deanne collab by loish deanne collab by loish
collab between me and *kitton! the lineart was drawn by her and the colors are by me. it's a page from one of her comic projects, featuring one of the main characters deanne, as seen here [link] . kat didn't know what she was gonna put in that top left panel so i left it blank, in case you're wondering what's up with that...

colored in photoshop 7 with a wacom tablet. i used the standard paintbrush tool with a low flow (i changed the flow depending on what effect i wanted, so it ranged from 3 to 20 throughout the process). textures from [link] . for tips on how to apply textures check [link] .

Some folk hack me off too with smart observations that are very negative and serve no function at all.

I love your work, so there! :thumbsup: :santa: :D

I /love/ this piece. Your coloring is very amazing. course, I love the lineart also. I keep coming back to this drawing occasionally to look at it. it's really amazing.

I have a question though (I'm sure someone's already asked before). what was the main texture you used on this piece? It's precisely the texture that I'm looking for, though I visited the link you gave and I couldn't find it...unless I'm just blind. If you could give a direct link to the main texture you used for this, I would appreciate it very much. ^^

Seriously nice colors in the pic. The skirt is quite lovely and the head section too. I like the head section because of the shadows and the fact that shes holding the tube like that right in front of the sun.

Oh Id really like to see this in motion, Oh Yeah. And if the Linedrawer starts making realisticier bodies Id like a porno version too ;).

This one reminds me of Monkey Island... what would you have called it if it wasn't a collab? :)

I love the quality of light and the palette in this piece. It reminds me of tropical soil and fried plantains. Warm and earthy!

I don't see what's the problem with the feet

They look just like my feet.... O_o

Maybe that's why I am such an fantastic dancer....

I liked the light and shadows work. Very detailed.

I like it. Strong colours and a very solid look to it. I especially like how you handle the telescope's shadow without wiping out the detail on her face, and the way you make even the cool colors look hot.. very well done indeed :)

Really like the pic, but to save time and words I'll just list the things I like/don't like about it. I know you didn't do the line art, so then you can disregard the comments about it.

*I think that the mountain's silhouette could be a little more detailed...maybe some moss or similar vegetation. Just a small touch.

*Maybe it's just me, but her left leg (on the more detailed portrait) seems a little too long.

*Her neck seems a bit long

*Lastly, the colors seem a little too warm which removes a bit of he contrast.

*I think the trunk she is sitting on could also use a little more texture.

*On the larger portrait, it seems to me that she's leaning a little too much which kinda stretches her proportions.

*In the bottom left panel, the red and green 'clouds' don't blend.

And now...what i like about it

*Great fog effect. Really brings out the dense jungle feel of it all.

*I like the fact that it looks hand drawn. Has a nice papery feel about it.

*Nice color choices for the skirt and the head cloth. Very tropical.

*Really like the mocha skin tones.

*I get a sort of lazy, lounging mood from this pic.

*Very nice character design.

Keep it up! =)

oooh pretty! I love the colour of the girl on the right's skirt in particular :) my grad dress had a skirt like that!

pretty :D
Relliam Featured By Owner Feb 19, 2007
First off I love the style, especially the way the faces and the fabric are drawn. And I love that you kept the color palette rather somber, the way the warmer colors are used really wake the picture up. Love it!

I really really envy your colouring, it is AMAZING. I would kill for that skirt. Pirates get all the cool stuff

for some reason it generates an association of something between the monkey island series, the pirates of the carribean and ...pretty girls ... yeah I got nothing for that last one, but the work is amazing
Biddylicious Featured By Owner Feb 12, 2007

Gorgeous colours! :clap:

Btw, I honestly believe that the nitpickers never even bothered to read the title or the description. They rarely do.

DeathRetsu Featured By Owner Feb 9, 2007
I think what makes your colors so great is your attention to lighting and cast shadows and how to really bring out shapes. Of course, I love your choices in colors as well. The green shadows against the golden browns are really lovely.

I'm a fan of kitton's drawings. She has a really unique style and her inking is so lovely. You make a really nice team. :)

I love seeing someone who really grasps lighting. It's pretty freaking awesome. Lighting is hard. So very hard.

Ayem Featured By Owner Feb 9, 2007
But... I think the feet look awesome! They really fit in with the style of kitton's drawing. And the way she drew the skirt is awesome! So many prett folds... nice job, Kitton!
And your colouring really brings this to life! the soft golden hue is beautiful! And the shading on the girl is really pretty. Makes her look like she's enjoying the sun. And, the shading's in all the right places.
