ok I don't normally do this but I HAVE to get this off my chest

as of late I have been seeing a certain little effect get overused like mad
Refer to this picture for a quick message:
Jirachi Drawing in 2015 by Hellknight10
(click image for full effect)

now don't get me wrong, this effect is pretty awesome when used correctly. When people put it on the whole picture or make it too prominent that it makes your eyes hurt when you try to focus on the image, that's what bothers me.
People are beginning to think that filters and effects make art, but that's not true, they only enhance art. I personally like the fact that it colors lines to some degree and it adds a little pizazz to the image, but relying on it to color my lines or to just add something to a lazy drawing is not cool. No, the usage of this effect does not affect my life enough for me to go and try to call out artists or anything, I'm just expressing my thoughts on something that just doesn't float my boat and worries me that newer artists will begin to rely on this particular effect for everything, I mean I see this everywhere on Tumblr, here and even Pixiv. I think it's worse when perfectly good artist with a perfectly good picture use this on an image that doesn't need it and it just ruins it.

In the hands of more veteran artists with proper images, this effect works wonders:
Sexy DJ sona (nude censored) by sakimichan The big cat movie by observerz

long story short, I found something that bothers me a little and made an image for twitter/tumblr (which I will post there soon) and now I'm just explaining it
I do not hate this effect, hate is a strong word, in fact I don't even dislike it. I don't like the abuse of it, maybe I'm just getting old and that's just another fad that's passing me by

at any rate, I just wanted to get this off my chest

PS - I do use it myself but try not to go mad with it
PPS - I'll find any reason to draw Jirachi it seems

My name is Pedro A. Machuca
I currently hold an AAS in Art and I hope I can go back and get my bachelor's degree so that I may become an arts educator.

Though my work here is mostly digital, I do enjoy working traditionally but it is very difficult to financially maintain a working routine with traditional art

I hope you enjoy my work here even though it is mostly fan art in here (I do enjoy making original pieces more but I use fan art as means to practice)

here is a more lighthearted picture
I could have finished this much earlier but I had a plethora or real life things hit me in the face, so sorry about that :ohnoes:

but at least it's Pokemon, everybody loves Pokemon :happybounce:
(I just realized the main colors are green, red, blue, and yellow, the colors of the 1st gen games)

done in Photoshop CS6
enjoy :D

man I realized that I really don't do a lot of horizontal pieces

this piece is a little personal (no I was not abducted by aliens rofl) I'm talking more about the setting, the structure of the house is based on my childhood home
the furniture is not the same but the overall feel is still there, it brings me back (I'm getting old Oh Noes!)

done in Photoshop CS6
this was painted in gray scale and then colored over it with Gradient Maps and other fun things

enjoy :D

Hundun - Roar of Sight Sparking!
Speed Art Video - youtu.be/fHdqZqoJV1A

Here is fan art of the game that  took my soul for a few months (Warriors Orochi 3 Ultimate)
to be honest I wanted to draw DBZ and Warriors Orochi but I couldn't decide which, so I went with both...

so here is a DBZ-esque picture with a WO3U character
I always felt DBZ vibes from Hundun whenever he did his Musou attack, which is why I chose him for the picture

the title is a mix of his theme song (Roar of Sight Marred) with DBZ's "Sparking!"

done in Photoshop CS6
enjoy :D

don't forget to watch the video!
