Yush, it is done! I'm so, so happy with this! I started the background as an excercise, but I loved it so much I decided to use it for the full round. I used a tutorial for it (linked down below), which was super helpfull. I played around a lot with brushes, blending and actually not blending (I tend to over-smooth things). I tried to get a similair look for Thrys and gosh, do I love how it turned out! It has texture, people! I used waterpaint brushes which blend wonderfully and it helped very much with getting a paintery feel. Definitely going to use this style more often!

Very nice atmosphere! Also nice touch of detail with the more vibrant colors in the foreground and paler colors in the distance. Cute dragon expression, too. :D

Aaaaah~! This is so pretty. Thank you so much! Look at my dumb handsome son sunbathing~! So. Cute. And just like him after a hard shift.

The background is gorgeous as well. It immediately took me back to this one day where I couldn't sleep and stayed up to watch the sunrise--the first time I'd ever seen it at my now old house. The morning was so misty and it came up over the hills and everything felt clean and refreshing and calm... That's just what I feel looking at this piece.

Thank you so much for bringing that memory back to me!

Glad I got him right! And thank you for sharing the memory n.n I live in the flat, flat Netherlands, so seeing the sun coming up through the hills sounds like an amazing sight I'd love to see one day!

Yush~! *squishes him*

You're welcome. I tried looking for a picture from it since I was sure I'd have had my camera with me, but I didn't upload the one I had in mind. Although I was able to figure out the memory was from 2007 because of my digging. (sta.sh/0sb4b9cabgt Sorry for not linking to the original, but it's on my old account and I'm not in the mood to explain away younger me. Pfft.) So strange that it felt longer ago than that. I was in a completely different head-space even. Something as simple as a sunrise was a moment of clarity in hazy darkness. Okay, that sounded better in my head... *shifty eyes* Anyway...

I guess where I live certainly has some impressive hills and even mountains, but I don't get out much. Pfft. I really need to explore more!

Also, I just looked up Neatherlands for the scenery and my word you weren't kidding about the flat. Although it looks like you have far more color than where I am in California. Pfft. Very gorgeous.

Do you have any favorite scenes you could share? Or interesting photographs you've taken?

Oooh, pretty sky n.n It's not that weird, 9 years can make a HUGE difference! Hell, even one year can!

Hahaha, yeah, a lot of foreigners are like "how is this so flat?!". Well, you know, glaciers and stuff. Hmmm, gonna dig through some photo's for you. 
We also have some pretty skies n.n sta.sh/0mjpa5bkze3  and this is the channel I live at sta.sh/0225gc4oo9i5

Makes me really miss getting out with a camera. I bought a new one but I've hardly even used it. One of these days I'll have to take it with me when I go hunting Pokemon. Pfft.

You're so right there. Time can be so crazy when I really think about it. *laughter*

Gosh, what a lovely area. I'd have a blast exploring and taking pictures of the water there. Do you ever upload your photography for the sake of art or is it more along the lines of "oh, I'd like to keep this memory."

O, I forgot to mention I didn't take the photo's myself ^^; These are take by my sister HappyBleuDragon, who posts nature pictures every now and then. So for me it is more of a memory thing n.n

Oh wow, I really love the color palette here! I also adore the background a lot. It gives off a vibe as if it's painted and I'm a sucker for painted backgrounds ;w;
