Thank you very much, and pffbt - just because someone is good at something doesn't make you bad ;P (although it's a tempting feeling, I know :b)

This is awesome! You should be proud! Ten hours *attempting* this and I'd only get the sketch done. :giggle:

I really love the concept of this piece.
I love how you did all the detail of the background, and that fur detail!
Also, that soft glow of the fire looks really fantastic, and I love how the lighting and shading of this. :aww:

Thank you very much :) I was pretty happy with the lighting/atmosphere, was worried it'd come out too clean/sterile - I think if anything, it came out too dirty XD

Thanks again <3

Wow O.o Very interesting art commish :D I would have never conjured up such an idea. Awesome job, as always. I love the dark tone of it, while you still managed to make the important details pop

Yeah, I thought it was kinda neat! One of the joys of commissioning is you come across crazy, cool, interesting ideas that you might never have come up with yourself :) Never would have considered doing a haunted or hellish mine shaft (although now that I mention it, sounds like perfect fodder for a horror game or story!), but it was pretty fun :3

Oh, good, I was worried it would show up as TOO dark - I wanted it to be dark and grungey, but not unintelligible :b

So true! I have a hard time coming up with ideas myself. I look forward to when i get to a skill level to make commish ideas like this happen for people <3 Oh you're so right! xD That would make a great scene for a game :nod:

No, no, you found a beautiful balance in that regard :D

Oh, thanks!

My boyfriend's a coal miner and I worry my head off 24/7...this was just what I needed *sarcasm*

But seriously, really fantastic! The texture is fantastic, and I love the glow, and the dog (wolf?) It's all just great :D

Thank you very much :) And yeah, he's supposed to be a black husky, but he sorta looks like a wolf :b

I sure hope he makes it out of there okay...

You paint so well! Did you take lessons, or practice non-stop? :D

jocarra Featured By Owner Feb 11, 2013  Professional Digital Artist
Heh, I'm sure he'll be fine :) I mean, he does this for a living, and he's survived this far...

Thanks a lot! No, I haven't really taken lessons, but I practice by using lots of references, and looking over tutorials and artists' unfinished pieces to see how they do things, to see if I can learn anything :)

Hmm...I'm afraid I haven't a lot of patience; I like to see things finished quickly...which is my most of my gallery is drawings and phtotography, lol :) Sometimes I paint, but it's nothing spectacular... :)

jocarra Featured By Owner Feb 12, 2013  Professional Digital Artist
Hahaha, yeah, I can sympathize with that! Although, you should see my boyfriend do photo touch-ups, he'll spend forever fiddling! And with minute differences, too, that no one can ever tell the difference, like tweaking levels or something... 1.05? Or 1.06? 1.05? 1.06?...

lol, I get that way a little, but I don't spend a whole lot of time on it...I know I should, since I love photography, but there's so much to see, so little time it seems :)
