It's the Thought by y2jenn It's the Thought by y2jenn
I wanted to do somethin for Valentine's Day that wasn't something i've done before. I haven't draw lizards in a loooong while so when this idea popped up I couldn't get it out of my head until I got it on paper. I had so much fun with it, they came out so much better than what I hoped for. :love:

Happy Valentine's Day, guys. :heart:
Surround yourself with people and things you love and be happy with whatever half-chewed bug you might receive... remember, it's the thought that counts. ;)

I don't know what kind of lizards these are. They're Jennards. And that's a Jennfly. Gimme crits!

Nothing says love like a squished insect. I hope she shares.
Priceless expression and this would so make a lovely humourous Valentine. I could see my hubby getting this for me!

Now thats adorable! Quite funny but I love all the little details you got in there. The facial expressions, the grungy color scheme and that bit with her tail. Gotta admit that took a second look.

Oh man, that is adorable! The heart of the tip of her tail is nice too. I almost didn't catch that.
The attention to detail is crazy!
Although, in my humble opinion, I think that a lighter, brighter sky might suit this piece better. The dark sky seems almost dreary.
But over all, this is an absolutely wonderful piece.

AWE! thats so cute! they are so obviously in lizard love. the expressions on their faces are so cute; how he looks hopeful and happy and she looks satisfied and loved. I love how he's 'wagging" his tail and his butt in the air as he climbs down the rock to give her this bug he caught. She looks so proud of him too, which makes him happy, that he caught it all on his own and just for her, because shes his sweetie. I love how her little claws are clasping over her heart because thats where he belongs. Her eyes are a little bit too relaxed I think, but it also makes her looks like she is thinking of love.

One thing I can possibly suggest is to have more background behind her as well, as it seems that she is almost dropped form the picture. I dont mean to necessarily put her entirely within the frame (because doing so is not necessarily artisticly you anymore!), but to expand the background a wee bit to make her more of what is going on into an entirety.

All in all, this definatly caught my eye and I would LOVE to have this hanging on my wall. I guess it reminds me of me and my sweetie! :hug:

That is such a cool idea for v'day, it's nice to see something different. First of all I love the way you drew the faces, the elongated smiles on them are just too cute. xD

Their poses are great too, the hands clasped on the female and the eager-leaning-forward-ness of the male really gives it so much character and charm. It makes them believable.

The bug idea is awesome too. The frustrated look on him is amusing. It made me giggle.

The colours are nice, I like how you chose the really earthy tones. It's pretty, and again makes it believable. In the way of crits though, to make it just a little more interesting perhaps a colour of a different element could be added. For example maybe if the sky was a deep-grey-blue. It would help make the image jump out more, if you get me.

I've no idea about lizards so I can't offer any critique on the anatomy or anything, but I think it looks awesome as it is. :D I adore the style they're drawn in.

Lol, hope that wasn't too tedious to read through. XD I could have worded that all a lot more simple but I love explaining things.

Great work! +fav'd from me~
