What Lies Ahead by Skailla What Lies Ahead by Skailla
Art Trade with my dear friends *Nakouwolf and *Seppyo!! :heart:
they asked me for their characters Akouma and Clerk .

Well, Akouma is a human character, and THIS was the first time I actually tried drawing humans decently on photoshop TT-TT
It was quite a challenge, but I had a LOT of fun! =D

I apologize for any anatomy mistakes I have probably made. Yes, actually, I have made many, I know xD but please feel absolutely free to give me tips and point out stuff, I'd love it! :)

The background was a happy accident xD it took me very long to make, but I think I was happy with how it turned out.

I thought about a little story while I was drawing this, something like Akouma and Clerk went out on a journey, but they had kinda lost track of what they were looking for. Akouma suddenly realizes they were walking the right path all along, and looks with adventurous eyes to the unknown horizon, while Clerk is still amused by what they see :la:


I really hope you two like it! :heart:
It was a great pleasure doing an art trade with you!

Obs: I'm not open for trades at the moment :( but someday, maybe during a holiday or so, I might do some other :)

I was paying so much attention that I was stricken by your work that it wasn't until after I realised I was accidently burning my hand. crap. But this is really good! Very good attempt on the human. Well done.

Awww both are adorable! <3 That drawing is completely different of our last collab'-trade, and I simply love it as mush as I did for the other one :heart:

First of all, I would like to thank you one more time for accepting our projet and to still like it! That's just a pleasure to trade with someone so happy to draw our characters (and someone which had beautiful characters aswell 0 = ) :XD:). I hope you won't be disappointed by our part (I personnally prefer the result this year than the last one, but I'm not sure you'll have the same point of view, I hope so!). For the comment, the happy accident and your first human try just revealed you're very talented :heart: I love the idea of both following something ; something magic I hope! <3

For the drawing itself... I truly love the atmosphere :heart:! Compared to the last time where we had a day scene, here's the night, and we both really like it :heart:! I love the colors and the background, especially the mountains and the clouds (brush or homemade?) I love how you made the ground, with some grass, some lighter reflect (as if the snow was starting to stay at the floor), the natural gradient (dégradé?) with the texture :heart: And the idea of the snow falling down! :heart: I love snow! But I never have snow in my area... --" You've drawn a dream there! :la: x)

Now the characters: I'm quite impressed by Akouma! You really are incredible for trying drawing her as a human, that show you don't draw only animals and you wanna try others things, I'm admirative! And the result is beautiful, really :O_o:! I love her face, her hair and the position you've made! Not the simpliest one -you're quite crazy at the end, aren't you? x) - but a truly hard-working one! All the clothes are well drawn, there are probably some anatomy's problem, but as I'm a beginner, I don't see them and I like it as it deserve to be liked! But I especially like the lance :heart: I love the idea it shines to guide them, and that's a good point for the light / shadow works! A good idea :heart:
Clerk is beautiful, I love to see a drawing with him, 'cause most of the time people draw Nakou, that change a little :heart: I don't have the feeling he's looking at the horizon, but he's looking at us, maybe he's trying to understand why so many people look at him like that... :lol:! Like if he was asking "What are you doing there, in our journey? O.O" x) I love his eyes and his position, with a paw up, like if he was about to walk :heart: Maybe he could even comes in front of Akouma to protect her. His position reminds me how much he's a faithful companion, but shy, 'cause he still seems to stay in some way behind, but still here.

Well, my english is truly bad here, I'm sorry for all the possible mistakes I've made, I just hope you'll understand the essential: your part is awesome :heart: I didn't expected it so fast O.O And I'm completely in love with the result, that's quite mysterious, epic, I love it :heart:
Thank you so much :heart: :iconspazhugplz:!
I truly feel lucky for having a trade with you <3

This is amazing Skailla. I just love the background and the colors. It has sort of a dark, mysterious atmosphere. :love:

And OMG, asjsdjgkdj your humans are incredible, especially being your first time! Me, I have an inability to draw humans. I can't do much more than a stick figure.
If there are any mistakes in you're anatomy at all- and there very well may not be- I think that the nose is slightly too long, and it makes the eyes and mouth look a bit too far apart.
BUT IT'S STILL AMAZING!!!

Though I think her right thigh looks kinda short. Otherwise, I think the rest of the anatomy is okay, nothing glaring or weird :D
