Before The World Wakes by LanieJ Before The World Wakes by LanieJ
YEAH. I've been DYING to do a picture before daybreak with this color scheme. This is a full on screen shot style commission for my buddy, :iconchinesefightinmuffin:, of her gosh-darn GORGEOUS character, Shivaari, who's a maltese tiger. I've never heard of the maltese color mutation until I was introduced to this character. It's pretty interesting, if you want to check it out! [link] Obviously the pictures are fake, but the color mutation is a real thing. :XD:

Anyway, I loved doing this picture. I actually did the background and shading around the same time of day this picture is set in. It was really relaxing. :)

So, anyway, Muffin asked for a picture of Shivaari in a setting similar to this picture I did a little while back: . Now, I did a little bit of guesswork, here. I personally thought that the color scheme I went with REALLY brought out Shivaari's characteristics, BUT if you would like something more sunny and saturated, I can always go back and re-do the background. :)
Also, I made her stripes a little more... tiger-y. :XD: If you would like less or straighter stripes, I can also re-do that!

I played around with dew, mist and fog a LOT in this picture, if you can't tell. :D I really like the end result. Oh! And I referenced almost all of the colors from this picture: [link] then played around with tones until I liked it.
The trees are brushes, again... ^^;

I really hope you like this, friend!!! (P.S., I have a bigger un-watermarked version, if ya want it. :D)
