Art trade with :iconnaviira:!

I like when my alter-ego meets other people’s characters, so I couldn’t resist from making such a composition. Here two canines ventured to the mountains of far lands. Though there is not much food up there. Snap once saw the bear who was searching down the rocks for some ant and their eggs, full of protein; Nav doesn’t seem to be that excited about that idea though.

"Oh, there is nothing bad in ant eggs! Pretty nice and satisfying! That's just all we need right now!"
"There may be a point in your words, but, well... You know, wolves live much better on something of flesh and bones. And food doesn't have more than four legs".

You can find some progress shots and extra Nav sketches on my Tumblr.

This must be my favourite from you - the colors are just lovely. I'm not even going to go on about the cute wolves, but the background is gorgeous. You've given the painting so much depth with the level of detail and atmospheric perspective. A lot of thought must have gone into that :clap:

I personally don't think the colors or details are good at this one - still want to remake it when I have time. But thank you.

Why do you think that? For me they are very pleasing and harmonious.

Too many details, not enough contrast. The picture doesn't look good on terms of composition, also the format is not the best.

I'm sorry my reply is so late! But ahhhh. How can I even begin to describe how much I love this??? I'm absolutely obsessed with your backgrounds. There's so much life and dimension in them. I also love the little story you came up with surrounding those two. It is adorable ;-; And those extra sketches on your Tumblr... EEP. Naviira is beautiful in your style. It really makes me want to draw more of her. I love how different you made them look. You're really A+ at designing canine characters!

Can't wait to get my side of the trade done!

Thank you, Nav! Though you may get another art from me sooner or later, because, as I stated in the note, I'm unsatisfied with my part and want to do better :P
You SHOULD draw Naviira more often! Tbh, when was the last time when we saw her on your arts? I guess more then year passed since then. So it would be really great if you'd brought her back!

Ah, I'm exited to see what you come up with!

i think my favorite parts of this are Nav's white little toesies & Snap's tongue of mischief lol the level of detail is amazing, even though it looks so simple I can also see hints of major levels of detail & work put into this. love it!

Thank you! Though I'll mostly like remake this artwork. I feel unsatisfied with the result.
