PLEASE FULL VIEW!! ; ;

Whoo, my first finished picture for 15 months!

It only took me 70+ layers and 100+ hours, so you better like it! e___e;

Tools: Photoshop 7.0, my mouse which doesn't listen to me, and a LOT of patience. XDDDD

Well now, it's 4.18 am and I have to be up early~

Love you all!:heart:

Edit: tweaked the colours a little.
Edit 2: made it darker, since it looked okay on my computer but too bright and undefined on most others XD

Wow!

I like your lineless color style. It works really well. Even without lines, your edges are defined quite sharply just with contrast. I love how her face in particular turned out. C:

No doubt the coloring and shading are two of the biggest strengths of this drawing, as I can see you put a lot of detail and effort into this, so a big plus there. She looks cute and innocent from her pose and expression. Specificially, I love how the eyes and hair came out, along with her outfit. The background goes along nicely too.

Yeeeessss~ YOU FINISHED IT! I'm so glad. :]
And it turned out great, it was so worth all the effort I know you put into it.
The shading is brilliant, especially on the skin and face... and the eyes are amazing. NO idea how you do this stuff, or indeed have the patience to do this stuff but it really pays off. Random, but how you coloured the hair reminds me of something but I can't think what... in a good way, that is. XD I also like what you did with the background in the end, the colours are perfect and I think despite being simple finishes off the picture very well, anything more would be distracting.

My ONLY criticism isn't really criticism, just a suggestion. The textures you added work great but maybe a little flat in some places. I don't know, maybe editing the textures a little to add more shape to fit the contours of body/clothes. Meh?

SHE LOOKS LIKE A SIM! XD nah joking although it does sort of remind me of one, but thats not bad! She's beautiful and i have absolute respect for anyone who uses a mouse for soemthing as detailed as this. i got a tablet because i got fed up of using the mouse XP i'd love to be able to colour like this, i can't even begin to imagine how long it actually did take 0_o i love everything about it x

I like the colouring, especially the hair, but the anatomy seems a bit off... she appears to have no collar bone, and the shoulder doesn't bend over like that ^^;

I could never color on the computer, for many reasons, one of them being; I do NOT have enough patience, and I also don't' have a good program. XD;

And wow, first finished project in 15 months? Wow, I never finish anything XD, that i like anyways.

but wow, this is really good. XD I love how you did Sakura's eyes, and her hair, and everything else 8D Awesome job :>
