.:SUPER SHINY:. by SaffuranLoL .:SUPER SHINY:. by SaffuranLoL
Well here's the third anniversary picture, once again I am sticking with the super theme because it seems appropriate to make something like this for the occasion every year, just to continue the trend. The original was very bland and uninspired so I figured I'd try for a more "floaty" look in this one, and I also made sure to not use the color black AT ALL.. it really made the picture pop out in ways I hadn't expected.

As for the aura, I envision it as being more of a random burning, swirling cycle of heat energy over the more accepted DBZ flame. I figure that for at least the briefest moment, the area directly around him would get heated by said energy to high levels, setting little particles and such on fire (to explain the sparkles) and that would just sort of be how it looks.. a shapeless gob of swirling energy that sets little particles and dust on fire for a flashy effect.

Thanks for stickin' by me and such for 3 years, dA, I really hope you enjoy this little rendition of Super Saff and I hope for many more good years in the future.

One of the things that came to mind when I was thinking of how I wanted a more original aura.. was a supernova. I just pictured a star and everything around it exploding into brilliant light with flaming dust and stars the only spectators, it really inspired the idea to change my idea of an aura from something simplistic like the DBZ flame, into something more dynamic and appealing to the eye.

lol gobble up Fairy Saff and his magic pixie dust. =P

Thanks, happy you do.. and I'd seen other deviants do pictures without the color black before and doing the same thing here just made sense, I wanted the picture to pop and seem illuminated, and there's no better way to start than to stop the same dull dark color from "Blawifying" the picture. ^^ <3

U can check, just look at the drop down menu that says "Deviant for [] Years"

And thanks, glad you like it, and he can't glow through his shoes n gloves so that's probably why they're darker. =P
