woodland holiday by saeqlopur woodland holiday by saeqlopur
Mjuka and Ilirium have much in common. they are quiet, calm, peaceful - yet only rarely would favour the company of other beings over a reassuring solitude.

in the depth of winter during Mjuka's spiritual exploration as an Esk, she comes across Ilirium sitting atop a cliff, gazing across the landscape. Mjuka climbs slowly toward them, gradually becoming more aware of their massive size. careful, though feeling bold, she slips beneath Ilirium and sits quietly, gazing up at them with reverence. together, they share a peaceful moment in their biome, taking in the faint celebrations of mankind from a safe distance.

happy holidays :iconblazingblackmage: - you're my eskmas exchange buddy! I hope you have a lovely holiday season.

Oooh my gosh, this put the hugest smile on my face when I saw it! ;o;
This is absolutely gorgeous! I love the perspective of them looking down upon the festivities from a distance, and the soft brushstrokes in the background, especially on the trees and grass, really bring the background to life. I especially like the colors in the sky the closer it gets to the horizon, it's a really pretty touch that really adds that extra layer of atmosphere. Ilirium and Mjuka look amazing, I just love all the attention to detail in the fur and in their faces. <3 

I absolutely love the idea of them watching the people below, the story is wonderful and being able to see Ilirium interact with other Esk always warms my heart. I keep coming back to admire it and re-read the little story and I couldn't be happier, it just fills me with such a feeling of happiness and comfort, much like the feelings I get around the holidays this time of year. I could go on and on about how much I adore this. 

Thank you so much, you really made my first Eskchange something special and I hope you have a fantastic holiday season! <3 :hug:
