Holy Liz's cow! Colors are beautiful. Environment and background are good. And despite some spilled ketchup here and couple not-harm bruses (doesn't know context of this scene), characters look so adorable and perfectly-drawn so I can't break eye contact!

Definitelly one of your best, if not the best, drawings of yours, Flathead! Bravo!

I'll say it before and I'll say it again. This pic is bloody marvelous and not just literally but figuratively as well.

The pic has captured the emotional scene perfectly just by the expressions of the characters as they finally are able to understand and forgive each other and move on. It is so satisfying and emotional to me. The background desert is done very well with the signs of their Sura and Striker's struggle visible in the sand and the scratches on their bodies.

I still see the blood as a little to light but it doesn't take anything away, it is very obvious that Sura and Striker are both hurt and the scars on Sura's body including her neck only remind those who have read the story of the previous run ins those two have had with each other.

Striker is also a little on the light side but it it but a minor thought, he really comes into his own here and while he may look a little like Taunt there is just something in his expression that is undeniably Striker. Apart from those tiny nitpicks in colouring, Sura and Striker are drawn perfectly and I have to say that Chomper is drawn perfectly here as the mediator and interpreter for their conversation and he looks so satisfied to see them sort out their differences.

Words can hardly describe how much I love this pic. You have really outdone yourself, very impressive for your first commission and it is almost perfect in every way. I look forward to seeing more of your work.
What's the point in being mad if you don't do mad things now and again?

This is a marvelous drawing, Flathead! Your light colouring definitely works great for these desert-type backgrounds!

As for everything else, I'm afraid TLD already said everything there is to be said. You can be proud of this one man  :ChomperPOG

Thanks guys! Glad to finally finish this one!  :rhett_smile

@Sneak
Yeah a lot of ketchup packages were spilled and Sura and Striker are agreeing on cleaning it up  :PCera

@The Lone Dragon (I don't know how to ping your name as it has a space in it haha [Oh, it still worked, cool!])
I'm glad that I managed to fully meet/exceed expectations!

@Ducky123
I am proud. It's been awhile since I've committed fully to a completely coloured page, the first for this year in fact.

This is amazing, Flathead!! The poses and facial expressions display so much emotion, and the colors and shading are perfection!! I really can't praise this enough, how long did it take?

Thanks Rainbow! I'm not sure how long it took as I worked on it every now and then over the month of July, though I spent some time before that skething out various poses to see what worked. I would say that it was at least 15 hours but could easily be more then that as well.

This is great stuff, Flarthead! Loving the colors you used and the blending of the "blood". I don't know the scene but the characters look very expressive. Job well done, I'd say :)

Thanks!
I almost didn't even see you say Flarthead there  :OhYou  :PCera

Yeah it's pretty deep into TLD's fanfic so that's fair.

I've read Swimmer Trials to this section and I must say the scene is captured astoundingly well. The scope is very big, the spiny backgrounds, bloody wounds, footprints, and desert, and the reconciliation pose Sura gives Striker sells the scene between swimmer and fast biter. :duckyhappy
Would it be possible for swimmers and flyers to get more love around here? Both figuratively… and literally.
