“Failure is not the end but the beginning of a beautiful journey."
Contest entry for the Autumn Air contest held by
My little journey was the time I spent drawing this. It had it's ups and downs but I never stopped to look back on my mistakes, instead I looked forward to learning new things. c:
I'm so happy I uploaded this in time. I had a drawing ready a week before but I made a last moment decision to change the sky, which led to changing the ground and in the end changing Arrow's position xD
And I am glad that I made that decision because after all those references, painting, textures, refining, balancing the colours I was finally able to call it finished. I am very pleased with the end result. I don't think I ever spent so much time refining any drawing before this x)
I learned a lot during the drawing process, and if I may call this: a major improvement in my backgrounds. It took quite some time to do but after this, I'll surely get faster (:
And I think this will now classify as a full colour image.
I hope you like it! c:
