Skyward Sword by Neffo Skyward Sword by Neffo
Unffff! :faint:
This one took me ages to make! :iconfinallyplz:

Process?
:bulletgreen: made the sketch
:bulletgreen: cleaned the sketch
:bulletgreen: made a lineart in ink
:bulletgreen: errased the messy sketch lines
:bulletgreen: filled the lineart with another layer of ink
:bulletgreen: made certain lines thicker
:bulletgreen: started coloring with dry watercolor pencils
:bulletgreen: realised my mistake and changed the coloring method by adding water
:bulletgreen: realised yet another mistake and improved the coloring with TRIA-markers
:bulletgreen: strengthened certain lines with another layer of ink
:bulletgreen: scanned the drawing
:bulletgreen: hissed at the scanner for eating all the colors and making the lineart blurry and pale ANYWAY!
:bulletgreen: kicked the scanner
:bulletgreen: re-did the ENTIRE lineart in paint tool sai (with the help of my wonderful tablet, i love you)
:bulletgreen: improved the colors (more saturation, color deepen, contrast)
:bulletgreen: added more lines to "frame" certain shades (hard to explain)
:bulletgreen: added some effects (darkness from The Imprisoned, fire glow from the Scaldera boss, sky/grass/sand/water textures in the background)
:bulletgreen: added signature and watermark.....voilà. *died*

I think it will take a while before I make an artwork like this again. At least traditionally! It took me too long, and the result...is not quite good enough, judging from how damn long it took.

Anyways, I'm really sorry you guys for being so inactive lately, but I'm going through a tough mental time right now. Gotta find a job and so on... Quite a lot of pressure when you're scared of contacting people on your own. Especially if you have a strange phobia of talking on the phone... I hate phone calls. :sigh:

Wish me luck!
And I still hope that my artwork is to your liking. :heart:

Well, I think you're a really good artist. Your coloring skills are amazing.
I mean, these drawings: iokothepanda.deviantart.com/ar...
iokothepanda.deviantart.com/ar...
for example, make me think you'd do great. It's a cute chibi style, the coloring is really smooth and sweet. If you tried to make a similar artwork to mine, but in your style, I can see in front of me how awesome it would look... You just have to find some courage and patience to try. ;)

Neffo Featured By Owner Dec 4, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
Hmm, well, I wanted Ghirahim in his usual form. I also wanted the great grey whale while he is possessed by that parasite. Then there were a few mini bosses, the robotic pirate captain, and the skeleton with 4 arms. :iconthinkingplz:
I also wanted to have those other three dragons. But yeah, too little space left. :XD:
