DaringDo by Huussii DaringDo by Huussii
Been running pretty low on passion and haven't get anything done at all after that timberwolf scene painting.. So I decided to dig up something I really do like to draw and paint another semi-quick painting about some episode scene. Picked this one as I wanted to dabble with some.. Well, forest-like scenery again and also had some interest to try some architectural things. Injected a little bit of my own style once again with the temple.

Yet I ended up to love working with this one so much I decided to really give it much more attention.

Decided to really go and push into it some stronger colors as I normally like to work with pretty desaturated ones and a mighty jungle just needed that kinda lush oomph into it. It became a bit overly green though.

...I definately need more jungle reference material...

And yeah, I couldn't really come up with a fitting name for the pic.

As always, it amazes me that you are able to whip out works of such quality in such a short amount of time. If you find yourself needing inspirations for drawings, both pony and non-pony, do not hesitate to contact me, as I have far to many concepts and scenes to ever hope to draw on my own. Now, onto your work...
The color scheme is an interesting choice for a south american jungle, but I believe it is one that captures the eccence of the scene. However, a small amount more of a brown or brown gree would add some contrast to the work. The eye glare from the temple's "face" is a welcome detail, but it seems to reach just a tad far out. The bandages on Dariong's wing are excelent, as is the rest of her, however the tail seems to be a bit too inward. Thos may have been intentional on your part, but the countour of the tail, when me with that of her hind leg, seems a bit off, though I cannot say why. Finally, you may wish to change the level of perspective based blur, as the are is far more humid, and images of jungle temples invariable include some sort of visual representation of the opressive, moist heat.
Your work is, as ever, stunning, and any and all criticisms are merely little nitpicks on my part due to being bored and staring at it for too long. I apologise for any and all misspellings, and hope to see more from you in the future.
What do you think?

The Temple of the Jackal awaited her, and Daring was filled with fear and apprehension. But she couldn't stop here; she had come too far.

can I use this drawing in an role play me and my friend are doing?
Huussii Featured By Owner Jul 7, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Depends on which way you're going to use it. If you're just basically posting it somewhere under public viewing, you could preferably write down credits.
saki-chan3 Featured By Owner Jul 7, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
like i said, role play. But I will defenetly give you credit and a link to the art on here.
Huussii Featured By Owner Jul 7, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Well, "role playing" just doesn't quite say anything to me without additional context. I'm not familiar with that kind of stuff and I have no idea how are you going to utilize my picture in it.. :D
saki-chan3 Featured By Owner Jul 7, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
I was going to say it was an painting my oc drew, if you let me, and in parentheses say it was your artwork not mine and that it was your idea and so on.

"There it is" she said to herself, gazing upon the magnificent piece of ancient arcitecture before her. "The pyramid of Catzalquatl. That wasn't so hard" she scoffed, leaping over upturned roots and slick moss.
