It's a Beautiful World... (Gift) by Ascynd It's a Beautiful World... (Gift) by Ascynd
On her first meeting with Halberd, Kismet left him alone after a barrage of unsolicited questions as to why he was so shy proved fruitless... but when she encountered him again and found him planting trees in the rainforest, she couldn't resist dropping in to offer him some chocolate chip cookies made with cocoa from the forest itself. The jungle is her home, after all. However when she literally "dropped in" from the canopy above, she startled the daylights out of poor Halberd... will he recover his wits and accept the gifts, or has she scared him off for good? 

This image was a huge pile of challenges... odd angles, difficult poses, background painting... turns out the trickiest part was shading the upside-down Kismet. It could have come out better imo, but it was plenty much needed practice.

+7 love for Kismet (full body color/shaded=3, +3 for bg, +1 story), +7 gift magic (same count)

Halberd (c) :iconfrillythingy: ... hope you enjoy the gift!

Haha thanks! XD Was my first time painting a background this elaborate, too...although it's still pretty simple. Came out better than I expected tho.

OH MY GOODNESS I CAN'T EVEN HANDLE HOW CUTE THIS IS. 
The poor baby would've been so startled!! But how could he refuse cookies? Especially since his other friend is all about sweets, so it would make him feel comfortable. 
I just love it! I can't believe you tackled such complex angles! Kismet's underbelly and muscle shape turned out fantastic!

Thanks! Since Kismet is an arboreal evoloon I thought I should show how she can hang from her feet... later she will be able to hang by her tail. But I could only imagine it would be a jump scare for Halberd if suddenly from above... *rustle rustle*... "Ohai!!" =D

And one of the major points of the group seems to be to me to challenge myself, even if I'm not sure it will turn out good. I'm very glad you like it!

Also I'll probably have to get both him and Sweetie in one sometime...

I totally agree that this group encourages artists to step out of their comfort zones. I don't know how long its been since I picked up a paintbrush, but I'm determined to get those aquatic upgrades by painting Halberd swimming!
Funny that you mention that, though, cuz I'm already working on a picture of the three of them together. ^^; I will probably have it posted later today!
