"Breathtaking" is the first word that comes to mind. I almost can't fathom how you did this, but am amazed at the astounding level of detail and high degree of control you have over the medium.
The soft, subtle gradations of tone and the gentle interplay of light and shadow is so subtle, it blows me away.
The overall image has a sort of Celtic feel to me, which adds a nice ancient feel to it. The eyes and the fur are particularly eye-catching, as are the clouds. This is a very amazing image, finished to the highest standard. It shows your skill very well!
Please keep up the good work, and please update your profile here, soon. We miss you.

Yes, it's my anthro addiction talking again, that which made me fav. But I don't consider this less than worth that star plus sign.... I consider it worth every stare I've put into it since it came up across my pages. Not sure I can say enough about her...

Form, function, and all those little details sing. She's a story waiting to be told, and of course that story could probably be found with kyledamora; your work makes me want to go sniffing around to see if it's yet been told.

Other details: The layout really strikes me. It's a wonderful use of white space and line to box in the scene - and it's equally important to follow down the back of her tail and across the rocks breaking that wall of picture frame. (Not breaking the fourth wall in illustraiton terms, but just a great use of layout.)

The edges of fur and pattern, the look in her eyes and face, and most of all, her dignity! These things all make this a picture I'd love to have framed and mounted, yet I understand too that the love the owner has for his/her character makes such sales unlikely, and that is fine too. I just wanted to let you know. So many artists do their anthros in cheesecake... or worse, the going currency and attention getter, that I can't help gushing when I see someone produce something good - that doesn't fall into those categories. The work you've done in the past on your OC's impressed me from the start, both with form and those ideas, and this is no exception here. Thanks for sharing these, it is appreciated, even if I'm late in showing it.

What incredible attention to form!

I like her curves and tail. :drool:

I like the curves, the tail and the tattoos. :)

Nope, can't say enough good things. Dye or bleach? Doesn't matter, both fox and her surroundings are gorgeous.

Rosaka-Chan Featured By Owner Apr 24, 2010  Student General Artist
Insane details! :clap: the background is also very beautiful and gives such a dynamic feel to the whole image. (:
FengatorMx6 Featured By Owner Apr 23, 2010  Student General Artist
I'd bet she's good with that spear.
Jadeonar Featured By Owner Mar 20, 2010  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I fav'd this a few days ago, just didn't have time to leave a comment.

I really like the white tribal patterns on her fur. She's elegant in her stance. Her somewhat worn but still functional atire looks good on her. The spear and feathers are a nice touch.

You have very good art.

I love the colour in this piece. Wonderful job with painting the distance and the lovely orange+blue contrasting colours between the sky and her fur :lol:

Can't go too far wrong with tribal girls in fur bikinis....Love the pose. And the background...
xGhOsTx334 Featured By Owner Jan 9, 2010
This picture is among one of the best furries I've ever seen... Allow me to rant for a sec? First of all, the proportions are perfect, the head's not too big or anything like that. Secondly, I love foxes and furries (and tribal tattoos/designs), so a nice little thumbs up there :meow: lastly, the background, and the way she's posed are simply over the top details. GREAT WORK!! I LOVE IT! :dummy:
