Tsubasa: The Soap Opera Chronicles 1 by AileenRT Tsubasa: The Soap Opera Chronicles 1 by AileenRT
I made a version without the title written on it in my gallery. Clap

I painted this
, and titled it. And I redrew the face. (That happens a lot when turning a drawing into a painting.)
This one took a long time, mostly because I only worked on it as a hobby and every time I came back to it I pretty much would say "Why did I do it that way?" and change everything about it. I'm pretty happy with it, but next week if I look at it again I will say the same thing.

*Why The Title?*
I remember when Tsubasa: Reservoir Chronicle first came out, my sister and I were so excited! Every time a new issue came out we went to Barnes and Noble and purchased a copy. But as time went by we felt like it was more of a fanfiction than anything. Still, it has some beautiful moments and I'm a sucker for an adorable love story. Perhaps someday I'll give it a second read and reassess what I think of it. In the meantime, this piece of art surmises my feelings: Beautiful, but silly. ^_^

I'm thinking of doing more like this. Like, "Where everybody has an evil twin," or "Where a coma is the least of your problems," and so on. What do you, precious viewer, think of that?

*How did you make this?*
The drawing came straight out of the pages of the manga by CLAMP. To paint this I primarily used Corel Painter X and then I used Photoshop CS6 for texturing and color editing. (Because I tend to use dull colors on my own.) Oh! And I traced the wings in Flash CS6.

Painting by AileenRT, that's me.

See, I'm already thinking "Oh why did I make the texture so bold..." There. Changed.
