Dancing in the Dark by KaceyM Dancing in the Dark by KaceyM
Krinele the dreamspinner dancing in her bedroom, in the 1980's...

Krinele's fur is normally silver all over, but as you can see, under blacklight, specific markings fluoresce...

Krinele and Dreamspinners are copyright Databank.

The artwork is done with micron inks, acrylic paints, and just a touch of tria markers on 9"x12" illustration board.

Are you old enough to remember the eighties, dear Kacey? You captured the feeling fantastically. Fav+ for sure.

I can remember the mid-late 80s pretty well ^.^... and thanks!

And tails are easy... if theres anything I've had lots of practice rendering, its fur ^.^

She's such an '80's vixen! Love her dance moves and this darkened room shining with glow-in-the-dark memorabilia! This really is a "freakshow on the dance floor"! :D

it would take a hell of a time actually dancing with her, you'd have to dodge tails and keep to the rythm at the same time!

Very beautiful, I like your choice of colors because they make it obviously dark in the room without drowning the picture itself in too much dark value. I also like how you've done your lighting, there isn't a superfuzzy line between what's lit and what's in shadow.

How does she not trip over all those tails? :confused:

This really puts a big smile on my face! The legwarmers and Flashdance/Rubik's Cube posters are so perfect and really add to the 80's nostalgia. I'm a 90's kid, but they still are great. ;) Plus, her pose is just adorable, and the details look fantastic. Excellent work! :+fav:
