Description

Dedicated to *elpinoy, because he's badass. This picture would not have been complete without his incredible patience, wisdom, advice and constant urging. :hug: Thanks, Chester, for pushing me this far. :)

This is Raven, my beloved OC.

I've been wanting to challenge myself for quite some time, and I finally did it. Here's my first go at lineless artwork/painting. It was friggen hard! And extremely time-consuming. I don't know how you people do it. HOW do you people do it?!

I also deliberately chose rather dramatic lighting this time round, cos I normally find it rather tricky.

I don't think I've ever worked this hard on a picture before; I was pushed to my very limits with this. And as tough as it was, I loved working on it. I've learnt so much from this piece, as well. I'm pretty happy with it.

Edit #3: THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR THE DD. :love: Thank you, thank you, thank you. This piece is very close to my heart, so I can't even begin to tell you how much I appreciate this.

The human anatomy here seems flawless. The shoulders are a bit narrow but I think that's just your style. <img src="e.deviantart.net/emoticons/s/s…" width="15" height="15" alt=":)" title=":) (Smile)"/> You capture emotion in an amazing way, and use color and lighting to your advantage. I think that this is one of my favorites of your art, though i have only looked at a few pieces, i find that you are my new favorite artist on deviantart! I can't wait to look at more of your art! btw I just wanted to mention, I really love the way you do hair. Other artists don't give the hair enough attention! <img src="e.deviantart.net/emoticons/s/s…" width="15" height="15" alt=":)" title=":) (Smile)"/> kk BBS
