Le Bateau du papier by Fareons Le Bateau du papier by Fareons
This was originally made for a contest that's held every year at my school, wich gives away 75€ as a prize, so... I just couldn't afford not to give it a try. The contest is called "The paper ship" if somebody was wondering about it -wich is what the letters say, but written in catalan-.

I'm pretty happy about how this came out, but when printed the green colors -dunno why- get more mixed than what I'd like. Surprisingly, this did take some time, but less than waht I would expect. I guess I'm improving at that, heh. And at the skin. I mean, look. When I finished, I just couldn't feel more proud of myself.

Oh, and just don't pay attention to the non artistic letters at all at the bottom. Legal bases of the contest, you see.

Hope every one digs it, cause I do!

I like how you faded from Pink to Green, but I feel that you might want to repeat the pink somewhere near the bottom. Maybe a pink splat on the arm on the left.

It is a very beautiful piece :D

Hello from feedback club!

I like the colour cheme, one of my favorites)
Now, about what bothers me with that picture.
I think there's a problem with an empty spot behind her back. I would draw her legs too, to fit her in the picture or change the pose, so the legs won't be seen at all. Also I think you used too much techniques, that paper-hair style doesn't work with highly digital drawing, they are from different stories for me. I'd make it in more traditional way.
And, by the way, I really like the typeface and the way it's composed, envy you here))
Hope that helpes!

To be honest, about the legs thing, it was mostly a problem of lazyness... T.T

I'd love to paint the traditinal way, but, you see... I just don't have any tools for it :(

And I do like the paper+digital painting. Meh, now you made me cry.

Thank you for all!

Digital painting and traditional looking resorces? As far as I know, It's been already done many times, and I don't think it looks bad...

I mean, you can use some different traditional part. Not aquarel and newspaper. Or maybe differenet proportions of digital and traditional.
