Commission for SparraWingshard. :D

They showed me the character they wanted and just let me do whatever I pleased. Love it when I'm given freedom! I can really go wild and have fun with ideas. Went for an autumnal theme as that seemed to fit with the character's colours. :heart:

Details can be seen here!

Wow :heart: I just love the Fall scheme :) it fits so nicely with the character, and im in love with how the fur look on said character. It looks so soft, especially the chest fluff <3 And the way the eye stands out from the rest of the picture really makes you focus on them and notice how beatuiful they are <3

But i must say my all time favorite part is all the texture and value you have in the bushes/grass on ether side of the bridge. The hard bridge really contrasts nicely with the bushes and makes them pop <3

All in all i miss seeing your art so much :heart: you truely are an amazing inspiration :)

Autumn! Oh, such wonderful colors! *_* :heart:
And...holy crap the water! Oh, the water! I have no way to describe it, just that it looks like WATER! It's fantastic! *_*
The grass...ah, well... fantastic like each time. 8D And now I especially love those things in the foreground of which I've forgotten the name. 8D"

The character looks lovely, actually I could now easily imagine a shower of golden leaves falling down...the pose would be perfect for it.
So, yup, the character looks great! Once again the fur and the shading...are AWESOME! 8D

I now really want to have autumn here... ;_;

I love the tones used in this~ it's all very autumn-y and fiery with the reds and oranges~
And that little character on the bridge is epic~ He looks like a phoenix that isn't on fire :3

Damn woman, that's amazing <3 The plants are all SO detailed and fine, and the sizing perspective is really well done. I also love that you used warm colors, because they're rather neglected in the art world these days ;u; Your anatomy with the character's really nice too! I love all of the texture in his...her...body. xD <3 Lovely details in EVERYTHING, really :heart:

This one's really good. I especially like the pose. It reminds me of those paintings of Adam/Eve, which fits with the title, and it makes the character seem more human, like it's actually unusual for him to be nude. Usually that's not the case with anthropomorphic animals that aren't wearing clothes, or at least in what I have seen.

The background is superb. Usually the background is there for the sake of the character(s) in the piece, but here it is just as important as the character. Nice.
