I don't know if you gave permission/ mind this.…  :shifty:

I didn't but that picture is pretty frequently used for rp without permission over the years so I don't put much effort into stifling them anymore ):

I've always wondered who was the artist for this, so it was you! Your awesome!
JeiFaeKlubs Featured By Owner Dec 11, 2014
I remember seeing this one somewhere during a google search back when I was 12, so probably right when you posted it the first time here. I remember being really inspired by seeing it, and somewhat jealous that I wasn't the one to own this character^^ I'm so glad I found you on deviantArt now, and bringing back my childhood memories!
Thanks for sharing your art with us!

I had a special moment - I saw this pictures YEARS ago somewhere and saved it on my pc to look over it from time to time (is that already forbidden? xD it was not from deviant xD)
and here I step by and somehow have the feeling of being nearer to the person that created this beautiful artwork fullfilling me with happiness *___*

Shilin what program do you use to make your artworks?
SlovenianKnife Featured By Owner Jul 5, 2013  Hobbyist Artist
i saw this when i was young... and im here now...
tryantar Featured By Owner Jul 1, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
@Shilin This is amazing art. and basically I have been using it as a quality reference when i draw/colour.

I have a very very very important question... How do you do the water ripples? By eye? Years of experience??? @.@ Im lost as to how to achieve the same effect ... I would be very grateful if you can give me some pointers on the water ripples.

Loads and loads of Thanks
shilin Featured By Owner Jul 1, 2013  Professional Digital Artist
nowadays I do it by eye, but the ripples on this picture are just done with smudge tool over the final picture (:
tryantar Featured By Owner Jul 2, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
O.o Thaaanks for you reply :3 idk how exactly to do it by eye @.@ confusing hahaha. I ended using the smudge tool in the end :P Thanks BTW :)
tryantar Featured By Owner Jul 2, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
Btw I made an art which is in part inspired by this art. Thank you very much for your inspiration :D


If you can give some pointers it'd be awesome :P
