Mystery Island Beauty by buizelmaniac Mystery Island Beauty by buizelmaniac
Tried something a little different today. XP In my drawing class, we're learning how to draw with pastels, and I LOVE IT. So I decide to combine what I know about pastels and what I know about digital art, an old sketch lying around in my computer files, and here's the result. XP I also got some help from Lackadaisy's painting tutorial lol.

I want to talk more about this, but I gotta go to class now. XD

EDIT: Added Lani's light chest fur and the leaf motifs on her shirt. Also lessened the intensity of the blue backlight.

EDIT2: Cleaned up the highlights. XD

She's gorgeous! The pastel colours really do give the piece such a soft and well blended look to it. This can't be your first time painting digitally, can it? I'll be stunned if it is. D8

A lot of my pets have hair. :B Well, technically, it's fur, but Lani would look weird without her hair. XD

Wow, this looks great and the difference in this style was very noticeable when I saw it in my Neopian group updates. I just had to take a look at it in full view.

This also fills me with a sense of nostalgia, remembering my years in studio art back in highschool.

...The shading along with the mixture of color pastels is a perfect blend.

Now if you'll excuse me, I'm going to go lose my brain adoring every little detail. x3

Your art looks brilliant in this style, Buizel! ^____^ You really do have a talent for that pastel-style shading, and this picture is not only beautiful to look at but inspiring as heck. I love the blue highlights, and the delicate shading around her eyes.

Also, she is adorable. <3 Sylvestre has fantastic taste.

Beauty is right. <3 Man, Sylvestre's got his eyes on the right Acara... XDD

Anyway, I love the style you used. 8D Painted Lani looks really good, hehe. Are we to be expecting more art in this style? Because that would be great. ^-^

(So... darn... cute... :heart:)

Yes. o.o Draw Audrey and other Zafaras and all your pets like this. Now. Because, Buizel, you've found a new style, and that style has come straight from THOR HIMSELF.
