I MADE A BACKGROUND OMG


It's Garrett once again, entering places through anything but doors, because doors are for amateurs. Watch your cat flaps, folks. And get some glass for your windows. 

The guard down in the yard seems blissfully unaware what's going on. Lazy 


2-3 hours, I think. It was supposed to be speedpaint but I got a bit carried away. I'm probably going to colour this later.

I absolutely love the black and white. The tone is very ghostly and suiting for the image. Excellent work!

This doesn't even need coloring, its already perfect.. maybe some real dark shades of blue for background and dark desaturated brown for sneaky taffer's cloak, but overall, its good as it is now :P

Thank you for your kind words (and all those faves I think I've fainted.)! I actually forgot about colouring this, but now I kinda want to do it, or at least see how it would look with colours. Though I like this very much like this too.

iik apua mitä xD black heart bullet

Oon kyllä harkinnut tarjoutuvani kuvittajaksi jotakin fanimissionia varten, mutten ole sitten uskaltanut postata esimerkkikuvia mihinkään. Löytävät kumminkin mun fanfictionin ja säikähtävät. xD


Mutta kiitos hei oikeesti ;3; mikä ihana ja sydäntä lämmittävä kommentti ;__;

ansaitset sen sataprosenttisesti :hug: on ihanaa nähdä sun töitä jotka tuo vanhat tunteet pintaan koska tietää ettei thief koskaan saa sitä jatkoa mitä pitäis ;__; 

xD noh, ehkä vielä joku päivä uskaltaudut postaamaan niitä, vain idiootit ei pitäisi niistä :]

ja tajusin juuri miten epäilyttävältä mun edellinen kommentti kuulostaa xD toivottavasti et saanut elinikäisiä traumoja xD

awws ;__; :stronghug:

Olen kyllä ihan helvetin onnellinen siitä, että Thieffillä kuitenkin on suht aktiivinen (vaikkakin pienehkö) fanikunta. Tänäkin vuonna on kuulemma tulossa aivan tajuttoman upeita fanimissioneita ja -kampanjoita -- odotan niitä enemmän kuin mitään suuren budjetin pelejä atm. :D

Haha ei huolta, en minä niin vähästä traumatisoidu xD
Silena-89's avatar
totta, totta. valitettavasti vain en saa niitä toimimaan koneellani :/
ja joo, suurin osa ison budjetin peleistä tuntuu olevan kyllä täyttä paskaa xD mutta ehkä hyvä ettei tarvii kovin usein maksaa niistä ku ne on niin hervottoman kalliita :p

FFFFFFFF, still in love with the shadows and mood you put into these ;3;! Don't know if I say that for every piece or not enough, but it's the truth~! The buildings in the distance and then the windows shedding a little light with the guard really help to give it some interesting depth! ;3;

Thank you! ;3; I want my art to arouse emotions, what ever they may be, and I sure know what gets a reaction out of me; I'm kind of a nervous person, so I tend to paint stuff that I personally find intimidating. xD It's a bit problem though sometimes, since it's good to practice with ordinary stuff (I mean, some basic things and shapes and lighting), but such things don't interest me enough and/or don't stir up any emotions, and thus I'm not putting any effort into them and it kinda slows my improving process. 3: But at least I'm aware of it!

That's honestly half the battle right there, just knowing where you can improve. Don't put yourself down too much though, because you're already making some marvelous work :D! You can only get better from here :>! It's also admirable that your aim is to make people feel from your work - that right there also shows a lot of heart!

Thank you for making more awesome art of our favorite thief! I really love the background on this one--it makes me think of the end cutscene in the first game. I think something about those blustery greys out the window just reminds me of snow. :)

Ha! My last three pictures have all been completely Garrettless -- how have my watchers survived? XD Thank you for your kind words, friend. ^-^ I just can't help myself, I'm always sketching hoods and cloaks so it doesn't take much for wild Garrett to appear. :XD:

Ooooh, nice! Love this with all the silhouettes and of course the light flaring from the windows is incredible. :) I of course love all Thief art :D

Thank you! :D I'm just so happy that I managed to create that background <3 ;__; I see some serious progress!
Bazzkorg's avatar
Awesome! Yeah, I think you do a great job. And practice makes perfect. I don't mind being an audience for your art :)
