:bulletpink::bulletorange:Picture This: Mona&Su-Mi:bulletorange::bulletpink:
An arc in a collaborated girl's love anthology, Picture This
By *Tyshea and ~Aibi-Cake

-----

So this started out as me randomly deciding Su-Mi plays a Ukulele (because it's so underground LOL)
and wanting to sketch it

OBVIOUSLY IT DID NOT STAY A SKETCH.

But that's okay! :dummy:
because I got to experiment with backgrounds and patterns and textures and-and THIS PIECE TURNED OUT PRETTY AWESOME.
YEAH I'M KINDA PROUD.

also I got this done in a day...I am feeling pretty good :|
yay for labor day weekend, now back to the work grind, LOL



Anyway, LOL
this picture is when Monica first lays eyes on Su-Mi
SO ROMANTIC.

If you know the reference of the title, congrats, you just gained some insight into Su-Mi's personality, and a bit of a cohesive theme in the M&S story

-----

/begin technical jargon that you probably won't care about
I'm playing around a lot with Graphic design elements in PT as a general theme...a lot of typography and strong shapes with focus on the characters, bold lines, and patterns/textures.
such as seen below

*needs to stop plugging this picture omg*

In this piece, particularly, I was trying to keep things generally flat and designed, while still trying to give the environment depth using value changes and atmospheric perspective

I think it's working...and it definitely helped me get a better idea on how I want to tackle the backgrounds in the comic :)
gonna experiment with this some more!
/end technical jargon that you probably won't care about LOL

Others in the PT Side B character illustration series:

One last little thing from me...
Thanks for all the support and notes from the last picture, I am feeling much better, and the issues are calming down for now.

The support is endlessly helpful, so thank you everyone :blushes: :heart:
I may not have replied, but I always read all the comments <3

You should do a segment with all your characters called "How to dress like"
I think it would be so cool to see all the characters in a bunch of outfits that fit their personality!

This pic is so peaceful and calming with the fairly toned-down range of colours, and reminds me of some of the pastoral/bucolic depictions of Pan or Orpheus playing to the animals in a forest glade. Except this version replaces the panpipes with a ukulele and whistling, the animals with a crow, and adds Costa and a Mac. So bucolic art for a modern audience and immensely improved in the process :XD:

(Apologies if those aren't the proper terms, I'm not an art or design type person T_T)

this is very beautiful..the colors.. i mean the texture just really gives that very cool/mix of warm color and romantic feeling that the piece is expressing of the character looking at su for the first time.

but yeah amazing job with the little details// love the background .both of you having some thing really amazing set up here..with the story and spontaneous expression of art that goes into each character and moment in time.. i mean like the action..the theater moment that is happening

i mean like there so many teens these days who are bi,straight,gay ..that are slowing opening up in high school or in college..or even just after all that..it just the project you both doing does show this support for these people. that there not alone .
