Paradise Beach! by PiePiyo
Paradise Beach!
i decided i would have some fun and draw what is hopefully everybody in TheOC-pageantOfDA who was assigned to paradise beach playing volleyball! because i just love to torture myself with more research than should be put into things

i hope i didn't miss anybody! characters are:

StareyedInLA's Meg
savagelucy42's Bubblegum
bunnychan13's Angel
POKOD's 8bit
ObsidianPyre's Rai
Oiiou's Hana

my Delphi
Raika-chan's Valerie
itsasooz's Hakelda
HannahFrank92's Rowan
Gwennafran's Nela
LadyLoriel's Hero

my Slate
Turn 2- Slate the Avatar by PiePiyo
Turn 2- Slate the Avatar
no, wait! i've got it--!

the sand back where slate lives isn't exactly stable enough to hold a volleyball net, not to mention the wind. so what better summer activity than beach volleyball, round robin style? of course, poor slate is terrible at it. the others wind up making him the referee instead.

anyway, for his outfit i went with his base colors -pink and blue- again. i was originally doing full hawaiian pattern shirt, but decided it looked better with flowers just at the bottom. and those sunglasses are adorable- and useful, when you're looking into the sunset during a volleyball game!

i just had to go the hard route, for both of my entries, didn't i? i've never drawn a sunset scene, so i struggled with basically everything that wasn't lines and base colors. choosing sunset colors? who fucking knows. choosing shadow colors? and highlighting technique? wild guess until you get it right. ambient glow? go crazy. and in the end, half the layers i drew are turned off and some of the ones that remain are at like <50%. 

for TheOC-pageantOfDA's Holidays! round, which is round two.
Turn 2- 'William' Delphi by PiePiyo
Turn 2- 'William' Delphi
Take THAT!

holy damn this was fun. i've never drawn water, i don't think, and if i have it's definitely been a while. all that water took 3 on and off days, geez.
getting a 'bright sunlight' kind of effect was a fun experiment. a lot of my drawings are usually in darker environments and finding the right colors for the shadows and highlights was a challenge, that's for sure.

delphi's friend here is siren. they've been best friends for... probably hundreds of years? they're complete opposites in personality; delphi's shy and kind of conservative and siren's really... out there. reflected in their swimsuit choice, of course.

(swimwear designs here:…)

for TheOC-pageantOfDA's holidays! round, which is round two.
R4 Sera by PiePiyo
R4 Sera
like the calm at the ocean floor...

in contrast to alexa, whose piece was very light and floaty, sera's is very dark and floaty. lots of layers here, the lineart has 8 layers just for the color. the shading took a lot of time but was a lot of fun.
