The Flowing: Creatures are called 'the flowing'. When they make the journey before the bad season, they travel towards the homes in the trees. From above, it looks like a river of water flowing, as the moonlight reflects from the creatures' fur.

Bad Season: Stronger hunter type creatures emerge from their slumber and hunt accross the grasslands. They do not enter the forests where the trees protect those not of ill will.

The world is no way an attempt at realism, but a fantasy setting.

Thanks to big brother, jalonso and larwick for crit and suggestions

My, this is handsome!  Lots to take away from the piece in terms of lessons in color ramping.  Not sure why I missed this one for so long.

Thanks for the comments and favs guys . I didn't use ref when drawing this since I wanted an uninluenced setting, but if it looks like something there is nothing I can do haha. Thanks again guys.

user
calacver (Level 1 Rookie) @ 9/20/2006 01:08
Haha, you just made me google them, I have to disagree, apart from long snouts shaped differently. But I guess the snouts is the reminder. Anyways this is awesome work buloght. Fav.

user
milkyjon (Level 4 Murderer) @ 9/19/2006 19:10
The wolves remind me of the critter from ice age. Nice piece..must have taken you ages. I especially like the twirleyness of the branches and the creatures aswell as colour choice. well done.

Fabulous, it really brings you into the mystical magical place that it is.

user
Darth Mandarb (Level 10 Operative) @ 9/15/2006 21:07
Great stuff!  I really like the way you weave the story into the image.

I love the contrast between all the details in the foreground, and the limited details of the mountains/sky.  Gives it the "fantasy" setting you were aimin' for!

More more more!!!

An amazing scene. The mood and magical feel is just awesome, and the little guy in the front even looks a little scared. Great composition too. Fav.

user
Blick (Level 6 Commander) @ 9/15/2006 11:19
In some spots it takes a while for me to tell what's going on with the shapes because the same colors are used on everything, but it's still really nice work. I really like the contrast between the strong highlights and deep shadows on the fur.

user

A perfect palette. Amazing work!

user
robotriot (Level 4 Shichikyu) @ 9/15/2006 04:43
I think the bark on the tree should be less segmented (branches look like they're stuck/glued to it), but otherwise this piece got a great atmosphere and I like both the palette and the low colour count.

user
ManningKrull (Level 9 Executioner) @ 9/15/2006 03:26
This is really a beautiful piece, both the pixelling itself and the composition and colors and mood.

Saboteur (Level 4 Shichikyu) @ 9/15/2006 01:07

Yeah, totally a fave. It took me a while to realise that the things protruding in front of them was not their arm, but was their trunk, or nose, or somethin. I almost prefer seeing it incorrectly, 'cause the arm-in-front gave this whole millitial appeal to things, and makes it seem as if they're pointing toward where they're going, almost as a self-reminder or built-in compass.

Nonetheless, it is truly an awesome piece, and a joy to look at.
