HAPPY BIRTHDAY DEAR HARMONIE! :party: :heart: Hope you are having a great day! :glomp:
Art trade with the epic :iconfourth-star:! c8
Woooh this took me pretty a lot of time! She made me choose between Solna and Auros. :) And she asked for a night picture. Since Solna 's design has been inspired by the oriental looking, I decided to add a Chinese-like landscape. I've been inspired by a movie in particular, If you can recognize it! :XD: I've had problems with the mountains and the cherry tree. I've never drawn them before but I guess they came out pretty good. (?) Big thanks to my cutie ~VictDrag who helped me with the tree! :XD: Seriously he sent me some really helpful references and tutorials!~ <3
Oh well but I love Solna here! <3 I tend to make dragons more as adults in my style... even if the charachter should look more like a teen.
I really hope you'll like it! Thank you so much for accepting ny art trade request! <3
Have a nice day! :cuddle:


Hope you like it!

Such a magical, dreamy looking picture. :) I like Solna's pose (with the flared-out wings) as well as the tree bark's speckled appearance and the wind-blown leaves. ^^ I love how certain things appear illuminated (as if by moonlight or magical light) such as the leaves and the mountain tops. You've put a lot of details into it, like her wings (veins and ripples on her wing membrane where the wings are stretched), cracks in the rocks, etc. Good work!

Wow, the cherry tree is superb, and isn't it the Peach Tree of Heavenly Wisdom from Kung Fu Panda? I love how the petals are flying and how the dragon reminds me of Master Shifu looking at the sky for his master...it's beautiful.

I saw the peach tree in the background and immediately thought "hey, that looks like the peach tree of wisdom!"  And whaddya know, I scroll down, and so it is. XD
It's a beautiful piece - I especially love the little details in the wing membrane, how the skin gets more transparent towards the edges, and how the wing itself really seems like it's stretching.
One suggestion, if I may: next time you draw mountains in the distance (at night, anyway), try making them darker.  Because of the atmosphere, things that are farther away lose detail and become paler, more like the color the sky.  In nighttime/darker settings you still lose the detail, but instead it gets darker - in this case, those mountains would be almost black.  I've also noticed that utilizing this helps create a feeling of depth.   And actually, I wonder if it would help set the scene even a little better to exaggerate the lighting, too, like having deeper shadows and more silvery highlights.  Don't get me wrong, though, it's really very nice. ^^ I like the picture a lot (and those rocks especially)!

(I hope you don't mind that I offered a few tips, I'm just trying to share some thoughts that may or may not turn out to be helpful. ^^ )

"I see you've found the peach tree of heavenly knowledge"

:'D OH MY GOSH this looks absolutely amazing! :heart: I cannot stop looking at all the details in this picture, just wow <'3 The colours are just astounding, and just look at how pretty Solna looks ;-; She looks wonderful with a more adult look. And I've always thought that cherry trees fit her perfectly, well this picture surely makes me certain of it now :'D I can't describe how much I love it, the background just blew my mind and Solna looks simply perfect. I can't even imagine how long it took you to draw the tree Dx Just wow... Everything looks so calm and peaceful, makes you want to be there right now <3
I'll try to get my part done as soon as possible, hopefully before I leave in two weeks! Just aaah, thank you so much, this looks amazing c': :iconbrohugplz:

This image looks very nice and neat. I like how you drew the tree a lot, especially the leaves. I also like the detailing on the stones, all those cracks and scratches make the whole thing look more believable. I also like that small texture for the sky, it's barely visible but it fills unused space very well. One thing i'm not sure about would be how close those mountains are to the tree, it looks a bit unnatural, those mountains look like they should be more distant. Other than that, this is a great looking image, i'm sure Shrimp will love this.
