Light Through the Trees by kohu-arts Light Through the Trees by kohu-arts
:) My last commission from the last batch! This one's for :iconmoonsongwolf: ^^

I will be opening commissions again on Friday, but that will be the last time for awhile, I'd like to do more personal art and gifts for awhile after that. :)

This looks really awesome as always ^^. But I have a question.. What size pixel brush do you use and do you use pressure sensitivity C: ?
Reply
:iconkohu-arts:
kohu-arts Featured By Owner Sep 28, 2012
Thank you. :)

I generally use between 3-5 size, and I use the pencil tool in SAI, not the brush. I do use pressure sensitivity, but I draw pretty hard so it isn't too sensitive. ;p I will go back and erase the edges of lines to taper them sometimes. :)

Oh so you use SAI like a boss! Wee this is something that really helps me C: everyone always says they use 3-5 brush C:

kohu-arts Featured By Owner Sep 29, 2012
Yup, I think the brush or pencil tool both work fine. I just like the pencil tool because it seems to give me a slightly more stable line. ;p But whatever works!

Oh, thank you so much! He looks absolutely GORGEOUS! :love:

I love his happy expression and all of the luscious details in his mane and feathers. And I swear, you have some of the smoothest lineart that I've seen. It seriously looks like a screenshot from an animated movie. And I can't get over that incredible golden lighting. It's just the perfect amount of contrast between the highlights and shadows to enhance his face and expression. It feels like he's ready to lead you into some place magical.

That background is beautiful, too. I love the beams of light and the little high-lighted dust motes. Plus, the texture of the trees and the grasses are very well done. It's just enough to complement the character and the mood, but not so much that it overpowers the entire image. I love it so much!

Thank you again! This is really wonderful, and it brightened my day to see. :hug:

I'm so glad you like it! Serge is so fluffy, I love his design, and it was really good practice with that lighting and those trees (I find them pretty difficult to do normally).

Thanks so much for commissioning me again, you have beautiful characters. :)

Background. Seriously? Background! :heart: Why can I not background like that?

kohu-arts Featured By Owner Sep 27, 2012
It took me way too many tries to get this, lol. I had to adjust the colors several times too. xD

All background-ing takes is time, if you're willing to spend a lot on it. Sadly, I am usually not!

lol. <3 I know, I kind of spent a bit too much detail on the trees ... kind of contrasts with the simplicity of the cartoon character, but the trees were a lot of fun to do once I actually figured out how to do them (at about Try 4). xD

ehfeagfea this is so beautiful * w* That background, the colors, it's just amazing how much your improving with every drawing! What a finale to that marathon list of commissions you had.

....Which by the way, you better bet I'll be stalking for commission slots. >.> <3

And can't wait to see more of your personal stuff too in the future! Money is awesome, but drawing whatever you feel like is priceless. =P
