Zack Hemsey - The Way (instrumental) ♫

Download for full size!

Drew this during the last Livestream 8) Some of you may find it similar to this picture: cause it was supposed to be a sort of remake of it, until I improvised and completely changed the background.

I'm pretty pleased with it <3 And it was tons of fun to draw!

Psssst, the people who watched the Livestream requested I hide a Mickey symbol somewhere in the picture, and so I did. Have fun looking for it!

I'll check the comments tomorrow. Enjoy!


Made with Paint Tool Sai.
Time taken: About 6 or 7 hours.
Skye and art © Me.

This evokes, to me, a sense of limitless space and even a bit of loneliness or longing to be something greater. Skye gives me a gratuitous sense of wonder, particularly in art of him at nighttime. You keep so much a secret, and as frustrating as it can be it also gives us the joy of thinking up a scenario all on our own. Thank you for just being you and for utilizing your extraordinary talent in what you do :heart:
God Bless :)

All this time I've been trying to think of what to say to compliment this...
I can't think of anything...
Too good for words. :thumbsup:

It actually, almost looks real.

There, that's some sort of compliment, right? :XD:

This looks amazing! :D The ice looks so real, it's like it's actually melting. The snow and the starry sky gives the scene a magical appearance. I love all of it! :)

This really is the definition of beautiful ;w;
I really love that star that's slightly blue and it stands out,....omg it leads to Neverland D:
You're really amazing at ice <3 I don't know why you don't do more ice/snow scenes, you make them look magical o w o
Skye himself looks mystical ;3; The soft shading style goes great with your BG
One of my favourite pictures from you I'd say <3

Very lovely work.
The ice is very nice and simple, along with that the snow is a nice touch, not to much just right.
As for the stars very well done. Didn't over do that either.

I didn't spot the mickey icon, but I spotted your logo. Very nice, it suits you.

But anyway stunning work as always.

H3ywhatsup Featured By Owner Jan 28, 2013  Hobbyist Writer
The detail is just amazing!
I can see all the drips from the icicles. The differentiating sizes of the snowflakes. I'm honestly at a loss for words. I just don't know what to say, so I'm gonna go back to staring in awe at the pic.

I watched some of the livestream, unfortunatley I couldn't stay for it all but it turned out amazing! I love the detail, you can even see Skye's breath :D
You're awesome at drawing ice, it looks lovely, and the drops of water falling gyaa. Such a wondering all round piece >.<
aacrell Featured By Owner Jan 28, 2013
Love the lighting in this picture ;u; so dark yet serine. Which is cool, because most people don't typically associate darkness with serenity. Fits the music very wonderfully as well, awesome job here. c:

Love that ice too ;u;
Fire-Flame-Fan Featured By Owner Jan 28, 2013


That's so beautiful ! Plus looking at it while listening to this stunning music makes me literally shiver ! Such an unbelievable beauty, quiet and loud at the same time, locked in one picture ! ;_; :heart: I totally love how dark, yet bright this picture is, due to the ice . You just... I don't know, you've just reached brand new level of epicness girl . ;;

PLUS THAT MUSIC GAH DDDDX I am so gonna cry soon . I AM SO GONNA CRY . ;_;

I LOVE the Skye's pose here . He's so calm, peaceful . And that vapor coming out his.. nostrils or mouth ... It can have two different meanings D; I can so see him sitting there calmly, in literally frozen silence, just breathing... BUT THEN . Due to this vapor, I have one more vision in my head . What if he's just whispered a wish to the falling star ? You've once had this "King of Broken Dreams" (sorry if title's wrong, my memory sucks) picture, since then I see Skye as more than just a happy playful dragon . I believe he has a not-so-nice past, or just som eevents in the past, ANYWAY, I can so see him staring at the falling star, whispering his wish, hoping it to come true one day, not to be just one more of these "broken dreams" .

And background, a mix of darkness and light, just adds to the atmosphere . That ice is wonderful, I love how realistic it is with these shines and all . (Also thanks to you I've discovered Luminosity ! :XD:)
And these stars... Just so many stars .
Sky surely was beautiful that night .

... Now look what epic picture along with epic music can do to a innocent commenter . :stare:;;
Bryne-Lasgiathan Featured By Owner Jan 28, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
When I saw this being created on the livestream I thought there's no way it could get any more awesome.
I'm quite wrong of course! I simply adore the level of effort that has gone into the realism of this image, it captures the serene tranquility of the winter in a fantastical way, and I just love it XD

SvenneTheBlockhead Featured By Owner Jan 28, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
Oh my goodness, this is beautiful! Your sense of detail is amazing; you even drew the blood vessles on Skye's wings, the water dripping from the icecicles and the fog coming out of his mouth. I love this!
Tazzooca Featured By Owner Jan 28, 2013  Hobbyist Writer
