Art Trade: Arasteia by Vivyi Art Trade: Arasteia by Vivyi
*EDIT* Small fix with the hood. Carry on c:

I drew :iconarasteia: 's character Sedra! :D She was very fun to draw <33 I enjoyed painting her hair and her face! :D I worked on making more details in my drawing... tried to keep it in my style, but at the same time painting a portrait of a character. I enjoyed working on her overall, and maybe one day would love to read the story she comes from! :love:

I didn't have a clue what to do for the background, so I mainly did a bunch of steampunk related stuff. :XD: I wasn't feeling a real background for this one... sorry :c I've been lazy lately, haha;; :XD:

BTW: I'm feeling better. This picture put me back into gear~  I don't know what came over me... but I hope it doesn't happen again. OTL (It's rather embarrassing... )

Thank you <3 I tried my best on this picture, and it's proven to be one of my favorites!~ Arasteia has really fun characters to draw :D

Oh my god, that is so so so gorgeous O.O 
Bro hug  Thank you so much, I can't even begin to express how much I love this! You captured her perfectly and I barely even told you anything about her :D You are amazing, seriously. You absolutely nailed her outfit, those bracers and that bodice are so beautiful, even more than I imagined for her! 
Haha, you can read her story one day! Editing is coming along well, hopefully I'll have it ready for reading by the end of this year. 
Sorry I didn't give you info on the background, my bad >.< But it looks really good! 
Thank you again, and I'm keen to get started on my half of the trade :D

You're so welcome~ :heart:

Thaaaank you so much <3333 Haha, I'm glad you like her! :D She was very fun to draw <333 I tried to keep close to your description as much as possible. I'm sorry I couldn't draw a better pose for her... I wanted to do something a little more action-y but I don't have the art skills for that, lmao :XD: It's been forever since I've drawn action poses...

Yaaay~ I can't wait x3 I bet it's going to be really awesome :heart:

Aww, totally okay <33 But thank you :)

It's no problem :heart: Good luck! I can't wait to see the results! :love:

You're very welcome :D You did really well, and it's fine about the pose. She's not really someone I can picture doing some kind of fancy pose, to be honest XD Action poses are hard, I know, so it's completely fine!

So gorgeous! :love: I can see that you're getting better at anatomy all the time. I love how detailed this is. The background and colors work really well together here. You've done a wonderful job. It's nice to see that you've started drawing again. :heart: I love it!

Awww Thaaaank you :heart: c:  It's probably because I used a reference for this one... I was needlessly frustrated with figuring out how to draw a pose for this... :XD: I ended up going with something easy. I think I improved rapidly with coloring... I'm more careful with what I want out of it now. It takes me longer to do (This picture took me 2 days to do ) but it's worth it in the end.

You're welcome. ^^ References can really help a lot. Nothing wrong with easy, sometimes it's best to do that to avoid getting too frustrated. I agree, your coloring is getting better all the time. It's good to take your time with it and pay attention to detail though. The end result is gorgeous. :heart:
