Cernunnos by shiverz Cernunnos by shiverz
A piece thats been in the works for sometime, since I've been on a hoofed spree as recent. Draenei, satyr, you name it!

I must have pencilled this out atleast two months ago, began the colour about two weeks ago and now finally finished it today.

The funny story is as I finished today my sibling, :iconsyxx:, informed me it was Beltaine (A Pagan festival). One of the main Gods is Cernunnos, the Horned God, who is the representation of animals and fertility. Who "lies down in ecstasy with the Goddess". I thought this was amazing, as it seemed pretty coincidental I finished this on this blessed day.

So, although I myself am not Pagan, I wish you all a Blessed Beltaine! ^____^

I enjoy the tonal work and the atmosphere youve created most. Something youre definitely getting better at with every background you create. The Universe will approves!

Glowing 'shrooms! So up my alley you're banging the bin lids. Also loving his horns, so regal and elegant. This is one posh satyr/manifestation of Cernunnos!

I adore more regal look horns, like they represent the power or stature of the creature ^___^

Schmanks for the compliments dude!

Gorgeous, addictive colours that are just so relaxing to look at! Maybe you are in tune with nature to actually finish this on the festival day. :D Great stuff! Very impressive! :nod:

I tried to go for colour tones that would seem more fluid than the usual forest setting, something of another realm? As odd as that sounds, you've hit it right on the button!

Thanks for the compliments dudette :glomp:

I hope you take no offence to this, but he kinda reminds me of the creatures in Avatar. The background and everything, how clam it looks, how beautiful. Either way, nice job :meow: I love how you did it

No offence at all, I was thinking more of Zangarmarsh from the World of Warcraft universe, which is arguably very like that of the 'Avatar' worlds. I take it as a compliment!

Thankyou so much for the lovely comments ^___^
