UPDATE 3: Can't believe I still updating and fixing this one :D
                So, I completely redrew Moe's mane, and added more depth
                to it, I also enlarged his eyes a bit.
                On, Willow's part, I drew a new torso to her, and reduced
                her head size a bit.
                Earlier version:


I changed Willow's bag, and added some patterns to the sleeves of her dress. Not big changes,
 but I glad that I redesigned her bag, I like the new one better.

earlier version:

UPDATED: I completely redrew the whole illustration.

Here you can see the earlier version:


I drew that last march, so almost a year ago. I like the new version much more, hope you feel the same ^^

I'm sorry that I was so inactive in the last 2 months, I like to submit at least 1 illustration/week, hope I can
accomplish that.
I'm way behind with my notafications too, but I will catch up with those, promise :crossfingers: revision

Hope you have a nice week folks ;)

I have to put some black and white illustrations in my new portfolio too, many publishers can't afford to
print their books in color, so I have to prove that I can create drawings without any colors or even shading.

Hope you like it ^_^

Thank you.

Thank you ^^
Well, this one is always mean to be a b&w piece,
I'm not sure that it can work as a colored one to be frank.
How can I make the background work in color ? I do not
have enough space to put anything in that, and if I put this thing on
a bigger sheet, than the focus will slips away from the characters.
And a plain colored backgound just would look weak.
Also, it is really tricky to color the fur, so....

But anyway...I just recently completely redesigned these characters
(I mean I kept the base characteristics, just updated and changed things
on them, but I kept the DNA) So I going to remake this relatively soon.

Thank you for the comment, have a wonderful day :)

Yes and it is beautiful in B&W, I just tend to see colored art especially when it reflects this kind of warm emotions like the one in this picture ^^ Kind of childish feeling that likes to see thing in color hahaha

Humm, the background? You're right about the bigger sheet, it will turn off the focal point you achieved, also detailed background will do the same! I don't know about the plain BG, maybe if it's styled in gradient it won't look plain?

Yet, there's another way but I'm not sure if it works with this piece. In one of my comic episodes i just painted blurry BG for my panels, it contained bushes and people figures and other can check it out as I'll provide a link with my latest upload to a video of the coloring process that contains notes on the BG coloring at the end of it...if you wish ^^

And good luck with your redesigning work Gytrash :nod:

I still struggle with the anatomy, but I'm bit
better at it then last year, but there's room for
improving more, that's for sure. :D
Thanks again for the kind words, means a lot :heart:
