Conquering Tartaros by salison Conquering Tartaros by salison
Yeah, baby! Gift for the sizzlin' :icononetenmillion:! This was supposed to be a Christmas present for last year, but please take it as an OMG-thank-you-for-EVERYTHING gift instead, since it's almost been another year since then, and you've been beawesome to me all this time. Thanks a million! :icontearplz: Hope you like my interpretation of your characters and their world!

And I''ve decided to get serious about my artwork, like, kick-the-door-down serious! So I'm going to try to make my anime-inspired art as polished as possible, like this is. Let me know what you guys think!

Alex and her were-BFF Cherie and the Conquering Tartaros series :icononetenmillion:

I love the clean, crisp cell shading, and your lines are so fine and amazing and beautiful and I feel so jealous and inspired to draw BUT MOSTLY JEALOUS HOLY SHIT THIS IS SO GORGEOUS :iconsawbplz:
Both art and coloring is really beautiful, I can't wait to see your future works if they're gonna be like this ; 3 ;

OMG, THANK YOUUUU~~~!!! Your comment made me smile so hard! Joy is just bubbling inside of me after reading that. My works from now on will definitely be like this, (clean lines, crisp shading, and anime style!) and it means a lot to know you'll enjoy that. Oh, and I'm also working on a tutorial to show how I create art like this and help others get this effect in their artwork too. But you're so talented as is, you won't need it! ; u ;

Aaw ; A ; YEAH I SAW I can't wait for the tutorials! I've been wanting to know how to do anime screenshot-like coloring for a long time now. Your art is really good, both technically and art-wise, but with this it's like you just level-up'ed xD
And I'm not all that good, but being complimented by you makes me so happy THANK YOUUU Q3Q

You enjoying this that much just makes it all worth while. TTUTT And thank you! Coloring this was the most fun, but also the hardest for me. Spent a lot of time playing with the shadows, studying how they fall, especially on Cherie’s fur. (I shaded her twice before I found shadows I liked!) And just rendering everything at such a dynamic angle was a challenge, but an enjoyable one, and I learned a ton working on this. I’m just so relieved you like my version of them, and the sword, and everything meets to your approval! I love your characters and stories so much~! And thanks for always being there!!! /hugs you forever
