MGC - Fireflies by Neomae MGC - Fireflies by Neomae
My entry for this month's MGC.

I chose the topic of February 2007: Canon Romance.
The scene was inspired by the song "Fireflies" by Owl City.

This piece took pretty much time and I found the light effects and the background really difficult. I'm thankfull for every hint! =)

Brooklyn, Katana (c) Greg W.

EDIT: OMG, I can't believe it! This picture won Most Artistic in the last MGC!! I'm so happy!! :boogie:

I love the details! Those powerful wings and epic feet. Their expressions are perfect as well, warm and relaxed. You csn feel how comfortable they are with each other.
Lovely work

Katana's horn arrangement backwards and her beak looks too much like Brooklyn's.

Thank you!

I did a basic pencil sketch and then I did the lines in Photoshop. After that I did a basic coloring on a seperate layer and several shading layers set to multiply with different opacities. Then I did the background and the fireflies.

Brooklyn's official mate has a beak and I drew her official appearance (see SLG Gargoyles Clan Building Vol 2).
(Before there was an official continuation of the story, the fanfiction project TGS introduced a character named Sata as Brooklyn's mate. This couple did get a lot of fanart. But she is not canon.)

I wonder how many people refuse to believe that Brooklyn finds a mate?

You are a wonderful artist ^w^

This what I love. I love them both together and being in nature. I wish I can go to the evergreens and camp out there. Sadly I'm a city dude and you inspire me to be more in touch with nature. ^_^

i remember reading through literally every piece of information i could find on gargoyles and trust me i took the time to look for it, especially brooklyn. i like how you strayed away from the traditional style they were drawn in and added your own twist to it (makes them look more realistic). i dont know anything about katana but i have seen her in other's artwork (but without a beak). you did a pretty good conception for fireflies by owl city. maybe if you get another chance to enter it in a competition you should.

Wings that look like they actually could carry them! Score bonus points for you my dear. ^_~
Beautiful work and I see this is before Brook looses his left eye so he looks less battered, always a plus.
I guess the designers thought he was too bishi-boy. ^_^;

If I have one issue with this pic, it is that Brooklyn's tailbase is a wee bit too thick.
