Lonesome Dreams by Skailla Lonesome Dreams by Skailla
Helllowwwwww my dear friends!!! :la:
How have you all been? Oh my goodness it's been forever!
I know I haven't shown you guys anything new in ages, but believe me, time to breath is a rare thing lately.

But anyways, to the pic!
Please, do listen to this song! [link]
Yup. Lord Huron. This band has been such an inspiration for me since last year, specially with U&A. It seems like every song they make is the perfect materialization of an adventure, with a different, strange kind of feeling (in the most magical way possible :love:).

This song, specially, sounds almost like a theme for Steban, in a way. It's hard to write this part of his personality, but this song translates it so well. Try to feel it :)

I've had this image stuck in my head for half a year now xD
Steban is going on one of his adventures (and of course, he dragged poor Martin with him), and decided to take one of his famous short-cuts.
Turns out this is one of his favorite places on earth, a cavern of growing stones. Martin had never seen anything so amazing in his whole life. It amazed him in such a way he even forgot to frawn.

Actually, besides the challenge of creating the background (which I had to do without references :x), the most intriguing thing about this picture was drawing Martin with this expressions. I seriously did not realized his eyebrows could actually go up :giggle:

Anyway, I really hope you guys enjoy this! :)
This took me around 3 days to make, considering school projects interruptions.

Thank you very much for every comment and fave!
I'm extremely sorry I haven't been online for like, a month. I'm flooded with notes and comments, old and new ones, and I really can't find the important ones among all the spam I got!

So if you have anything important to ask me, or if someone (if) made my a gift art, I would like to ask, could you please send me the link again? I really appreciate all you've done for me! Thank you for being such sweet, wonderful people, all of you :)

I caught this one late.  Wow, this is insane!  I'm curious.  Did you do vertical and horizontal flips for the reflection, or did you manually draw them?

This reminds me of something, I don't know what though.

It's cool to know that  such an awesome picture was inspired by an equally awesome song. Lord Huron really inspires a strange sense of wonder in a lot of their songs, and you nailed the feeling perfectly. :)

Your artwork is incredible! I love how you feature wolves, (which is my fav. animal!) and your drawing is amazing! I know that you sort of quit Over the Mountains and Far Away, but I think it's wonderful and would love for you to continue! If you could find the time, I would love to hear the ending of your fantastic story!
