Ooo. Oooo yes. That is marvelous lighting there, loooooove the interplay of lights and shadows, especially across his form. The little details like the leaves on the branch and the wood grain and everything works wonderfully along with the composition to give it a sense of space within the image.

I just want to say Thank You again for such a wonderful image. The pose is perfect, and the lighting & reflective surfaces are beautiful as is the representation of Shasari :) A very well balanced piece between the cherry branch and the figure (my fursona Shasari). Great work!

OuO I love this >u<
Question though: I've seen a lot of your pencil sketches, but I can't quite tell with this. For the lines, did you just do a really neat pencil sketch and digitally color it, or did you do a lineart? And if you did, what program(s) did you use?

Really lovely, as always C:

Aw, thank you!

The lines for this are pencil, turned down to 60% opacity, I think. It's probably less that they're neat and more that we can't see them much here. XD Veeeery rarely I'll do line art digitally, and when I do I use Photoshop and an Intuos tablet.

Thanks very much! I thought it was something like that, because you seem to really like pencil, and you use it well, so you really don't need to do digital linearts. And ooh, I have an intuos too :)

Keep up the great work >u< (Especially the brainspews. The brainspews are super~)

the realisticness of the tile, wood, and the objects set upon the table is astounding. I'm very impressed. The fullness of the character brought on by the light and shadow is also way believable. D': this is really great. I could seriously take some notes on how to improve from this. :aww:

Nice work !
I love to see the Tai Chi posing, and the light.

just one remark: when you practice Tai Chi (at least, the variant I know), this movement is only done in the other way, left foot and left hand forward.

Wow, this is really amazing! Your grasp of anatomy is wonderful; those muscles! I love the soft, subtle shading you used, too. Even the small details of the pink buds and vase just add so much. :heart:

What I enjoy most about this is how the plant and the lion are kind of mimicking each other, which i assume was the point. Beautiful lighting and the vase/candle display is hard for me to take my eyes off of! :lol:

It was the point indeed! Thank you for noting that, and I'm glad you like this! I pretty much drool over all your paintings (so colorfullll!) so... yes. XD Thank you!

This both calms me, and invigorates me. I love the pose, balance, and focus this has. I also want to snuggle in to his main. I don't think that would be very zen like, though.
