When Gold Turns Grey by A3ulez When Gold Turns Grey by A3ulez
This is a request I got about a month and a half ago. I've had it done for a while but thought it would be a pain to scan in. Surprisingly, it was not.

Acrylic on canvas, 4 days

It's always a pleasant surprise when a scanner cooperates. Mine has yet to be so considerate on these sorts of projects...

This picture rocks! The textures are excellent, and there's a good contrast of colors between the dark background and the goldish-brown...thing in the foreground. (What is that, by the way? It's probably going to be something really obvious, but I've just gotten back from vacation, and I seem to have left my brain back at the hotel...) I like the little bird design, too.

Out of curiosity, who's the person standing in the spotlighted grass? Anyone in particular?

Thanks very much =) Yeha, I was going to be adventurous and put the brown thing at a different angle so it was more obvious, but I kind of got lazy after the trees. It's just some siding to a stair case that's scaling that Mallorn tree. The person is supposed to be Arwen, but seeing as I don't like her, I didn't bother to make it too obvious, lol. This was a request I got off of Fanart-central =) Decided on your Astrid details yet ^^ ;) ;)?

I thought it might be a staircase, or something like that.

...Oop! I almost forgot about that. This month has been rather crazy compared to June. For some reason my brain was working in a Captain Goodfellow direction, but if you want to do Astrid, that's OK, too. I've got a more current design of Goodfellow in the works, though, whereas Astrid's design--with regards to costume and whatnot--hasn't really been finalized. But you could make up one for her if you want! Whichever is fine. I'll work out descriptions of both and just send you whichever one is most pertinent.

Oh okay, I forgot you had the 'or Goodfellow' part ^^ Nah, that's okay =) I think I'd intended to do Goodfellow and then forgot O.o You're the one paying, so you get whatever you want, lol! I wanted to do his noodle arms =)

Hee hee...noodle arms. :giggle: That makes for a funny picture.

In the redesign, though, he's not as noodley as I originally thought I'd make him. He still looks like a pansy, somewhat, but his ship has had gravity controls for a longer time now, so he's stronger in appearance than he initially was.

Hopefully I'll get these sketches and such finished by the end of the month. (...wow, it's been a month since I told you I'd commission you, and I still haven't gotten around to it...I really am a slacker...)

That's okay, hehe ^^ I've been gone for most of the month anyway =) Just whenever you feel like it lol. Things are... interesting around here right now. I'm still trying to decide how to even attempt journaling all this craziness.
