Sun Setter by animalartist16 Sun Setter by animalartist16
My half of the trade with :iconwhisper820: of her character, Nilyn. This is just the most gorgeous character, I just had to draw her. ;u; I just hope I got the design correct enough, she had to have been one of, if not the most difficult character I've ever done though. Since she has so many markings, I didn't go into insane amounts of detail/shading or else I would have gone mad. xD I focused more on color and lighting here as well.

Man these last 2 days have been amazingly productive art-wise o: I've knocked 4 things off of my to do list that I had just sitting around as WIPs for a while. I really wanted to get these things done before the contest deadline, so I'm glad I was able to. :)

Paint tool SAI, no refs, no idea how long it took
Used a texture by `hibbary with low opacity over the image.

This is very beautiful. The colours blend beautifully together and the lighting flows nicely. I adore how you did the sky and the tree. Also the animal, even though its colours are somewhat unnatural, you made it quite believable that an animal would have such markings. The only thing that I can nitpick about it is that the grass is semi transparent, which works great except for the part closest to us. Well in my opinion anyway.

Good job!

Yeah, I think over-detailing would have just been overkill for this one, and made me go insane while I was at it xD

I like how she's squishing the sun like that. I personally love squishing the sun.

BUT YES. These colors are just GODLY mmph. I love all 212939 colors in the sky, man WOW! Those pretty sunsetty clooooouds omg! I love how you took those colors and used them in the grasses too. It's so sneaky and makes the piece so cohesive :heart:. Aaaah and I love all those little leaves! All those colors on the dragon too. Just AWESOOOOME <3333
