Spirit Artwork #17


You certainly hadn't expected THIS much mail. When that owl, Rose, requested that you help deliver a few letters for her, you thought you'd get only a small bag: the remainder of what her tiny wings had refused to carry. A muffled growl of contempt escapes you as you imagine that detestable owl, sipping some hot cocoa somewhere nice and warm, as you endure the aftermath of her demands. You slump over into the snow, oblivious to the cold due to your extreme fatigue. The letters spill out over the rocky blanket of snow, some of the thinner, more delicate envelopes betraying their contents. You glance at the open letters. You know better than to snoop, but your anger towards Rose and your burning curiosity say otherwise. You lunge for them, and all sense of the outside world begins to ebb away...

An awesome piece sent in by Veronica, also known as crazycoolcatsI love the character's cheeky grin! And the shape of the bow she is wearing is very well-defined. The subtle shading and many hues in the background help keep the viewer looking.

A cute piece by Ryan. It's so fuzzy, I just want to hug it! This is a lovely portrayal of texture. I love the way the yellow/gold is consistent throughout, as well. 

Awesome fanart by love puppiez! I love your choice of subject matter: while many choose to portray Old Frozenspirit the wolf in their drawings of Snowyclaw, it is obvious that this artist has stepped out of their comfort zone and attempted something new and exciting. The shading on the eye is absolutely marvelous.

A cute drawing by violet86271aj! The handwriting is very neat and curly and overall, interesting to look at. It reminds me of calligraphy. The characteristic "floppy ear" on the bunny is very prominent as well, helping to define the animal.

Another beautiful fanart by toxictacos, of Snowyclaw's kangaroo! A very interesting, simplistic style is used here, but it maintains recognizably by including the kangaroo's important features: a bow, a collar, and magenta markings. 

Very nice artwork by lucykate651. The shading and lighting in these pieces is absolutely phenomenal. The backgrounds are wonderful and give mood to the pieces. I love the variety of colors used in the nebulous-galaxy background of the first piece.

  25. I think it's her Disqus user, like mine is my Disqus user. We could play TFD. What's your AJ user, Pinkyy?

  28. AJS comments are not the place to resolve friendship matters. Sure it's "morally sweet" but if you argue.... :shakes fist:

    ReplyDelete
  29. No, sorry I'm not. But I have a wonderful AJ eye for photography! I could do a photo shoot and dress up some Arctic Wolves etc. for you?

  33. I absolutely lurve the description at the top. I can picture it so well - and I love how it's related to what's going on in AJ at the moment, or something else in AJ! I love, love, love how inspirational it is!


    Also, the artwork was just astonishing.


    Veronica, I love the spindly, slim, elegant frame of your Arctic Wolf. It makes regular Arctic Wolves look sort of tubby and short! It looks so feminine and pretty.


    Ryan, I like the fluffiness and the effects on the glowing fur of what appears to be a koala.


    Puppiez, I like how your artwork tells us while it's good, we can all reach those levels if we practice. I find it so inspirational! I like how the eyeball hat looks kinda square and .... what's the word? Abstract.


    Violet, a very interesting and adorable picture! Nice calligraphy and I would agree with you there, Shadow!


    Toxictacos, not only is your name amazing, but I adore the style used in the picture! Reminds me of A.A. Milne's work.... Winnie the Pooh! The artistry is fabulous and it's so different and unique! Really though, it's my 3rd favourite and that's saying something!


    My 2nd and 1st faves are Lucykate's pieces. I always think her artwork blusters me in the vampire's wind to a better place for ten seconds. Especially the last one.... the words, the deep yet perky relaxing, soothing, calm, undisturbed, curious voice of the Arctic Wolf I hear!


    As always, brilliant post Shadow xx
