Commission - DJ and IP by TastesLikeAnya Commission - DJ and IP by TastesLikeAnya
These two characters compliment each other so well, so it was a fun commission to do. :)
I've been looking at Claire Wendling's stuff, and it's been such an inspiration. This is a little different from my usual lineless stuff, but I lost the energy in this when I took the lines away.

Hope you like it. :D

Anya, your skill with lighting and mood is extraordinary, and can be seen in a piece like this. The animals are carefully rendered, and the colors you used for them are both fantastical, yet grounded in reality.


The simple background works well with the figures, and the small flecks of light and the tiny, cursive outline in the back are an especially nice, but not overbearing touch. I truly envy this background.

The figures themselves as I have said before, are nicely drawn with a very slick coloring scheme. Tigers and Leopards aren't the most original of the big cats to pick from, but since this was a commission I cannot really blame you.

If there can be any criticism, is that the picture is a bit on the small side, but that's but a minor nitpick and I don't enjoy nitpicking.

All in all, a very splendid and thoughtfully drawn piece. You truly are a wonderful artist!

So I've got to tell you, when I blew this up to full view, one of the kittens I'm fostering lays down next to the computer, then reaches up with her paw and taps the fireflies infront of the characters.

She approves :3

And so do I. I reallly love the dark jaguar, but they're both beautiful!

Hurrah for expressive lines! These together really create a bouncy motion. The light purple stroke probably kicks my mind into thinking that way too. I love the jaguar's saggy lip. I'm not sure I've ever seen a muzzle done like that. As minute a detail as it is, I still like it :)

Critique? I'm not really sure. It really depends on the commissioner's specifications. Personally, Island Punch pops out a bit too much with her bright stripes and warm colors. Perhaps a warm colored background would have made DJ stand out a little better and balanced the colors out?

This makes sense. Maybe I should have made it green, heh. Being opposite sides of the colour wheel is a problem in this case.
Maybe should have left it white. Blah. Will keep in mind for next time.

Thanks much! I had fun with the jaw. Redid it a few times, so glad it was worth it.
