To Rattrapmax6:

As for me air-brushing my designs, no, not really.  However, a lot of my artworks — like “Hericorn of the Heavenly Night”, “A Blissful Heaven”, and “Dragon that Gives Rainbows” — were first done simply in colored pencil and/or graphic designer pencils and/or even thick wet paint that was actually melted from the points of colored/watercolored pencils, and then added a well-needed handful of computer-based special effects (like custom lens flares, Xero Mistifier, and some of that other jazz!  Wink ) to the mix once I finally scanned them to the computer.  Truly very fun once you get the hang of it all, you know what I am saying, man?  Cheesy !

And, as well, I want you to know that the following designs of mine so far........
    •
Dragon Spirit Rising
• Rainbow LeafDragon
• Sunlight Amidst the Rain
• The Silky Sea
• Fireball Flare Colony
• Hyperspeed!!
• We’re Outta Here!
• Mermaid of the Moonlight Flourishing Oasis
• Blazing in the Beautiful Sunset
• The Sword and the Beautiful Moonlight
[/list]
........have exclusively been created on the computer *only* rather instead of on paper at all.  Do not forget that now!  :cool:

And also, I thank you for your fine comment, Rattrapmax6!!  See you around, and so wonderful to have you here!!!  (^_^)v

To Rattrapmax6 again:

Look, if there is a brand of colored-pencil makers that I would *definitely* recommend, my man, it has gotta be Derwent.  Cheesy  And ohh my, they got AWESOME types of quality colored and watercolored pencils, including a couple of rather practical color names of chocolate and gunmetal, too!  In addition, they create such outstanding different other kinds of pencils that you can name, pastel, studio, signature, metallic, the whole works, you know what I’m saying?  :cool: !

By the way, I was VERY fortunate enough to have received the whole 72-colored-pencil set from Derwent just this past Christmas!!  I have not used it as of yet, but I will soon!  ^_- !  Have a quick look:



Nice, huh?  :king:

And let us not forget that the *official* Derwent website is located at http://www.pencils.co.uk/.  In the site, it features very many fascinating pieces of info about their whole entire line-up of pencil and accessory products, plus some great history about how their pencils were made, taking you back in time to as early as the year 1500!!  Shocked  Truly amazing stuff that you gotta read, Rattrapmax6, I must say now!!!  Cheesy

Well, I thank you so much again for such a wonderful time this Saturday.  God bless you and you have yourself a splendidly good weekend and the brand-new week to come as well!!!  Wink=b !



SHARING WITH YOU SOME OF THE BEST TONIGHT,

Derwents are nice, but in my opinion, they are more well known for they're sketching/drafting pencils.  i wouldn't recommend their colored pencils because they don't fill enough, and the tones are a bit, well, i guess i can't describe it, but i'm not too fond of it.  

however, if you want high quality for a fair price, i recomend prismacolor.  they not only blend great, but the colors are just outstanding.  not to mention prismacolor makes excellent markers that match the exact colors of the pencils.  so if you use "Spanish orange (P1270)" as a base color using the marker, you can touch up and or shade with a "Spanish Orange (P1270)" pencil.  not to spam up the place but i've tried alot of different brands, and Prismacolor is by far the best in my opinion.

EDIT:

nice stuff AAP

Looks certainly good!  Cheesy

But the page loads for ages... I do not know how you did, but you disabled right - clicking so i could not check what you made to those images. I think they should not have such a huge size that the introductional page had to load for more than 10 minutes for me. On the other hand i can get anything what appears on the screen if i want, but you effectively disabled problem hunting for me :evil: (I just wanted to mention that if you display something you can not prevent downloading it if somebody really wants to, not that i will steal anything. Just got a bit annoyed of it).

Mech: Your avatar is a Cheetah? Cheesy (Hope not, but everyone leaves "tear marks" from their face  :-? )

Its a clever trick (Tho bypassible(Thats what the CopyRight is for..)), don't see why its so annoying.. if he doesn't want any1 copying picks then why should he? And others might just up and still somthing and credit take for it..

As i said it is pointless. I can get anything what appears on my desktop, no matter how hard you are triing to make it impossible. I would accept a challenge in this subject if you wish (Getting all the artwork Smiley ), but that would not be really kind to Adigun. As i said i do not want to "steal".

It just annoyed me because this way it was impossible to find out the actual size of those images what possibly made the page so slow, so i could not give any idea to speed things a little up.

To Spotted Cheetah:

Here is the situation on you here.  I can (for a limited time only) arrange the downloads to be presented on my pages as a technical way to prevent LONG page loads for you there.  But there is a *big* risk involved with that, as it might open up a gaping hole of a possibility of at least some people using that very method as no more than an excuse to just steal my arts and even call them theirs (which I absolutely forbid there myself!), so I will leave it up to the people writing in this thread as to whether or not this is a good idea before agreeing with you on that.  That way, I want to make certain of what is best for my works of art, understand please?  Smiley !

Until then, about the only thing you can do so far is to contact me at my new E-mail address shown on my Copyright Notice section.  That is the only sure access you will be able to reach (for now) towards using my artworks for personal use, blogs, or on your website with my accepted permission from you.  It is the only way, man.

Anyway, thank you so much for your concern.  :cool:



And finally, I go over to you, Mech1031:

I have tried Prismacolor pencils myself some several number of years back (namely, the metallic ones!), and they worked *truly* great, too — and I still have them today, thank God!  :cool:  So yes, you are very correct about them, as I have learned from experience, Mech1031.   !



Be catching you both again, Spotted Cheetah and Mech1031, as I get back now to what I need to do tonight.  Wink
