If only it could have been... 

Gift drawing for my very good friend :icon0laffson: of his adorable mother and daughter characters, Zareen and Shadi. They are together again, just as they both hoped and dreamed could be true...

Well I am back to making full drawings it seems! I had a lot of fun with this one even if it was a huge challenge haha. Took a good amount of time and patience, but I think all of the hard work was worth it, I really love it ^^ I'll be making more big ones in the near future for sure! :D 

EDIT: After getting some great advice in the comments from hunterbeinghunted.deviantart.com I decided to go back in and fix some small issues that were bothering me XD I normally don't ever touch a drawing again after I post it, but this one took forever and I won't let a few minor details bother me haha. Original version can be found here --> My Child 100dpi

Hope everyone enjoys it! Let me know what you think! Comments, critiques, and suggestions on how to improve always welcome! :D

The thumbnail does not do this piece ANY justice...

NICE!
Don't think I'll view full version, though, this is plenty big and doesn't even fit on my screen. XD

It also makes me wonder if they had both died.

Excellent drawing of these two characters.

I knew that much about adult Shadi, but I'm wondering about this picture, here.
They're both together and both happy-looking.  It makes me wonder if they're both dead, in this picture, and enjoying their paradise.

So Shadi's mother has a name! :la: Zareen, that's a lovely one. (Honestly, I've seen the art of Shadi's mother before, but I never knew her name. ^^; ) That's a beautiful picture, I love how soft and feminine Zareen's features look, especially compared to the lean youthfulness of Shadi. :love: I really hope that this is a happy ending that both characters deserve...

Indeed, she does at last! :D And I really like it too haha (and I don't believe she even had one till recently XD ) 
And I'm happy you like it! ^^ I indeed tried to make an age contrast between the two, but it was difficult XD
I hope they do as well, we shall have to wait and see ^^

Is this a more modern setting, a different area with different clothing or both?
Reply
:icontitusw:
TitusW Featured By Owner Feb 21, 2017  Student Digital Artist
It's 0laffson's setting, which is far later than mine for sure :P Mine is kinda based on civilizations far in the past, like ancient Rome Greece Persia and Egypt thousands of years ago, while his is more based in the Renaissance era in Europe a few hundred years ago ^^

Don't tell him, but I prefer your setting, it's a little more interesting, and the struggle and conflict just to survive adds tension and creativity to your story. Both of you were able to give your characters personalities and made them more believable. I admire that.

Oh yes! Shadi being happy! I have been waiting to see more pictures like this of her! :aww:


This picture has a really nice feel of depth and soooo much detail, not to mention perfectly balanced composition, I love it so much! :heart: :la:
I really like how many different textures there are and how realistic the environment seems, the environment is not too 'tidy' and totally overgrown with long grass and importantly, different plants as well, very natural looking. 

If you wanted any critique I think there could be even greater 'contrast' difference between the middle ground and the hillside with a village. For example more light hitting the grass at the edge of the middle ground to make it stand out more from the hillside  in the background, similar to the light hitting the characters. However I think the bg does stand out, even if it could be emphasized more, and I really like that you made it quite detailed despite of being in the bg, that extra detail makes it stand out even better from the furthest away landscape and adds to that awesome feel of depth (seriously, it is amazing! I feel like I could sink in the picture!) On top of that, the extra detail in that hillside just adds to the realistic feel of this pic, it makes it feel like I am looking into an actual another world, not just a photo setting. 

I must also say that the focus on the characters is great, there is so much detail in the picture overall, but it is not confusing at all. That light is well put! ;) for more critique that you asked, You could have gone even greater lengths with the contrast of the highlight on the characters and maybe even added some light dapples to the forest bg and darkened the shading around/under the characters and in the forest behind them, however I think that could change the time of the day you were going for with this picture and the light dapples might distract the viewer from the characters... so all in all I do not have much critique to give you, I simply adore this picture and it is definitely one of my new favos made by you! 


that stone texture...

I'm really happy you liked it! :D Thank you so much for the long in-depth comment! :la:

I totally agree with everything you have to say! Actually you made me think about it and I decided to actually do and fix some of these issues (since how simple of a fix they are in the digital world, and with how much time this took, what is a few extra minutes? XD ) Huge thanks for pointing out the issues! :D And I'm thrilled that you enjoy the drawing! :D I'll have a fixed updated version here shortly!

I looked it again after your update, and damn it looks even better! ...which is hard to believe since it was so great to begin with. Also those light dapples you added are perfectly subtle and don't shift the focus from the characters and I think they add to the lush feel of the forest bg :D

This looks great! The landscape alone is amazing, but the characters are also great, full of personality and nice small details.
