:sun: I would appreciate if you commented before you favorite.

I really think I'm getting the hang of this background business. :shrug:

This is Daichi's true form. I'm sick of having all wolf ocs, not to mention that I don't have nearly enough poses to draw them all the time when most of my friends have wolf ocs! It's not because I'm one of those people who thinks wolves are overrated, I'm more like one of those people who likes to be different. XD

This picture took me so long though! :faint: The border alone took at least 3 hours! <XD But I'm actually really happy with how the entire thing came out. I was coloring a bit too lightly so it isn't quite as smooth as my last background picture, but I'm learning! I'll get better that's for sure.

Those trees on the left were really pesky. I messed up and it made me so mad I almost destroyed the entire picture! :O But I caught myself in time and they look decent enough now. The sunrise/sunset (whatever =/) doesn't look as smooth as I wanted it but I still think it's pretty. I'll have to work on that as well.

So tell me what you think and keep posted for the final versions of my elementals! They are quite predictable but I like them nonetheless. XD

*dies*

:stunned: Omg! Kelsey this is gorgeous! You did an amazing job on the coloring and background! It looks like it took you forever to complete this picture! And the design that borders the picture gives it a really nice touch! It’s so pretty! I really really love this picture>w< from the sunset to the perspective to the coloring, everything looks beyond amazing! You really got the perspective down in this picture^^ I defiantly have to favorite this one too!

Yeah I like this Daichi form better^^ It’s good to have different kind of animals for your Ocs instead of just wolves or cats (some people have it like that lol {which is up to them! they can draw what they want. that’s what is so wonderful about art! you can make it how YOU want it) ) different is always more aweosme thoughXD
The trees on the left look fine to me. I’m glad you didn’t throw it out>.< then I wouldn’t have been able to see this amazing picture of yours:(

you are defiantly improving! keep up the awesome work!

He's not really used anymore though. :giggle:

Wonderful job, the shading looks great and the background is AMAZING for drawing traditional! I'm not the best at drawing deer, so this is definitely a win!

I agree, If you payed a little more attention to the light source and where shadows would be, it would really make this picture "pop". You have a great concept, cute character, and a pretty border - why not top it all off with some beautiful yellow-orange lighting? ^^ Oh, by the way, your deer anatomy looks great! :D

Where abouts would the light-shading show up? Maybe you could highlight it on paint or something? ^^;

well do you know how to draw perspective? (with vanishing points?) if you make your light source the vanishing points, make lines from it to the surfaces. I hope that helps. I will send you a link............... here: [link] I hope that helps ^^; see how much depth it adds to the picture? your style is already adorable, you just need to push it to the next level :D

I haven't actually taken an art class before so I can't say I know what you are talking about. ^^; I am familiar with perspective however. ^^
My that helped a lot! The picture seems so much better now!

Do you think I could send you things occasionally if I'm having difficulties so you can help me with the shading? o3o

I think you should pay more attention to shading and lighting. Look at the background, there is the sun giving red or orange light, the water is crystal blue dispite of the colourful light around.

Anyway, I really like the character and black frame, so :+fav: keep up good work <3 and don't be angry on me... I just want to help you <3

Aww look! It's Bambi's Daddy! :XD:

Yeah... The more I think about it Im finding wolves are becoming boring because EVERYONE has their fursona as a wolf... I'm considering redesigning Irret again and changing her species to something more unique... :D

But cha... cute drawing, I love the pose and everything and you're getting pretty dang good at them backgrounds :XD:

That's awsome, but, on backrounds such as grass or trees, don't color too
smoothly. Why, because nothing is perfect, especially tree's and grass, :XD:.
Still, awsome picture, and that is just about the best border I've ever seen....:D
