Behold! A building! :ohstarelegasp:

I'm not on very good terms with drawing buildings or scenery, but if I want to learn, I have to try, right?

I may have got some inspiration from Overlook Mansion.

love it- especially because the two lights up top look like eyes

This is fantastic! *-* I love environmental pieces such as this. The Overlook Mansion has always been a favored level of mine in DS. :)

Thank you, dear! Neko Emoji-27 (Being kawaii) [V2] Oh, yeah, the Overlook Mansion was very lovely, and the soundtrack of the place was melancholic and beautiful.

Thanks! Meow Blue There are some things in it I like and some things I don't, but overall, I think it's bearable. :XD:

Ha, it's great c'mon! I understand artists are their own worst critics usually.

Heh, I guess you're right. x3

*sigh* I wish I had time to write atm, but I have way too many school assignments to do right now .__. I shouldn't actually have even time to draw, but when I'm stressed I just start drawing so I can get stressed about something else wut. Maybe it's just this mood that makes me pay so close attention to things I'm not that pleased with in my art.

I love how you work shadows and light so muuuuuch ;3;! The texture for the sky is pretty great, I love the grainy, hazy, cloud feel ;3;! FFFFF, AND THE COLORS. x3 Good on ya for practicing!

Thank you!! ;3; I almost posted it as black & white, but then I tried to put there some blue... *__* dark blue heart bullet :bluehearts: blue heart bullet 

Everything looks better with blue.

FFFFFF, bluuuuuuuuuue~. It really is a great color for monochromatics in my opinion - and even better in pieces like this where it dominates but doesn't completely distract from the other colors. Like, it's perfect for giving that moon, window, the ocean, and those little spots of light marking a village or a town on the other side of the bay the chance to pop. :>

Aww you always write so nice comments ;3;

And I just realized I hadn't even watched you yet omg Shocked Well that's fixed now!

'Cause you're marvelous and work hard to make beautiful art, you deserve it ;3;!

XD Aw! Thank you! I mostly just do random pencil sketches now when I do post - so probably nothing special unless you're flipping through the scraps section x"D.

Panda Emoji-10 (Blush) [V1] omg I'm so happy and flattered I can't even, that kind of sweet comments make me look past my flaws. I tend to post my art at the moment I like them, but then I see all the mistakes and don't think they are pretty, so all this positive feedback I get makes me feel very confused.. but I really, really appreciate every nice comment and fave!

Haha, I also watch for journals and status posts! :D

I think most people who want to get better feel that way. You feel pride in what you do well one day, and then maybe a week later you start to see the flaws. It's healthy to be critical of yourself to improve - just don't let it get you down ;>. You really do have some beautiful work and the way to see it is this: "If you make good work now, you'll make great work later!" Plus, your handle on rich colors is something that people either click with immediately or they struggle with for a long time - you truly have the eye for it!

Maybe I'll be better about updating my journals then! X'D!

oooh very pretty! this piece has a very nice sort of ghostly feel to it, love how dark this image is with only light coming from the moon and a couple of windows. gotta say the lighting from the windows are very nicely done! :O 
hehe I can relate there; buildings and scenery are not my strongest points :XD: but I do really wanna get better at them :'D
MyEpicRilla's avatar

Thank you for your kind words! ^-^

I got tired of always drawing an empty, boring background for my Garrett characters, so I decided that I really need to practice some scenery. :XD:

You're welcome ! :D

awh yeah I can relate :XD: and I think the backgrounds you did are still very nice, simple but effective, but it would be really cool to see you do more complex scenery as well :D lol I wanna draw Garrett again one day.. when I look at that drawing now the anatomy and perspective is so cringy :'D
MyEpicRilla's avatar
MyEpicRillaHobbyist Digital Artist
Yeah, one day I will do a more complex picture, with a decent background and all! I swear I will do it! Someday..! XD

Oh, I think you should definitely draw Garrett again! Not because your previous piece wasn't good (it is good!), but simply because there's always room for some more Thief art. :XD:
