Sunglow by Lhuin Sunglow by Lhuin
Well the 'story' of this one.. I wanted to make an example for a possible commission style that would have been a realistic icon. But I found myself working on it until it was a lot more detailed than I meant. So not sure about realistic icons, I can't seem to be able to just leave it (no point in making tons of details as when shrunk down you can't even see them) and I guess I should work on a smaller canvas too.
This one was 1000 x 1000 but still too big : D

In the end I wanted to imitate a camera bokeh effect and put some of my fav colour on it. Been browsing some new lenses all day and guess I got a bit affected by that haha.

Not sure if I'll end up using this as an icon anywhere, but yey at least managed to draw my character in a realistic style! XD just thought I'd upload it here since I used a few hours on it.

Please do not use without my permission
Drawn in Photoshop CS3

Title comes from the colour variation my character is, she's a sunglow/red marble fox i18.photobucket.com/albums/b12…
