Lost in the Forest


In an effort to continue practicing my rendering and background abilities, have Twilight in the forest. Colorwise, I’m quite happy with this one- I was actually inspired by some concept art from Kubo and the Two Strings.

As I’m doing this, I’m realizing more and more that for the exceptionally skilled artists, the point I consider myself “done” is their halfway point. Between this and the Asriel drawing, if I spent more time adding the small details, I could really bring these drawings to life.

Something for myself to consider, moving forward.

Next time, I need to work on rendering characters!

This has a great sense of atmosphere. Have you seen Kubo? Is it as good as everyone says?

This is my favorite type of art. Not super detailed character art or funny comics, but gorgeous pieces with only one or a few characters, not as a focus, but just a small speck of dust in a corner of a massive landscape

At least she can cast light at will. :)

But when she casts light, she also casts shadows!
