My first contest, ever.
This was an exciting project. Sorcerer's/Mage's always ruled for me, hence I chose this subject for my piece.

P.s what's your secret? lol kidding.

:iconmathiaarkoniel:
MathiaArkoniel Featured By Owner Jun 25, 2010  Professional Digital Artist
Lol! The secret is a LOT of practice. I've been painting for 15 years, using only digital media for the past 5 years, and I still am a mediocre artist, still have to learn a million things. So it's practice, practice, practice. ;)

Thanks again!

I am most honored to have been chosen as a semi-finalist. I do not believe I have a chance winning the finals, but it's of little consequence. I am more than satisfied to have made it into the semi-finals. :D

Oh, I'd love to enter your contest, but I am moving right now and as such, have very little time to paint. I won't be done with moving before your contest ends, sadly, but maybe next time. :)

MathiaArkoniel Featured By Owner Jun 25, 2010  Professional Digital Artist
No problem. ;) As to your question; could you be a bit more precise what you are referring at? I did not use any special effects from Photoshop. I've painted everything with brushes.

After having ready a couple of the comments from the FEZ semi-finalist news article, I must say that sadly people are laboring under a misunderstanding. Photoshop has no cool 'buttons' that can make it easy to paint. :) You have to do it *all* yourself, line for line, shadow and lighting and all. Please, don't misunderstand. I am not saying that *you* are off this opinion. Am just making sure that you know that I have no tricks up my sleeve I could teach you to do things fast and easy. I've been painting for 15 years now (for 5 years digitally), and all it really takes is a lot of practice. Don't give up, and you definitely can become a pro. ;)

Lol. Thirteen is a great age to start drawing. I've been doing it my whole life, but I only started seriously at around 13. ;) So take your time, and don't give up. I'll gladly give you advice if I can, but please bear in mind that I only visit my DA account once or twice a month, so it might be some time before I reply.
