I was in the car with my dad at Wednesday when I suddenly got a vision (yayay!) of this picture^^ And I was like: "Dad, I got such a great vision of a picture!"
And he: "Ok? What did that picture look like?"
"Well... It won't look cool in your head if I try to describe it. Wait and see."

This was a quick and fun picture where I didn't try push myself or anything, but just relax and experiment loosely. I think it turned out pretty cool! So yeah, it's some creature I made up. Looks like a yellow mix of red panda and lemur. It has found itself a cosy little nest in the top of an old tree. That tree was great fun to draw, btw. Of course not supposed to be realistic X3
I'm pretty happy with the fur too, cause I found a new technique for drawing it. I hated the way I did fur before.
All in all this has been great practice for me; landscape, sky, clouds and furry critter!

When my dad  got to see the picture, anyhow, he was like: "Ok, so your great vision was a lemur in a tree."
But he did like it :) Hope you do too!

Beautiful. I love the sort of soft and dreamy look of the landscape; and your little creature looks so real that it could be about to jump out of the picture.

the ringed fence around the tree like forms ,
is a good thing ,
~ reminds me of a stone circle place i used to vist ,
it kind of sits in the same terrain ,
yes youve done the landscape very well ,
the expanse of sky and the grassy hills look
very walkable into
the furry being looks very content there ,
in the tree ,
they add a nice touch of otherworldliness

It’s so open. I think my favourite thing about this is that sense of space.
