Wham, Bam, look out Sam!
Greg, not so grody
Since coming to understand her bond with Echelon, Natalie's learned that most of her skills- especially extracurricular- are borrowed. There's one thing she didn't have to borrow, however, and that is gymnastics. She found an interest in it as a young child, enjoying the thrill of being upside down and turning and jumping and tumbling. The very physical nature of the discipline also gave her a sense of focus that would later help her learn more offensive skills.

Nat grew to be quite good at it- so much so that even today she has a dexterity well above average. However, as she entered her teen years, it began to dawn on her how... insufficient leotards could be. She rationalized it as wanting to do other things, but every now and then, she does miss the balance beam and parallel bars.

Here we see Natalie apparently deciding to put the uniform on for old time's sake. Carrie is wont to cheer her on for reasons both wholesome and not, but Mr. Surftide- the master of morale- could make the Chess team feel like champions.

's behest. I still prefer OC for sketching, but it's great for painting!

I wonder when his family started using the surname "Surftide" - before or after the Splice?

To hear the students talk about him, the jury's out on whether he even has a family- the prevailing theory is that he's a Flex Elemental, summoned forth when a weight lifter was bitten by a radioactive bicep, and only by beating his athletic records can you banish him back to the realm of the Gym Gods.*

*This theory courtesy of Max. Your mileage may vary.

Hm. *checks odometer* More miles than a prius with a hummer's gas tank full of super premium?

Seems legit.

That leotard is going to be so far up there it's going to take a winch to remove it. o_o;  (Seriously, though, wonderful shapes and shading on this one. n.n)

And it was the shading that really made me switch to SAI full time.  The program just feels right for me, you know?  But like anything, it's really about comfort and what makes you feel good when drawing.

The thing with Sai that I've found is both learning what does what with each tool, and learning how to tweak the tools to your liking.

....and then making duplicates of those tool/settings combos so you can continue to tweak settings on the source tools, but never have to worry "Which brush texture worked with what dilution to what persistence..?" to get a particular blending effect you liked, or texturing effect, etcetera.

Anyways!  This came out awesome, man! :D  As always, Nat's eyes are amazingly eyecatching--even with dem hips and dat booty, it wouldn't be hard to maintain eye contact with her.  Those peepers are pretty enough on their own to gaze into!  But also the lil sparkles in her leotard are a great effect!

And I'm not just saying that because her ass is positively devouring that futuristic spray-on-spandex.  The subtle color offset really pops without being overdone.

Remember, "friends" = "friends with benefits" in the world of Partners. ;)

I think the "friends with benefits" usually only refers to packmates, who are VERY close friends. Though, there are a few exceptions, like Shelly. I could be wrong, though.

An inverted perpendicular split is difficult at best. On the Balance Beam.... Damn! I'll give it to her! Nadia Comaneci can lick the underside of my balls for the 10's I'm taking from her and giving to Natalie!

WOW! Amazing stuff, Nori! ^_____^ Carrie's expression is both hilarious and adorable.

And we also get to see the infamous Mr. Surftide! Haha, loving the retro 80s shades. X3
I wonder... who would be your first pick to voice him?

...I can't really say anything that hasn't been said already. The way Natalie's butt seems to be escaping from the leotard, all the little sparkles in her outfit, her thick, beautifully shaped legs and those eyes...it's almost hypnotic. Carrie's little cameo in the background is definitely hilarious, but it's damn clear who the focus of this piece is...

Man I wish I was better in SAI.... I wish I was better in ANY canvas program.  I always have to use the old pencil and paper first THEN digitize it ._.;

edit: Oh yeah! The drawing! I love the point of view given.  Catches all the important stuff XP

W- Wha? He's the gym teacher. All she had to do was ask.
