There's so much to love in this picture. The sky, the characters interaction, the wings, the grass and the color :D

how did you learn to colour like that? It's amazing

Just a lot of practice and experimentation! My first coloured pencil drawings were really terrible. It took quite a few years to develop a technique that I liked, and I hope to keep improving. :)

Ha ha, I can't take much credit for those! That's all =FireMaster13's drawing. I can't draw wings and feathers for crap. :lol:

The colours look fantastic, I really like the way you have given shading to the background and how your technique gives such texture to the wings and fur.

Thank you! I'm glad that you liked it. Although I think I owe most of the drawing to =FireMaster13. Her linework is just amazing. I can't draw wings, feathers, and anthro anatomy nearly as well as she does. :)

again, i really wanted to write a thoughtful comment on this one too, because it'a fantastic! The colors are so warm and soft and remind me of just pure happiness. the coloring and shading of the wings is unbeatable! and the sky and moutains blend so well together and look gorgeous. even though it wasn't your lineart, you did an amazing job at helping convey the emotions through the color. love it, awesome awesome job!!!

...and the coloring is Gorgeous. So much detail and with colored pencils no less. How long did it take you, if I may ask? Beautiful lighting and sunset. I find sometimes when I color line art I lose the expression of the characters...but that didn't happen here. A beautiful image and successful collaboration I'd say. ^_^

( I found you through comments you made on another person's page who was stealing artwork (unfortunately...). But I liked your icon and your articulate calm statements so I thought I'd swing by. And I'm glad I did. See, everything happens for a reason I guess!)

MoonsongWolf Featured By Owner Mar 26, 2011
Oh, yes, I know what you mean about losing the expressions! Especially if you are printing the image out to colour, since the printing process tends to minimize or completely erase the finer details. I find that it's helpful to work on the details with the original lineart file open, if possible. That way, you'll be able to recognize and duplicate the original detailing, if need be. As for how long it took, I would guess somewhere between 10 and 20 hours total. I'm a very slow colourist when it comes to pencils, and I worked on this in little blocks for about a month... which probably makes it take twice as long, but at least it doesn't kill my hand! :lol:

Oh, I have a good idea which person that was. It's a shame that, no matter how rational your statements are when confronting some people, you still get the "I DIDNT STEAL ANYTHING!!1" response. :lol:

Oooo thanks for the colored pencil tips O_O I still have mine, and they stare at me with puppy-eyes while I paint...making me feel guilty.

Maybe I'll print some lineart and play..although I don't think it will turn out like your image :D Rock on.

Eeep this came out so well! those colors are STUNNING! I'm blown away by all the colors EVERYWHERE. Like all those greens and reds and oranges in the GRASS and that gorgeous AMAZING sky! Og I bet this took you forever! I love the blues and oranges in the rock formations SO MUCH wow. And the yellows and oranges in the sky are STUNNING omg. ad I love all the details on the two characters. Those little strokes in the feathers and all the fur is AMAZING. I'm really blown away by how amazing this is. You two do AMAZING things together WOW <3333

Thanks! I had a blast with all of the colours... especially the purples. Although blue is my favourite colour, I'm a sucker for adding purple into my work. I totally have to give most of the credit for the feather details to =FireMaster13. I have no clue how she had the patience to draw all of those! :lol:

On an unrelated note, I sent your money order out last... Monday or Tuesday, I forget which. So hopefully it will get to you soon, if not already. I would have noted you after I sent it, but my brain has been like a bowl of tapioca pudding for the past few weeks, and I can't remember shit.

I did indeed get it! It snuck into a dark corner of my car when I wasn't looking, and I didn't notice until today, but I have it now! Thank you so much for the extra $5 btw! I'll totally make it as awesome as I possibly can! <3333

Aw, you'll get better with time and practice! You just need to find a technique that suits your style well. You should have seen my first coloured pencil works... they were terrible. :lol: And I still have a lot to learn.
