A New Oath by Aetherya A New Oath by Aetherya
The sky is aliiiiiiive~ with the raaainbow vo~mit~~~ :dummy:

A tablet is a good object.

I used *purplekecleon's AMAZING color tutorial as a crutch for coloring, and I expect to keep doing so, even though I'm still trying my @$$ off to understand it fully ^^;

From what I infer, you must do the BACKGROND FIRST and then color the subjects in relativity to the background? :I Ha! Haha! Hah! I TOTALLY KNEW THAT ALL ALONG!!! :iconimhappyplz: <<brick'd

That's what I did here, btw. ^^;

...I'm the least satisfied with the sky... And Darky's dress... =.=

EDIT: Edited the shading on Darkrai's dress. I was brain-fried in the end when I was coloring it xD

Wait! Download is now enabled! I meant to able it, but I had disabled it instead as I always do >.<

... Man, it fascinates me XD
Well it's well know, true artists are never satisfied with their work XD

It... doesn't look like a REAL sky ;___;

But that's true. Artist's vision. >.<

Did Monet or Cezanne painted things that looked real?
Painting is not necesarily representing reality, but what we feel about that reality :)

I believe I have to "master" reality first before I can become Monet or Cezanne. xD

:omg: The background coloring is incrediably well-done. I love how you made the colors appear flowy and paint-like, as well as having them move in one direction, yet at the same time spreading out across the image. Not only that, to me, your drawing gives the impression that there's a slight breeze, which is cool! Also, with the combination of Kellyn's expression and pose, and the fact you have Darkrai in there too...
:la:
I LOVE IT!
But Pacherisu's eyes kinda scare me... I mean, to me it looks like there's an strange looking little person on Kellyn's shoulder... but hey, your drawing is special that way :meow:
Oops, am I rambling? :sheepish:

Hee, I love long relevant comments! Thanks! 8D

I still kinda don't like the background, but people seem to think otherwise, so I won't complain. :XD:

And I was still figuring out how to draw Pachirisu's eyes back here. ^^; I now know that this style isn't the best choice for him xDD They look too human for him. xD I don't blame you. They scare me too o_O;;

Really, really thank you! :iconcuteglompplz:

Anytime. :)
To be honest, I don't know how you don’t favor the background-well, I guess if you imagine a rainbow hurling on your drawing, that'll do it.

On that note, I think Darkrai's dress is a clever version of Darkrai's actually body. I mean, having the bottom of the dress jagged, along with the cuffs of her sleeve being similiar to Darkrai's claws, and then there's the collar which is proportionally neat. Oh, and the belt is a nice touch as well. :)
All in all, her dress is a nice interpretation for what Darkrai would appear as in human form. How her dress is of least satisfaction to you, I'll never know. :shrug:
Well now that I'm looking closely at Darkrai, is that one stand of hair (on her face) supposed to go under her eye? I just noticed but...

Anywho, for Pachirisu, if you went with the original eye style-you know, the 'button' eyes, Pachirisu would probably look even more scary with this whole poetic scenery O_O just think about it... :ohnoes:
I don't know, maybe if the head was less standing oval and more sideways oval, then the squirrel's eyes would appear less... haunting... :omg:
Anytime, anytime. :happybounce:

There I go rambling again. Oh well. :meow:

Yes. Darkrai's dress looks like a Darkrai's actual body, but as a piece of clothing, the design is rather unconventional. ^^; Especially that collar, how does it work anyway? o_O

That hair does indeed go under her eye, but I chose to not draw the part that covers her face too much xDDD

I don't like "button eyes" for Pachirisu anyways ;) I do have a style figured out now, or so I hope. :XD:

Thanks for the input :aww:

Eh, people have weird senses of fashion anyway. :P

Okay, I wasn't quite sure if you meant to draw that strand of hair or not. XP

Really? I'm fine with Pachirisu's normal eyes.

Your welcome. :hug:

...The dress being weird actually does work, though. My idea is that Darkrai is a total fashion bomb as a human xD

I just didn't think that the dress was even... possible. xDD

Who knows, maybe the dress is possible, but it would be uncomfortable, that's for sure. :P

Kellyn looks so cool when he looks up into the skye. The should have doe that in the anime, instead of him just smiling... though he was still cute.

I've always wanted to make something epic as a homage to SoA, but I failed. And now I am fascinated by you who managed to get it realized.

The sky is simply fantastic and I really don't know how did you get the painting look so naturally. Their faces are just so peaceful. Only thing though, the Pachirisu's eyes are overkill. Ya don't need to overdramatize cute things. =P

Aetherya Featured By Owner Jan 7, 2011  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Olol... Yeah. I definitely know that about Pachi's eyes. xD The thing is that I try not to draw him in his overriding "cute" image, but in that case I think I should try another style. This one makes his face look like a human hybrid. xDD

Thank you very much :aww: I guess the sky looks all right, then Px

...This is gorgeous, Ethy. Darkrai looks beautiful, and Kellyn is rather hot. Those two would make excellent babies... I've already did Alexios and Éclipse in the Sims 2 and their daughter is freaking adorable.

Pachi looks so confused, lol.
