Dreamers by Kaiami Dreamers by Kaiami
Yes! Finally! I'm done. Or at least I think I am.
I've been working on this forever. Like since last year. Except I gave up and left it alone (and I was only on the pre-lining stages too) o~o;

It's a collab with ~ramy. He granted me permission to mess with his sketch some time ago. Here's the original sketch: [link]

Lining this thing was the hardest thing I've ever lined. Srsly. And I couldnt do it with a mouse and photoshop. So I only finished because my tablet started working again (I wish I had pen pressure though D:) and downloaded the trial version of Sai. Lining was also kinda really hard because I blew up the original x400, so it was really blurry. If you saw a closer version of the lines, they're reaaallly messy. Like. REALLY.

And I haven't CGed in forever, so that was kinda hard too.
And photoshop kept freezing on me, so I had to start over a lot. And the tablet died a few times too.

And I can't make wings for my life. I attempted to make some really furry pretty ones, but it didnt come out right. If anyone out there is really good with angel wings, I wouldnt mind having them redone!


And.
Also.
The sky color.
I originally set it to a dark night color, but it didn't look right. So I set it to an afternoon blue, like the left side. But I thought that was kinda really contradictory, that the moon is that visible in the afternoon. I'm sort of always contradictory though, especially when it comes to lighting. I'm not really into lighting, so I usually have shading in like every direction. I'm ok with that though

My mom passed by once and was like "I like the background." But like. It was just a paint bucketed blue ._.; I tried working on the background really hard, but it's still pretty ghetto. If you can tell, the left half is light blue, and the right side is darker blue. That's because I'm no good at deciding, and I wanted both, so I spent a whole day deciding what color to have the sky. And I couldnt. So I chose both.

Though I'm happy with how it came out, I wish I could have done a better job. I hope you're ok with it though, Ramy. I can't do half a good a job as you, but I did what I could.

CREDIT TIME.

Lace brush by Kabocha: [link]

Crow brushes by (?): I'm sorry, I can't remember :( I think it might be [link] but I'm not sure

Cloud Tutorial by C4mi: [link] It had the moon tutorial too, but I couldn't seem to follow it, (too advance for me) so I just used the cloud tutorial.

Sketch and permission from Ramy: Thank you so much for letting me work on this, Rams :) Of course though, I would have wanted to see your colored version of this picture.

This is so AMAZING!!!
I love the way that you couldn't decide which colour to use for the sky and ended up using both.
It makes it seem so much more ephereal (sp?).
And I love the wings. The way they're just there, wisping around...
WOW
