ahh, thank you! Always means a lot coming from you! Yeah, I wanted the blue butterflies to really pop, since the commissioner saw me do butterflies before and specifically asked for them! Thanks so much dearie~!
I very well understood that your wolves were made with your style but I think that you still need to practice for the anatomy especially for the legs... There are bases to be respected in anatomy whatever is the style of the artist Anyway, anytime!
COULD YOU STOP BEING AMAZING FOR 5 MINUTES?! YOU'RE KILLING ME! Gah, I love those blue butterflies! I love the pose of the whitish character as she's perched atop the rock. Your use of textures is amazing! I have one question, do you add shading or is that how it looks from the texture?
AHHHHH NO STOP I'M NOT AMAZINGGG D: I love the little butterflies, too, they were so much fun! 8D Thank you! It's mostly my way of shading. I layer and layer and layer different tones and different levels of opacity, then, at the end, I apply a paper texture to it. Paper textures are easy to make, too! Just abuse a piuece of paper (spill paint on it, coffee, crinkle it, then scan and use) That's the most i can say without explaining my whole entire process.
oooh, yeah, I used to make the same mistake acouple years ago, when I first started developing a style. You can't be lazy and let the textures hog all the woek, however tempting that is! ALWAYS think of textures as ADDED effects, the whole piece shouldn't depend on the textures; the textures should should bring out and sharpen what's already great about the foundation of shading and highlights.
I hate shading most of the time because I'm terrible at it. XD I understand the light source and everything, but I have a hard time drawing multidimensional cause I'm stuck in 2D lol. Thank you for the help! ;w;
♥ holy mother of nature! this is beautiful! a true masterpiece! i can't express just how much i love this through the font options here but <3 kdjf;ksdjgksg n ffffffffffffff o___e deff one of my favorite commissions! Yer at da top! i can't thank you enough for your time & well practiced efforts! I love your art ♥
I'm so glad I could make you so happy! It was an honor to draw your favorite characters, I actually really liked bringing their designs into my style! Awww I'm so flattered that you love it so much! No, thank you, for choosing to commisison me! I thoroughly enjoyed it!
im paying through my friends paypal & she just thought i'd be gifting you the money so i need to get on her about getting the shirts. ha, i was also wondering if i could post the commission on one of my tumblr accounts, giving you full credit of course. i can probably even link your deviantart account to the comments on the post if you'd like, i just need your permission to even re-post it in the first place though c:
Oh yeah, I'd be flattered if you Tumblr-ed my artwork! I'd love to have the link so I can put it in the artist's comments on here, I love it when people blog/reblog my artwork!
Ooooh, I gotta say, if they haven't been ordered yet, at least one of them is already sold out, which would mess up the order (seeing as I planned the order to come to 42$ with shipping, as long as every item is there ) If ya want, you could just wait until you know for sure you can pay right away, and I could throw together another 42$ order.
The internet was against me commenting on this. House internet was down, so I tried on my phone. Then phone internet was like "lolno comment NOT posted successfully," then house internet started working again. LET'S TRY AGAIN.
So. I think I was able to isolate what my favorite thing about your art is. Besides that fact that it's totally awesome. But I think it's that you manage to blend the cleanness of digital art with a style that looks impressively traditional (the hills, in particular, are reminiscent of a watercolor painting, I believe). Crisp, but with a human touch. Makes for an awesome style!
Also, I love the colors on this! They're mostly soft and unsaturated, but then the butterflies are like, "BAM WE'RE SUPER BRIGHT BLUE." Lovely contrast!
Oooh, what a royal pain in the buns! D: I'm glad it finally decided to work for you!
I'm so glad you feel that way about my work, because that's exactly what I always try my hardest to do! The reason I dropped traditional watercolors in favor of digital is because I can still get that more organic look without sacrificing the cleaner, more polished look that you can get with digital mediums. It took a while to figure our to make it work, but I'm so happy it's paying off!
PS- I'm still playing around with sketches for your commission! When I finally finish a complete sketch, I can upload a WIP if you like! Or, would you rather it be a surprise at the end when I finish?
