In the Vale by CrystalCurtis In the Vale by CrystalCurtis
Where they are! Luke and Tinder walking through the Vale in the waning
hours of daylight, which fadeth away beyond the trees. She's all dressed
up in clothing she's unaccustomed to (and uncomfortable in); some
mandatory official business in the capitol from which Luke hath been
spared. She's perfectly capable of taking care of herself in the notoriously
dangerous woods; but Luke, being needlessly chivalric, walks with her
just in case.
(And also talks her ear off about some stupid thing.)

I just noticed the sword at her side, holy crap that's a beautiful piece of weaponry. What is she, hierarchy wise, cause she either stole that sword or had it presented to her. What era are we in here, High middle ages? Women must've had the most amazing tits when corsets were mandatory, we should bring it back. Yes, they're uncomfortable as hell, and I'm sure you could crack a rib if you tighten it in the right angle but... I don't remember where I was going with this. Lovely dark, rich colours, and happy all the holidays I missed while I was in my drunken state.

Ah! Hierarchy-wise, she's basically the equivalent of a police officer, nothing special. But you're right, the sword is very special. Way beyond her rank. (: I think by issue 2, we'll be revealing how she gets this sword~ And it's not an exact historical equivalent to the high middle ages, but that is the closest thing, yes! According to the fictional world calendar, the story starts around the year 1222, but the time period is kind of a mix of everything between 1000 and 1600, depending on what part of the world they're in. And thank you so much!! I'm so happy you liked it! (:

I was just looking at the other wip on tumblr, with her pointing a knife to him, and now this pretty scene in the woods with them. I love how you put them in different situations. But por Luke, I feel she's like gonna point the sword at him anytime xD

Sh is fantastic in fancy clothes Julie ! And that hair in a little different way,she is just so damn pretty !

With every new piece that you do, you just humble us all even more. I swear, if you ever taught classes for any of this stuff, i would be all over it!

Oh Lord, Chris. I'm afraid if I ever tried to teach anyone anything, they'd be so frustrated by the end that they'd give it up for good! xD lol But thank you!! I'd be more than happy to do a livestream for you sometime if there's anything at all I could possibly help you with!! but I'm confident you'll get the hang of photoshop as long as you keep working with it!!! :hug:

LOL i completely understand! My biggest problem is learning gradients and how to do it. I'm partially color blind, so deciphering them, sometimes, can be troublesome.

Another lovely piece! The line-work is wonderful and their faces are quite expressive. Dusk can be a difficult and elusive light to capture and work with but you have done a gorgeous job here. Simply Beautiful!
