Ovanfor molnen.... by Vekke Ovanfor molnen.... by Vekke
I kept listening to this song as I was drawing this D:

Anyway, commission done for mithril07 over at FA :D I had a loooot of fun with this, and I always say this, but I need to do backgrounds/environments more often. It's really fun, just time consuming sighs~

;o; This is so beautiful, I love your lineart technique so much I would love to see how you do it, and the way you show expression on your characters, you are an inspiration ok, this is the level I want to be at in the near future!
Your backgrounds are also so simple but they have such an awesome effect, they add so much to the character~

adjfbsjdnj so much love
Thank you so much! ;_;

For the lineart-- I work pretty big for finished artwork, about 3000 pixels wide or tall, which helps me a lot. And for this one in particular, I'm pretty sure I used a brush whose density (or flow if you use photoshop) corresponds with pen pressure, and just went over my sketch C: I've been working on pinpointing (and refining) the method to the madness that is my lineart so that I can make a tutorial about it, and while the plan is to make it deal a lot with theory that can be applied to any style, it'll probably inadvertently contain some of my individual process as well :D

I love the colors in this piece! I would love to be in a place like that, great job with the BG :D
So gorgeous. <3 Love that he's just glancing over his shoulder. That mane is perfect, I love the style it's in! And the background is great, it's not too overdone, which lets you focus on the character a lot more. :3
