Azure Light by 7THeaven Azure Light by 7THeaven
Quick speed paint portrait of Aeros Vangard glowing with some blue energy.

I try to learn rendering, then I realized that my detailing is no where near a realistic look. It still looks cartoon-ish :P

Done in 2 hours

Yes, it is cartoonist with realistic qualities to it. That is what makes you have a unique style, but if you want to make it realistic all you have to do is work in texture with real life references. :iconinuawesomeplz:

That actually made me feel better haha, didn't realized I've made such a unique style :D Thanks a bunch dude.
And I'll try using references, I hardly use real photos.

Getting the texture just right is hard, but I do have a few fur brushes you might like to use as well as a tutorial on how to use them. :meow:

I don't know how people manage to do speedpainting. It takes me forever to make something decent T_T

This is pretty darn awesome though :D

XD I'm way too precise and slow, and distracted -_- I don't like feeling rushed either.

I hate the feeling of being rushed, and I'm always against time haha that's why I practice speed paint. But I can't speed paint everything I submit. I fear for the quality :P

With you, even your lowest quality stuff is great. Well, I think so anyway :P Yeah, I guess it might help you draw faster. Though, that's a little too close to immersion therapy for my taste.

what's wrong with "cartoonish", or toony. I love that. :) Realistic-ness isn't easy to get at all. If I were to try draw stuff with detail, it will look worse X_X"

Awesome!
