So far, yet so close by Tanathiel So far, yet so close by Tanathiel
Hello people :3

Sorry for the long silence :aww:
I'm doing some works lately, and here is my next piece.
This time it is an art-trade with :iconvenator-somniorum: :aww: She asked me to do a picture about her in her anthro-lynx form and her beloved in his human form in a different story.
The landscape is in Russia and both characters are connected to it. I will not mention the whole thing, because, she can tell you better if you are interested.
She is a soldier and her love is a general of some sort. This supposed to be a love scene. But because of the fact, that they are not always togeather (they leave far from each other :(), I thought it would be nice to make a picture, that is not an "ordinary" love theme, but it is about longing to the another one :aww:
I hope I have succeded.
Yet, I have some problems with the background this time, because it is a snowy landscape, it was a bit difficult for me to show deapth and such... I enjoyed to make the water and the reflection though :3 Note that what you can see, it is all first attempt/first time to draw such a thing. Only the lynx is not included in this, because this is my second anthro picture that I made.
All in all, I enjoyed this opportunity to try out some new ways. I'm partly happy with the outcome, but as you can see, I still have to improve some things considering backgrounds and such ^^;

Hm, now as you mention it is just a bit longer ^^;
I haven't realised it... But it isn't so bugging isn't it ? :3
Aside if this, I really loved playing around with the water reflection xD
I guess this is what made lack of concentration on the hands I think ;P ^^;
Oh well, better one next time ;)
Nah it's okay it almost doesn't show

Practice makes perfect ^^

Well I hope my next works will look good ^^
