You Are the Best Daughter a Father Could Ask For by Waittiz You Are the Best Daughter a Father Could Ask For by Waittiz
"DAD!", Twilight screeched when she saw the bleeding wolfgryphon who just landed there. Darkwind took a step closer to her.
"Twilight", he said with a weak voice, blood dripping from his beak. He tried to smile but at the same time he lost his strength and fell to the ground. Twilight hurried to his side. "You are the best daughter a father could ask for", Darkwind whispered to her.
"Dad...", she whispered back. Tears appeared into the corners of her eyes. Darkwind's gaze darkened for a moment but then he smiled happily to her daughter.
"Twilight, my little treasure... Head up, now", he croaked. "I'm not going to let you inherit the task of dealing with this war. I love you way too much to let that happen. Be brave, my little one. I'll be fine... just after resting for a while". And he closed his eyes.

_ _ _ _

Yeeeeeaah... First of all, you know, I could advice you not to change the style of making leaves in the middle of the working process (*points at the trees and the bush*)

No matter how dear Darkwind has became to me I apparently haven't done ever before a proper piece of art of him (or have I?). Shame on me! But now we have this. Random little picture... I'm not even myself too sure about what's happened before the events of this picture but I guess DW had a little fight with a dragon or a gryphon or you-name-what before this. The idea for this picture just popped into my mind while I was sitting down _trying_ to have a nice moment of doing nothing at all. But when the inspiration AND motivation strikes, you'd better take the advantage of it, right? So instead of IRL-idling I killed my hand.

Was I supposed to say anything about Twilight here... Hm, oh well... Sorry, Twi. I like you anyway.

Alternative title for this picture could have been "Wolfgryphon's Secret Cannabis Garden"... Not meant to be that, though.

Darkwind (Sysituuli), Twilight (Finnish name not decided yet) & art (c) me

What, an Oblivion overdose? What's that?

This is very well done. :D That background is so pretty. I've always loved your gryphons. They're so cute! :meow: I love the perspectives too. That's something I'm always struggling with. :XD: I'm always eager to see new art from you. :D

Thank you very much! ^^ And I've always loved to draw gryphons but for some reason I still don't draw them that much... Maybe I should draw them more often :B And I'm glad to know you like the ones I've drawn! I usually am absolutely terrible with perspectives. And it really didn't help that I once got quite a lesson about them from our animations teacher. That kinda made me feel like staying away from perspectives xD

Vautsi! Tykkään hahmojen designista ja väritys on aika miellyttävä yhdistelmä cell-shadea ja... sitä semmoista pehmeämpää tyyliä. xD Mukavan näköistä. Erityisesti tykkään myös Sysituulen kaulapörröstä. Kivan näköistä karvaa/höyhentä.

Hm, noita etummaisia puita olisin ehkä blurrannut enemmän, nyt ne vähän häiritsee silmää.

Kait se on ihan cel-shadeja ja soft shadeja. Ehkä... No ainakin jonkinsorttisia soft shadeja 8) Ja karvahöyhen lienisi paras kuvaus tuohon kaulahöttöön xD Ehkä niiden pitäisi kuitenkin olla enemmän höyheniä, mutta joku peelo vähän innostui varjostelemaan niitä liikaa karvamaisiksi.

Öm, ehkä se vika niissä onkin ettei niitä etummaisia ole blurrattu ollenkaan. Minulla on tästä myös yltiömäisesti blurrailtu versio, mutta tykkäsin tästä blurraamattomasta enemmän. Ehkä vähemmän blurrattu-blurrattu versio olisi ollut hyvä.

Kiitoksia kommentista! Hauska nähdä sinuakin välillä täällä xD

secret cannabis garden.. that would have been something XD
But you have done such amazing work on all those feathers, I really love the colouring you have done on the characters~!
It is a very nice perspective you have managed to draw as well, as it suits very well with the depressing story in the description, very touching concept overall <'3

At least the secret cannabis garden would give my stories a bit of a new perspective, I think xD
Thank you so much for your awesome comment! I'm glad you think so of the feathers. They're fun to draw, but I'm not always too keen about shading them ;D It's also good to hear that about the perspective I used here. I'm way too often drawing things either straight from the front or side so I need some change for that :p

It would. A very interesting perspective I would say. It would be at least very fun to read about XD Although I would wonder which of your characters are planting cannabis then :I
But you are very welcome! It is always a pleasure to write comments on your pictures as they all have different atmospheres and interesting stories ~ <;

Jee! Griippejä!
Värit tässä kuvassa on niin loistavat että huhhuh. Sysituulen ja Twilightin (mikä hänen käännetyksi nimekseen tuleekaan) varjostukset on miellyttävää katseltavaa ja pakko sanoa että maan lyhyt nurmi on yllättävän tyylikäs yksinkertaisuudessaan. :3 Puiden ja isompien puskien tyyli ei näytä ihan niin siistiltä mutta vika voi olla katsojassakin. :'D Enkä mene väittämään että tekisin ite parempia.
Ja on muuten mukava nähdä Sysituulta pitkästä aikaa. Twilight taitaa olla tässä ekaa kertaa näkyvilla mutta hänkin oikein nätyskä griippileidi.

Griippigriippigriippigriippigriippi... Maailmassa ei ole koskaan liikaa griippitaidetta.

Täytyy myöntää että nurmikko oli ihan täyttä improvisointia. Meinasin käyttää halpaa motion blur ratkaisua, mitä tuli käytettyä opinnäytetyön taustoissa, mutta aloinkin onneksi tekemään jotain muuta. Ei tuo itsestänikään niiiiin pahalta näytä. Tai ei ainakaan yhtä pahalta kuin noiden puiden ja pensaiden hektiset lehditykset. MIKSI, LEHTIPUUT, MIKSI olette helvetillisiä piirrettäviä????
Juu, Sysse ei ole kyllä saanut viimeaikoina tarpeeksi huomiota osakseen :< Ainakaan kun ottaa huomioon kuinka vanha hahmo sekin on. Twilight on kyllä ollut yhdessä 100 theme challenge-kuvassa (Sorrowkohan sen nimi oli, vanhan tilini puolella), mutta sekään ei ollut kuin 'rintakuva'. Ja aika vanha sekin väsäys taitaa jo olla...

Kiitokset kommentista! *Katsoo säälivästi Skudden näyttöä* Pitäisiköhän mun lahjoittaa sulle jonkinsorttinen sylkykuppi, niin ei tarvitsisi aina siihen koneelle kuolata...

Wow, I like the trees back there. :) Really nice style on those, they look so detailed. And very nice perspective/composition - I like the guy in the foreground. You did an amazing job with the detail on the feathers ....

The story's so sad. ;--; Poor Darkwind.

Thank you very much! I haven't quite managed to decide which style I should try to use for leafy-things... xD Leafy trees are a pain in the butt for me. Good to know though that they don't look that bad here.
