Commission - Tasair by TastesLikeAnya Commission - Tasair by TastesLikeAnya
Yay! I finally finished this. :dance: It's a commission for ~Calicolupe of her character Tasair.
This was a struggle to colour at first - backgrounds are something I need more practice at (so this was a good learning experience that also turned out well).
Hope you like it. :) I made Tasair a bit light, I realized... I can fix that up if you like very easily. He was pretty hard to shade being so dark with those light markings is all.

Tasair belongs to ~Calicolupe

-NOT A NEOPET- no laws are broken.

Yay for backgrounds! I really like how you did the rocks of the wall and the bar surface.

Interesting character. I really like the shading of the head and how you did the neck! It doesn't seem like you put as much detail in the tail and especially in the foot.

Does he glow? If not, his colors are very saturated for being in such a dark place. I can tell there is a light source off to the left of the image that is lighting him up, but the light source doesn't really seem to interact with the setting.

In regards to the setting, I'm a little confused about it. I assume, at first glance he is sitting at a bar, but there doesn't seem to be any space beyond the bar for a bartender to walk. It's as if the counter top goes straight into the back bar wall. Also, there doesn't seem to be any space for Tasair's other leg. There's no indication of it behind the stool and there doesn't seem to be any space between the stool and the bar. I think a lot of this weirdness could be fixed by having the light source I mentioned earlier interacting with these areas.

Yeah, the bar was at a bad angle. It's pretty much straight on. There is meant to be a gap, yes. Next time I will choose an angle at which everything is more clear.
OHSHIIII I forgot to finish the foot. Will do.
Yeah, I had a lot of trouble with the shading/lighting on the character and making it work with the bg. In the end this was the best I could do, unfortunately. (Though I am sure there is a better way of doing it.)

There totally isn't enough space for Tasair's leg, it seems. X(

Thanks for the crits and comments. I definitely need you around when I am working in progress. :)

He's a draconian. ;3 Dragon-man. Not a Neopet in this image, though I do have a Krawk-form of him, as well.

Awesome painting as always! I really like how the background turned out, but I think you could put some more contrast between the floor and the bar's wall.

The textures really made it for this. I was wondering why it looked so plain, and I forgot to add all that stuff.

OMG!!!!!!!!!!!! Super fucking gorgeous!!!!!!

MY only crit is the dark shadow behind Tasair, especially the muzzle part of the shadow. Since there are candles which are farther away to the background compared to the character, the wall should be lighted instead of the shadow?

:icontasteslikeanya:
TastesLikeAnya Featured By Owner Feb 26, 2011  Professional Filmographer
Yeah, there was meant to be a big major light source, but it's been totally washed out by the candles. Whoops. That does look very wrong.
Thanks, too!
