First things first. Happy Birthday Capricorn Shura. A little late, but at least you have a gift e__e. (12/1)
As for now, big text. I was totally in love with Mia's request journal. Shion, Mu and Shura. OMG I freaked out. It's not everyday that we see Saint Seiya fans in Secret Panda, so yeah. And it came right in time because I'm in a total SS nostalgia fever <3 and so I decided I'd do my best for this one. The first few attempts on his armor were a complete fail and looked ugly. I even considered doing just whatever and leave it be, but something hit me and I had this inspiration thing. I started working, working non stop. I didn't even bother to zoom out, but when I did... I fell in love with it and I had barely finished his arm piece. After they were done I just could stop. I finished this piece in one day NON STOP (just dinner and nature calls, obviously) no other work, no side-tracking. Just pixeling it. And I felt good; it has been a long time since I felt like that while doing pixel stuff. I must say that the purple cloth thing and his hair were the most difficult things to do. Other than that, this went pretty smooth, even for a big base. I've been part of SP for a long time now and I took part in almost every exchange that existed since I joined, and this one was... THE exchange. It's been a long while since I was so exited about it. The last many, although I liked them, I felt no challenge, they were kind of dull to me, just the same characters. The biggest challenge was finding a base and motivation, not this one. I felt like I did one big jump <3 So this time, I am not going to say "Hope you like it, mia" I am saying this:
Thanks for giving me the best panda exchange so far in my life. <3 I can still feel inspiration burning inside me. I just can't explain, it feel so good. And I feel no pain during the process, so thank you VERY much ~mia-chan-p. I owe you one.
Also, one more thing 8D My friend said once to me: "When the person is not awesome enough to be born under the Aquarius sign, it's born under Capricorn" So blessing to all of you of the Capricorn sign. You are awesome! (almost as awesome as us 8D)
(Yeah, I've been recently feeling some major pains in the stomach area, but not during this <3)
Ja falei td q eu tinha q falar la sua monstra xD, pena q minha net n deixou eu ver a coisa até o fim, mas enfim... parabens o.o, ficou mto foda. (n sei se espero pelo Camus, medo do q vc for fazer com ele se fizer xD)
E sim... agora q o cara ai de cima falou..realmente a cabeça ficou parecendo pequena ou sei la...não q isso importe msm.
Excellent job! The palettes used look great and the shading is great, especially on the cloth. Those folds! The shading on the arm piece is well-done, but the main body's armor, especially on the torso look off. Maybe if the lightest shades were more around the center of the chest downward instead of on the outer edges?
Other than that everything looks great, and it's amazing that you got this done so diligently! Keep it up!
oh Thanks <3 Well, I have to agree. But, for a first gold armor, it looks pretty decent to me @_@ maybe with a little more practice I redo this and make it look better~ Thanks for the critique, sweetheart <3
