Even Legendaries need naps sometimes.

This is a doodle that I finally decided to color and finish up! Happy with the end result! The people were an annoyance, but they really add to the feel of the page. :D

I'm here on behalf of #SelfTaughtArtist because your piece was in the group's critique requested folder.

I read your description and I'm so happy that you decided to color it and finish it up. 'Cause I love the end result too! This artwork is quite original, I totally agree that even legendaries need naps sometimes! I like your style of shading! The shadows are placed correctly thinking of that the light source is from the left, right? The environment is nice. The way you painted the sand looks very realistic. So does the water. Without those people around Lugia, the picture would probably look more lifeless and lack depth. But this makes me get this summer feeling of hot air and warm winds. What an impact : )

This artwork is kinda flawless, but I must find something to pick on, haha :> I think the Lugia looks more "gummy" compared to the rest of the picture. In other words, it seems like Lugia is painted in a different style than the rest of the image. It's absolutely nothing to worry so much about, I just had to find something to pick on, making it a critique at all, haha.

This picture smells effort. Great job! Please continue with digital art painting, you'll have a great future!

Thank you! Yeah I struggled with a lot of bits about this. The lugia I think I repainted once or twice and was experimenting with some different things, eventually just had to call it done and move on.

But positive commentary like this is awesome for motivation. Thank you kindly. :3

But to be fair, Lugia is a goddamn legendary. Most people arne't the protagonist of a video game and thus able to catch world-bending creaturs at age 12.

...My point still stands
