So this is the ocean by G--u--y So this is the ocean by G--u--y
EDIT!: Gah this is the last time i'm touching this picture...(for a while), really fixed up the background thanks to some helpful critique, thank you K-haza and s-h-i-g-e-r-u!

And i'm finished, decided to slip Daath into the background there, pretty sure it's not that close to rocky mountains in the over world... oh well.

I still need plenty of practice concerning backgrounds and scenery but for my first one, It's not too bad.

I hope you guys like it.

Oh wow. I love the style you used to paint this! The feeling is very clear on Luke's face. It's almost like you can tell he's breathing in that ocean air.

Wow. This is absolutely incredible. I love it--the beautiful style of painting you have is just incredible, everything's so neat and clean and shaded so perfectly, and I just love the touch of crispness (totally a word) and smoothness of it all! Luke's upturned face--gyah! And his HAIR! The way you drew his poofy hair is really brilliant, and the color of it is just gorgeous~ <3
Incredible work! I hope you'll paint more, because I really love your style~ <3

Luke and Tear both look really amazing! I love the style you've made them look, and how tear is not wearing her clothes like always <3
The BG bothers me a bit. Both Tear and Luke look so detailed and you can see that a lot time has been used while drawing them, so the BG looks really hurried. Daath looks okay, because it has clear lines, but everywhere else one can see the brush storkes and especially those mountains look don't look good. If you'd make them sharper and use different colours on them, not just one, the whole picture would look a lot more professional.

I know that Luke and Tear are the main point in this picture, and they look so amazing, so it saddens me a bit that the BG doesn't make them justice. I really love how you still have a few details on the background, like the birds and their reflection!

I couldn't stop thinking about what you said, so i decided to fix up the Background, I hope you think find this one a little better than the previous.

Yes!! This looks absolutely amazing!! The clearer lines on the background make it more alive and the whole picture got ten times more volume after the changes you made!

It's just... wow. Amazing development!

Ah, thank you for your comment, I'm still learning how to draw BG's, maybe sometime in the future I'll remake the BG for this, I'll keep what you said in mind!

I love the coloring on this. You really brought the characters to life!! The hair is so interesting. Honestly I think this is very unique! :D

Although, I think you made Luke look a lot older in this picture. That's not necessarily a bad thing, and it might just be me. But that's just what I thought. Then again you don't get abs like Luke has while being super slender, so it does make sense... I guess maybe he would look older than the concept art makes him out to be. Or at least larger. Oh those aneemus and their impossibly muscled children!

Thank you, i'm glad you think so ; _ ;

I "may" have bulked Luke up a tad, and ikr, it's like being an protagonist gives you a rock hard set of abs and a fancy haircut.
