Commission: The Morning Sun by JA-punkster Commission: The Morning Sun by JA-punkster
Hi guys! I hope you had an awesome holiday and got lots of cool presents!! =)

Commission for ArbitraryRenaissance; I was given the extreme honor of replicating this beloved scene from the PMD series.. I'm sure that many of you already know the details behind it and know all about it much better than me so I won't say too much. I really hope I captured this iconic moment well! This was yet another outstanding learning experience for me.

Thanks so much for viewing and for your support! I appreciate your patience during these next couple of weeks.. lots to do!! I think I've fainted. 

Commissions are currently CLOSED

A wonderful masterwork!
You can very good draw in Digital Art. I uses only the old Traditional Art, because i have not much time to use Digital Art.

Truly good!

Thanks again! I started out making traditional art for quite a long time, until I purchased Photoshop. I've been drawing digital artwork ever since. It may take a while to get used to, but it's definitely fun playing around with all of its special effects!

i feel honoured to live in a world where masterpieces like this are created ok that might sound a bit cheesy

good GOD this is beautiful. i love pmd 2, i love these characters, i love this scene, and this is the most perfect rendition of it i've ever seen. props to you, you amazing artist!

also, sometimes i don't feel inspired to draw/am out of ideas, but then i see amazing pictures like these and my "passion" is instantly rekindled. gosh this is just absolutely gorgeous ;A;

I think you've officially outdone yourself in the background department here, Rachel. This captures that beautiful moment of dawn's first light on a darkened and dead world just perfectly.

When you put these scenes to life on a canvas like this, it's hard to think anything that's come before or since has been as meaningful and poignant as PMD2. Well done indeed.

You're always so kind! Thank you!! I had lots of fun with the mist and clouds, but I did need to glance at some references for the mountain crags.. always ALWAYS learning!

Thanks for viewing though.. I hope to make something just as magical with yours! =D

The crags are AWESOME. You've given me inspiration for a background I'd like to request in my commission...

Believe it or not, though, I still haven't decided exactly what I want you to draw. So in a way, it's fortunate you're moving right now so I have more time to think! :D

Oh my god, this is simply perfect! ;w; You caught the emotion of this scene so well, I just could start crying again! The warm light of the sunrise gives so much power and positive atmosphere and the way Grovyle and Celebi are sitting there, hugging each other, just warms my heart <3 I can even see Celebi crying! <3
Simply an AMAZING work! Great job, I love it!

The detail you used on the background really puts this together! The future looks so vast and empty, with the rising sun bringing up so much hope. Beautiful depiction of the scene!

I must admit, I feel shamefully proud of myself for having been the one to ask Rachel to make such a lovely drawing.  She's the one who did all the work and she should be the one getting all of the praise, but a part of me is thinking to myself "Man, I'm such a genius: I came up with the best thing to ask Rachel to create."
