Nation of Sol - Urchin down by ukitakumuki Nation of Sol - Urchin down by ukitakumuki
5-6 hours on PScs , airbrush tool

a personal project of sorts!

This mountain range has a high altitude lake, to which the Black Shell tribe calls home.

The Onyxa clan's damned dam has screwed up the lives of the peaceful Black Shell tribe long enough.

A marine Black Shell force launches an assault from the dam break at low tide with the aid of an unusual ally -a wyvern(it was found crapping near a crab den, and caught off guard. It promised to be tame as long as the Shells didn't kill it during its major shit. Its embarassing, really.)

Their objective; a fishing shrine at the base of the dam fortress. Desecrate it, and the slutty sea goddess will not supply their food for the coming winter months. A perfect plan, to turn the tide.

Unfortunately, Smelly Urchin, a captain of the Black Shells has just run out of luck, and takes 2 arrows in the spine.[this leads to the invention of the "rolling-chair".] Barracuda, the assault commander swears vengeance. A 'mantar' dices up some opposition in the meantime, and the Giant Arantian Crab crew is happy with the days frags.

Another day, another battle, in the nation of the Sun.

This is still my favorite of your works. Its lack of precise details allows the viewer to sink into this dreamlike world

... speechless.
You're a deity. Your works are amazing! I can't stop looking at them.
Your technique is very interesting... it kinda reminds me of oil paintings. I wonder what kind of graphic tablet you use and... specially how many brushes do you use for your works. I hardly believe you use the preset brushes from PS... again you're awesome!

ukitakumuki Featured By Owner May 14, 2010  Professional Digital Artist
Most artists paint with normal 'no frills' brushes. Simply because at some point you're going to have to get detail down in the most predictable and practical way, and you're not going to get that with some tricked out custom brush that random stamps patterns for you.

Check out [link] He's a great example of using the basic stuff, then once happy with the foundation you then 'detail up' to your hearts content knowing the base is well defined and readable.

Hope that helps somewhat!

Great battle scene! My only complaint is the dragon's color; the blue makes him stand out too much next to the warm colors around him.

IronRosePetal Featured By Owner Apr 7, 2007
do you usually know what you're going to create when you open up a canvas on your program? Or do you have it planned out?
ukitakumuki Featured By Owner Apr 7, 2007  Professional Digital Artist
very much, yes.. at least 80% of the final product.. alot of other considerations such as colour and mood resetting come halfway, its the nature of most individuals spirits to want to see if they can push it that extra 20%.

alot of the time, however, what you started of with.. you end up reconfiguring beyond recognition, but thats a rarity if you do your planning well! esp for professional work.
