A day in the mountains by Annushkathesetter A day in the mountains by Annushkathesetter
Been a while since I uploaded anything, eh? Alas, from now on I won't be here regularly. I have no time for neither art nor checking updates. Too much drama and trouble irl.

This is one of few works I managed to finish during my heavy artist block. Just representing my current state of mind, the desire to go away into a place where I'll be as alone, as Ambassador in the pic. Really tired of everything. Inspired by A-HA's "Crying in the rain". What a wonderful song.

I'll never let you see
The way my broken heart is hurting me.
I've got my pride and I know how to hide
All my sorrow and pain,
I'll do my crying in the rain.

This is gorgeous and holds so much meaning. I love the wistful look the dog is giving the bird in flight.

Wow, very cool drawing! I love how you drew the trees in the background and how they fade. The sky is pretty too. I can really feel the dog's fur :D

Take a break and refresh your soul.....just don't stay away too long or we'll miss out on your wonderful art!

I'm so going to show my friend this. :D She loves Borzi's, as do I. ^_^

Is that colored pencil?
The dog's fur is amazing. I love how it flows. The strokes are so clean.
The amount of detail you put into this is mind blowing. Fantastic.

wow, this is so beautiful! i like the fur texture and all the love and care you put into the background. all of those tiny details in the trees... each one drawns separately too. on a computer, you can just draw one tree and just duplicate it and spread them out. traditional is so much harder... how can you be so patient enough to do all the detail? and i love the sky too. you're amazing! :nod:
BTW, are you russian? ;)
Annushkathesetter Featured By Owner May 13, 2008
Yes, а что, за бургом бегает много Аннушек? ;))))
volchyonok Featured By Owner May 13, 2008  Student
да нет... просто ходила по твоей галлерее и заметила что некоторые названия твоих картинок (например [link] или [link]) русские, по-этому спросила. ;)
приятно было познакомится Анна! :D hope to see more of your art soon! BTW, if you want, you can call me Sveta, that's my real name. i haven't told my real name to anyone (on dA) yet, but i'm assuming a ton of ppl figured out by my e-mail address or that recent pic i posted... :lol:

А зачем такая конспирация? ))))

да не знаю... нас просто в школе учили, не имя, не фамилию, и никаких других персональных данных не выдавать по интернету. for personal safety reasons. а то кто их знает... но видно не послушалась я, i went against the rule # 1 internet safety rule. should i tell the other s or should i let them figure it out on their own?

This is amazing!
KaytanaPhoenix Featured By Owner Mar 27, 2008  Hobbyist General Artist
Simply gorgeous :) - I sure could use a place like that myself right now. The illustration in a whole is wonderful.. the eye is drawn right into Ambassador.. but the detail isnt let down anywhere in the image as most artists tend to do with their backgrounds, 'n I could only imagine the time spent on those trees given how much time I spent on a treeline on one of my drawings recently, lol
Annushkathesetter Featured By Owner Mar 27, 2008
Indeed, the trees were quite a challenge for my patience. I still can't understand how I managed to do them all xP
KaytanaPhoenix Featured By Owner Mar 28, 2008  Hobbyist General Artist
lol! I'm sure I'd be the same way! The small amount I did managed to get done through walking away n coming back to them, haha.. they still look way odd, especially for the image, so I've decided trees n I arent such good friends, lol
banana-peel-lake Featured By Owner Mar 27, 2008
Ohh wow the light coming through the clouds is simply breathtaking!! Love it!
TheWaffleFox Featured By Owner Feb 26, 2008
Lovely work, such a natrual setting for a borzio. Well done on knowing the breed as well.
wolf-spirit102 Featured By Owner Feb 23, 2008
Beautiful. I love how you did the fur and the vast forest beneath.
redwolf24 Featured By Owner Feb 16, 2008
wow...:faint:...this is beautiful. borzoi rule! awesome bgs
20jaguar Featured By Owner Feb 11, 2008
amazing!borzois are such beautiful animals!
sorrowisapanther Featured By Owner Dec 3, 2007
Wow, this really speaks to me. (Wow, that sounds stupid.)

This is almost exactly the image I get in my head when I'm feeling stressed and I want to get away from everything. I find myself longing for some secluded place in the mountains where I can be alone and just... calm down for a while.

Gorgeous work.
TeaseKitten Featured By Owner Dec 2, 2007
Sweet, I have been listening to that song a lot lately! Finally found someone who's at least heard of it, haha. I love your coloring, you made the fur look so beautiful!

I'm interested in hearing that song, but I can't seem to find it anywhere! D:

Do you know of a place I can find it?
Zoge Featured By Owner Nov 18, 2007  Hobbyist General Artist
Nevermind, I found a place! [link]

this is so beautiful. <3 the way the space looks so vast and open and beautiful, and the way that Ambassador is looking at the mountains behind him... it's so gorgeous and I think it goes with what you were describing.

I hope life gets better. :\ :hug:
Rayndancer Featured By Owner Nov 17, 2007
homg... This is way too amazing... I wish I had great things to say, but, it's too great for words. Well done!
RamonaQ Featured By Owner Nov 17, 2007  Professional Traditional Artist
Absolutely breathtaking! I think this is the best one yet - it really shows off the regal quality of the breed. Gorgeous!
RFZT Featured By Owner Nov 17, 2007
Ooh, these kinds of pictures I like a lot. The whole idea of escaping into the wilderness, away form it all and being an independent, wandering spirit. (that sounded corny, didn't it?) I particularly like the wind; it adds to the...independentness, I guess I'm trying to say. And the sun rising from the grey! And that the dog (borzoi? ) is looking back at the forest left behind. Uhh...did I explain that well?
This picture is extremely elegant and well illustrated. You did an excellent job of incorporating the character into the background in such a way that they are interacting with it. Very beautiful.

I hope things get better for you, as well.
Idess Featured By Owner Nov 17, 2007  Professional General Artist
Beautiful pic, annush <3 I love how you can see the rain coming in the background, and the bird adds such a nice touch.
I hope things go better for you hun :heart: And maybe sometime soon you'll find a place like where Ambassador is :3

Beautiful, Borzois are such lovely dogs, and this picture shows it. ^_^
Shabash Featured By Owner Nov 17, 2007
Да, ты закончила его! *умиленно созерцает любимого борзого* Потрясающе получился, хотя и в такой маленькой версии( Хорошо, что я не взялся его раскрашивать, такую работу было бы грех испортить. Я люблю горы, люблю борзых, люблю этот рисунок. Очень атмосферно. Молодец;))
