Forest Healer by ancalinar Forest Healer by ancalinar
She does her work quietly.

Palette challenge piece. Tried to go for a more soft, illustrative look.

I think it's very likely! You've had luck with commissions. Maybe you can make a journal or a poll beforehand asking your follows for input before you make it available?

I really like this piece, especially all the different textures. The rough tree, soft border, bony and sharp legs- I don't know, it just comes off with really interesting contrasts. And the story here is really lovely. The blurb in the summary was probably the cherry on top. Thanks for creating such a lovely piece of art!

I love it when characters have their hair in their eyes. (I hate it when my hair gets in my eyes thought :p)

Cute! I'd add some white spots on her butt or something to give it a little contrast though. :D

I love this, it's so soft ... I love how even the conformation of the deer tells about her personality.

Huh. Anything hiding their eyes makes me think evil, but the soft shading and delicate lines, even the colors made her look -almost- innocent and nice. Second look made think she's an albino deertaur... don't ask... and perhaps she became a healer because she wishes she wasn't so sensitive to the suns rays and that someone had helped her in the past.

Anyway. Soft shading and colors, yes you should do more like this, and I'm not sure why, but the oval of forest and her being outside it made her look nicer and careful. Maybe because she's different from even others like her. Nice

More like this? Hmm, I will have to try. :]

What makes you think she's evil, aside from the covered eyes? I like the albino deertaur idea, for what it's worth. She must've had some pretty painful sunburns in the past. Also makes sense that her eyes are covered - most albinos have really poor vision, she could be blind.

Ehh apart from the eyes... I have a completely un-rational fear of healers that help without being asked. 

Also she's Pink. And Delicate. She'd have to have something up her sleeve, or in her bag, that would keep others from using or attacking her. Possibly like if you meet her eyes she can turn you to stone...
