Shower's Gone by getty Shower's Gone by getty
The sudden shower is now gone, and the clear, delightful sunshine blesses you...

Japan is not a tropical country. ( Certainly not! :XD: ) Yet we sometimes have a sudden shower in summer. It's just short, and quickly gone in several minutes, after soaking up everything from birds and grasses to buildings and our clothes. Then, the sun appears from behind clouds, giving crystal shines to all drips and beads the shower left behind. It just makes me smile.

I've been trying to change things around me. Software, environment, drawing scheme and so, to get some more steps forward. Some seems to have failed, some looks to be effective, but I don't really know if I got improved from them. At my age it's quite hard to get a drastic change, but, well, time will tell.

To those who'd ask how I did it: there's no how. Everything's drawn by hand. Though I use function-rich Photoshop CS3, tools I mainly use are brushes and erasers, so there's no secret tool.

Everything from sketches and lineart through painting and effects done on PhotoshopCS3 + Intuos3.

Hope you like it. :)

Shower's Gone by *getty is a beautiful picture that when I saw it I fell in love with it! The background is beautifully portrayed and I love how the light shines down on the character. *getty did a fantastic job on capturing the reflections in the water and the over shading and coloring is superb! This is a must see! ( Featured by Damaged927 )

The light and raindrops are truly amazing on this drawing. I'm working with your tutorials and they seem so easy, yet I can't believe how you get THIS in the end :-)

This will give me a sense of new hope as the sunlight beams depict it, sort of 'sunshine after the rain' thing. :happycry:
