Odd transitions by Pinlin Odd transitions by Pinlin
Lately I got bored from drawing simple backgrounds, so doing something more detailed this time. Legit excuse :icondignitylaughplz:
The concept is inspired by the weird transitions in my dreams. For example, last time I had a 'dream' about being stuck in a building at floor 79.
There was a bomb that would be exploding soon, everyone panicked. I used the stairs to get out and... went happily to shopping after. Happy ending! \( ̄u ̄)/

This character is my OC Yokishi. I designed this outfit last year and almost forgotten it lol. When I looked back I thought, hey it doesn't look that bad.

Why do I think of Belarus when I see this?I think it's the dress' coloration. Is coloration a word? I guess it is now.

IT DOESN'T HAVE A CAT IN IT, 0/10 DO IT AGAIN, HORRIBLE.

Just kidding, obviously. Your sense of lighting is lovely, the tone of the picture makes sense, your perspective is on point, and the character has great gesture. My only legitimate complaint is that I feel her left eye is too high up on her face, due to the juxtaposition against the jaw. Other than that, I love your work here - 9.9/10.

Where do I have to put a cat though :iconmierdaplz:

I had some trouble drawing the face/jawline and right now it still looks weird to me.
Thanks for the advice, I'll keep this on mind when drawing from this perspective.

I really like the elegant feel you were going for in this picture. I like the design for the room(even though it's falling part XD) And Yokishi's outfit and expression. Also, the flying letters and the petals contribute to the motion you are trying to convey in the artwork. A true "transition." :)

A combination of elegance and falling appart... your description made me laugh XD
I have  no idea how to describe her expression, I'm glad that the art makes up for my words lolz.
Thank you so much, I'm glad that you like my work!

In terms of her expression, it looks likes she detecting something ominous. Like she's stressed or saddened by something that might of happened or is happening, but is trying to hide it or hope it's not so. I kinda got that from how instead of looking at the crumbling wall in front of her, she's looking upwards, like trying to see something else rather than face reality. Otherwise her expression is very enigmatic, but her eyes give her away. Perhaps I'm just looking too deep into it though.=P (Razz)

This looks great. Love the detailed background. :) 
You did a fantastic job on Yokishi, and I love her expression.
I also like how there are flower petals floating around. :) And.. are those envelopes with wings?! X3 Very interesting.
It also looks like the wall is breaking apart, which is a very nice touch I think.

Thank you so much! Those are the tiny details, I'm glad that
they still caught your eye xD
Actually I wanted to make the transition smoother by breaking
the wall, in the end it didn't contribute much to it heh-

AHHHHHHHH!!!! 
waahhh amazziinggg!!! and your women are becoming more elegant than cute *//A\\* I loove Yoshiki's design hggfnfgn so pretty!! And you made something really cool out of your dream! I fell in love with this piece as soon as I saw the thumbnail.
Her pose, dress and her expression is so eye chatching I really adore it! And the bg is really cool too.
I esp. like the fact that you didn't shaded it so much I think it's more appealing this way /)ww(\
AND AHH I LOVE THOSE FLYING LETTERS AND PETALS SO CUUUTE DFGÖKdfg it gives the pictures even more dept imoo pofjgfdnlg!! 
aNDD AHH I loved how you shaded yoshiki too it looks so soft yet "hard" (idk how to describe lol) 
JDFKG DFG I JUST LOVE EVERYTHING ABOUT THIS PIC HHNDFGNFG ;;^;; 
felt like I wrote a lot sorryy hufhg

Don't worry, I love to read those long reviews /) w (\
It's like I'm developing 2 styles: cute or elegant. I like both so won't stop drawing the other xD
I don't know why I never used her old outfit. Sometimes, when you dig up some old stuff, 
you might find something interesting to re-use. 

When working on this drawing, I thought the thumbnail looks different than the bigger size.
For this one I used nothing else than gradients for the bg. No hard edges or strong lighting, 
just for change. The petals are supposed to transform into letters like the transition in the middle
but it was hard to draw that. Not that this detail matters a lot :iconmingplz:
Your description sounds so funny "so soft yet hard" LOL. Despite using soft shade, the character
looks quite sharp. Probably because of the contrast and color difference compared to the background.
Aww thank you, my loli-chan!

Ahahaha, dreams are weird. I should know, I remember 90% of the dreams I have.

 Once, I had a dream about space, chocolate milk, and government budget cuts on important matters. Yeah... Turned it into a story about an average girl, who accidentally is chosen by a sentient spaceship. By being chosen by this spaceship she must go and train into space and train with a few other chosen children to fight in a galactic war. Alll the children despise her. The only one that likes her is the spaceship. Eventually all the children refuse to go to war, and leave Kellie Bell to pilot the huge sentient spaceship (supposed to be piloted by thirteen people) by herself. Also leaving her to represent all of humanity in the Earth's first galactic war.

The chocolate milk is mixed with a special ingredient, so that when drunk it can allow telepathy, even between humans and aliens. The mind's language is the same. Being around  the tongue's language confuses the mind or tricks the body into beleiving that the mind's language is different.

I also do and mostly they are rather funny than scary |D

Lol that's a rare combination of elements in your dream. 
If a chocolate milk like that excists... would be awesome.
Your summary sounds like an original novel. If it was
written, I'd love to read xD

It's an odd combination, but not the weirdest I've had. Gotta love dreams.

If chocolate milk can grant telepathy, it would have it's downsides. Imagine the fights caused due to people's inner thoughts. XD

I'm always looking for beta readers to give feedback, if you'd like to read what I have so far. :)

Lolz you surely catch up quickly. I'm trying to add more dynamic and detail to my art
and it usually results in a slight style change XD" I hope you still like this though.
Despite everything I try, my sense of colors always stay the same haha.

I see I see xD the change of style is bound to come when you change up other things in your drawings huh? I really like it though! It's different from your other drawings but it's really pretty! In a slightly different way from your other styles! I guess this one makes the drawing embrace a more serious and yet calming almost enigmatic feeling. Am I even making sense? Lol but anyways! The point is that I really love it!!! <333
