The finished gift art to xbuimonsama to whom I also give permission to post, if desired. ^\^.
The city scene was easy to to, and quick as well. The shading and other coloring on the body took a lot more time taking up three work sessions over three days. It would took more time just to blend in the shade and highlights until I discovered the wonders of motion blur. LOL. ^\/^.
I love the shading on the body, though I am certain I have some of the anatomy wrong, so far as always (LOL), and the city seems so plain. I am also not completely happy with the wings and the markings on the speedo, but I can only do so much with them with what I know about my Photoshop Elements 6 program. LOL. ^\/^.
The city scene (as yet destroyed as a tendency, ROFL) is a business and shopping district. The city road is a four lane avenue since Xbuimonsama is a little too big for normal streets. LOL. ^\/^.
This picture is my first picture with popping veins and is also my first macro picture. Originally it was going to be just a fanart gift until I took note that Xbuimonsama recently reached four years on Furaffinity. As such, I made it an anniversary fanart gift. LOL. ^\/^.
Since Xbuimonsama is blue, I used the color red in my shading to help contrast it. For the highlights I used a really light blue. I forgot how many layers I used on this. The city scene alone has less layers used in its making than that what the figure has. The shadow I had fun with since I cut it up and skewed each piece to better fit around each building to make it seem more like the shadow is being reflected on multiple areas and not just one. The bottom right hand corner river was originally going to be the top of a building, but it was beginning to suck royally and, ergo, I changed it to a river area. LOL. ^\/^.
