Evening Glow by The-Hare

Every 2 years I redo this piece just to see how I've improved. Decided to take it a different direction this year with a blue day sky instead of sunset :3

YYYYES, bi-annual improvement pics. I've got one of these that I do too, I've really got to get cracking on mine. :U

This is such great picture, it's executed awesomely especially next to the older versions! First came digital colors (THAT YELLOW), then came detailing, then came motion and color. I think that 2013 version is the most dramatic, but you reeled it back in favor of real details and a sense of atmosphere. In this new version the fur flows in the breeze, and the land they look over has life-- if this has always been about "My Lands", you've finally nailed it!

The critique I have to offer this one would be to move the pond into the background, and perhaps add more figures (trees, animals, etc) to add a sense of scale. With the watering hole tucked into the lower right, the plains don't feel all that big. Moving the hills further away may also amplify this. :nod:

Gorgeous picture overall, man, it turned out gorgeous. I can't wait to someday see what the 2017 version looks like!

That yellow indeed xD I think I was actually trying to make him look gold but failed hard.

I'll see f I can fix that next time I have a bit of time. I think the plains are all on either 1 layer... Or something stupid like 50 S:

The background puts me in mind of some really famous oil painting...
