Absol speedpainting by ShadeofShinon Absol speedpainting by ShadeofShinon
I haven't drawn Absol in a long time and I got this sudden urge to draw one. I wasn't planning to submit this here, but I like it enough to submit it to my gallery.

I gotta learn to write 2013 instead of 2012 in my signature. Same thing every year. Sigh.

Well, happy new year! I hope you like it!

I suddenly found out why it's called the "Disaster Pokemon".

If there are no disasters to predict, better just cause one.

It's been hunting, that's for sure. It hasn't got to the eating part yet though.

Holy shit this is perfection.
And I love that you made Absol feline here. I can't see it as anything but being based on a mythical lionlike beast.
Love the blood dripping from its horn, lips, and whiskers...!

I've always thought that Absol has some feline characteristics so I draw it with a feline muzzle.

En uskois tätä kyllä ihan speedpaintingiksi, jälki on niin nättiä ja jokainen veto huolitellun oloinen. Ikään kuin kaikki olis loksahtanu just hyvin paikoilleen! (: Sävyt on ihania, ja kirkkaana loistava silmä on hyvä kontrasti muuten yksinkertaisten värien pariksi. Tosi ihana huomata että teet Absolista niin realistisen näköisen, tekee hyvää omallekin mielikuvitukselle.

Kiitos paljon kommentista! :> Absoleita on tullut jokunen piirrettyä, niin ehkä siihen tekemiseen on kehittynyt jonkinmoinen touchi. Joskus nopeasti ja rennommin piirretyt kuvat onnistuu yllättävän hyvin.

Joo, selvästi on ollu siis paljosta piirtämisestä hyötyä. Rennosta jäljestä on silmän helpompi nauttia (:

Awesomesauce!!! Beautiful Absol!

Can you tell me how you made the fur exactly?
Reply
:iconshadeofshinon:
ShadeofShinon Featured By Owner Jan 3, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
Thanks!
The method I used is very simple. I worked on one layer only, so that the colours blend better, and started with the darkest shadows. Then I just started adding more details and lighter hues. When drawing long fur it's important to think about the directions so that the fur looks more airy and layered.
I'd be much better at showing than explaining but I hope this helped a little.

Thanky you! I seem to have noticed that most digital artists paint darker before moving in to make something lighter. Perhaps that is what I've been missing....

No problem! Yes, in digital painting painting from darker to lighter is quite important. You should try that. :>
