Guardian by LucidKitsune Guardian by LucidKitsune
Commission for Escaron of her guardian of the forest stag, Sirion! God I just loved this design, his antlers are CRAY-CRAY. But was fun to draw. I went way above what I was paid to do for this... I just couldn't help myself, I had a brilliant idea, and I had to go for it. I hope you like. ^___^

Elior breathes life into the plants, and Sirion protects them.

*was quite literally freaking out when I saw this*
you ma'am, have a skill and talent beyond that of the vast majority of artists I have encountered. 
this is incredible!!!!! O: 
I am still in love with the way you do lighting; you manage to manipulate it in such a way that the whole composition has the same light source yet nothing looks "pulled to the front"... like you've got spacial differences, and it all still has a wonderful sense of unity.  I also absolutely freaking LOVE the way you drew Sirion! he looks so collected, so serene... yet at the same time, the kind of creature you'd want to keep a distance from because they have that sense of unpredictability... like that god of life off of princess mononoke; beautiful, calm, yet unpredictable~ I also totally love the way you did the grass, and that plant springing up from the soil; with all the lovely swirly twinkly magic ahh! it's so precious! :love: the only thing I am a tad confused about is whether the white is snow, water, or rocks. I think it's snow though (?)
 
and those antlers...... MY GOD THE ANTLERS :iconohfuckplz: you were not kidding... and yet you did them just brilliantly WAI! *flailing* the way you shaded them, and the twisted horns, is just perfect. I am in awe... like I just want to reach out and touch them they look so real ;w; and you even made the shadows behind the ears... gosh, where does the awesomeness end?! D:
and then you have the shading of the creature itself;  I honestly cannot get over how amazing it looks. I LOVE how you have the short but still noticeable fur; short fur is ridiculously hard for me (and I'd bet a lot of others too) it can be so tough to make it look soft and fuzzy, yet not come out to far, but you got the look down 100%... D: I must learn from you and then there's the long wispy hairs that are so gorgeous I want to pet them as well >:C all blowing gently in the wind - looking and perfectly perfect. and just... DANG. the eyes and nose and hooves and things, all the little things.... they're awesome as well ;o; then again, all of it is awesome. 
the whole darn picture! :icondragonwant: your art is too freaking awesome

Your comments are always the best and make me feel so warm and fuzzy and I just wanna HUG YOU when you leave comments like this AHHH :icondragonhugplz:

I just. Wow I'm flattered so much by everything you said!  And yes... the white stuff is supposed to be snow ;A;  It um.. it will make more sense soon I promise xD  When I finish the other half of this painting.... I wanted it to look like springtime when the grass is growing but there's still some remnants of snow on the ground ^^  But I can see now how you would kinda be like... the heck is that white stuff. xD  

And who can go wrong with swirly sparkly plant magic!?!?!? :omgomg:  (Omg that icon of the guy with the D:  face.... I seriously LOL'd at that) I loved the idea that Sirion was the guardian of the forest and I definitely got a Mononoke vibe off of that. I had this idea and I just had to run with it, it was too good to pass up. :la:
Aieee.... just... thank you so much, if I could give an award for the best commenter in the world it would be YOU! la in love

it's impossible to go wrong with any swirly sparkly magic :iconimadplz: magic is love. magic is LIFE
(it's gotta be one of the best plz's out there lol) well, might I say that was an excellent idea :D I've seen a great many guardian of the forest themed images, but you managed to take a common theme and make it SUPER AWESOME O:
:happycry: awh gosh, you're welcome ;o; I like awards lol my gosh that would make an awesome gag gift though. best commenter award X3

*falls over from the overwhelming comment* :faint: 

AHHH. I'm so so so happy you like it ^___^ it gave me so much trouble and after staring at it for so long I was so frustrated with it, I wasn't sure how it would turn out! Llama Emoji-08 (Crying) [V1] But thankfully it turned out decent enough :D  I just hit a wall in my painting process about halfway through and I didn't know what to do, but I just kept picking at it and finally... This happened. xD  I just loved this character, he was a lot of fun to draw and his colors are my favorite--purple and green!! He was a huge challenge to draw but OMG I wouldn't trade it for anything :D   I'm sooooooo happy that you like it, that makes it all worth it!!!  Squish Hug 2 -  The Eye Poke :heart:  I don't even know what to say... I'm just thrilled that you like it! :la:
