My first FF fan art :

The next one would be Shiva, from FF X.

Pretty. You always put so much detail into your work.

I'm looking forward to seeing your Shiva.

Posted by: Ringo Oct 26 2007, 08:46 AM

Very pretty colours!
Is it watercolours?

Posted by: Anarloth Oct 26 2007, 09:05 AM

Thanks for the comments...

Ultima is colored with soft pastels and pastel pencils (for details), and a bit of golden and coppered pencil (jewels, dress' patterns...).

The background is painted with watercolor.

The pic is a little blurry because I took it with my cell... The work's size is 65 cm x 50 cm.

I know I'm a bit late, but I just noticed this, Ana. Ultima is really beautiful and detailed. I always knew you were artistic, but WOW! Great work, can't wait to see Shiva! smile.gif

I just finished

Watercolor pencil, and watercolor.

The next : maybe Shiva again (just a portrait), or Mateus.

^ I'm sure Ana would do an excellent job with Bahamut. Don't be a dick.

Gorgeous work, Ana. Can't wait for Shiva.

Mateus! Mateus! please ! ^^'
My fav'!
I'm jealous of your colourisation!!! I love the way you did that job! =')

Posted by: Anarloth Jan 15 2008, 09:57 AM

I've began to draw Mateus ! smile.gif

The problem with Bahamut, errrr... I don't have a lot of models and he's rather complex. You speak about Bahamut of FFX ?

Posted by: Tidus1 Jan 15 2008, 11:47 AM

Here's my last fan art

I finished it this afternoon !

Posted by: Lady Sora Mar 21 2008, 01:26 PM

You've done well. I liked it.

Posted by: Burrgle Mar 21 2008, 03:58 PM

I definatly do not have the patience to go into that much detail. Way to go! But some of it could use some work. Like....some of the details look a little akwardly out of proportion and including a backround...even if it is subtle could help tons. I am not talking about just a pale blue wash or something. But add some sort of subtle movement or something. I feel like some of your colors could use work too.

But the detail is very nice smile.gif

Aw, Ana, don't hate me for replying so late in your topic. . .I just realized you'd added 2 new drawings.

I love them both, you have such an eye for detail. I'd love to see these actual drawings, and not just the photo you've taken, because I'm sure they look even more detailed. Shiva is my favorite Aeon, and she looks absolutely perfect here. I love her pose. Although Shiva is my favorite Aeon, I think you've done an even better job on Mateus. This looks as good as the art in the official guide, honestly. You just keep getting better and better, Ana. Keep posting, I love them! smile.gif

Posted by: Lonedove Apr 26 2008, 05:51 PM


wow. just. wow.

I love the mixing of color pencils and watercolors it's a really nice effect. <3 I've used them together before and it was so difficult! You really are talented, ana. ^^ I hate to sound so pushy yet, if you do any more please post them. =D

Posted by: Anarloth Bunansa Apr 28 2008, 10:51 PM

Thanks for the comments ! smile.gif

And GRG2, it' okay ! I don't surf a lot on this forum at the moment ! tongue.gif;)

Posted by: Ringo May 3 2008, 10:43 AM

I love the details on the Mateus one!
Are the drawings done in watercolours? Great work smile.gif

Posted by: Anarloth Bunansa May 3 2008, 01:19 PM

Mateus is done with pastel pencils, pastel (for veils) and watercolour (background). smile.gif

The next one should be finished as soon !

Posted by: Anarloth Bunansa May 7 2008, 07:51 PM

I finished a new fan art this afternoon...

With watercolour, and a little of watercolour pencil, and coppered and golden pencil.

Posted by: EmptySpiral May 8 2008, 09:09 AM

I looked at them all, really beautiful work! I love the colouring and soft feel to them smile.gif

Posted by: Ringo Jun 11 2008, 03:16 AM

^ thats a really lovely drawing of shiva smile.gif
U have great watercolour skills!

Posted by: Burrgle Jun 11 2008, 05:42 AM

I just left the same natured comment on Ringos recent thread. Hahaha...but it would defenatly be better for you to stray from what you see in the game and do a different sort of portrait, maybe make your own rendition of Shiva (one not in the games). Basically what you are doing, to me, says that you can look at a picture and draw what you see. While that is fine and dandy, it would be a better exersize to use your creativity to the fullest.

As for technique goes; lines are stale and boring in some places. I am not digging the nearly monochromatic blue. If you are going to use blue...mix in some other colors for some sort of temperature variation. It is a very cold painting, but most things have varations of warmer colors and cooler colors (even if it is Shiva). If you want to stick to the monochrome...add contrast with darker colors and that hair is a beast...I suggest you spend more time on it.

And something I learned from countless classes in this. Never use white like that. You are layering it on top of stuff that is already there. Have patience and leave the white of the is a lot more pleasing and professional looking.

I know this amazing watercolor artist, he does really good work with using lights in watercolor. And his hair is very good too. Take some pointers from his artwork smile.gif His name is Steve Hanks...and he is amazing

The Pictures are wonderful!!! biggrin.gif

Your a very talented artist biggrin.gif

Posted by: Anarloth Bunansa Jun 12 2008, 11:52 AM

Thanks for comments !

Burrgle > thanks for advices (althought I'm not sure to understand all of them, my English skills are quite basics).

In fact I paint with a drawing teacher's advices. I go to a art school.
And what you see here is not the real picture. It's a photo, I took it with my cell phone, then the quality is rather faded.

Posted by: Burrgle Jun 12 2008, 01:24 PM

I go to school for art too. And I too paint with advice from countless profs. tongue.gif

Feel free to ask me questions about my advice if you do not understand, I love to give advice. And feel free to argue with me too!

Posted by: Anarloth Bunansa Jun 12 2008, 08:19 PM

Oh, you know, I'm rather shy. For me it's difficult to argue ! tongue.gif

Posted by: Burrgle Jun 13 2008, 04:19 AM

No please...I encourage it....lets argue. smile.gif

Posted by: Ringo Jun 14 2008, 02:44 AM

^ U should be a critic. I think u'll be good biggrin.gif

Posted by: Burrgle Jun 14 2008, 06:20 AM

Eh...that or a lawyer...been my strong point...argueing. tongue.gif Fits well...I am a Jew -headdesk-
