Ancient  Woods by ZaraAlfonso Ancient  Woods by ZaraAlfonso

More concept artwork for MemoirduLune

Spanning over most of Espersia, the trees in the Ancient Woods are said to be as old as time itself. They are large to such a degree that the forest paths will often lead through the tree branches themselves, winding and curling into a maze in the sky.

You might remember these little fae sisters from my child and dragon graphite series. They don't have names yet, help me think of some?

Ee, I just love huge, mossy forests. The softness of the background is soothing, and I like the simplicity of the girls' outfits, they're cute and effectively designed. ^.^ The way you highlighted the leaves in their hair/wings is especially adorable.. :love:

Thanks! :hug:

Haha yes, I originaly designed them without colours and just had the colours they were in my mind. But when I did this piece and actually began colouring them, I kept thinking that they looked a lot like whimsicott. I blame the poofy hair and earth tone colour palette!

Thank you, I'm still really new to digital scenes so lighting and colour blending is something I'm trying really hard to work on now. It's not quite correct to say that the lighting effects do not even subtly show on the characters, but I agree that it's nowhere near as strong as it should be.

Thank you so much :hug: I've discovered that I love drawing scenes with backgrounds and lots of things going on far more than individual characters, I just wish I'd tried it sooner. ;u;

The symbol is a rune for the :devmemoiddulune: rp group me and wispy are making, it means something along the lines of life but we haven't decided the exact meaning. I created that particular symbol when I was twelve and randomly found it with some old papers when we were in the beginning stages of making the group so it kinda spawned the whole idea of runes.

As for names I've already named the older one Paprika, but the younger one is still nameless. I'm not looking for anything in particular, Mirelle is kinda cute.

^u^!!! I'm glad that you have discovered the love of drawing backgrounds and scenes! ^^- I agree with you, I'm currently working with backgroundddd cause nowadays I don't like having such a blank space.

Oh okay! ^u^!! that didn't work? ; ^ ; the dev thing?? Oh okay, wowww. Oh okay, yeyyyy!! sounds like a beautiful and brilllant idea.

Yey okay! Hmmmm, maybe Pepper? Paprika and Pepper?? ^^
