- homeward - by Kanoe-v2 - homeward - by Kanoe-v2
This by far is the hardest I've worked on a single piece. I think we were given 3 weeks give or take to do this assignment and I spent every waking min working on it xD Most of the time spent on it was learning or trying to figure things out..

Though I must admit it was a great test of patience in the end.

*edit* Hot damn, a DD! Thanks everyone!

Daily Deviation

Given 2010-02-22
- homeward - by ~Kanoe-v2 - The slight surreal elements along with the bright colours, immense details and fantasy that this piece creates makes it hard not to be drawn into it's fantastic little world ( Suggested by Samuel-Hardidge and Featured by archanN )

As Kenunu once said: Woah.

I really like this, especially the building-to-building bridges. I lived near Roselyn Virginia at one time and I would jog down in the Spectrum area. You can run around the entire neighborhood and never step on ground level.

I love all the little details. Everywhere I look there is something to see, and when I look again I see something I missed. Your work is really good.

The only thing can think of is you 95% done with this piece and saying to yourself "Y'know, I think it needs another building..."

Haha, great work mon ami.

I'm so glad you said it took you a long time. It makes me insanely depressed to see amazing images in DA and the artist says it took them a couple hours. Then compare what I can do in a couple hours and I cry. LOL!

This is really lovely... the detail is fantastic!

Kanoe-v2 Featured By Owner Feb 24, 2010
honestly, not that long if you can believe that. I used the line art mostly as a guideline (so it was quite rough) and painted on top of it. As the piece went on I kept adding more and more to it.
