Engo by animalartist16 Engo by animalartist16
My half of the trade with :iconnewt7111: of her character, Engo.

Tried something a little new with this and played around with color and atmosphere. I wasn't sure how it was going to turn out at first, but I actually like how it came out. ;u;
It was so fun too, I love this character <3 I couldn't stop detailing and tweaking stuff xD

But just as I was about to post a WIP (close to when it was finished) on tumblr, I closed the file to reopen and resize it since the size was too large, and I was SURE I had saved the most recent stuff I did on the file with the layers... but turns out I didn't, so I lost HOURS of work, and in the harder/more detailed parts of the picture as well, so I lost all the layers, since I decided to finish the picture from the .PNG file saved. All those ruins and the bg behind Engo (not including the trees) and some parts on Engo as well had to be done without layers by drawing around the subject. So that sucked, but at least it worked out somehow. -o-

No refs, but I used this image for inspiration: [link]

I love all the different little details you put into this. For some reason the tail really catches my eye. You did a great job of muting the colors and making it fade into the background, that really added a lot of depth.

The character was a pleasure to draw, I love her design, and jungle settings are one of my favorite things to render and experiment around with too, so it was good practice. C:

Oh I love the texture on this especially where the rays of light are~ The background is just so lovely haha you really appreciate how hard forest scenes are after you've tried one and failed really badly XD The way you made the wings just a little bit transparent so you can see some green through them is a really nice touch! c:

Forest scenes are pretty hard, or at least challenging and time consuming haha. But they're fun. C':

I can never get the colours right XD I always have this picture in my head of exactly what I want but I can never get the colours and stuff to work out the same OTL

Oh yeah, the colors can be difficult to get xD Make them too saturated and don't blend enough and it looks fake, blend too much and make the colors too dull with no brighter colors and it also doesn't look right... I usually use diluted darker colors, with more saturated colors sparingly in certain places, and use other colors in the image pretty much everywhere on REALLY low opacity (usually less than 10%). It brings everything together. Like for the grass, where I colored it green first, I also put yellows near the top, oranges/red in the middle, and blues/purples in the shadows. I normally put every color of the rainbow in pictures somewhere unless it's a monotone piece haha. There's a saying I heard before that I try to follow: "If you put any color in a piece, put it EVERYWHERE". (unless of course you want that color to clearly stand out, but even then sometimes you can still get it to stand out in different ways, even if you do put the color elsewhere). It just takes lots of practice and experimentation, and some tutorials can help as well. Have you ever read =purplekecleon's color tutorial? o:

It's not as much not knowing what colours as much as knowing what colours but being unable to get the colours I want with the colour wheel XD

Hehe, I always recommend it because it helped me a lot xD
Hmm, you could try using the color picker on colors you've blended together or other images and pay attention to where they fall on the color wheel? o:
I tend to use colors that seem to fall on the first vertical line (and the both horizontal lines) if you divide the square of color into thirds, but even moreso I just drag around the color until I find the one I want. It takes a bit to get used to where the colors are and such though. I always seem to go over the colors I picked anyways with other low opacity colors, so that helps me get them better xD
