ares you don't want to be affected. You can also try selecting areas into different layers (like one layer for skintones, one layer for the background, etc) so you can adjust the colors on each area separately.

Exactly. To be honest I also thought of the thing with selecting the colors, but I'm too lazy most of the time orz.

Oh wie schön *____* Ich liebe es, wie du Tiefe erzeugst, das könnt ich den ganzen Tag ansabbern. Und es macht so schöne Kontraste! Hier mag ich auch ganz besonders die Aquarell-Strukturen unter der Farbe, das sieht richtig edel aus. Ganz zu schweigen von dem Blau, das setzt dem ganzen noch die Krone auf. Und die Ornamente, vor allem ganz unten und in Tonos Rüstung! Hach! :love:

Die Rüstung hat mit am meisten Spaß gemacht, ich mag immer, wie es dann nach und nach plastisch wird.
