well this is the finished piece that I posted a million WIPs for. Finally.
things I like:
Lhor and Shadow's shading/ coloring
the texture of the closest tree
Things I find irksome:
the leavy bits behind the light rays (just looks like a tree blob)
the fenceline/ trees going into the vapor (after ages of trying to make it nice.)
So then just a bit about the drawing, its Lhorvetta (horse) and Shadow (lady) who are an alliance that overlook a forest. They keep peace here (usually by controversial means) and live in the middle of the forest in an area surrounded by a vaporous river enclosed in a fence. Shadow is a grim reaper type entity and lhorvetta is a ghost demon. Yay!
Even though everything about them is dark, and the control others by use of shadows, Shadow likes the sun.
Lhor is supposed to always have a rope halter or tack but I didn't feel like drawing it.
Done in photoshop elements on a wacom bamboo fun tablet, took...uh...8 hours? I really don't know.
crits are fine but realize I'm probably not changing this one...so crits geared towards improving for next time would be appreciated
Well any crits are appreciated of course
