When Darkness Falls by Yowsie When Darkness Falls by Yowsie
Art-trade with *Ganjja. I hope you like it and if I've missed something from Ganjja's design, just shout!
Maybe the drawing is too blue? I've no idea. I'm also not quite satisfied with the wings :I

Also, I might be even more slow at replying and commenting, because I got a very big exam soon >:I

hmm...what can i say....

orginal...it lacks...if you look at it and just watch harry potter and the prisoner of azkaban (part 3)

technique its almost high defenition almost impossible to make for some artist's
you make it dark blue....for much of them this is impossible to make at HD.....really amazing
the north light...looks nice with the dark blue colour
the water....amazing job....and the lights thad coming out the water its a nice effect on this picture

impact....nothing to say annymore

vision..... it looks like the loch ness with the mountains
the north light...amazing

amazing job (exept on orginality but thad i dont matter much )

Wow. WHere to start. I really love this one, and the detail is to a t. The lights and stars in the sky add a very awesome effect. I love the highlights and shading also! The water looks amazing, with a very beautiful flowy-ness. It does lack a certain origionality, but has a different look than most art like this. Where the dragon's foot is dragging across the water adds a nice touvh. I also like the background and the lighting on the mountains. It adds a very peaceful look to this peice.

Overall, I really love this. It looks beautiful with avery serene atmosphere of beauty and tranquility.

Aw man Yowsie, don't make me all jelly on your hand/claw anatomy. It's simply splendidly well done of how Ganjja draws one finger across the water; it creates such a magical effect. Very well drawn.
I suppose the perspective was kind of awkward to draw? However, you made it appear just correct. I cannot find any great fault in it.

Haha, then we are equals, as I'm damn jealous of your traditional coloring skills! XD
But thank you so very much for the wonderful compliments dear! :heart: :heart:

It was actually much more easier than I thought, (except the wings), I usually use reference drawings/photos for such kind of arduous poses/perspectives. But since I didn't find any, I just had to go on my mind xD So I'm delighted to hear that it appears to be correct!

Lika snyggt som alltid, perfekt atmosfär och ljussättning, vattnet ser riktigt riktigt bra ut, och resten av bakgrunden är bra den med! En enda sak som jag ser bara, benet som inte nuddar vattnet är nog lite för kort jämfört med benet som nuddar :)

A very breathtaking and wonderful picture JowJow :heart::heart: I love the aurora northern lights in the sky <3 I think you have improved on water effects and such. The light trail on the water is very pretty as well.
I do not think it is too blue, in fact I think it is totally fine because there's different hues and types of blues, it's not overwhelming because the darker ones balance the picture. Ganjja looks amazing as well :heart:

Ghcjojizuaeiubat!! What can I say? u__u
Yowsie, your part it incredible!I love everything about this picture! IT IS BREATHTAKING.
But, FFFFF, how you do you those amazing landscapes? The mountains, the sky I especially love how you've made stars to the corners, I love aurora borealis (and this one is like the ones I like to do) and it fits so well with the dark scenery. I've noticed that a little "sparkles" is getting out from the lake, it's like Ganjja invoke them to gush from depth ;A;
The texture of the lake's surface is so realistic. The thing which made this piece more beautyful is the trail left by Ganjja's paw : MAGICAL !
This scenery describe Ganjja from A to Z; dark, beautiful, shiny and mystical.

Now Ganjja himself. God he's handsome in your way. Love the perspective and the angle of view. Like this, we can see very well his pretty horns and motifs~:heart:
I think you havn't forgottent any details, congrats! because I know it's quite difficult to draw them all.
This drawing come from heaven. It's the perfect place where Ganjja love to wander. And I'm very happy you've made it on this lake <333 ! (because I draw him in forests in general)

Well, thank you so much for this <33 I really really love it, and I don't regret you've draw him finally and not Minkiun.

Oh and, good luck with your exam >w<

I tried to create as many glowing or sparkly things as possible as I know you really love glowing things. I guess I succeeded! XD But I'm so veryyyy happyyy to hear all these wonderful compliments and I'm even more delighted to hear that you love it! It warms my little heart so darn much! <33333 :heart: :heart: ;AA;

I'm also glad to hear I didn't miss any details, he does indeed have many markings and accessories. Whenever I thought the drawing was finished, I noticed that I had forgotten something xD

You're very welcome dear! :heart: :heart: and thank YOU for this art-trade as well, It was really fun to work with Ganjja, as he has such a creative and lovely design! :dummy:
