Flying with Rising Sun by Iris-Zeible Flying with Rising Sun by Iris-Zeible
:iconsdl1plz::iconsdl2plz::iconsdl3plz:
This is Round one submission for Miss SDL 2009.

The theme for this round is "Fantasy".
I think I did not do better than my audition, so I wasn't really happy with this. Well, atleast I made it. And it look kinda nice on thumbnails too lol. :'<

This piece is a small tribude for ~dire-musaera. XD
I always wanted to draw Taichou Irisu riding on dire dragon- but I afraid that will look too similar with a certain animation... So I just made them fly together.

I wanted a afternoon bright sky, but isawsomeonealreadydoneabrightskythingforthisround so BLAAAH I CHANGE TO MORNING SUN YOU HAPPY NOW TT 3TT (LOL just kidding, no offense.)

I really love to paint Sky and clouds. When I was stuck painting the sky I really want =Serain to sit beside me and teach me how to do it right- ; ^ ; fuuuhuhuhuhu-




Anyway, thanks for looking. I hope I can do better next round ; 3 ; If I ever have a next round, that is.

I think the crisper coloring of the clouds in the lower-right area works better with your smooth cell-shading in the foreground rather than the more blended colored clouds. :) Either way it's quite an attractive piece.

Thank you so much for the suggestion! Yeah, the way I colored it make it seems like it's blured out like other clouds at the background. ^^;

Uh, I did something very similar to this a couple of years ago. I suspect you might have taken the idea... the subject matter is far too similar: [link]

They are similar, but not every piece of art is going to be completely different. You've probably seen a million artworks with the same poses, yet different concepts or themes to the picture. I can assure you Iris-from what I've seen- is not an idea stealer. Your artwork and Iris' are both very good in my opinion, whether they are similar or different and they both come from their own artist's perspective. :)

i can se where you're coming from with that, knowing iris though i can atleast vouch that the strawberries is just a character theme thing rather than a giant concept steal.

Nevertheless, it IS a kid riding on a fish like thing in the sky holding a strawberry on a stick with a string. I'm calling a cautious foul, though I'd like to hear from Iris about it before I take any actions. It is possible it is a big coincidence, though the whole thing seems rather fishy (pardon the pun).

And also- My original idea is flying bunny monster instead of flying fish. But in the end I kept failing to draw the bunny- so I changed it to a fish, which is a lot easier to draw. u_u;;


I should've insist on keeping it as the flying bunny monster.

You may not believe me, but the idea of fish having wings (someone think I steal their fish with wings idea too )+ fishing with strawberries are totally my own idea at first. I took a lot of sky and bird eye view perspective photos as reference, and I swear I never seen that picture you linked.

Like Dire mentioned, strawberry is the theme for this character, so I tried to apply strawberry everywhere for most of her drawings.
If people would like to know how did I thoght of the idea of flying fish- I would say- "flying fish does exist anyway! It's not that hard to make them to make them fly in the clouds instead of ocean."

I hope that explain for you. I assure you-Iris will never copy idea like this, for herself knowing how daaaaaamn annoying it is to get your own idea stole by someone.

Is ok. Sounds like a reasonable explanation. I just wanted to make sure nothing 'fishy' was going on >.>;

Do not worry nom'm angry or criticandote, otherwise we would not have added this picture to Favs ^^... I like the concept ... and I think that you and my sister are good artists ... that's why I remembered it when I saw your picture ... I entered the memory ... is that she no longer lives with me now; _;.

Awesome =D Love the way the fish gets motivated xD just it seems more like a sunset than a sun rise o.o im not really an expert when it comes to that but i think the effect would have been better if it wouldnt be so dark around the outlines of the painting,,, but still awesome =] n_n

Heh! I found it hard to different a sunset and a sunrise too. The different might be the air- the morning is much colder. XD


Thank you for the suggestion too!

i think the coloring and line work is nice but i dont like her position on the fish... it looks like she is sliding off side of fish rather than riding it. If she were riding it i think her far leg would be on other side out of view.
other than that looks great!
good luck! (=
