Sailor Neptune (Sailor Moon) – (Bonus Pic)

Share

So, this was an interesting pic, the character itself is pretty nice, I always liked the Sailor Moon’s char design, but the part that I had more fun with this pic is with the painting process itself.


With this pic I wanted to try a different brush (flat rectangular brush high pressure sensitivity) and a more “free” style of painting, by “free” I mean not to relying too much on my references and instead try to “eyeball” most of it, and I must say it is actually a lot of fun!


I usually try to gather as much references I can for my pics, 3D refs, photos, anything that helps, and I like the results of this format, my cast shadows and forms tend to be pretty correct due to the amount of refs, however, with this “free” style I can focus on trying to make the pic LOOK good, even if not exactly “correct”, and this format gives me a lot of freedom to be creative and try to capture the “mood” I want without worrying too much with being precise.


So yeah, definitely gonna experiment more with this process on future bonus pics ^^

Hope you guys like it!

Awesome! Your pics always tells the story, with the bg details and lighting. Love that.
I think if you mastered the fundamentals ( anatomy, lighting and painting ) you are free to brake those rules for sake of the story and feeling of whole picture. Im happy to hear that you choose the creative path over beeing super focused in beeing correct. Cant wait to see more "freely" painted pics. But what the matter at the end is the fun you had doing that. If youre enjoing the proces thats im with you. So best of luck man :)

Thanks a lot for the though full comment my friend!and I hope you're right! xD I still strugle a bit with perspective and overall composition, but I hope that by drawing more freely, I will start to getting these right faster ^^
