The Grass is Greener by bluessence The Grass is Greener by bluessence
This is a personal piece that I've been working on for the last 2 weeks. Very glad to be done with it, I got a little stressed out towards the end because it was coming along slowly.

I started with some black and white rendering over a very rough scan in Painter and then moved to photoshop for the coloring process. Quite a few new challenges for myself and i feel that overall the outcome is satisfying.

Enjoy, I will have prints of this soon!

It's been months since I seriously browsed dA and to come back to this reminds me of what I've been missing.

Your colors are soft, muted and they work together beautifully. Even though it's subtle, the background building-scape is as detailed and nice as the main characters.

Well done. :clap:

She has red shoes. Are you sure she isn't Dorothy from "The Wizzard of Oz"? And the robo is The Tin Man?

Actually the shoes were purple, but the highlights do kinda make em look red I suppose ^_^ This does have a very Oz like vibe going though.
