Sibilance

I had this strange, deep-seated desire to create something involving one of the seemingly random things that I really loved as a kid, the water wheel.

And, because I also love tigers, I made it into a little gift for =Enaxn (who was nice enough to gift me a subscription a while back) and =PearlEden of their characters Switchback (left) and Shizuhellig. Who needs enemies when you have really annoying friends?

For those too lazy to use google or a dictionary, sibilance is the use of hissing sounds (usually referred to as such in a literary sense, here I wound interpret it in the literal sense).

Yup. I like to use a lot of dream-like imagery... which is usually weird. :lol:

Awesome work ! How did you get it to look as if you actually painted it?

I have a two-part text tutorial on how I do these in my journal, starting here: [link] I hope that helps! Let me know if you have any questions. :)
fascinating setting

Well made. The patches on the feline are eye-catching, and because I personally LOVE felines, ten out of ten stars.

The water wheel is a beautifully-made thing, but random. I was surprised to see it, and the bottom of the blue tiger seems to blend in with the water. Not hard to see, though. It's beautiful.

Thank you! I love felines as well, especially tigers. Along with rats, they are my favourite animals. :D
