Aerial Attempt by applePAI Aerial Attempt by applePAI
:iconcaelius-plz::iconsouls-of-chaos::iconcaelius-plz:

Pai's first part of SQ7--

-- I really rather hate this piece, but I wanted to submit it because Caelius support and I spent so much goddamn time and effort on it OTL I did it while I was without a tablet to get me back into using Markers--I of course went way too ambitious and picked something a tad too far out of my comfort zone. And DESPITE HOW BAD IT IS, IT COULD BE AND WAS WORSE--I redrew Yorick in that horribly failed pose countless times over the course of almost eight hours and it was SO MUCH WORSE those previous attempts. Then I went to color it hoping "OH I NEED TO MAKE THIS REALLY NICE COLOR TO COVER UP HOW AWFUL THE DRAWING PART IS" and then I run out of the primary color needed to finish and then I was all "I'M GOING TO BE AMBITIOUS AND TRY USING WHITE ACRYLIC PAINT" and then I went really overboard with it, gave up, photographed it, and hid it away in the corner, never to be seen again.

ON THE BRIGHT SIDE I also put in some luminescent fluid so all the ice is actually sparkly, not that you can tell.

So yeah, just... ignore this and go look at my second part which is much nicer-- [link]

Copic/Prismacolor/Acrylic on Bristol + touch of Photoshop, 11 [long, frustrating, probably wasted] hours.

I have to say that I really love that you did this with markers. And you may think that it looks awful, but I think it looks absolutely awesome—maybe because it's different from your other stuff and I can really appreciate that you can colour with markers. Don't be so hard on yourself! It looks great!

Haha, I think it's better than what you give it credit for xD It's pretty dynamic with lots of movement... but I know how it is to spend tons of time on something, only for it to not go as you imagined it to... so then you end up hating it xD;; I think it's pretty neat. Strong contrasts and energetic colors ftw.

XD thanks. I hate it most, I think, because I just spent so much time on it and it doesn't match the vision, even if it doesn't suck as much as I say it does. Which, to me, it still does, but XD eh.
