Music to inspire by Dexter01992 Music to inspire by Dexter01992
This picture is dedicated to something that accompanies me more or less all the time that i draw. It helps me to focus, to imagine, to let go all those thoughts that plagues my mind all day, and of course, to inspire me. :) (Smile)
So, for one time, i wanted to let myself go... "wild" and draw what the immagination wanted to show to me. ^^

Here's a couple of songs that especially accompanied me during the colouring:

Wow, here we can talk about an Art work!
I don't know what to look at first. Eyes ussually watch picture from left to right so firt I was impressed by the chinesse dragon. I like how his eyes glowing, it attracting eyes as the first thinkg I think. Then there is a lot of tiny details I had to zoom in to see. There is such amount of detailed objects, I am really impressed by the effort you put it that one place. A plane, a rollercoaster, feathers, stars... And everything is so smooth lined. That sure took a lot of time! O.O The most I like are those blue/purple geometric "things" (well I can't find a good word for it since English is not my language ^^") I don't know how you did it but it looks so awesome how it is so efectivelly spatial. And those lines around it with little words on it, I like that "nano" effect which referencing whole picure into electronic theme - the music going from headphones.
Maybe it was not intencional but I appreciate that girl is not looking 100% manga styled. There are thousand of pictures with the same face so I am glad I see something new. Anyway, WOW the clothing! Those folds looks realistic. I am having problems with them so I am impressed when somebody can draw it so great! The white lines on black parts of clothing is very good idea. Also I noticed the armchair the girl is sitting on is styled into sound box :D looks great! Then, from WIPs I saw I wasn't sure what kind of background could you use. And space backround seems very lovely to me. I like space pictures, those colors around are fitting the whole picture of being in some new world while listening to music. I think many people will see similarity of the picture and their lives, especially the artists. Of course, same to me, music is very inspiring to do art or anything.
This picture is very original and very quality representation of the situation.
Very impressive work!
Congrats!

Quick question: How did you shade the hair? I'm interested in doing animesque artwork now, but I suck at hair shading!

Uh... It is a little hard to explain right here just on a comment... ^^;

If i remember well, I took reference from this tutorial here:
Tutorial: Coloring Hair by Curryuku
(Sorry to bother the artist that made this picture...  ^^;)

Hoping it will help. :)

Yeah, but yours has much more detail to it...
Reply
:icondexter01992:
Dexter01992 Featured By Owner Jun 4, 2016
It follows the same procedure. :)
Detail comes out by just putting more effort on it. ^^;
Still, I find the one in the tutorial much more appealing than mine, especially at lineart...

What I meant is, how would I do the detail? Would I just apply it in the general direction of the hair?

Dexter01992 Featured By Owner Jun 5, 2016
If you mean the thin lines "inside the main shape" of the hair, you more or less have to add them by following the shape of it. A good idea for the first times is to add to the guidelines of the hair some sketchy "wireframe grid" (you do 3D, you know what I mean, right?), and follow that grid to understand the shape. Then you add these details with a VERY thin brush. Do not make continuos lines, try to interrupt them in the middle, or to delete the tip to make them more sharp. Otherwise, those details will look too raw and will make the look "heavy". ^^;

Then, you can do the same when adding light, but instead of using black lines in the sketch, you use very bright colors in the color layer, or you could use the layer in " linear dodge (add)" mode of Photoshop (or the same mode in the software you are using) . :)

Hoping that it helps. I'm not very good at this... ^^;

...è fantastico!!!la colorazione è stupenda, i dettagli nei vestiti e nel drago sono semplicemente meravigliosi!adoro questo effetto "elettronico" che hai messo nel disegno, e nel complesso colpisce molto a prima vista.forse non sarà perfetto, ma...è stupendo in qualunque caso!!

Sei la prima che dice che non è perfetto, potresti dirmi in particolare in cosa manca? :blushes: Non preoccuparti, qualunque cosa tu dica è ben accetta! :aww:

È solo che questa è stata un pò ignorata da tutto e tutti, pur essendo una sulla quale puntavo di più, soprattutto sulle recensioni... :(

Di nulla!comunque sono un maschio..x'D
In qualunque caso!come ho già detto il dragone é fatto benissimo, e i colori sono meravigliosi.l unica cosa, il corpo femminile effettivamente ha piccoli errori.nulla di che, peró effettivamente in alcuni punti del corpo (come le spalle o i seni) tendi a disegnare con un effetto "squadrato",non rendendo le giuste curve al meglio.e la cosa su cui dovresti lavorare di piú sono i capelli!só quanto é difficile se si disegnano spesso i mobiani, ma dato che sei molto bravo mi sembra un peccato non lavorarci tu, dato che sei già a livelli alti.per migliorarli ti consiglio di farli piú "naturali": Disegnali con linee piuttosto leggere e sottili, e cerca di ombreggiarli il piú possibile, in quanto effettivamente i capelli hanno un sacco di sfumature, soprattutto nelle ragazze.in qualunque caso, é meraviglioso!non ti preoccupare per il fatto che non sia stato visualizzato da molti, perché é molto molto bello!almeno hai la soddisfazione di avere fatto un bel lavoro!continua cosí!

Ps:non posso darti tanti consigli in quanto non sono un esperto (anzi),ma sono consigli che mi hanno dato alcuni miei amici e che ti offro in dono(?).spero che siano utili in qualunque caso!

Oddio scusami! :O A volte mi confondo... :(

Purtroppo sono errori che faccio di frequente. -.-' Mi sa che mi devo fermare dal fare i miei vari progetti e praticare di più queste mancanze... 
Anche i capelli, e dire che avevo usato diverse referenze... :/
Vedrò cosa posso fare le prossime volte, grazie di tutto!

And I'm one of those weirdos where music doesn't inspire me :XD:

As for the picture itself it is absolutely stunning and features loads and loads of intricate details. The colours really pop out and paint the scene perfectly. It may not appeal to me personally as music doesn't inspire me but I've seen loads of people be inspired by their favourite songs and will speak out to them. I like the futuristic lighting as if from something of tron.

Did you colour this in Manga Studio because if so... teach me oh master :XD:

Nice work as always and I know you are extremely happy with this and you should be!

Yes, it is the same design as Shenron. XD I was looking for a Chinese dragon that was fitting into a Manga picture, so I thought immediately on it. ^^;
