Wow, thank you for the DD!
Now that you're here, I'd like to point out the collaboration challenge I'm hosting!
It's a really fun way to see your work interact with that of other artists!
>> www.deviantart.com/foxofwonder… <<
1.5k (or 1k, hahah) celebration - collab!It's technically been a long while ago for dA, but I reached 1k on all three platforms recently and that's something worth celebrating!For this celebration, I want to focus on what I most enjoy about uploading to social media, and that's the interaction we get with each other. In this challenge, your aim is to finish one half of the drawing with your world / characters in your own style, and following the template you will be able to match your entry with any other entry of the opposite side! I really wonder what kind of weird and wonderful combinations we'll see when we match up your entries!You'll have until January 31st to finish your entries. The best 3 will receive a free headshot commission as well. Download the left or the right template at https://nextcloud.ysconator.com/s/g5fzo7YqsDSGbeQ to get started!Don't forget to use the hashtag #foxofwonders1k as well as either #foxofwonders1k_left or #foxofwonders1k_rightdepending on which side you finished!Shares are VERY MUCH appreciated! 💚,,,,,
Check it out!
Omg this is so gorgeous, you've done an excellent job on the shading and giving the feathers sheen!! I also like the pose you went with and the golden ring is a really good addition that kind of ties it all together c:
You wouldn't believe it, but in the initial version (which I deleted within a minute because I was so dissatisfied with it :'D) the sheen was hardly there. I'm really really glad I realised that soon enough to rework it, and now I'm quite happy with it. ^^
I've often seen people do golden rings in the past and always thought they looked really cool, but for the longest time I had no idea how to make them look good, and even when I did, it took a while until I found a character that it would suit with. Coin here was just perfect for it, her golden accents were practically begging for something golden in the background.
Yes! The sheen adds so much to this piece as a whole so I too am glad you caught that!
I know exactly what you mean, I absolutely love circular ring-type haloes and there are some characters that, like you said, are just begging to have one added for them
