Child of the Forest (Autumn) by Nashimus Child of the Forest (Autumn) by Nashimus
"Metsän Lapsi (Syksy)"

Music to go along with it, one of my all time favorite Moomin tunes: www.youtube.com/watch?v=I-WOl-…

I decided to paint a portrait of my favorite forest child/lost child/orphan from Moomins. He's adorable! >w<
He's supposed to be sitting on daddy's Snufkin's hat but I guess I mixed up green and red. Now it looks like Joxter's hat, but I really think the red hat looks better than a green one would have. :nod:

There are... Something like 6-8 orphans in the Moomin cartoon and a whopping 24 in the books, and I do sorta feel like I should make more of these. But if I do, I'm going to go with the seasons and make one for each, that way I would only have to make 3 more and I could also keep choosing my favorites instead of drawing them all. But as my projects usually go, this might end up being the only one. ^^;

Made with watercolors (and mechanical pencil for the outlines).

I've really been enjoying painting now that I've found paper that's thick enough. :aww:

Thanks!
Oh, I tried to go realistic (sorta) with the flowers, we have these similar ones in Finland: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Geranium…
I drew inspiration from those. :)

Tää on ihana! Neko Emoji-37 (Yay) [V2] Muumeissa onkin paljon söpöjä sivuhahmoja, jotka eivät pääse hirveästi parrasvaloihin. Kiva että toit ainakin yhden lutusen julki. Neko Emoji-27 (Being kawaii) [V2]

Täysin sivumainintana sanon, että kannattaa käydä kattomassa se uusi Muumi-elokuva. La la la la Se perustuu enemmän alkuperäisiin sarjakuviin kuin anime-versio muumeista ja oli mun mielestä hauskaa katsottavaa myös aikuisille. Meow :3

Kiitos! :aww:

Heh, mistäs päättelet etten ole jo nähnyt sitä? ;)
Noh, en kyllä olekaan. XD;;
Tarkoitus on mennä katsomaan kunhan selviää taas milloin on seuraavat esitykset, pikkukaupungin elokuvateatterissa sitä ei ihan joka päivä näytetäkkään.

No, minä vain arvasin, kun leffa tuli vasta äskettäin elokuviin. Meow :3 Itse näin sen ihan sattumalta melkein heti, kun se ilmestyi.
