Deep Drifts by vantid Deep Drifts by vantid
A tanuki/kistsune mixbreed named Sendiri falls slowly into deep clear water...for whatever reason. And for the same reason, cherry blossoms glow blue. Character design is Shadowolf's, image done for the Yerf trading post. SMASHED into Painter 7 for FULL FLAVOR.

Edit: Um...um....holy crap....I logged in and thought oh im gee...why are there so many messages in my inbox??? Oh...daily devaition...crap, and I've mispelled where I live! *facepalm* Thanks so much!

That is absolutely beautiful, I love the serene dreamy-like feel to it and the way you've done the water and that realistic fur! Definately worth the daily deviation imo! <3

Haha, I was looking at this and only until about two minutes after the initial staring did I realize the background was actually...-a background-. I thought it was just a swirl of random colors, but then saw the trees and the banks of the shore. VERY pretty. :)

I love this, even though it's pink (you've been forgiven for that, har, har). One thing that bugs me though, is the lack of reflection that the fox should create on the water below. Otherwise, though, this is fantastic.

It is quite beautiful indeed, however I would change one thing: His fur. If he were falling, his fur would be pushed backwards more from the wind pushing past him as he fell. With his fur static, in place, it looks as if he is merely suspended in air instead of falling. Other than that, it is absolutely captivating and glorious. Wonderful job!
