Commission - Ravekitten 01 by Nashya Commission - Ravekitten 01 by Nashya
Hide and Seek...

Commission for *ravekitten.

So, okay, here's one of the biggest reason it's taken me forever to finish commissions. I felt like my art was lame. I decided to break away from the standards (for me) of a character standing there looking cool with HINTS of a background. Boringness to the max is what my art was becoming. Boring on top of extra lame!

So I went all out. Full blown illustration/animation looking type stuff. I figured if I can do a comic page with panels full of art like this, what's one stand alone piece? I like the idea of a single piece telling a story. I'm very proud of myself and I hope *ravekitten likes this XD;; She'll be seeing it for the first time whenever she gets on to dA today.

I can't draw animals. So I made up some creatures that look like they're cross-bred with Pokemon.

Hee hee, her squirrel tail looks like fun! I bet they are all gathering goods for the fall. The red fur on the other squirrel like creatures is pretty unique, fantastic work on this!~

I can definitely see this more as an illustration with a background story, you're great with comic panels!

I think the composition and depth (and "oomph") in your images just took a huge step forward when you decided to make them full-fledged story-telling panels =) Congrats.

I'm going to try and take a page out of your book, do more background-foreground-character pieces. It's still tough for me to visualize out, though.

absolutely astonishing. The deep dark colors and the animals and the girl are work together well here.

I looks amazing. You make me envious of your skill, seriously you do. I may lurk more often than not, but I felt I just had to say that today.

As to the critters: I WANT ONE!

I LOVE this commission, I wish I was able to buy one myself. You going out of the normal standing still pose is excellent and this is beautiful.

I also love your animals. They're very interesting, much better than the new pokemon coming out.

awww, this is SO cute
djgaijin Featured By Owner Aug 14, 2010
The critters remind me of the squirrelfox from Nausicaa. :meow:
Kalmiya Featured By Owner Aug 14, 2010
I love the lighting on this, it totally brightens up (pun excluded) the picture and looks so happy. (:
ravekitten Featured By Owner Aug 14, 2010  Hobbyist Digital Artist
This is spectacular and so worth the wait! Everything is so wonderfully done, the critters definitely match the fantasy universe Marozi comes from, and GOODGOD THEY ARE ADORABLE <3
I love the fact you're telling a story with the image, having her collecting berries and finding these wonderful little fellas in the process. I love how you included her love for animals here, the one time she's seen without her liger (he'd probably scare the little ones away lawl). The one by her arm is especially adorable.
I love the perspective of the little treecove, and the colours and shading are brilliant <3

Thank yew! I do love this!

So lovely! You definately got Marozi's personality to show through in this image :D I love the pose and her expression. The little critters are really cute and suit the characters setting so nicely. Love the warm colours and lighting, feels like the end of summer.
ShinkonoKokoro Featured By Owner Aug 14, 2010  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Whoa! This looks so cool! The background totally makes it pop and really draws your attention. :) :heart: I love it! Everything about it is exciting: the pose, the colours, the animals, the expressions. Looks great!
dreor Featured By Owner Aug 14, 2010
Again with the great details! Way to portray Marozi in an environment that suits the character's universe too.

This is an amazing picture, I'm glad you pushed yourself. I really like the early morning look it has <3 How do you get that glow without making it all fuzzy?

Was just thinking this lot of commissions seems a huge step up in bg's. ^^
What a crazy amount of detail. @w@
SmoteyMote Featured By Owner Aug 14, 2010  Student Digital Artist
Daaaaamn. I love this so much! I adore the colors you used and the expression and use of light are fantastic! Glad you're breaking out of the box and having fun!

I can't wait to see the rest of the commissions go up!
