and on with the description
I love this piece XD by far my favourite now which im glad of because it actually has~ a background
and also because i didn't use ref for it ^^ i glanced at a few cloud pictures to get the colours right but i didn't look at any wolf ref :3
This artwork started as a banner for my weasyl page, as I was redoing
but then i decided to turn it into a full picture because I thought it would look better. and eventually it turn into this.
I did the mountains first as I know how to draw them XD then i drew the grass, but i wasn't happy with it. So i decided to do the clouds using my own feathered brush I created. afterwards and once that was done i could do the lake and the reflection, this is when i gave the grass another try. After looking up tutorials and browsing through them, I decided to take on a few tips and advice from =ESDA06
's Grass tutorial [link]
. I didn't copy it directly i didn't even read that much of it, just to get the overall gist of it. and so this grass was Created, in record time!
Then I did the shading of on Rayra, I was going to experiment but i stuck with my other style, wanted a shading style i was comfortable with, and i think im just going to stick with this style. I then touched up a few things and added details to my character like the wiskers and the light on the nose.
Also this piece was the first piece I used the black layer on saturation to check the value of my image [=
