The Encounter by Lhuin The Encounter by Lhuin
Finally finished this one, it's been in the works since... 2011? Something about it didn't keep me interested in it until now, when I rediscovered it a few days ago and wanted to work on it again. And I guess I'm happy I had a little break with it, was enjoying painting it again with some new, fresh ideas for it.

Something a bit more realistic again for a change, I think this is the kind of work I will focus on now and the style I want to practise after drawing lots of 2D stuff, I enjoy drawing 2D-work as well but from now on those will mainly go to my tumblr, will still be posting some pieces here but for more check here:
But will mainly post my realistic and/or more painterly work on DA.

Drawn entirely in Photoshop, with the first black/white and then colour-technique. Interesting way of colouring but I think it suits this one. And I do like drawing backlight :D

Wanted to do something very "wildlife" but still make it a bit mystical by trying to portray the feeling of encountering a wild animal in the nature. Hasn't happened to me, at least not many times, but I hope I succeeded in it.

Also available as a print :)
