DM-FLAMEBOMBER commission by dyemooch DM-FLAMEBOMBER commission by dyemooch
A commission ah diz'. Commissioner just wanted pencils, but FIRE!!! come on... FIRE!!! I love to color fire. Anywho. Took my time on the colors... and "black" isn't the most flattering of backgrounds, but considering I wanted the emphasis on the "FLAME" part of Flame Bomber, I thought it was appropriate.
Flaws here-and-there... the colors make a few of the pencil mistakes stand out; one such being his right hand's middle finger being too long; or the uncomfortable bend of that left leg. Overall, this has to be one of the few things I've done that I like. Not LOVE, but like, yes. Anywho.
I think I overdid it on the fire... and the "blue backlighting" was added "last second" because I the picture needed more dimension.

So yeah. Whatever you wanna say, feel free. I took artistic license on the guy.

Flame Bomber/Bomberman (c) HUDSON SOFT/MGAME.Corp (I think?)
NOTE: this is a commissioned piece, so I would appreciate it if nobody alters or reuses this image(it's why I turned off the "make available on deviantMOBILE" option). Danke!

At first when I saw the pixel image, I thought that was it. But when I saw the full image... :wow: That just blew my mind!
Awesome job! I love the flames on both of them!

I wouldn't like this as much as I do right now if it wasn't for the fiery effect... it's just breathtaking. Keep it up

Dude, I could watch that thumbnail for days ;P I mean, all the pixely goodness on the thumbnail is enough for me to start drooling, but the flames on the actual image...DUDE! That is the "bomb-diggedy"!
Meatball-man Featured By Owner Dec 30, 2005  Hobbyist Digital Artist
wow the amount of detail/time and colouring in this piece is just amazing i swear if i had a weak bladder i would of pissed myself at the sight of this picture its just about perfect :)
Fugiri-Shi Featured By Owner Dec 25, 2005
That is sooo badass! I love it! Oh man... have you seen the animated opening to the newest Game Cube Bomberman game? heh, it's pretty tight.
proconpictures Featured By Owner Nov 26, 2005
ok. you know that you are pretty good with fire. i won't repeat the others.
but i was wondering if you ever thought about creating a tutorial on that matter...
MarteGracia Featured By Owner Nov 6, 2005  Professional Digital Artist
i hate you!
the fire you creates its AMAZING:
dyemooch Featured By Owner Nov 6, 2005  Professional Digital Artist
hah; but you have a better eye for mood and light sources XD. I just got lucky with the fire- I looked at so so so many reference images, so I am always pleased to hear that all that studying paid off.
Juny Featured By Owner Nov 1, 2005
That flame looks soooo realistic!!!! The lighting comng fromit is awesome too! THAT'S IT!!1 I'M WATCHING YOU, MR.!!!
MTB-X Featured By Owner Oct 30, 2005
well, i think the preview image was way cooler then the actual peace of art.
dyemooch Featured By Owner Oct 30, 2005  Professional Digital Artist
I don't know whether or not that was a compliment or a disguised critique?
MTB-X Featured By Owner Oct 30, 2005
donīt get me wrong, the final piece is cool and well done, but in my opinion the preview image has more style then the actual deviation.
sorry, just my opinion.
sythiar Featured By Owner Oct 14, 2005  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Oh... this is really, really nice. I like the way you did the fire and the lighting. And I'm really impressed by the colouring alltogether. The dark background is especially good, since it brings out the darkness in the character and the puts a special emphasis on the fire. In my opinion this could easily find a way into a game booklet.
A very good job.

Beautiful job with the flames.. you use a wacom, yeah?
danee313 Featured By Owner Oct 3, 2005   General Artist

Empressive piece
teatea Featured By Owner Aug 11, 2005
The fire--!! Oh my god, the fire...I can't believe it's hand drawn, looks like a photo. Blue backlight really gives him dimension, and I especially like how you colored his right glove...hmm, something special about it, the yellow decoration catches attention.
Ahh, Bomberman, the love game of my youth XD...

The Sumire picture will be up soon(after Blacksignal's Astro : D); I totally need to make up my mind on what she's doing XD!!
And thanks! I'm very happy that a lot of people are commenting on the fire- it was pretty annoying to color; but, at the risk of sounding egotistical, I do think I got it down pretty nice : D!
xShaneoiDx Featured By Owner Aug 5, 2005  Hobbyist Digital Artist
WOW the colours are awesome and the pose rocks :eyepopping: striking work! Yes, striking is the word I'd use to describe this...
pandami Featured By Owner Aug 5, 2005
The flames are so sexy that id lick them inapropriatly. ;x But then I doubt Id have a tongue. BUT! Then Id be drooling over them. So I think thats a good thing. Hmm...
