AT: Under the Red Sky by Waittiz AT: Under the Red Sky by Waittiz
My trade part for :iconanka97:. She asked me to do a picture of her phoenix character Solaris and I was happy to oblige. I like Solaris' design (and his armors! xD ) a lot.

Ah, what should I say about this picture... I thought about doing my oldest trades first but lately I've been struggling with them so much that I wanted to work on something else. And at least I still feel confident about working on pictures of phoenixes even though I think I've lost most of the grip I used to have of bird anatomy. Oh well, my style is anyway far from realistic.

My first vision of this piece was quite far away from the result. Then I added there some flames. And a red sky. And then I messed around with the layers and layer styles (again) and the sky ended up looking like that. Not that I would mind, though.

Okay, that's enough with blabbering.

Hope you like it, Anka!

Check out Anka's part for me: <3

I finished this work from about the half-way with my new tablet and the first nib of the pen is quite well worn out... Oh gosh...

As always, I'm just in awe of your patience when it comes to both draw and colour feathers, so many lovely details to observe <3
And you are sure amazing at the anatomy of birds, looks actually perfect in my eyes!
Really lovely character with all the colours, armour and everything. You have done a great work with the colouring! :heart:

Awesome work; I love the wingspan here and you did a wonderful job on the armor. :) Gorgeous job with the lighting, too - I like how both the sun and the character's head are a focal point for the pic.

I'm reaaaally glad to know you like it! ^^ Solaris was such an awesome character to be drawn (phoenix + armour = :heart: )
Haha, maybe Solaris is a pyromaniac? xD Or maybe he just likes to watch the dance of flames (I at least like to)

Thank you for the trade too! It was nice to make a trade with you ^^

Oh oh oh jumaliste mä rakastan noiden siipien varjostuksia! ;_; Mutta kuten kauneimmat kukat, nekin on nätimmät tuossa oikealla paikallaan eikä mun sisuksissani popsittuna. Joten jätänpä ne siihen.

Vai tuntee Waittiskin menettäneensä lintu-tajuaan. Mulla vähän sama ongelma. Mutta tässä kuvassa anatomiallisesti häiritsee lähinnä melkein tikkusuorat siivet. (miksi lintu levittelisi niitä noin jos kerran seisoo kivellä?) Mutta noh, Solariksen armori näyttää tosi tyylikkäältä ja oikeasti metalliselta. (mikä on pirun vaikeaa tehdä varjostuksilla aina joskus) Tyksin taustasta ja eritoten tästä valoefektistä tirpan pään takana. : P Myös kivenmöhkäleet ja liekit näyttää sulta nykyään luonnistuvan, mikä ehkä aavistuksen verran potkii meikäläistäkin harjottelemaan taustojen tekemistä. :'D

*Tuijottaa noita siipiä* ... Mikähän niissä varjostuksissa lie niin erikoista ._. Ja ohho, säilyyköhän tämä kuva täällä peräti ihan ehjänä.

No Solaris tiätty lämmittelee noiden ihQjen lieskojen loimussa ja levittelee tikkusuoria siipiään. Mua häiritsee mm. myös tuon reidet, jotka tuntuvat olevan hieman sijoiltaan.
Ja eihän mitään opi jos niitä ei kokeile ja harjoittele. Että eikun harjoittelemaan! Tosin ne lehtipuut on kyllä aina vaan niin... arrrrrrrgh! >_x*

Dankeschöön kommentoinnista!

Reidet sijoiltaan..? Eikös ne ole niveliä jotka venähtää ja lihaksia jotka revähtää, niinhän sitä sanotaan. : D Ilmeisesti tällä on siis lonkat vähän hukassa ja niin kyllä näyttää olevankin kun nyt tarkemmin katsoo.
Ah, lehtipuut. x_x

Ooh, so pretty! :D I'm reminded vaguely of Fawkes the phoenix. I always love how you draw wings, and the background is so pretty! For some reason, I like that rock too. :XD: I think it's because I can never get them to turn out right.

Thank you! ^^ I guess rocks, like everything, just need a lot of practise so you can find a suitable method for yourself to draw/paint them. Experimenting different methods is sometimes as important as practising itself :)
