Secondary Colors Guy Again by Elicadragon Secondary Colors Guy Again by Elicadragon
(Note: in honor of my portfolio I made this better)

Oh this is just a little something I put together. ^__^


@_____________@


Little something that took me freaking over three weeks to make entirely in Photoshop.

... and I don't even know his name. Oh, this is the guy I originally made the discarded scarf for. :3 Look at him and all his :iconwhutplz: OMG DETAILS! :faint:

What I do know, is that he is a pirate who pillages the lands and takes some items of clothing as memoirs of the countries he's pillaged. He has a belt buckle from England, shoes from India (> .> kinda), vest from... generic... Arabia (<_<;), and scarf from China. I think he's Middle Eastern... or Romanian... or a Gypsie ... somewhere in there. >_> *cough* ^__^ See how wonderfully developed he is!

Aww, I wish we could see a side by side comparison to see how much it improved! But just looking back at this is really cool. Awesome details and lighting/shading, and the texture you used for the sea is quite effective and reminiscent of a computer game from about a decade ago... somewhat realistic but not as realistic as the games today. Water is hard.

SECONDARY COLORS MAN! It's good to see him again. XD What did you change on it? :3

Elicadragon Featured By Owner Jan 2, 2010
I made the shading on him better in general, the waves and clouds more realistic, and I added barrels. Also his right arm moved slightly.

Oh, I thought something was different about the waves. :3 It looks great!

WOOOOW! :wow: This looks like CG from a video game, seriously. o__o

Awesome work on painting his skin and face... you had to have had a reference, right? He looks too real!

And all the detail you put in his outfit... weeks worth, I believe you. D:

The sword, too! DDD: You're amazing!

If you get any job offers from video game companies, now you know why. :hug:

XD but I painted him in Photoshop, it's not for a videogame at all.

Yeah, I had referances. Well... no one really looks like this, although I did look for people of this skin tone to get the color and shading right and I looked for close ups on large noses, eyes, faces and just stuff...

References are great for realism :D (I know a lot comic pros use references, especially for backgrounds...)

It absolutly love this picture. I likes the other one too, but the detail on this one is amazing!!

Also, I think it's amusing how is clothes seem to come from all over the world (Endland, Arabia, China, India) and yet the whole ensemble is perfectly color coordinated :D Hooray for artistic license!!

Do you have a tablet? I'm pretty sure you don't... this whole thing... made with a mouse? Now that's amazing! O.O

The details... of my gosh! Such wonderful patterns! 8D And his scarf is a dragon! 8D And that sword... whoa! O.O<3

I love how his skin turned out, the hands look amazing, and so does his face. Umm that nose is delicious<3
Also, purple hair and yellow eyes is the way to go! :iconpedoludplz::heart:

Though I must admit, there was something that kinda threw me off... while the background, the ship and everything else is coloured in a more realistic manner...the pants seem to be almost cell shaded. :noes:

yes I do, but I don't use it. I have one of those lap top mouses that you only need one finger to move the arrow and thumb to click. ):> they ached after a while

^___^ thank you. His scarf was going to be flowers but :ninja: not manly enough.

:chew: *eats his nose*

8D yay people with manly purple hair! 9 _9 only his eyes are supposed to be orange.

^_^ there, I changed it. Does it look better now?

...why don't you use it? xD
You click... with the thumb? Ouch. O.O ...I've never even heard of mouses like that. xD ...or is it "mice"? :noes:

Definitely not manly enough. :iconseriousnod:

On nom nom! :noes:

*looks again* Yeah, they're light orange...or dark yellow... or something. XD

You know what... it really does look a whole lot better now. :nod::heart:

=__= I'm trying to since my mom got angry with me when I complained about my fingers hurting. I'm trying to get used to it, but it's just it's so much slower than the mouse.
Well, it's attached to the laptop, as in it's apart of it. You don't need to click with your thumb I suppose but it's easier

D: even if he tore it off some rich man while kicking him to his doom! And the he dramatically throws the pretty scarf around his neck that he ripped off and walks back to his ship. And never took it off.

Or orange but very shiny

^__^ yay

Pen pressure? O__o you get that on a stylist?

8D so that flower scarf could have been manly YAY! T _T but still... with purple hair... 6_6 I'm not sure if it's natural or he dies every hair folical on his body .... he seems like the kind of person to do that...

What?

9___9 I don't think it is the purple hair that makes him manly. Like I don't think it's the purple hair that makes Lud manly. It's because he pillages and she rapes .... >_> why does breaking the law make you manly?

Wow! I can see why it would take 3 weeks! The time spent on detail alone is obvious.

It will undoubtedly sound wierd but... he looks (to me) like he would smell of citrus. mmmm....
