Commission: Averie and Miranda by Kitty-Cat-Angel Commission: Averie and Miranda by Kitty-Cat-Angel
Commission for :icongibbo18: of his characters, Averie and Miranda.

He requested a commission from me ages ago and I just always got busy when trying to start one for him. So I decided to finally get over myself and do it. Besides, I've been wanting to draw these 2 characters for a while.

The grass was painted blade by blade, because I'm a masochist. Otherwise I like how the colours turned out.

Here are Gibbo's character design sheets so you can see where the characters came from and how I've adapted them:

Averie:


Miranda:


Enjoy! :D

Thanks! I did offer to make it a print so we can sell it at rAge. It's still a collab in a way because the characters are his after all XD

I really like the glow from the portal and the poses are both feel pretty dynamic. That grass really does look like it must have taken forever! :O

The colors used on Averie are saturated much more-so than the colors used on Miranda and the rest of the image; my eye is drawn to her right away. I feel that if you were to up the overall saturation of the rest of the image, or were to mute Averie's colors the image would come together quite nicely.

The characters turned out great, they are both very cute =)

I actually brought up the saturation for the image overall. I feel that if I saturate Miranda too much her colours may get too far from her character design or too bright, but maybe I could have contrasted her more?

Thanks!

No, I think that you are right about Miranda, you did a great job on this one though =) I may be over critical of over/under saturation because I struggle with it myself :XD:

I did make sure to add more saturation before finalising because you and a few others did suggest it last time, so at least I did remember! XD

I don't think I could paint that grass blade by blade without going absolutely bonkers. The mouse girl is adorable, and the avian done really nicely, I love her face.

This is great! Haha doing the individual grass blades actually paid off imo. The long way almost always is the best way. I really like this :-)

The grass was okay once I did one field's worth, because I just duplicated and tweaked after that XD It looks better than using a brush though.

Thanks, Liza!

Yesh. I did have to be careful because areas clumped and stuff, so had to tweak it quite a bit.

looks great, I especially like the avian chick - but (know-it-all arse comment follows) you do know that you could have set your brush on scatter instead of painting each blade of grass right?

Think this pic would be any good for Velocity?

moray-eel Featured By Owner Aug 1, 2012
It is very nicely done, but not narrative enough to fit with Velocity.

my favorite pic of yours is actually the water tribe/avatar pic, so something like that (but your own characters and they can be anthro) And in an environment... I always tell contributors to tell a story with their pinups: it should be the moment before the action OR in the middle of the event OR showing the aftermath.

mail me with some ideas and we can talk it through but yeah it would be great if you could do me some Velocity-ing :)

AH ok, cool stuffs :D That helps.

I'll see when I can do something. Just doing a bit of fanart at the moment for my own relaxation and then see what time I get before rAge. I may only make the next year.

I don't use grass brushes, it looks too manufactured. Besides, it didn't actually take that long >_>

And each blade of grass? You're a self-murderess. But it paid off, it looks stunning.
