I wasn't going to originally draw you with a background, but you drew me with one so I felt guilty. All you other peeps, if you want your request to have a background you better say so or else you ain't getting one lol

Thiiiis tooook tiiiime. A loot oooof tiiiime. BUT OH MY GOD I ADORE MY STYLUS THE DRAWING IS SO SMOOTH AND SO MUCH EASIER TO DO AND MY FINGERS DONT HURT AND I DONT GET TIRED AND ITS SOOOOO FUUUUUUN

Wifi, if you want to use this as a profile pic (if you don't I won't be offended :D), here https://prnt.sc/fuxtnx or you could cut your own. If you want the whole drawing for some reason, tell me and I'll PM you the good quality one lol

But holy crap I adore the way this turned out I love the shaaaading

I am definitely using this as my profile pic of my gosh Shadow it's soooo good
Like the fur and the hair
Ahhh
Ya gotta teach me ho ya do ya fur and highlights cuz OH MY GOSH

Right
I love my gigantic compost heap XDXDXDXD
The sunset's pretty good, too! The depth perception's working great!
I think a circular gradient would help the sun's glow nicely but we have different programs XD
And then, or course, the smoke
Awwww yus
I think that the lens flare is a little dull and not blurry enough (gradients would fix that too xp
and I don't mean dull like boring but like the part where you drew the gleam could be lighter and sharper, I guess
But the rocks
Now that was challenging I always struggle with cliffs and precipices
I like the tree, too. Nice highlights!
I think the smoke should be blurred - I don't know. I like drawing smoke in my style.
Hey, how 'bout ya teach me about fur and I'll teach smoke? Heh. Just an idea.
Am I talking too much? I think I am.
There's just so much to compliment you about on this
Anatomy's on point - fur's fantastic, love the eyes, and the wrinkles on the scarf - oh man ya gotta teach me that too
I look sooo handsome XD
Thanks Shadow
U r awesome :3

@WildfireK: I'm glad you like it so much!! :D
Glad to see my hard work payed off lol

Alright... So fur is more with practice. Like if you take a look at my older drawings my fur is all spikey. So that gets better with time. For the highlights... Basically, I figure out where the strongest light hits the character. Then, in the patches of fur that aren't shaded I guess, I kinda blend some of that brighter color in? The further away from the light source the more transparent it is until it just isn't there lol. If your wondering about the brush, I use one that looks like this https://prnt.sc/fv8uya I'm not sure what brushes you have in FA, but thats the one I use. Oh I also use that for shading. I usually never use the softer airbrush on characters, because this brush gives them more of a furry look :3

Lol that's not supposed to look like smoke...its supposed to look like the sky darkening. I knew I didn't pull that off lol
Yeah, I tried hand-drawing the flare...it's the first time I ever did it by hand, and I figured too little is better than too much. I'll make it less transparent next time, thanks!

Thanks Wifi, you're awesome too!! =3

@ShadowStalker1128:
Thanks for the advice! I thought the silhouetted part of the rock was smoke rising from the ground XD

THanks fro telling me how to shade the fur! I'll definitely try it out. Though I could tell by looking at it how you did it, what I need to know is HOW TO DO YOU MAKIE IT LOOK SO GOOD ahhhhhh
I guess that can't be explained, though XD

Your are welcome :3

@LightEclipse: okay! With background I'm guessing? XD

So um do I base it off your profile pic or your art dump's cover?
LightEclipse July 13th, 2017, 3:57 pm

So, I see that WiFi has a new profile pic and all I could think is that that was really well drawn and I was wondering who drew-

*opens up this page*

WHAT THE! HOW!?! THIS IS AMAZING!!!

*reads that you got a stylus*

... You needed that SUCH a long time ago! I can't even describe in words how good this looks!
ShadowStalker1128 July 13th, 2017, 9:57 am
@wifijoe: aww you didn't recognize my style XD (jk)

Oh my gosh, thank you so much!! I know; my parents were against me getting one, but I'm so glad in the end they let me! Thanks again!
wifijoe July 13th, 2017, 9:27 pm
@ShadowStalker1128: what are you talking about? I totally recognized your style! After I saw this page...

Would you mind me asking what type of stylus you got? What comes to mind when someone says stylus for me is one of those cheap plastic ones with that weird rubber tip

@wifijoe: I use an adonit pixel :3

My first choice was the Apple Pencil, but it turns out that only works in iPad Pros -.-
So I did more research and found the Pixel. It works on almost any iPad/phone (including my old iPad mini), is comfortable to hold, has almost none to no lag, and is pressure sensitive. It's Bluetooth connected too. Obviously no stylus is perfect but so far I'm pleased with my purchase.
