I did traditional art! :iconflowerdanceplz: 
And it didn't fit in the scanner. ^^; 
Eventually took a picture of it and tried to edit the lights as best as I could but ehh, it still looks better on paper.

Anyhow! Spoilers! Maybe... spoilers? Something related to my comic FanFyria which approaches it's finale! *glee!*
Check it out if you're interested ^^

Maybe I will do more traditional art works this week. I begin to get along with my color pencils. :ninja:

The characters and the artwork belongs to me, please don't use it without permission.
Thank you for viewing!

I really like this picture. It's so beautiful. ^-^
I don't know what else to say, besides the fact I can't seem to stop staring at it. X3;

Why thank you! Bit late replying around. XD; I seem to be in constant hurry lately.
I really want to fiddle with my scanner sometime and see if I can make it pull better quality than what it's been doing lately. X_x

you're welcome^^
I remember when I used to scan my pictures it would always mess up the color no matter what I did.. x.x But hopefully you'll be able to find a way to pull it off.

I have a soft spot for traditional art Denny! It also reminds me of the first drawings of yours I saw ^__^= I haven't seen Exarrd since forever! He looks so happy here too, bless him! Great colouring, I especially love the feather detail!

I feel like whatever I draw will get butchered by my scanner...q_q or I will butcher it when I color it! *sob* but yes... I do get nostalgic when I draw by hand! It's got it's own charm! ='D

Ahhh it's beautiful! Everything just screams soft. ;3; The expressions, the pose, the colors, the lighting, and.....feathers are soft. (SMURT CRITIQUE YAY? XD) I love it. ;;

It was bit -too- soft when I was trying to scan it and the scanner kept leaving blurry areas. X'D
:ninja: Actually a different character than my trusty bard! As you said, no bard would ever lose their hat! X'D
His hair was darker blue but after editing the picture it got more pale than it should been. TT;

Cameras and scanners always kill traditional art. It always looks  better in person. That being said, as it is, this looks beautiful @__@ You've done a fantastic job on this, as per usual~! Thank you so very much for sharing this wonderful piece with us~!

They do. TT I don't get what people do to make their traditional works appear so nice and clean and vibrant. Mine constantly eats a color or brightens another. ^^; I keep fiddling with the adjustments but I can never get good quality scan.
Oh well! X'D
Thank you! It's been a while since I've tried to color traditionally. It's so relaxing but one mistake and whoops! ^^; There is no undo key.

I wish my scanner could fit it TT the camera shot wasn't top notch given how we had gloomy weather nearly every day! I was all "Okay it will get sunny and a photo will look good." but nope... >>;
Thanks though! ^_^/

Maybe you could try getting it scanned at a print shop? Usually they have larger, high end scanners for just such problems.

I'm quite the beginner level when it comes to traditional art. I have water color paper here which's been sitting on my drawer for ages and I really want to try using it but I'm never brave enough to. :XD:
Maybe tonight I will muster some courage!
