Tempest in the desert by Darkashter Tempest in the desert by Darkashter
Arttrade with =Searii
Took me quite the while, have made some serious changes in between, at first i wanted hher in a jungle, but my plants vomited on the image, so i deleted them:3

Please tell me what you think!
(and how to make this available for critiques... cant seem to find that option

Time: +1 15 hrs
Software: PS CS5

EDIT 26-11-12
I added reflectionish things to the water, and i changed the water color to something more natural. also i changed the atmosphere and removed the superweird rock behind all. it's way better now:3

EDIT 6 - 12 - 12
I furred her up^^ the shading and texturing is now better:3

Also i'd love to have this corrected by :iconimprovement-club:!!

I love the whole concept and the way it's colored but i think you should have tried some more light in the water. Also the way the cat is looking at the person outside the painting is a bit weird, as in, he looks like he wants to almost eat ya.
All in all i do love it, the background, the rocks, the water and all.

Hello there
Here's a comment from :iconimprovement-club:
First the good things about this drawing:
:bulletgreen: Whew.. what a nice cat! really like the colors and background.
:bulletgreen: Don't know if the background's a picture or also drawn, but you sure know how to use Photoshop! Well done!

Things you could improve:
:bulletred: The outerlines of the cat are very smooth, maybe a little too smooth. Maybe it was better to give the cat more fuzziness. Because now it looks a bit like a cat who is really well painted, instead of a cat with just a beautiful coat. Again, the stripe pattern is great, but it seems to hide the hair effect underneath it. Try to use the hairy effect also in the stripes.
:bulletred: Shading with an Airbrush effect is also quite dangerous to do when you want your creature to look hairy. Airbrush is just too smooth. It's better to use another brush so the hairy effect won't become invisible. It's also a good idea to shade in the same direction as the hair goes.

But i really like this drawing, you did a pretty good job!
hope this will help you out! ^_^
Thanks for posting your drawing :happybounce:

Well, if I am right there are some bristle brushes standard in Photoshop CS5.
For fur I normally use the white wide brush in the Standard Brush tool.
To blend the hair nicely you can select a secondary pencil, and choose another brush to combine two brushes.

Oh wacht, je bent Nederlands toch? xD Ik zie het nu pas haha
misschien kan ik het nu beter uitleggen.
Ik heb de Nederlandse versie van Photoshop CS5
Je hebt een materialen lijst (meestal) aan de linker kant van je scherm, hierin kun je de penseel kiezen de gum etc etc. Klik op het penseel icoon en dan kun je links boven zien wat voor brush je op dat moment gebruikt.
Selecteer de Ronde witte waaier-achtige brush voor een haar effect.
De Secundaire brush kun je kiezen door op het icoontje Penseel rechts in het scherm te drukken. Het icoontje is een bakje met verschillende penselen erin. Nouja, het kan zijn dat jou tools anders geplaatst zijn als bij de mijne. Ik hoop dat je er een beetje mee overweg kan :')

Lol, waarom had ik al zo'n gevoel... in het engels had je t over een 2e brush om het in te blenden, welke is dat dan?

Je kan 2 brushes met elkaar combineren, dankzij de secundaire penseel
Als je als eerste brush een borstel achtige kiest voor het haar effect en bij de secundaire brush gaat voor een vagere 'airbrush-achtige brush' (lol) Dan lopen de penseelstreken die je aanzet veel makkelijker in elkaar over (blend mooi samen, met andere woorden) Het gaat voornamelijk goed als je een tablet hebt en bovenaan aangeeft dat de tablet moet reageren op druksterkte in Photoshop: Hoe harder je met de pen op je tablet drukt, hoe sterker de dekking in Photoshop. Er is niet een speciale brush om te blenden, je kan wel een soort gelijke maken door deze stappen te volgen.

Ik kan het je niet echt beter uitleggen, sorry xD
