An illustration I did for a fanzine I’m making with some friends from uni :) It’s meant to go along with a text about creatures named Gentlefeets that one of us wrote (not me);

“In the dead of the night, the Gentlefeets wonder around the earth. If you pay enough attention, you’ll see them hiding behind the moon and wearing the starry night as a cape. Most will confuse their round yellow eyes for stars, and their large fingers for the roots of a tree. There’s nothing to fear of them though, for they’re friendly and quiet creatures, and their favorite pastime is to watch humans sleep, making sure they tiptoe silently on earth to not wake anyone up, and slowly disappear as the first rays of sun show up.”

It’s done using Photoshop CS4 and a Wacom Intuos4.

I wasn't teasing, I found it funny, but I wasn't actually laughing at you. I know very well people have way better things than spend their time online; I wish it was my case as well. :bucktooth:

Thank you, you're always so kind :) I rarely go on dA these days, and when I do I usually just empty my message centre and leave again :D
