Diving by presstartoplay Diving by presstartoplay
Sorry for the inactivity guys. My computer hasn't had Internet connection for quite a long while. It feels so weird going back to using the keyboard, because I got so used to typing on the Wii U GamePad. xD

Anyway, this is my OC Natok, in his Watok form. Watoks are a unique species that resemble sea-serpents and fish.

I'm really proud of this pic. It took almost 14 hours to draw, so it's my most efforted pic ever. The colors look a bit weird on the PC screen. I think I'll adjust them later in Photoshop.

Anyway, I hope you like it. : ) Please tell me what you think.



EDIT: I adjusted the colors a bit.

EDIT 2: Changed his eye to its current design. Had to recreate the entire background just to do that, lol.

EDIT 3: Made some minor adjustments.

EDIT 128: Just a minimal change in the vibrance to make Natok blend together better with the background.

You really think that? Wow, I'm glad to hear that! This is definitely still my favorite pic I ever made, and I'm definitely proud of Natok and the Watok species.

I still can't believe how you got that texture-y look on his body.

I just used that third brush that looks like dots and dotted the body with white and black. It's actually really easy to do, but it looks really nice.

Cool. I'm really happy with its design. It's so much better than the old one. The old one looked so lifeless. You can also see his eye color better in the new design.

Eye shines no matter how realistic always add to the picture's quality. In his new style I can definitely see the iris better

That's very true. It makes the character look more alive. I don't know why I used to draw eye shines on the other side before. It looked so ugly that I had to make it very faint.

Eye shines on the other side? Like on the side where light isn't hitting?

presstartoplay Featured By Owner Jun 13, 2015
The other side of the pupils, like so that they're facing each other kinda instead of being on the opposite sides. Kinda hard to explain. I don't care about light sources with something as small as eye shines. I always place them the same on the same characters. I see them as a part of the design.

Oh I think I see. Both eyes, the shine should be in the same location. So, say, upper right on both instead of one upper right and one lower left

More like they're now one on the upper right side of the right eye, and one on the upper left side of the left instead of one on the upper right side and one smaller on the lower left side of the left eye and one upper left-I think you get it. This comment was really confusing to make, lol. I had to think a little.

Natok isn't a fish, lol. He's a Watok (a species I made up), and he's about the same size as a fully grown orca, I think.

lol, I don't think you'd be able to eat a Watok. They're very fast, and quite strong. And if Natok gets very angry, he can turn into a super form (a MUCH bigger and stronger version of himself)
