Picture for Jess E. Owen :iconelementaljess:, owner of Shard, the character from the picture :) She has send me her gryphon themed books and I have drawn her this image. There will be more artwork done for her soon ^^ Please visit her page for more information:

The character may not belong to me but I got quite attached to this image. I wanted to show here my love for gryphons & pretty landscapes.

I'm really busy since the beginning of January. I have passed all my exams during finals. I started to work full time in February. I have written half of my thesis too... I'm kinda stressed but I have to manage, only 3 months left till the end of my studies. Work is really cool and rewarding, although combining it with last 10th semester will be pain in the ass.

It's why I titled it "Hope", because I hope everything will be good with finishing my education.

wow, i seriously wish i could do things like this. i use paint tool sai, if you do too could you help me a bit?
Red-IzaK's avatar
I use photoshop 6 and Creative cloud to do so :)

To be honest, it's not the knowledge about the program, but the knowledge about the principals of art: composition, light, values, colours, anatomy, perspective. You can gain only by reading all of the things above + doing studies from real life  & photos.
Tsuki1313's avatar
thanks so much! do you think maybe in the future or some time you could help me out a bit with digital painting?
Red-IzaK's avatar
Well the whole topic is so broad that it cannot be described in one comment ;/ But I can recommend you an awesome book: Colour and light - guide for the realistic painter by James Gurney. It will help you to understand some of the basics really quickly
Tsuki1313's avatar
Thanks a lot!!!  :3  im gonna paint you a picture some time. do you want a specific character?
Red-IzaK's avatar
Yes, I do, but you don't have to paint anything for me. Try to learn new stuff day after day and it will be the best thing!
Tsuki1313's avatar
thanks again... lol omg your so much help! and so nice! i really want to paint you something :3   if you have a character you specifically want, send it to me
