Lesson One by Digi-Dolphin Lesson One by Digi-Dolphin
Omg, I lost all track of time working on this. My hands hurt, my head hurts, and I copped out on the Eternal Sword Pin/Twin Blades Insignia by using a doubled version of an image file of the Eternal Sword. I can't draw it alone to save my own life. The Holy World Symbol was imported from the Catherine wallpaper and resized (thank you vectors!!!)

I hate backgrounds, so this one actually looks okay, which is a rank up from 'I hate it'. Words are some of the lyrics from Lesson One, the song from Mulan II that makes me think of these two whenever I hear it. Listen to it [link] and you'll see.

This thing was mega-huge. Had to reduce the size by half when the finished png hit 17 megs. ><;; My stamp is all over the place to keep it safe, in case anyone wants to grab it and use it for wallpaper or w/e. Okay, I'm going to bed now. Yeesh.

Edit: Forgot to polish Caleb's sleeve bands. Now they look properly metal.

If it fits, it ships.
You really have grown as an artist. This is just amazing.

Thanks! X3 Your praise is always the best to me. Though I dunno why anyone would wanna ship brothers; oh well, not my kink.

I spent like an entire day on this thing, omg. I didn't get done until about 1am. I'm so glad I wasn't busted by my parents for being on the comp for that long.

X3 I started with just the flat colors on the brothers and no background, then about twelve hours later, finished product! Although I forgot to shine up the tops of Caleb's sleeves, so I might go back to fix that later today. :blush:

All the shading was done using a dark green on a layer and playing with filters and highlights were a light blue on another layer, also filter playing, the shadows were gradients and I grabbed new brushes to help me do the windows on the 'buildings' and the trees. The Holy World symbol was an imported vector I had done about a month back, resized (i love how vectors don't lose their clarity) and then put through a vertical grain to make it look like colored metal and embossed to really make it stand out.

I could go on all day about all the little things I did to get that background to work with me, but I dun wanna start rambling. XD though I think I already rambled quite a bit.

argleflargleblargle. I keep forgetting you can draw too. And then you do some thing like this and break half the logic of my brain. The other half is just sitting back and laughing at the whole situation. So yeah. Also, this is win.
