Sings-to-Trees: Animal Therapy by ursulav Sings-to-Trees: Animal Therapy by ursulav
Confident of a sympathetic ear, a cup of peppermint tea, and possibly some organic oatmeal cookies, disgruntled local wildlife would often visit Sings-to-Trees's farm to sulk.


This was just a quick little sketchbook doodle that I wound up coloring. The bewildered eco-elf of the dodochicken painting was just too entertaining a character to leave completely alone, and he wound up counselling an irritable iguana. Not high art, but it kept me amused for a few minutes, anyway.

I love Sings-To-Trees. I wish I'd come up with him. Are you ever going to do anything else with him?

Aww...Love the coloring on this one!

I love him!!! (The expression on the iguana's face is priceless.) Poor Sings-To-Trees, but I'm sure he doesn't mind. Best iguana I've seen in forever!

So cute, both of them!

Iguanna? They seem to be cranky no matter what, I've found... but Sings To Trees looks very patient :)
Love the art!

I have to say this is my favorite picture of Sings-To-Trees- probably just because of the simplicity. There's none of that haunting elvish sadness, so much as a farmer who's doing what farmers do- they work and they listen. He isn't exotic, he's dressed in clothes I could pull from my grandfather's closet, and he just looks so...

Comfortable. Very comfortable.
PockyPuck Featured By Owner Oct 11, 2006
I really, really love that iguana.

I want to take him home.
PigeonCrowz Featured By Owner Sep 12, 2006
Aww! Cute!

Sings-to-Trees is looking wonderful, as always. :)
ZiulEdaj Featured By Owner Jul 26, 2006
I love all of your artwork, but this is especially adorabl eto me, I don't know why. Maybe because I'm trying to think of all the things that an iguana would need couseling for.
imOFAN Featured By Owner Jul 21, 2006
Aww, that's adorable! :giggle: :+fav:

I unashamedly admit that this picture was my desktop for a good while, and I think it's still one of my favorites. Since I first saw it on your website, and after I finally got over the "wow" oggling stage (...which took a while), I discovered that one of the things I like most about it -after the concept- is the ground. The rock, too, but the ground first.
And that would be because it seems that the white background is fading in just as much as the ground is fading out. ...I rather hope that that makes some semblence of sense, as I honestly can't think of a better way to phrase it that doesn't involve pointing accompanied by monosyllabic noises of admiration. Both of which are nearly useless over great, grand things like the internet.

Is there a comic strip in the pipe-line? There are so many funny stories that you could build around this character
SpearFox Featured By Owner Sep 14, 2005
This is just too cute. :D The expressions on their faces, and that iguana.

Maybe the iguana feels bad because she's not as pretty as the girls in magazines!
Awesome stuff btw :+devwatch: :D
Myalani Featured By Owner Sep 13, 2005
I'm taking a liking to Sings-to-Trees. It takes a special kind of person to help the not-so-gifted, like foulsmelling dodos and trolls and unmagical wildlife. Especially when there are so many more "pleasant" creatures to help out there, that will give you better publicity perhaps. There should be more people like Sings-to-Trees in the world. Perhaps it would be a better place. :o)
rogue-rpz Featured By Owner Sep 13, 2005
i wonder what issues an iguana could have
109cita Featured By Owner Sep 13, 2005  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
Maybe his cousin, the gekko, stole his claim to fame.
Maybe she's PMSing and depressed about food chain issues.
Maybe he feels inadequite because he has no hat.
Perhaps she has multiple personalites. . .
"Am I an amphibian or a reptile? Some times I just don't know!"
You never know with iguanas.
It could be just about anything.
Maneki-Neko Featured By Owner Sep 12, 2005

The cutest idea I've seen from you ever, an elven animal psychiatrist.

staticgirl Featured By Owner Sep 12, 2005  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Quite possibly the best anthro-art I have yet seen on this site! I love the expression on the iguana's face. He must have had his lunch stolen by a Gila Lizard.
emptybook Featured By Owner Sep 12, 2005  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Aw, I love this Sings to Trees, he's such a sweetie. He also has cool hair :D

As an embarrassing side note, first time I saw your pictures of this guy, I thought it was fanart of mourns-for-trees from Torment :$ Then my brain started working.
Sapphire911 Featured By Owner Sep 11, 2005
I like this. The coloring is a nice change. Very well done.
Redmagesalyre Featured By Owner Sep 11, 2005

So cute, the expressions are wonderful.
twiligne Featured By Owner Sep 11, 2005
please don't let go of sings-to-trees, he's the most heartwarming character i had the pleasure of laying eyes on lately.
the curling of his toes in his sandals is a very nice, fine detail. most people do tend to curl their toes like that when they're wearing sandals.
Eleithel Featured By Owner Sep 11, 2005  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
really cute, the expressions are lovely ! :D
Ebrel Featured By Owner Sep 10, 2005
Disgruntled animals lol. That is great. You couldn't have captured it better with that expression on the lizard. I love how your stuff has little stories to go along. = ]
