The Morning Light by Nero749 The Morning Light by Nero749
The unfortunate few of you who have been subject to my complains about my own art, will know that I wanted my digital paintings to be more, well, 'painty.'

Something that's harder for me to do than you might expect, mainly because I keep feeling like I'm not working to my full potential. Even with this one I had to stop myself from working on the eyes too much, they're already almost too real to be 'painty' and when I look at them at the full resolution I keep wanting to 'improve' them.

But I managed to resist (this far at least) and I kinda really like this one. It almost seems to be an incidental companion piece to "The Dark Hours of the Night."


(Though if you say this piece's name out loud you might think I was hinting at another meaning.)

Haha, I was wondering because some of the pictures I've seen in your gallery are suuuuuuuuuuper realistic. Honestly, if they put you at the head of the animation department for movies, our animated movies would be out of this world. (And I'm not talking about cartoons, I mean when they try to animate real people, lol).

Hehe, yeah but movies would take forever to get finished; there was this guy (amateur) who animated this entire CGI piece by himself it's only like 6 minutes but he did it with just his computer and presumably all his time and impressed people so much he got offered a job by Hollywood!

I keep coming back to look at this piece. Amazing job on the sheet. For reals. Material has always been notoriously difficult for me, and a lot of artists that I know. Very impressive.

And the lighting is awesome!

Thank you! :D I love painting sheets/ drapes. We used to have to draw them at school all the time, but they don't appear in a lot of things I do these days... But they're fun to do!
