Who, me? by CoilHeart Who, me? by CoilHeart
*Update: forgot to blur some things in the background. My bad. Carry on.
Yes, you, Birchfall.
Muahahaha, 'tis finished. Finally. After much toil and struggle and bitchy trees and rocks, I pulled through!
So, obviously, here we have Birchfall in a birch tree forest (see what I did there?) I was originally going to make him an apprentice, but I think his structure is too defined for it to be an apprentice. He would have to be a pretty old apprentice, so I just made things easier for everyone and made him a warrior :) I used a reference for anatomy practice and his design, and I kind of like it, I guess. He's not mentioned enough in the books so I like to give the kitty some love! The snow on the rocks looks hella crappy, but I'm too lazy to fix it now. So here is my finished result.

Time Taken: 3 days
Program: Photoshop CS6

Nice! Hehe...Birchfall in a birch forest...clever X3 I love this guy, he's one of my favorite characters! I especially liked him as an apprentice. He was so cute! Amazing job on this picture. The background looks realistic, and the shading is perfect! Looks like you spent a lot of time on it. I really like the way you did his stripes and his eyes, too. Awesome work :D Can I use this for a video?

Thank you! I quite like him as well...he doesn't get much spotlight, though :(

Sure, as long as you credit me and/or send me the link, I'd love to see your video! :)

Unfortunately D: It feels like he got a lot more when he was younger. Why are the minor characters the really awesome ones who never get any focus?!?

Thanks, I will! I'll post a link on my journal as soon as I'm done.

I know! And that's part of why I ship LionxIce so hard. A minor character needs some spotlight!

Looks great, you often don't see drawings of him either. I may adopt the colours, I always thought of him a little darker, but the sandy browns and beige definitely fits the name. :) The background looks fine too, the shadows from the rocks and trees looks good.

Thank you for your comment!
I try to refrain from drawing over-used characters...there's already so much.
