Speedpainting - Sakura by VanchaMarl
Speedpainting - Sakura
Speedpainting exchange for :iconYusagi: of Sakura from an AU. I haven't really red Naruto before, or know too much about it other than an image here or there, so I hope I got enough of the details correct.

Testing out harder light backlighting as well, hope you like it!

Download for details.
Murloc Hunter by VanchaMarl
Murloc Hunter
Sure, it's a formidable weapon meant for war, but who wouldn't use it to catch pesky Murlocs in their free time?

I had meant to start working on this much sooner, but had to work on commissions for groceries first and lost track of the time. Next thing I know, I have only two days left before the contest ends. This is also the first full illustration that I've ever completed. It sure was an adventure, and I've learned a few things while working on the technique of painting.
Overall, I'm left with a very sore hand, sleep deprived from the last 24 hours of painting on and off, and kind of hungry. I really forced myself to detail as much as I could without overcrowding this piece, and personally I'm happy with how it's turned out. That, and I can finally close photoshop, this file was lagging out my computer.

Original Size: 5000x6470px
Time Taken: Around 15 hours
Medium: Photoshop CC 2014
Hours of sleep lost: 8 hours

Another egg adoptable finished for this set:…

The scales slightly killed my hand, but overall I'm happy with how this one turned out! Download for the full view if you'd like~
Arctic Egg Adoptable by VanchaMarl
Arctic Egg Adoptable
I feel bad for not posting the eggs up when they're available, but they usually sell out within an hour or so of posting on FA so there's not much of an opportunity to. If anyone is interested, it'd probably be best to keep an eye out on FA since I'm slightly more active there now than on DA. ^^
This character comes from this batch of eggs:…

And yes, dragons are incredibly satisfying to draw/paint. :'D

This dragon belongs to eisenheim on FA!
Gaiaonline: Sennja by VanchaMarl
Gaiaonline: Sennja
I've been doing an auction or two on Gaia in order to practice single-character illustrations that are also available for commission, so I actually have examples when I post up information. It's really enjoyable to paint characters that are not my own, and I'd like to be able to do more of it in the future.

Commissions like this will be $45 per character until Thanksgiving. With or without a simple background.

As a side note, I need to get better at posting on Deviantart, I'm just finding it harder and harder to remain active here. I usually can be found on Tumblr or Furaffinity more often than here, and can link to those sites if anyone is interested.

VanchaMarl Featured By Owner Feb 21, 2014  Student Digital Artist
I've had both school, work, and other obligations, so the amount of free time I currently have is slightly limited. ;w;
How have you been? It's been a little while.
orribu Featured By Owner Feb 23, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
holy fuck, I'm sorry girl. I hope that's all going well for you. ;w;

I'm ok, just dealing with a lot of chaos right now and trying to find myself in this tidal wave of shit. :'D

so how awful is it? XD
VanchaMarl Featured By Owner Jan 30, 2014  Student Digital Artist
Huzzah, the power of the internet!

I don't think I'd use awful to describe it, not at all. I am very jealous of your pixel skills, and I love your designs! :'D
Darn you for not showing me your DA sooner! :shakefish:
Bloody-Scarlett Featured By Owner Jan 30, 2014
