Springtime in the Starfall mountains; The snow is melting, leaves and flowers are sprouting, and the ryuu-nekos are at play.
This is another commission for Makoto and Sapphire from our recent (2008-2009) run of commissioning. It was a lot of fun being able to work with one of the settings from the Dreamkeepers books, much less the ‘nekos. In fact, I don’t think I’ve ever had the time to sit down and do a real ryuu-neko illustration before, with interactions and backgrounds. Everything previously was basically just finished concept work for reference, so this commission was really a treat to work with.
