Whaa?.. Wow! :D I admit I pretty much gave up on this request and accepted that this picture was not meant to be, so it was such a surprise to see this! :D It's awesome! Thanks, Sayna! *hugs*
This is more chibi-like than your usual style, but it makes Artus and Skylily looks even cuter. Skylily's expression and pose is my favourite part, and I love how her dress has this flowing design. And Artus's outfit is so neat! I love the leaf motive in his tunic, and the paw bracers and wide belt is such a nice touch. And the way his tail fur is fluffed up because of his tail-ring is such a cute detail.
Thank you again for finding time to do this piece for me, I really appreciate it!
Oh no, I entirely intended to finish it. When you asked me, I was in a really busy moment, then I completely forgot until you reminded me, and then I made several different attempts at the picture, but each one just .. meh. You know when you do something that's ok, but you want it to be better? That was what was happening. And then I did this one ;P
Well, I really hope it was worth the wait *hugs back*
Yea, it is a little bit and I'm not completely sure why, but I agree that it makes them look cute. I'm glad you like the clothing designs, I was a bit worried you'd think Skylily's dress was too fancy, but I tried to keep it fairly simple. And I'm glad you like Artus's tunic (I like that part too)
Oh, of course. I always love your characters and drawing them, I just .... *sigh* Growing up is the worst.
The badgers meet a traveler while hiding from a storm. Will they find out more about the troubles at Redwall and maybe figure out more about their opponent? Found out all that and more in the latest update!
Hey .. so, I did this on random. I just felt like trying to redo some old pics of mine to see what they would look like in my new style .. and this is the only one I colored XD So yea. I hope you like it :)
Wow, Sayna, this is awesome! Your improved style has such unmistakable elegance about every character you draw. Astar looks so much more graceful and mature than she usually is! :D I just love her long ears and the cut of her dress. For a moment, I even thought that this was digital, because it has that kind of sheen to it your digital drawings have. Great work! *claps*
Wow, Skvold looks amazing! And while you say that it took you longer than you thought, I’d say it came faster than I thought it would take. ;) I’m really loving the pose, it’s so dynamic and powerful, and Skvold turned out epic while still being his lanky old self. :D Really, the way you drew Skvold there seem to be some kind of nobility in him… you know, like some kind of old lord. I really like his sharkskin armor and the way it fits his tunic – and especially the belt with loops for carrying things. And even though I failed to properly describe his Stonebreaker, it turned out pretty epic. The only critique I can offer is that his legs look long-ish proportion-wise, but it fades compared to how great this picture is – and especially that expression. So yes, I really love it, and I’m very grateful for it. So once again, thank you, Sayna, for this request! *hugs*
Yea .. sorry this took as long as it did .. I actually sketched a version right away, but it didn't really work, and I got kind of discouraged about it. But then I drew this one and really liked it .. soooo .. that's why it's late. Also I just feel really drained from some things going on in my extended family. And aside from all that, there's school and 4H and all in all it is later than I would have liked. I hope you like it anyway :) (sorry in advance for any mistakes I might have made)
sigh* I just typed mega-long comment, and the Wiki ate it... Okay, here we go again.
Well, considering it took you two or three weeks to draw not one or two, but five characters, I wouldn't call it late, nope. And I hope things are getting better with your family, Sayna! Anyway, I really love this group picture; it's good to see my characters 'in flesh', so to say. ;)
You aged Kyle up so lovely, he looks like one of those sweet old uncles. :) You got his and Anka's eye color spot-on, by the way - and the same goes to Angara and Fireclaw's eyes. And thanks for adding the pearl ear-rings - they belonged to Kyle's mother, so they have a special meaning for Kyle. Angara's dress is gorgeous - her sash is especially glorious. :D I love her pose and the way she and Kyle smile at each other - it looks like Angara is cheering him up, and while she does tease him mercilessly, they both know she would always have his back.
I love the colors you chose for Anka, the rich chocolate suits her well, and her mask looks smooth. My favourite part has to be Fireclaw, though - he looks so mischievous and upbeat! His markings are so neat, and I like how his mask fades, that's Kyle's family trait actually. I don't know if it's intentional, but I like his pointy ears. By the way, marbled polecats do have larger than average ears, so... Grandma genes strike again? ;P I like his clothing, and it's cool how you included all the weapons in the picture without making it look like a battle stance. I'd only say that Nightsky looks older than she is, but maybe that's because she stands next to Kyle. And actually, this new image fits well with her thoughtful personality! She has a nice dress, too.
Your art is amazing as always, Sayna - I can't thank you enough! *hugs* Thanks a ton!
Well, this took way longer than I planned .. I sketched it, and then over the Holidays I decided to try doing it in watercolor *facedesk* I should have known that wouldn't work. So I redid it in good old colored pencil ;)
Woah, thanks, Sayna! It was totally worth the wait! *hugs* I love that pose and that the characters look like they are actually interacting there. And those expressions, Freedom looks like 'Take one more step and I'll take your head off' while Maple is all like 'Guys, can't we just talk it out?' :D It's priceless! *applauds* Also, Maple's fur - I swear it even looks fluffy, especially his ears. *pats Maple's ears* And even though their clothes are simple, you really managed to put an elegant twist on them with Dom's sleeves and Maple's shirt collar. :)
Awww *hugs back* I'm glad you like it and don't mind it took me so long :) That was kind of what I was going for with the expressions, I'm glad it worked ;D I did put some texture on him, cause I just make squirrels slightly more fluffy than others (I mean, cause the tail and all) ^^ You're right ... now I want to pet his ears *pets Maple's ears* Maple: Uhhmm ...
Yea, I didn't want it to be too flashy, so I left off all borders and decoration, just put a few twists in the styles themselves :)
