100 Themes Challenge: 98. Puzzle

I am really proud of this piece! I worked..practically all day on it (on-and-off, obviously, and that was just shading and bg!) Um..I chose "Puzzle" because Gligar is asking his older brother a question, and Gliscor is trying to put the answer in a way that isn't too awkward.
..or that's how it looks to me. That little explanation was a spur-of-the-moment thing. ^^;

Uhm..yeah. I used [link] to help me with my rock-slab. :D

EDIT: I shaded Gliscor's left inner ear and did another level of shading on his 'cape'. They were bugging me.

What is Gligar asking? Oh let me guess! Due to Gliscor's awkwardness, I think this is being asked:

Gligar: Hey Gliscor? Where do babies come from?
Gliscor: !!!!!! Um......well, you see......How shall I put this......?

Gligar: But mom and dad just told me, "Wait until you're older. You're older than me, so I though I'd ask you!" :D
Gliscor: Um well :blush:........They come from the stork.........
Gligar: But where does the stork get them?

I like this! The lighting is very shweet, and their poses exemplify the title (even if it was spur-of-the-moment) :D Great job!

Gligar: What's the best way to steal cookies from a house that's full of humans?
Gliscor: Euh.......^^;
(answer: Discreetly ,:3)

Aww, they're cute! I liek the facial expression on Gliscor and the shading is super awesomeness throughout the whole picture. All that work paid off. (lol i love how when a picture is worked really hard on, the artist is always going back and changing it XD)

x3 Thank you~

(I know what you mean, but it's because so much of the artwork is so good that, to the artist, the mistakes seem more promintent)

I like the way both Gligar and Gliscor are drawn and coloured, and the background is very good :3

Thanks, I worked hard on the anatomy and shading of the two. I put a little less work into the bg though. ,<D

My first thought was that they were up somewhere in space ^^; , it's hard to tell if the moon's closer to the ground than it should be, or the rock's just pointing to the sky insted of being straight horizontal (hopefully the latter).

You did a nice job with the colouring though, and the illumination adds a nice touch. ^^

Let's hope their not discussing 'The birds and the bees'.

They're at the edge of a ledge that leads from the cave they stay in. The rock does point up a little bit, though; you're right. I'd think they chose it for privacy and wind blockage. x3

Thanks. I worked quite a while on the shading.

Oh, dear. Let's hope not! xD
