Under The Overpass by yuumei Under The Overpass by yuumei

Glistening street lights
Under the overpass
Alone to the world 
A special moment
Shared with you 

Here's a video tutorial of how it's done :D

I did a paintover of a photo my bf and I took while traveling in Japan. Luckily, I actually remembered to record my work process this time so I'll be making a video tutorial soon of how I did this. Some of you have already seen the tutorials of 3D background paintover, this one is similar but working from a photo base instead of 3D model :)

Ever since I hurt my hand from drawing too much, I've been looking into new and innovative ways to express my art while conserving my hand use. Finding shortcuts has been a very fun challenge and I'm exited to share the results with everyone. I think it'll be a useful time saving technique regardless of hand pain or not :)

I wonder if this possible as animation?
I know there are some bruish filters but they prolly aren't realistic enough...
Time to look for myself!

Was the photo you used for the picture taken in Shibuya? I'm wondering because the place looks very familiar to me, and I studied in Shibuya for a year when I lived in Japan :).

This is just brilliant :)
SunnyMindBath Featured By Owner Apr 8, 2017
I absolutely love the way you used the crosshatching to draw focus in and out of certain areas while maintaining fluidity with the color. The couple shows so much emotion and soulful expression without needing an abundance of detail about them. Man, the eye is drawn so seamlessly through the scene and out into the distance on every side. Great detail. Great mood. Wonderful use of colors and shading. Dang. Brilliant.

Awww. So sweet! Such a tender scene!
Flarona Featured By Owner Jan 14, 2017
This makes me want to draw some rainy scenery!! It's so pretty! I only need to make 1) glistering ground 2) oevertly shining lights if there are some 3) some straight lines falling from the sky that resemble raindrops and 3) some shorter raindrops bouncing from the ground, right?
I don't think I've ever even tried rain before, so it'd be a challenge! Only if I had a good painting program on this laptop...
