Dedicated to *elpinoy, because he's badass. This picture would not have been complete without his incredible patience, wisdom, advice and constant urging. Thanks, Chester, for pushing me this far.
This is Raven, my beloved OC.
I've been wanting to challenge myself for quite some time, and I finally did it. Here's my first go at lineless artwork/painting. It was friggen hard! And extremely time-consuming. I don't know how you people do it. HOW do you people do it?!
I also deliberately chose rather dramatic lighting this time round, cos I normally find it rather tricky.
I don't think I've ever worked this hard on a picture before; I was pushed to my very limits with this. And as tough as it was, I loved working on it. I've learnt so much from this piece, as well. I'm pretty happy with it.Edit #3:
THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR THE DD.
Thank you, thank you, thank you. This piece is very close to my heart, so I can't even begin to tell you how much I appreciate this.
