Until Forever Comes by Skailla Until Forever Comes by Skailla
This song. [link] Listen to it.

aaw, nothing like drawing again after a long time being pushed around by people who think they can control my life :)
I feel a bit distrained tho, as some of you can probably notice, but I'm just happy to be producing art for you guys again! :dummy:

BUT aaaaaanyhow, About the pic:
Steban, our dear western doggy, racing with Faye, a character I've never introduced before, I believe. She's a lone traveler saluki, who is also a legend herself. She meets Steban and Martin in one of their adventures, and decides to later join the party for a while. For those who don't know her, she's the kind of girl who doesn't seem to care about anything. She's always got the right answers at the right time, and inspires trust and security to whoever speaks to her. But there are a few things about her past she secretly tries to keep to herself. And I'm not telling you now xDD
And of course, we must not forget little Martin, swearing and complaining right after them (as always) xD the poor thing can't keep up.


Anywaaaays, this scene came to my mind out of a sudden. I was randomly clicking on music videos on youtube the other day, and happened to find this song here: [link] LISTEN TO IT while looking at the pic. Just saying.

I'm not found of the band, but this song hit me like a lightening! All of the scenes that came into my mind are impossible to reproduce :'D
I thought the characters fit perfectly with this song, I could hardly believe. It's been a while I don't feel alive like I felt while drawing this. So even tho the pic is full of mistakes and stuff, I'm proud of it. Not because it turned out good, but because I had plenty of fun with it! :w00t:

The background was quite a pain, tho! xD but I somehow liked how the mountains turned out! :) too bad the colors are all messed up :/

Now I would really like to thank =DetectiveRJ and =Fade-in for the amazing drawings you two made for Martin and Steban :)
Seriously, I will never be able to thank you enough for the all the strength you gave me to continue their adventures! Thank you very much, once more!:thanks:

Beautiful <3 It fits the song so much and the fact you've added a saluki character is a definite plus
I really like the harsh orange lighting, it gives a warm but invigorating mood to the piece as a whole. Incredible piece! :3

Your art is so detailed and amazing. If you can animate, you should definitely try animating one of your comics.
