Nym by charlottei Nym by charlottei
So! This has been what I've been working on pretty much all weekend. I as unexpectedly busy yesterday so it took me longer than expected to get it done, but I'm glad I'm finished now. :D

I've found myself saying this a lot recently but it was really good to do - lovely character, :iconaptic:'s caracal Nym - and a challenging colour scheme, even if I did mess up the background, as always. I tried to make it a bit more rough and painterly than usual but I'm still unhappy with my style.
Maybe one day. xD

I used a freakishly huge canvas too - started off at over 4000px wide but I had to shrink it because my laptop just couldn't deal! Finished off at around 1500px - download for full size. :)

|| Crits appreciated! Help me improve! ||

Character (c) *aptic
Art by me.

Haha, thanks. :D
And it's, um, behind the other one? (that's what I get for changing the pose at the last minute!)

Oh my goodness! This was BEYOND what I was expecting!! Wow! ^D^
I think you did such an excellent job with the shading- purples, blues, blacks, pinks! It creates a soft feeling, yet mysterious at the same time! :la: You used such lovely textures that suited the picture, and they look so real! I am impressed by the effects of the clouds- almost like a wisp of smoke to shade a bit of the moon. So awesome!!

As for Nym, you drew her perfectly! The anatomy is so accurate, and I just loved how you had colored her! Her facial expression is most darling, and such a fiery glow in her eyes! Oh my goodness, I am so overwhelmed! :D

This is probably by far one of the best fan arts I have received. I appreciate the effort and time that you put into the picture for me, and I must repay you by drawing up fan art of Glimmer as well! I looked through your gallery, and she is absolutely beautiful. :love:

I want to thank you so much, Teide! :) You have truly made my day with this picture! Thank you very very much. :hug:

Sure! I need some more things to do anyway. (:
(Btw you should definitely do the song 'Galaxies' for the next part of your Owl City project! The start bit has my birthday in it. xD [link])
