I'll Be What I Am by bladebandit I'll Be What I Am by bladebandit
Commission for Sandalf. :D

He asked me for a piece which illustrated this song!

Hogeeze, the original file has so many more details. XD Had a lot of fun with the colours, and learnt a few new techniques on this. Hooray! :la:

Tche...stupid German music thing Gema won't allow me to check out the song, so I can't comment on anything related to that. Oh well... *grumbles* D: But I'm sure it fits well! :3

Anyway, the picture is lovely as always! :D
The grass...I don't know if you still wan't to hear how much I love your grass...? XD"
Well, it's awesome! 8D
The characters outlines must have taken quite a while, or? Detail-wise he looks so amazing! *_*
I especially like the small feathers/fur on the legs! :D

Once again a fantastic piece my dear! :heart:

Aw darn, that's annoying when that happens. :c The song is 'Solitary Man' by Johnny Cash, if you wanted to listen to it. ^^

Yeah, the outlines took...a good while. x_x Detailed character is detailed! :lol:

Thanks so very much, lovely! :heart:
