Solace by tanaw Solace by tanaw
// OH MY GOSH. A DD?!??! I just can't believe it! ;u; Thank you so much for making my day! And super thank you to all of your kind comments! I will try to answer all of you! <33333333333


I just love the feeling when somebody stays beside you when they know you're sad. It's so comforting. ;uuuu;
Ahhh, I gotta go work on more important stuff. ;u;

Daily Deviation

Given 2014-02-18
The suggester says: "I love the peaceful atmosphere and the intention of TeaTori behind the creation of Solace, making this scene comforting and embracing." (Also suggested by Sangrde) ( Suggested by Kirimimi and Featured by Gwendolyn12 )
:iconmanganime01:
overall this is a really nice drawing. i love the idea of somebody staying beside you when you're sad and the fact that it's not a person, but a winged horse makes the drawing a little more unique to me.
i love the atmosphere of the drawing with them in the middle of a forest but i would personally have made that horse a unicorn(i don't know why)
the lighting effect on the wings and on the plants are the two things that made me like this drawing the most. it makes you want to jump in the scene and take advantage of this soothing environment. i like how peaceful it looks and makes you want to just sit down and look at this just to come down. the only thing is that a lot of people would of liked more details on the plants but i think it fits with the art style so i don't care much about since it looks good and makes it looks like a fairy tale drawing :)
yes i love this drawing and it really makes me want to know the story behind these characters. good job!
hope you found this review fair since it's my first one!

First of all, I gotta say I was blown away by this.

You chose such a beautiful color scheme which created a mysterious but kind atmosphere.. I felt like I got dragged into this forest immediately.. *-*

I also like the way you used your brushes in this piece, you really outdid yourself here.. The way you used different brushes for the bushes in the foreground than you used for the other components of the painting created a strong feeling of depth and also increased the impact!

Another thing I liked about this piece was how the composition combined with the brightness leads the eye from the left wing of the pegasus-creature towards the boy.. oh man.. I really like the details.. :iconrlytearplz:

only a few things to criticize..
I'd revise the anatomy of the human a bit.. something about his posture seems.. a bit wobbly to me..
.. and -this may be just me-.. but isn't the forest a bit 'too' crooked there in the background..? :'D I know, nature isn't perfectly upright.. but to me it always seems like the trees are gonna fall over to the left side at any moment..
.. also the theme of the painting wasn't that clear to me.. ^^'

.. well apart from that..
this is some piece of art you can be proud of. :icongreatjobplz:


this was my first critique too.. so :'D I hope I didn't say anything stupid..

This is seriously beautiful. I want to get a giant poster of it and hang it on my wall because wow this is really amazing. I can't draw at all and seeing these kinds of things makes me realise just how much time, effort and patience people put into art. Sadly I don't have any of those things, which is probably why I can't draw! XD

No but this really is beautiful and you are amazing

D'awwww, bby I'm sure you can draw. I believe that everyone has the chance to draw what they want. Everyone started out as total newbs at drawing but if you really love what you do, then slowly but surely, you'll be able to improve your skills and become the artist you want to be. Believe in yourself! c: I'm sure you're a talented person. <3

//I have the temptation to give a critique, but I have no suggestions on this, especially when the artist him/herself (better safe than sorry, right? X'D) is much better than I am with different digital works.
I love this drawing, with the light coming from two directions- One from the back of the forest of towering canopy trees, the way you draw everything here can make any artist envious, and with that light shining upon the beautiful winged horse, simple words coming from only a mortal human being cannot describe how amazing this is~ <3
I truly love how soft and smooth the water looks, just as if it were real, and I love the dreamy effect this is giving- As if this scene was just a picture taken from one of the many dreams that children and children-at-heart have.
The shading and lighting of this all is just so perfect, I love this~ ;w;

Of course it's your work that I'm describing, there is no other piece that I've seen on dA (So far, at least X'D) that is as beautiful as this one, since I just love every aspect and feature of this, the Daily Deviation was well deserved~
And you are very welcome~ <3
