(drawn with pencil, colored with watercolors; Neji's forehead protector colored in with black calligraphy pen)
link to baby version of this pic (lineart <XD) -> [link]
. . . at least, epic enough for THEM, I suppose
. And dat grass. The grass helps. But I'll get back to the grass later . . .
Me, I'm not too happy with this
. I like this pic much better when it was a baby, when it wasn't colored in . . . <XD.
Man. I always mess up the coloring SOMEHOW or other -_-' last time the colors were OFF, this time the colors are too . . . SATURATED . . .
And Tenten's hair could be darker. Yeah.
Way to go Aki, you screwed that up TWICE now -_-; . . .
Maybe that's why Tenten was mad at me before, and wouldn't let me draw her; "Why the hell should I BOTHER letting you draw me, Aki, you're just gonna COLOR MY HAIR WRONG later =_="
AW Tenten, I'm sorry, I really am <XD I'll go stick my face in a ton of ref pics in a minute, I promise . . . !
Anyways . . . ugh. -_- I really don't like using saturated VIVID colors, I tend to prefer the dreamier kinda-like-a-faded-photograph-ish watered-down colors
. . . the next thing I color will be like that, I can guarantee you . . .
The only thing I approve of here is the grass. >XD DAT GRASS IS SOME EPIC GRASS . . . . notreally
OOOOOOOH FORGOT THE SONG!!!
This song, been listening to it throughout the entire process of drawin' this, from the rough draft to the baby lineart to the final colored version ^^ and the song makes totally NO sense with this pic
* Neji and Tenten are characters from the manga/anime 'Naruto' by Masashi Kishimoto
