Not Your Typical Night Owl by SaffuranLoL Not Your Typical Night Owl by SaffuranLoL
Clean render may be released on it's own later.

Well, look who actually got something done. No, not me... That'd be silly. For those who don't already know, this is based off of a sketch made by :iconhoney-laurel17: in her character sheet located at this [link] .

My original plan was to get this AND an Art Trade done over the break but I am lazy and lots of stuff happened with friends over the break (nothing bad, just hanging out and enjoying the break) and I lost track of time until I had really.. no time left to use. ^^; My bad.

I improvised a lot of the background to fit this picture into a realistic environment yet again because I'm trying to move away from the black backgrounded color splats like I mentioned in my last pic. This was also a small experiment in another way because I ran this picture through some filters (to make it look less dull) and the shine that came out really caught my eye and a couple bud's eyes so I stuck with a filter version.

Anyways, here we have Saff.. the lazy bum is basking in the moonlight with a cocky grin on his face, the bastard. <3

If he's enjoying sitting there as much as I enjoyed working on this pic, no wonder why he's grinning so huuge... xD

Well I must say that you did an amazing job my friend. The background has lots of detail, the moon seems pretty close but I like that, nothing wrong with that. I do have 2 things that bug me just a little. The shoes are just a little off, it starts off skinny then out thick. I could be the style so I could be wrong on my part. The other thing is the right hand. Hands are really hard and I know that lol Now if the fingers are at the same hight, that means the bigger ones are pushed out more from the top. I'm not sure if can see what I see on that part but it's not that much of a big deal, the pic is amazing, you've improved a lot. If you wana improve more on your hand poses, draw refs from any other artist that love their hands on. I practiced a bit on Shadow Will's hand ref sheet, helped me a lot. Great job man!

To say " awesome " or " excellent" would be a simple understatement.
First, the background is simply amazing, the moon and clouds look so realistic and close, the dark sky with it´s little, bright stars is just indescribeable. As well as your character. I really like his design, the black marks in his face and the cream white stripes around his spines suit the dark colour perfectly! As well as the bright purple on his boots! ( man, I really like the effect of the stripes, it looks like ivory )
Your technique with the shading is awesome, too! I like the thin white line which goes with the shading!

But there´re also some negative things.
The very first thing I noticed was his levt leg. Is it anatomically even possible to move it like this? You should have drawn the shoe more from it´s bottom instead of the side. I know you used *Honey-laurel17´s lineart but that doesn´t mean you couldn´t fix it a bit. The hand looks quite fine to me but the fingers got a little big.
The grass is more like a thorn in the flesh. It looks so simple and blank. A few more details like a flower, light effects or shading would have been great!
Also I think the eye, the litte part between forehead and nose, looks a bit too shaped. A little curve or something would fits it great but I think that´s a matter of taste :)

Sure, there are some things you could improve but the all around look of the artwork, the coloring, this .. effect.. I can´t take my eyes off, honestly. It just blew up my mind :love:
Keep drawing such amazing art ~:heart:

It's not a big deal really like I said. I don't mind it as much as some other artists mostly because everyone uses art from other stuff, I don't feel like mine should be exempt. It's flattering in a way. =P

Well... I figure it's about time I commented this. I mean, it has been close to two months already. XD

What can I say, you turned a simple sketch into a full blown masterpiece. The shading is spot on, really captures the light direction and night time feel of it. Loving the sly expression, look at that cheeky bugger.

The background looks amazing, maybe a few too many stars, and the grass could use a little more texture but that's hardly important. Overall great work man.

When I got CS2 I got it from my art teacher at school for free because he didn't need it anymore caz CS3 came out. I have CS3 now through the same teacher.

What I do is sketch, scan, and then line over my sketches.
