Better Days by danielleclaire Better Days by danielleclaire
(Title is random... just the Goo Goo Dolls song I'm listening to at the moment, and I didn't just want to name it 'Aeryn'. I'm so lame.)

Aeryn for ~strawpony. Subject to change as it hasn't been approved yet, but I've been working my ass off all night on it and I wanted to post it.

Be gentle, my backgrounds are lame, yeah, yeah... I know... but I did what I could.

I like how it turned out... the feel of it, at least. It's supposed to portray her softer side as she is a rather (from what Strop has told me) jaded character. I figured that first thing in the morning, everybody looks vulnerable.

:faint:

Better Days by =Halothane. This is a beautiful but haunting piece that I've loved since I first saw it. =Halothane manages to depict wonderfully realistic anthro characters that still maintain some fantasy charm. I particularly admire the lighting in this piece, it's dramatic but fits the mood perfectly. ( Featured by Pixel-Spotlight )

I really am happy to see how well you are handling the people who are being just plain rude about you recieving a DD for this gorgeous picture. These people are two things: bitter and jealous. So to see how grateful you are for the nice comments and how calmly you deal with the rude comments makes me very happy.. especially considering how I've seen some other people react when others dont like their DD. This anthro is definitely one of my favorites that I've seen from you, and the shine of her eyes really capture raw emotion. I think thats what the Admin saw too. I also really like the tears still in the air from how she fell onto her bed.. like the sadness is so powerful its in the air. :hug: Sooo deserved and so beautiful! Great job!

Thank you very kindly for such a lovely comment. :hug: I understand people get frustrated, maybe because they feel like their work isn't recognized enough, so they seek to upset people who receive more attention. It doesn't really accomplish anything to fight with them either... they think what they think and you can't change them. I really do greatly appreciate the people who take the time to leave encouraging comments because it moves me to keep submitting art. :aww:

Thank you so much again! I loved painting this so I'm glad there are people who can see and feel that when they look at it.

Do you think so? :aww: She's a friend's character, I don't have any anthro horse/unicorn characters of my own, so I often use his as guinea pigs to practice. :P

She's a UNICORN?? I though she was a cat because of how the tail looked... :oops:

:D Yeah, she's a unicorn. The tuft of her tail isn't in the picture, I suppose that would make it confusing.

Congratulations on the DD, it's about time! You've deserved it. Although this isn't exactly my sort of thing, I know enough to say that it's beautiful. I really like the colors and the lighting, it really gives a serene feeling. (:

Hey, it's a great piece of art. But you're right, not something I am "in the loop" with. (: :huggle:
