Your guardian by HASBEAN Your guardian by HASBEAN
Been working on this one for a while. The idea was to work on BG drawing, so ya have to tell me how I did.


About the image itself, this is supposed to be Artemis's home island, (eg. Devils island). Its full look is still under construction but it made a good test subject for BG practice. :) The chao in the picture is Artemis's little friend Pisca. The reason for the title is because Artemis protects Pisca, as she is a special little chao.

And yes she is wearing clothes >w>.....

This is truly amazing artwork! The colors are in harmony and the background is just awesome! The character blends in nicely there, not looking like it was some sort of sticker glued on top of painting XD it looks like she actually BELONGS in that background. This piece is also very inspiring, to me at least, as I need practice with bg I may sometimes try something like this.
Only thing I can say that mmmaybe the water waves could be bit more blurred? They look a bit too much like sharp lines drawn on top of blue layer. Other than that minor issue, this is stunning artwork :D
Thank you for bringing this up for us to see and enjoy!

This art you have done looks like a real masterpiece, I am truly amazed! I have honestly never seen something with Sonic fan character look so peaceful and relaxing before. I've mainly only seen action going on in a lot of them. I also love how you included a Chao as those aren't really seen in pictures anymore, so that's another thing that makes me find it amazing.

Anyway, I do have a tiny bit of criticism for the ocean in the picture, the lines are just the titchiest bit scribbled.(Not that it's too bad or anything!) That might just want fixing up a bit unless it's intended to be that way.

I'm just really amazed at this artwork, this is why I have given it 5/5 stars for everything. You did a really good job!

:iconflyingheartsplz:Wowwww... This is such a breathtaking piece of artwork! :iconluvluvplz:

The sky is so realistic, and the characters' eyes look just stunning!
The only things you could maybe improve on are the lighting(the light source in this picture is coming from the setting sun behind the focus of this picture, whereas right now it looks like the light source is coming from the left of the picture ^^;) and the texture of the water/tree, where you could add some more details, maybe? (Lol, sorry I'm not good with this kind of stuff... XD) But I hope maybe you can use this information to improve, and make your already almost-perfect artwork absolutely flawless! ^u^

There's no way I could do that good.  Only thing I can say is the water seems a bit under detailed compared to the rest.  Who am I to be a critic though, I've only done water once and I just put white lines on blue Grump.  I'm not good with words so I'll give it to you state.  This is amazing :D

I wouldn't say that. It takes practice and tutorials help. But its all learned skill. The water it the one thing everyone is telling me needs work so it must be true. :XD:
I always appreciate any input though~ So thank you :hug:

Yet again, the Background Expert (in my honest opinion) strikes again. :wow: This is just....... I can't even fathom how you are able to get this insanely detailed line-less background done... ;n;
Ahem, anyways, onto the critique and close appreciation of your drawing here before I get out of hand again. Here goes:

- First off, the clouds in the background are really spectacular in terms of how closely that they resemble to their realistic counterparts at the sea. Its dark underside with a rosy top-half, along with the faint yet visible stars in the sky around them, gives away the time that you'd intended to tell to your watchers, and I for one find it strangely coincidental that since Artemis is little Pisca's guardian, and according to my knowledge, people often look up to their guardians for protection and a sense of security, and thus, a Guardian is equivalent to the warm and comforting dawning sun that many people love to view (if you're the type of person who is able to wake up early and likes to bask in the early morning sun, in which I believe you seem to do, yes? ;)).

- The next point that I would look at would be the green floating peaks in the background. I like how there are these overgrown chains that actually link one island to another, it's as if there is some sort of a mysterious puzzle just waiting to be solved, but definitely for sure that it would be Artemis who's going to get to the bottom of it first before anyone else. :XD: Anyways, the huge shaded areas on certain parts of the peaks gives me a very good idea as to how the island peaks are shaped, and the fact that there are even smaller floating islands around them gives this place (Devil's Island, you called?) a mystical quality, yet also a majestic scenery.

- And in this part here, I'm just going to tell you how much I seriously love love love the way that you'd drawn the leaves and flowers in the foreground of this picture~ It's.... They're very beautiful, in a sense that they too resemble the real deal, mostly because they're lineless and the variety of colours that they have. Even the palm/coconut fronds are well done, despite the fact that there should've been a centre stem in which the fronds spread out from. Anyways, whew, that must've taken you a really long while to get each and every petal in this scene right. A fine job well done on that part, my friend~ :pat:

- And last but not least, the characters themselves in the middle of this picture. The pose that Artemis is in and how happy that little Chao is to be playing with happens to be the main attention and centre-piece of this picture. :aww: It's heart-warming, honestly speaking, and the little details such as the hanging feather and that beautiful little flower around Artemis's left ear just adds more of that wonderfulness to the overall picture~

Overall, you'd certainly outdone yourself again, my friend~
At least you've used "your" in it's correct function this time. :XD: Good enough.

XD well thank you~ :heart: Im actually not much of a morning person though .....:XD:

I did try really hard on those back peaks and rocks. Still a little unsatisfied with them but I think the concept I wish to display of the island needs a little more work before I'll try again.

:hug: I'm glad you like it ^^ and thank you so much for taking the time to point out all the things you like most in the image.

You're most welcome, friend~ :aww: Please, you wanted us to go into detail as to how you'd done on the environment, so Wynaut? Huh, and back then I thought you were one of those individuals.... Looks like I've been proven wrong. XD

Now that's the spirit there, friend. Have fun toying around with the concept of Artemis's island then~
