Kyraneth by Shinerai Kyraneth by Shinerai
______________________________

As the darkness breaks from across this land,
And the dew just glistens like diamonds on its fields of green, and leaves as fair.
Who knew from on high one could see such unrivaled beauty?
Where the gentile winds blow,
And cold gives in to warm.
Its night gives way to day,
I am here,-
and where I alone now sit;
At the edge of dawn.


-- ~Aquilla-Whingate

This is something I did for the new exchange group --> :iconexchangejam:! I helped cofound it and its first exchange was March-April. I obviously a little late, due to unforeseen events, but I hope the result is worth it.

This is *Kyyraneth's character of the same name, whom I hear enjoys sunrises. The themes I went with for this drawing were "Calm" and "Sitting" but i think I covered "climbing" and "laying" too, haha.

Anyway C: Onto commissions. Enjoy.

Art is :iconshinerai: my face.

Wow... Love it. That's a really cool effect, adding on the beads and feathers that are attached via a string, really adds a lot of personality and uniqueness. The tree and the background even look amazing. Keep up the great work!

Awesome! Love this picture. You gave it a lively appearance with the color and shading composition. The background is wonderfully rendered and doesn't feel out of place at all.

It's been a while since I've logged into DA. Busy with work and such. So yeah, I'm happy to see that Shin is still Shin.

Awesome work with a great contrast of colors. Typically, such things can only be produced by a sunrise. The shadowing, depth of field are nice. I did notice the luminance from the translucent leaves and wings. Excellent details that are quite difficult to reproduce properly.

This is very beautiful! I have a question though. For your inking process on this particular piece; did you use a pen and then scan it into the work and manipulate it with your program, or did you ink digitally? Sorry, I'm just curious. ^^

Ack, I really have to doodle up my character for you to breathe awesomeness into at some point. :la:

It's just that I so far suck at making things look 3D, except when modelling (with clay or some such).
I was at one point thinking of that I might just describe the looks in text, but that would leave so much open to guesswork and all that, so that's a no-go...
I just have to get up and do it at some point... But then the big question, how?

I just love this! The shading and highlights are absolutely stunning (I'm a big lover of dramatic lighting, and the colour scheme here just adds to how gorgeous the whole scene is)
Also, I'll always admire the way you can make the joints in the wings look so... real, that's not really a good word to use but getting the joints in the wings all lined up correctly is something I struggle with, so hopefully I'll be able to learn from staring at your art =D

For a second I thought that his tail was chopped off... And I thought 'wow, what an weird but interestingly unique idea...' And then I saw the rest of the tail XD; *is a smart one*
