Winter Wonderland by animalartist16 Winter Wonderland by animalartist16
Yesss it's finally finished :la:

My half of the trade with :iconlekoi: of her character, Luie <3

This took so long to do @-@ But it was fun and challenging at the same time, I was trying to improve in my snowscapes and such too.

Hope you like it :heart:

This is digital art, I hand painted it all with a tablet in a program called Paint Tool SAI using the regular brush.

I thought you might like it. I think it's really cool and Kirin are awesome.. I should draw one sometime, they're so cool. My uncle used to have a mother and baby sculptures of kirin that I absolutely loved growing up and ever since I've been fond of them. I should fav it too! lol
But this picture reminds me of it because of the overhanging icicles they both have and the type of animal seems similar. (the ungulate that is, I know kirin are mythical and not exactly the same, just saying they look similar)

I've wanted to draw a kirin for the longest time xD Just haven't had a chance yet, there's too many things I've been wanting to draw haha.
Ah, that's neat c: I used to love little sculptures like that growing up... actually I still do xD I really want to try sculpting sometime as well, I just lack material now haha.

I've always wanted to too! I have had no experience with it but I like doing every medium of art imaginable if at all possible. I like working with clay too, it feels so good to work with. The only thing I've really made though are small pots and this mask for a friend. [link]

Same here xD The only thing I've never tried is sewing and stuff like that hehe. I'm not too into that kind of art though, I'd rather work with digital/traditional like I have been doing, and then get into sculpting as well. I actually did a little wax sculpture I liked of my character, Volknyr. It was made out of the wax that is around those little cheese things. xD [link] Sorry for the bad photo quality though heh.
And that mask looks really cool, and cute too c: I like how you did the sun on the forehead too <3

I am amazed by your craftsmanship, to think of what you made it out of is brilliant and creative! You never cease to amaze me my dear.
And thank you! ^_^ I haven't gotten feedback on him in a while. The kanji his nose is made out of means friend since I designed it for a friend of mine. I played with the idea of a few designs but I'm pleased with the one I chose.. so thank you I'm so glad you like the rising sun motif worked into there. ^_^

You're welcome, and thank you so much! I'm very glad you like it! He's an awesome character, so I was hoping I would be able to do him justice and get the design correctly. :)

And it's ok, there's no rush, sorry if it's giving you trouble D:
I was taking a little while to get my half finished as well, and actually re-did the entire thing from the original I had planned, but I'm glad I did hehe. So I understand how that is. :heart:
