A Thousand Years by Y-Frost A Thousand Years by Y-Frost
Journeying to the sun, she griped her sword of unicorn horn tightly. White crows dropped stars on her dress, while her ebony hair flowed like a warrior flag. Ink of colour and promises of how to be brave.

Wonderful! I love her dress and shiny unicorn horn. I like the Oriental look of the composition. Also the birds who appear to be flying out of the sun (or red moon) are great.

I LOVE the way you colored this!
I can't believe this is digital, it looks like an ink wash.
Only the sun looks digital O_____O

The plot and idea is gorgeous. I'm happy that I found a creative piece from all sides: The idea, the technique, the character, the background.

Very rarely do I see a piece which moves me. This is one of those times. The promises of how to be brave indeed.
Beautiful linework, decievingly simple yet so complex. Love the earthy tones contrasting with our black/white hero and red sun.
Dear gods, this is good....

Most of the outlines are done in pencil & I digitally coloured it. Unfortunatly the pencil lineart doesn't look that good...

what in youre opinion would be wrong about the pencil lineart? it seems fine to me tho i didn't attend the process of creation in my mind so hard to see for me where u think it went wrong :P

Oh I like this. The patterns you put into things such as the sky or her dress really give it a unique feel. Almost an Asian feeling to it.
