Sanctuary by Raayzel Sanctuary by Raayzel
Somewhere to escape from all the disappointments, worries and fears.

Hello! I've finally finished all my exams and graduated highschool, yay!! This piece is pretty much based on getting away from all the disappointments i've experienced this busy year. I was going to do something angsty, but i'm not really good at that heh. Tried to make it less messy, but i think i've still got a long way to go.

And um she's painting butterflies?

Photoshop, SAI, 1wk (on and off)

This is super beautiful! I hope I can have that much patience with art someday. I think my suggestion is if you are trying to make it less 'messy', maybe if you removed the two trees in the center of the image way in the background above the butterflies and just had that yellow light shining back there it might open up more breathing room, but the way you color and texture is epic!

Heya your back!!

I love the bright colours which are added in small bits it works so well!
Love the idea of painting butterflies.
As always love the amount of detail in your picture and the backgrounds
I suppose the only thing i can critique is the blurred detail in the foreground in the background wouldn't make much difference.
I know you said your guna make it less messy so i suppose you've identified that :)
I think it's great you didn't go with angst that's kinda cliche so yeah :)
As for my little get away from the world i just listen to music or play it on me guitar and sing my heart out.

How have you been anyway?

Haha yes im finally free from school!

Thank you! I've been meaning to cut down with the rainbow on this one. What do you mean by the blurred detail? O:

That sounds like a good get away plan! I'd prob do that too, if i could play an instrument ahah.

And i've been lazing around lately, hopefully i can churn out alot of art in my break ^u^

WOOO!

Haha well aslonG as you don't get rid of the rainbow! XD

The blurred detail i meant to the right of the picture the flowers or is that meant to be like that the tree detail at the fronts seems a lil blurred?
Haha yes most def is it's a bugger though when someone walks in the room and breaks that meditation. Well i could teach you guitar or the basics of bass if ya like? i could do it through a few different ways over the net.

Ah ok cool sounds good so what's the next step for you school wise?

hm i guess the rainbow seems rly popular with my watchers haha, def will keep it.

Oh it's prob just something that i didn't get to render properly //orz
And oh no it's fine! I tried learning the guitar once and completely gave up in less than a week. I guess if there's something I lack in patience, its the will to learn instruments. Haha, its just not my forte.

And university! ^u^

Well not every artist uses it in their artwork it's sort of your signature but the way you do it it works. I suppose it's just putting it into every picture in different ways which you do mostly i think even if you can't put it in like on the eyes or the light maybe put it in as a rainbow in the sky or as a piece of jewellery or on a t shirt in the picture to still have it in there.

Ahhh ok

Haha ok well the way i teach you learn fast and well cause i give you all the info you need and you can pick it up quick so if ya ever get the hankering just lemme know and i'll set ya up :)

Uni wooo to do something medical wasn't it?

Wow it really reminds me of "The secret of mana," art style.
If the game became an animated series I would think you would be the perfect choice as the lead artist.
