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
