And the void wonked first

So, I started to do Confetti...

...but my midnight brain took over. Hmm... neon green...

Today was my last day of high school. FOREVER. (YAY.) This is the result. I'll do a more realistic one later, but I wanted to play a little bit first.

Confetti has stared into the void

and the void

has wonked first.

Anyway, as you can see, I did this directly over the top of the original photograph. I don't normally do that because I want the drawing practice and it's just too easy to trace over, but I didn't want to spend too long on copying everything down because it's a more complex drawing than the quick ones I normally do for you guys. Also, I cheated and the original (well, sort of original, with hue and saturation and lightness messed with) pic is underneath, filling in my coloring gaps. ;)

Also, anyone who got the Homestuck reference above: you rock. XD

Now that you've taken a peek behind the scenes, here's the drawing.

Oh, and also: the HQ version, which is huge because the photo was, makes an awesome computer background.

I'll have it up on DeviantArt soon, but it's really late and I need sleep.

There it is on DeviantArt in HQ. You can download it for computer background or printing purposes, if you so choose... It'd take a lot of ink to print though.

Confettis

I'm pleased with how Realistic Confetti turned out! I believe he is quite suffishent. :P

His drawing got three favorites on deviantArt within seconds. YOUR FISH IS POPULAR ;u;

Here's the HQ version: http://myexplodingcat.deviantart.com...etti-456239892

I'm attaching the forum version so impatient lurkers can see. But you can download it straight from dA.

Fish still to come:

1. Finn
2. Kaida
3. Julie
4. Mikaasa

Any newcomers be warned: there's kind of a waiting list here. If it gets too much fuller, I'll temporarily close the thread until I catch up...

Wait. Did I draw Julie or not? I think I might have drawn her when I was waiting for Midnight to get back to me on what she wanted for Confetti and Finn.

Lemme check.

...Oh, yeah... I did it, I just didn't like how she came out very much. Maybe one of you can tell me what I got wrong? I'll post her.

Julie's HQ version: http://www.deviantart.com/art/Betta-...ulie-456242572

Maybe it's the background? I feel like her colors aren't too bright, and the yellow rocks are overpowering her.

Julie Remastered

This is a gazillion times better. Taking the yellow out makes her look a little grayer, but at least it isn't nearly as unbalanced as before. Suggestions on improving this one are still welcome...

Changed to white gravel, added dark details to make her other colors look brighter.

(This obviously didn't take me very long.)

Oh, and there's this.

It is extremely satisfying seeing all these pretty fish on my dA gallery page.
