In a Moment of Desperation by Coronadofwb In a Moment of Desperation by Coronadofwb
***Please take the time to full view the work as respect to the artists time it took to do the art. Thank you :)***

At long last, this is an illustrated scene, done for the lovely ~JennPhantom. Doing this picture took up 3 months of my life, from sketch to finally having it finished early this morning, and I respected Jenn's and ~DannyPhantomAddict's decision for me to upload it to dA. I wouldn't have otherwise.

A little message for the piece in general, this is a scene Jenn wanted me to illustrate, and I lose track of how long ago it was that she wanted me to do this. It had to have been either May of June of last year, but I agreed to do it. Because of college it took me this long to get through with it, as I was still working on late trades and requests over the summer. This is a scene to go with the season 4 scripts she's writing. Visit her page ~JennPhantom for more information about the scripts. This is simply just a scene illustration, and even I can't tell you exactly what's going on, like how did things end up the way they did, but I'm sure you get the general point about it anyway ;)

This pic would of not taken quite as long if I hadn't screwed up my technique's for even doing it. I am probably the least happy with how Dan came out, as I was trying to work with a little bit of perspective with him but he looks as flat as can be, so proportions of off in many ways just because of that. My other greatest mistake was making the picture so large. It made it nearly impossible to work with decent timing. I have been struggling to get my line art as strong and as thick as I can so it can be more like the actual style of the show. The background speaks for itself. A bit of honesty, I needed references for the background quite badly. I am not very familiar with doing backgrounds, that is why I do such backgrounds on "practice" pics so it can help me learn the style. I learn a little more about it every time I do a such a pic. Reference is not to be confused with "copying" :) The background style seems to change with each and every episode of Danny Phantom which can be quite confusing. The style is very interesting. It's not perspective perfect and things are very much out of line, but it it's all meant to be fun, and I enjoy that about the style very much. You get to mess up on purpose ;) The backgrounds are not very complicated at all, just incredibly tedious sometimes, as simple as they really look.

The those that took the time to view, thank you and I hope you find this picture enjoyable to view :D! This is the largest picture I've ever done and about 80 hours were spent in photoshop on it, but that was my mistake, and working on a slow computer that can hardly work photoshop to begin with. :D;

Download for a larger version of the pic as well :)

Also a note to those curious about me taking requests, due to the disrespect my art has received as well as the disrespect to me as an artist, all trades and requests are now only available for good friends from now on. Thank you :)

EDIT: I've removed the watermark from this image as I'm not too terribly concerned about theft from it and would like my viewers to see it in as high of a quality as possible, so PLEASE do not force me to put a watermark on this again :)

Lol, I got linked to this from TV Tropes. It was talking about how Dark Danny is more likely to do this to his fangirls than anything they'd want to do with him.

I recommend looking around for tutorials. The first thing I learned how to use in photoshop was the pen tool, which I learned from a tutorial, and then I went on from there, letting my curiosity guide me through the many possibilities of the program :)

Perhaps you can find some in your native language? Or maybe like me, you learn by pictures. I have a language block, and don't understand most of what I read, so I just follow the pictural examples and understand the images the best I can and go from there. Perhaps something like that could help you out if you struggle to find tutorials in your best language (:

This one in particular took a very long time. This one took me over 80 hours to do over a period of 2 and half months, and the only reason it took that long was my computer was about to kaput, so after all of that work it was just frustrating to have that happen >_<

Oh, wow. This is absolutely brilliant. How on earth do you manage to draw so well--your skills are clearly not from THIS planet.
Amazing. Fantastic. I need to go look up synonyms for this and just list them.

...So yeah, a-maz-ing job! I am officially jealous of your talent.

I wouldn't say that, as you're quite the talented artist yourself! It took me quite some time to be acquaint myself with the style enough to be able to do this, as the earlier art in my gallery shows ;) But I do appreciate the lovely compliment :heart: Thank you!

things tend to swirl when ever ther is a ball of light wether it is the ectoplasm ball or the clouds around the moon. it looks cool. i reallly wouldn't have noticed any flws but i went back and looked at it about 10 times and i have to say they are minor when looking at this masterpeice as a whole. great job! this is one of the best pictures i have seen.

Yeah, I did everyone a favor and pointed out the flaws myself XD Though it has been quite some time since I've made this public. As of now I've been experimenting with digital art for 5 years, but still consider myself a beginner. Every picture I do, I do differently, looking for better ways, more efficient ways, easier ways, and ways to really emphasize the picture in ways you could only do with digital art. I've still got a long road ahead of me, but I look forward to what I'll be able to do all of the time ^_^ Thank you for the wonderful comment! I never could have imagined the publicity this picture ended up getting and was astonished at the response. Any attention my images get always come as a surprise ^_^ :heart:
