Ballroom Dance by Jotaku Ballroom Dance by Jotaku
This was a full cg, full background commission for Lil-Maj over on FA.
And.. holy shit.. took FOREVER. About 16-20 hours give or take some internet surfing. I spent a full 12 hours on this in one day, too, and holy crap was my hand cramping. xD;;

Hnn if you wanna see some detail shots and all the WIPs showing my process, go here--> [link]

Oh my gosh, dude, this is GORGEOUS!!! The lighting, the shading and them HUES! The expressions are really adorable too. You have such a unique style for anthros too, I just love it >w< The atmosphere and background are beautiful in this as well! Just out of curiosity, how much would a commission like this cost?

Aaaaaaaaaand this is why I like to commission pencil sketches (as a preference), these days. This stuff takes forever! I start feeling bad for the artists!

great job, Jo.

I clicked on this b/c I like ballroom dancing. ;p

I don't think you should feel bad! At least not with me. These types of things--with full backgrounds and such--are amazing practice. While I couldn't WAIT for it to be over (the background, at least) I've now learned lots of new tricks to paint them. Kinda one of those things you're glad you did once you're done.

And thank yoouuu! <3
