Following Frith by Mokinzi Following Frith by Mokinzi
This piece was in part inspired by Richard Adams' novel Watership Down, in which Frith is the sun god in the rabbit mythology. Apart from that, this is once again my own creatures, running through the forest of my imagination.

This piece started out traditionally, with a variety of thin-pointed pens upon a fine calligraphy paper. I then rendered the piece digitally in Photoshop with my Wacom tablet. All textures applied are my own.

It all turned out to be rather experimental, and I cannot say if I am completely happy with it or not. At least, I hope you like it! :heart:

It's amazing how you've created texture and hard edges, yet there's a soft quality to everything. This is the type of picture I wouldn't be surprised to see in a storybook. (Heck, it's way better than most illustrations that come to mind.) Even if you aren't sure whether it turned out the way you liked it, I think this drawing is lovely ♥

(And I can definitely see how this was inspired by Watership Down. Out of curiosity, have you ever seen the movie adaptation? 'Cause the swirls on some of the creatures remind me of the animation style for the opening creation-story.)

Thank you so, so much! Your kind words are deeply appreciated. :heart:

I have seen the film adaptation, yes, and I think it is a masterpiece! I find it horrible how so few of the people I have met have not even heard of the novel nor the film. However, I started drawing swirls on animals long before I saw the film. It all started with horses, actually. Eventually the swirls have just become a part of my personal drawing style. However, I was indeed very inspired when I saw the opening part of the film, and it is very possible that it has influenced me without me thinking about it. :meow:

You're welcome! c:

It bums me out, too- even if the film was a little traumatizing when I was little, in hindsight, it was also really cool. That goes for the book as well.

And okay, I see! I guess I sometimes forget that some things just happen sorta spontaneously--and when I look at your gallery, I can definitely see that the swirls are a persisten stylistic element. Thanks for elaborating~
