Dear Scanner, by drawitout Dear Scanner, by drawitout
...
You know, when the blurry, overexposed picture I took with my ancient and broken cell phone is still better than any possible scan setting I can use, even after spending around an hour trying to bring what you destroyed back with Phostoshop...
well, that doesn't say good things about you.


Do you recognize who this is?
Maybe not.
I let her "draw herself", which ended up meshing with a lot of the ideas I had for her re-re-redesign anyway.
I am tooooo frustrated to talk about it right now though. Haaah.

I don't know which version is better. Blargh.

I kinda like the blurriness; it kinda gives it a sort of glossy effect, like some photos that you sometimes see. She also looks great in her design and pose.

LOL Your frustration makes me empathetic, but I can't help but find your scanner rants very hilarious XD I'm sorry for finding your pain amusing, but you put it in such a funny way! I like the photoshopped version best because you brought the colors back! Then again, I usually am a sucker for black in pictures, so that's my deciding factor XD; It's interesting to get to see your art on paper though! I'm more used to it being edited on the computer so the paper is gone o3o

Hahahaha, I'm the same way... If it's too old, it's more effort to actually upload it than to keep saying that it should be uploaded XD

Actually to me this looks like she had someone take an actual photo of her and edit it. But that's just me. c:
Though, if you can take a much better picture with a cell phone than a scanner...that really doesn't say too much "good" things about that thing. To drawitout's scanner: Stop being a pain in her backside!!!! XD

It kind of makes me imagine a photoshoot in a very light room, with silk curtains or something. cx I am thinking of painting over it in Photoshop once this laptop is sorted, just to see how it looks.
And, thank you. I hope it listens! :giggle:

That's exactly what I was thinking. cx Hmm, sounds like a plan to me!
And you're very welcome! Has it listened? :giggle:

I really like this version. I think it's because of the background.

Thanks! I think this picture has the potential to have a nice background suited to the more gauzy feel that this image has.
...Maybe I'll give painting over a try once I have my tablet set up again. c:

It's kind of a neat effect, even if it wasn't supposed to look like that. x) Both images are lovely, though, I love the hook on her snout! <3

Thank you. cx
It looked better to me on my old computer, ehe. I couldn't see the more... yellowish tones on it. |:
It's funny people have only mentioned Cyra's hooked snout with this new design, as it's always been a part of her design(s) that I've been very fond of.
...Maybe the other junk she used to have doesn't distract from it anymore. n_n

I never noticed the hook in her snout before. It's much more prominent now in this design. (:

very neat, and I rather like the blur and overexposure.....kinda makes her skin seem like it feel like velvet

That's actually how phiox skin should be... and close to the effect that I actually made via markers, so I'm very glad it has that effect.

I am so in love with the original image.
Trying to get it on the computer was particularly painful this time. |B
