Forest Jade by Ahkward Forest Jade by Ahkward
Completed full color traditional for Kayru-Kitsune of their Jade Kitsune, a species by NinjaKato! I had a blast with this one, as usual due to the water and foliage. I have a love-hate relationship with water but I learned a lot with this one.

Anyway, enjoy!

I think the water and the foliage are the best parts in this drawing, your efforts really paid off! :) They are so calming to watch. :meow:

Incredible artwork! So many details and colours are so intense. I really like how the tree crowns are so swirly at edges, same goes for the tail. And I am always amazed by your nature backgrounds. <3

So cool to see a full color painting! Your water is stunning, the detail that you use in
your ink work transfers so well here, and I love how you kept the ink black shadows.
Beautifully done.

People like color I think... sadly more than black and white. 
At least, from what I understand.

I don't like coloring. I find black and white more enjoyable. XD

I can see that! It's totally cool :D You put so much detail
into your inking, that color almost seems like an afterthought.
Your style works best in black and white.

Aha, thanks! I am trying to get better with my traditional work. I noticed with working traditionally layering a lot really helps with that.
