I suck at titles, once again.

I've been working on and off on this piece for quite a while now. Experimented around a bit, and found out a way of coloring backgrounds I really like.

About the fairy~ Avani's pretty block-headed. D: Yeeeah. She's based off a junebug, so she acts like one.

All I can think is; "Congratulations, you punched the retard of bug society."
I spy tiny freckles on her shoulders <3
I can't really find anything to point out except that the shading on the big shroom is kinda odd, it looks like it has a completely different texture than the smaller ones. The smaller ones look smooth, but the big one looks kinda like it has ridges or something. I hope I've described it in a way fairly understandable what am I typing today lfdsjgksflsgkjf
Also, great job on the lighting! I love pictures with that time of day.

LOL. I love how retarded junebugs are. They're so adorable BECAUSE they're so dim. :XD: Yus, she has freckles on her face as well, but those are harder to see due to the dark shading on it. D:

The bigger shroom's actually meant to have the ridges, since it's older and more weather-worn. It does look kinda odd though, as the buttons don't have the ridges that the older shroom does. D:

Hah, thanks! :D I reeeeally love pictures that have that contrast of color in them. I've noticed that when there's a yellowish/orange light, there's always blue/purple shadows to accompany that lighting. It's a pretty neat touch of nature. :D

Ah, sorry! I had this serious internal debate on the whole mushroom thing. I probably should have looked 'em up before commenting but fuq da police D:<

YES :heart:
I'm so envious of your colouring ability. -pouts-

I used no reference, actually. :XD: They proooobably don't look like the ridged one at all. I just went with it for a bit of extra texture thrown in.

For the coloring thing? All I have to say is PRACTICE PRACTICE PRACTICE. Practice really does make perfect. Also, when you get into college, take some art courses. The one I'm in is REALLY helping out. After the class is over, I'll be taking pictures of all the drawings I did and submit them in a huge sketch dump or something.

The best advice I have gotten for drawing boobs is to treat them like water balloons. They act pretty much the same as water balloons, so it makes it easier to think about them like that. Also? Practice practice practice. There are times when you will hate art, but try to push through those times and just practice! :D

Also, don't be afraid to observe people. Sure, you'll look like the creep who undresses people with your eyes, but hey! It helps. :XD:
