fish poetry by vinegar fish poetry by vinegar
i thought it's been too long since i've submitted something here.. this time a piece in a more cartoonish manner than my other latest pieces.. i still love both styles (stylised and more realistic) and both in my work and in my personal illustrations i experiment a lot with them..

anyway, this is NOT a strictly personal piece, it's a piece for .PSD Photoshop magazine for an article and tutorial about Painter X, so I'd really appreciate if you'll refraing from using it or I'll be forced to put those awful, big watermarks.

my second job for .PSD Magazine, polish edition, done (obviously) all in Painter X.

i have to say i like the colors here, so vivid. btw, the repetetive fishes are part of the tutorial matters, so spare me the comments about it, please ;)

hope you'll like it :)

close up's can be seen here: [link]

p.s. oh how i love DA for introducing Illustration category finally!! :heart:

The eyes of the character are mesmerizing as are the colors. I fell in love with fish poetry by ~vinegar and I bet you will too ! ( Featured by nighty )

this is cool and i like the colors, although I find the bold black outlines distracting from the rest of the composition

well, the whole picture was about bold black outlines, I wanted to have them there so, sorry, they stay. It's what make the picture look good to me. And many other people :]

The mix of cartooniness and realism is interesting. I love the bottom part of the girl's dress and her facial expression. My favorite part of this piece though, as a writer, I must say...is the title :)

I really like the way you used the really thick bold lines around the images. Its one of those things that I hold in my eye as very attractive and attention gettting. Good job I really enjoy it. :D
