happy end-of-fall by luve happy end-of-fall by luve
because. its getting colder and winter's almost here!

doodle from the sketchbook.
which would explain why this westie chimneysweep is, somehow, still entirely white and not wearing a jacket.
these are considerable things for serious pictures only!

brush pen and other stuff.

Beautiful! Though I must say, having a white coat as a chimney swep seems rather impractical, don't you? :) I love it.

Westie's don't need no Jackets, they made from sheeps anyway!

The colours you've used are so fantastically smoggy. Just the right shades of greys, purples and blues, green and underlying brown paper colour...

You just really have a flair for this sort of thing, for working colour into a mood, a scene, an era, aswell as creating the most appealing character designs. It might not seem even all that magical to you, but your work often makes my day :3

The concept of a westie chimney sweep is plainly fantastic, haha! I love the atmosphere, with those navy blues.

Too cute!

I really like the smokestacks :D They remind me of the scattered remnants of old factories that grace the lesser-loved portions of my city.

I sort of feel like when it's cold and frosty and the leaves are almost off, that's when it's really fall.

also, what do you suggest using for white hilights? Gelpen or a paint marker?

I had to favorite this not because of the great look of the chimney and sky color, but because it has an excellent use of a Westie, which I have one of.

I have a westie, his name is waldo, and if he were human like a chimney sweet or a old man yelling at people drunk from his front porch would be him.

There's a frostiness in the air in this one that's almost tangible, which combined with the sense of warmth from the chimneys really makes this picture feel magical and alive. It's the kind of picture that makes you happy to look at. :)

no ma'am. i use the same colors almost every time. usually involved either a set of warm or cool greys, a sky bue, a light light pink, a mauve, some browns, an off-white colored pencil, two white pencils, etc. :]

Chim-chimney! Chim-chimney! Chim-chim-cha-ree! A sweep is as lucky, as lucky can be!

*snigger* Had too.

This is really cute. I love how soft everything is. I love how calm and quiet it seems. Awe hell I just love it! :+fav:

haha just kidding. the smokestacks mingling with what look like stormclouds is a really good approach, and i'm really digging how the lighting is coming from underneath.

you are making me actually wish winter was here already this year >8[

The chimmney sweeper looks so cute and I like how you created such a cold, snowy scene in an urban environment. Is the sweeper a west highland white terrier? He reminds me of my uncle's westie, a bit.

Haahaha yeah I can't imagine a westie sweep would stay white for very long before he started looking like a cairn terrier or something.

This is cute but the lack of jacket and all the smoke makes it look like kind of like nineteenth-century social commentary. Reform now! Better working conditions for chimney sweeps! Campaign for puppy-free smokestacks!
