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 )

Wow, every detail here is just exquisite!  I absolutely love the colors, the flora, the sun rays, and  the story behind it.

I wonder how one can play a traverse flute without human lips, but if she manages, she manages :)

Good point! XD These feline creatures can speak like humans though, so they must not be THAT different! :D

I like the colors, that contribute to the peaceful atmosphere.

Isn't she playing Prélude à l'après-midi d'un faune (Prelude to the Afternoon of a Faun) by Debussy, by any chance?
