Come Sail Away - Revisited by Robo-Shark Come Sail Away - Revisited by Robo-Shark
Please full-view ^^;

I wanted to redo an old piece of mine, and so I decided to give Come Sail Away a try. The drawing is less than 2 years old, but you can see improvement in certain areas, like the anatomy (still off, I know - large torso and arms were an attempt at perspective and foreshortening XD). My style's changed and all too, and of course, CJ's grown a little bit in ways.

Decided I'd CG something again. If I had patience, I think I'd be pretty good at computer coloring. However, I don't, so you get something thrown together in a couple hours. :B

Supposed to be Northern Lights...ish....

Come sail away, come sail away
Come sail away with me ~

You did an excellent job with this... it's fun sometimes to redo pictures!! I like how everything just looks so bright, it look mystical, and like you said, Northern lights-ish :)

I can definately see improvements, I really like this. Both pieces look really good, I like it both traditionally and digitally. Yay! :heart:

First off, I have to congratulate you on the improvements in your artwork. Not that this version of the pic is awful or anything, but I say it's nice to improve anyway, yanno? *hides sketches from middle school* Secondly, I love the pose. It's so happy looking and free-flowing. Her expression matches perfectly with it. And as for the fact she's mid-air even though she can't fly? ...I'll just pretend she's on a trampoline or something. xD

This kinda reminds me of the Pines of Rome short in Fantasia 2000. You know, the one with the whales? With that feeling that you're soaring into the sky with the characters...

I like that feeling. :)

I really like this, especially the northern lights. And the changes in CJ are very apparent here as well, and what changes they are! Definetly for the better, if you ask me. And I love her expression, she seems very peaceful and uplifted. ^^

kewl :) The only error I noticed is that her knees/thighs seem a little too pointy, it's a little hard to tell from the perspective but they may be a little on the short side as well. I like the new expression, btw, better than the old one IMO, and the coloring looks far better.

Wow, this really in an improvement. The setting is beautiful, and CJ's pose just speaks of such joyful elation and peace with her fantastical environment. You really can't help but smile seeing her like this. She looks utterly glorious. The bg almost makes me think that it's representational, like the scene is taking place in her imagination or in a dream.

The final chorus of the song Come Sail Away really fits with this wonderfully, when the song builds up to its' final crecendo. :nod:

Never seen the Northern Lights in real life, only in photos and on TV....I'd love to see them someday. (I'd have to travel hundreds of miles to do so XD)

No reason, just a relaxing pose, and since I was redoing an old piece, I did the same sort of pose. CJ actually can't fly, so it really makes no sense, but it was fun to draw. I make my own characters out-of-character. o.O
