Come on in and relax as you view my graphics. XD -hands all visitors some cookies, some punch, and free pocky- Who doesn't like pocky? XD
Anyways, I wanted to start off my new showcase thread with an extraction I did for a contest over at Misty Ice Design Forums. :D I'm rather proud of it.
Took around ... 1.5 hours to do. The hardest part of the whole extraction process was creating shadows around her. >_> Where she is at, the shadows between her and the tree she is in were indistinguishable, so I had to 'make them' you could say with the pen tool. Hopefully they look right. :ninja: And after that, did some cleaning on the scan because it needed some updating so that the colors would be more vibrant.
Anyways, here ya go! =D
Character from Tsubasa Resevoir Chronicles, Scan from Aethereality.net. :D
Render o_o? Did you draw that?
Nope. I didn't draw that. >__> I wish I could draw like that. I guess I should say 'Extraction' instead of Render. >_< It's an extraction I did that took some effort for once. I was showing it off. XD

dear lord man. thats a huge render. O__O; lol. nice cut too. i dont see a lot of problems on it. great job. :D
I like it, very pretty. I think the colors are very regal looking.
Nice job -two thumbs up-
Thanks for you comment Muz .. I think. o_O Because of MAF and their extraction contest, I decided to do another extraction and the theme is CLAMP artwork, which I am starting to have an affinity for. >_> -being converted-
So I found this beautiful scan of Marissa from Tsubasa Resevoir Chronicles and decided to extract it. This size presented is suitable for a wallpaper, but I have a much larger version in the "My Extractions" link in my signature. :D Enjoy!
To put some of this to 'render' business to rest. When I first started actually doing sigs and stuff, I started off on ChaosGFX. And that's what they called them there. Extractions were called 'Renders'. So naturally, that's what I learned to call it. >__> so I apologize for the major confusion that is going on in here. The final thing is that I changed my terminology and everything is ok now. :) They are called 'Extractions', I stand corrected.
I think I fell in love with that last extraction you made Thorny... <3 It purrrtifull! And CLAMP have the best artwork, I truely admire them!
( can't stop staring at that ... It's soooo clean...) -jelous- XD
Keep it up thorn!
Ok another extraction to show all of you. ^_^ I know it's nothing you can really comment on, but I like show them because they take so long to do. >_> Original scan is from AnimePaper.net and I had to do some recoloring on this one to make it look right.
Another one from Tsubasa Resevoir Chronicles. Blame Kristen for her getting me addicted to the artwork of this anime. lol <3 you
Enjoy! And use if you like!!
o.o your my hero. i'm always in need of extractions and you saved my life! o.o i might use some of your's for random art or something. do you think you can take alook at my thread and give me some tips. i could really use some, i'm looking for new ideas.
Thorn, your renders are so wonderfully clean =^.^= I'll use it one day and give alotta credit to ya ^.~. Keep it up ^^.
"Give me a home among the gum trees, with all the plum trees, a sheep or two and a kangaroo, clothesline out the back, veranda out the front and an old rocking chair!"
Sorry i just had to sing that song you have veranda and it reminded me of it! ... this is sooo Australian x_x .. >>;
Thorny!! your so good at extractions and you like to do them <3
I really like this one, how you have cut it so neatly, mine usually have something wrong with them. Ha
And you must take your time and cut them perfectly 'cause these extractions are just splendid.
Keep up the great work my friend <3
Haven't updated in quite awhile. O_O Well here is a new extraction I just recently accomplished and this took about ... a hour. The hardest part was some text was on the girl and well, I had to color her with the mouse to make sure you couldn't see it. XD So hopefully I smoothed it out enough and you can't tell. And if you can, you have great eyes. XD Anyways, this scan is from AngelDust! =D
Extraction is kinda bad at some parts ... I know you can do better ^_^;
Very pretty Thorn-sama. I like it.
she's beautiful... i cant get my eyes of her
I've been staring at it and I honestly don't think it could get better than that. It's near-perfection to me. The image is crisp and clear, looks like the re-coloring you did was magnificent ^^ (I've seen this image alot, I have an idea of what the original scan must have looked like) Great choice for an image btw, it's very beautiful. Aoi Nanase is my favorite Mangaka for a reason!
Now, I wish I actually did graphic work and could put this extraction to use! Lol but I'm sure anyone who does use this will love you for the wonderful job you did. What still amazes me is that you actually like doing them! Haha I know if it were me I'd tear my hair out, just seems like alot of work ^^;
That is really amazingness Thorny. I am speechless. WOW!!!! GOOD JOB!!!
Woots! Thanks for the comments everyone. 2 new extractions for you to enjoy, both are from the anime Angel Dust, scans are from AetherReality.
I tell ya, I think I'm getting a little better when it comes to working with scans because they tend to often be grainy, but with filters and a few tricks up my sleeves, I think the quality has improved a little! Enjoy!
i like all of those pretty pics with those girls and like almost everybody else--i can't stop staring at them! they r so pretty! awesome job and i hope 2 c more!
New Extractions everyone! Thanks for the comments, as always. ^^
These three are from Aquarian Age. My brother, dawnrune, is reading the mangas, so it inspired me to do a couple of these! Enjoy!! (scans from aetherreality)

EDIT: I just realized with the dark background of the skin I'm using, there is some white outline on my extractions. lol So before you tell me about them, I already know. XD I'll adjust them soon.
EDIT v.2: Fixed them to the best of my ability.
The 2nd one ... I want the original one!!
2 one is very beautiful... her eyes... look at them! *looks into eyes*
i see haven...
hm, another suggestion ... maybe you should start adding the credits on the extractions ;)
