Explorers by Nollaig Explorers by Nollaig
I guess this is a sort of homage to the fireflies series I did years ago - except that now I'm much better at drawing!! I'm actually really pleased with this, as it's almost 100% unreferenced, and I just looked at clipart of their faces to get a feel for what I was doing, I didn't use any direct references.

Pleased as I am, I'm sure I'll find something I want to change by tomorrow! XD

Edit: Immediately found something  - unfortunately the png colours are showing up insanely saturated, so I'm having to use the lower quality jpeg.

First time in a long long time I've done a proper, original, full colour scene with canon characters, so I hope you guys like it!

What I especially like about this one is that the fireflies now illuminate their surroundings. The background, the shading, the cubs, perfectly meld together. Wow. Just wow.

Yeah it was by chance I discovered that using the dodge tool gave a sort of illumination quality, so I went with it! And thank you :3

TLK fanart from Noll!!! :squee: You just made my hectic week a whole lot better. Thank you! :glomp: This whole pic... it just makes me happy. :love: Nala and Simba are awesome in your style, and that BG/lighting!!! Whooooa! :omg: There so much detail there (or at least gives the illusion of detail - a rare talent indeed ;)). The sky is a beautiful backdrop, and I think those fireflies really bring it all together. It also brings me back (like you mentioned) to your original firefly TLK fanart.

 

Overall, wonderful work, Noll! :hug: Keep it up! :dance:
