Meridell Morning by Payoki Meridell Morning by Payoki
Something I drew for the Neopets Art Gallery!
I'm not too sure whether I should wait for Discovery of Meridell Day to submit it LOL but I'll just upload it first I guess...
I thought I should probably try to practice backgrounds BECAUSE I'M SO INEXPERIENCED WITH THEM AHAHAH and it took a while only because most of the landscape was done in one layer... I was trying to kill two birds with one stone trying to practice that too LOL although it was really just a serendipity that I happened to go over my drafty colours in detail on one layer.

Edit: Good lord a DD??!? Thank you so much guys omfg ;A;

Late, but congratulations on the well-deserved DD! I was blown away when I saw this in the Neo AG; the lighting is gorgeous and the composition's very striking, drawing the viewer into the scene's calm warmth and serenity. I really like the way you've shaped the branches with their uneven bumps and ridges, and how they frame the valleys below; I also like the way the thicker branches nearer the viewer are darker than the one pointing towards the light. I love the light on the branches and the hazy glowing light shining on the paths and the castle below; the whole atmosphere is strikingly beautiful, with a quiet energy that pervades and warms the scene.

The lighting and detail in your work is amazing, thank you for your stunning contributions to the Art Gallery and for sharing your other work as well =) (Also, your Pteri's design is adorable; I love the colors and the way you draw the tail. Had to say that somewhere.)

You're welcome, you deserve compliments for your great art! (haha I need to draw more of my neopets in general, I almost never draw them, only random pets for pet days... I'm apparently much more into coming up with generic oneshot doodles than getting invested in character customization and development heh.)

Ahah I see! I think doodling can be more practical for sure though 8)
I need to work on my pets too but I keep drawing things for the Art Gallery instead :P the prizes can be pretty rewarding heh

Haha yeah, I swear the creative contests that give item prizes are one of the most lucrative rackets on the site if you figure out how to win them regularly (i.e. just keep submitting) :P I feel awkward uploading neopets doodles to places like dA though because hardly anyone outside of Neo cares about them, heh. But that's partly why I like drawing for the AG, because I feel like not many people watch it and all ages and skill levels can win, so there's little pressure to compete and getting in is always a nice pick-me-up. It's rare to see really detailed Neopets fanart, so it's always really impressive when someone puts a lot of effort into a piece like you did here!

She is so charming! And I love the background - the perspective across the countryside and the very bright castle. She looks like she so wants to go there! I would love to tell this story! I write a non-commercial daily creative-writing blog - may I include this image with credit to you and a link back to here? Best wishes, Margaret

Oh! (Sorry about the late reply LOL) if you still wanted to that should be fine :) but since the content of this picture includes designs from Neopets, you'd probably need to credit them as well hahah ;;; thank you!
