Arcane by flightangel Arcane by flightangel
Finalllly finished this painting for Illusionism (final project). This is a lot like my sunset piece from my cel-shaded trilogy, seeing at it also focuses on Shane and his fishies (though no bird this time, boo).

School's coming to an end and I wasn't able to snag any of the few internships available in the area, so I'll be heading home for the summer. Since I'm selling at Otakon this year, I'll be spending my time drawing a lot more fanart to sell... Anyhow. If there's any fandom you guys want to suggest I watch/read/draw for, I'm all open ears. Thanks!

I really love the atmosphere you've created here. I didn't find this deviation because it was a daily deviation, but I do think it's very well deserved! It's great that you've taken the time to fill in so many details, there are so many fish there, big, small, in the foreground, in the background. In fact, the longer I looked at this painting the more beautiful it became in my eyes. The expression on the man's face looks believable aswell, and it may sound dorky, but I'm very happy to see anime but WITH an actual nose. Ok but seriously, I love this.

Oh, haha, I totally get what you mean. I'm glad the anime without being too unbelievably anime aspect of this came out well. Thank you so much for your detailed comment; all the parts you point out definitely help me keep in mind what I need to aspire to in my future pieces! It always makes me happy when I know people are spending more than 10 seconds looking at my paintings, haha. So thank you!

Yes, especially on dA when there's so much to look at it's so tempting to just skim over pieces. However in my opinion it robs you of the full enjoyment of a piece!

I'm happy you appreciate the time I've put in commenting. I think we all should spend a little time doing that and encouraging others.

And please keep drawing, it's nice looking at your stuff. :)

Wonderful! Almost reminds me of ponyo or the little mermaid in a way, without the half human/half fish concept. It really has a nice free flowing feel. Well done!

Oh yes, the connection to those two movies is definitely evident (does it help at all that I called this piece "Under the Sea" before I had to change it out of my own guilt for the dorkiness? Haha) Thanks so much for your comment!

Thanks so much! This character is the supposed sorta main character for a comic I've been trying to get off the ground for a while, but as of now is still sitting on the backburner. I'm obsessed with him though, so he often appears in my homework paintings, haha. The comment about the mood definitely helps me, so thanks for your nice comment!

Your use of a complementary colour scheme astounds me. It looks so natural that I didn't even catch onto the beautiful blue/orange scheme until I stared at this for like 5 mins. But it was 5 mins well spent because this is STUNNING.

Thank you! I was trying to sortakinda branch out into a slightly different color scheme (I've been stuck in a blue/purple/red rut lately) so using so much orange and green was a bit terrifying for me at first. I'm glad it turned out great though, and I'm happy to know people like it!
