Miroku. For Boonies.

Actually I should be answering everyone's comments right now, but the doodling fever has gripped me and doesn't allow me to do anything besides, well, doodling.


The sketch for this has been sitting on my hard drive for weeks, but today boonies mentioned in her LJ that her lovely, lovely Miroku/Kagome story Hard Candy is almost finished... and my glee at hearing that was such that I dug this out and finished it.

Oh, and page four of the Sesshoumaru/Kagome thingie is half finished as well. I still need a title... Any suggestions?

No suggestions for titles, but GUH. Miroku = OHGODYES. The eyes are gorgeous. And, um... the lips. I may have to leave the husband and marry your pictures instead.

I may have to leave the husband and marry your pictures instead.

Yes, well, I thought about that too (Genma/Kakashi harem, mmmm), but then I remembered they can't.. you know. Have intercourse. Or make babies (other than rabid plot bunnies involving them having hot sweaty sex with someone). It's a vicious cycle really.

XD Y'know, I'm not the biggest Miroku fan, but that's some awesome fanart. I love your line and coloring styles - the color blending is so lovely and so real. ^_^

Er, names? Um, I'm not clever, so...

"It All Started With a Strand"
"Thread Bound"

Thanks, also for the titles. And you so are clever. Hey, I've seen the way you write.

You're welcome.

And since when was my fanfiction clever? I thought it was more like mind-numbingly boring...

Oh. My. God.

*gets hot*

If that's what you call a doodle, what do you call art? I don't think I'd survive it. *winks*

Hmm, title ideas. The only ones I can think of are Open Options, Do it Again?, and a cheesy Silk and Chains. Bleh, I'm having an off day...

Heee, I don't call anything I do art. Because, I'm not Michelangelo. *sighs*

The titles sound good -- thanks a lot! (I think 'Open Options' in particular is a good one.) :)

Well, maybe it's a good thing you're not. Because Michelangelo...didn't he have a beard? Plus, dead so...

Um, yeah. Open Options was my fav out of the 3. Was thinking perverted thoughts and of things that were...open. It's just that kind of day. (^.^)

Re: ::thud::
I swear, I only read the "Swallow me" part and DIED.

Don't mind if I do, Miroku!

Hee. I didn't even mean this particular innuendo, but now that you mention it... *grins*

I did it exclusively in Painter again -- I'm not using that program anywhere near its full potential, mind you -- and it's really not that hard to use. Here a few steps:

1. I set the Canvas to whatever size/colour/resolution I want.

2. I create a new transparent layer and use one of the Pencil brushes (low opacity) to do the lineart (usually I do a rough version first with a larger brush, then do the final version on another layer). The layer mode of my lineart layers is set to default (pulldown menu in the top left corner of the layer window -- other modes include multiply, lighten and so on).

[ If you have a scanned drawing you want to colour you should paste that onto a new layer and set the layer mode to 'multiply' or 'gel', that way the layer looks transparent and you can paint in the colours on another layer beneath it. ]

3. Now I create a second layer for the colouring and place it under the lineart layer. I colour in everything with the airbrush (I tend to use different layers for the skin/clothes and hair). Then I use the 'blenders' tool (soft blender stump, usually) to blend the colours a little. I do the blending on yet another transparent layer, with the 'Pick Up Underlying Color' option activated in the Layers window.

4. I use some other layers for the lighting effects and things, and sometimes I do more blending on a final layer on top of the lineart so I can get that slight painterly effect.

Well. I hope this helps -- I don't know which version of Painter you have. :)

As to the kitten, I (actually my parents) already have two tomcats, one of which is not neutered and incontinent. And limping. And unbearably noisy. Another kitten would probably be the death of me. ;)

Although... cute. And fluffy! *sighs*

Re: ::thud::
Painter is scary in its opulence.

Indeed. I still remember the first frustrating days of continuous swearing when I started working with it and thought I didn't need to Read The Fucking Manual. Because, computer scientist.

Well, I like to think my stupidity has lessened since then.

Which only goes to show that I'm a moron.
