habitat by Reluin habitat by Reluin
This was one of the unused ideas I had for a contest, reused as a cell-shading experiment! I'm so happy with how much my speed has increased, little pieces like this only take ~3 days now if I work hard c:
One of the succulents(plants) in the foreground is a plectranthus. I got one the other day and it's one of the best things ever, if you rub the petals it smells like lime !!

Posted on my tumblr here!

So cool to see a depiction of a woman immersed in the verdant world of her own art and mind. Thanks for posting. Sensational and evocative piece.

Great art!
twocupsofbancha Featured By Owner Oct 27, 2017  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I can absolutely see this working as part of an illustrated storybook, how beautiful! The ambient is so immersive, and the whole image brings out a cheerful imaginary nostalgia. The succulents are precious details, I never knew there was something like the plectranthus! Keep up the lovely work!
Kirasel Featured By Owner Aug 11, 2017
Prettyyyy.  I love the succulents everywhere, pretty sure I have one of these at home actually.  Overall it looks like a very peaceful calming scene.

Makes me feel great :33 it's beautiful
NandudaLama Featured By Owner Apr 18, 2017  Hobbyist General Artist
It's fantastic! Love everything in this illustration!! <3 :) Do you use some texture upon the drawing or it's all becauce of the brushes? 
Reluin Featured By Owner Apr 24, 2017
Thanks! I think for this image there was a texture for the wallpaper behind the character, and a paper/noise texture over the whole image, but that's it! Otherwise this was just the normal round brush.
NandudaLama Featured By Owner Apr 26, 2017  Hobbyist General Artist
Thank you :) :) it's a very inspiring drawing! I guess it's all in the atmosphere and the details, but the technique is also very beautiful...
JohannaEgeria Featured By Owner Mar 5, 2017  Hobbyist Traditional Artist

Emerald-Wolf13 Featured By Owner Jul 16, 2016
Heh, that's what my "man cave" would look like, except for more random mechanical bits. (nuts, bolts, wirenuts, etc.)  It would definitely have books, art stuff, and cacti. :)
evix77 Featured By Owner Jul 16, 2016  Hobbyist General Artist
I have always wanted a room like this! Some place to do my art and store my books, skulls/bones, and plants. Love the wildlife in this- the dragonflies, lizard, it's all so beautiful!
Reluin Featured By Owner Jul 19, 2016
Thanks so much, I'm glad it came across to you that way! Same here (:

Reluin Featured By Owner Jul 19, 2016

BriMerry Featured By Owner Jul 16, 2016  Hobbyist Filmographer
So great! I wish i can have a room like that
Reluin Featured By Owner Jul 19, 2016
haha, me too! :')
Elmithian Featured By Owner Jul 16, 2016
This would be one of the best places to either write or draw in (if the smell of the flowers isn't too strong that is). It would be near maximum inspiration zone just by being there. =D
Kradath Featured By Owner Jul 15, 2016
Here's my money. Now give me ten like this xD.
leoangere Featured By Owner Jun 10, 2016

That is a really wonderful room! Although I think the dragonflies could be a little distracting. :)

I find it so hard to pick a favorite when it comes to your gallery, but I really feel like this one relates to me. I love your work!
honardust Featured By Owner Mar 29, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I spend my last week staring and understanding this work. I literally zoomed on every single object and tried to figure out every thing about rendering to the characteristic of them. I love your work! You are my new heroin!
You will be seeing a lot of my comments in the future! you are absolutely magnificent!
