Hiwa 'n' Coby kinasaur

Scraps©2010-2015 kinasaur

I'm getting there! Lately I've been screwing around with different painting techniques. Normally I love to paint with oils but I'm also normally very absent minded so I've left my liquin and paints at my parents place.
I had a day off from work yesterday and started doodling. This is what came out of it. Initially there was more to the picture, but composition-wise blew so I cropped cropped cropped!

Featured is Hiwa and her companion "!". "!" is a strange critter, inside his stomach be another dimension. <3

Media: OpenCanvas1.1 & PaintTool Sai.
Hiwa and "!" K.Simpson 2010

Hi Kina (Not sure to call you by your real name). This is Aaron from work. Is this an original or a "cover"? Love the cold, earthy colours by the way. Keep up the good work!

Y'have outdone yourself once again with another beautiful piece of work.

What can I say? The contrast in stunning, as well as the mesh of colours. You sure have a keen eye with your selection of palette colours and mixes!

The perspective looks a bit classical styled, but the subjects are very cute though.

Oh! I like the unusual color scheme, it defenitly adds something more to this lovely piece.
Her hair are amazingly (okay I'm not sure this a word) painted.
Keep it up! 8D

the colour scheme was a happy little accident actually, i started with a texture early in the piece and it just seemed to work.
thanks chaotickittie!

Truly stunning Gaki, good to see new stuff from you. I was just browsing around and happened to stumble on to your old gallery and was pointed here. I know it's been a while but i used to go by nani-fox so maybe you'll remember me? I had drawn this for you as part of an art trade: [link]

:) Anyway I'll stop rambling, hope to see lots of new pretty things from you! Your arts always been so refreshing! Keep it up!

hey!
i remember you, i believe i still owe you from that trade too. i had actually lost your half of the trade so i'm really glad that it's still in your possession. **saves** :D
shoot me a reference of that guy you wanted me to draw. :)
all the best and thank you for dropping by. hope you've been well!

Oh! I'm glad i was able to help! It was one of my favorite pieces since your skittles was so much fun to draw. If i had the time (stupid classes) I'd probably draw more art of your awesome characters.

Um as far as something for you to draw, I have a couple characters you might enjoy playing with, so I'll let you decide. :)

Eep! I can't wait to find out, so excited!

I'm studying wildlife ecology and conservation. Which means I'll get to study and work with lots of cool animals for my job. I'm currently trying to find a job since I graduate in May. :)
