012 - A Place to Relax by telophase 012 - A Place to Relax by telophase
The first of the two people who hit the 2345 kiriban requested a pic of Jiraiya and Tsunade from Naruto for someone else. I am under the impression that there is an element of secrecy involved here, so I'm not yet saying who until I know they've got it. (Now watch there be no secrecy at all and I'm just being silly.) Title from ~Kugen's translated list o'topics to draw, as always.

Anyway, this was *supposed* to be a picture of two old friends kicking back and having a drink together, but then Jiraiya somehow got that grin and then he started singing "I'm gonna get some! I'm gonna get some!" and I completely lost control of it after that. (Tsunade: "Only in your dreams!") I guess you really can't keep a good ero-sennin down. Same with the coloring -- this was supposed to be an exercise in *simple* coloring and I managed to make it complex. XD I swear, the *next* picture I do will be simply colored!

The original is about 14 x 12" so many details are lost in this version. If you want, take a look at a detail here. That *also* loses a bit due to the jpg compression, but there's not much you can do about that except save it as a .png and I didn't do that, so tough.

There are probably many errors that can be fixed and I'm sure you guys will spot them all and let me know. I might even go and fix them :) And for anyone who doesn't know the characters, Tsunade's boobs are supposed to be like that. I assume her wandering around doing ninja stuff without adequate support garments is a special ninja Boobage no Jutsu.

Time: er, the better part of three days. One day to sketch and ink, two to color. I'm not sure of the total number of hours, because I tend to work a bit, then go do something, then come back. Probably 15 or so solid hours of work.

Done almost completely in Painter 7.0. Inks can be found here.

[ edit ] Sorry for popping this up in your watch lists again. I completed a step-by-step tutorial of what I did to make this painting. It's a bit slight in the actual shading methods, but I figure those deserve their own tutorials and I will one day make them . :D Until then, you'll just have to be satisfied with this.

Hey, so I was just surfing around, looking for Tsunade pictures, and I found this one and thought, "Gee, that looks so familiar!!"

Someone stole your pic and then pasted on anime-Tsunade and Jiraiya's heads.

I read through a tutorial on this peice you made apparently. One of the problems you had was you didn't make the background first... why not use layers?
Reply
:icontelophase:
telophase Featured By Owner Sep 14, 2007  Hobbyist Digital Artist
OH, one more thing: the reason you tend to want to make the background first, at least sketchily, is so you can work on it at the same time as you work on the rest of the picture. When you work on separate sections without going back and forth, you tend to over-work some sections and under-work others, so they don't match up. Working on them at the same time (and often on the same layer) also allows you to work the background and foreground into each other - when you're using a painterly style, outlines shouldn't be sharp, but should fade gracefully into the background, and the colors should reflect and sometimes bleed into each other. It's ahrd to do that if you do the entire forground first, then work on the background.

he'd need more sake than that to take her down... then when she woke up he'd be dead... I love this pi, and jiraiya would so try it. the coloring is really good, and the anatomy works well. jiraiya's hand looks a little too stiff, though...
