Those tiny perfectly formed feet make me giddy inside. I don't think a life giving sphinx would appreciate me going, "GAWWH WOOK AT YOUR WIDDLE TOESIES"

LOL

This sphinx appreciates you for adoring it's toes.

I love small animal paws myself. I always give kisses on my guinea pig's small hands and feet :love:

tiny animal feet are the best! :heart: My kitty has a very saggy belly, so her tiny toes look totally disproportionate to her barrel like body!

Wonderful art-nouveau-ish style. Endless forest comes to mind as well. Calm, cool, and lovely paws!

Thank you! I also read Princess Mononoke a few times in my comments, I feel honored that people relate my drawing to such inspiring movies and games. I really want to play Endless Forest but I don't have a PC :(

I like how this is laid out. I like the mix or flat and modeled elements. You did a great job on the animal forms. I especially like the thin legs and long tail! The little hits of red are a nice touch too!

Wow! This is a different take than your usual stuff... it's nice! I love the trees in particular, the way they fade in, and the petals(?) are quite beautiful. I also really enjoy the peaceful flow of this piece... it's very soothing.

Thanks :) They were pretty muscled in the beginning, especially the forelegs. But in the end I wanted it to be a mix between a dog and a deer so I gave it thin legs.

How's your internship going?

Appeltjesgroen Featured By Owner May 2, 2010  Professional General Artist
I think that the thin legs would work better. It's more elegant~

And I'm happy when it's over! which will be end of May. I've gotten all my 102 internships day then so I'm quitting then!
