Etirc Adoption by Shinerai Etirc Adoption by Shinerai

Description

I started this picture June, 2013 as an adoption for TheFailedDream when they didn't receive their artwork for the ExchangeJam. I am very sorry it took so long, but I was simply not able to finish this image the way I wanted to at my skill level when I started it. It's certainly not perfect now but I think it turned out well enough.

I picked this back up a few weeks ago and now it's finished! I certainly had a lot of trouble with the markings on the character because when I originally started it, I was stupid and painted it full color on one layer which is really difficult for me to do now. It was certainly an adventure and I thank everyone that motivated me through this including but not limited to: Venomeye, AguaRush11, AshasCadence, and Ryoseth-CP.

I hope it was worth the wait, Dream.

Beautiful painting, and such tranquil atmosphere achieved here! I can't stop looking at that water, either — it looks so smooth and just looking at this painting makes me think of breathing in the cold mountain air and dipping my feet into the freezing water. :love: Keep up the amazing work as always, Shin! :D

Aww wow, it look amazing. The style, especially the water sort of reminds me of some of the vector art I've seen.  It makes for quite an interesting effect. And the image itself, its fancy angle, all those little trees,  it looks really amazing!

I actually discovered this by accident, as I was at your livestream and recognised the character from the priew.
Though as I saw the date, I figured you had given up on it by then, making this a pleasant surprise. 
I mean, art in general is a good thing, but it does give that little extra flavour when you have some relation to the character. 
And when this is such a lovely piece as well... 
I mean, the colours are gorgeous, and I really love how they bring out the warmer side to her purple colour. 
What really facinates me though, is how keen your eye have been to detial, both with the green-ish tone in her darker stripes, and all those pretty trees covering the mountains. ^^
Absolutely gorgeous. c:

I'm so sorry for the late comment on this, but I've been busy D:

 

First of all; :faint:

I can't believe it's actually my character in such an absolutely wonderful drawing! :wow: I think I could cry because of the sheer beauty, really! The way you've shaded and drawn Etirc is amazing, I adore how you've drawn her markings, she looks so pretty and majestic :love: As for the background, it seems really peaceful and magical, it's perfect with the light in the horizon and all the pretty stars - with the water it seems like it comes to life and Etirc really has found herself a good place :D I really wish I could be there with her,hopefullythatdoesn'tsoundtooweird, I'm sure it'd be breathtaking :)

This looks so stunning and I always enjoy how you do the transition throughout the sky; with the stars being imperceptible by the fading light and being illuminated with the aid of the night sky c: The scenery and colors themselves are astonishing with all the detail you've applied. Wonderful work c:

Wow!  Another incredible piece!  But you sure got more skill than I do that's for sure!  And you'll forgive my lack of intelligence today but my gosh, this cold has drained me so bad my dead don't wanna work.  Every descriptive word I could use to explain how EPIC this piece is just flies out the window before it even hits my tongue...figuratively speaking of course.  Little uncomplicated statements...fine.  But the words I WANNA use that are right there and don't wanna come...?  *Sighs*

I hate colds. 

But seriously, this is really fun.  The blues give it a nice, calm feeling but the view behind him is totally fun!  I hate heights, though, so if this were real and I was really on a ledge like that .... well, let's just say I'd be scrambling for the farthest place FROM the ledge. But the angle is awesome. He looks like he's about to take flight and experience the freedom of defying gravity the way we never could.  Unless of course some of us were lucky enough to be dare-devil pilots but ... meh. Probably not the same thing. 

The little details you put in his wings are fun.  Just little wrinkles to hint at texture and movement. Simple but effective.

Too fun.

I'm not sure, but it looks like the chest is too big, and if you compare the hind legs with the front legs, you see that even with the perspective, they're too small. But I guess, as experienced and skilled as you are, you must have already noticed that on your own^^
Anyway, it's a very nice scenery you created there :)

Hello and thank you for your critique. The back legs might be a little small? But I don't think the chest is too big.
