Oooh this is beautiful!  I love the limited color palette; both the fact that you limited it, as well as the colors themselves.  I'm a sucker for fancy antlers, and the way you've done them here is just fantastic.  Stunning lighting effects as well :heart:

Ah thank you so much!! I'm still in love with the colour scheme. Funnily enough, one of the biggest critiques I tend to receive is that my palettes are too limited. Personally I tend to prefer my works the more limited they are, that was especially true in this image. I can't take credit for the idea behind the antlers, that's all menuli but I'm so thrilled with how they turned out! They were really tough to do but I think the end result was more than worth it. :love: Thank you so much once again, apologies for the late reply. :tighthug:

No worries on the lateness, I get it :D  Yeah I like limited color palettes; it seems like more of a challenge to still get it to look good without using a ton of colors.  It can be equally challenging to try to do an all-encompassing rainbow color palette as well...just depends on what the artist wants to do!  Your limited one definitely works here ^.^  And yeah, those antlers Fanboy Emote

I've left this in my inbox for a MONTH so that I could get around to looking at it on my bigger screen--and boy, was it worth it. The details and the painting in this are absolutely incredible. You took no shortcuts, and it really shows! Lovely, lovely, lovely :love:

omg jas get out of here 😂😭
You are way too kind, I am thrilled to hear it was worth it but damn yo, that's a privilege right there.
I never feel satisfied if I've taken shortcuts, I'm always left with regrets. Hearing that others can see it too is both terrifying and satisfying. :love: 

Thank you so much :tighthug:

Thank you so much Wesley! I'd had the idea in my head for a while but I could never find stock that fit just right and unfortunately I let it deter me. I'm glad I stuck it out and forced myself to make some stock work.
Yessssss! Probably (lmao..definitely) not the most realistic light but I am in looove with these kinds of scenes!! Thanks for your continued support. :tighthug:
