Dreampunk: Sun Tarot Final by ExiledChaos Dreampunk: Sun Tarot Final by ExiledChaos
Second tarot project, final of [link]

Sun Tarot, featuring Bianca and Stilts x3 One day.... I'll write about their story. Till then, I'll keep you guessing ;P Here's a hint though: She's a Queen and he's her Knight. Yay child prodigies 8D duurr

This was also mixed media, like the Moon . Made base colors and textures in watercolor, and details in PS. I also opted out of the little monsters in the WIP =( sadly. I just don't feel like doing much more with it (might have to do with my toe...). Yeahh... it's one of those meh issues again. It's done enough and I'm fairly happy with what's there, but I feel I could do more with it. Oh well. I need to focus on my remaining crapload of homework >>;

Anyway enjoy.


Bianca, Stilts, and their story elements belong to me.

Did I mention how cool this was? Okay, this is beautiful! I love the coloring and the sheer depth that appears to be there. And I really like the flames. The layered affect and low to high opacity gives it the allusion of moment, that I have to say makes it all the more stunning.

This is MUCH better than your color study. I love all the different colors and textures you worked into the background. The reds especially really give the impression that the knight guy is glowing.

I also like the rendering on the figures, but I think that you still play it a little too safe with areas like the girl's hair and dress; her doll is more visible than she is because of the soft purples used to light it. Even if the girl's dress is very light, putting some soft blue or purple along the edge will really define the form more and make her pop rather than having her blend in with all the glowiness.

I think if you had more time, too, you could even enhance the texture in the background a little more with digital brushes-- check out some of the custom brush/texture packs available here on dA even. You can get some really neat effects with those, especially if you layer them over the watercolor textures.

Overall though, much improved from the color study and very cool-looking in its own right.

Ahh, thanks! =) Glad you like it so much. I guess it kinda threw me off, since the moon card has so much more depth, and this seems more flat and centralized, but I really enjoyed preserving those textures and colors along the edges. The girl was especially hard to do though since I was retarded with the scanning and had to do some weird stuff to make her visible, and I was also conflicted since I want her to be a light source too, but I also want to show more detail in her gown and hair without lossing that impression >.< hmmm... lol, I'll still tinker with it, thanks for the crit =)

Also, if I don't see you tomorrow in Jim's class, have a good summer. We should all get together sometime and see a movie or hang out or something x3 Keep in touch, and hopefully see you next semester!

It actually seems like this card has more depth to me, but that may just be because like I said, on my monitor the moon is super bright and I can't see all the details because they get washed out.

I'll be in class today... whether or not my piece will be done remains to be seen. Still, I made some decent progress last night so I have some hope.

And yes, we totally should hang out this summer. :3 Maybe go see 'Up!' when it comes out?

Aha. Dang, I even adjusted the contrast alittle in the other one, but I guess it's still pretty washed out? =\ I think my eyes are too tired at looking at it xD Eh.

I'm alittle more hopeful today then I was yesterday, since I was able to work on my protrait for a good long while and at least get a nice preliminary thing happening. I was only unsure about going to class since I have a 3hour break between my classes today, and I would have also had to walk from the IT building, and I didn't know if my toe would behave through that. But Liz told me she's rid of her classes for today so I can get a ride from her =3 So I think I'll be able to come.

Ah yes! x3 I'm so excited for that movie x3 looks so cool and cute. Oh! I was going to ask what classes you have next semester. We should also go see 9 when it comes out (lol, not during the summer, but thought I'd throw it out there)

Ah, yes, walking across campus with only half a toe would be a pain. ;)

Next semester I'm taking Handbuilding Ceramics, Advanced Illustration I, Independent Study in Illustration, and J400.

And yes, we should go see 9. That looks like it's gonna be awesome. Speaking of later in the year, the new Ghibli movie, Ponyo on the Cliff, comes out August 14th. It's not a deep movie, but it is very cute, and may be worth a watch.

I'm actually pretty impressed that there are so many good animation movies coming out this year. Next year's Oscars may have some interesting competition instead of another freebie for Pixar. ;)

xDD lol, and now it doens't even matter... I ended up walking across campus anyway =P ehh.. my toe didn't bleed out at least, though it was throbbing pretty bad after I got to Herron. Mostly ok though x3

Hmm... I'm debatig whether to take advanced illustration or not, or an indy study... Since I have the double major, I need to finish my credits with each school at the same time, so I have to easy up on the herron class just so I can catch up with new media >>; Buuuut... it's so tempting x3

Eee! I wanna see that so bad. I haven't even had time to look up picture for it, just know about what you've told me. I loved My Neighbor Totoro, even if it was for a younger audience. And I'd love to see another movie like it =) lol yeah, I can't wait for all these movies. I really hope they're be great (or at least we'll know they'll look good ;) harhar)

:/ Just keep checking to make sure it's not infected, I guess...

I would go with Advanced Illo. You can take an Independent study at any time, and in some ways its easier just to have the structure of an actual class.

Here is the Japanese trailer: [link] I don't think they've released an English trailer yet. I'm trying to find a good video with the theme song, because it's adorable, but I can't find a link just yet.
