Pixie's Early Morning Respite by Following-The-Rabbit Pixie's Early Morning Respite by Following-The-Rabbit
My entry for :iconmagiiipoo:'s "Things we love" contest.
OC Contest: Things We Love [OPEN]
All entries: https://magiiipoo.deviantart.com/favourites/55591421
Yes, its that time again - contest time! I think holding contests is a new hobby of mine. Or an obsession xD
This time there are some really great prizes, and I'll keep adding to them! I'm very excited with this theme and expect to see some really awesome entries. It's going to be great fun! Read on for all the important information c:  


The Basics: To sum everything up, here are the basics. You need to draw, in pixel, digital or traditional art, a picture of either my OC Pixie or my OC Teal doing something or with something they love. YOU MAY NOT DRAW THEM TOGETHER. CHOOSE ONE - PIXIE OR TEAL - AND DRAW JUST HER. The deadline is August 14th and prizes included 500 :points: for first place and loads of art. Don't forget to read - and follow - the rules! 
Deadline: 14 August


I usually don't like to enter contests unless I have a good idea for what to do. I just got really inspired when I read Pixie's character info, I guess. Besides, she's pretty cute to begin with.
I also tried to include as many things she likes as I could, while still making sense in the picture; Fruit (the apples in the tree, and in her bag~), playing her flute, tree-climbing (I assume she climbed into that tree), waterfalls, earrings, waking up early (Hence the sunrise), and exploring. I guess some of those are more, "Eh, technically I included them", but hey, you can't say I didn't try. I was going to include squirrels, too, but I can't draw them very well. Nor did they go well with the composition. Oh, well.

That's supposed to be a mountainscape... but the tree covers half of it. Uggghhh. It looks so nice without the tree...

I hope I did an okay job. Wish me luck in the contest, everyone!

I should go to bed now...

Greetings, everyone who was passing by when suddenly found yourself looking at this piece in a speechless manner.

The things i`m about to say are nothing new to you for you may be feeling the same way. These`re just thankful words to the artist for creating such an interesting artwork.

What strikes me most is coloring through which the artist`s impressive skills are seen. I can`t but keep absorbing softness and color fluffiness with my eyes :)

Without any doubt i`d give 4.5 out of 5 for originality mainly because the whole concept is quite unique. For instance, apples in the basket, that amazing waterfall along with the mountain range, darkening forest - pretty much everything adds deep contrast and complexity apart from the fact that the girl herself is the main natural beauty ^^ In my personal opinion, the tree covering a mountainscape fits perfectly! It reminds me of some kind of a home-like shelter providing a stranger with food, calmness and care. Speaking of squirrels, they`re not meant for this piece. Solitude is the reason this work is so touching!

Needless to say, the entire atmosphere is making me sleepy as if it`s inviting to the dream filled with melodic flute sounds. The artist`s approach appeals to me ^_^

Thank you! This is what happens when someone follows the "rabbit"!
