Taste the Rainbow by blix-it Taste the Rainbow by blix-it
Something completely different .... I did this for my childrens' picture book class. >< Her name is Shirahime and she's a winter spirit.

I hope this turned out well. =___=;;;; burrr. Besides the doodle comics in my sketchblog, this is the first time I've done an illustration almost entirely in photoshop. Next up ~ probably Autumn, which will be more complex. x___x

Lawl. I forgot to comment on the picture. The moose took over my mind.

I think this is absolutely adorable. You said it's for a class? There's actually a children's picture book class at your college? Geez ... you weird Georgians. :p

But really, this is lovely. The character is adorable, and a great rendition of a winter spirit. And I like how you took a contemporary style to the aurora instead of painting it in a "realistic" way. Have you formulated the story yet? Are you and your classmates actually going to get the books bound when they're complete? I've always considered writing and illustrating a children's book, but haven't come up with a good enough story (not to mention my self confidence is uber low when it comes to the illustration part >_<;). I'm excited to see more of this project. Will you continue to post the artwork, and maybe the finished product at the end? :)

Well DUH, moose are freaking awesome. They're like ... one of the coolest animals on the face of the planet. Besides raccoons.

But even so, I would take the chance to see the aurora if it was offered :p Lucky.

No worries your awesome, I was at Montgomery that entire day working too. So much to do, and so little time. I did not get back till really late that night. We will just have to hang out at another time. Maybe this spring break if you are free!?

Shirahime? Does she steal the souls of men? She totally should, on account of her cuteness.

I saw the aurora once when I was a kid living in Vermont, and I too only thought it was just somewhat interesting! Kids - they are stupid.

She steals the souls of little girls. XD They follow her up the staircase to the sky, the fly around, and then before the sun rises, they float back down to bed. :3 Or some other cute nonsense.

lol, I don't think children have the same concept of beauty as the rest of us. XD I recall finally realizing the specialness of AK when we were LEAVING. That's when I wanted a camera. =___=;

So she's a borrower of souls? That doesn't quite carry the menacingness of stealer or destroyer of souls.
