I love this picture of both of them.
But I wonder...how can they support that many tails and also when they're so long and fluffy?
Maybe I'm not suppost to think about that. I'm going to have to look up "what is a kitsune".

Lovely, I particularly like the woodstove in the corner. My grandparents have one just like it and when I go there for the holidays I always draw it. :)

I'm always amazed at how much detail you put into these.. The frost on the windows, the holly on the boxes, the cookies.. <333 Just great~~~ And that kitty made my morning. xDD *Stealshim*

Whoa, lotsa tail. I forget, what's the criteria for earning tails and their length? If there is any?

I was under the impression that length implies age, but I'm not sure I wish to insult them by callin' 'em old. ^^;

Kacey, your paintings are amazing. I am forever left in awe of your skill.
Everything looks great. The mood, the lighting, the bushy tree, the frost on the windows, the stove, the wood floor, the boxes... all of it.

Point to fact that the tails are fuzzy and take more "presence" than the tree! :D

Lovely calmness, as christmas is :)

I wounder what took more time to draw - their tails or the remains of the picture. :D

Holding the crystal balls with one of the tails is a nice lil detail.

Levis looks sooo sweet *hugs* ^^

Very nice, but what is the thing about 5 tails? I have seen other artist draw it, but wonder where it comes from.

:iconkaceym:
KaceyM Featured By Owner Nov 20, 2007
The multiple tails is a trademark of their race - they are Dreamspinners, which is like a kitsune...

Kitsune accumulate more and more tails the older and more powerful they become..

Or, thats what I think. These particular characters have always had five tails when I've drawn them, though =)

Okay, thanks for the explanation :) An other one coming, who made them?

KaceyM Featured By Owner Nov 20, 2007
I believe Databank is responsible for creating the Dreamspinners, as well as the characters themselves.

Yup, to the best of my knowledge that is. Maybe someone surgically planted the idea in my mind while I was asleep but how would I know that... ;p
