.Amongst The Snowdrifts. by Andoledius .Amongst The Snowdrifts. by Andoledius
A long overdue chibi comission for =MiSTEH of her character Story...whos isnt a he or a she ;D

ANYWAY. i think the coloring came out decent on this one :3 it was hard to shade a white character like this and still make it look white xD;

(note to self: dont use strong lighting with white characters .__.; )

I spotted this pic first back when I joined DA. Not sure if I commented but I regularly come back to just enjoy it. It's beautifully shaded/colored and the creature is awesome.

Now that is a cutie. I absolutely adore your style of coloring: it is filled with the most wonderful fantastical elements. I don't know how you always manage it, but it's beautiful. Whenever I actually find myself with cash on hand, I need to commission you.

Ferret & dragon, but I took extreme creative liscense on what aspects of a ferret to use when I created Story so yeah- most people think Story is a canine dragon, T_T

I think the strong lighting is absolutely gorgeous! The different gradients make it all the more interesting to look at, for a start. The way you captured fur detail is lovely and your lines are awesome. Sort of delicate and fine looking but still crisp- they stand out. And it really works how you used no lines in the background or on the snow. The shades you used on the bamboo compliment Story perfectly!

I command you to stop being so amazing! This is seriously gorgeous! I just love how you did everything! You're really good at the gradient shading! I don't even know how to start with that one ._. I've tried but I can only do really really simple things.

The background is beautiful and compliments the character well. I love that the snow seems soft and delicate. I like how the bamboo looks like a painting x3

gradient shading is really hard to get used to xD; i remember when i first started, i didnt know what to do either. basically what i do is, take it section by section. so first use the selection tool and select a big area (like the head) and then shade that, then continue to work smaller and smaller. i use the smudge tool too, for when i messup and when i want to add swirlies :B i cant really explain it too well, you'll just need to keep practicing and find your own way to do it 8D;; *shot*

Goodness, where to start. Well, first I would like to say I really like how you showed that little stalk of bamboo in front of Story; it makes the background more of a part in the art, rather than simply a pretty thing to fill in the white spaces. 8D

I also like how you used shading to bring out the fur detail...which leads me to how you expertly incorporated those fine swirls into the shading on Story's face.

I enjoy seeing those wings as looking like they're actually fingers, it's a very nice touch. And I will end with this- I love that floofy tail! =P

Overall, a fantastic work of art. Great job! :D
