I love it.

Why do I love it? The shading and lighting are well done, the hair/fur has the emphasis of movement (and nice detail) AND the choice of color palette is exquisite.

Not to mention the background does not remove focus from the main characters. Its the characters I see first and then the background silently fades in to give the overall setting.

Excellent work.

I would love to see the pen and ink version of this artwork :D

Sophie turns me on
NyahKitty Featured By Owner Nov 15, 2009  Hobbyist General Artist
Needless to say, this is quite well done. Especially the strong impression of photo realistic lighting, color and texture without actually being such.

Any tips on how to achieve this effect or tutorials which would help?
NyahKitty Featured By Owner Dec 31, 2009  Hobbyist General Artist
Nevermind, I found some of your previous posts regarding how you work step-by-step.

Speaking of background. That airport terminal looks familiar kinda looks like the San Francisco (SFO) airport here in California?

You've captured the emotion of this piece wonderfully. I can feel the sexual tension ;)

And please tell me you're kidding that this took you only a day. That would just depress me.
Aristodes Featured By Owner Aug 3, 2009  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Well... I'm not the artist... but it seems that you are correct. Sophie's eyes reveal her desire, but Desh seems to be less than enthusiastic...

It is almost unfair how good you are at what you do! You are an incredibly talented artist. It is unreal, some of the stuff you do.

Nightweaver20XX Featured By Owner Jul 9, 2009
It always amazes me how you think to put in all those fine little details, especially in the background, that 99% of artists (I've seen, at least) would never even consider. I mean that blue map in the b/g, WITH lettering, and the fully-legible telephone sign. I mean who thinks of putting their characters into such a "real" environment besides you? I can count them on one hand. Even the little tiny, almost-invisible access panel on the borders on the obsessive.

Some people have accused you of hiding your anatomy flaws behind a flurry of belts and buckles. I simply cannot see how that accusation can be valid. You know, I really do try to find flaws in your work every time you upload, just to spot something you missed, and to avoid making my comments sound like gushing praise.

Maybe the left concrete pillar could have a bit of bounceback reflection on the right side, and maybe the glass plates in the railing could have a few nicks or scratches. If anything maybe your coloring is too smooth, and needs more tiny imperfections to make the texturing more realistic. Tiny rips in clothing, loose threads, wear marks, I dunno. You're obviously good enough to draw what I'm talking about, and it's just a suggestion. Keep up the go(o)d work.
JayAxer Featured By Owner Jul 9, 2009
I like to simplify things (I know that sounds ridiculous, but I am serious). If flaws are put on everything everywhere then it begins to lose focus. Sometimes I enjoy the idea of nice, new things instead of everything being old.
haha, people have indeed said I hide behind buckles, blah blah..then I draw characters in skin tight simple outfits and such and then they don't show up to say anything. I do a lot of work, far more than I am allowed to post, and I put more thought into what I do than people seem to think. I draw out character's bodies and THEN put clothes on them to ensure it makes sense in form and function.
Maybe , in the end, too many people are used to seeing people hide behind random crap or they do it they jsut assume everyone else does too. Detail is not for detail's sake, you need to be able to do things well simplistically before you can do them well in complicated form.
Just what I think.
