Inspiration from the song Rain, by Breaking Benjamin. Go listen to it sometime :3

Anyway, this is another drawing for Toby, though it definitely doesn't do him any justice whatsoever. I really need to draw him something that's worth looking at ;____;

This also introduces a new character [that I've had for a while now]. Her name is Mina and she's a door mouse ^_^

No critique is necessary, though I'm sure you'd like to point out the many things about this drawing - of which I already know - is wrong! The grass and perspective, for example!!

Sooooo ... see you in another few months!! X3 But seriously, I'll try to update more often now ^^;

I agree with everything toby said =D and I recognsed it like, immediately ^_^

but I cant help but notice that you 'didnt stay between the lines' on one of the leaves, there is a non-full-opacity-green coming out of the leaf over the blue (:
but really, worth the :+fav:

it could be really cool, Im not saying it aint good, but it is just that other leaves dont have it and it felt like an irregularity...
but just like my skin is fugly and irregular, it doesnt mean it isnt beautiful (well, my skin pisses me off whenever I look in the mirror and see a model-shaped-acné-skin >.>;)
but here, it could 'work' tpoo, if it were more regular :D

srry it is 23:26 here... >>

Aww, thank you so much for this *clings* :hug: I didn't expect that you'd finish it that soon, buut yeah, it definitely has come a long way, and it looks great! ^-^ The cornfields look like they must have been a lot of work - they are drawn reeeally realistically though, so it definitely paid off ^^ Same goes for lightening and the texture on the fence - they are awesome, and way better than anything I'd have come up with :aww:
The waterdrops are a bit scribbly in my opinion - especially the water behind them; it looks a little slimy instead of water-y ;P The drops themselves look very well done though, the reflections are bright and realistic, and their transparency adds a lot too ^-^ The sky and the sun look fine; I like how soft and puffy the clouds are; their colours are calm and fit the scenery very well.
Mina is adorable; I like the metallic look and the colours of the little locket on her. Personally I think the outlines on her mouth are a bit too thick, as I think it makes it stand out a bit too much; compare it to Jackie, the plants, the fence; they all do without outlines ^^ Another thing you could try is putting her eyes a bit higher, or making them higher - especially with her fur markings, they look just a wee bit too small compared to her head - but maybe that's just me :giggle: Apart from that she looks great, the fur is realistic and same goes for your choice of colours.
I adore the way you drew Jackie - he looks wonderful in your style. The ears, the wings, the shading on him, especially around his feet and the tail - you've definitely outdone yourself on him :clap: The colouring is really smooth, and the shading on him looks just perfect - the way you've drawn and shaded him is a big highlight of the picture (just as much as the fence, the cornfield and everything else - they're great just as well *-*), and definitely looks way better than anything I've ever drawn of him ^^
The grass looks nice too, and really, don't worry about confusing people ;P I don't mind your style being really similar to mine (in fact, I like the style, otherwise I'd not draw in it ;3) - and that's in addition to the fact that yours has its own little twist to it - characters you draw look a loooot cuter than if I had drawn them - that starts with that drawing you printed on the mug, and continues on here.

Besides, look at how little I post ;P Someone of us has to keep posting!!

:+fav: - colouring and texture, rendition and shading of Jackie.

You know you deserve it! *clings back* <3 Trust me, I didn't expect to finish it that fast either, but it just kinda .. ended up that way X3 Especially with the corn fields - I nearly got a cramp from drawing every strand in there X3 But it turned out alright in the end, I think ^^

And thanks sooo so much for all the comments and critiques, I'll keep all of them in mind the next time I'm drawing ^-^

I wouldn't worry about posting drawings if I were you - you're busy enough already with all sorts of other stuff ;P

Ooooh, a favorite from Toby? *-* What an honor!! ~^^~

I think it looks really good :D I mean... despite it being off proportion and stuff (which doesn't seem to matter much actually) I like the way everything looks so painterly... especially the clouds :nod: The water droplets look really fanatastic, as well ^_^ And the two characters look so cute and fluffy :aww: I especially love their eyes and their expressions X3

And yeah, you should draw more. :P Bright and cheerful stuff like this really make my day. :love:

Wow! At first glance I thought that Toby drew this! Wow! Your style is growing to be more like his with every picture! :o I was wondering when you were going to submit another drawing..I was starting to worry :giggle:

Anyhow--Nicely done Libby! It's very cute and the perspective is fine! The background is nice and the foreground is amazing! The rain droplets are a fantastic detail! The shines, the trails, the poolings....amazing :heart: I also like how the characters actually like like they're sitting on grass--usually an artist will over look that little detail, you know? They look all nestled in the blades of grass... so cute :heart: Also good job on the characters themselves! Especially with the turned head, not many people can pull that off :giggle: You should draw more girl!

Goodness, I didn't realize I'd confuse people with this drawing X3 And yeah, I got distracted a lot from drawing, so I haven't posted a lot..

Thank you ~^^~ And I will draw more - you promise to do the same! :giggle:

Oh my, when I first saw this I thought it was by Toby. XD That's something to be proud of! Despite not submitting much, your drawing ability has still flourished! The first thing that really captures my attention are the plants and water droplets. They're so beautifully done, and the way they glisten is very true to nature. They seem to have a life of their own, which is a great achievement. I don't see anything wrong with the grass detail either - or anything, for that matter! The amount of love and attention you've put into this really shows. I'm glad you've introduced us to your little mousie character as well, she's adorable. =3 Fantastic work Libby, keep it up! :heart:

Yeah, I've sort of adopted his style, haven't I? X3 But I don't think I'll ever be on his level of artistic talent ._.

Thanks so much for the comment =^^= It makes me feel a little better about my abilities X3 I think the water droplets were the easiest things to do ^^

Thanks again!! :hug:

Yay! You finished! ^^ I think you did pretty good. It's a whole lot better than I could've done. Hmm...I need to go practice more if I wanna get good. *scurries off to draw*

Thanks ^^ And yeah, I really needed to get it done ^^; The field was a pain to draw. As was the grass >.<

Have fun drawing!
