Well of Light by spoonbard Well of Light by spoonbard
Just a real quickie! An illustration of the main character from Signal to be part of the design for the cover of the paperback edition. :) I enjoyed doing this one, it had a nice inspiration to execution ratio (if that makes any sense).

EDIT: Tweaked the ears, as they were a little high in the original illustration.

I wish I understood what makes your art so attractive. The process seems simple, it's not like I can't figure out how you did this, but if I tried to replicate it, I know for sure I'd fail.

Hmm... I'm not sure. It's hard to judge the finished quality of your own work, and there's always a specific feeling that accompanies a specific artist's work that's very hard to replicate.

It sounds really obvious if you put it that way XD Thing is, people usually imagine they could replicate something if they mastered the medium ("if only I could paint with oils", "I need a bigger tablet" and so on). But this is a fairly simple image, and the uniqueness stood out even more due to that. Not sure if it makes any sense to you, but it does to me :)

Yeah, I tried putting that in, but since it's up-lighting if I made it realistic, it just didn't work with the image :(
