A Scone Moment by chichapie A Scone Moment by chichapie
Basil Stag Hare, Adult Matthias and Mattimeo just chilling and... well, eating scones.

I haven't got a time lapse video of this because I needed to preserve some free space on my HD, since Fraps uses up so much space in capturing videos.

This is more or less a relaxation piece. Taking time to review what I've learned so far in my experiences in painting in the past year. One thing worth mentioning in that review is that I still suck at painting trees =(

I recently just finished reading "Redwall" and *laughs* what a character Basil is!

I'm surprised Basil isn't holding a dozen scones in his paws.

Great work as all your other work, I just find it awesome and fascinating that you can draw all these Redwall art pieces with so much attention to detail and lighting.  It's just amazing.  I thought that you did that tree in a blurry way to provide a distant background, I like it, it may not be your strongest painting skill but it's good.  You are a great artist, may you keep painting with so much passion and dedication. :)

Seeing this makes me wish all the more this will be adapted into film. I mean, the technology for creating the world and characters required for a Redwall movie is here. We just need someone with initiative (and money hahaha)
This is brilliant brilliant work :)

Nice little moment - I like all the details on the clothing, and your brush work is nice!
MrGreenface Featured By Owner Oct 12, 2012  Professional Digital Artist
The color palette & lighting you used in this piece is lovely -- nicely done! :)
hefeigal Featured By Owner Oct 12, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
Nice work! The colors are balanced nicely, and the proportions are very good.
Your trees aren't nearly as bad as you make them sound! :hug:
All I'd suggest is to use a light green instead of a light blue to shade the right side. The branches extend out beautifully, and the textures are great!
Well done, and keep up the good work! :D

Frogalogthe1ast Featured By Owner Mar 8, 2012
Wow, the relaxed character, not to mention the hint of impressionism, and the DESIGN, is totally amazing!!! And I love the way you made the clothes. Truly excellent work!!
KIRKparrish Featured By Owner Mar 3, 2012  Professional Digital Artist
man, u understand color so well. any tips?
chichapie Featured By Owner Mar 5, 2012  Professional Digital Artist
Tips on what part of coloring in particular?
KIRKparrish Featured By Owner Mar 5, 2012  Professional Digital Artist
I guess I'm interested in your shading method, along with the subtle changes in your hues. Are you placing the highlights on a "soft light" layer? Thanks dude and insight would be great!
chichapie Featured By Owner Mar 6, 2012  Professional Digital Artist
All lights and shadows are in one single layer. I consider layer effects as final touch ups. Subtle change of hues result from blending.
KIRKparrish Featured By Owner Mar 7, 2012  Professional Digital Artist
really, only one layer?
chichapie Featured By Owner Mar 7, 2012  Professional Digital Artist
Yep. It's just a matter of comfortability and complexity really.
CheloceanJewel Featured By Owner Feb 27, 2012
Basil is my favorite! Amazing, as always. Love the detail and colors!

Fantastic! It's a pity that no new books are coming out because I think you could have been an illustrator.

Crealextion Featured By Owner Jan 21, 2012  Professional Digital Artist
I like the overall look of this one, you have a nice style of drawing.Good job!:)
carcadann Featured By Owner Jan 21, 2012  Professional Digital Artist
You don't SUCK at painting trees. :) It's quite a good tree! The only thing that might help this one along a little is if you shaped the outside of it a little more and made it look less photoshop-brushy. The stipple brush you were using for the inside would probably help. :heart: Awesome picture over all!
KatWarhound Featured By Owner Jan 20, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Ah I miss these so much! Too bad Brian Jaques isn't writing anymore.
Beautiful colors and amazing detail! You should have illustrated the covers of his books. It looks better than most of the ones currently in use.

Any Redwall Reference is good by me.
