- the winter caretaker - by BlackKrogoth - the winter caretaker - by BlackKrogoth
This was the holiday card I sent to my friends. Unfortunately, given the insane amount of time this took, the insane amount of work I had to do, and the insane SHORTAGE of time I had, they didn't get a finished version. Not to mention, the printer BASTARDIZED my detail, so ARGH. So here is what it was meant to be. It's supposed to (as usual of me) have more detail, but I decided my piece of shit computer couldn't take anymore of it (it takes fifteen minutes to save @_@).

Anyway, done entirely in Photoshop (again). I've learned to use the pen tool more effectively to create the inked outline (yes, the outline is PEN TOOL'D), so yay. And it was hard to get different enough blues to differentiate between the different things >_<.

Anyway, hope you guys like. Sorry to my friends who all got the unfinished piece ;_;.

Your skill with the pen tool astounds me still. And pretty boys are always good.

*pets* printers always do evil things to... everything.

Oh but I love this so! I love the way you've placed him within a circle, and then had parts of the composition break the circle (rather than leave it static and completely encircled). And I love that odd flower added in there... so pretty... as are the little decorative details. You're just.. insane for the detail you throw in your pieces,seriously.

I know! I don't think I've ever been satisfied with any print or even a scan of my art. Thanks so much for your kind words! I hope life is treating you well!
