Terrizae's Prize by Droemar Terrizae's Prize by Droemar
Okay, dammit, I know I said one character with a simple background, but when sent me drawing reference for her gargoyle winged horse Raxas or her silent canines called Lunix, of which I could take my pick, I ended up doing both! As soon as I saw them I started thinking, how would they interact, these two species? And what kind of environment would they like? So I decided to do a rather badass picture where the leader of the Lunixes, Finn, decides she doesn't want Raxas foraging around in her pack's territory. Lunixes strike me as having eyes that would act like little moons (hence their names *shrug?*), so I made them very glowy. I guess I took a page from my own veskr species, whose scars glow in the dark to confuse their prey, so maybe the Lunixes would have need of a light in the gloom. I had me some straight out fun with this one, especially with the mist and the little branches with moss clinging to them. One of my less sucky backgrounds.

Also I tried out some composition rules that Starhorse gave me, so it was fun to use them, too. I hope I succeeded.

Well, here's what I have saved in my notepad after talking with Star.

1. Background colors that are more saturated seem closer to the viewer, while desaturated ones seem further away.
2. Tangents with borders call attention to themselves and can unbalance a piece.
3. Left facing elements should be balanced by right facing elements.
4. Forward facing elements can offset elements viewed from the side.
5. Warm colors draw a figure forward, cool, desaturated colors set a figure back.
6. Don't let similar colors on figures bleed into one another.

I'm afraid for you to go to college, it's scary how fast you improve. Like art steroids or something.

It's thanks to your critique, you know. And yet, I'm certain you could rip this one apart ... *runs from Star's cruelty*
