Driftwood by caroro Driftwood by caroro
A very very very long overdue commission for `ShePaintsWithBlood. It so overdue that I'm too embarrassed to admit how long it's been put off... :dead:

She asked me to paint her a Knote, which is a creature she created. Well, I was given SO MUCH artistic freedom I struggled to come up with a concept to paint. I decided to just... go with it; which is an idea I have another friend to thank for.

I decided to paint one of my ultimate desires: I want to go to the beach. I love the beach, especially when it's about to rain and it's especially windy. So.. that's what I painted! :)

I also wanted the Knote to blend in with its surroundings thoroughly without being completely hidden. He's not supposed to be the first thing you notice, so for all you design majors out there, don't fret!


Besides all that... I hope you like it Aria! :hug: Forgive me for the delay! I do love you so much for being patient :heart:

I love the atmosphere in this you really captured it well with the colors and general feeling. It's really whimsical but serene... Somehow surreal.

wow, this is great!
It's so awesome I can barely describe its awesomeness.

I like the colors, and how they all sort of go together, and I like the idea of having the knote blend in but still be visible.
And the scenery is beautiful!

Oh! He is beautiful. I really love it!! It is really neat to sea a Knote at the ocean too. I have sketched ocean based Knotes before but never finished. I love the fluffy fur which is so detailed and I like how it covers the majority of the face. The muzzle is great and you really did an accurate job with it. I love the seashells hidden in the fur as well and the details of the sea grass and the wonderful little birds too. I also like how gray this is. I am not one for tropical beaches, I prefer the cold gray ones I think because I was born by one and so I am glad that is how this one turned out too! I love it when people take Knotes and portray them accurately and you did just that by blending him/her into its surroundings and making it a part of them even. Thank you so much, Caroro I love it!!!:blackrose:

Is it a llama?

it was greatly inspired by a llama :giggle: but, it still remains to be a "knote". It has horns instead of ears, no eyes, and no hind feet. That's basically what it boils down to
