Ooookaaaamiii! (Third)

Zeig

This one came out better than the Luna one - the different hair colors really help layer themselves, despite Cadence's hair not being as free-flowing as the other two. Also opted not to give her the swirly shoulder things, since I think it gives her a younger look.

These are phenomenal! The variance between soft and subtle and bold lines is very striking and effective. What did you use to make them?

 

I'm in awe. :) Can't wait to see more!

Thanks kindly! Don't forget to leave a 'Like' if you like~

I work entirely in Photoshop, and usually only use two distinct brushes - one's a calligraphy brush that comes standard in PS (basically a tilted brush that'll give you thicker and thinner lines depending on which direction you stroke the brush. I use it for the body), the other is an ink-styled brush that twists and bends on itself. It's what I use to do the hair. Also I use a texture I downloaded for the background, to mimic a paper/scroll type feel.

In all honesty, if you look at Okami pictures, most have a distinct ink border around everything, all hard lines, because that's the type of art the game is based on - sumi-e is what it's called in Japanese. But for my drawings, I like leaving the hair undefined. It's way easier and cleaner looking, if not lazier!

I really love the pose and expression in this one. It reminds me of a swan. The way you draw hair and wings is always so elegant, I can't deal! Also the heart under her hooves and the cutie mark in the corner are so beautiful!
