Rainbow Gems by Onyx-Tigeress Rainbow Gems by Onyx-Tigeress
:bulletred::bulletblue::bulletyellow: Who else gets a Fruity Pebbles / Fruit Loops / Skittles vibe? :bulletgreen::bulletorange::bulletpurple:
Or is it just me....
Regardless I don't want to see either of those cereals for a month. :|

Similar to my deviation Painted but grungier....
Is that a real word? :O_o:

:shrug: Anyways, it's an hour or so worth of work with about 40 layers total trying to decide between all the different directions and looks.
I liked this one the best. :hmm:

Stock was provided by the wonderful ~ftIsis-Stock with the link down below. And no, I did not paint the gems on, though there are some great tutorials on dA that can show you how if you're really that interested.
And my outdated {currently being updated} tutorial on how I manipulate my eyes is listed below as well.

I know what you mean. A manipulation I plan to take only half an hour can sometimes run well over four times that.
Just so many options. :p

And believe me honey, I know what you mean.
I was an honor's student.
I know all about high school. :nod:

Yeah,it happens to me as well,or when it doesn't end up like I want.Sometimes I spent 5 hours to make it look how I wanted,but not often I get that much free time,high school's a bitch

Same here. That's why I lay off of manipulations for some periods of times.

No inspiration. :(

For me it depends on which thoughts,feelings made me do the manipulation

:aww: Ah, a fellow manipulator.
I took a look around your gallery. You've got some good stuff. :la:

Dark colors can help, but I prefer to Burn parts of my image.
I probably use the Burn tool most often. ^^;
I also like to use the dark color overlays and, again, prefer curves to regular contrast changes.

I started making eye manipulations last year around february using photoshop.My works usually have dark themes,i use dark colors most of the time
Reply

Onyx-Tigeress Featured By Owner Jan 20, 2011  Hobbyist General Artist
:thanks: Thank you very much.

Yes, I've spend a good amount of time learning how to edit the curves and levels versus just your basic contrast to get bold colors against super dark settings. :)

If you ever want to take another crack at things I have a few tutorials, and another one coming out soon, that could possibly help. :la:

I always liked the idea of rainbow in the dark.I tried to do smth similar once but it didn't work that well.
I like the texture of the colors

Agreed, rock is my true love when it comes to music, even though I dabble in a bit of everything. :)
Usually my speakers will continue to work, but my bass always blows out.
All the harder rock I suppose. ^^;
Yeah, headphones and batteries are the same in the way that they both eventually die. :dead:
Which when they do, it sucks.
:ohnoes: I hate it when that happens! That's eventually where all my end up.
And 3 hours of the Beiber must have been pleasant. :p
Well, again, I'll have to try them.
I think it's part of Christmas this year. :)
Yeah, they're kind of known for being good quality over here. :D

Aah true... I listen to all sorts of music, but mostly rock.. It might be how loud I play it? o_O
Omigawsh that's like me! It's the thing I hate most about headphones. They always die on you ;_________; Once I was on a long car journey just listening to music, and then when I moved both of the ears stopped working D: Had to put up with Justin Beiber songs for the next 3 hours o_e
Aaah yeah that's true, I've had a few headphones so... It's really good methinks ^_^
Oooh it is? Awesome! :D No wonder it was so expensive :P

Onyx-Tigeress Featured By Owner Nov 22, 2010  Hobbyist General Artist
Probably, but it's also the kinds of listen to too. That's why it never really surprises me when they do finally decide to give out. They've done their share of work for how little they cost.
:ohnoes: Well that's not cool. I had the same problem with mine, eventually it would move to both ears and if I moved the cord to a certain crazy position and held it there I could get reception. :O_o:
Well you can say the quality is high if you've had all kinds of headphones. Then you're comparing to what you had. :aww:
And I'll take your word for it. Airwalk is a high-quality brand here too.

lizjowen Featured By Owner Nov 22, 2010  Hobbyist General Artist
Lawls :P I think our problem is that we listen to them too much ;D
Nope, not just you. Tbh all of mine broke because of the jack so one of the ears would always be disconnected D:
Woop woop! Idk about what you might think about them though, 'cause they were my first pair so I'm un-experienced in saying that the quality of them was very high >_<
Reply
:icononyx-tigeress:
Onyx-Tigeress Featured By Owner Nov 15, 2010  Hobbyist General Artist
I know, I was surprised. I usually blow my bass out in the first six months.
So it's not just me having a problem with the jack. :ohnoes:
Well, again, I'll take a look around and see what I can find. I know things came up this weekend so I never did get to go shopping but I will soon and your Airwalk's seem like something I should try out next. :)

:iconlizjowen:
lizjowen Featured By Owner Nov 15, 2010  Hobbyist General Artist
Wowie, that's really good that they lasted over a year. My headphones only last a couple of months due to the same reason that yours broke >_<
Well I got mine from Sports Direct, so you could buy them from either online or a Sports Direct shop ^_^ I am in love with mine :love:
Reply
:icononyx-tigeress:
Onyx-Tigeress Featured By Owner Nov 10, 2010  Hobbyist General Artist
No, there well over a year old and finally gave out. The cord is slipping out from the jack itself so they need to be replaced.
But they have been my favorite pair I've had up to date. :)
And I may have to look about a pair of Airwalks. No one carries the headphones I had anymore, you can only buy them online, and I'll need another pair by the weekend.
So I might take a look around and see if I can find a pair of those. :aww:

Awh noes! How long have you had them for? Maybe you could take them back? Well I really like my headphones and the brand of them is Airwalk ^_^

As am I though my favorite pair have finally decided to fall apart.
I plan to try to get another pair, anything, sometime over the weekend.

There external headphones are, at least here, and their earbuds only run about $20 - $30 dollars on average.
And they're pretty cool and come in all kinds of great colors. :)
I'd really like another pair of those, now I'm just saving up.

Omigawsh Skullcandy is amazing! But incredibly expensive >_< A few of my friends have skullcandy headphones o_O
Aah righties. I think they look pretty ;D

Alrighty! I might just have to check those out.
The most recent brand I had were the Ink'd 2010 by SkullCandy.
They had awesome sound and tremendous bass but I didn't like the way the earpiece fit and the chord had a very stiff casing. :p

I know! I have a pair of headphones that's at least twelve years old and work better than a pair that's less than a year old. It's amazing how long those things can last.
Ooh, that must look cool. :D

:nod: Totally agree.
And I did, it's broken now. :( It worked for about eleven years or so, it's really no wonder it gave out, but that's what I plan to be my next big purchase.
:D And they really do create great splatters.

Exactly. I wouldn't have learnt anything if I didn't experiment ^_^
You have a light table? Zomg you're so lucky *___* Wish I had one >_<
Aah same same. That's why I don't really like it that much :/ They make cool splatter effects though ^_^
Reply
:icononyx-tigeress:
Onyx-Tigeress Featured By Owner Oct 18, 2010  Hobbyist General Artist
Well that's the only way you learn, experimenting and practicing.
And I know what you mean with the art supplies. :nod:
Neither do I. But it seems that whenever I shade or color anything traditional it ruins the sketch. That's why I'd like to have a miniature light table to duplicate my original sketches.
They give you a bit more control, but I'm just not good with anything that's majority water. I get it everywhere. :faint:

:iconlizjowen:
lizjowen Featured By Owner Oct 18, 2010  Hobbyist General Artist
Lawls same! I still have a school sweater that has acrylic on its sleeve :P
Well I think I might experiment more with my watercolour crayons first because I haven't really used them (D'oh >_<) And plus my mum would kill me if I bought more art materials :P
I love shading! I can never call a picture finished without it o_O
I can't really use watercolour... But I presume the crayons are much easier to use than paint ^_^

:icononyx-tigeress:
Onyx-Tigeress Featured By Owner Oct 17, 2010  Hobbyist General Artist
Yes, the colors are really easy to blend. But being semi (if not completely) permanent is a drag. I have clothes that are multicolored from acrylic paints. :p
Well I've never had the pleasure of working with the Castells but from what I've heard from people who have it's majority a personal preference. They both are about the same quality, Prismacolors might be a slight bit better, but just about the same.
Again, it's whats available to you and your preference.
I know, I hate trying to work with less than 72 shades of anything, particularly in mediums I can't mix or blend together.
And kudos to you for being able to work with anything watercolor. That's one of the mediums I can't work well with. ^^;

lizjowen Featured By Owner Oct 17, 2010  Hobbyist General Artist
Yesh, really really. I love using acrylics! Well, I did anyway. Because I found it was so much easier to blend colours together using acrylics o_O But I don't like how it's so hard to wash out... >_<
Oooh I've heard of Faber Castell... Which do you think is better: Faber Castell or Prismacolours? :)
Awh same same :P I only have a pack of 24 colours, and that's not enough for my work >_< But I also have a little pack of watercolour crayons ;D
Reply
:icononyx-tigeress:
Onyx-Tigeress Featured By Owner Oct 15, 2010  Hobbyist General Artist
Yeah, it is. :)
And really? Well I'm not the best painter either. I think it's primarily because I use acrylics and those can be hard to work with at times. I really enjoy it though, from time to time.
They're really great pencils and considered the best for artists. Any pencil with a soft lead (Faber-Castell is another great brand) is good for high quality work.
:giggle: I miss working with crayons. My biggest problem is I simply don't have enough colors. ;P

Oooh wowie, that's awesome! I fail at painting >_< I haven't had any art lessons before you see since I was... 14? So I'm really inexperienced in this :( I wish I knew how to paint >_<
That's a very good idea o_O I never even thought of that... Might just do it this year ;D Because I would really like to try them out ^_^
Well I really like using crayons because I am not so good with painting ^_^

Onyx-Tigeress Featured By Owner Oct 14, 2010  Hobbyist General Artist
They're a bit like painting. You layer them mainly but the colors come out close to what you get if you painted with oils. Really rich, deep colors. They don't bleed but they're incredibly hard to erase, almost like a permanent pencil. You can't really afford to mess up.
It does, but generally I can save and use my birthday/Christmas cash to get what I want or need.
I think I have a total of 180 pencils or so now. Many duplicates of course, but still a nice collection.

And they really are, again they're one of my favorite traditional mediums.
What's your favorite? :eager:
Reply
:iconlizjowen:
lizjowen Featured By Owner Oct 14, 2010  Hobbyist General Artist
Oh wowie, they sound amazingly awesome! Are they like painting? Because what I find annoying with paint is how they bleed and I can't really shade with them at all >_<
Awh dang, that kinda sucks... But I bet they're amazing to use :D
Reply
:icononyx-tigeress:
Onyx-Tigeress Featured By Owner Oct 10, 2010  Hobbyist General Artist
I love them. As far as my favorite traditional medium goes they tie for first. They've smooth textures, super rich colors and require a lot of practice to become skilled with them, but I love them.
Another drawback is their price. A set of 48 Prismacolors will cost you nearly $100 US.
But other than that they're great to work with. :D
