Salt by Darbaras Salt by Darbaras
Right brain: Oh man, I have such a cool idea of Tia and Sajiid in the radio room sitting at a desk wth bulky headsets, trying to make contact with the surface, lots of communication equipment around, papers of all kind, an empy metal mug and a full ashtray on the table ... Sajiid is sitting and ...
Left brain: ... nah, just draw Tia stading still, preferably from behind, I wanna see some ass.
Right brain: Sure! Can I draw a background to it?
Left brain: Whatever, knock yourself out.

*Two weeks later*

Another fantastic new piece of Tia standing. Outstanding job, Darb!

I gotta be honest, I'm super disappointed with this one; boring idea, the colours don't harmonise, Tia gets lost in the shit around her as I wanted to force all this crap into a frame, ruining the composition. Good job. *claps*


I think I'm gonna retire her for a little while, till I get more creative, because I really got bored of these.

I know it has little to do with the actual picture, but I noticed the greek words on the shed in the bg. Are you greek by any chance? :D

Looks like a comic book scene. :)

Wow. That is...definitely unique. I've seen a lot of anthro sharks but this is definitely the best one I've seen. That rendering looks like it was done in actual watercolor. I don't know why you think the colors are bad. They unify beautifully! The only problem I see is your character and the background are a little to similar in color scheme; only the shark's head really stands out. Desaturating the background a bit more or tweaking the color scheme of either the character or background might help separate them a bit more.

I must be blind, (that or tired, either or) but all I see is fantastical imagination birthed into the mercurial world via your talented fingers. BUT dat's just me.

I think it works well. I think good artists are usually way more critical of their own work than anybody else is :)

:XD: That's probably the best description I've ever read. :clap: Awesome work on this piece. Even what you don't like turns out awesome. xD A lot of people with they could say the same. ;)

If you're worried about her getting lost, you could try fading the background (including the linework) a bit more. I don't see anything wrong with the colors though. 
ShadowTheDeer Featured By Owner May 1, 2016
But it looks so good and astonishing! I like it how the colors flow together and fits perfectly in the setting.

dear left brain, I like the background
SHARK-008 Featured By Owner May 1, 2016  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I still think it's a good picture and still would like to see a story with this character but you're the artist. :P
Tigershark06 Featured By Owner May 1, 2016  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I see where your worry comes in on this piece, the background and foreground colors have much the same saturation.  However I don't see her lost in this picture.  You've done just the right highlighting with your light sources that she is easy to spot and focus on.

I think it looks really lovely!
DJcroc2016 Featured By Owner May 1, 2016
I personally don't think the background looks crammed or rushed. It's just a vehicle, crates, and a metallic structure.
And as mentioned before, i really like how her tail is attached to her behind.
None of those silly anthros that have... you know, a thick tail and a big "bottom"

All the details ... wow .
