Will You Join Me? by Negshin Will You Join Me? by Negshin
Finally finished... tedious mask was tedious but I think it was worth the effort XD

As I mentioned when I showed the wip earlier, I had designed this picture to be a poster for charity and DA's special UK masquerade event that a few of us are trying to organize.

With apologies, I am no longer able to participate in the event ^^;

-----------------------------------------------------
BIG Thank You to Nova-chan [:iconlunaticsupernova:] and Kaze-chan [:iconkaze25:] who have put up with me ranting about this piece while pestering them with the drafts :heart:
I owe the smoldering look and the lack of what was a previously very pompous hairstyle to them XD

[and in case you were wondering, yup, older Mikalo has a scar mark across his face]

Whoooooaaaaaaa, the details in the mask and in his clothes are INCREDIBLE!!! That must have taken absolutely forever to do!!! But definitely paid off! This looks great!!!

It's so old, I honestly can't recall... but the likelihood of the mask having driven me nuts are likely cause I have so many versions of it still saved somewhere ^^;
Thank you so much :love:

This is gorgeous! How did you make things like the buttons, lacing and the incredible detail on the mask? Do you perhaps let photos aid you, or draw it, or use certain tools/techniques? I'd love to know how that works and practise at it!
Stay Awesome~:heart:

I don't use photos or use certain tools, pretty much everything is default brushes.... and I did do a lace tutorial after this cause of requests: Realistic Lace Tutorial
LOL Actually this was a milestone picture for me so I will be redrawing it again (goodness it's also old ^^;) and this time, I will hopefully record my process and show it.
Thank you so very much :tighthug:

Awesome! Thank you for your answer and the tutorial, I will definitely delve into it and practise a lot. :la: :tighthug:
The details look so nice.. You're really skilled indeed at drawing them by hand and using photoshop so intelligently! I'm still a far cry away, but art like this truly inspires me. :D
Good luck on your redraw, guess art can never be too perfect haha. Can't wait to see! I hope you can record your process succesfully. :happybounce:

LOL, let's hang in there together, there are no limit to improvements so we'll just do our best :heart:
Actually to clarify, when I say I don't use photos I mean in pictures but I think it's VERY important to go and study things from life/photos in order to learn and understand how they look/work. For example, if I have a piece with feathers in it, I go and study real feathers first, do a few painted studies then go and approach drawing them in my picture. It's a great way to understand and develop a visual memory of things so you can draw them much easier and accurately from imagination in the future ^_^

You're very welcome, thank you again :love:

You're absolutely right! I did not do any studies beforehand. Gonna change that now! :D
This comment stack became long in the end lol. But I really appreciate your help and time. No really thank you so much. I've learned a lot of small crucial and fundamental things I overlooked. D:

Yes, please do, studies are very important. They are what helps artists get better both technically and theory wise ^^
