Balance by thienbao Balance by thienbao
I don't really know what to say about this picture other than the fact the it took a hell of a long time. I think the concept is pretty simple and obvious (light vs. dark), other than that you can say pretty much anything else you want. Though it took a long time, it was "fun" to work on this one, especially the hair (hardest part for me).

So, the tech stuff. Well, i used a mouse and a tablet for this one. Tablet courtesy of whytdragon, thanks katie for the tablet, even though the pen pressure option doesn't work cause the CD was lost, but i can't complain, it helped a lot. P.S. if you find it, tell me would ya? ah well, i might just buy a new one.

Well, that's it, if you guys got things to say about this picture, feel free to do so.(heh, trying to get more page views, sad)

I LOVE the swirling shapes you have going on here: their hair, their clothing as it tears, even their wingtips, all amazing!

This picture reminds me of Belldany's Holy Bell. Holy Bell is from a show called "Ah my goddess" from Japan. You should take a look. And also for the dark angel for Belldandy's sister Urd. But Urd's angel is have holy and un holy. You have to see it. I guess it would be a mix of Belldandy and Urd's angel. I love it

I see that u like to work with photo shop and ur good at it too.
For some reason this style of pix reminds me of character of Belldandy from the movie "Ah my Goddess!"
It has its similarity. Do you draw for a profession or just for fun?

I think you managed creat with the hair and I love the "good" side's vibrant beautiful eyecolour.

and about the cd for the pen pressure. you can search for drivers on the web, just type in which model you have and drivers and then you should be able to find their homepage =)
I do it all the time since I won't bother with picking up the cd when it takes less time to download it and don't's not illegal ;)

keep up the good work =)

I've been looking at the page of someone I'm watching and she got this painting in her favorites. I like it. Do you use a Wabom tablet? If so, is it a Graphire? I can't send you the CD but, I can upload to my gallery some instructions if you're interested. Just note me. I'm sure even if you're not using a Wacom Graphire tablet the settings I'm using may help. I gotta find the CD first but, after that I can make a few screen grabs for you.

The clean lines and soft colors are very nice here. In addition to the light/dark theme, the use of precise, deliberate character lines also contrasts the soft nature of the colors and background.

they remind me of the angels in the anime Ah! my goddess~~
