Finished in 2005, Feburary.
Started for the purpose of learning how I paint things affected by a paticular color(ambient orange in this case), this only took two weeks to finish, a dramatically fast record for a guy who usually needs one month for even VGA size pic. Furthermore, though I was always getting cold feet to start painting background scene(because...I don't like it
), this time it really went smoothly, so smooth that I did paint the sky and the water serface drinking so much beer!!
When I posted this picture to a Japanese CG-mailing list, a high skilled guy pointed out that the lines of shoulder looks strange. I agree. When I was working on this part I didn't recognize, but then being pointed out I thought, "Shoo...he's right." Was I disappointed? No, because the point of this pic is not the shoulder, but the fact that I no longer feel fear to paint background scenes!!
