Tranquillity by xXScaley-MuffinzXx Tranquillity by xXScaley-MuffinzXx
EDIT: Gosh guys, only been a few hours and I've already reached nearly 30 favourites for this painting! Thank you all so much. I really need the support everyone, so I do appreciate every single one. :aww:

My first successful landscape drawing! :dummy:
I was going to add in a character of some sort to give the landscape more meaning, but anatomy was not on my side and, to be honest, I'm just too tired to care. Too much going on for me at the moment, argh. It's great though that for once I was finally able to post something with land in it, whereas most of my other digital artwork only contains skies and clouds. It can be pretty boring for the most part. This was to help me develop my skills in grass, colour blocking and perspective, and looking back on it now I actually think I've done a pretty good job on those areas. Yay!! :love:
So it's been nearly 7 months since my last successful drawing (Freedom - Art Trade with Imaginaful) and, I must say, this drawing turned out a lot better than I had originally expected it to be. Haven't been feeling so great lately so this painting was more or less just something to help me get back on my feet again. It's not perfect or anything, but I do feel better for the experience.
If anyone thinks that I should add something new here, please tell me your thoughts. I feel like something is missing on this painting but I'm not really sure what it is. Maybe it's just a lack of clouds? Anyway, if you could offer any suggestions that would be greatly appreciated. :tighthug:
Hope you like it, guys! Thank you for reading. :thanks: :heart:

This actually gives the feeling of tranquility, i can imagine myself as dragon there resting and looking at the stars, as i used to do that on the house of my grandpa on the middle of the nature XD

Well it looks really beautiful and peaceful, love how detailed you did it, the grass, the little shining bugs(or is other thing? XD), the stars and those clouds that looks like they are from a "nebula" in space, that tree that calls the attention and it looks powerful, like it has a meaning and a reason to shine. 

You truly did a beautiful work so here, let me add a song with the same name of your draw that i think it fits perfectly <33:

OHHH DRAKEN, THIS IS JUST SUCH A WONDERFUL COMMENT!! THANK YOU SO MUCH~ <'33
When I first saw this in my notifications I felt so excited. Like, literally I could go on about how giddy I felt and that I was so tempted to reply right then and there, but I wanted to save it for a time when I could write back properly. I would never want to rush things when talking with you. x) This comment really made me smile, especially at the end with the link to that song! The start of the video reminds me of the sad theme music that's in the Pixar film 'Up' - you know the scene where the old man's wife passes away and he has to walk his way back to his house completely alone? It's sad, but also very peaceful to listen to. I like that. :aww: Thank you for sharing the link with me! I can definitely agree on the fact that it suits my painting well. Almost like a theme music for a video game level or something. :laughing:
Thank you again, Draken! You are such an awesome person, and I really do appreciate you taking the time to comment on my works. You're the best~ :tighthug:

Good grief, you improve fast! :lol: Wow, this is incredible work! Just the sense of depth you've created is amazing, with the unfocused foreground and such. It really looks like something from a legitimate film! That tree in the corner is such a beautiful touch that adds just the right touch of loneliness. I'm astounded! Keep it up, my friend!

Awh Dragonitas... every comment from you is just amazing. :heart: Thank you so much for your support here! Honestly, until I had read these comments I never really considered this painting to revolve around isolation or loneliness, and now that I look back on it I can see why people would think that. :thanks: It's relatable to a lot of people, including myself, so I'm glad this gave off that kind of vibe. I'll have to make more drawings like this in the future. :aww: You are such a lovely person for saying this, thank you again.

Ahhh I take months to reply to things, I'm so sorry! 
It'll always be a pleasure for me to comment and point out the beauty in your work. :aww: Artists need as much support as possible, especially when a wonderful artist such as yourself should gain more attention! 
Yes, it really is such an inspiring vibe. I can just feel the emotions a relatability in this piece. You have a knack for creating pieces people can relate to! 
It will always be a pleasure, Scaley :thanks:

Oh my gosh Scaley! This looks absolutely incredible; I'm completely mesmerized by it. :icondragonidle:

It is tranquil. But it also carries with it a hint of something very dark. Did you ever see the movie "The Neverending Story"? This picture reminds me a bit of the "nothing" that consumes all. It is so beautiful, but terrifying in a way- like looking at one's own impending doom. (Maybe that has more to do with my mood than the picture. ^^;)

Anyways, you don't need to add anything more to this, in my opinion. That lone tree which is weathering a storm speaks volumes to me, emotionally.

It is the best picture you have ever drawn, in my opinion. :heart:

Thank you Xerion, I'm glad to hear that you like it! :love: I think it's awesome to know what kind of emotion this painting brings to you. :blush: I had another friend tell me that they got the same "loneliness" vibe  that you've gotten from this picture and, although my intentions were a lot more light-hearted, I completely understand why you all got this impression. :thanks: It's great that people can interpret whatever they want in artwork like this, so thank you. I appreciate your comment.
(Also YES! The Neverending Story is a wonderful film. :la: I remember watching it so many times as a child growing up, hehe.)
