Wading by katiedesousa Wading by katiedesousa
I livestreamed part of this on... friday? Friday.

Sort of an experiment (like everything I do) and I'm not sure if the experiment succeeded or not because I'm not sure what I was aiming for. At any rate, I had fun and that is all that really matters :)

Partially a style test and partially a... I don't know, trying to visualize a certain character. Not sure if I like her.

Sigh.

I think I'm in a bad mood, I dropped my sushi lunch on the ground on Wednesday and still haven't quite gotten over the loss. *laments*

Time for bed I think.

Photoshop CS3 and lines in Painter.. something. 9? 10? 11? I don't even know what number I'm on now.

Edit: Her eyes are big, I like them that way. If you dislike it, sorry but they're not changing! :D

its hard to imagine how in that position the final work would look good, if i drew her i would think she is too arched back, her butt is too far from her breasts it would look like she got a huge ass, but in the end it does look perfect, perspective and positions play tricks on your mind

*Le~GASP* Whaat? You don't know if you like her?

*HYPNOTIZES YOU* Look into her eyes. You liiiiiike herrrr. You are feeling proud of her. Yes. Yes you do. Cause she's beautifuuuuul, and you are made of awesoooooome. Now nod. Yes, gooood. :meow:

Sorry I've just had WAY to much caffeine this morning and not enough FOOD.

Moving on with life - I love the subdued colors, the textures, and her large sparkly eyes * u * they are just so dreamy-looking :heart: I'd say it was a successful experiment, but I'm kind of biased, I greatly 'admire' all your art - I just like some pieces more than others. :D

love the style. I can see the influence those artists had on you, and I would even add Alphonse Mucha's Art Nouveau style. I like the eyes a lot; I find those and the lips make her seem more humid... more squishy. That sounds wrong, but it all serves to make her look more real I guess.

I like her big eyes and round. . .areas. :iconshiftyplz: It adds a bit of exaggeration to an otherwise perfectly realistic person. :D

Fantastic. :clap:

Awww! A horrible fate for a sushi lunch! :(

she looks beautiful :heart:

and I don't think the eyes hould be smaller, the fact that they are so big makes her look surreal or supernatural or something, which is nice :3

Incredibly sexy! I think the eyes are definitely the best part. If they were any smaller, they probably wouldn't draw you in the same way.

As a fellow sushi lover, I feel for your dropped lunch. I hope you've had a proper meal to make up for it since then!

She's got such an epic classic pin-up like girls' body style, even her pose and mouth (facial expression)

Gorgeous! The eyes are so huge and absorbing. Lovely colours.
I would so love to look as sexy as that in an outfit like so. Lovely patterns down on the thigh/butt area.

Hello :)

I wrote a comment on this drawing about the eyes the day you uploaded it but I haven't heard back from you. I really still want to show what I mean. I edited your drawing a bit, I really hope you don't mind that. If you do: I am sorry.

I like her big, glassy eyes. The design of her swimsuit or bodysuit...whichever you want to call it is very pretty especially the straps. Love her round feminine curves. Was a pleasure watching this on livestream.
