Shady Siesta by KaiserTiger Shady Siesta by KaiserTiger
My half of a trade with *H-Skarriad! She asked for me to draw her caracal fursona Skkariad with her bff Redshadow, who's a serval. I decided the two of them should in enjoy a nice afternoon nap under the shade of a tree. <3

D: Ffft, I drew all the leaves by hand again but I think I've finally found a style of background that works with the my character style.

xD She actually completed her half back in August and I'm just now getting around to finishing up mine. Thanks so much for being soooo patient btw. Hopefully it was worth the wait! <33

Her awesome half here:

All of my grass is usually hand drawn with each blade being an individual brush stroke. It takes a long time to do (which is why I seem to only do small patches of grass and never whole pictures! xDD) but I really love the natural effect it gives. c: There's also another type of grass style I use for quickie pictures like my comics. [link] (used it sorta here too [link]) It's definitely not as natural looking but it's a lot quicker and I can cover bigger areas.

I guess it all depends on what you're going for and how realistic you want your grass to look though! :D If you're wanting something with more detail, go for individual brush strokes, but something more cartoony would be better off with a simple grass style. Ffft, I hope that helped a bit. :3

Quick question. Do you accept art trades for free or not? I only have 5 points left. XD

Thanks!

You mean like just a standard "picture for picture" art trade? xD Those are free when I have the time. I'm not taking in trades atm though until I finish what I already owe and school lets up a bit.

I especially love the shading job on this. The speckles of light on the caracal make all the difference. :D And it's so pretty, too! LOL The serval's position reminds me of Sarabi's from the "Bathtime" scene. :D

Aws, thank you! :heart: The leaves seemed like they took forever, but I think I like the look of drawing each one out better. xD Poses can be kinda tough but once you've practiced enough, they start to come naturally to you.
