An Epic Courage by DavidStrife An Epic Courage by DavidStrife
Thanks all for your support!

Cyrros, Blathon & Clyrhon © DavidStrife.

EDIT

I re-uploaded the file with a better image quality. This time is a .png file, because DeviantART uses to ruin the .jpg files (the previous format it was). I also resized it for a better print size, this time is a 50x50cm. How the hell I managed to get such size? Easy. Somehow, I was working on it at 1524ppi, so I was able to increase the size without ruining it, turning to 300ppi. So weird!

The previous artist's comments were very undescriptive, so I'll talk more about it now...

This is my favorite drawing of my whole gallery. Because it represents my best moments as an artist, when every new drawing I made was much better than the previous. The effort I put on this was enormous, because I had a time limit of 5-6 days. But all the support received from DeviantART friends helped me to get ahead with it.

Oh, it was an entry for the *anthrochallenge, the week's theme was "courage". Someday I should participate again, there's a long time since my last entry! I guess this summer I'll have more time for it...

:typerhappy:!Magnifica ilustración, DavidStrife!,
para no saber como iba a quedar finalmente,
te ha quedado genial, tanto en dibujo y color,
como en equilibrio de la composición.
El fondo esta super, el cielo que has hecho,
hace que aún te metas más en situación
y detalles como el pelo de los personajes
y los brillos de sus armaduras estan
bien trabajados.
A mí tambien desgraciadamente,
los dibujos que más me han gustado de
los que he hecho, casí se puede decir que
no los he planificado, a lo mejor sera
porque en ellos volcamos más alma
que tecnica(No vayas a creer que desprecio
la tecnica, todo lo contrario).
Con tu permiso lo pongo en mis favs
en el apartado de SPANISH ILLUSTRATIONS.
Ciao:bye:

A veces pasa, tío, tenemos días en q las cosas nos salen más finas... Además, me parece haber leído por aquí que lo fuiste dibujando un poco instintivamente, y a veces estos impulsos son casi imposibles de reptir... Qué putada xD

Realmente se ve muchísimo mejor que antes! (creo que este, junto con Divine Justice, fueron los dos motivos principales para vigilarte de cerc--- eh... agregarte a la lista de amigos (XD)
El ambiente de é;pica prácticamente puede respirarse, y a pesar de la oscuridad de la imagen, muy nítidamente puede notarse el brillo y expresión de los personajes.
Así que en PNG se ve mejor que en JPG? de eso no sabía nada; probaremos así para el próximo dev!

Fav!

Waaah, ahora que me doy cuenta, el de Divine Justice también se ve mal!!!!!!!! (por ejemplo, por la parte superior del pelo se ve un granulado extraño en el fondo). Lo corregiré cuanto antes.
En fin, son de mis mejores obras, me alegra que te gusten!

I remember when you first uploaded this piece, this happens to be one of the best things I've seen since I started drawing anthro. I'm inspired every time I see it, so I'm buying a print of it soon :)

Ya lo he escrito por ahí, unos 5 o 6 días... pero me levantaba todos los días a las 6 para hacerlo. Fue una matada, pero estoy orgulloso del resultado! (la presión era enorme, sobre todo los últimos días)

Y pensar que sólo tenía planeado hacer un personaje... fue creciendo y creciendo hasta lo que se puede ver, aunque el cansancio se nota en los personajes de alrededor. Con más tiempo, les hubiera hecho mejor equipamiento!

I love this work a lot! But there are some equally good on your gallery! As for the JPEG compression, it depends on the algorithm you use. If you use standard algorithm in maximum quality, there's a strong chance that your browser will not ruin the image display while decoding it. I submit many things in JPEG :)
Reply
:icondavidstrife:
DavidStrife Featured By Owner Jun 16, 2008
Very thanks!
When I save files as .jpg, I always set the maximum quality with Photoshop (12). The fact is that it looks fine in my computer, but when I upload it to dA, appears some kind of noise around the objects. It's weird, but it doesn't happen when I upload as .png!
