Rose by Plaguey Rose by Plaguey
Rose from Dragon Crisis.

Although I didn't enjoy the anime, I though Rose was cute .w. but my lack of being able to draw kawaii desu desu female characters prevented me from making a good Rose. I also enjoyed her because her name was my middle name I'm so easy to appease I started working on this in July ish, after I finished watching the anime.
For the fire, I tried to do it with the air brush on a normal layer, but it looked like lava, so I kind of just end over it with a luminosity layer and it looked better, but still pretty bad e_e
I also put this into Photoshop and found the Lens flare option, and kind of spent an hour abusing it lol.

But anyways, I'm back for now. I'm gonna try and keep my time on dA to a minimum since it is a major distraction to me Just like Kingdoms at War . And today hasn't been to kind to me, so I felt like uploading .w.

Took me about... 30 hours for anyone who wonders.

the colouring is great, but her face is totally wrong...you put the eyes-nose-mouth too low...it's like she has the eyes on the cheeks! I've noticed you tend to do this in every picture...your colouring ability is seriously amazing but you need lot of practice on the anatomy. try making some realistic art observing people or trying some manga-styled tutorials on the internet.

It's been a thing I've finally noticed recently .w. and I am trying to fix my habit of it. Thank you for your suggestion, and I'd like to mention I have been drawing more realistically for the past few weeks to solve this >w>
But thank you ~

Well I actually think your flames are amazing. I was going to ask how the hell did you do them before I saw your comment about how bad you think they are bad!

I just don't like how they seem really flat, Like I enjoy how I did the flames compared to one of my older pieces

But I did the flames using paint tool SAI using mainly the pen tool at 100% density, I used a luminosity layer overtop of all my layers and did the outline of the fire and then blended the inside of the outline, and then I added more inside the outline with a lower density. Thats basically all I did .w.

It should work with photoshop. I don't know if I can tell you how to do it though, since I really don't use photoshop for my paintings.

Wow, this turned out great! The fire complements her hair and dress nicely. The hand looks amazing too. I feel like the eyes should be higher up on the head though, i think they are too close to the nose. Thats really the only thing that bothers me, the rest looks absolutely amazing

I was trying really hard to get the right contrast in light because of the first but I think proper facial proportions are something I need to work on.

I looked up a tutorial but I didn't work for me, so I used kind of a golden colour and made a luminosity layer and used the water colour tool to make it kind of blend better, and then above that golden one, I used a purple colour and used that in certain places on the fire and turned down the opacity of the layer .w. and I also changed levels and stuff using photoshop.
But it was kind of easy but time consuming.
