Still with me (Seven Lions remix) - Tritonal

Well, it looks like it was about time for me to try the 'draw it again meme' here on dA. I did have alot of people saying I have improved but I didn't really find myself convinced of it. Therefore I decided to do it and really feel that I've come along way. In the spirit of things, I decided to take an image from approximately 2 years ago (not even as it was uploaded Oct 24, 2010) and give it the ol' DS treatment.

Original poopy image:


This is what we have and quite honestly I'm scared over how different they are. @_@.

This proves alot of things to me, but I'll write that in the meme itself. This was loads of fun and shows me that I'm very far along in comparison to 2010. Heh, just a few short years.

Thanks to everyone who attended the LS, It means alot with your support. I probably wouldn't be anywhere close to this level if it wasn't for you guys.


"Doubt.... it is the only barrier that stands between man and triumph. It is a wall that must be torn down solely by determination and bravery. Once this wall falls, any challenge... any obstacle can be overcome.... let us all pray we can overcome this doubt and get the chance to dream before we are forced to awaken." ~Kaius Grey

I'm gonna get the next pic planned asap.

ps: thanks to *Togekisser for some redline help. Muzzles are srs bsns

Critique by duolover22 Oct 7, 2012, 2:15:03 PM
I hope this will be an adequate enough critique. I honestly love this piece. Everything about it is just so well done. The shading, the color choices, and the originality is just perfect. A HUGE improvement over the original. It's not hard to see your growth as an artist. Even the minute details like the lighting coming off the character's hand, the energy collecting in that spot. Even the rips in the character's clothing is better.

As for the background. I like it, the setting sun and the colors that melt together are amazing, but part of me feels like there's something missing. Maybe something that gave a bit more of an impact. Or maybe I'm just missing the intended feeling behind the piece.

The character is completely unique. I didn't even notice at first that his fur kinda transitions into a diamond looking spike. That's pretty cool, and I love the glow affects. It's really hard to see someone that is able to achieve that affect without damaging the work around it. A lot of times I see a smear attempt in maybe a club setting, or a character with bio luminescence, but it just isn't executed properly. Comes out looking more like someone spilled some extra paint and someone tried to clean it up.

This actually looks like it's glowing from within the character's body itself. It doesn't ruin the background, or any part of the character. You can tell the artist paid a lot of attention to detail. You actually cared to make a significant improvement over the original work and didn't just take the meme and slap something basic that barely showcased what you're actually capable of.

Good work!

It's been taking me forever to get to writing a critique about this picture, and being my first ever for one of your pieces, I've been looking forward to it.

Dan, I have no idea what to say. This picture is just stunning. When I first saw you working on it in your LiveStream, I had no idea how beautiful the final picture would be.

The thing that really stands out is the background. The clouded effect of the sky is great, along with the electric windmills . It adds a lot of cool depth to the entire picture. The transition from the peaceful sunset to the darkened storm really stands out.

Next up-Syron. It's hard to believe that you were able to transform a Sonic fan character like him into such an amazing and original anthro of your own. The crystallized spines, the jagged hairs, and his chest crystal really "pop" through his design. And the sphere on his shoe and belt have an interesting effect, with the lighting off the sunset in the background.

I could probably go on forever on how brilliant this picture is. All of the significant details really make the picture, from Syron's torn clothes, to the soft shading of his glove closest to the camera. This is one heck of an improvement from your first picture, that's for sure.

This has to be one of your best pictures yet, Dan. Keep up the phenomenal work!

I definitely think it deserves the "daily deviation" award. The perspective is really well done I like how his near hand is blurred. The style and detailing is quite well done as well. I think my favorite thing about the picture is all the complex lighting and glow effects the eyes 'pop' out nicely. (and the hairstyle reminds me of Japanese cartoon games.) Is he part crystal? and the picture looks vector based.
'fighting to the end and giving a final blow'
anyways Well done. REALLY well done! Love it.

This looks amazing! The pose is very dynamic, and the colors are great!

Also, it took me an additional viewing or two to notice that he seems to be in a bit of a tough spot. Mid-battle pictures have a little special spot in my head; it likes to say 'awesome' quite often.

And quite an improvement (especially for two years!) I might add!
People like you that draw and improve so much begin to give me hope and encourage me to keep drawing and do something for myself. I'm gonna try to become more active and continue to upload photos and stuff :D (I had this account for 2+ years and uploaded my first photo today -.- lol Well, better late than never. I haven't stopped drawing though :))
AWESOME job!! ^^ <3
