More Adventures Await Us by BjornTheBear More Adventures Await Us by BjornTheBear
YOU GUYS HAVE NO IDEA HOW MUCH I LOVE FARALDA AND BJORN. I was experimenting with the grass stamp tool as you can see (I know it is frowned upon, but I couldn't help it!!!!!!!!! All together this took about 40 minutes I think? Mainly because I took the cheap way out with masks and the grass stamp brush.

Background done in Photoshop, 4 layers, 15 minutes

Characters done in sai,15 layers,30 minutes

EDIT: I added harsher shadows, thanks to some help from :iconosidus: !!!!

alright, good.

now, you want to be careful about the angle of the light source.

since it's in front of them, their shadows are going to stretch far past where we are as viewers, so you want to make the shadows come all the way to the foreground if possible. (oh gosh, that sounded corny and teacher-like. XC)

ooh ok, yeah i wasn't thinking XD i was like "NO,I GOT SHADOW ON THE GRASS THAT'S REALLY CLOSE UP!" and you DO sound like my art teacher XD

BTW,regarding the adoptable, its going to be mainly dark grey/black with orange/brown claws and feet, and dark orangey feathers, i was gonna have its tongue dripping acid or something, but i wasn't sure if you would be cool with that? ALSO, Dilong Paradoxi are about as tall as somebody's lower thigh, so do you want it to be big and mutated, or still tiny?

well, i'd have to see it, because the main problem i have so far is the orange... don't like orange much, and i have bigger problems with burnt orange. (i know i live in Austin, but the football-craze has driven me insane.) (pardon i did not warn you of this)

acid-spit i don't care for and it will probably be left out if i ever draw or RP him/her. you can add it if you want, though.

but if the base is black, then metallic purple/blue/green or even just grey will do fine.

i'll look at it's stature and decide the size for myself, so don't worry about it. :)
