I colored :iconshiyu-kang:'s birthday sketch to celebrate her coming back to Tumblr. I thought she left all of us forever. (  ;  n  ;  )

This is one of the rare realistic armors on female warriors that i have seen. Very well done job. Gratz :)

p.s. Armors with boobs don't exist ;)

Haha, ya, yay for functional armor design! I think I may have made it a little too flat though, looking at it now. XD Well maybe she has a small bust. <__<

I don't see the distortion as being out of place, since it's a fantasy piece and fantasy is different depending on the artists vision, and because I fucking love this and I can't stop nerdgasming in my seat. I'm sorry for leaving like that!! D8

that distortion effect looks AWESOME with this pic, and I'm usually not one for that technique!

I know, I see it everywhere lately. XD I don't often like it when it's over-done, but when it's very subtle to certain areas it can look neat. Uh, I didn't do it very subtle here though, lmao. <_____________<

Thanks Morgan! :excited:

Really nice stuff!

Just one comment - while RGB distortion looks fancy, it's out of place in a fantasy piece context, IMO. The distortion is something that pretty much only exists on malfunctioning/old CRT displays - it's not a natural effect in the eye under any circumstance. This means while it's *also* out of place in sci fi contexts, it at least is more sensical in that application.

Thanks man!

Ya I see what you're saying. XD What I was trying for was a sort of... refraction, I guess? Those neat rainbow effects you see in lighting, from reflections, or the blue/yellow/red you see on borders of objects with strong lighting. (I see it often in lights and in the morning through windows.) I am not afraid to admit I have no idea what I'm doing however, nor have I looked up the science and reasoning for it lol. I wanted to do something quickly, that looked rainbow-y, so in part it was laziness. And I figured it was magic, so like, anything goes, lmfao. That was my reasoning at any rate haha. 

Thanks for your input. I appreciate it. I'll keep that in mind for the future. Perhaps I would do better to add a single color, and then small peaks on the borders. Or maybe it would have been better to do them in circles, in waves, like you'd see irl. :thanks:

Hey.

I see your thought process!  I was actually a little afraid of being harsh there; the whole RGB thing is just something I've noticed becoming pretty popular in the digital art world and it just seemed really weird to me because the whole thing is just a sendup of old CRT monitors. I even ended up writing a blog post about it - not that anyone reads serious posts on Tumblr, lol.

I'm vaguely familiar with what you're talking about, RE IRL glare; should you end up experimenting to find a better way to realistically depict that, I'd definitely be interested to see what you come up with.
