- Gold Dirt - by Skysealer - Gold Dirt - by Skysealer
Christmas gift art for =SageGoat of her lovely character, and personal favourite of mine, Gold Dirt! :D

Sage, you're an amazing person and an epic friend. You're such a sweet heart and naturally so, you don't see many people such as yourself anymore, a diamond amongst pebbles! XD I've learned so much from you in the past year, in the past few months even, it's astonishing! There's no way I can ever repay you for the awesome conversations, help, and advice you've given me and the things I've learned, but I can at least wish you a Merry Christmas and hope that the new year is even better than this one. Thanks for being awesome. :heart:

P.S: I got your card! :D

-------

I'll be posting one piece of gift art each day for the next few days up to the 1st of January, aka NEW YEAR! I still have a few to finish up, so posting times may be irregular. It feels good to properly ink again!

Tools Used (from start to finish):
Photoshop CS, Wacom Intuos 3

Your cel shading looks great, how long did it take?

Skysealer Featured By Owner Dec 26, 2010  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I have no idea, I didn't think to record my time. No more than a few hours though, cel shading is much faster to do than the usual for me!

WOW! The amount of detail in this is INCREDIBLE, Sky. O.o I mean, just the head has so many lines and strokes in it that it's just... practically mind blowing. <33
In other words, this looks fantastic. :love:
I'm just excited this year because my parents got me CS5 Design Standard! |D It has Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign, and a couple of other minor programs that are ALL CS5!! Such a big leap from Elements 6.0. I about died of happiness. :heart:
I hope your Christmas has been an awesome one! :meow:

Haha, I've worked with all of those programs before! Indesign is a GREAT program for creating PDFs, book covers, and other literature-type themed work and graphic design. Illustrator, man that program is a beast with vectors, but I love Photoshop the most just for its shear flexibility. XD

Also, thanks for the lovely comment! :D Merry Christmas!!

I actually haven't worked with Indesign or Illustrator before, but I hear Illustrator is fun to do linework in so I'm excited. :3 And then photoshop is just pure magic haha~
