Here are a few of my favourite things (no raindrops on roses but there are birds and Miles Edgeworth and things)
These are all in chronological order, the top of the list is the oldest picture I'm gonna post, and the bottom is the most recent.
I'll put a description with each, too, which is copypasta'd from my website's gallery (the link to said website being in my sig).

~Click each to enlarge~
Image
A vector influenced by mofaha, an artist I know from a messageboard.
This is one of my favourite vectors.

Image
I did the darker areas in a layer on top and coloured beneath them with simpler, block colours.
This is one of my favourite vectors so far.

Image
Kate is a girl I know from school.
She has fantastic hair. Look.
Look at her hair.

Image
After the simpler style I used on Kate's vector, I went into more detail with the black layer on this vector of Cherry. I also tried out shading techniques and I'm very, very happy with this.

Image
My friend Pete made the mistake of sending me his prom photos.
I wasn't all nasty, though. I removed a spot from his girlfriend's boob!

Image
Another vector of my friend Athena.
This one took me fourteen and a half hours. D:

Image
I call this a Beat because it's a BEar crossed with a bAT.
I could have called it a Baear but I don't know how to say Baear.

Image
A vector of my friend's girlfriend, Charlotte.
Awesome sunglasses :D

Image
One of my favourite Pokémon.
I digital painted this with my Intuos3 tablet.
It shows Gardevoir in mid-teleportation, pushing out of the 'psychic world' through a dimension-window.

Image
This is an actual collagraph plate I made for printing with.
The golden colour is from the shellac varnish I used to preserve the lumps and bumps of the textured plate.
There is indeed a larger version of the image (by that I mean larger than to 1000px width image you can find by clicking the thumbnail).
http://www.clansoul.com/traditional/edgeyplate.jpg

Image
The third, final and most awesome piece of a tryptich (other images here and here).
This is all done in photoshop based on a tiny thumbnail sketch I drew in my sketchbook.
I scribbled on a layer over the top of it and ended up with this.
Story here:

Image
My stepsister "introduced" me to this lovely person, Sophy.
She is very short.
On the left is an accurate representation of her height (She's leaning against a lamppost).

Thanks for looking and I hope you enjoyed my artworkness!

You have some lovely pieces; but perhaps this would be better placed in the Graphics Showcase?

Thanks ^_^

I was going to put it there but not all of it's computer generated, and I figured that seems to be more banners and sprites and things. This is more misc. really, so I thought it was more appropriate for here.

Fair enough.

Oh, I forgot to mention my favorites: the first vector of Kate, and the vectors of Athena and Charlotte.

I'm an art student myself, but I haven't gotten to computer art yet.

Thankyou!~
Computers are pretty good, I prefer it to hand drawn stuff.
When I'm not bluescreening all over the place, that is.
Getting a new pc soon though!!

I have the vector of Athena up on my wall :D
Actually I have two vectors of Athena on my wall, and a sketch.

I see Katie was thinking along the same lines as me. I was actually intending to move the thread until I got to your collagraph picture. :D And, although most of the work posted in the graphics forum does consist of banners and stuff, that's only because it's what the majority of our graphic artists like to create. But there are other things in there, such as digital painting and photomanipulation, both of which I see you do. :)

But enough of the explanatory stuff. I really love your creations! I don't know that I can pick out any individual favourites because so many of them are really impressive.

Of your vectors, the Cherry and Athena ones are both awesome, and Charlotte's sunglasses are amazing! I'm very impressed by the way you've managed to convey the shiny texture. They really do look like they're made out of glass. And the kiss picture is really effective in its simplicity.

I also really like the bird one. I love the detail in the feathers.

Oh, and I love your Edgworth sig! :D

Thanks.
The Edgeworth in my sig is my favourite of the actual prints I took from that plate.
I did quite a few birds, I used no curves - only straight lines. It was a nice contrast from the smooth feathers birds have, and I thought it was a pretty interesting experiment.
I liked the first one I did (though I ended up using a few curves in it, I wasn't as strict with myself in this one)
Image
and I did more after that.
<3 the pen tool.

*whispers* he's doing a vector of me too...well he was lol

Just saying :D

You're too good at this stuff and it makes me feel bad...I always wanted to learn how to do computer art and stuff...I just need photoshop and a tablet :)

Oh, and by the way my favourite one is the one of Edgey :) though I think you could do a L vector ;) just a hint!

Heheh yes, indeed.
For anyone who wants to see, you can find the one of Hayley here.
I keep meaning to finish it.

As for L, I've got a part-done L digital painting here.

It was so tedious T_T
I did one vector that took me two months to complete and it ended up looking just like a photo. I haven't finished many since.
I wish I could get back into it :/

That one of Hayley looks brilliant, even as it stands. Crystal remarked in someone else's thread that she often prefers the works in progress, and I think that could be said here too. I'm sure if you ever finish it, it will look really lovely, but that simple lineart that you have so far looks gorgeous in its own right.

And the L one looks like it would be pretty impressive if you were to complete it. I bet it would be really popular too. We have several L fans here (including me :p).

Thanks :D
If you change the link to hayley3 instead of hayley2 you can see the one where I started to put colour on it.
It's eventually going to be blonde, obviously.

As for L, anybody who dislikes him is silly ;]

I love vector art. LOVE it.. and I hate that I suck at it.

I love Athena most. Awesome.



[align=center]Image
Deep in the meadow,
Under the willow,
A bed of grass,
A soft green pillow,
Lay down your head,
And close your sleepy eyes,
And when again they open,
The sun will rise,
Here it\'s safe,
Here it\'s warm,
Here the daisies guard you from every harm,
Here your dreams are sweet and tomorrow brings them true,
Here is the place where I love you.

I'm gonna post this Shinx I made for Crystal.
Image
She's lucky I was in the mood, I'd have asked for money else. ;D
At least that way I'd either not have to do it, or be a little richer.

I went to the zoo today and it was great.
Here are some photos.
I will update this with more but these were my favourites

http://www.clansoul.com/hostedimages/zoo/starling1.jpg
The first one is how I found it, then it hopped onto the branch.

Bear in mind that I was so close, I had to use macro for most of those photos :3
I stroked it and it pecked me and I stroked it again

I think my favorites are the second and the last one. They kind of give a sense of motion that some of the others don't.

Yeah, they're the best ones.
Then the one with its mouth open.
I'd have deleted the others but I didn't have the heart.
Anyway, here's the full update:

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image
I took this because some woman walked by, pointing them out to her husband, asking "What are they?", to which he replied "Ostriches."

Image

Image
Lemur family portrait :D

Image
Then the typical 'mess up' photo you always get after!

Image
My sister poked the poor prairie dog with a stick. When I told her it was a prairie dog, she thought it was an actual dog that goes woof.

Image

Image
Due to lack of Giraffes, Zebras are the best animals in the zoo (besides the Bali bird, which you will soon see)

Image

Image

Image

Image
I tried to get both sides of the lion. I spent ages at the enclosure waiting for it to do something cat-like...

Image
And something lion-like. It was roaring :D

Image
These are my sister's favourites.

Image

Image
Can you see the animal?
