Nobody knows it... by nekophoenix Nobody knows it... by nekophoenix
...but you've got a secret smile, and you use it only for me.
- Secret Smile, Semisonic.


No idea why, but I got that song stuck in my head today. I didn't even know the lyrics (aside the chorus) nor the name of the artist/band, but well, I do now, ahaha.
So I wanted to draw something floaty and airguitary (even though the song isn't very noticably guitary).
NOT as good as the last picture, no, It was going quite well, but I took a chance with the background that did NOT pay off, so ah well, I'm not all that pissed off. It's just one picture, and I'm surprised I could get ANYTHING done before christmas.

Dunno why I keep picking random characters instead of ones I have already made, maybe the restrictions of design. I do like having freedom to draw what I want, in whatever colour, be it a cat, a ferret, a human, etc...
I think maybe that's why most of my pictures will have random characters, they're just a representation of my thoughts or feelings at the time rather than a planned out piece.
LAWLS, DAT WUZ DEEP.


So aye, random cat lad thing. Floating in a sea of pink music...as you do.
Coloured with Prismas.
This wasn't planned out, it isn't anatomically perfect in any sense of the word, but it's not really meant to be.

Very mellow and airguitarish. I'm listening to Nickleback and I gotta say this pic really enhances the experience! I'm loving the pose and background. ^^

Ooh, thank you! :3 I really love the whole idea of air guitar floatiness, so I must come back to this idea at some stage

the background is my favorite part actually. nice character; if there's anything wrong with it at all, it's that his face is a little bit flat looking, and the angle of his hands sort of makes it look like he'd have to be breaking his guitar over his stomach to play it.

Mmmm that's one of the many aspects of your work that I love. The characters are always a representation of how you're feeling inside. Always random. You don't feel the need to solidify them.
This is gorgeous...the pose is really playful and cute and I LOVE the sherberty pinks and yellows!

I love that song! That's my boyfriend's song to me!

I know it's sounds corny, but yanno how couples have a song and whatnot, that song is our song! :XD:

Anyway, I love the warm colors on this one. The background looks really nice, I like the colorful music notes in the background.

Sometimes it's much better to let yourself go, you can get some truly astonishing ideas and pictures that way. :hug:

:faint: I love your 'backgrounds', the quotations there for a good reason! This is something that absolutely needs to be on a card or something, the layout is just perfect. :heart:

Awww....The colors are so warm, gives me a fuzzy feeling in my brain. All those little hearts and musical notes are neat and unexpected, all the more to create something totally out of the blue (or....red?)! :highfive:

The lil' spikey head and characteristically shaped tail is adding up to a cute anthro, and I seriously wish I could flip like that. :O_o:

:glomp: Beautiful work!

Whats wrong with the background?? looks great to me! your last couple of pics have felt really different than your usual style. They come across more as sort of mystical creatures rather than your normal anthro types. Your previous one "i dream in colour" felt like ice, water and air, this feels very hot and firey! For some reason when i look at it it makes me think of ... Jazz music?? lol Great work!

I did think of fire when I saw the end result myself! I wanted to go for a more spikey feel as my last one was very floaty/flowy. Thank you, I do like to see my creations as mystical! :hug:
