Ocean by Tori001 Ocean by Tori001
yay, Kira in the ocean! i really, really like how this turned out. Kira, doesn't look creepy anymore, right? haha, i'd sure hope not because i think this looks adorable. i can't tel if i really like how i did the water or if i hate it. hmm, you guys don't think it looks weird, do you? i'd hope not! it took forever! FOREVER! i drew every shine of water my hand and even had to do all the glow effects on sai instead of photoshop so that made it take even longer. the sky took about two seconds (and it shows . . .) and everything didn't take too much time. i really think this is the best yet. then again, i usually say that! but seriously, i've always wanted to draw a decent beach picture and i've tried so many times and i think i finally succeeded. do you think i did?

i was originally drawing this so i could use it for the hair tutorial i'm working on, but i realized its not showing that much of her hair so i decided that wasn't a good idea. hey, if you have a character of yours that you would like me to do a headshot of, i can do that for my tutorial! hurry up and tell me if you do.

And your water looks fine, much better than anything I could manage..the far end of it looks a bit..strange since the lines are so white yet, but, not horrible or unrealistic.
: D
Very nicely done

I thought you were gonna do Shadow for the hair tutorial...
Reply
:icontori001:
Tori001 Featured By Owner Jul 19, 2012  Professional General Artist
of course i am. i'm doing two parts to it. the first is just for basic straight hair, the second is for curly hair, hair with highlights, etc. shadow will appear in that one.
