Those, who are good with portrets rejoice again! :dance

IT'S IZUMO AND KOTETSU!!!

Yeah, Team Asuma Chuunins are the cover models this week. I guess it's only normal to have them as we've had Asuma portrait recently and last week it was Shikamaru.

Speaking of difficulty, it seems as complicated as the one we had last week. Not too hard, but some details might require certain artistic giftedness. In short, it's a great cover for both, experienced artists and beginners. Don't be afraid to give it a try. Up until now, I've never seen somebody being bashed because his work doesn't look like the one made by Vhea or DD. They probably weren't that good at the beginning as well. It all comes with time and work.

As Gallery might come back at some point again, here are a bit updated hints:

1) Show the group you dedicate this work to.
2) If you want your work to be put in our gallery, write for which group you want it to be.
3) If you don't want to contribute to groups, we have a section named "For Fun". You can use it as a solution.
4) System accepts pictures only, if they're smaller than 1024 KB.
5) If you want a short comment to be added, say so and say what comment.
6) If you don't know which group to contribute, check the gallery sections. Maybe you can decide that way.
7) If you don't show the group or state "for everyone", work's put in "For Fun" section.
8) As Shannaro site seems to be down ATM, you can post contributions to them here as well.
9) If you just want to show your work, ignore all the reminders above.
10) Remember to have fun, doing your pictures.
:amuse

Thanks for showing us those DD and Vhea. It's just great to be able to see where you started and where you are now. I have to say though, both covers are still excellent! I also really like it when artists show works in progress (DD has done that) and when they show alternative versions to one cover (like what AK46 often does). We fans really appreciate it! :D

haha yeah, what vhea said is true ^^ just keep practicing and try out new styles ^^ thats the quickest way to learn, and how I learned ^^

but still, after two years of photoshopping, i still dont have the hang of using the pen tool 8O XD o well, my loss, hopefully i can learn it somehow XD

I'm the same DD - spied AK's avatar and immediately went looking for the cover! Where is it?!? I'm going crazy not being able to see the finished piece! :D

By the way DD, I love your Hidan line art. Can't wait to see it coloured. It's full of energy that one - a classic action shot. Should come up well with colour.

I see that all contributions so far are amazing :o Too bad the gallery is still down :sad Hmm... I think I'll use ak46's White Fang wallpaper one of these days, but after some resizing (more like cropping actually then set it centered) because my laptop's resoultion is 1280x800.

I finished coloring most of it but I'm reworking the background. Right now I'm not at home so probably monday it will be finish. BTW your sig is really nice. [br]Posted on: September 08, 2006, 02:25:12 PM_________________________________________________

YAY! It's finished!

Awesome work AK (don't you ever get sick of being told that?):D

This is actually slightly different to your usual style I think...I can't quite work out how...maybe the colours look a little more 'solid' and the lines a bit sharper? It looks really smooth - not as much of a raw edge to this one (which is what I love so much about your usual style). Love the detail on the bench they're sitting on and how you can still see the hatching in their shadows. I like the tree in the background and how the colour of the sky is a bit lighter (brighter?) on the left hand side.

I think...this might turn out to be my favourite of yours so far (but it's hard to choose between this and the one of Sasuke with the snake).

Well done!!! :p
