Subterranean Badger by Dreamkeepers Subterranean Badger by Dreamkeepers
Here we have a badger, North American style! I got to draw him in a cave, which allowed me to indulge in fantasies of spelunking prowess. It was a fun setting to work in, especially with the dim lighting generating a nice atmospheric effect. This is a good start, but I want to get better at illustrating cave settings. Real caverns are already furnished with luxurious formations, so using that as a springboard for fantasy illustrations should yield exceptionally fun results. The badger’s owner, Frycookie, can be found at: [link]

Daily Deviation

Given 2008-10-02
There are many things that make 'Subterranean Badger' by *Dreamkeepers DD worthy. These include, but are certainly not limited to, the attention to detail like the glittering, light reflecting rocks, the interesting use of light and shadows which creates fantastic colours and, of course, that incredible expression! The expression really shows the character that this guy has, I love it! ( Suggested by Neko-daewen and Featured by skifi )

*stares for a good five minutes*

I really like it. Everything in it. The expression on his face, the pose, his awesome gear and boots, that funky looking lantern, and the little sparkles of whatever around the cave. It all adds into the making of an awesome picture. And if you think you still need to improve your cave art, then I can't wait to see what else you have in store in the future 'cause I think that's one of the best cave scenes I've ever seen.

I can't wait to see more from you. Keep up the great art work!
