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.
