Commission 10- Fixing to Fly by Dreamkeepers Commission 10- Fixing to Fly by Dreamkeepers
Commission 10.

I had a blast with the detail and range of depth in this one. Combine it with a trio of adorable characters, and I think it's easy to see I had a good time up there.


...The world needs more blimps.

Excuse me, but I couldn't help notice your wonderful art and was very much wondering if you would like to join a new Group I have started. It is called The-Stray-House, a roleplaying group sully for stray dogs of any kind to join. I have but onto two members besides myself at this time, and would very much love to have you join our ranks. If you are interested in joining, please look into this link. The home page has the rules linked, and how you can join. Granted this group is very new, so the rules and how to join will have things added onto slowly as we build up the ranks and grow in numbers. Thank you for reading if you have. the-stray-house.deviantart.com…

Thank you for the invitation!  It sounds like a fun group- but for the present I must decline.  My time is currently consumed with graphic novel work, and the task of fulfilling our Kickstarter rewards in the next month.  But thank you anyways for being considerate enough to invite me, please accept my best wishes for you and your group.  :)

It was actually one drawing- but many photoshop layers, and I colored the lines to make some look further away.

I love this!! You can definitely tell how much care you put into this with the detail -- it's so rich and the characters are so full of life! I love their expressions and how you differentiated each of them from one another. The color scheme is very nice, too, and fits with the overall theme of the piece well. :) If there's anything that I would say, though, that could be improved, it would be the characters in the background seem to be a bit too much "in focus," if that makes any sense? I think that if they were a bit more faded -- similar to how you did the blimps -- it might meld a little better.

Fantastic job!! :)

Thank you for the encouragement, and for the constructive feedback!  I think your observation is spot on.  I'll be able to keep a little bit of a better eye on that sort of thing down the road, thank you for bringing it to my attention.  :boogie:

Have you ever read Airborn by Kenneth Oppel. It's about a reality where there are no planes, and ALL forms of arial travel is by blimps. Nice job by the way.

I'm not familiar with the book, but it sounds thoroughly fascinating.  Thank you for mentioning it to me.  :)

You're welcome. It's actually the first book of a series. If your library has the books in alphabetical order just look for "Oppel," and if it classifies shelves by age group (public libraries often do), I think it would be in the Young Adult section.
