Aphrodite by sonialeong Aphrodite by sonialeong
Commissioned by Comicdom Con - Athens, Greece, for the convention book cover 2011. I thought since that it was a Greek convention, a Greek Goddess would be appropriate ^^

Pencilled by hand then coloured in Paint tool SAI. All colours on one layer (as that's the best way to mix colours in that software, I feel :3).

Thank you so much! I was invited to draw the cover for the convention booklet of an event in Athens, Greece - so I thought it would be appropriate to draw a Grecian Goddess ^^

I heard many digital artists don't like to work colours all in one layer, but you did a great job there, it gives the image a very interesting and personal touch.
The composition and colours are lovely too, I'm sure she looked great at the Greek convention :)

Ooo, your colors always look so complex, it's impressive you do it on one layer like that. I suppose that's why it never has the digital overwork look of a lot of art these days.

Oh thank you ^^ I still need to practise my colour mixing. Mmm, I know what you mean, my favourite pieces are the ones which are just painted very well, and the only way to get better at that really is to be very clever with colour choices and to leave a fair amount of brush texture in there/not blur the hell out of everything!

Not that I'm at all good with color, but I do try to do right by my lines at least.

What actually frustrates me a lot is a lot of the kids drawing with an anime-manga influence and smearing digital cheapness all over it. Later, when they start learning some actual technique, they turn around and say eastern art in general is garbage because they didn't know what they were doing back then.

I think maybe there should be a lock on blur and dodge functions until you log something like 100 hours on an application. :3
