Hare and sprite by Ironshod Hare and sprite by Ironshod
I recently painted this as part of the range of artworks I have created with the theme of the Enchanted Forest. It will be used in a set of fantasy style birthday cards that are due to be published in the next couple of months.

Here two unusual friends celebrate a special day together :)

A big thank you to model `Elandria for the use of her photograph as reference for this artwork. My apologies to Lanny for painting her small and green ;)

I LOVE that rabbit, as well as that sprite. I didn't notice the sprite at first, but now that I did, I love her!

Your colors in this piece are AMAZING, and I love how you painted the rabbit's fur. It looks so lifelike.

Wow the bunny is so life like. and they are both so cute, but not so sure they are quite interacting with each other. I mean it kind of looks like they are touching, but are they really interacting with each other?

I love the fur on the rabbit. You have great skill with detail and texture. And the hare looks like it's smirking too, like it doesn't mind having a little woman hug it. It's cute

The texture of the rabbit is stunning, it makes me want to pet it. And I like that the sprite is green, she looks less 'human' that way. And yay for atmospheric perspective! =D

Seriously, when I saw the thumbnail my first thought was, "Aww what a cute bunny but since when does she do photography...?" and then I noticed the sprite and was like, "HOLY SH-nananana....it's a painting. ;_; " Soo good like always. *energetic thumbs up*
