Animes, Photography and everything in between… Pfft..

Arancia Complete!

Crash course last night and woke up in the wee hours today and completed this..
I love it!

Being too excited, I’ve already submitted this to Arancia but anything I should have improved on?

Update: Woot! It’s Up! Arancia Project.

    Nice gradients and vectoring! I love the oranges in the bg as well.Quick questions: What program are you using and are you shaping out the lines?

    @SnarkYeah.. The hair was hard. I tried doing it again but just wasn't any good. I wonder if the proper way is to actually do thread at a time.@YiThanks Yi.. It was done with Adobe Fireworks. Not much of a photoshop guy. Fireworks all the way.. :pErm.. I don't really know what shaping means but I traced it from another doujin work. Then modified the vector points to suit Arancia.

    Is Fireworks better to work with? I've never tried it.By shaping, I just meant that if you're tracing out the lines as well. But I see how you're doing it now. Good job btw.

    Well.. I believe that Photoshop has more features. But I also believe that the limit is not the software but the ability of the artist. That's why I didn't switch to Photoshop. But if you are starting fresh, I'd say go Photoshop. So much more tutorials around the web.Macromedia Fireworks was the first editing software I tried. And it kind of got stuck on me. I did try Photoshop but the rich features overwhelmed me. Lol!Try checking out It's not a guide or something. But the progress image depth-san put up there was very informative. A picture does speak a thousand words in his/her case.

    OOps.. forgot to mention. My impressions of Photoshop and Fireworks are based on the version few years back. I haven't had the chance to try out the new Photoshop. So it might have improved or something. Just to let you know.. :pAnd Thanks for the kind words!
