Oasis by animalartist16 Oasis by animalartist16
My half of the trade for :iconfelansilverchild: of her new character I just designed for her. :dummy:

I.. really like how this came out? ;u;
I think this is one of my new favorite pieces. <3 At least favorite digital piece. x'D

Done in paint tool sai, no idea how long it took. o-o

And thanks to ~AvientLoner86 who helped me along the way with critiques to make it better than it would have been with just me working on it alone. :'D And thank you also to anyone who came and watched me stream it at any point. ^^

I hope you like it! :heart:

Character now belongs to ~FelanSilverchild
Design/Art (c) Me

This is AMAZING!!
How did you do the fur so well?
This is one of my favourite images on DeviantART
What program did you use?

The fur took a lot of time, and varying the size/opacity of the brush. c:

Holy hell
This is so gorgeous, I want to run my fingers through the fur. Scratch that, I wanna rub my face all over in that fur.
You perfected the colours, and the colour changes between tones. And tones? That greenish blue is to die for.

holy cow! er...i mean, holy chimeara? this is epic! there's so much detail on this beast! though, not that i want to be nitpicky, but i don't think that background does it justice. put some more effort into that background!

well, don't give up! you can get better, and just come back to this piece later. let's both practice some more with backgrounds! :la:

This is finished, I don't plan on going back to it, sorry. I'd rather just practice in the future and leave finished pieces as they are. xD

awww nuts, ok then.
though with digital pieces, i like to think you can never really call them "finished", since you can go back any time and change pretty much whatever you want. you can't really do that with traditional mediums, so when those are finished, then they're finished. i think both ways have a certain charm because of this. oh dear, i feel myself drifting off topic again. i should stop doing that :lmao:

Yeah xD I started as a completely traditional artist, so I kinda go by that rule of once I call it finished for sure, I won't go back to it unless I absolutely have to. But after working so long on that picture, I really don't feel like going back to it lol. I kinda wanted the background to kind of appear less focused and a little bit 'mirage-like' too. If I went back and fixed anything at all, it would probably be around the feet since I really don't like how it appears to float in the background, so I would draw more sand around the toes now. It's been a few months since I did the picture too, so I've learned a bit more in that span of time as well. x3

well if you do decide to go back to it, might i suggest you give a little more detail to the tree on the far right? it's close to where the subject is, so i think it should have a bit more detail on it. also it looks like it's blending in with the sand at the base of its trunk.

and i just noticed that tiny tiny tree at the bottom left and went like this :squee:

Ok, though I doubt I'll go back to it unless I'm really bored. xD I like to leave mistakes in older pictures that irritate me so I'll work harder to improve too haha.
:'D I think my favorite part of the bg is either that little tree or the water lol.

I don't think there are sufficient words in my (rather extensive) vocabulary to truly express how much I am in awe of this marvel. :wow: Definite instant fave!

Oh yes, I gave you a llama badge as thanks! Enjoy the Fancy Llama! :icondragonglomp:
