Commission Work: Rider Simon and Nia by OverlordJC Commission Work: Rider Simon and Nia by OverlordJC
Rider Simon & Nia


If something feels a little familiar about this piece, then you're on the right track. Yes, this is a continuation to :iconceroxide: 's original Gunner Yoko commission - quite literally, in fact. This picture links perfectly to the right side of the "Gunner Yoko" picture I have up in my gallery right now. :thumb308199343:

As always, I love color and I love stuff blowing up, so going back to get this commission done was an enjoyable experience. There's now only one piece left to complete the series.



I am 100% committed to getting every last one of these commissions done, so you can bet this isn't the last one you'll see going up.

Thanks for viewing as always :)

This really looks spectacular once you put the two of them together and I cannot wait to see the 3rd piece! You really have nailed the way they use color in the show and then some, everything is so bright and vibrant without being too busy or making you go "Owww my eyes!" Great job!

Yeah, I really do want to try more of these panorama type pictures. The third piece will be up sooner or later, and then I will finally post it all as one piece!

Thank you very much for the kind words (I'm not into retina burning :'D so I'm glad it's not overkill)

whats the best way to create smoke like that? I could never draw it correctly
Reply
:iconoverlordjc:
OverlordJC Featured By Owner Apr 17, 2015  Professional Filmographer
Well, you can start with the darkest color of the smoke, right? Then layer on the lighter colors to build up volume and depth.

The best way to practice it would be to have a look at some real smoke and explosions, then do a few warm ups where you pick a few colors
and try to capture the same values you see in your reference in your picture.

Hope this helps you make some awesome some and explosions :)
