Magic of love by Artgerm Magic of love by Artgerm
Ok, here is another collab work me and Kai ukitakumuki during he internship with me. It is done for a Musical/Magic Show as the theme image for the show - Magic of Love.

The musical is about a magician father and daugther, which the father devoted all of his time in chasing fame and recognition, neglecting the love of the daughter. Worst still, fearing his daughter may outshine him on the stage. Of cos it is a happy ending eventually. :)

Anyway, I've posted 2 initial paintings together with the final one, to show how we came to the final rendition. The 2 initial drawings are done by Kai solely (left is the first draft, right is the second draft). I took over only after the client approved the second draft. Basically I just made some refinements here and there, mainly the faces.

Again, it is a fun experience as we learn from each other. :)

That's amazing! The tear running down her cheek is a great focal point.

Wonderful!!!! A great piece of fine art you have here! It's very symbolic too, in my mind it looks like the woman is giving her heart out to him, but all he cares about is fame and fortune! Love it, tis beautiful

I think I like the colors more in the first draft, I probably would have chosen that one, but the final image came out beautifully nonetheless!

very nice...
but i do prefer the color scheme of the upper left piece.. it's more contrasty.. dark but still warm. just a thought.
:aww:

great job.

the colors of his first background were so much more striking then any of the others
u might have refined the faces but any changes u made to it besides that only detracted from the overall outcome

I've really come to admire your work. It's so full of detail, and your lighting techniques are great. It's also fun seeing how you manage to collaborate with other artists and lean from them. Just watching in a great experience.

On a side note, I like Kai's first draft. I like the dramatic lighting he used, though some of the background is a bit distracting. It still looks great, though. I payed him a visit on DA and added him to my watches as well.

Anywho, I really enjoy your work. I never grow tired of it. ^__^

love the texture on the fabric. I like the background of the first sketch better though. More magical. You made the faces so beautiful.

ps. the girl's shoulder bothers me a little. it seems one side is a lot longer than the other..

It looks beautiful. Personally, I prefer the first draft on the top left, but that's because I'm a big fan of edgy styles, and I love the texture that it has. The smoothness of the final piece is still something to see though. Wonderful job, to the both of you. :)

Final version looks really nice, good changes. I think the girl's emotions and innocence is expressed really well, as well as the father's ambitious nature shown by the eyes and mouth especially, with sole focus on the award. Love that magic orb too. Hope to see more stuff from you two in the future.

very very cool pic, nice composition, great pose, amazing job on the colors, whoa!

There's only one thing bothering me with this drawing, the girl's boobs dont seem to match her position. Her boobs are facing us but the girl is slightly turned to right.. so it doesn't really make sense.

Everything thing else is done amazingly! great job!! :D
