Tour D'Ivoire by c-t-elder Tour D'Ivoire by c-t-elder
"Our queen's back in her Ivory Tower?"
"Hey, leaver her to it. She's there when we need her, I think she deserves not to be when we don't."


Ginny's always the shoulder everyone asks to lean on. Being that kind of person, you need one of the two things to keep yourself sane - your own shoulder to lean against, or a quiet hideaway where you can curl up and somehow, somewhere, find the strength to stand up again and provide whatever it is the people around you need.

After the mess the past few weeks have been, I really, really needed to complete something, anything, just to prove myself I'm still alive. Obviously, there's internet access in the afterlife. Who knew.


/Signing off, before I turn philosophical.

Dunno, I always find drawing female anthros with human hairstyles strange, unless that animal has some sort of a mane by design and nature - horses, certain antelopes and such. Otherwise... well, when the commissioner asks for it, I have little choice, but I don't do it in my designs.

Well, I was hoping to achieve more "serene" than "cute" on the scale, but at least I got something right :)
Thanks!

Thank you. I found that cream-colored red pandas are very photogenic and seem serene, for some reason. They lack the slight mischievousness of the traditionally colored counterpart.

Never really thought about that-but now that I look at some red panda pics, I think you are right!  Perhaps because the more seen coloration is much more bolder (and common?) that the cream variation is viewed as the more tame of the two and provides a much more tranquil feel that the more seen red panda depictions do not show? Regardless in if my brain storm here makes any sense whatsoever, your piece is definable genuine in how much the figure seems so much at peace/in harmony with her surroundings :)

Red pandas are awesome. Thank you! But don't eat those grapes, she'd tear you apart.

I'm working for a wine producer, so I should tell you that you'll never see a vine standing like that without support ! :D

Other than that it's an amazing work !!!

I have to defer to your expertise here, since my experience with wine is zero, since I don't even drink it. I based it on some reference images of small bonsai-like potted wine bushes I found, which all had strong enough trunk to stand on their own. But as I say, no experience in that matter, so thanks for pointing that out. I'll sure keep a lookout next time I'm drawing Ginny's vineyard. :)

I don't want to sound like a killjoy you know ! ^^; That's just a little detail I wanted to point out, you really shouldn't matter.

Like I said, your art is great ! :nod:

There's nothing killjoy-ish (okay, I don't think that's even a word) about that, trust me! I'm always glad to learn something new :) And I do not require a monthly pat on the back, so there's absolutely nothing wrong with telling me I screwed up. I'll just take the extra patience to make it right next time :)

A word of advice - "as usual", that's not what you want to hear when you hope you're getting better.

Well there's definitely some improvement here. That's a difficult pose and angle to draw, but you pulled it off perfectly.
