Contest prize for kuiwi of the characters that she created for the contest, Capplecorn the fishing cat and Fizkin the wood mouse.

It's been a while since I have enjoyed working on a painting this much. It gave me an excuse to try out my geometrigraph and polygraph set for the stained glass (www.leevalley.com/en/wood/page….

Medium: Acrylic, Golden brand garnet gel, and coloured ink

Their beautiful reference: Capplecorn and Fizkin REFERENCE SHEET by kuiwi

Capplecorn and Fizkin are kuiwi
Artwork is MoonsongWolf

Oh my goodness I can't believe I didn't see this until now!
*has a mini panic attack

This is totally gorgeous. The window is beautiful and the fur is wonderful and HOW HAVE I NOT SEEN THIS IT WAS DONE ALMOST A YEAR AGO?? I had just assumed you hadn't finished it for the longest time!?
Oh my gosh I feel like I've found some hidden treasure chest or something and am amazingly happy.
I'm going to stare at this happily for a long long time.

Oh, I'm so glad that you liked it! I just feel like such a jerk for totally thinking that you had seen it already. Bucktooth 

I hope you will like the original even more when you get it! It has some pretty nifty texture on it that looks better in person.

Very much loving this texture too! It gives it such a... rusty appearance to fit the atmosphere. And loving these designs immensely. Very creative of *kuiwi if I must say :D
Beautiful stained glass as well!

Don't worry about late replies. I understand that life has a tendency of happening. Plus you keep telling everyone that you'll be busy, so it's not a surprise.

I'm going to say this first because it's extremely jarring, especially in the thumbnail, but the window and the picture clash pretty badly. They're both beautifully rendered in and of themselves, but I'm having a lot of trouble seeing them as something that goes together, rather than just a sticker placed atop the drawing. If the sun is beaming in through the window, then you're going to have a brighter interior, with more colors washing over the walls and characters. If the sun is not shining through the window and is just glistening with refractive light, then the window isn't going to be as neon-bright.

The characters and scenery, however, are lovely! I'm especially in love with the rough stonework in the background, and how softly it complements the fur. The rat fades a little bit into the background, but once I spotted him, I thought he was adorable! You definitely have a good eye for animal posture and posing, something I defintley struggle with! He just looks so...rat-like!

I actually quite heartily agree with your critique. I actually wanted to add a bit of a diffuse halo around the window (it would be lit by LEDs or something similar rather than sunlight, since everything is an interior setting, but it would have a similar effect). However, I lost my nerve by the time I broke out the airbrush. I was afraid I was going to screw up the painting and lose 12 hours of work, ha ha. I really need to practice with the airbrush a little more so that I won't be so nervous about using it. Maybe next time, we'll see! I had a blast with all of the textures, though. And the characters! They have such cool designs; it made them a lot of fun to paint. :)
