Ameya in Seppengakure by Konekodesu Ameya in Seppengakure by Konekodesu
This is my character Ameya, being bored in her hometown... ^_^

I wasn't sure how to categorize this, since I eventually want to write a doujinshi with her...

Ah well.

I drew this six months ago... and kind of lost interest. It wasn't until earlier this evening that I came back on to Deviant Art and thought, "I really need to post more often..." But I'm such a perfectionist, it's difficult for me to finally decide on what to post. I would never consider any of my art "finished" but I try to get as close as possible.

Anyway, I'm glad I waited so long to finish because this was an extremely difficult drawing.... the scan I took was completely in pencil and I never got the inked version on my computer... but for the past six months I've been messing around with Jasc... I had colored my picture already when I started up again, but now I knew about layers and affects and textures, etc... I did everything then the hard way... I had no idea how to use layers. *shudders* I was in tears trying to figure out how to get the reflection on the floor without ruining the whole thing.

Anyway. Please full view! ^_~

Oo how very pretty! Nicer looking in the smaller version cos when I zoom up I can see pixels and the smudge tool! haha! Nice detail tho, and love the reflection :P you should practice inking with a pen so you don't have those lineart dots all over the place, how did you do the pattern on her skirt? Looks cool :P

OH GOD NO~! Lol

I was praying people I watched would never have the curiosity to check out my drawings, I know my stuff is about as raw as it gets...

I started off with a very detailed pencil drawing [link] and this is only my second drawing to *ever* use layers... (I adjusted the color depth to 2 colors and made it into a horrible kind of line art... pixilated, choppy...) The original's better, isn't it? This is also before I had my lovely tracing table, and inking something this detailed horrified me, and I had just discovered the joys of Paintshop Pro. And felt I should share my discovery with the world. I apologize world. I'll get better I swear! XD

The skirt was me very carefully going over the black pattern I had originally done in pencil with the gold brush... after I reduced the color depth. It was on the actual line art before I merged the image. I don't know what I was doing.............. :P

But thank you. :heart: I'm still kinda proud of it, since I learned a lot when working on it. :D

Thanks! :D

I tried to make it as I had seen it in my head when I was first drawing and shading it with a pencil, never thinking that it would end up being one of my personal favorites, just because of how close to my original concept it became, and of how long it took me... O_O

I also learned a lot of things with this, so I see what I could have done better now, but, for the time and my lack of knowledge when starting it, I'm still proud of it. :3
