Traveler by FionaHsieh Traveler by FionaHsieh
I HAVE RETURNED FROM MY LAIKA SUMMER. THE PEOPLE WERE ADORABLE. AND IT WAS PRETTY SWELL.
.....IT WAS PRETTY SLIGHTLY SWOLLEN... swell... swollen.. 

(..laughs. laughs to self.)

I worked on their fourth and fifth films!! The film after Box Trolls and the film after that film... It was great to see how actual production works and meet all these cool adorable peeps.

Also, the PUPPETS and the SETS... HONESTLY SERIOUSLY SO FREAKING AMAZING... THESE PEOPLE... I WAS MIND-BLOWN FOREVER. AS IN MY MIND WAS BLOWN AWAY ACROSS THE GALAXY bye mind.
And the ANIMATION... on the fourth film... IS SO PERFECT... I CAN'T BELIEVE..
you guys have something completely amazing in store... for the next 8 years or so... LOL

AND well, now back to school... one year left! before I am set loose upon the world! I will probably cook many burned things and catch many objects on fire.

anyways...

does this picture look too dark on your monitor? WHY ARE ALL MONITORS DIFFERENT. Monitors need to stop being so difficult and monitor...cist. Monitorist? Sigh.

This is just kinda trying out different looks for my film and whatnot. :faint: Now I'm divided on how I want the film to feel... Maybe I'm actually just doodling forests and wolves and I'm just making the excuse that this is for my film. I may never know. The world may never know. The universe may never know.

wow, i really love this :)
there are all those shadows in the trees (and those trees are massive) and then there is that sunlight streaming in - gives it a kind of fantastic atmosphere

The feel of this is very hopeful, with a little bit of dark stuff, ness... eh.
I really love your authors note. It sounds like you're floating about five inches of the ground and staring at bright lights.

What brush would give me the texture of your piece? I really like it! :D

I actually used a lot of different brushes and separate textures, depending on what I was drawing! I used maybe five different brushes for the trees and five other brushes for the ground... 

I really like the brush set called Blur's Good Brushes :D you can find it if you google it

Love the style, colors and everything! This is really very nice. It looks fine on my iPad, and I imagine it would make one heck of a wallpaper. Awesome work! C:

So pretty! I agree, monitors are evil. For me the background is still dark, but it's mixed with beautiful light-dust and cloud-stuff-of-awesome enough that it feels just right on my monitor. There's just something about having absolutely massive trees with a small detailed wolf for the focus that looks beautiful :D

Ohgawd I love reading your descriptions. XD ("swell"... "slightly swollen". LOL)
Nice seeing new works from you, and the color looks fine (the foreground is almost purely black on my screen though, unless that's how you painted it to be... and yeah, I know what you mean by the colors coming out weirdly on different monitors.)
Great work, as always~ ^.^

LOL I'm glad you read them! 8D I'm afraid it's too long and pointless for most people to read through AHAH
aw darn.. the colors shouldnt be black in the foreground :noes: I just edited and lightened it a bit though- is the foreground more visible now? Confused 
and thank you! :D

Naah, I find it pretty cool. Gotta love backstories! XD
And now, I see hints of purple in the foreground, and perhaps tree bark. I'm sure I'd see this well if I were on iPad; don't worry too much, the focus point of your piece is very clear (it's... it's the wolf right? ... Right...? 0.0). But yep, I see it better!

You're welcome and have an awesome daaay~ ^.^
