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;

Great sense of atmosphere. You really nailed the whole rolling waves thing. Waves are hard to pull off. Only thing that really bothers me is the girl on the right. It seems like you're trying to make her balance, but it looks pretty awkward. I think it's because her arms are stiff/ wrists are locked. When you're balancing, it should be loose -- more like floating. Then again, not sure what you're aiming for. If she's confident, and putting on an act, then I can see why you would go the stiff, posed hand. But I think, above all -- if you pushed her expression, it would sell the piece. Right now she's got a neutral, blank sort of look... as opposed to maybe like, surprise, fear, or clumsiness. But something! You need something. Just my two cents. Otherwise, I like it alot.

mmn. Interesting. I do want to go back to this piece based on the little feedback I've received. I'll see what I can do about what you're saying. I didn't really re-work the sketches this was based from, but I probably should have done a little.

Thanks for the input! And I'm glad you like the waves... that shit's hard to paint.

Nice piece, but watch out for the tangent created by the girl in the foreground with the top of the illustration. Don't be afraid to bring the girls closer together so they overlap a bit, that will help create great sense of depth. I might like to see a smoother gradation of the sea foam out into the ocean, particularly between the two figures, but I don't it to lose any atmospheric perspective.

Also, while I like the defused overcast lighting, you may find the composition to be more visually interesting with a little deeper shadows on the girls to help reinforce the atmospheric perspective.

I hope they don't fall.

But seriously I do like the light source. It's very soft but subtle on them. You can tell it's a murky day by it.

I based it on some of the rocky beaches I've been to here in Cali... admittedly, I tried to pump it up a little more for dramatic reasons. The thing I'm worried about for them is how cold they are. Maybe it's just warm and humid?
