Getaways Turned Holidays by Starlitdragon Getaways Turned Holidays by Starlitdragon
My half of an art trade with :iconmanamaraya:, which is really, really overdue. I apologize! That aside, Turu is a really fun character to draw and colour. Bees!

I'm still struggling with relearning the Open Canvas UI. Ugghh. Two months of using mainly photoshop has wiped out that part of my mind.

You should go to Mana's gallery and see more Turu:

:O This is *really* gorgeous. Doesn't look like you had any troubles at all. It has a really big feel, like a large metropolis, and the colour scheme is so harmonious and just seems so lovely. :3

Very nice coloring and background. It has a nice scifi fantasy feel. I think the only real problem is his right arm. It seems a bit long and bent at an odd angle.

Starlitdragon Featured By Owner Jul 8, 2009
You're right about his arm- I have a bad habit of making arms too long, and hands too large for the character. XD Somehow these things only become apparent to me after I add colour. -.-;;;

You can always try asking friends on messenger and such if anything looks odd before you color. It's always good to have a second opinion.

I really like the light quality in this picture.

Thank you!! I'm really glad you like it. I started it such a long time ago, doing it in tiny bits and pieces. I think the original idea was to have him leaning off the side of a train, but that got warped over time. xD
