Into Light by Saimain Into Light by Saimain
Six months of working on this little by little inbetween commission work and life (*cries for severe lack of time*) but I am so pleased to finally be able to share the result with you all!  Hope you enjoy Morgan's face (and plant-stubble) as much as I do.  *______*  Just don't get too close; he still tends to bite.

You can learn more about Morgan and the "Wars of Avenan" storyline here: www.meadowhaven.net/wars-of-av…

It's really impressive, especially the sun blaze on his head. *_* I love!
Can I use it, only as avatar on one forum?

Ohhh hai I found you... I used to kind of moon over your stories before I had an account, and now I have one, and here you are, and you've improved so much, and here's beautiful Morgan still tending to bite... Hug 
I love the use of color and light here, it's quite eye-catching. :)

There is literally nothing I can say about this that hasn't already been said. What a spectacular piece! I've followed your art for years and alwasy longed to read the story, but this piece is above and beyond so many others. Just breathtaking.

Thank you so much! That means a lot to me. :hug:  If there is enough support on my Patreon, I hope to finally be able to publish Morgan's story, as well as those of my other characters, in a series of art books with writing to accompany the illustrations.

Are you going to post any of your own artwork on DA?  I visited your gallery but there was nothing there.  ^__^;;

Ah unfortunately, while I live to draw, I have no way to get my art onto the internet except by taking a photo and sending it to email. >.<  Not the best renditions haha.

I keep coming back to this picture.  I have been staring at it all day - the light and dark, the curves of his face, the texture of the feathers and plant stubble.  My mind keeps waffling to the beauty of the piece and then to the talent that made it possible.  I am so thankful to have come across your artwork.  It sounds completely sappy to say it, but your artwork has enriched my life in a way that only art can.

Aww, thank you so much!  It took me such a long time to finish this painting that it changed and evolved and became something far more than I originally envisioned.  Your comment means a lot to me--I'll admit that I kept it in my DA watchlist for so long so that I could read it again when I was feeling discouraged and frustrated by my lack of time and energy.  ^__^;;  Thank you so much for your kind words and for taking the time to say them.  :heart:

Oh my goodness!!!

I always look forward to seeing your finished pieces! I'm always amazed and stunned, and I feel like (if it's even possible because you're already soooo amazing!!!) you get better and better with each new piece you finish! I still can't even comprehend how such an AMAZINGLY TALENTED artist like you can still improve when you're already SO AMAZINGLY TALENTED!!!!

God bless you and your beautiful work. I will ALWAYS continue to be a fan of your artwork, and I hope I can come even just a little bit close to digitally painting like you someday. ^__^

I still have one of your signed prints from way back then, and I'll continue to follow your work on dA as long as you put stuff up. ^_^ :hug:

I've always loved your Morgan pictures, but this one made me fall for him all over again. This is such unique lighting for you. I love it. You just keep continuing to grow. The realism elements mixed with the fantasy, and the amazing lighting.... just simply stunning.
