Finished /o/ an illustration I had in mind since a while. I could have probably worked more on it but... I was more messing everything than making it look better x.x

I hope you still like it ! Everything is done by photoshop, for those wondering. I took printscreen of the process. I don't think I will do an tutorial(I always fail at it), but a step by step is already something x^X !

Want to reblog ? Please do it from my account ! Thank you ! [link]

Lets start off with the colors. Very good attention to using complementing colors to bring the picture into focus the shading although subtle is highly effective and executed really well here. I love the choice of using muted colors here its just enough to blend in with the scenery yet it doesn't over power the piece making it dull it also adds atmosphere and mood to the piece.
I have really grown to like your particular art style but try experimenting with more colors I notice similar color pallets being used time and time again in many of your pieces and be mindful to venture into more concepts and never stop experimenting with your style. Keep it up man!
What do you think?

J'adore la lyre en tant que cornes, c'est vraiment une idée très poétique !
Par contre je trouve que le cadrage serait meilleur remonté, car la zone d'ombre en bas assombri beaucoup le dessin alors que le ciel en haut l'illumine. A moins que tu voulais montrer une dualité dans ton image. Le truc c'est que comme c'est sombre en bas et que dans la continuité les personnages (surtout le héron) sont dans l'ombre, ils ressortent moins.
J'aime beaucoup les nuages en arrière plans sinon ^^

This looks absolutely gorgeous. The composition is lovely, and the color palette and coloring itself is lovely. I specially like the effects in the water, and the subtlety of the fish there. And the characters themselves look mysterious and gorgeous. Lovely work!
