Magic Forest by Yakra Magic Forest by Yakra
I be running out of ideas on the moon... >_>' *wail!*

Medium: Gouache and silver leaf on wasli
Time: 3 weeks?

Aaaah... this is such a silly painting that I don't even have anything to say about it.

Back when I was a kiddie, there was this book I used to obsess over (Book of Fairies!) and since I was a stupid little kid, I used to check under every toadstool every morning for any sign of fairies. It talked about thread markets of fairies, houses in trees and ofcourse, magical trains! :D And sooo..... *sticks all that in this painting!*

Add to that obsessing over the more recent evil forest in FFIX and Xenogears...

Em... this is probably meh first painting ever in which the main charries isn't human-oid-ish? :O_o:

Yes, I realize the forest looks nothing like night time. ^^; *gets shot*

(Can you guess which one of Lul's puppets this is? [Peh... they all look alike! >_<] )

Other silly moon paintings:

[The catagories have chaged again?!? Am I putting this in the right gallery? And why is the description declaring that I'm submitting something anthro? :O Wai?!]

The colors are so gorgeous and everything so adorable! :love: I especially like the little dragonflies and the catlike being peering into the water-filled stump...so many things to look at!

I like your long explanations. :) I like to know what the artist is thinking, plus it helps to know I'm not the only one with long explanations! ^^;

I'm glad someone enjoys meh loooong boring explainations! :D Thank you! Thank you! It's sometimes very irritating when people don't read what one bothers to write down and then ask the most silliest questions. (But then... I blame myself for writing too much and boring everyone! ^^; )

I'm really glad you like it!

Maybe its the weather that is instilling all this magic obsession? I've been obsessed with such stuff too lately! X'D

By the way, I still owe you a kiriban piccy! Are you still ok with anything cute? Or did you decide on something else and more specific?

Yakra Featured By Owner Jun 27, 2007  Professional General Artist
Oh yes! I never got to actually watch it, but I got sooooooooo obsessed with it thanks to the games. (Heh... is that even possible? To get obsessed with something you've never seen? ^^; )

It's funny you should mention it. I'm quite .hack obsessed once more these days!

:iconarashi-yukawa:
arashi-yukawa Featured By Owner Jun 28, 2007
lol! I know, I was obsessed even before watching it thanks to the music XD

wow... I wonder what is it with the weather? XD can I request Aura, or Macha, please? :giggle:
Reply
:iconyakra:
Yakra Featured By Owner Jul 1, 2007  Professional General Artist
I think it was the music with me too. XD

Sure! That sounds nice! ^_^ I'll probably make Aura though, since the version of Macha I'm used to is so unlike the cute little hat wearing one in .hack//sign.

(But I'd like to make Macha (and Elk... ) too... *can't decide* )

arashi-yukawa Featured By Owner Jul 1, 2007
the music is awesome :love: Yuki Kajiura is a great composer X3

yay! :D oh, is Macha in the games too? oh I see it's not the Macha in .hack//sign. Now I'm drooling for a ps2 :drool: too bad it would be too late to buy one nowthat ps3 is out :(

oh lord, and I still haven't written why I faved it in the first place. XD Sorry, I'm really confused these days. I can't seem to get my thoughts into an order that makes sense!! I just know this:
If there was a children's book with illustrations like this, I would not only buy it in an instant for my own kids, but buy 10 more copies to give it to other children on their birthdays. <33
then again, all of your pictures would make me buy the book they're printed in.

It's ok. I'm pretty much the same these days (the weather?) - I look at someone's work/comment, think about replying and then don't. >_< And then it all piles up (and I reply as I'm doing now! Wai!)

But thank you! That's really cheered me up, since I've been wondering all along whether anyone would want to buy this at all!

I had fits about the yellow! >_< I was incredibly unsure adding in such a bright color in a totally blue and purple painting. Once the yellow got applied on the gloves though, all the careful restraints I had put on mehself went off with the wind and orange and red flowers started cropping up! XD (And blue and purple went off to a corner and sulked. XDD)
