Beneath by Crickatoo Beneath by Crickatoo
Commission for :iconlani:, her character Vuate.

haha could you imagine if hair actually reacted to emotions like that. It would be like anime. Someone says "Boo!" and all of a sudden your hair is going crazy :giggle:. I'm a mane fanatic, what can I say :XD:

God, ~whirl-wind wasn't kidding. This is probably the most fun I've ever had drawing a character. ~lani, props for having such a cool character! I had an absolute blast drawing this. :] can you tell?

In whirl's picture of him [link] he looked so at home in the water, so I had to draw him messing around with water too XD. Whether he is drawing forth that pretty glowing something or a little spooked because it's coming up beneath him, I will leave up to the viewer :D

I'm trying to render clouds a little differently especially with texturing, let me know what you think. :]

To those who requested a print: As this is a commission, the only print I will be making will be for Lani. Sorry!

Character Đ ~lani
artwork Đ me `CricketWings

I watch the speedpaint of this on youtube all the time. I watch it everytime i need inspiration! The song helps too haha. This is such a beautiful drawing, I envy your skills :D Just wondering, are you using any downloaded brushes or just the regular photoshop brushes? Im wondering cause i just got photoshop, and I am going to order a tablet, but my photoshop wont let me ad brushes, so im wondering if i can make great works of art with out the brushes. :P

Wow thank you so much!! I feel unworthy or something, haha but I really appreciate it :) especially since I have artists that I love and have a similarly inspirational effect on me. So thanks :D

I actually primarily use the default airbrush in Photoshop, so you are in luck! It's my favorite brush :D. I have made my own here and there but mostly I always fall back on the airbrush.
