Fear pic done at last  
I have finally finished this. I think I will name it Bringer of light. I'm posting it here first and then I'll post this on DA once I finish the recolors of my older art.

I'm quite proud of this. Both Fear and the background look wonderful. I'm really getting used to his new look. BTW, new default icon for me. Yes I must find time to animate this. Maybe not just blinking but opening and closing his mouth? We'll see. Love my creepy boy.

Prospects for getting the house we want are looking better. Wish us luck with that. But at the same time it's kind of bad. If we get approved we'll have to hurry up and sell this one. We need to get it fixed up and get all my mother's junk out of it. I know it will be hard to sell with all the repairs it needs. When it comes to houses seems everything is always in a hurry. Well here's hoping that the place we want will also lower the price. We'll make an offer to bring it down 10 grand. I hope they go for that. They've lowered the price twice already and it's been up since at least Dec so seems we're the only ones interested in it. I hate haggling but these are big dollar amounts so we need it to come down as much as we can. So very exciting news and because of the extra work that needs to be done I may have to vanish from DA again. We'll see.

He looks like he's about ready to torture someone and enjoy it. I love the purple space background, but I wonder what the shiny black crystalline looking thing is.

I can post an Easter journal on Budgieness if you are away from DA. I was planning to, but you had come back. I have ideas to do features for different colors and mutations of budgies too.

Ha in a way I guess he does. Thanks. It's supposed to be ice and he's on snow but it didn't translate so well I guess. He's supposed to be in a cold environment. I was even going to add flying ice but I just could get the rocks to look like ice.

Ah go ahead. You can always post journals on the groups when you want. I really don't know how busy I'll get if we get approved for the loan.

Thank you. Oh yes he is. This is a scene from Triangulum Resistance and he gets into lots of battles. I'm glad you like his new colors. It's just so cool this way.
Thanks. I've been dealing with house issues for months now. If I can get these last two houses squared away things will be good.

I was wondering about the house. I'm glad the outlook for getting the new one is improving, but you will be crazy busy if you move. Maybe that will give a really long time lag before you get back onto dA, which might be a blessing in disguise.

Cheering you and Chris on for your new house and acreage!

Yes it seems very likely right now we will get that house. I'm very happy about that.

I love your loooooooooooooong comments.

I'm glad you see him correctly. He is a very happy creature. I think anyone with all his power would be. Sadness is something he really doesn't feel. I can't think of why he would since he really only cares about himself. Ah yes he's just toying with his electrical powers. He's making a small spark between his fingers. He's capable of so much more. Yeah originally you saw the glow from the lightning was going to be pink but then it blended too well with the background and you couldn't see it. So I went with blue and it worked much better to show his hand from the background. I enjoy coloring Fear's wings more than Ophidius's wings. I don't know why since the technique is the same but Ophidius seems harder. Maybe he has more feathers. Oh well he certainly has more colors. Black, white and green while Fear is just black. Yes it's my feather by feather technique that makes this so slow.

I'm glad you like the background. It's very important the elements not be too big or too small so deciding that was important. The sky was one of the easier things to make.

I'm glad you like the ice. It was hard and still not quite what I would have liked. A bit darker than I was hoping for. But I can try again. I need to get better at nice crystals and rocks.

I'm glad you like his shadow. I love placing shadows on characters like that and morphing them to fit the landscape. OH no. I would never intentionally draw faces in inanimate objects. I don't see it so I'm glad of that. I don't like cute faces in things that don't even have them. I'm glad you found the rock amusing though.

No prob. It will be up on DA by tomorrow.

Ohhh what a lovely picture of Fear, I like the nice space atmosphere this art delivers and the stars look amazingly bright and beautiful! Fear looks super confident here which is great, one of your best Fear artworks (but they are all beautiful especially with the colours). I think that your new default icon is nice, and I like the other updated Fear icons as well.

Good luck on getting that house, I hope you succeed with getting the house.

Thank you. I'm glad you like it. I agree one of my best. I will post this tomorrow. I just don't want to overwhelm you guys on DA with too many drawings that way. I find if I post more than two I don't get as many comments. So I've learned to hold off on it. I'm glad you like the space and the star background. Thanks glad you like his new icon. I'm enjoying them too.

Thanks. Gosh it's looking quite promising on this new house. I hope it works out as everything will be so much better and we can actually have guests sometimes. You MUST visit if we move here.

Thanks. I'm glad you enjoyed the stream. I'm glad you like this pic so much. I've been looking forward to getting it out finally.
It looks good for the house. I hope we can get it.
