Going Somewhere by fox-orian Going Somewhere by fox-orian
I felt like painting a motion blur.
And reflections. And ambient light.
So I did this scene.

This was the first piece I did utilizing my new revamped brush set seen here: [link]

The blurred out background was painted by first laying down solid shapes of color that resembled foliage. I then took a chisel / palette knife brush and painted those colors out to the left and right on a low opacity. Not too much longer, I ended up with this.

The view reminds me a lot of something you'd expect to see in a game like Riven.

(Edit: This was originally supposed to be Maia XD I suppose she looked really really boyish before. So I altered the shirt a little. I mean, Maia always was a bit of a tomboy, so this isn't a huge problem XD but yeah oops)

I like it a lot, and it has a very positive, hopeful mood to it.

Skill wise, you rock. Both lineart and colouring are both very well executed. You are very tallented.

Congratz, great piece.

First, let me say I absolutely ADORE your art style. It is full of personality, originality, and is just downright gorgeous altogether. :love: And I can honestly say I've browsed and enjoyed nearly every one of your amazing works. (Can I just favorite ALL of them? Ha ha!)

But for some reason, this one really stood out to me, and I'm not sure why... =) Maybe it's the emotion, maybe it's the simplicity, maybe it's the motion and how it tells me a story. But all-in-all, wonderful job, as always, and keep up the great work! :heart: You are incredibly talented and what you do!!

This is really unique. I have never seen a motion drawing this well done.

You should do a tut on how to create this effect.
