ANIMA - Imprisoned by DamaiMikaz ANIMA - Imprisoned by DamaiMikaz
"So much for seeking power, you little brat".
At least, that was what they said, by then. He probably knew that it wouldn't end that way. Not just like that, without a fight. He didn't speak a single word after the day he was captured. Although silent, his eyes would never avert from the sky above. As if he was willing to say: one day I'll be out of here. I'll break out of this chains and move the sky again.



Yeah, this was an insane amount of work. The first time I did a real digital painting again, after 2 long years, and I've learned quite a lot along the process. Like to stop being afraid of making mistakes and merging everything in one layer, to speed up the process (and that was really needed. Even though my computer is pretty fast it took me over 3GB of ram to work on this thing). But I'm glad to say my work gets more and more like how it is in my head.

That... and too many Yuki Kajiura soundtracks: www.youtube.com/watch?v=To6KHE… www.youtube.com/watch?v=QelGyP… www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ce7StF… www.youtube.com/watch?v=t4Fea8…

When I was going through the hundreds of deviants in my message box I came across this one and refused to just take it off. I looked at it for a while and was amazed at the colors, the technique, and the face of this OC! It made me want too look at more of this artists work and so I shall after this.

The one thing I cannot get over from this digital painting is, for one: it's digital but the bigger thing is the face. Artist, even myself. Struggle to make the face have a true, readable emotion. This happened perfectly and I condradulate the artist and envy your skills. You have done a great job.
What do you think?

Yes, Kajiura Yuki soundtracks. They always inspire me, too. This character looks extremely beautiful. And the name fits him.
The work is very good, too, I like such style, lineless, but accurate. His facial expression is so cute. Just like it was said, yummy.
I really find it hard to critique this rtwork, though, because everything seems just fine. but there are few mistakes. First, when the mouth is slightly opened, there are no teeth visible, so it should be coloured greyish red\peach\pink. And also his pose looks a bit unnatural, as if he's not touching the wall (or what it is, but with such legs it's hard to keep the balance. And the leg, which is up looks fat a little, but the character itself is pretty skinny.
Oh my, I just cannot find more mistakes. that has to be the best artwork I critiqued, because it's usually over 300 words, and at least 33.33% of it are about mistakes.
And I'm going to read about this character, he caught my interest.

Amazing! The work was beautiful and bright.
It is not easy to work with only one layer. :)

It's, in matter of fact, very easy.
It's really fast :la:

I'm sure. But much training is needed.
I'm thinking of doing something with only one layer. :)

Nah, it's very similar to traditional art :)

It's true. I've done much oil painting.
I know how it is. I'll try.
Thank you for guiding me. :)

Yes, I've learned most of the techniques from oil painting books indeed.
Even though I've rarely painted with real oil paint (so expensive, unfortunately T__T )

Yes, the material for oil painting is very expensive.
The best of digital painting is that it has Ctrll + Z.
In traditional painting, a wrong brushstroke is difficult to correct.

The trick with the one-layer painting, though, is that you do it without the ctrl-Z option.
That's the way you'll learn most :)
