ART TRADE with *Mary-Ana for her friend *eliana55226838. The nature of this trade was unusual as Mary did not want a picture of her own character, but one for a friend as a 'pick-me-up'. How can I turn that down? I've liked Eliana's character for a while now and I must say it's hard as hell coloring something with more neon than my own characters x-x. Goodness the color-balance was hard. Anyway, I felt that her outfit reminded me of something very Art-deco inspired, so why not put that to work and make a neo-1930's image? This took a bit over a week due to midterms clogging my schedule, but this is one of the most rewarding images I've done, mostly because dat background. I have images of the full uncropped BG on my tumblr for those interested. Needed to mute some of the blue because it was making my eyes hurt (and that's a bad sign), but the final product is very fun.

Glad to do the art trade with ya Mary. You're a spectacular artist (and if i recall, this is the first art trade where I did not finish first, although she only beat me by 20 some odd minutes.)

Eliana, enjoy this. I know you will.

RIGHT I know I'm late but I still remember what I wanted to say on this.
I can tell you're very much getting into the anthro swing of things, and it's a wonderful take on the original artist's character! You pulled off the colouring very nicely as per usual, but I do have one thing I need to crit, and don't kill me because I know this image is a couple of months old and you're a speedy improver.
I mentioned before about how your anthro hair needed a little work, and this is certainly a great improvement on it, especially getting the angle of flow with it, however, in comparison to the shading work on the face and main body, it still appears lacking a a bit flat. It looks as though it just required more shading to round it off.
Still, a lovely piece, and a touching trade for someone to ask for their friends' character. Really goes to show you care more for content than art itself, which always shines in the eyes of the community! Well done Dan!

This, color wise is probably your best so far :)

I really like the glossiness of this picture :D It just makes the colors look that much better :D

Another thing that caught my hair is how you did her hair. It's like you can totally tell she's in action or the wind is blowing against her :D Dynamics, man, dynamics :D

Fav'd for sure :D

Now that I can see this on something that isn't a tiny mobie screen.

Can cettainly see why you felt the neon's were overpowering but the end result is magnificent, sure the neon stands out a bit, but I assume it is mean to and there is still a good amount of focus on her face and the overall pose.

but yes lovely job.

I use a translator percent.
My English sucks.

actually I have not a word to say what emocioanda descrivir and I'm so ...

ooooo my dear friend is really step it .. never expected that one of my favorite artists to come do chrystal and even more in its battle mode'm stunned.

forgiving is not able to comment, but it was in my work. I dont really happy all the time for this.

is seriously never expect it ...
hey read your description (what I understood) and I really admire that you like my art pathetic.

from experience is that this work will take a century devio, also worked on images that I take the same time.

I love her pose and the details as seen in the outfit you designed eh, I really like the battle suits having a beautiful armor and futuristic touches "tron" XD.

honestly, I can not tell you how excited and happy as I miss ... I hope you do not mind this comment so short. compared with the work that you carry devio this, really love it love it LOVE IT!

Voy a tratar de traducir esto en español para ti. Esta imagen era muy agradable de hacer. Te he seguido desde hace mucho tiempo porque me gusta tu arte. Me divertí dibujo Chrystal. Me alegro de que te gusta la imagen también.

Ustedes son bienvenidos.

flattered me what you say, I'm very happy about that.

nice of you to try to answer in Spanish, I hope the translator does not send a message so different to what I am writing.

eh I also admired his art as a long, but I took the comment you daring, thought, that might bother you.

I'm honest again, I'm very happy for her beautiful art. never thought you could reach out to interest my character.

I must insist thank for their work, because it is beautiful ..

I look forward to talking to you ... and get to make friends (?)

OH MY GOD.
Look at those effects damn it, this picture is so amazing! I seriously admire your coloring style and how much you've improved. The character looks so badass with that pose and expression, AND DAT BACKGROUND. I saw your process in tumbrl/twitter, and I must say i'm really REALLY impressed with the final result. This is FANTASTIC! skjfnskfjnsckjnkj

Well, even though you always stun me to death with your talent of giving so much life to a picture of yours, this... well wherever I look in this it's just glowing with life. Your anthro style is realy kicking in, that I am extremely impressed how much you've improved at that during such a short time (well not to mention you are always quick to improve). And geez... dat flow on teh hairssss. It's hard to not love this picture overall. Especially not when the background is made to fit perfectly with the character <3
Only some stuff bugs me with this picture, as *AbbieGoth said the thumb looks to be placed too far up on her hand. And the other thing would be that the tip of the hair looks incomplete due to it suddenly turns black without warning. Maybe it's just me being fooled by the lineart though :'>

Even so, this Dan... is gold.
Reply
:icondansyron:
DanSyron Featured By Owner Oct 23, 2012
oh the hair tips is due completely to the lineart. it got so narrow at the end that you just cant color it. The thumb problem is due to the lack of that line that shows its further down being hard to see, but that's my fault. thanks though
