rofl.. I hate pink too, Drew. but.. this guy looks good. looks like he's going to murder if he doesn't get a dye job, though... O.O

what's this disney sketch pad, btw?
drewbrand Featured By Owner Dec 28, 2004
Ahh, the ol' disney sketch pad :)
It's a really old kids tablet (by disney) that I've had for 9 years. The pen hooks up the the tablet with a wire, but it's pressure sensative and its 9" x 6".....however I've since upgraded to a WACOM ;)

The detail is amazing.

I hate pink too.

I love all the details you've put into the feathers.

It definately is worth it.

Good stuff. :)

Wowzers, very very very nice work man! The work you do with that Sketch Pad is superior to some of the Wacom stuff I see people do! I love the eys and feathers especially, they really suck you into the pic. Aazingly done, what more can I say? +fav

Thanks for your comment on "Wish Upon A Starless Night BTW". The black line cutoff was a boo boo (I didnt even se it until you and sixwings mentioned it!) so that will be out, the planet will look a little more in-orbitish (if thats even a word), a star background is in the works, and I am gonna make the next comet myself instead of relying on crappy plugins. Thanks for all the killer advice, it is much appreciated!! If ya got time check my newest render out (see my sig), Id like your thoughts on it as you seem to give good comments (hard trait to find anymore). As always comments will be repayed ASAP. Thanks again!

Wow. Gorgeous piece. Love the coloring, the texture... the detail is great. The intensity of the eye is definitely an eye-catcher.
bucky Featured By Owner Aug 19, 2002
I thought this was a photo too. Good lord is the colour on this impressive and vibrant.

I wish more people who did computer-based artworks/colouring could make their stuff look like this. Isn't that the idea, to make it look almost real?
