Blue King by Heyriel Blue King by Heyriel
My part of a trade with ~diddleh c:
She wanted something with deer in the style of my other painting Purple Lady (failed in that point, can't recreate). I figured that Lady->King would be fitting, so I tried to implement a feeling of nobility into this one as well.

Stylistic inconsistency put aside, I'm extremely happy with this piece! -What do you guys think? Commenters are loved :meow:
----------
Working on it was fantastic; Once the colors were down and the face done, the fur was just alot of mindless wrist-movement. It's great being able to let your mind drift (listening to audiobooks eg) while still being productive~ :la:
The only true annoyance: Highly-intelligent!Me didn't realize painting on one layer might become a problem when she gets around to drawing the bg. Another lesson learned.

Next-in-line is lots and lots of painting/coloring practice a la *andreasrocha. Palette Challenge, Landscape Paintings, Game Envionment Fanart, maybe even some Screencap Speeds -hopefully this will further improve my color-choosing skills. :>

And so I make yet another super late comment OTL

I've liked the shading on this since I first saw it. It complements all the little details really nicely. :3
He really does look regal, too, with the angle and the background colour, and how stoic he looks.
And something I just noticed -- is that a little light shining through the thinnest part of his ear? :D

Also, is there any way I could get an un-watermarked copy? :}

Yay, I'm glad you like it! Don't feel forced to rush though:la:
Since I found out that the last unmarked piece I gave away ended up on some czech Harry Potter RP site, there won't be any images without signature from me, I apologize. The shadow could be removed though, so it's less intrusive/obvious looking :)

I'm doing a work experience placement this week so I haven't had much time but I'll try and spend my Saturday on it :) I haven't had the chance to draw for so long!
Yeah that should be fine, thank you! :D
Actually, could you email me a copy? Obviously, I'm not going to do anything with it apart from personal use but you'll know that if it does manage to get somewhere else on the internet, I'm the one to blame :) It's fine if you're not comfortable with that, I was just wondering..

Excellent! :) I especially like how you painted the ears with the light shining through.
A tricky effect to pull off. At least for me it is. ;p
Bravo.

The trick is the saturation: When light shines /on/ a surface the brighter colors will be greyish (desaturated). When it shines /through/ the colors will become saturated. Most noticable in plants and if you put your own fingers on a lamp -that's all there is to it :D
