look, snowflakes ! by papaya-cat look, snowflakes ! by papaya-cat

Tora and Stain ! Lets say Tora just wanted to see the land covered in snow so Stain took her on his back.
Stain has Reindeer horns because I basically wanted this to look more christmasly. I wanted to add garland with colorful light, but i gave up the idea.
Still like the horns c:

I also tried a new technique for fur shading. The fur looks great but i don't know, i'm not fond off it, maybe I just need to work on this ^^

It took me like forever to draw this !
inspiration please come back ;A;

and I actuallly managed to draw CLOUDS ! motherf*ckin' clouds guys !
I know you can't even see them because of the snow :'D but they actually look pretty great !

i like starry nights °v°

the sketch looked better but anyway...

I must say this is quite a beautiful piece, though I am disturbed by certain details.

Firstly, the snowflakes, to me, appear somewhat large and irrealistic. They look like paper cut-outs and I believe they should be smaller and more transparent. I also do not believe the clouds should be darkened in their middles there, I don't see any light source making so necessary. But as always, your starry night backgrounds are admirable; dreamy.

Now concerning the way you drew your OCs, in this piece comes your recurrent error of drawing animal limbs faultily. I believe the elbow bone does not protrude that much and the wrists appear so thin and bony (Stain).
Tora's expression seems a bit exaggerated, though I love Stain's.
I also love how much the fur shading is detailed but I think it shouldn't be that precise on Stain's side. Tora's tail suffers from this too, but it's more acceptable. I also think that you need to study animal ears more and see how they really fold.
Other than that, I adore Stain's horns but I believe they should leave more streaks or 'taller' streaks than that. Concerning the paw streaks, the only ones I have a problem with are the yellow and red ones; a bit too 'solid', not gentle enough.

But overall, this is a nice piece speaking of calmness, beauty and freedom.
What do you think?
