Warm Afternoon by fox-orian Warm Afternoon by fox-orian
Just a fun little slice of life picture I decided to do on and off for the past day.

I wanted to try a full semi speed-painted scene WITHOUT using shift constraints or a ruler on my Cintiq. So I had at the picture fully freehand. I like the looser look this has compared to the exactness some of my other work has. Maia's just kinda plopped into the picture pretty lazily. I wasn't focusing on her so much, I was more interested in finishing this location hahah.

Hope you enjoy this new kind of picture from me :)

Little fact: this location was inspired by an alley I live near.
Right there in the middle!

Wow for some reason I REALLY dig your use of lighting. Reminds me of my childhood for some reason - the bright summer sky and calm winds and cicadas. Awesome work

it's so funny when you click on a tutorial and find it's by an artist you already thought was cool!

all your pics: great great great! they got their own individual atmosphere which I like ! :)

(and I just saw, that some of your influences is mirrors edge. Well yes, your pictures look like they show the daily life on the streets of the mirrors edge city. I always wondered how it looks like own there and hey, this comes close. :) )

Like it! Keep up the good work and your style!
