Imagination Forest by ippotsk Imagination Forest by ippotsk
Hehe, I'm back! This time with some Kagerou Project, in light of the anime adaptation's release. :icondojimathumbsupplz:
I've always wanted to draw Mary like this, at the peak of breaking down from all the chaos that goes around. It gave me chills.

I sketched it, and added lines for most part but her hair (which I brushed manually). For the shading, I relied mostly using multiple Multiply layers. Turns out it's pretty nifty, saves more time compared to going to every base color layer, locking the opacity, and brushing darker colors over it. I might need to work on color variation on the shades though, hehe. :D

Drawn and colored with mouse, on Paint Tool SAI, minor touches in Photoshop CS5,
Kagerou Project and characters are Jin and co.'s~

The only thing holding back your art is line weight. Someone buy this man a tablet.

Bagus banget!!! *Stares at this for an inapropriately long time* <3
Whoa...this is so striking, like immediately this jumped out at me in my inbox-! Very nicely done, it's so haunting. (for me) :'D
atmosfirnyaa... terasa menyesakkan dan menegangkan. It gives me chills. Really. Hmm thanks to the color scheme hehe

aku suka brush dibagian rambutnya, walaupun messy. Dan ekspresi wajahnya keliatan kesakitan banget.... keren! You did an awesome job in capturing the look.
hmm jadi ingat Mary di Outer Science pv.. walaupun aku belum pernah baca manga nya.

I was amazed. this time I looked at this one for 5 minutes trying to notice every detail.
I love it. especially the details around her face and fingers. 
All the things you had to do to get the final artwork, must have been so time-consuming. You must have a lot of patience for this!
Um... Keep it up, Rae!
I'm sorry.

Uwaaa Taffy! Your comment... Where can I even start? 8"D

I'm glad you like the impression this picture gives you! I wanted to make a piece that conveys a sense of despair and pain, so I put extra emphasis on her expression and the colors, to get the right atmosphere, like a dark fairy-tale storybook. :icongtthplz:

Ah, I brushed her hair entirely, because drawing long hair manually felt very tiring and tedious for me (since long curved lines are hard to draw with a mouse, huheuhe). I'm sorry it's a bit rough/messy, but I'm still glad you liked how it turned out! ; u ;
dan gapapa, manganya juga belum sampe situ kali. :iconheplz: #plak

And waah, actually, most of my time on this drawing was spent on adding finishing touches/details as well as adjusting some colors. The linework did take some time (4+ hours! 8D), but the colors and shades were quite simple in comparison. Sometimes I spend more time thinking of ideas compared to actually drawing them, ehehe. :iconimboboplz:

But thank you so much for your input, kak Ditha! I'm really glad you liked this! :iconfinallyplz:
