"A still more glorious dawn awaits, not a sun rise, but a galaxy rise. A morning filled with 400 billion suns; the rising of the milky way."
Piece for ~kcravenyote
of her character Niko, which was originally going to be 6 hours, and then I got carried away! I didn't intend for a full background, but I got one. I really enjoyed working on it though, it was a TON of fun. First art of 2012, yay!
Also, I got a really stellar redline critique from *dimespin
on the arm closest to the viewer, and she let me draw over it to get the arm right!
Brush I used is made by the wonderful *Dreamspirit
, thank you for sharing it with me!
