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.

TehLemon (Level 1 Rookie) @ 3/16/2009 11:10

Beautiful! The colors!

buloght (Level 6 Centaur) @ 9/20/2006 01:16
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.

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.

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.

Pieface (Level 3 Sergeant) @ 9/19/2006 08:45

Doppleganger (Level 6 Yonkyu) @ 9/15/2006 21:52
Fabulous, it really brings you into the mystical magical place that it is.

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!!!

Atooi (Level 5 Soldier) @ 9/15/2006 13:52
Wonderful. Very magical.

-DE- (Level 11 General) @ 9/15/2006 13:37

rats (Level 1 Gangster) @ 9/15/2006 12:27
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.

Blick (Level 7 Captain) @ 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.

fil_razorback (Level 5 Lieutenant) @ 9/15/2006 10:10
As expected, 7/7 and fav =)

Badassbill (Level 11 Big Foot) @ 9/15/2006 10:07

Thanks for the comments guys :).

Dark Rogue (Level 5 Rokkyu) @ 9/15/2006 05:07
I love how you limit your colors and how original your design is. This is awesome, 6/6 + fav.

thor (Level 1 Depressed) @ 9/15/2006 04:58
A perfect palette. Amazing work!

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.

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.

glassy glaze (Level 3 Corporate Drone) @ 9/15/2006 02:13
speechless... 5/5 +fav!!!

d-p (Level 11 Psychopath) @ 9/15/2006 01:52
