Fossegrimen by Bluari Fossegrimen by Bluari
www.youtube.com/watch?v=46WW3D…

Image I made for scandinavian furry convention NordicFuzzCon for 2015. The theme will be Scandinavian Folklore: The Enchanted Forest. I am so there C:. The image was featured on a flyer being distributed on this year's con, along with :icondoodlepad:'s work, which is such a contrast to mine X3. Everytime I look at it I think O M G LAY OFF THE COLOURS, DAMN IT, but it was supposed to be all green and fairytale-ish and I only forgot pollen floating in the air.

Creature I picked is Fossegrimen. It lives in waterfalls and plays the fiddle flawlessly, which I changed to harp, because it's one of my favourite instruments.

I think it's the most complicated image I did so far. And I did the colouring in around a week 83. Excluding composition and idea sketches, there was like three different ideas, with different species.

I'm so glad I could be a part of this project ^^
Original will be at the Artshow next year.

Fossegrimen by Bluari is a beautiful traditional piece exploding with rich, vibrant colors. The earthen hues reach out of this painting and touches our most serene thoughts. If only we could hear the beautiful song being played! To allow it to physically reach our ears, as this piece touches our hearts. ( Suggested by teiirka and Featured by KovoWolf )

Hello, I am but I have quite long waiting list at the moment.
Anyway, prices for full colour starts from 90 euros, in express pace I can make it even in a week, two. But right now I have 6 people in queue already, so you would have to wait.

That's fine. I am in no hurry. I was actually canvassing anyway. The project work would need to start in around 3-4 months from now. Would that be acceptable?

Wow, just...wow! That background is simply breathtaking! It feels like it has such an incredible depth and so much detail through the wonderful foliage texture you created.
And that sure is a kind of anthro you don't see a lot. ^^
