The Hourglass by Autlaw The Hourglass by Autlaw
A second commission for =Kenaeshia of her characters Shana (left) and Askon (right) in a setting of the storyline she made up (:

This must probably be the most difficult piece I've worked on in years. =Kenaeshia gave me a very detailed description including the hourglass it's overal look and the environment, time of day, lighting etc. It was very helpful, I guess I really would not get the drawing as detailed if I didn't have the description. I want to thank her for taking her time to write it all for me, it has been my guideline in drawing this all the way to the last details :) !

It is still not perfect and I see lots of things which could have been done better, but I see it as a thing to learn from. I had to say stop somewhere as I was not exactly sure where to stop adding details x) The light was the hardest part again just like in a previous drawing. It's hard to imagine how the colors of objects would look like if they were hit by two or 3 light sources at a time.

But overall I think it turned out okay, maybe I'll go back and tweak a little here and there, but it won't be much (;

I hope you like it dear, and that I've been able to get together everything you described (: !

PS. Set your screen brightness to full, the colors will come out much better that way (: !

wow youknow i'm really not sure what to say. every time i look at this i just see more and more detail like holy ungodly shit those stones they're on are absolutely beautiful. you did such a wonderful job catching everything with the right light, the neck on the yellow one the body on the black one, the statue. I just can't man I can't put it into words. Your plants and attention to detail and talent for scenery is just
amazing. <3

Ahw mann thanks so much for those kinds words!! I Always appreciated you support and still do, even when I changed accounts :] !

I'm planning to go into the direction of the game art / concept artists out there, I've always been amazed by how they get so much detail into their works and so fast x) I used a couple of brushes I made myself for this one, If I have a full set of ownmade brushes I will submit them here so you can try them out as well, they come in handy when wanting to add a lot of detail to drawings c:
