Commission for *SnowGuardian :heart:

Loved working on this. The commissioner gave me complete freedom; something I am so incredibly thankful for. :aww:

WIP can be found on my Tumblr!

The background was heavily referenced from this beautiful stock image. I've wanted to paint it so much, but never had the right piece to do so. Now I finally got the chance and I'm so happy! :D

I don't know why, but there's something about it that...scares me. ._.
Imagining this scenerey...a silent, cold area and then this demonic creature in the middle of it, staring at the sky.
Dunno'...it makes me shiver. XD"

So, yeah, I really like this combination! Nothing else could've worked that well with this character! It just fits!
The character, of course, is very well drawn too! I really love how you drew the eyes. :D

Hmm, indeed, I can certainly understand that thought. Something about being in a colourless place, all alone...kinda scary to think!

Thank you, dear! :D

Eh, you're entitled to your opinion. I just happen to disagree. :) The commissioner was happy with this, and to me? That's the only person that matters. :heart:

This is very awesome little one. Always nice when a person give you full control. You can feel the cool wind blowing from the way the mane and tail are being blown back and the snow around the feet is moving. Love how there is kind of this grey somber feeling about it. Also love how it matches the creatures color. Very cool picture. Your stuff is always so amazing.

Have most wonderful day! :heart: Whisks some :suns:shine and blue skies yer way! :glomp::hug:

ooh you got commissioned to draw him too, I just finished drawing him yesterday :D
I love how the flowy tail and the mane looks, it fits so well with the windy looking background. I really like the way you've shaded this too, it's so seemingly simple however once you take a better look it's pretty detailed <3

Very lovely! I can see how much you enjoyed working on this piece.

I'm particularly in love with the look in his/her eyes--it's something that conveys the utter sense of vastness, loneliness, and endlessness all in one.

Thanks for sharing!
