Sprout Under Midnight Dew by Nashya Sprout Under Midnight Dew by Nashya
2 uploads in one day! I'm on a roll. Seriously (I finished 5 commissions today in one sitting). I lied, I couldn't resist doing this. It's a Sprout, or as I like to call them Baby Dahlz *it's soo cute~*. I wanted to play with green again after doing that murky and moody FG page last night. I love green! Anyway, I finally 'revealed' their eyes.... a bit. They do have them but they can see just fine through their petals so they don't swipe them away or anything. It's a matter of sensing their prey rather then seeing them. Um, this Dahl ended up looking like the very first one I uploaded... It just happened, honestly. Anyway, she's pretty and they don't really have separate personalities so assume this is a different Dahl, same type of flower. I tried to make her look newborn, still kinda earth colored *her hands and feet* and she's got pink in her knees and cheeks and such. Played with some more atmospheric stuff, mist, dew drops, and a pretty murky BG despite the bright colors. This picture is so.... creepy that it's cute.

Oh, she's harmless by the way. When they get bigger is when they turn into life sucking bitches.

Sketched on notebook paper, ink and colored Painter 6 and Photoshop 6. 3 hours start to finish!

Holy Crap. I knew their eyes would be freaky. I'm going to have to stab the next person who mentions cabbage patch children.

I'm glad you revealed the eyes. I was kinda wondering about them. It added to the opveral feeling of the Dahlz in general to never see their eyes.

She's cute, but there is an underlying current in her expression that I can't put my finger on. again, lovely work.

**soaks in Dahl-nezz**
DAMN I needed my fix! ^_^
These have GOT to be one of my favourite fictional characters...
They're so NAASTY, yet so... SEXXY! XD
(did you get that at all?? XD)
I think she coulda looked more... Child-like. Y'know... Less...
Threatening. This one looks like she's lying in wait...XD
Gee.. they sure learn early... XD
(your babies are growing! ^_^)

Kudos to you - for giving me another Dahl fix. (You really *cannot* be cruel and ruthless and deprive me, [and I'm hoping there's OTHER Dahl fans] of the Dahl-ness :tears: you can't!)

PS: I've done a few fan-art sketches, but only like one. And it's pretty crappy. I dunno wether to put it in Deviations or Scraps, so, check, if ya want. ^^ (i'm also not sure if I've submitted it, so I'm going to now. ^^)

Ciao!
