Among the Thistles by kiss-the-thunder Among the Thistles by kiss-the-thunder
Thank you for everyone who gave me feedback on the sketch of this picture! I was able to choose some bits and pieces I liked that people suggested to really improve the piece!

I was originally going to do what most people suggested, which was to stretch her arm out and have it bound in vines and have her grasping at some. Then my awesome friend :iconjaylesch: gave me a very helpful redline that fed off of what I originally had wanted to do! Although I wish her hand had turned out a bit more tense (adding some distance between the fingers woulda helped but hindsight is 20.20 they say) I'd say I'm overall pretty pleased with how this turned out :) I'll be coloring it in the future when I have the motivation!

Thunder out, love you <3

This really blew me away :)
The variations of thick and thin lines in your linearts have always impressed and amazing me!! :heart:
I honestly have ever seen so much life in pictures without colour!! <3
I can imagine her struggling there even though I'm guessing struggling would only cause more pain, but she's got to try and get free :heart:
I've always loved her beautiful fluffy tail <3 It looks so soft~ Softer than the finest silks and fluffiest little chicks :'D :heart:
Another lovely piece!! Please never stop your wonderfully inspiring art :heart:<3

I can't thank you enough for your review! You see, Lineart and doing black and white pieces is my real passion in art. I'm trying to improve my other skills so I can be a more complete and well rounded artist but I adore creating lineart! That you said that you've never seen such life in a picture without color as made a weight lift off my shoulders! (I really do doubt my artistic abilities, and I want to do so much more and be so much better than this, so when someone appreciates what I do it really is gratifying )

Thanks for taking the moment to comment, it really brightened my day :hug:

You're so very welcome!!~
I'm glad I helped you lift that weight off your shoulders!!
You really shouldn't doubt yourself so much :) Your artwork is really something special and so inspiring :) You are incredibly talented~
But I understand just how you feel, as I doubt my abilities all the time. It really is nice to hear that someone likes your art :) It always makes me feel motivated~
You're welcome again~ :hug:
