High resolution if you please!~
Theme #99- Solitude
And my Secret Santa gift to jinwu on deviantart for the RQ-SSE-2011 Event on Deviantart~!<3
I don't know him at all LOL, but since I am allowed to post on theOtaku before the deadline, I wanted to submit it here ^^ He's a really great artist.
His character, Xiao Rai-Lin in the forest alone. I read through his personality profile/bio thing and it immediately struck me when I read that he was a person who had trouble expressing emotions/loves to spend time alone in a special spot only he knows of that's in the forest. ^^ I was kinda feeling bad about drawing this pic though...especially since the reference pic that he provided was such an action-filled pose. OTL I felt kinda uncreative in comparison T__T
But in any case, I had lots of fun with this! I wanted to practice more with my pencil/CG-mixing, so I hope it didn't turn out too horribly >.< I tried to give it a somewhat old, rustic look, but also keep it bright with colors. I don't know, this is kinda how I envisioned it xD
Done in Adobe Photoshop Elements 5.0 and Paint Tool SAI for coloring with Wacom Intuos3 Tablet.
Drawing done completely with mechanical pencil~!
Texture from...I don't remember OTL. But it's not mine.
