Out by the Gate by GrymmBadger Out by the Gate by GrymmBadger
A commish that's been on the to do pile a bit too long. I like how vibrant the vixen's coloring came out. Feels odd to have been commissioned for what's essentially a "cutesy" piece.

i really think this is very interesting.. there's not a whole lot of art featuring human males and anthro girls.

Excellent overlapping with the bushes and vines. The values in EVERYTHING are so awesome! Those shadows under the window ledges really give the background depth from what may otherwise have looked flat. Great texture, too. The cobblestones, leaves, metal gate, and curving bricks make the whole picture pop.

And of course, the characters. Their clothes' designs, colors, and values are faboulous. The lines in the vixen's tail flow nicely. I don't know how long I've searched for a work of art like this, but let me just say, "Thank you so much for creating it!" Some say humans and anthros shouldn't be paired together, and perhaps this might be the same in this picture's world too. Maybe they're meeting in secret. But I love the idea that two people with such differences can learn about each other and even fall in love. It's really inspiring, as well as heartwarming. If there's a story to this piece, I would love to read it.

Once again, thank you. It's so great know there's work like this out there.

One more thing, I think the scenery is beautifully symbolic. The background with its hard walls and geometric windows looks like a place where strict rules and tradition are followed. But outside the metal gate, flourishing organic plants grow, suggesting change and freedom. The man's position being closer to the building and the vixen being more outside in the open gives a hint at where these two are coming from. With that gate open, these two lovers can meet, free to be in love. Simply magical. :-)

By the way, what kind of plant is the man holding in his left hand?

My thanks for such kind words!
Unfortunately my answers to your questions will fall a bit lackluster due to this commission being so old and my memory mainly taken up with my own comic details and stories.
As far as I know this was based on a story the commissioner wrote. A googling of their user name might turn something up for you on that end.
As for the plant, it appears to be a bunch of holly branches. Holly seems to echo as correct in my memory.

Wow... I upload things like [link] and [link] , yet its the interspecies peck on the lips that gets considered odd?

Guess I have to step up my game.

It's pretty great that you took this commission, by the way, was this in line art at first? :?

Indeed, it even got posted to a couple of my galleries since I knew then it would be a while before the colors would be getting off the ground so to speak. The pencil work can be seen at [link]

I'm not sure how I feel about this. I feel slightly disturbed by it, I think. I mean, it's well done--as all of your art is--but I think I just enjoy it so much when you draw things where people bleed from their eyes or have extra tentacle appendages or are enjoying Meathook Theatre that this feels so foreign and scary to me.

Believe me, I know how you feel. I still hold out hope that one day there will be a sudden tsunami of commissioners wanting to pay me just to draw hideous things crawling out of/into other hideous things amidst a clockwork labyrinth of entropy and apocalyptic scenery.

If I had the money, I would commission you for such a thing. Alas, all I can do is compliment your excellent skills at evoking the macabre. And save up money to buy a copy of the SG if you get it printed.

And you know what? The compliments are more than enough coming from a fellow talented artist.

I think offering a print version of the Grimoire is a definite possibility. But first step is actually finishing it. Fourteen pages down, sixty-six to go!

The tail is the probably the strongest part about the entire piece. The unfortunate thing about this piece is that the linework is like... over 6 months old and would probably be infinitely superior if done now.
