I Don't Mind the Rain by SaffuranLoL I Don't Mind the Rain by SaffuranLoL
When you live where it rains 24/7 you become used to inclimate conditions.

This is probably one of my better attempts at lineart and by far my best recent lineart, the coloring of the character also came out well. All I needed to do was add one of my simple shape based backgrounds and make lots of shiny rain blowing in the wind with it slightly bouncing off.

I am happy with the final result and I think for a new character, Saffron is quite the attention hog for me.

Hope you enjoy this wet and rainy work.

Program(s) Used- Adobe Photoshop CS2

How did you do the raining effect?

Dodge tool?

I will think about noting it to you, tomorrow will be more convenient for me since it;s late here. It is a crazy simple technique tho, that I promise.

I tried a quick but effective method for the drops themselves and my Gaussian blur method, that I've only told :icondsnajde3: so far, for the rain bouncing off the figure effect, I always find that slight blur and haze to improve the visual quality of a rainy pic.

The method isn't anything too complicated to pull off tho. Just simple and effective as previously stated.

I don't see why some people get too bothered about rain, it's only water. =P
Nice work on the rain effect. :)

Meh, living in a place like Seattle, the rain is as common as the air we breathe. We have evolved beyond the need for umbrellas and are like mermaids on land with normal human-ish features... but if you look close enough you may see gills from time to time. :D j/k

I have relatives in Oklahoma so I know what you mean. doesn't mean I don't slightly despise your state (assuming Oklahoma is where you live) for stealing our Sonics tho..

Oh well, Sometime this year or next I will be seeing those relatives after my trip to the Philippines, so I may be in the area.

I was set to Away, and I guess you can say it was a combination of this and the fact that I was actually gone early in the day and never changed it back. :D
