By the Campfire by Lhuin By the Campfire by Lhuin
Commission for Nordo and Darthaislin's characters! :D (on FA)
They both coincidentally commissioned me without knowing and I was secretly drawing for both hehe! XD Just got both drawings ready yesterday!
I had sooo much fun with the lighting on this one haha! And cool to draw a plane too, I don't normally draw many planes/mechanical things in general (see I don't even know a common word for them or I just can't think atm hahaha) but got plenty of great references and help for it! ^_^

See the other one here: 
Magenta Fields by Lhuin

Characters belong to Nordohuskamute and Darthaislin, art by me, drawn in Sai and PSCS3

EDIT: oh my, thanks for the DD!! ;v; I'm flattered!

Daily Deviation

Given 2014-05-04
By the Campfire by Lhuin Is such a beautifully romantic piece that really sets the mood for a time well shared with a significant other. What better way then to spend it roasting marshmallows while being basked by the radiance of the northern lights. This piece truly touches you in a serene, peaceful way.

This is so astonishing, that I don't know what to say. Oh, beautiful north. Camping there, having a romantic evening, or simply flying over that place, enjoying the beauty of nature, are best things ever! :D
Light are done so realistic, argghh!

Heh well animals don't generally need clothes because they have fur so guess it's the same with anthro characters

Animals rely on estrus to entice their mates.

As humans, we rely in more visual cues, for example, a woman's naked body. When she undresses, removes her clothes, the exposes her naked body for us. Nude, vulnerable, expecting our touch, hoping for our mercy.

There is a reason why nudity is considered taboo, and no, I could not care less that they do in other countries.

I would rather a woman's body be covered and considered sacred, then open and flaunted and considered common, and enticing many men to her.

I didn't really mean to star a full-on conversation about human culture and nudity by replying, I just meant to explain that humans are not covered in fur so they wear clothes for many reasons - one of them is staying warm - whereas animals don't need to as they have fur. Anthros are animals with human-type features and they are not real anyway so I'd just shrug it off as fantasy. There are no genitals or even nipples showing in this image so I wouldn't consider this open or flaunted at all, it's the same as wearing a bit more skin tight clothes to me.

Also some anthro characters do wear clothes ofc but that can just be the visual preference of the creator of the character, or just the case for that specific character

This has a very nice feeling to it :) I love the aurora borealis in the sky, it really adds an awesome mood to the whole composition!

Very romantic and painted really well! Love how the lighting reflects onto everything and even the sky's lights highlight the silhouettes of the characters :)

Really amazing job! Congrats so much on the DD!

I really like how the dark grassy ground fades into the distance to the left center of this picture.  The gap of blue (water?) before the mountain complements the rocky exposed terrain of the mountain well.  The aurora borealis is stunning here, and somehow your stars seem more realistic than just about any others that I've seen in a digital painting.  Might I ask how you got that visual effect on the stars, for instance the upper right blue one?

I like how only the treetops stand out above the clustered forest.  What's especially neat is how the trees are in fact darker than the night sky, as it's lit up by the auroras and stars, while the trees show only their shadowed side- the fire doesn't extend its light that far.  This kind of reminds me of a recent digital painting of mine (Thanksgiving Campfire), but it now seems I didn't really make my scene dark enough.  I think you've accomplished strong realism in choosing the lighting levels.  This just reminds me very strongly of a trip out west to Yellowstone, where I could see a night sky lit up by many stars without the regular diffuse glow from urban light pollution, which is what I'm accustomed to.

Somehow, I feel that the plane fits right in with the remainder of this scene, including the anthros.  Stylistically, I'm impressed that you pulled that off.  This is a beautiful landscape- I'd like to walk right into it and stare up at the sky, or even walk back to the lake/river between the gap in the trees.  It's just spellbinding.

Aw sorry it seems like I missed this comment originally, but thanks so much for writing and thank you for the nice words!  :aww:

The stars were drawn individually first, then I used either the clone tool to place them around the sky and also duplicated the layer and moved them around. And the glowy effect over some of them was done on a new layer with a big soft brush on overlay effect :)

Jälleen kerran tausta ja yksityiskohtien määrä on ihan älytöntä luokkaa! Varsinkin tässä työssä sun kehityksen näkee todella. 80 Lentsikan olet toteuttanut niin hyvin, tosi uskottavasti olet toteuttanut kahdesta eri lähteestä tulevan valon ja miten se heijastelee koneen pintaan ja hahmoissa. 

Haa mullakin itse asiassa mielessä yksi työ johon liittyy tuommoinen potkurilentokone. 8D Mutta noita ihmisen rakentamia vekottimia ei ole tullut piirreltyä juurikaan joten saa nähdä miten onnistuu.
