Waterlily Baby by wolfie-janice Waterlily Baby by wolfie-janice
Finally it's finished! Haha. I've been working on and off this for a couple weeks. I was tempted to get lazy at the end, but I told myself to suck it up like a man. And I did, and I really like how this turned out. This is prolly the best background I've ever done XDD

It's for an art trade with ~swiftwhippet, who is a wonderful artist and person, and I am very happy to be able to trade with her. Here's her Turkish Van kitty Cari.

Enjoy!

OMG JANICE! you did such a good job on her I can't even tell you... aaahhh! you made her look so cute and Vannish... and her fur is all clumpy and poofy, which is so endearing to me :3 and the froggy is such an adorable touch too. I love the namesake waterlilies in there.

don't even get me started on the colouring. the colours are so gorgeous and whimsical and lovely <3 the water!! I love how you made it dappled with everycolour rather than just a plain blue - such an impressionistic thing to do and pulled off so well! the reeds and the background are plainly painted but that's exactly why it works, the whimsical feel I mentioned - like they're characters from a storybook or something. and the sky being orange rather than blue... such a nice feel. it just adds to everything already there.

Ahhh I could just go on (and already have) about this picture. you did such a great job of it and I love it <3 thank you for trading with meeee!

Yeah, I knew I wanted to draw her with water, and I noticed that her showname has waterlilies in it, so I thought she'd look good with them. And well after that the frog was a must. XD

I'm really happy that they appeal to you like characters in a storybook! I try to aim for that with my art.

Anyway, I'm glad you like it! ^_^
