Hi all! ^_^

I don't often create new threads for my artwork, but I thought I would for this since I'm especially pleased with it. ^_^ I've always been a big fan of The Shawshank Redemption, and thought I'd draw some fanart of it since I've never seen any online and I wanted to draw a tribute to it. :D

I had to leave the computer on for four nights in a row to finish this XD

It was done on oekaki PaintBBS with an optical mouse. :) Hope you like!

Awwww, thanks, Iron Mankey! :D Oekaki is a Java applet which lets you paint ^_^ It has some cool tools such as watercolour! PC has an oekaki - the link is in the topmost toolbar, next to User CP and the other options. :)

... there are no words that can truly show how awesome this work is...

That does it. I'm getting an oekaki, install it on my personal server, and work on using it.

I think the word I want to use would probably get me banned x_x so I wont say it XD

But Bloody hell FG! This is your greatest work yet IMO, believe me, leaving the computer on for 4 nights in a row was worth this piece of art, its AMAZING, seriously...I really dont think I have seen anything like it before...I didnt even think it was possible to produce such a fantastic piece of art on Oekaki...I gotta get myself one of those optical mouse things XD

But for the love of all things sacred FG, this is bloody amazing, so realistic I would say you just bought the official art and posted it as your own XD But of course...I know your capable of many things FG.

This defiantly deserves a spot in the Poke Times newspaper XD, awesome work ^_-

*dies*

Holy cow! PLEASE MAKE A TUTORIAL. Please. =)
It looks, professional! You should do commisions.
It looks so realistic! You have every little detail! How do you do it?

Also, specifically what oekaki program did you use?
EDIT: Nevermind, I saw, PaintBBS...

Awwwwww, thanks! *hugs!* You're always so sweet! ^_^
I might make a tutorial for a Pokmon drawing on PaintBBS ^_^ A realism tutorial would be very time-consuming, but I could probably do a Pokmon or cel-shaded one! :)
It takes a lot of patience to do the details - I generally see the image as one big canvas rather than parts of clothes, face, background etc...it all merges together for me and that makes it easier to manage! ^_^

My mind absolutely refuses to believe that it's not a photo I'm looking at. XD It's that good.

You did an awesome job with that oekaki. ^_^
