Casting Beyond The Moon


14 April 2013 at 11:35:15 MDT

Finished full illustration commission for SunTattooWolf! A bit of a different take on a stargazing theme, as the couple find themselves on an almost impossible crest of a moonlit waterfall. I had tons of fun with this one, now super addicted to painting water! Thanks Vantid for the waterfall critique, and to DimeSpin for the title. Also thanks to everyone in my stream chat this past week who gave me little critiques and helped keep me company!

Work in progress animated gif can be found in my tumblr - Clicky!

    Oh Wow! Crisp. CRISP! Very Crisp lighting, the sharpness really adds to the night time look. almost that classic Hollywood "moonlight" lighting. Very nicely done.

    I really enjoy the drama of the contrasting luminosity and shadow of the fur on the characters. Thank you for the WIP gif too - I'm surprised and impressed that you were able to realize your original concept so closely!

      Thank you so much! Getting the finish to look like the original thumbnail is getting easier as I practice, the thumbnail stage is essential to me now.
