Before a Big Celebration by Hokage3 Before a Big Celebration by Hokage3
Fun Festival WIP

Special Class


*Note:
Hmmp, even though this was not finished within the month of July, this artwork will be under my July Folder...even if I finish this one along the days of August. Why? Because, err, nothing unusual...I need to post an artwork, at least once a month...or else I'm doomed.

Oh yeah, I'll post the finished version within the week, so the wait won't be that long. I swear I could have finished this one on time, but thanks to Internets, video games and Anime.....I easily got sidetracked....(Dummy Hokage, must....stay...focused)

Been busy for a while...doing random stuffs, but I'll be active again soon....right after I get things in order. For now, this will be my cheap post. For those who liked it, thank you, you have all the opportunity to enjoy it, for the moment I post the finished version, this one will be replaced and the complete crowded version will take overrrrrr....

Gyaa, missed writing long stuffs, I gotta do this more often....and this might count as a journal post.....

Lovely work. Is this background free to use for other pieces? I would like to add my own work to this background if that is alright. May I? I really like this.

Thanks for liking my works, I appreciate it...
My works are free to use, as long as no one 
claims that it's theirs (who would anyways?)

this inspires me to work on my BG's...(^_^)

me?..oh...I have my own traditional home-made comics at home...so many of them...but digitally...I do want to make a manga (I do have some old samples posted in my gallery)...to tell you the truth...I'm itching to make one...but it requires a lot of preparation and dedication, time as well..I don't have them now...but if given a chance...I will....I know myself...once I set my mind on something...I could finish a manga series from page 1 to volume 13 just like before...(^_^)

apologies for very late reply....

thanks thanks very much for liking my work....

BG's are tricky...until now I'm learning...I just keep a mindset that "I'm not afraid of BG's"..since some avoid it for it's convenient. If you try to like BGs and observe your surroundings and references...I bet you'll be a very good BG artist yourself...(^_^)...cheers and Happy New Year!!!

(^_^)....Detailed BG's is like drawing a character, only, more brain-wrecking. You observe your surroundings, memorize the details of what you see, the buildings, the trees..(or you can imagine them yourself) then think of an appropriate setting, set the lighting according to the mood.....the lighter the tone the happier it gets, keep in mind the shadows..it's the hard part...that's much I can share to you...I'm in the middle of mastering BG's myself...hope we can improve....(^_^)

Whaaa, oo, napag-alaman ko yung tungkol sa Sketch-up sa deviant din na magaling sa BG...yung ang sikreto sa mahusay na BG...But...this one is a pure hand made one...I don't know..I feel like I'm cheating when I use shortcuts, as if I'm severing my attachment to my art..weird...but I'll try sketch up too when I have time...

anirhapsodist Featured By Owner Aug 15, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
perhaps not cheating - you know how matte painters do their genre - everything are pieces of reality. Sketch-up should be the same - from my experience using the product, it can't really generate really good images unless we do some futher editing. those editing consists of cross format editing. ysing a print screen, saving a png or jpeg, relining it in sai, coloring it or painting it with PS or painter x.

Oh, I learned a lot again....it takes skill to use Sketch up....sounds challenging, do you know where can I get a Sketch up? :icononegaiplz:

Homg perspective kicks my ass like hard core... ;w ; So I applaud your work on this piece it looks like it must've taken quite some time to do. Well, for me I know it would have been a really long time with me kicking and screaming through the mud. XD;
Very nicely done! I can actually spot the horizontal line, and the vanishing point, which is more than likely because there aren't people in it as of yet. xD I a wait the finished piece. :3

Hokage3 Featured By Owner Aug 2, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Thanks for he dynamic compliment..(^_^)..

Yes it does took time to do..I'm still not used to doing BG's, it takes time to get the colors in harmony, not to mention getting the proportion, angles and details at least close to being right...I experimented with it a lot, so I discovered some techniques that will be handy in the future....I had fun with it...I know you can make awesome backgrounds too...it is frustrating at first, but with patience...you can do something better than this..

yes...BG alone is hard, but putting people on it is another thing...you have to get the ration right, from the nearest person to the person at the back....then the lighting..etc..etc...all considering the interaction with the BG....thus I will challenge myself into doing so....I'm putting human details on it at the moment...I hope I don't screw it up...

You're very welcome. ^^

Oh I know, I just don't do them normally for all of the above reasons that you mentioned. xD I did at one point start to randomly want to draw characters in random situations and I tell you this it's really hard to do when you don't even know the first thing about perspective! XD I kind of faked it, but it was obvious that I didn't know what I was doing if one were to look at the drawing in which I'm talking about. xDD

I shall one day conquer this villainous perspective and we'll live happily ever after when I do. :cuddle:

How are you so good with perspective!?
Reply
:iconhokage3:
Hokage3 Featured By Owner Aug 2, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Perspective is tricky...really tricky, but with a use of guides, it will aid you in making things a bit easier.....I use my very own guides...a set of horizontal lines, vertical lines and some kind of "line burst" (<<<google it heh)..all meeting with a big cross hair as its center.

when I use the guide...it makes my eyes cross a little, so I lower its opacity. with that I can decide the horizon and the vanishing point....the rest is free for all design....hope I answered your question ...(^_^)
