Reach For The Sun  
It's FINISHED! Finally I am done. This drawing has been in the works for over a year. That's awful I took so long, but the good thing is that I'm way better now than I could have been back then. So this is a scene from the unfinished story The Sun and the Water. ACTipton80, I know you said you wanted to see this done. Well here it is at last.

Click for full size.
I hope the full size works right. Photobucket is changing stuff. It used to take you to the full size but now some of them take you to the page instead and you have to do an extra unnecessary click. I am very happy with this. The background of trees and sky didn't take me that long. It was about four layers. So Cope and Owen had another battle. Cope wasn't doing well and had to escape so he flew off on his jet shoes. Owen was so furious about loosing him that his anger was strong enough for powered fly. His wings came out and he chased after Cope, but to Cope's horror. He called Solan who was going to a meeting in the Flare Enterprise company chopper. Cope was catching up to it but got hit in the feet with a fire ball. It destroyed his jets, but Solan managed to grab his hand just in time as Owen closes in from behind them. But Solan's grip isn't good and Cope's sweaty slimy hand isn't helping matters. I can just hear Solan screaming, "HANG ON!"

And since I didn't want to lose the detail I put on Owen here is a detailed view of just him.

Click for full size.

I love this. Though it's still not fully detailed because it was a small image, I did draw him on a separate page and inked him as his own file because I knew I wanted to separate him from the rest of the image. He's got that murderous look in his eyes and he is intent on killing Cope.

I REALLY like how you did the trees! And the sky.

This is an action packed pic. At first glance I thought it was somebody saving somebody who got sucked out of a plane!

I really like the expression onSolan's face.

Although it took a long time, it was worth it! (Though I totally understand the aggravation of waiting so long to get it out!)

Thank you. When I started I thought it would be hard but I did it pretty fast which got me pumped to do the whole thing.

Yeah, that's pretty much what's happening. Solan is trying to pull Cope inside. Me too. I'm glad the expression turned out right. He's actually worried and that's rare since he's usually not expressive.

Yes, it was worth it.

The pic looks awesome! I really love how it turned out.
Photobucket is annoying me. I HATE that it takes you to a page now instead of directly to the image. I'm looking for a new image hosting site. I've been using Tumblr but I want a private one since my Photobucket albums were private unless I gave a direct link to a pic.

Thank you. It was worth the aggravation.

That's what I like about Photobucket. All my accounts are private. Does this one take you to the page? If so they are being sneaky because for me it takes me directly to the pic. That would piss me off and I even linked directly to the .jpg.
The Silver Wolf of Darkness: Crazeh Coridor!silvolf on February 22nd, 2013 01:17 pm (UTC)
No, they take me to the actual pic. So since the "direct link" to the pics takes you to the page, do you have to bring up the pic on Photobucket and use the copy image location thing so you get the direct link to the image?
Des: Ophidius angrythagirion on February 22nd, 2013 01:31 pm (UTC)
Ok good. Yes, I used the Direct Link thing for this. I have always used that but I notice ever since they started warning they will move servers they now add extra number to the file names. The old pics that don't have this seem to be the ones that get taken to a page now even if they used to be direct link. I hate that.
The Silver Wolf of Darkness: Ignignoktsilvolf on February 22nd, 2013 04:48 pm (UTC)
That's interesting it worked for you because when I posted my bookmarks on dA, I uploaded a pic of them to Photobucket and used the Direct Link thing but it took me to the page instead of the photo by itself. Or maybe it did it cos I was logged in? But it never used to do that.

Glad you got it done. I love the trees. They look like a painting. Poor Cope. I hope Solan doesn't drop him. I'm surprised either Cope or Owen didn't lose their glasses on a high speed flight like this.
Des: Solan on Drumsthagirion on February 22nd, 2013 03:08 pm (UTC)
Thanks. I'm glad my backgrounds are coming out so much better. Solan's doing his best not to drop him. Hum, I hadn't thought about that. I've been on roller coasters and convertible cars and my glasses have never fallen off. I don't know how fast they were flying though. Some glasses can be pretty tight. The wind is pushing into their faces too so that would help keep them on.

It is so good to see this completed finally! It was always such a great concept. I remember some of the ideas we came up with for this story.

The trees turned out very well and the scene is such pure action! Owen looks murderous.

Mow I know where those dark helicopters are from. It's not te government...hehe
Des: Ophidius angrythagirion on February 23rd, 2013 01:53 am (UTC)
Thanks. Yeah, I've got a lot of good ideas for this story. I hope I can get in the mood to write it again and finish it. Writing is something I need to make time for soon.

I'm glad you like the trees. I love doing action scenes. Everything else just seems kind of boring. That he is.

Haha, yeah.

It was a lot of work, but it turned out really well. I think you did a fantastic job on that picture. All of your effort really shows.

Thank you. I'm very glad you like it.

Wow you weren't kidding when you said your art has been improving.

The background, it's amazing! Those fiery wings look very cool too. And yeah Owen looks like he's going to do some serious murder. :D
Des: Solan in Hufflepuffthagirion on March 3rd, 2013 02:39 am (UTC)
Hehe, yep. I have improved on background. I'm glad you like it. Thanks. I love Owen's wings. They are fun to draw.
