Girl on a Ship by Risachantag Girl on a Ship by Risachantag
Yay for original titles!

Uh... I don't usually do this sort of style; it's a lot more shoujo than what I normally draw. I just sketched it at uni then decided quite randomly that I wanted to try colouring it.

^_^; Well, I guess it's good practise to experiment with other styles and stuff, so I'm glad I at least attempted it. I didn't really spend as much time on the background as I should, but it's my sister's birthday party in a few hours and I need to go get stuff ready, and I wanted to get this done today.

I really need to get better at drawing ships... A friend asked me to do a comission a while back involving one, and I still haven't started because the idea of drawing the background's still kinda daunting. I feel a bit more confident about it now, though. (I'll get it done soon Doug, honest! *runs off to get ready*)

Really awesome! I'd love to see you draw my alana in this style!

This is absolutely awesome. It's simple, apposite and does not try to hide something. On top of that it's extremelz adorable and I would say more things like that, but in the end I'd just repeat another person. ;)

Ooh, I absolutely adore this. her hair and hand and face most of all. The only thing that bugs me is at the right underarm of her shirt, I see a little blue peeking through.
Anyways, I think the simple background is very suiting. You don't want to distract the eye too much. (Did I mention I love the sky and the birds in the sky? The clouds are amazing.)

Reminds me of my afterprom which had a "Pirates of the Caribbean" theme. ^^;

I love it! Especially her hair, blowy in the wind.

Yay! Someone can tell it's a boat! *does a happy dance*

Yeah... "shoujo-ish" is probably a good description ^^;

WOW! Unbelievable. I luv the shading and the way you drew her hair. :)
Ferntree Featured By Owner May 1, 2004
:wow: Whoaaaaa this is SOSOSO good! I love the way you've done this! The way that the outline is visible in some bits and not on others. The hair and the hands are my favorite things about this pic. Ooh and the lovely shirt sleeve.

I am in awe of the picture.
krazedkaigrrl Featured By Owner May 1, 2004
Wow! The color and detail and everything is just breath-taking! I don't know what to say, but this is absolutely gorgeous. I think it looks awesome, this being the first time you tried that style! Looks like your already an old pro!

SweetSugar01 Featured By Owner May 1, 2004
wow this is really amazing :)
dia-aren-marie Featured By Owner May 1, 2004


It's nice to experiment with different styles, though. That way you can have a vast array of ways to color or draw and it's pure fun rar XD

On the pic - she looks so pretty! I love her hair (I can't do smooth hair, really, but I've been trying @_@) and I think the background is nice :3 Sorta makes me think of a painting which has 'PIRATE GIRL OF LEGEND' splattered all over it XD
Cosnett Featured By Owner May 1, 2004
