162 (who?)
His chin bothered me so I fixed it

Painting/Style experiment with Griffen that I had started a while ago and finally got around to finishing it.
This was painted pretty fast aha, probably could have done a better job but I dont mind the outcome.
That was the point, see if I could get something shaded really really fast.
But I ended up playing around too much and kinda took longer to get no where.

I woulda liked to render the fur better but I have things I owe xD that can wait.

Kinda tried to care less about details and just play with other things. lol

(God damn browser, went back a page and made the whole comment get lost just as I was going to post it... X.x)

Anyways, I really like this! The light effects are astonishing! Especially the lens flare, that adds an awesome touch to the whole picture. The whole shading looks very cool, I do like that it is simple and not very detailed. I think that if you had spent more time on the fur, the details would have made the picture look too saturated and overwhelming. I like a lot how you do the brighter parts on the fur. The combination between lineart and a realistic shading is one of your strong suits, you always end up making them look very interesting! I also like the green stroke around Griffen. It's at the same time visible and invisible, it blends in perfectly. The eyes are awesome! The color makes it all contrast amazingly, it stands out from all the green but it blends in very well too!

The background is simple and its clouds are perfect. The whole color palette is something that makes this whole thing look balanced. Nothing screams out for attention and everything is noticeable. It's very cool! The green tones in here are, in a way, soothing. I guess Griffen's expression helps it to be like that too. I think contrast is something you always manage to do perfectly, I always find myself pointing that out in your drawings. It's THAT very well done! As I said, I like the color balance this has and the whole shadowing and lighting. It's a perfect blend of color XD. It's an amazing job of course, as always! = D

Oh god I hate when that happens xD I can't believe you retyped it this big.

And really? Ah thats good because I thought I shoulda spend more time on fur details xD
But I think the less details works with this style so : P thank you so much.
And yes, red is a fun eye colour haha xD Thank you so much : P I love these comments so much

I sure did XD

Yep, it's kind of a part of it
Besides, if you rendered the fur completely, this style wouldn't be what it is because it'd look too realistic
No problem, I'm glad you like them
You're very welcome!
