Oh wait, it’s a Zoub art!
Very awesome - congrats on your win. Absolutely love the pose and sense of atmosphere.
I'm so in love with the background here tho! Besides your awesome shading on chestnuts ofc. But there's so much depth and detail even in the more blurred parts and this gives me life ;; tbh I was a bit confused in the beginning because when I saw the thumbnail I was like 'Since when does Zoub upload photos of Show Jumping?' but then I realised and oh, boi, was I happy to see the ladies in action
Thank you so much! For some reason the background pretty much made itself this time; sometimes it can be a real struggle to tie things together :'D But ushfbgsj I am so honoured; thank youuu
But damn Zoub
Your shading gets me every time and this is no exception!! Hilas and Phoung look SMASHING <3 I just love your BootHighlights™
And that background OwO The obstacles are so detailed and nice- and those little flags ;; There's even a Switzerland blob haha. I'm amazed by all the details and effort you put into this even with being under time pressure. Wow, really! Definitely a well deserved win
Hgnn, I'm glad you think so! Highlighting boots is one of my favourite parts of the artistic process; I'm glad to hear it looks decent x)
Thank you so much Aliii I'm honoured! ; U ;
I don't even know where to start with this comment. Everything is so so nicely done! Hilas's pose is so engaging and dynamic, and the shading looks so real! And then there's all the countless details that seem endless ... wherever I look, there's a new detail popping up.
The placing was well-deserved!
I'm glad you think so! I sure had a blast working on this (well, minus the cold sweats over the deadline, haha).
Thankyouuu ; U ;
It didn't actually take a long time at all - well, not compared to my usual routine of working for days on the same picture because I have the attention span of a toddler This one was mostly powered by PANIC over the approaching deadline, hehe.
Thank you! I'm glad you like the outcome ^^
Water is the worst. She is certainly doing a good job at avoiding touching it!
I just love how you make your backgrounds look so natural and professional, it seriously does look just like a picture it's that realistic! The flags wrapped around the tree is a really lovely creative touch, and I just need to stand back and admire the detail and attention you gave to the jumps!
It looks likes the ladies placed wonderfully at the show as deserved! Congrats to them!! <333
Water, man.. scary stuff. Gotta avoid it at all costs :'D
I'm glad to hear that! I had to hurry a little to finish it on time, but I'm happy you think it turned out decent anyway Those jumps.. hehe... not my favourite things to draw, buuuut I figured I might as well try and make it accurate to the pictures provided by the host
Thank you so much
I just love how Hilas is eyeing the Water like "STAY THERE! Don't you dare to touch me!" xD
I really like how Hilas is like "Meeh - just don't touch it!" xD
That background is so gorgeous as well as the shading and all those little details everywhere! But I think my favourite is Phuong's boot xD It's so shiny!
It absolutely does not show that this is a last-minute-entry... seriously, how do you do that
Thanks, I'm glad you like it! Making shiny boots happens to be one of my favourite things to do, so I'm glad to hear it turned out decent x)
Hgnn, I'm honoured! I... think panic and desperation is a powerful motivator, hahaha
Thank youuu ; u ;
You should be immensely proud to get such an awesome entry done last minute. Like damn those details and that expression <3
