This is Artemis, *Chuuchichu's beautiful ice bird boy! I had been wanting to spam patterns and details for a while, and found the perfect opportunity. I really wanted to spam 10x more details (jewelry, more patterns, etc etc) but my damaged shoulder can only handle so much.

Commissioned artwork; no critiques please. I don't want the flaws spelled out in front of my client ;~;

I'm happy with:
~the overall values and color scheme. Usually I have to do a lot of color and value/contrast tweaking before I'm even reasonably satisfied. With this picture, there was almost none of that.

I'm okay with:
~all the leeway I gave myself with the lighting. A careful observer will notice quite a few places where the lighting behaves differently than it would IRL. I'm fine with that, as the overall piece feels right to me.

Yes, his hair and wings have a color gradient to them. Aren't they pretty :heart:

Prints MAY be available later.

I absolutely love this- I think it's the wings that I like the most. I don't know if I'm misinterpreting this, but it looks to me as though light from stained-glass windows is shining through the feathers. Even if it isn't... beautiful! :D

@_@ An eye-opening comment. What would I think of my pics if I saw them as book covers at Barnes & Noble? "Wow, they really need to find a better artist"? "Hm, not bad"? "I WANT TO BUY THIS BOOK JUST FOR THE COVER"?

Sadly, I don't think any of my art would elicit the third response from myself. ;; Must work harder~!

sorry late reply @ o @

oh pff i've seen some awful book covers. u o u;
but i'd feel the same about my art. haha
yiissss we both will work harder! high5

the composition of the piece is definitely book cover like.. plenty of space for text and the colors would make the book pop out from the rest! *v*

Did you make the floor texture yourself or use an existing one?

I made the floor texture years ago and have been recycling it every time I need a marble-y texture. :D
