Stormy Times - May 2005 by Neomae Stormy Times - May 2005 by Neomae
This is an older pic. I worked on it in the time from August 2004 to November 2004. It was my very first picture for a calendar that was printed and sold. But not only because of that it is something special for me. I think this is the only picture in which I managed to show Brooklyn exactly the way I see him - not only his appearance but his soul.

I drew the sketch in a time in which I had to deal with the most terrible art block that I ever had until then. It was one of the rare good drawings I made in that time. Originally I wanted to use another scene for May 2005 but this sketch expressed much more in my oppinion.

I know there are some anatmical mistakes in it but I still love it very much because of its atmosphere.

working time: about 10 hours
made with: pencils, inking pens, Photoshop 7.0

Brooklyn © Disney

You can find the calendar's DA gallery here:

Pardon me for asking, but is he naked in this pic? I don't know why but it looks like he is.

Aw, Brooklyn! I loved him! He was always my favorite of the clan. I still get mad when I see Angela pick Broadway! Grr. But I love this!

Thank you :) I think I could have created a better lightning-light effect on Brooklyn but on the other hand he wouldn't be seen that good (especially his eyes, which I really love^^), if I did. I likeit the way it is :)

Wow, you're kinda like a perfectionist huh? :D
The lighting on him's great! He's almost becoming a silhouette - which makes the pic more mysterious. ^___^

I don't think I'm a perfectionist but I want to improve. For me this means to try to get my pics as natural and realistic (and correct) as possible. But sometimes a drawer has too chose between correctness and the atmosphere/effect. For me the atmosphere is more important then.

I agree...like impressionist paintings, it's all about atmosphere - which makes people so easily lose themselves in them. :aww:

No need to apologize. I'm very glad that you take the time to comment my pics. I haven't commented the pics of others for a long time as I was so busy. But now that I hide my own deviations I think I'll find the time to comment other art more - as it should be. BTW: I looked at your pictures, I just didn't comment them until now. I'm very sorry!

I tried to make some small lightning reflections (see the small highlights on Brooklyn) but I guess they are not enough. I could have done much more! Thank you for telling me :)

^^; auf dem ersten blick isses auch nich so schlimm, sieht man kaum ;)
Wenn du das bild aber so aufgebaut hättest, als wenn wirklich gerade ein blitz eingeschlagen hätte, wäre brook wohl eher ganz schwarz gewesen (dann hättest du den effekt mit den leuchtenden augen machen können, hätte vielleicht auch ganz gut ausgesehen ^^).
Es gefällt mir trotzalledem ^^ :hug: es ist sehr schön!!!

Ich nehm dir den Tipp auch nicht übel. Im Gegensatz, ich freu mich drüber! :) Du hast Recht, ich hab viel über den Effekt nachgedacht. Man hätte wirklich einiges mehr rausholen können! Ich wär allein sicher nicht drauf gekommen. vielen Dank! :hug:

did you do the lightning by yourself or did you use a Photoshop effect?
Reply
:iconneomae:
Neomae Featured By Owner Jun 17, 2005  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I colored the pic completely in photoshop. To achieve the lightning effect I worked with the layer settings. I had two layers for the lightning itself - one set to "soft light" and one set to "hard light" (I dunno if these are the right English expressions as I have a German version of photoshop^^). I put the "soft light"-layer under the "hard light"-layer and drew a line which was a little bigger than the lightning itsself on it (color: almost white yellow). I used a big, very soft brush for it so I got very smooth lines. Then I worked on the shiny light layer and drew a line (thinner than the line on the "soft light"-layer) with a small, soft brush - the lightning (color: white). Then I made some highlights on the clouds and the blue background were the lightning was and that's all.

Did you understand? If you want to I can send you a little tutorial in the next mail :)
