Loyalty by scenceable Loyalty by scenceable
well this is the finished piece that I posted a million WIPs for. Finally.

So...

things I like:
Lhor and Shadow's shading/ coloring
the texture of the closest tree
the grass

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 :D

That's some of the most beautiful black glossiness I've seen in a while (horse and dress both). Also love the lighting through the trees -- and I'm with you, the grass is very nicely done.

awesome job! Fabric is one of those funny things in art that takes a long time to perfect. In some art schools, they dedicate 6 weeks or so on drawing fabric lol. You really did an outstanding job on the fabric ,how the light hits, its form etc. :clap:
The horse is very beautiful!

thanks! I should definately try drawing fabric more, its one thing that I can never do well. (in this one its photomaniped in not painted) I figured in this it'd look horrible if I tried to paint the fabric, but its something I want to practise in the future.

I must say, you did a seamless job blending the skirt with the rest of the girl's dress - it looks like you drew it! I love the colours in this, and the shading on the horse is fabulous. :heart: Yes, I agree with you about the treetops, but that's something you can put down to practice. Keep it up! :clap:
