Journey Into The Unknown, by Dragonflyandromeda by Andorada Journey Into The Unknown, by Dragonflyandromeda by Andorada
Thank you very much to DragonflyAndromeda for giving me permission to draw this breathtaking photo: Journey into the unknown :heart:
It also resonated somehow with the idea of support in difficult times, supporting each other, creating a magic moment out of an apparent challenge.

Digital drawing with Krita.

For this one I worked till early in the morning of the third day... :D (while having a lot to deal irl also) The ants took me like forever. I had no idea what to do with the background, and I left it last, hoping I figure something out. And I did, ...in like 2 minutes :D I still need to work on the reflections in the water - they are too blur, one needs sharper, more defined areas there.
Full credits for the content goes to DragonflyAndromeda for creating such an amazing, inspiring photo!!

I knew the photo beforehand (it really is gorgeous :heart:) but you really make it come to life with the digital paint as well :aww:
It's really fun to hear what it actually takes to replicate it so well - it must have been quite a challenge but you did it :D (even though I sense you always feel like it could do with a  bit of tweaking :giggle:)

Actually, the whole secret about it is how much one is willing to spend on details. Skills aside, it really boils down to this. I kept hearing this over and over again from different people I admired for their drawings. Anybody can draw. The difference is how much time one invests in it. What I got from this is, if I really like something estetically, than I am able, sooner or later :D :phew: to do something based on it. And what I observed now first hand is that practice speeds up the process. I managed to make a drawing in 4h and half of a better quality than another where I spent many days over weeks, trying to figure out how to make :D

A good friend once said, "If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together." I think this work of yours completes that phrase in the sense that, "If you want to go up, lift the down." Ants are amazing. I am a dummy! I am a dummy! Love

It's a really lovely drawing (and photo of course :) ), such a heartwarming atmosphere and colour pallete.

Except the idiotic joker in me keeps thinking those ants are actually in some kind of dispute?
"We should carry the leaf this way!"
"No! We're taking the leaf THIS way!"

Hihi, i had that thought, too! But they can also balance each other ;P and have more liberty of movement, to stir in more directions.
I absolutely loved working on it, because of the colors! Like diving in another world for a while :sun:
