Warm Bench by JohnSu Warm Bench by JohnSu
Originally intended to be called "Vomit Girl." I think I like this one better.

Anyhow, this isn't a character driven piece, so there's no interesting backstory to her. She's just sitting on a bench, waiting for maybe a person or vehicle. Or rain. But some of you are probably still back at the first sentence wondering about vomit.

Let's just say that instead of a bag of oranges on the ground, it was a larger, soppier bag of you-know-what. Ultimately I decided against it because it was just gross and I wasn't really looking forward to drawing stuff oozing out of the corners.

This turned out to be a fun one to do. I tried to emulate water coloring with a vector brush using a whole bunch of alpha pallets (ranging from 2~25% in opacity). It was a lot of layers. I don't know how many, though, since I'm using groups in Flash instead of actual layer-layers.

Incidentally, this is probably the first haiku/senryuu I've written in years. If for some reason you can't read it, it says:

"A bird on my head
I must go to the restroom
...it is too late now."

BIG BLACK EEEEYYYES @A@

Made in Flash

EDIT: For some reason, the print isn't showing up. Anyhow, here's a link to it: [link]

EDIT2: Alright, looks like it's working again. Thanks, dA!

This reminds me of cute, pretty, artsy covers of journals I can't buy due to engrish things such as the text in your piece. :D I enjoyed.

Emulating watercolours in Flash? You are my idol.

Would it be possible to elaborate...?

you use lots and lots of low-alpha brush strokes, and layer them on top of each other using Groups.

i understand low alpha and layering them on top of each other, but why use groups? teach me oh wise one!

Because for layering, you have to use either Groups, Layers, or Symbols. Groups are by far the fastest to create and the least clutterful.
