Setting Sun, Rising Moon by Kaiya-Ashigawa Setting Sun, Rising Moon by Kaiya-Ashigawa
So I asked you guys what you thought I should do next and the answer was almost unanimous: WOLF! XD lol I started this one while strangely in my 5th period animations class on friday the 18th. We had a guest speaker that day from a art college in Laguna and he was talking about how to be a good artist you have to sketch a lot and I was doodling and this is what turned out as a rough sketch. Then on Monday while siting with my mentor for my Senior Project she was looking at my art and she liked this one so I started working on it some more. Over a ten hour period off and on I finalized the sketch, pened it, and eventually colored it. ^^ It was funa dn I even threw in my transparent little flare that I've been using lately. This piece goes along with my pic. ^^ Enjoy!

Thanks. ^^ I had sketched it and my mentor for my senior project liked it so I finished it. I did the coloring after seeing and getting inspiration from Avatar. OMG I loved that movie! ^^ lol

I really really like your coloring style ! You use so many wonderful colors yet you get the perfect tone for the atmosphere you want to inspire. Due to its coloring this piece feels mystical and atmospheric. For me the moon is my favorite element, the colors are very smooth there and it gives a nice contrast :) !Great work :clap: !

^^ Thats what I try to go for. I mean when ever I first start coloring them its just a bunch of layers but then I blend it all together and it all comes together into something that I can be proud of. lol ^^ Did you see its partner picture?

mixed about this one.

The fur pattern is beautiful, and probably realistic (Not that i know anything about animal anatomy o.o;)

But the coloring scheme is kinda difficult to understand. The cliff (?) looks transparentish, and the alternating blues for the sky don't make much sense to me :/
