Blind Red by Tajii-chan Blind Red by Tajii-chan
True story: Started working on this for *tincek-marincek's coloring contest when I realized that it wouldn't be accepted midway through because the printer cropped it. Two days later I continued to work on it without much stamina when halfway through I developed some kind of stress in my eye which has caused it to go all red and hurt D; I thought of the theme of this drawing.. and just couldn't quite bring myself to put down my colors after reflecting on this :)

My eye was killing me midway through this so the end result is less than desirable. In fact, so much so that I'm considering just coloring in another lineart all together. Damn, it's depressing T__T;

Aww!! I hope your eye gets better!! That SUUUUUUX so much. I had an eye infection once, and I hated it. Couldn't see out of it for a while.
BTW, I love the pic! Beautiful like always! ^^
Kinda funny how a red eye turned into a blindfold. :XD:
Oh well!! Inspiration is inspiration!

Really like how you can control the gradient in the color. It must be really hard... :nod:

The stripes were already in the design to begin with, but the colors were all my making :D That having been said, the lineart itself is really beautiful so I had lots of fun coloring it :la:

I had something like that happen to me with a sculpture! I was doing a birthday gift for a friend, who's party was later that day...
I had planned to do this really cute figurine of one of her favorite characters, but of course I got a giant headache, and slept through half the day.

I ended up giving her a really simple patchwork teddy-bear thing.

I hate it when printers do that! >.< Just destroys any enthusiasm!

Anyways, the only unusual thing I noticed was the blue on the crooked finger & that the bottom black line should be raised a bit more to cover the remaining white (or color it-whichever's easier) but everything else is perfect (>.> so you better enter this or else).

But make sure to rest, close your eyes , stay away from screens...(sometimes I place a wet rag over my face then eat watermelon since it's supposedly good for eyesight-helps relieve my pains but I doubt it'll work for anyone else).

Yes, it was quite disheartening .___.;;

Oh my, I can't believe I didn't notice that! Talk about blind to details :XD:

I don't think I can enter it because it's been cropped though.. D; So I'll probably just make another entry with another lineart :heart:

A warm wet rag..? And yes, I'll try my best to do just that. Thank you :)

But seriously, try~ OAO (your welcome)

This is beautiful, really :la:
The color blend is wonderful. I love how you colored the skin, looks very good C:
Before printing something, always check the ''print limits'' (I don't know how it's called in English but I guess it is XD) You will be able to see if the printer will crop the drawing or not. I don't know if you have this option in every program, but I know Illustrator has it. (I actually learned that in my Adobe Illustrator classes :'D)

Anyway, I hope your eyes are not hurting anymore :hug:

The skin was my favorite part ;) Especially on the guy, it just seemed to work out pretty well :o

Actually, I know what you're talking about. I really think it's my fault though.. that I didn't notice the crop because the characters were fully showing D; Next time I'll know to look more closely ouo;

My eye's still sore but I hope that it heals soon..

Also, I have a feeling the same thing happened to my eye, so just, try not too put too much stress on it, and it should be better in no time. ; u ; b

My pleasure^---^<3 And I couldn't even imagine doing digital work, I can barely do traditional.... I admire them too, but I respect much more traditional art because, well, I'm not quite sure actually. There's something in it, something unique and fragile.... I don't know, I just love traditional more :---) I still like digital, but it's not my thing '____'

My pleasure^---^ (And sorry for babbling....)
