EDIT: Someone on Tumblr requested a step by step on my process so I figured I'd link it here in case anybody was interested! [Step-by-Step Process]

Relaxing at the beach :B This was a request prompt on Tumblr.

Man I have so many issues with this drawing but eh I like the colors anyways, and I'm happier with my thin lineart than usual. Still practicing the soft shades!

Jay I dont even know what to say because this is magnificent!!!
When i saw this one on FB, I just ost my breath! I love the thin
lines and the soft shading! I also love how you brightened the colors
a bit to make him pop out! One of the first pics, besides the middle
one in the description, where he looks truly happy!! :hug:
Stunning in everyway possible!! You are truly incredible!

Thank you! I spent a few hours on it which is a lot for me, I did try to keep the colors muted and soft to make it more relaxing and peaceful than my usual high contrast drawings :B Thanks so much!

Thank you! Thin lineart is a challenge for me, as is using softer colors, so I tried to challenge myself in both areas >_> Thanks so much!

No you need to stop before the shark gets too cute

my heart depends on it

pls

Anywayyy, I think the only thing that kinda throws it off is the perspective of the left (my left) leg and there seems to be an empty spot on the beach between his legs (the plants kinda just vanish). Other than that I love it <3 Cloudy beach scenery is really pretty!

Lol I just keep getting cuter you can't resist :V

Thank you, yeah the leg is what bothers me the most, along with how it feels like he has no butt here (lol). The spot between his legs that you're referring to might be his tail? There is some brush in the lower corner between his tail and the fence down there, though I could've pushed that more too! Thank you! I love cloudy beach days :D

Pfff I don't know why you'd have so many issues with this, I think it looks fantastic. =) I really like the soft lighting here, it works nicely with the pose to build the relaxed atmosphere.  The perspective is cool too, especially the way the fence curves, and the angle of the background.  And those details you put into the shirt pattern!  I love the way the lines work with the shapes and folds of the shirt, rather than a texture just being slapped over the top.  Very nice. =)

Aw thanks, mostly the anatomy is really bothering me, I did a more gestural sketch without much for guidelines and that's my bad, hahah. I'm fairly happy with the color though, and I'm trying hard to work with a less flat looking atmosphere, I'm glad you noticed the fence curve! The shirt took forever and it actually came out too flat for my taste but I did really want to give it more dimension than a flat texture. Thank you!

Thanks! I like my cel shading but doing soft color is a nice relaxing break too, a lot less hard edged when I'm in the mood for something different.
