Thanks :) It's a speed painting I did of a horse I used to ride named China.

Your art is so pretty, you clearly have a good handle on Photoshop (or whichever program you use). :x I find it rather daunting to actually draw in, what with all the different brushes and layers and everything. Whenever I just doodle a bit for fun, on paper, it's pretty easy to keep track of what something will look like. On the computer, it's way less straightforward, I'm just like "and this brush on this colour will look like what?"

Your "forest scene" on your deviantArt is so bloody awesome it makes me want to swear and punch people. XD As wonderful as your digital paintings are, that picture in that style is flat-out gorgeous to me. I immediately started imagining what scenes from my book-in-progress would look like when illustrated by your hand. Very inspiring!

this one?


I'm actually going to give that to my Art teacher as a present when I graduate. It's her favorite piece of mine lol I really like using pen. And I know what you mean, drawing in photoshop is annoyingly difficult. X[ I've been using photoshop forever and I still have a hard time lol

It's crazy how you managed to get so much complexity out of just pen, it makes me feel like I'm in the woods! I'm sure your art teacher is going to adore it! Lolz, I just figured out that I can "like" posts. O_o I thought it was something Facebook-related like I see on other sites where you go to "like" it and it tells you to sign into your Facebook, and I don't have one. Whoops. :K

All I can say is WOW! Amazing! They are so beautiful and realistic!

What program do you use? I have Photoshop, but can't get the hang of it.

When I see that pen and ink one I think, "hours and hours!" it's just lovely. Very stylish.
