Rain Color on Me by Gezusfreek Rain Color on Me by Gezusfreek

Commission Info: [link]

I am very happy with how this turned out. The initial idea behind this illustration was not to be done in markers, but I wanted to do a marker version of it as well. I just couldn't help but fall in love with the idea of a rainbow of colors raining down on this grey, yet happy, girl. Speaking of the girl, I really like how she turned out. Especially since I only used 5 shades of grey on her. :3

Here is a list of all the colors I used. (All of the markers used are Copics)

Paper: Plain White Cardstock
Lineart: Done with Copic Multiliners (Clouds were done with a blue Prismacolor Color Multiliner)
Girl: C1, C2, C3, C5, C7, 0, 100
Clouds: B000, B00
Rain: RV29, YR07, YR04, Y17, Y04, YG03, G05, BG18, B06, V17, V09
White gel pen used for highlights
Photoshop used to enhance colors.

Thank you so much for the daily deviation! I am beyond words right now! I would just like to give praise to God for blessing me with this. <3

Daily Deviation

Given 2012-01-23
Vibrant, colourful contrasts join precise marker work in Rain Color on Me by *Gezusfreek ( Suggested by Tajii-chan and Featured by kit-y )
:iconchickadee-chii:
A great attempt at drawing a really good semi-grey-scale picture. I think it's a really cute idea. Anyone can tell that a lot of effort, and meaningful though has gone into this creating this.
I love the clothes chosen for her. They are really well drawn, with precise details. The anatomy, proportion and everything about the girl is perfectly drawn with hardly any room for criticism from me. I also love the fact that the girl is drawn with so much detail, and yet the background is so simplistic. It adds to the effect of the picture, well done.
Now, for improvements, there isn't a whole lot I can really pick up on, however, I'd like to try and find something, as a critique would be pointless without constructive criticism. Maybe, instead of having yellow coming from both clouds, it should only be coming from one. However, the fact that it's coming from two separate clouds, links the fact that it is a joint rainbow, rather than 2 separate ones.
Sorry for not being helpful, but this is a really beautiful piece, well deserving of a Daily Deviation. Over all, keep at it, your work is truly magnificent!

The technique put into this piece of art is astounding. With the grays, you managed to grasp the fundamental aspect of coloring with markers. The shading has no room for perfection, seeing as it's perfect already.

However, I feel as if you are trying to merge two forms of art together, though it's beautiful, it seems a bit awkward. The colored rain and clouds seem to have a different style of art altogether compared to the style you used for the girl. She looks too three dimensional for the two dimensional rain/clouds.

Something I'm a tad picky about, if the rain hit the umbrella, why is the exposed dress and hair not colored?

Still, you managed to take the two and put them together very nicely. Just about everyone has tried to do a "black and white" meets color" thing. Most of the time, they look trashy, or unfinished. You combined them in a very artistic way. Well done.

The concept behind this artwork is clever and well executed! The grey girl and her umbrella are both impressively rendered; she looks polished!

This is an excellent effort Gezusfreek! :thumbsup:;-)
