I dream in colour by nekophoenix I dream in colour by nekophoenix
Not sure what it is, though I'm guessing some ferret creature of some sort.
Had no colour scheme in my head, no real idea, I just knew I wanted something floaty and colourful, so I'm happy with the outcome!
Also, Dad found my 0.1 Steadler pen that I lost, so I wanted to do some lovely inking with it!...but it broke soon after the first lines were made and I had to finish them off with a shakey 0.3, hence why the lines may look a BIT messy.

Also, saw *Marshroots's gallery yesterday, and her backgrounds inspired me :3
I don't often do backgrounds myself, so I am happy with it, YAY!

coloured with prisma pencils.


EDIT: ps, this isn't psycadelic or drug related in any way, and if you think it is, then you really try too hard to find things in something that don't exist. Colours does not = drugs. Okay? Thanks :3

How does this look like a tripped out drug moment? I don't get it. I think it's too beautiful. ^^ I wouldn't think a drug related one would even make sense.

Beautifully serene. There is just such a sleepy dreamy quality to her face that creates a sence of peacefulness in the picture. I think its absolutely fabulous that it is so colourful but not really active or busy feeling, I guess because the transition from colour to colour is so smoothly done. All the colours in her fur surprisingly make me think that her fur is very white and shiny (mostly).

Though I think it might have been a bit nicer if the character broke the internal frame on all four side instead of just the three, even though the flow of her body is so elegent it just feels a little off with her lefts cut off there.. I find that it draws my eyes out of the picture instead of drawing them around the picture.

Thank you so much for such a thoughtful comment! :3
You may be right there. I hadn't planned the picture at ALL, and so hadn't really even thought of any composition. I think a leg being out of the frame could work very well, but also may make her look trapped in a box of a world, rather than swimming through it, but I suppose we'll never know unless I make a re-make!

*Nods empahticly* absolutely. I am all about giving credit where it's due;) Just wanted to check as i know some people are a bit touchy about their art being reinvented in other mediums. ^_^ It may take a me a while tho but i'll make sure to let you know when it goes up.

Hello!
I just want to tell you, before I scan it one of these days.
I used this drawing as a reference for one of mine.
I used the pose of her body and the tail design.
I'm doing it for a project in my Studio Art class.
If you don't want me to put it in a gallery, I will not. Because it is technically you're idea. and you're work.
Because, we had to take an animal, and put all of this detail into it in the drawing process, then watercolor it.
So.. I was thinking. o.o; Neeeeko.
Because I love you're style. It's beautiful. <3
And then I told my art teacher.. " Uh..I can't put this up in the gallery, it's not mine. "
And she was all. " Well, modify it to be yours. "
And i was all. " uh... no. because then I'm stealing. " x_x So yeah, me hating art thieves myself, do not want to become one.
So just asking you're permission.
Please and Thank you. ^^

I'ma WEE bit confused to what the question is X3

I'm very happy you didn't listen to your art teacher on that one! Thank you very much for respecting me and my work, it means a lot :3 are you just asking can you upload it to dA? If so, then yes! If you like :3 just please credit my original if you would.
So sorry for the late reply, I've been away

Well, if my teacher wants me to put it in like a local gallery, could I? Because she likes to do that.
It would probably just end up in the school's gallery.
But yeah, thank youu. :3
