This is just magical!  Good luck on the exhibition and all other good things that may come as a result!  I love the green!

This reminds me of the night appearance of Spirit of the Forest from "Princess Mononoke". Was it one of your inspirations?

To my absolute shame, I've never seen Princess Mononoke- so this wasn't a direct inspiration. But I love Ghibli in general so Miyazaki's influence creeps into my art often :D Thanks dear! :heart:

oooh this looks really cool! 

Great way of controlling the colors, as watercolor is really hard to work with. Props!

Nice concept! Ironically it looks like a cat haha, the last animal I'd think of.

Nice fatastical work with those stripes that flow off into the pool and the light that shines from the pool makes it even more beautiful. I really like this stile of coloration.
