Kitsune- full color by spyra Kitsune- full color by spyra
I've spent so many hours on this lately, and it's the first week of school too... But in case you didn't catch the SUBTLE theme, she's supposed to dressed up as a fox- like kitsune, the fox spirit. (really- a lot of people didnt catch that DX) Her tail was meant to be a huge train ribbony thing, and the corners of her bandana make up her ears. (do you seeee it now? XD)

I had this theme idea in my head for a really long time, so I just HAD to make it happen. I was incredibly anal about getting the colors and details down which makes me think I spent way too much time on this pic. ^_^; The background still probably has some kinks to work out, so maybe I'll fix those later. Or not (says the lazy spyra). :D I think her tail turned out nicely (it'd better have! XP) and I really like the overall vibrant theme. The most difficult part of this drawing was the background; I wanted something that complimented the subject, but wasnt so bright that it takes away from the foreground, or so dark that it hides her skirt, tail, ears, or gloves. It was really difficult coming up with something perfect, because the solid colors I started out with killed the overall composition of the picture. The current one was the best thing I came up with...

I am using this image to enter the cover contest for our annual comic anthology baau down, fourth edition. When I finish the entire cover, I will post it again, with the entire layout design and whatnot. And since I have kicked my modesty out the door, I would like to say that I really hope to win and I hope this picture really is as good of a cover illust as I think, so any constructive critiques would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance! ^__^ <3

I love how the tail was made, it looks like fish fins or flower petals.

I seriously thought this was an anthro piece when I saw it in the teeny tiny thumbnail in someone's favorites. But you made the clothing seem like parts of an animal, which is really interesting. I love your color choice, and I love the expression. The values and shading is also amazing. Very well done.
