Ok, as promised here it is

completely acryl on canvas.

It took a lot of time.
I have to admit, that the photo is not the best.
Actually the colours are better and you can see where I had to overpaint Joras back pretty good X_x
The "shadows" on the stones where done with silver colour mixed with black. not the best idea as you can see.
If you don´t look in the right angle it is lighter than the actual stone. Yeah...

Pip really pissed me off. I don´t know how often I tried to draw him, till I got that cartoony expression which at least didn´t made me numble angry at the picture.
Ok, that sounds really negative. In fact I like how he looks there. It fits his personality.

I tried to put a lot of details into it.
Insects, and animals and very minimalistic flowers in the background.
That is a lot for me. You know how often I do details... never!

But I have to say I´m pretty proud of myself.
Yeah... I´m very s atisfied with that picture and I have to say I think I can handle acryl colours pretty good. O_O

ok enough talking I´m sorry but I could say 1000 things about this picture like... so:

HOW THIS PICTURE WAS BORN (you can make a jump or stop reading here if you want to):

:bulletblue:I started with it when I got the canvas wich was 2005 I think. I sketched jora and some other things but never got the chance or the courage to colour it.
Then I changed my style with the time and I redid it a few times. Finally I moved to Deggendorf in October 2007 and started to colour it.
I nearly finished it but wasn´t satisfied.
Then in November I got some new acryl colours and had the chance to change some minor things.
I drove home for christmas and after that I learned most of the time.
Finally I finished it on 07.02.2008.
It took me three years to finish this painting from the idea to the final piece.


FUN FACT
When Jessie visited me she didn´t realised that the mouse was a mouse.
In fact she thought, that the ears where the mouth (I prefer it as moustache) and the whiskers the actual hair. It took some time till she focused right. and then we laughed a lot.


Uff, yeah...

ok, all the improtant stuff

I really like this alot. It's very colorful with lots to look at. You get drawn to Jora then start noticing all the other fun details. And I love how you incorperated your signature as a design to her clothes. You fit it in to the pic itself~. <3

The expressions on Pip and Jora are really cute. Jora looks rather dreamy and Pip is sort of all "??" at seeing this. Everything looks like a lot of time was put into this and thatnone of it was rushed at all. This is definately another of your best works, I think. <3

I´m really glad, that you like it that much :)

actually... the signature on her cape is her name. Those are runes and say Jora. :aww:

I like their expressions too xD. It was a hard fight.
And I´m glad that the hard work can be seen xD;
Thank you again.
Thank you for your long comment :hug:

:lol: Oh, don't I know how that is. I have a human character that is a bitch to draw. I can never get him just right, even after redrawing the same damn drawing five times over.

know what you mean xD;

I have a number of characters, every time I try to draw them I´m nothing satisfied.
After the ninethousand time I get something that is decent enough in my opinion xD;

das ist ein dunkelgrün XD;
aber es ist echt schwer ein dunkles grün zu mischen, dass nicht zu hell ist und die farbe wieder hinzubekommen... tja :/

aber du hast recht, ursprünglich war der Hintergrund heller.

Aber ich bin froh, dass es so gut ankommt. es war sehr anstrengend.

This was done completely in paint? That's wonderful!

Sounds like your painting had to undergo a long journey to reach completion too.
