- commission of Nero from ~RevengeOfShadows.
i'm so sorry i took so long to do this! i just couldn't seem to find the right energy to get it done until this weekend. hopefully you like it despite how long you had to wait <3 i feel it's much better than the first image a made you lol.
i feel i keep using the same colors over and over again u.u hopefully it doesn't take away from the image.

holly shit *O* its that beautiful <3
Lovely! The colours are brilliant! <3
Awe, you know I love all your artwork so much but this one is definitely a fav
I gotta ask you a question. x3
How do you take low-er quality stock, and turn it to this good? o.o
Do you repaint a lot? (:
- well, this one is on the moderate side of stock - anything that just seems desaturated with as little blur on paws/etc usually counts as a good piece of stock for me.
my way is usually i fiddle around with the curves of the image (much more reliable than brightness/contrast though that will work too) just to make it seem less bland. at this point i will also play with sharpness and light smudging if a stock is a bit too blurry. then i add my own highlights and shadows, being vague at first and adding more detail as i go along. i do repaint over things completely (like the paws and mouth here) but mostly i tend to rely on lighting to make the stock really work. i will say that i tend to try and work with what i already had then going over it completely. my obsession with a complete outline also helps stock that is a bit fuzzy.
Question, how much are your commissions? and can they be paid in points?
