This is the last bit of post-processing for the Garden Scene painting posted here... [link] ...which is the last segment of the @CameliaGirls OP sequence as can be previewed here: [link]

The scene features Kana and Miharu sleeping peacefully over a blanket under the shade of a tree. This image, along with the Beach Scenes and the Character Intros, was originally outsourced to save on time -- but due to a number of reasons, I eventually had to pull the commission and retake this painting under my wing.

Although primarily worked on in MyPaint, this last segment was completed in GIMP due to the requirement for image editing and light rendering capabilities. The goals were three fold...

---

1) enhance the tree shading over Miharu and Kana.

2) increase the overall brightness and contrast of the image at large to blend better with the Anime setting while still retaining some faux photo-realistic elements. This will likely be the doctrine for the revised watercolour backgrounds from now on.

3) Add a brilliant light source for greater picture warmth -- while perfectly possible to do this in MyPaint, it's easier to accomplish this with GIMP's Gradient Flare filter.

---

This final post-processing now concludes work on this image. While not perfect, it's good enough for the OP sequence it's intended for (it will require this panoramic shot above, plus a close-up shot for a brief 2 second pan). The end of the OP sequence is now looking closer than ever. :)

Hey there. ^^

My gawds, did that take a while... about 3 weeks or so...

Ironically, I wasn't even supposed to paint this... I had commissioned some friends to make this for the opening sequence of my game (now former game, I suppose...). Unfortunately they didn't deliver, so since time was running out I just went ahead and painted it myself.

Maybe went a little overboard with the detail, but if you like it I reckon it was worth it. ^^b

Thanks. Though ironically, now that we're talking about commissions and customer service, originally I was not supposed to draw this one . Another commissionee was supposed to work on this, while I took care of general film direction of the OP video.

Sadly, she couldn't deliver all the goods, so I basically had to spend 3 weeks to do her work for her. I think I did a much better job, but that's not the point -- the point is I would gladly have traded the fame of creating this piece in return for some kind, reliable, responsible help. >.>

You will do a tutorial teaching us mere mortals the secret behind dappled tree-shading someday, won't you? D:

C-quel Featured By Owner Apr 14, 2011  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
Probably not a chance, since I spent all my develpment time drawing this monstrosity, and now I'm way behind s'hedule again.

But the only real secret is "improv". ;)

Didn't really now how they do it in anime studios, but to improvise a solution, I...

------

1) made a separate layer on top of the girls

2) grabbed a nice foliage brush which has a lot of gaps and just draw the hell over it using black paint

3) used the same foliage brush with the eraser, and cut up places that didn't have enough holes in them e.g., their face)

4) reduced the opacity of the layer to about half

5) changed the blending mode to something that softens up the shading while colourizing it a bit (Grain Merge in this case)

------

And voila! You get something that's kinda-sorta like tree-shading. ;)

Holy shit-burgers C-kun, this is amazing! O8
The final product surely does not disappoint, good job! The colors alone are fantastic, not to mention the lighting effect and all… very, very well done!
This version is much brighter and friendlier than the original, too, which I think fits better with the rest of the OP.

No can wait for the finished OPPPPPPPP ;w;

Well this definitely was the longest painting I've ever worked with before, so happy the results didn't disappoint y'all. ^-^

And yeah, that was disaster-averted with the colours -- I was so engrossed painting the scene based on how it should look naturally, I kinda forgot it had to be bright and cheery. ^__^;

Ahaha, so I read… I completely understand, though, I've done similar things myself. -w- You get carried away with something and realize you've gone entirely off the mark… like writing essays…
/should be writing on OTL/
But it looks nice, you saved this painting indeed. :3

Ah the palm? Yeah, it's a bit strange given I used a mostly western model for the garden. But it's the kind of thing you'd see in a more tropical environment. ^^

Well, in any event, thanks to the showy light display, it's pretty much masked. ^__^
