New piece! :D

Been doing this ove the course of a few weeks, but took less time than a lot of pieces I've done before. Was a really good chance to study foliage and composition a bit more, as well as learning to draw rocks and tree foliage. A whole lot of fun to do for sure! :)

Edit: Thank you ^PolyMune for the DD, it's made my day completely! :D I hope everyone enjoys this as much as I did making it, thank you for all the favourites and support! Hey and if you want to see pieces like this in the future, give me a watch! ;D *gets shot for self-promotion*

Thank you so much! :D The composition and base shapes played a big part in this, since detail is few and far between. Once the bulky shapes, positions and lighting are all worked out, the artwork becomes stronger in foundations. At least that's what I find, but I'm still studying! xD Thanks for the compliment by the way, many hugs! :hug:

Ahh I gotcha. Basically I used Photoshop CS5 and the default brushes, Adonihs Brush Pack V.2 and also some Winter Brushes too.

aww yes I'm a big fan of soft art. Unfortunately, I can't draw that soft myself :/

Spikings Featured By Owner May 28, 2013  Professional Digital Artist
I couldn't draw softly for quite a long while tbh, but it's just something that comes with practice, and persistance. Even in the times when you really don't wanna draw! xD But hey, you can definitely draw horses better than I can! :D Maybe that's something I should practice next... O.O

:iconweidenhof:
Weidenhof Featured By Owner May 29, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
nah, my drawings aren't soft at all :D
I surely need more practice :noes:

Haha, what if I told you that the ONLY thing I can draw are horses ;D so don't complain about you missing horsey-drawing practice :D

Spikings Featured By Owner May 29, 2013  Professional Digital Artist
Pfft, I dunno I mean a lot of people specialise in drawing one thing, you just happened to go with horses. :D But heck, I find them the devil to draw, let alone if someone was riding one. :noes:

:iconweidenhof:
Weidenhof Featured By Owner May 29, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
yeah, that's right ^^ I'm practising drawing landscapes at the moment (need these for the horses :XD: ). I think it's VERY difficult to draw animals (expect horses). I'm quite good at drawing humans, too, but animals are evil :D

:iconspikings:
Spikings Featured By Owner May 30, 2013  Professional Digital Artist
Ahhhaa I see, landscapes are weird. I mean I always found them difficult to do, but I must be doing something right if I got a DD for one xD I think it's the sky that's the hardest though, because clouds are just weird. xD
Animals are indeed evil to draw, for me especially horses! xD And maybe ostriches too... :0
