On the Rocks by ryusuke On the Rocks by ryusuke
.:EDIT:. I've Re-Worked this image and posted it to my new account. :iconwruzicka: Please check out the newer version.

I haven't really drawn anything in about two months, or rather, ever since I finished working on that short samurai animation with my friends. I was too burnt out from working on G-Force to really put any effort into drawing.
So around the time that the project was coming to a close I started forcing myself to sketch some things, and of course I started drawing some characters of mine in bikinis and other revealing outfits. This was created by taking two separate sketches and compositing them together in Photoshop, tweaking the poses to work a little better. I decided early on I wanted an overcast sky and some nice rocks, so I took my rough sketch into Painter and found some reference photos on Google to paint the water and rocks. Then I inked the characters in Manga Studio. Finished painting in Painter and then did final lighting and tweaks in Photoshop.

I may want to go back to this though and tighten up details on the rocks and the ocean, but for now I'm pretty satisfied with this one for now. I even uploaded it in Wallpaper size (based on my screen resolution)

Thanks a lot. I know it makes no sense to be at the beach on a day like that... and they're really asking to get washed away by the ocean, or at least get their heads backed in by the rocks. o.o;

"backed in the by the rocks?" What was I drinking that night? Thanks for realizing what I meant and not calling out my typo. -_-;

thank you! I really like this one, and I have wanted to go back and tighten it up a little based on the critiques I got. But this is still a piece I'm proud of today. Glad you like it!
