Here in this Place by vantid Here in this Place by vantid
If you were a king
Up there on your throne
Would you be wise enough
to let me go?

Another live painting demo, this time full background, full body. What the hell is wrong with me. Created in Sketcher, a very limited java painting program. For :iconshadowdansere:

I was very inspired by :iconnambroth:'s work, and the photos by :iconrad-ix: and :iconscotto: on DA. Nambroth actually sketched the wings for me cause she is much faster at them than I am.

You can see the full size piece in Room 2 [link] if you are registered on ArtSpots.

Thank you to everyone who stopped by and kept me company!

This is a gorgeous piece. I love the colours and the composition, and also the focus; the background being slightly less clear than the foreground. Really nicely done.

Seconding the Cap, I love the lighting, especially in the foliage. Great stuff, especially considering you did this in the second half of a 13-hour drawing session.

You did this in Sketcher?! EGADS!!!! *worships you forever* I could never get a hang of Sketcher... you seriously must be some sort of art god. XDD

I can see the Nambroth inspiration, too. I actually thought it was one of hers until I clocked it... ^^; You did a wonderful job. It's so green and alive!
