...and irony.



This was painted as a birthday gift for someone that makes me feel warm and fuzzy inside. :heart: I wanted to combine her favorite colors into one harmonic piece, with something particularly special for her thrown into the mix. I'm not a fan of ZADR, but I make the exception for my close friends. If she is happy, then I'm happy too. :"D

I won't be sharing a high-res of this, she is the only one that gets it. Sorry, guys! It is still nice enough to use as a wallpaper, though.


Now for some technical stuff... I received some pretty good critique on this one prior to posting publicly. I realized that my cloudscapes are fairly flat, and I have been given some tips to help improve this downward trend. I also do not like how the foreground so awkwardly meshes with the background, but I was really rushing to get this done in time and couldn't refine it further. I will take what I have learned from this piece and use it in future endeavors.

I will say that I still enjoy my new shading and coloring style for the characters. It was noted that they are beginning to look more like 3D renders, which I feel is a step in the right direction.

Well, you certainly combined her favorite colors beautifully :D
I bet you could make a nuclear bomb explosion pretty :meow: . . . making everyone forget that they are looking a devastating blast lol :happybounce:
. . .
Unless someone likes destruction, like Zim, who would be in awe at its beauty lol :party:

I finally got to take a look at this picture instead of seeing as a thumbnail :) I looked at all the colors, thinking, OOoo! They're so prweetty :3 then, I finally get to the bottom corner and go . . . What the heck is Zim doing LOL :stupidme: But, who cares, so long as your friend is happy, which makes you happy, and anyone can see the happiness expressed in this picture :D

Ha, your comments always make me smile! I'm glad you liked how I mixed her favorite red and blue tones together here, and I'm flattered that you think I could make even a devastating thing look appealing (sounds like a deadly trait, actually). lol I'm certain, without a doubt, that someone as destructive as little Zim would find it most amusing.

lmao, omg. I'm sorry for the "bromance" surprise down there! xD I am not usually keen on such things, but I wanted to do something extra special for my friend. I left my comfort zone and did something out-of-the-ordinary. Regardless, I'm glad you can appreciate all the "pretties" in the art piece. ;)

Thanks for stopping by and leaving a nice comment!

Oh it was a fine bromace lol XD
I usually quickly scan your picture before the comments :D
Then, go back and look at it in detail :party:

During that quick scan, I got distracted by the colors O.O
And then, I was scanning slowly, looking at all the beautiful colors :meow:
. . . Then, last bottom right hand corner lol XD I screech to a halt :stupidme: I thought Zim was making fun of Dib, pretending to rub on his shoulder, saying I wuv you Dib :love:

Dib would react- in the next second- Get off me freak lol XD

But, after reading the comments, I thought it was sweet of you doing that for your friend lol :)

I hope your friend didn't know, then they receive the HIGH RES picture going OMFG! :la: LOVE IT!! Surprises are always awesome ^.^ I imagined they felt the same way I felt when receiving that Fiona Fox picture lol XD Going! OMFG! :la: I LOVE IT! lol :happybounce:

I can always tell a picture is one of yours even when I look at the small thumbnails in my inbox. You have a way with colors; even though you vary your style, the way the colors come together on the canvas is uniquely Myla-ish.

To me, this is a picture that makes most of its impression through the complete composition, through the colors creating atmosphere. Some pictures have details that draw your eyes in, this one has details to look at, but none of them is overwhelming. I like it, it allows you to feel the painting as a whole. If you aimed for an harmonic piece, you surely did a good job.

As it is, I think there's something dreamy about this picture. The twirl of clouds is dynamic, and yet the warm, more intense reds transition smoothly into calm blues. Interestingly, it's the moon that attracts the eye much for than the clouds or the two characters. It sits up there, gazing down through a hole in the clouds, a silent observer, in a position so distant that what its look beholds below becomes tiny.

Nice art once again. I always enjoy looking at your work. :)

I am pleased to read that you can still see a distinct style in my work. Oftentimes, it is difficult for me to personally identify. Although I would like to be different, or "stand out" if you will, I'm not always confident that I do just that. It's nice to know that you can tell my art apart from the others, despite the shifts in technique and approach.

In your next paragraph, you nailed it. I aim for harmony in my work... Unfortunately, this is not always so easily achieved. I've been trying to make my pieces feel more "complete" or "whole" for some time now. I still need to work on how I merge my foregrounds and backgrounds, but I'll get there some day. c: Regardless, thank you for giving me some confidence along the way. I'm glad you felt this piece was a step in the right direction.

I'm in love with the way you described the moon up there... Gorgeously put into words in ways I could never fathom myself. :heart:

Thank you so much for your beautiful commentary!

Skies merge above in a duel of colors against the moon...Zim and Dib...actually appear to be enjoying each other...?! No, there can't be a God...! This is like Satan and Jack Frost holding hands and freezing Hell over! You just don't do it, man! Oh, well, enjoy the apocalypse...But, really, this is quite engaging, and well-detailed, like most of your works.
