Casidhe Badge by balaa Casidhe Badge by balaa
A long overdue gift for the kind ~wailingwolf of his arctic fox character Casidhe. I just enjoyed painting her, the whole painting kinda circled around her soft gentle smile.

Wow... I epically fail at not checking DA and not faving this when you first posted this.

*hugs tight* I still can't thank you enough such a beautiful representation of her/myself. I have her as a framed print on the wall next to my desk and I've looked at her almost everyday since you first presented her to me almost two years ago...

Wow... Time has flown by... My hair is probably as long as her's is as depicted in the picture.

I definitely need to catch up with you again... It's been a long time.

it certainly has been a long time! I am truly honored that you like it as much as you do..some pieces just flow out of my heart and fingers..and that was one of them. I certainly don't think it coincidental that it was a piece for a wonderful person *smiles and snugs*. I hope to catch you at FC! Or at Califur, if you are planning to attend ^_^.

*hugs tight* I'll be at FC as always... But before then AC in a month. No Califur for me unfortunately (as it would cut into my AC budget). Gas prices are a little too high for my liking and the drive is not my cup of tea.

You're so awesome hun. Will you be at AC this year?

unfortunately I just don't have the resources to make it to AC this year! But I am planning on it next year ^_^. I think I also need a break from that con..my last two years were just more bad than good....so taking a deep breath before I try again, if you will! I look forward to seeing you at FC then ^__^.

Wow, she looks amazing. The smile is gentle, like it easily comes to her. The eyes really stand out, and she looks almost teasing... like, 'I know something that you don't.' And I absolutely LOVE the addition of the paw. Awesome. I can just see her saying something like, 'Follow me.' Beautiful. Well worth the effort (and a lot of it, I can see) that you put in!

I beleive that this is my personal favorite of all the badges I have seen so far. The fuzzyness of the fur make me want to feel it. The painting really does circle around her smile. :)

So very amazing, I hardly know what to comment on! Perhaps my favorite part is how the snowflakes rest on top of the fur.

It's the furry version of the Mona Lisa... Lucky Wailingwolf!
I'd put something like this on my frontpage, and you put it into your scraps. Says something about the work in your gallery, and is the reason why I always watch peoples' scraps as well. I think those are the most intersting, to be honest :)

This looks gorgeous, as always, Balaa. :) I love the feel that you've managed to convey here through colors. It looks so icy cold, yet there's still just a hint of warmth because of the slight yellow in her fur and the soft smile on her face. Great work!

This is beautiful. I love the smile, and the eyes are fantastic. You've done a great job with the snow. It's obvious but not overwhelming. The font for her name is awesome, did you edit that or did it come with snow all over it?

Those eyes go so very well together with the smile, which I can tell you spent a lot of time on ;D The eyes seem to keep many secrets from the world, not horrible ones, but ones that are private. Memories could also be found in them, happy ones, or she would never carry that expression ^^*
I love how the background is snowstorm-ish. The fur on her cheeks seems to be affected by the winds. It makes her even more real in the eyes of the viewer, making one admire your skills even more ^^*
I wish for you to smile with the same happiness this fall n___n***
