Art trade with ~Anutwyll. :)
At first she asked me to do a full picture without background, but lately I really suck at making those, I can say I'm not able to do them good as my full-paintings. ;u;
So I've decided to do a speedpainting, and I also left her character without colors, but I like it as the way it is... Trust me, I've tried adding them, but it's not the same. Sorry sweetie. ç_ç Oh and I've drawn a chain around Smeryld, like he just escaped from prison. :lol:
I wanted the eye to stop over on the lights of these paintings/gemstones/fireflies/whatever they are. It's just a random cave, tho it's amazing! Who wants to be there? :D
I'm proud about the result. Playing around with the glowing effects was a total blast, they came out pretty well and so the background. :heart: The picture itself is one of my favourites artworks. c: I'm improving with speedpaintings and I'm using a lot of really nice Photoshop brushes. (They arent really speedpainting because they take me a lot of hours.... around 18 or less... ;w; )
Well I hope it's worth your part if art-trade!…
Thanks for art-trading with me, it was a pleasure! :glomp:
Oh and I'm really really sorry for the delay, I've been pretty busy lately. ;w; Well... here you are, finally! :D

Hope you like it! ♥

This is stunning! I love the spiritual-ness the picture brings! It's very deep. The colors on here look great, as well as the dragon of course. Other than that, awesome job!

This is amazing! The use of light and colour draws people into the image, and it's enchanting because of these, along with the quality of line and the placement of figures. X3
