The lost world by nelena The lost world by nelena
Finished picture for the MMC convention conbook. The con theme was "Lost worlds". This picture was the centerfold and was commissioned by Kayjay. I really really had a lot of fun working on this even though it was the most exhausting picture I've ever made. X3

I loved working on the different stone parts and I was so happy I managed to insert _all_ characters. X3

So this young skunk woman soon will learn that it's not a good idea to run around in ruins with statues which look suspiciously like your fellow adventurers. X3

Background was completely painted with gouache, character and statues are done with colored pencils. :3

Edit: OMG!!!! My 2nd DD!!!! Thank you so much :iconkovowolf: :heart:

Well done, This is such a wonderful piece of work and one of the best ones I have seen till now
I love how you blend in the colors so naturally with really amazing shades without making any single mistake
Those animal creatures you put there look incredibly cute and cool with the lovely nature you drew
The way you mixed the colors was very nice and I wonder???
I think... is this a water colored picture???It looks like that
Over all you are an awesome artist who has got an amazing talent
and Good Luck in your future works!!!!
What do you think?

This is beautiful! There isn't a detail missing that i can see at least. the textures all through the piece are perfect. From the grainy textures in the rocks to the graceful strokes in the skunk's fur. What i really love is how the background looks like it's leading to more in what seems like and endless world. The stone structure looks like greek ruins almost and that i love. i also love how the trees have roots drooping down over more ruins as we;; as the statures. those really caught my eye. from the ones in the background to the one up front. this is amazing! good work!

+ The "hybrid"
+ The "basilisk"
+ the ruins (teksture)

- the "stone" trees (a basilisk only have the ability to turn "living" beings into stone (animals)

Else 4.5/5

Thank you for your kind words :3 I used references of Ta Prohm for the trees. They're not stone but they actually do look a lot like it ;) So these trees are not supposed to be turned to stone :3
