BAS Challenge Wk 6: Le-Wahi Overlook by ElisitaGayle
BAS Challenge Wk 6: Le-Wahi Overlook
Over the summer on a hiking trip in the Adirondack Mountains, the summit of our destination at Chimney Mountain provided the perfect picturesque vista of what I always imagined Le-Wahi to be. I grabbed my camera and quickly took a picture for the sole purpose of painting this exact image…all I needed was an excuse to do it! I'm not a painter, so this is a really shitty drawing that tells you how much I do not understand A) Paint B) Atmospheric Perspective 3) Pretty much anything.

Painted with OpenCanvas4.5, Photoshop CS6, and a lot of yelling.

Oh thank you so much for the kind words! We had a lot of fun making it and we're probably going to collab again in the future :)

How did you find it if you don't have a tumblr, haha

Of course! Your art is wonderful (and anatomically correct which delights me and I am highly envious of)

I hope you'll join us as part of the group too :)

Nice to see you on the DA, after seeing your stuff floating around tumblr and BZP :)

I try to keep things proportional, but I do intend to exaggerate when I feel it's okay. It's a common thing I find that most artists are afraid to explore in bionicle characterization.

I could have sworn I joined it a long time ago.

Haha of course! I've been on dA since 2006. I was hoping I didn't need to spread around to other sites but you have to get with the times y'know?

I'm so terribly bad at proportions, it almost looks like I'm exaggerating. I'm working really hard at getting better, though I guess because I started with manga style and tried so hard to get out of it, I'm so scared of exaggerating because I try to be as...cartoony realistic as possible.

No worries.

What is the 21st century!?

Okay, sorry to bother you, but since you're the only admin left you're the only person who can answer this.  The posted rules for BioGijinka say that anyone can join.  Two years ago, I tried to join, but my request expired from lack of activity.  Just recently, I tried again, knowing that even though Nikira12 was gone, you were back, which I took as a sign of activity in the group.  However, my request expired again.  Did I do something to make you guys mad?  If so, I'm sorry, and what did I do?

Oh, no, you're not bothering me!

I'm sorry about that,  it had nothing to do with you. I'm not active on that group because frankly I forget about it, especially since Nikira has left. If you want to rejoin, I'll make sure to see to it that you're accepted now that I'm aware of the issue. 

But, I run a Bionicle club :iconunity-duty-destiny: which I am really active on and has a lot of activity in general, so I also encourage you to join and submit your work there :)

Sorry again!
