Crowfeather by ashkey Crowfeather by ashkey
Like the last few, I tried to do this in under an hour. But then a hummingbird catapulted himself into the window (same thing happened yesterday roflcopter) and we spent a while trying to bring the little guy to his senses. Here's a picture of him sitting on a pencil before he got a grip and flew away. So cute

After that, I forgot how to draw or something loool vacation you are good to me.

Crowfeather in the ~fiery sunset~ of Windclan moors or something. I looove this character


Crowfeather from Warriors series by Erin Hunter.
Media: Corel Painter Essentials, Photoshop | 3 hours (frowning)

First off, this is amazing!
I think you incorporated the sunset and the shadows really nicely.
Just wondering what that think black line is near his mouth. It captured my gaze almost right away. If it is a shadow, I suggest making it a bit less black. You got his face almost perfect; though the left ear is bothering me a bit.
The main thing I adore about this piece, is that instead of making him black, you grabbed some of the sunset color and made his fur into a smokey orange, with highlights and low-lights, great contrast!
You shaded it in a way that you can tell that it's windy, which I love.
Keep up the terrific work!
What do you think?

Exellent. The eyes are very pretty. I could NEVER get my cat eyes to look that way. It is very realistic.
The left ear is a bit off, a little too pink at the top, black cats ears are black unless you are acctually looking into the ear.
The sunset is great! It looks windy, which is also great.
I greaty enjoy how you made the sunset reflecting in his fur.
You added perfect amount of shadows and shading to make his appearance amazing. It is much better then anything i could EVER do.
Just beautiful, really, really beautiful. Keep up the good work!

Oh my, the shading in this is so gorgeous! I really love the lighting and the clouds *squeals* and everything else in this piece. If I would change anything I would have made him a little darker, I think he has been said to have almost black fur at different times in the books, but other than that It's great! Clap

Your pantings are the greatest things I've ever seen! So realistic yet so much emotion, they're amazing
I was wondering, though, I thought Crowfeather had a short pelt? Like on the cover of Twilight

Thank you very very much! :la: He does have short hair - it might look long here because I drew it being ruffled by the wind, but it's intended to be short, Lol. Thanks for the nice comment!

I didn't mean to sound criticizing, sorry if I did ^^' He looks amazing (as well as your others) 
If you take suggestions, maybe you could do Briarlight? (Full body would be beautiful in your style but Briar in general <3)

Nope not at all! Lol I love hearing people's observations - a lot of the time it's something I never even considered, which is really interesting.

Briarlight is a really good suggestion!! I'll add her to the list, thanks <3 I loved her so much in the series

She was such a wonderful cat, yes. Reminds me almost of Cinderpelt, how they both could have been amazing warriors.

About the hummingbird thing, a few months ago a hummingbird hit my window and then it was just twitching on the deck and it couldn't fly away so I put on a towel and watched it and gave it water with sugar in it.  but then It died so I buried it.  It was so sad.

That is so sad :[[ I'm really glad this one lived. We had another bird hit the window this summer (just one, thankfully) and it died pretty much instantly. I wish they could see the glass better!

Wow. Just - just wow. I've always wanted to proceed to a higher level of drawing like that.. how long did it take you to perfect something like this?

ashkey Featured By Owner Feb 17, 2013  Professional General Artist
Thanks for the comment! This is an interesting question because I know what you're talking about but I'm not completely sure how to answer, haha. I don't feel like I've perfected anything, though I was sorting old drawings last month and I noticed a couple jumps in skill and technique, but it was gradual over a few months. I've been drawing for 12 years, so everything I know now is from drawing (practicing), observing, and studying all that time. I think if artists experiment and practice and have fun and are receptive, eventually they're reach that higher level without realising it.

You're welcome! Makes sense, haha. I'm sort of new with my new style of drawing, since my other style is.. eh. But same here, I've noticed many improvements in my more recent creations than before, so I just try to add to it. Thank you so much, I hope I wasn't much of a bother. :)
