Some art?







Remember that wedding dress drawing I did a while ago? This one?

Well, I was bored yesterday, so I spent three hours editing it and coloring in on GIMP.
Tah daaa!





First, I fixed it. Whiting out all the pencil smudges and darkening the lines. I was trying to make it look more like a coloring book picture and less like a sketch.

New Layer

Next, I colored her skin. I dragged the opacity down, to make it easier to fix mistakes. After that, I re-traced the details on her face using a black brush.

New Layer

I played with the lighting on her face. I brightened her cheeks with a skintone brush, and added some shadows alone her nose and brow-bone. 

New Layer

Using an eyelashes brush, I gave her eyelashes, and I used a slim eye-shadow brush to give her eyebrows. 




New Layer

I colored her eyes green and her pupils black. I did her lips a darker skin tone, and I put the shadows on her hands and neck.

New Layer

I colored all the beads a silverish color, and then drew all the shadows on her dress. 

New Layer

I colored her hair the same-ish color as mine. All I did was keep the opacity doooown, and use a very small brush to trace the strands, and in some places, just color randomly.

New Layer

I colored the backround, very lazily. I just colored with the opacity dragged down, to make mistakes easier to fix, and as a result, it has a sloppy sort of water-color look. But I was too DONE to try and fix that.



So yeah! Obviously I am no cartoon artist, but I think it went pretty well, for a first try!

















































Oh yeah, somewhere along the line I out-ed the veil. I thought it looked too...well, lazy, compared to all the rest. To un-detailed. So I erased it.

  2. Yay! How long did that take you, with all the details? Since I use GIMP too, I know from experience how long it takes to clean things up sometimes! Good job!!
