Gerla Family Portrait by sighthoundlady Gerla Family Portrait by sighthoundlady
I can’t tell you how many times I almost ran away screaming from this. This took…eons to complete. If there are any mistakes at this point, I probably don’t care anymore! And look, a back ground!

Do you know what happens when the power goes out when you are in the middle of saving a ginormous photoshop file? You lose it, that’s what. The entire kitten caboodle. Gone. In its place you get a black image and photoshop tells you "This document contains photoshop data which appears to be damaged." And then all you can do is cry and cry and cry over your destroyed file. Fortunately I was working on the background separately and only lost that and not all the rest. Surely would have committed Harry Kerry then. @_@

So anyways, love all these guys. The entire Gerla family: Herla and Gehirn with their two sons, Johan and Leto and their three daughters, Vasana, Neela and Indira. All characters belong to their respective players. What a pretty lot if I don’t say so myself.

Gehirn belongs to :iconmismantis:
Herla and Neela belong to me. :iconsighthoundlady:
Vasana belongs to :iconkatehallen:
Indira belongs to :iconalcinda:
Leto belongs to :iconapeldille:
Johan belongs to Faustt on the TEF comm

Ha, you know since you've said that, I can't unsee it, Indira will be forever sticking her tongue out now!

Is Indira the white fawn? Are you going to write a story for her too?
sighthoundlady Featured By Owner Oct 9, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Indira is the white fawn yes.  It's not likely that I'll write any stories specifically about her though as she is not my character.  She belongs to Alcinda.

I LOVE this! It's really stunning and magnificent. Whatever mistakes there may be, I certainly don't see them. The background is really amazing and I hardcore admire your technique. Like the way you've utilized textures to go with the soft painting. Just WOW. I could stare at this forever a;lskdf;asdklj

And gah, I've had the power go out in the middle of painting too and it's THE WORST :( :( I'm so sorry that happened to you. If you need help getting Photoshop CS6 (it has autosave) send me a note!

Love the composition of this piece, the poses and positioning really brings the picture together. Your hard work definitely paid off in the end! And of course you drew Indira exactly how I envision her.

Thank you!  So glad to hear I've drawn Indira well too, I love her design but dang, I still find it tricky drawing her face!
