I love your lighting here, and just as was with your first sketch, the emotions show through so well! The more "primitive" or traditional, natural look to the room - the gnarled wooden stand, bed, and chair - really add to the scene and story, and I love your fur texturing as well. <3
It's always amazing to me (even after I've drawn so many pictures) how things come to life once you add lighting and background, and start to think about the textures of objects (including fur on the characters themselves!). I'm amazed that you noticed all the things I hoped for in terms of composition!! I was focusing so much on their expressions and the feel of the environment, as well as making the atmosphere something that complemented the characters' emotions ... it's beyond wonderful to hear you point out all of those things!! And approve of them nonetheless!! c':
Obviously by this point you know how much I admire your talents, so it really means a lot! ♥
It is neat how much you can affect the mood and feel of the art once you start adding things! I really love all those details, it tells a strong story without any words! I hope others notice your efforts as well, it's a really great image! <3
So the bottom right is the finished one? Wow! Were do I begin? I guess as of right now all I can say is "Holy shit" This is unbelievably, undeniably amazing Kat. "Dddaammmmnnnnnn" also crops up as I closely inspect the copious amounts of detail put into ever aspect of both characters and background... her fur, I just want to touch it, it looks so fluffy. The background is above and way beyond what I expected and imagined way past it!
It's flat out perfect, just like the other two. I think I also need to give you a hug, not just any hug but an ethnic hug
Oh no, the finished one is even MORE finished!! c':
My tablet's been freaking out on me these past couple of days; it's been quite upsetting to say the least ... but these comments encourage me more than you know!! I really care about these characters, and giving you a finished work that captures what you were imagining; so it's important to me to impress you with my attention to detail and everything!! ♥ I'm so glad I've been doing a good job so far, especially now as I put the finishing touches on everything!
And I will gladly receive your ethnic hug. Quite gladly!!! :'3
It's going on eight/nine years!! And I've dropped it way too many times to keep track of ... one time it actually split open (luckily nothing happened to it; it was just the casing coming apart), and I thought my life was over. Literally. That may sound like an overreaction; and of course it wasn't as bad as losing a loved one. But it was pretty darn bad! Luckily, it ended up being fine and quite fixable ... and obviously it's held up pretty well!!
Gosh, I've worked so hard to get everything perfect, and it's been so lovely to work with your ideas I love every second I spend with those paintings, and it honestly warms my soul to hear your approval ♥
Just like me and my Legos, my Dad wanted me to surrender all my ever so loved blocks of plastic to my sister and step-sister, my answer was very straight forward and it included lots of flailing about but I don't think he understood the sentimental value So I know 100% what you mean by loving it so much. But at least I got to ninja back my Star Wars ones back.
You have worked crazily hard on them, and I honestly think no one else could have made them just like you have.
Sentimental value is a serious thing that is not to be messed with!! Sometimes objects come to symbolize so many other things, and I don't think that's materialism. I think it's more the symbol of a sensitive soul ♥ c:
I really care about making these pictures perfect for you, because you're just such a sweet person and I know I haven't known you very long, but I LOVE YOU SO MUCH oh my god ♥ ;.; BECAUSE YOU'RE SO NICE AND WONDERFUL. When that tsunami happened near the Solomon Islands, I was all freaked out because I had no idea where in Australia you lived, and I didn't want a tsunami to come get you ... x.x;;;
You heard about that huh? Those people are going to have to leave those island in the next few decades if the water keeps going what it's doing right now. Dw I lives ages away from there, I live in the only place in Australia that anyone seems to want to live in, Sydney, the only thing that could get me is bordem from waiting in traffic xD
