[Closeup] - Sky-High (it's Charit!) (Free .PSDs!) by muddymelly <-- It's Charit**, who's in your corner!  [Steps] - Sky-High (free .PSD files!) by muddymelly Pink Heart Icon

*Please do lemme know if the steps are too blurry! Crisp and much larger steps are in your free Patreon package that everyone can freely download!

In titling this piece, I was reminded of a movie that my sisses and I haven't yet seen... Has anyone seen the Disney live-action film Sky-High (about superhero children?) (Despite existing in the U.S. since birth, I only first heard about when a netizen compared its cast to that of our beloved Boku No Hero Academia [My Hero Academia]... I'm even more behind the times than I thought I was!) 💦💦

**The tiny white floating thing in the artwork is indeed our digital girl Charit (original character,) born to cheer you on! Cheerleader Ruel Onionhead cheerleader - Onion head She's flying with really blobby birds (birbs? borbs? What's your favorite way to refer to round birds?) BEYBLADE, BEYBLADE, LET IT RIP!

(Oh my God, 'borbs'! I've never seen that before, I'm using that to refer to round birbs now!)
This is so pretty!The lighting looks amazing, and I love how Charit is just flying up with the birbs! The clouds look incredible, they appear shaped and more real, which I think I rarely see and I love that! The rays of light, shining down and lighting up Charit and the water below gives a beautiful touch to the picture, and I love the glow across the horizon!
Charit looks amazing!  She's so pretty, and I love how much detail there is on her. Her hair, eyes, outfit, all look really good.
And of course, the borbs (love that word now) flying about, the ones around Charit lighting up with the light on them, and the more shadowy birbs around the surface of the water.

I love this picture so much! It's so pretty!

Ahahaha, "borbs" (and "birbs") are such endearing words! Even though I've used these words incessantly since I learned them, their charm only intensifies with time... Especially now that it's winter in the Northern Hemisphere, and birds are becoming ultra-fluffy orbs to stay warm...!.:Bunny love:.  (Oh, which reminds of this touching comic that I think a Wiz like you would appreciate:… )

My heart dares to feel relieved when receiving your gracious words, especially about Charit!! nervous neko emoji nervous neko emoji nervous neko emoji -- who somehow ended up pixelated in areas! I shall smooth her pixels out next time! nervous neko emoji 

May borbs brighten your day, and also avoid poopin' on your car (yet another thing to send you - this one is rather silly: Neko Emoji-03 (Good Morning) 

I'm so, so, so happy that you like the picture!!!

"Borbs" has taken over my life. I can't help saying it in my head when I see one of those fluffy birbs. My favourite word now. lol That's a funny comic! Though, now I can't help but ask the question as well! Where do they go!?
haha Silky smooth pixels on Charit. I shall look forward to seeing super pretty art of Charit again! :D :D
lol Another hilarious picture, would be a nightmare to have that happen. That is one vain birb, I love it!
I look forward to seeing more art from you! I love it all!

Melly!!! It's been so long! *O* Happy New Year!! :hug:

This is breathtaking!! The scene is so calm and beautiful!
I've never seen Sky-High before, but drawing the character so tiny (or the environment so vast!!) makes the whole scene that much more awe-inspiring!!
It looks like the climax of a classic coming-of-age or slife-of-life film where the character finally finds the epitome of piece among the majestic clouds, on her way to the place the gods call home

I wish you a wonderful 2017 full of love, happiness and success!! :heart: :hug:

Destiny~!! Yes, it has been too long...! That realization hit me yet again when I went to your gallery and swooned over your latest paintings aaaa!!! 

I've always deeply loved your incredibly diverse styles... and I'd be remiss not to tell you that I love the way you grow as an artist. nervous neko emoji 

And...! Your uplifting correspondence has always parted the clouds and filled me with energy!! Neko Emoji-08 (Good Night) [V1] --> Neko Emoji-03 (Good Morning) 

Also, you fill my heart with relief (because of your very kind words about this piece's composition /)//////(\)

Oh, oh!! Your descriptions make me think of the beautiful ending of Disney's Hercules, when a godly Herc is welcomed back to Mount Olympus...! (Oh... I hope that wasn't a spoiler for anyone!) Now I've got the hit "I Can Go the Distance" in my head... Destiny, it's time to listen to a Didney Worl playlist :3c

AAAAA!! Your praise leaves me speechless! nervous neko emoji
I haven't had much time to draw the last few months and every time I start again it feels as if I have relearn
using my tablet again so it takes some extra effort to really get into it. I'm really happy that you like them! Knowing that
is very motivating! :hug:

The fact that you took the time to make it look amazing far away close up as well far away using your sense of detail is fucking outstanding! 

Great Job, seriously amazing job. Also I laughed because I was thinking the film Sky High when I saw your title too, I love that movie.
