Starfall Spring Glade by Dreamkeepers Starfall Spring Glade by Dreamkeepers
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 Ďnekos. In fact, I donít think Iíve 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.

Makoto the silver-phase fox and Sapphire the blue-diamonded cat belong to their owners, and can be found at: [link] or [link]
They also make an appearance in Volume 2.

I like those two green ryuu-nekos playing together, and why are the trees filled with leaves?

No plush versions in the near future here - but after Volume 3 is done, I'm hoping we might be able to expand our merchandise offerings somehow, and plushies are one of my wish-list items. :)

Um.... I'm not sure. Perhaps it had an appointment. Probably I just forgot it - it was awhile ago, I don't remember if the exclusion was intentional. ^^;

Oh God, this picture is just absolutely stunning. The coloring, lighting, composition, just everything seems to work right.

The cute ryuu-nekos don't hurt, either :3
