Crystal Roses by lightf4lls Crystal Roses by lightf4lls
Gift art for :iconsmittyg: because he is a great artist and inspiration to many.

I had wanted to do a pic for smitty for a long time but never really felt I was good enough, but when the Crystal Empire came out I wanted to try.

Which leads to a failure on my part, as some of you might be able to tell this pic is actually a work in progress. I really don't want to post WIPs and the fact that I made this as a gift art just hurts even more, but I'm tired. I spent many days just on this (were talking easily 50+ hours), but the list of things to do on it just never ended.

Worst part came when I thought I was finished but the background was terrible, so when I finally found a background I wanted to do a lot of the lighting on the foreground was out. (The background is currently a bunch of photos). So I hope smitty can forgive me for this but I need to move on for a while. I plan come back to this in the future and give it the attention it deserves and upload it in its proper size.

Lastly I suppose you could call this my first proper piece (well since this is unfinished I suppose its the first colored artwork after this).
The line-art, coloring and shading is the best I can currently do, unlike almost everything else I've posted to dA which is months old, experiments or crappy speedruns.

So no more of that, I want to get my stuff down from about 2 weeks to 2 days, so I'm going to lock in the way I draw things and get a routine going and we will see how that works.

Everyone who learns to draw sucks at art, you just have to be persistent and practice. Check out my progress sketches and you can see how bad my early stuff really is.

If your interested this site has some good video tutorials from the beginner to some more advanced stuff [link]

This is just so absolutely beautiful!! :love:

The bottom half of her hind legs are a bit long; but it's hardly noticeable with these amazing highlights and vibrant colors ^_^

Thank you! :)

As for the legs, well that's more of a style choice on my part more than anything else. And yes, feel free to use it as a background.

For the record, I wasn't trying to say it was bad or anything; cause they look nice in this style. I just get ocd with certain stuff.. ><;;

And thank you!
