Okay, I have to explain myself.

This started life as an oekaki, but one of your members* convinced me it'd be a good idea to AA it. On oekaki. The lines were sort of messy to begin with and I should have corrected them as I went, but messy they remained, and so the AA job is... uh... well, subpar. Anyway, this led quite naturally to me restricting the palette as well (and tweaking it after I finished), at least by a little bit.

So if you're wondering why it's SO HUGE now you know. :D

I'm pretty sick of looking at this (oekaki timer says 10.3 hours spent total), so it's unlikely I'll be making any changes to it, but I welcome any critique that I can apply to future pieces :D

I've had bad experiences with sailors, but the title/banner actually has nothing to do with this, and everything to do with the fact that I thought it sounded really cool.

*I won't say who, as then suspicion may fall on me when the hit I've taken out on him for this is executed.

 

EDIT: Forgot! Various google image references. Lots of them.

This is beautiful. Oh my, you did great, especially for such a large piece.

 That's rather beautiful :D

I just think that "Never" and "Trust" are a bit too close together (Though still totally readable)

Elegant line art ! On the other hand perhaps the AA could be improved in some places ( her hair for example ).

Manjaman: I agree about the arm, actually. I was trying to stylize it in such a way that she (although dead) seemed to be reclining on the waves (I was listening to a song when I started; the first line says: "sweet annabelle/as seen reclining on an ocean swell" and I liked the imagery) rather than being exactly washed among them--a happy medium, you know? But I don't think I pulled it off entirely--you can see that the hair isn't behaving exactly as it would either, although I think I handled that slightly better and it's closer to what I wanted. It was educational, though! I ended up erasing a knee that was showing through the foam for the same reason.

More thanks are in order too :)

I just tried to make something very simple with an similar style, and ended in a little fail...

 

This work is really inspirating...

Thanks :)

Wonderfully beautiful!

Would be even more so if I found a way to relate the drapes to some boat, but I failed.

I expect to see more goodies coming from you.

d9nis: Yes, I used a tablet. I switched back to a mouse for some of the fiddlier AA, but it's mostly tablet :)

Thanks everyone :D

Are those few yellow pixels in between her legs some bush or is it accidental?

Very nice anyway.
