The Forests' Song by 0laffson The Forests' Song by 0laffson
Inspired by the song "Night ride across the Caucasus" by Loreena McKennit.  This work has nothing to do with that song lyrics but whatever! :)

....a girl of my cat-like people playing a flute near a pool in the middle of the emerald forests of the Southern Isles... unfortunately one day Humans found rich gold deposits, so they cut down the forests and killed or enslaved everyone, but that's another story :D

Also, I think the "sunbeams" experiment was quite successful.  Here is the linework! 0laffson.deviantart.com/art/Wo…

I'm really trying to improve my drawing and coloring skill so I'd be glad to hear your suggestions / critiques / ideas...don't be afraid of hurting my feelings! ^^

EDIT  I changed the brightness. It's much darker now and similar to the original... I hope you still like it ^^

The Forests' Song by 0laffson. The suggester said "This reminds me of those old colored comic books or the 70's. I love those faded colors which leave all the place for this splendid character. The line art is absolutely remarkable." ( Suggested by Stygma and Featured by KovoWolf )

This is a really nice piece of anthro artwork. The style is very different from typical anthro pieces, but ultimately, it's refreshing!

A lot of anthro artists try to make their subject either very realistic or very cartoon-like. I would expect to your piece in a storybook.

 I actually aim for a "pseudo realistic" comic book style...^^  something not completely cartoony, but enough to give more expressivity to my characters :D (Big Grin)   I'd have serious problems with expressions on a completely realistic anthro head :-/

I have no proof of what I say, but these cats are not based on khajiits :D They are based on a D&D creature called Rakasta though...  it's a humanoid cat too
