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
