*Would love to just say 'ditto' and steal Creatureart's wonderful commentary on LQ's work, but decides to take the non-lazy option*
Very cool! I agree with CA; lovely shading and colours. I really love the vibrant red of the wings; and the gold top with all the other colours you've used remind me of a roman soldier somehow. o_O Don't ask me quite why. Perhaps the bronzish colour of her top with the red wings like a Roman general's cloak or something. ^_^"
Anyway, excellent colouing job and great background. Well done, as usual! *Toasts LQ with a frothing cup of hot chocolate, then downs a swig of the chocolately stuff. Ends up looking like santa with froth for a beard*
Hopefully I'll get mine in soon. I've done the colouring and shading of the character, though I kind of neglected to do any good texturing...
but haven't yet made a good background. Might end up posting it as-is, but I'll see. ^^
<Edit>Hurrah for the edit button so I don't have to double post! Not-so-huzzah for the fact that the addition isn't acknowledged in the subscribed threads function. ^_^"
Anyway, decided to finally finish my entry. Doing the background was fun; probably messed up a few things here and there, but mucking around with different things like hue/saturation, color balance etc was fun. ^^ And the border function under Layers. ^^
The background... well, the leaf-like thing was a texture I scanned in from somewhere a while ago; I like it and it seemed to turn out quite nice here. I just added an action-line screentone thingie I found somewhere on top/underneath/both. ^^" Hope you guys like it; it was fun to do for the most part, but now I'm just happy that I can relax and blob out, not having to worry about deadlines for entries or whatever for this contest.
Oh, and it looks better small. And would probably look better if I coloured the linework too, but eh well. ^_^ *Is content anyway*
