Guiding Light by animalartist16 Guiding Light by animalartist16
Trade with :iconshien-ra: of Eirlys.

Drawing ice on her was harder than I thought xD Hope it's somewhat believable haha

Inspired by this photo: [link] and used a few different refs of taxidermy deer heads to get the rough angle and shape.

I love how cold this looks! I especially love the background, and the fur and lantern of the character!

Your art is so fantastic. I write poetry by listening to certain music and also by looking at interesting artwork and I must say; yours is definitely interesting and inspiring! Do you ever sell any of it?

Thank you so much! I'm very glad you find it inspiring then <3
I do commissions, and would like to sell more of it. I need more original pieces (not of other people's characters) that I could sell prints of. Though, I'm sorry I don't think I'll be using deviantart's print system anymore. I barely get any pieces bought, and even if I did, I've never gotten any of the profits, so I don't find it worth it. I want to find another site better with selling prints and such.

Agh, I love this character ;w; I really like the composition overall and your anatomy, it's like, perfect. Your tail fur is delicious and I can't stop looking at it, as well as the mountains and snow thar. You're like, a master at coloring white. Teach me. ;___:

Well... I think the trick with white is that you shouldn't be afraid of really dark shadows, especially if the character is like this one and the light is against it for the most part. Also, strong, pure white highlights help it really appear white instead of grey as well. A bunch of other colors can be used in it too of course, since it's so reflective, so add in some colors that are around the character. Here I used a lot of blue in the white fur, and around the yellow parts, I lightly added a yellow tint. Does this help at all? ;o;

No problem ;u; Well maybe one day when my internet doesn't completely suck and I'm able to stream, I could try to do a better demonstration, since I fail at explaining xD I'm sure you'll get it though, you've been improving a lot lately <3 White's one of the most difficult colors to master, and I even haven't mastered it lol
