DAYBREAK SAKURA - Naruto by Eddy-Shinjuku DAYBREAK SAKURA - Naruto by Eddy-Shinjuku
Photoshop CS6: Airbrushing, Illustration, and Painting.
Working hours: 20+


Dedication to a good friend, :iconiza-nagi:

:bulletgreen: Made fair use of the 'golden spiral' to give flow and dynamism to the composition, here is the layout: sta.sh/023i1sh4w6y0
:bulletgreen: As a self taught 'hobbyist', I'm always in the quest for different styles; I'm still experimenting and literally figuring out my brand of manga style, here I leaning more towards airbrushing. Hopefully another year or two the goal is achieve.
:bulletgreen: This artwork is part of my long going realism anime/manga project. As long as you Watch+ my profile, more of these realism anime art are to come in the future.

Very beautiful Eddy-Shinjuku! The execution was carefully planned out, the colors are lovely and so realistic. The sakura petals in the background are also a nice finishing touch. The shadows and backlights on the skin, hair and clothes are impeccable and close to real life. Draw more fanarts!

That's the best I can bring out from her dolt-ness, she was pretty expressive pre-shippuden; I figured as an adult she lost all sense of expression and becomes this dangerously nonchalant looking ninja haha ;p

Thanks for the fav! :iconchuuplz:
If you already have noticed, I have a hard time figuring the right expression for her; putting a little smirk will render her a tad malevolent and out-of-character while making her looking 'worried' doesn't suit the depiction where she most likely a deadly ninja sporting that Akatsuki cloak infiltrating their base ^^;

Things I love about this:
1.  The outfit
2.  The pose
3.  The way Sakura's face looks.
4.  The colors

Things I hate about this:
1.  That I can't buy a copy of it and put it on my wall.

You truly have great compositions to your work. I tried to click on the link you have to the "golden spiral" layout, but it didn't lead to anywhere. Is it the same thing as the fibonacci spiral?

Eddy-Shinjuku Featured By Owner Nov 1, 2013  Professional Digital Artist
Much apologise for that, I've updated the link: sta.sh/023i1sh4w6y0
I'm truly indebted to the fibonacci spiral a.k.a golden spiral, here are more examples of ow I implement in in my other works:
 
 

The last two is quite interesting, they both have a similar pose but ultimately the flow of the artwork determines the composition. The left is leaning towards the diminishing of the spiral and the right leans away from it. So it's not sole of the pose, but the overall 'arrangements' of every elements in the frame. 

The spiral can even change the whole dynamics of the perspective, for example here the view/frame makes the composition conforms to the flow, even for a portrait:

To-Ka-Ro Featured By Owner Nov 8, 2013  Professional General Artist
Also, do you stretch the spiral for different canvas sizes?

:iconto-ka-ro:
To-Ka-Ro Featured By Owner Nov 1, 2013  Professional General Artist
No problem, that kind of thing happens. And thank-you for the response :)

I love how you use the subject's anatomy (especially the arc of the spine-SO interesting) , perspective, angle, and combined visual elements to form the composition. Just absolute brilliance!

I usually use the rule of thirds and try not to get main elements/subjects in the center box.
However, I think artists who use the spiral tend to have better flow and stronger composition to their work. I would definitely like to try implementing it into more into my own works . My composition is lacking; I think the spiral will also help me more with negative/positive space balance and with background concept.

So when you begin a sketch/thumbnail , do you draw the spiral at the beginning as a sort of base? Is it maybe more of an afterthought used during later revision/editing?

(Also, have you thought about making tutorials? I've read some of your other comments about your art on here and it's incredible how much content/thought goes into your process)

I read this also awhile ago and found it very interesting jakegarn.com/the-rule-of-third…. (The writer is a photographer on dA by the same name).
