Rendez vous by smilingStone Rendez vous by smilingStone
Gosh it's good to see I can still draw things that are not rainbows and cutesy baby animals, I'm getting artblock from my internship.

Anyways, something I've mostly done during livestreams, so if you want to see my non-methodical process here it is: [link]
(you even get to see pr0n and gay shit from time to time when I check my tumblr dashboard).

Otherwise... how does this look? Is it too dark? not contrasted enough? D:

I think I'll draw more and more either black and white or monochromatic sketches, it's good practice to learn how to balance contrast. I have some trouble doing that.

I love the lighting, it looks perfect. :love: The dark space on the right really gives is a lot of atmosphere, like they're in a restaurant by themselves.

Thank you! <3
Well that's sort of how you feel when you're with the thing or the person you love the most isn't it? :)
Looks great. I like how the image isn't centered. Get the attention better.

Wow, I like it! I think the contrast is just right :D If I were to nitpick I would say that maybe the ladies shoulder should be smoothed out just a little more, the brush strokes give just a little to much texture there, otherwise a wonderful painting!

I probably won't edit it after all this time, but I need to be more careful over the skin areas when working with kind of "rough" strokes, I'll remember it ;)
I love this artwork :)
And I like how much darkness there is...the little light shows the real focus here.
I love the character design, the idea and the guy's hair :D

Well thank you very much for these nice words! I'm glad it strikes you this way :heart:

Classe ! La fille est vraiment cool ! Même s'il y aurait certaines choses à revoir au niveau des valeurs, mais c'est le principe d'un sketch ;)

Merci :)
Ah! Certainement! C'est loin d'être parfait, même deux trois jours après il y a des erreurs qui commencent à être visibles... par contre pour les valeurs je pense avoir un problème de calibrage, certains me disent que c'est trop clair, d'autre trop noir... et de mon côté il est excessivement sombre à l'écran DA mais un peu trop clair sur photoshop T^T
