Dreamkeepers: Walk with me? by byakurai1313 Dreamkeepers: Walk with me? by byakurai1313
Original drawing done on 11x14" bristol board, drawn with inkbrush pen. Used Photoshop CS5 for colors. This is my second attempt at design in Photoshop.

The characters are Mace and Lilith from David and Liz Lillie's "Dreamkeepers" graphic novels. The coloring in those books is phenomenal, and while I've never done fanart before, I decided trying to replicate one of the locations and characters from the books would be good practice. Needless to say, my work doesn't hold a candle to the real deal. The books are available at: [link]

Haha I'm totally counting on these two hooking up in the end. And Mace had darn well better avenge Paige, that'd be awful if he never does.

Wow! I really like how you've colored the moon, and the atmosphere of this piece is just fantastic ^^

Haha thank you! The moon's colors ended up kind of accidental... I'm still learning how to use Photoshop, and in a moment of frustration started arbitratily mashing buttons and then suddenly, moon glow. But then after some (calmer) editing, it ended up like it does now.

The atmosphere was tough; I didn't want to steal 100% from Mr Lillie, I wanted some of my own touch, so instead of the dark inky black/purple from the 2nd volume, I tried to go for the sharp, middle-of-the-night clarity you get on a brisk fall night. On top of a mountain. And under a purple moon. And next to a glowing bush. And...

Why thank you! These guys were fun to draw. Next time I'm gonna have to take a crack at Namah, Bast and Whip... And perhaps Namah will get a chance at her "Whip Stew" after all... >8D

ahha! yes that would be epic XD
Namah and Whip in the same pic would be a recipe for chaos, and Bast just adds awsome to it : D

Looks great! It definitely is recognizable as Dave's Forest, especially because of the leaves, and glowing elements.

Thank you! Though I must admit, the shiny stuff gave me a headache, and I definitely took a huge personal liberty with that shiny-flower-bush-thing Lilith is enjoying.
