*AlanaRoseheart's Seth for the C.A.X.. The more I look at it, the more I feel like I could have done better. It's starting to become a habit with my art lately, I'm really not pushing myself hard enough I think.

Slightly late, and I'm very sorry for that.

The faded trees in the background are a painted-over photograph. I don't know who shot it, though.

Sorry it's takin' me so long to get back to you about this. But I adore what you've done with him, not only does the setting look amazing, but you fit him in there just perfectly! I love how you drew him, he looks so adorable! You did a really good job on this, thank you so much, dear, I don't deserve such artwork! <3

I think you did a great job Lhune, but I also understand the value of an artist being their own worst critic. I know I beat myself up about my work all the time.
This is an interesting character design and you've used the design very effectively in the restricted colour palette.
A particular little detail I like is the very convincing way that Seth is gripping the log. That was one area I think my C.A.X. entry was lacking in and you did a good job of it here. Also, it would have been easy to put a lot of red in the water to show Seth's reflection, but you resisted the temptation and it looks more effective the way you've coloured it, I believe.

Thanks a lot for your extensive and lovely comment Donna :3.

I did hesitate about that reflection and wondered if I should make it detailed, but I figured that with such murky waters and a complicated character that's deep in thought, a clear reflection doesn't suit the mood.

Fantastic! I especially love how you've managed to give it a wonderful sense of depth on the swamp, even with the muted colour palette.
Plus the composition = <3

Late comment is late, sorry!
As i said during your stream, i really like how the shading looks realistic in the propagation of light onto the character.
As for pushing yourself hard, i think that you've been really improving lately, so it's true that your pictures must now adapt their technique/syle goals in consequence. I must admit that you've done this one really quickly and easily, so now i guess all you've got to do is place your expectations a bit higher for your future pics, to feel satisfied again with your work. Of course i'm sure you'll keep blowing us away :] You're always experementing new things!~
Well, great job anyway Lhune! <3
Keep it up! :thumbsup:

Well, i don't know you since such a long time, but from what i've seen so far, seeing how often you updated your gallery with great stuff, and after such amazing pictures as 'Resting', i'm definitely sure you did improved a lot. :)

Welcome <3

Beautiful painting! The shadows and highlights on Seth look perfect and those little red flowers are adorable <3 They also brighten up the gloomy atmosphere. So it gives a really nice blend of emotions to the image!

i like the feeling of this picture! the only thing that really stands out to me is the log. i think it could've looked more wood-like, i know you didn't have much tie with this in the end. but it looks fantastic!

We can always do better at our art; it's nothing to feel badly about.

What I like best about the picture is that at first it looks like a gloomy, somber sort of environment, but then in the foreground there are the little flowers and slightly brighter grass. And you realize it's not somber, it just is. The world isn't all sunshine and that's okay.

I think maybe the feet/hands could be worked in a bit more.. but other than that, its a gorgeous picture. I love the perspective, and the colours you've chosen really separate Seth nicely :nod:

Done better?? Lhune, this one is great as it is! :D
I saw already on the thumbnail that this was going to look great, and it does.

The picture has this painted feeling, and you've paid good attention to the muscles, and how the light behaves on skin ^^

I suppose the black makes the piece seem a bit harsh, but I don't know if the black on the character is in fact markings or not. The pose is very nice though and there's good interaction between the character and the environment :)

fffff I think it looks absolutely gorgeous *v* I love the overall mood and feel this has. I love the flowers there, I feel they add a very nice touch to it and balance out the otherwise pretty murky background well.
I love how you've portrayed Seth aswell, he looks kinda sad but at the same time content too. And of course cute, but Seth is always cute, so that's a given |D
Even though its' Alana's character, I feel like this is also a gift to me since Seth is one of my species and he has always been one of my favorites <3 haha so thanks for the amazing picture :'D

Aww, well that means a lot to me coming from you, as the creator of this species :3.

He's a very sad little bunny. Definitely cute, and he's got a short stubby tail like my own character so I'm biased towards him xD <3.
