Part of a trade with ~GlowWolfLove c: So much furrrrr~ its pattern is not exactly consistent throughout but whatevs; I'm glad I resisted the urge to give up half-way through xD Anyway; All-'round this was very fun to paint and it taught me alot about detail lvls -aaand I'm so happy with the colors! It's getting more and more easy to pick the right shades with every picture What do you guys think? Comments are appreciated!
Up next on my To-Do-List are two paintings (one from September, one from March) which I really want to finish before the autumn holidays...but I also wanna do an animation. And a short comic. And a few memes. So much to do, so little time -Tumblr is calling me *procrastination strikes again! hopefully not*

Deer are probably the one kind of animal which can be so cute it melts your brain, so majestic you want to bow down to them and so creepy that you'll have nightmares for weeks.
Spontanous vent-art doodle. (With a suprprisingly large amout of thought put into the design/color scheme.) Most fun: The (new!) linework process, scribbling blood | Least fun: Deciding on a shading technique, eye-balls. SAI, PS CS4, Intous 4. 10h (redid the shading 3 times) >> Art (c) Heyriel
Comments/ thoughts/ feedback is appreciated! -But don't waste your time critting the anatomy, save that for my serious work. xD
//Is this mature content? Idk, you tell me. [Edit] Check out the WIP here: [link] Since someone accused me of using a dollmaker!!
Here it is; the finished version of the WIP from yesterday*! It's my entry to a small contest hosted by the german Let's Play-ers Gronkh and Sarazar, the theme is 'your favourite Dinosaur'. First thought was Triceratops (of course), but Wikipedia had some cool images of other subspecies of the Ceratopsidae with pretty-er horns and patterns, so I ended up choosing the Styracosaurus! (Which also has the benefit of being quadruped and bulky while it's also rather agile~ perfect.) Getting a good composition was a pain in the *ss, it took about 30 sketches and the additional brain-power of ~Ilumeos to get what you're seeing there. Choosing colors and doing the dinosaur went very quickly and without problems (2h) though, but I'm not entirely sadisfied with the plants...they weren't supposed to be super detailed since the focus is on the animal, but still, a bit more...realism would have been nice. Oh well, practice is calling!
The results of the contest will be announced between 6 and 7pm on Friday -while I'm in Bremen watching Hamlet. Meh. Wish me luck guys! I can't even say how epic and key-smashin'-awesome it would be to get the image at least shown, even if I don't win. The thought alone akes me super-giddy, though I try not to expect anything.
For an Art Trade with ~ClassicMuzzle c: Gawd, I finished this last week already but uploading and editing is always so annoying (and f*ck me, I always forget that you can't erase pencil-lines once they've been covered with wc once -it looks incredibly messy like this.) @_@
Her (fantastic) part Give it lots and lots of love!

Gift for my dear friend ~Kerixai, her fursona Leeeee enjoying the summer sun.
I actually started this back in December, had it planned as a christmas gift -but you know how it goes: school, no energy for art; out of sight out of mind. HOWEVER between studying for the A-lvls and wasting time on the net, I made it my mission for the easter holidays to finish up all WIPS and open trades -and it's lookin' good so far, 2 done, 3 to go! The entire process has been capped so instead of going on a lengthy rant about shiny overlay layers and dust particles here, I'll (probably) just post a walkthrough of sorts in the near future -if there's any interest in that from you guys. C:
Enjoy! and please consider leaving a comment if you have the time, it would be greatly appreciated!
[Edit] The walkthrough is online now!: Part 1 ->[link] Part 2 -> [link]
Round 2 of Trades, this time =Araktugage's lovely deer character Asson! <3
This pic is actually a kind of 'Milestone' thing tbh, since my personal goal for this year was to figure out a certain realistic style/method of drawing fur...and now I finally did it! Within the last two works I suddenly realised what I overlooked all this time, and now this is a gigantic leap into the right direction! *practically vibrating with excitement* I obviously still gotta improve the fur pattern and drawing different lengths of hair from different angles (+a thousand other things), but it's at least absolutely certain that all the studying and reference-usage paid off.
