Dragonflies by kalicothekat Dragonflies by kalicothekat
Whee. Just a chibi baby Kalico (my calico cat-dragon fursona, for those of you who don't know me xD). It's almost Kalico's 3rd b-day! Aww, yay. Heh, she looks like some sort of mutated hamster or something here xD.

Yeah, I'll scrap this later =P. Just a doodle done during a study break. Oh how I hate exams x___x.

Oh, and Happy Hannukah to any fellow Jewish peeps out there 8D!

Photoshop CS2
Kalico and pic to me

i know shes almost 7 now but AWWWWWWWW!!! Her eyes and ear position are what really makes this picture adorable. I like how the fireflys almost look like they are just imagined by Kalico, there just so whispy.

This is just too adorable for words. I really love the ears. That is my favorite position for ears.

You have wonderful lines and shading for a doodle.

Learn how to draw? Hmmm....well, I've been drawing pretty much my whole life |D;. Try looking at the things around you; what inspires you, etc. Draw from life first--that's a MUST :). Try drawing portraits of your friends, if you want to draw people, or draw your pets or from photos if you want to draw animals :). The best way to learn is to just keep practicing :D.
And then, in drawing something cartoony like this...you just exaggerate certain features :D. Like here, I made her eyes big, her head huuuuge, tiny feet, and ears big as well. All those things make something seem more cute, because that's more the anatomy of a baby human or animal x3. So....yup! Just study, and it'll come naturally to you :D.
Hope that helps XD.

And adorable. <3 :aww:

This pic really has an escence and feel of fluffy cute things that are entertained by the simple things. It's really all so touching that something like this would come across me around THIS time in my life, when I am having problems and maturing and crap. It's a wonderful heart-lifter with such a great aura around it that I wish I could touch the dragonflies and pet your kitty-dragon hybrid. Very well done. Yes, :clap: I applaud you.

Waah! I typed a very long reply and it ate it! Why does dA always do that to me?!? TT..TT ... :ninja: ... Meh, nothing to get upset over. :shrug: I'll just retype it. :nod: ... 'cept, not so long-like...

Anywayz, you gave quite a warm reply. I wasn't expecting that from someone I didn't even know. :heart: It makes me feel special. <3

-peteth of Kalico- Doth she biteth? -lets dwagonfwies land on Shi- (my name is Shinta. Shi is a nickname.)
^..^
It was cool like this on my eigth birthday. Our entire yard was filled with butterflies and dragonflies, not one of them moving. Then I decided that cuz the whole world revolved around me on my birthday, I could run into it and nothing would happen. Well, I ran into the midst of it all and stopped, feeling like I had crossed the boundry-line. It felt as though I was disturbing some holy and sacred ritual when the glorious winged cutnesses didn't fly. I held my breath and they erupted around me. They circled me and I let go of my breath in one big and awed sigh. I felt as though I was the DragonQueen. Heck, why not? I mean, butterflies were just as great as dragons and the dragonflies had to be named for something. Then, they landed all around me and on me, wherever they could go, and I wouldn't go inside until later that night. But before I went inside, it got dark and all the guests left. I said buy from the backyard of course. I was alone then with my parents watching me sit with the dragonflies and butterflies when the fireflies came out. Fog drifted in and there was a cresent moon above. The strange thing about the fireflies that came into the scene is that they liked to light their butts for a rather long period of time. Around fifteen seconds. It looked like lanterns in the night with a soft glow from the moon and little flying sillouettes, light as leaves. I fell asleep in the grass around midnight, when my parents found the oppertunity to carry me up to my bed. The next morning I found a butterfly, two dragonflies, a bunch of fireflies, and some leaves stuck in my clothes and hair from the night before. They were real, so I knew that my majyckal night amoung the majesties were real, too. Heh... I read over it and it sounds like a faerie tale. :lmao: I'm such a loser.

That's the night that your picture reminds me of. I'll give you the link when I'm finished, and I will also give you the credit of the overal inspiration of the picture. I'll also put a link down to your page if you want me to. :nod:
Thanks for clearing my artist's block, too! :hug:

Oh my goodness, that sounds like it was such a wonderful experience!!! -envy-! I wish I could've seen that ;3;!! I've never even seen a real firefly before...they don't really appear much in the city, I guess :(. And all those butterflies and dragonflies...what a wonderful sight that must have been!! ;3;!! Thanks so much for sharing that inspirational tale x3!! (BTW, you're a really talented writer xD! I really felt the mood of the night from your description.).
:heart:!
And that sounds great! Can't wait to see it and have fun with it! ^w^! <3

Yes, it only made the day feel much more wonderful. It's amazing that it happened on my birthday, too.
And I hope you don't envy me as much as you stress. I'm not that great really. I bet you'd love it out in the suburbs if you want to see fireflies and butterflies, so just take a trip and you'll find that really, having that experience isn't that great. It feels great, but a lot of people around the parks and woods see wildlife all the time. Wild life makes me feel like a princess, though. ((Not a pink princess. More like a black/gray/white spiderweb-like princess.))

You're welcome. <3 I'm not sure how it inspired you, but I hope you enjoyed reading it. I mean, I don't want to bore you or anything. I do type a lot.
-blush- Thank you. I definately wasn't expecting that.
Hee hee. <3 Thanks for being so nice to me. A bunch of people I don't know but try to be nice to and comment seem to not like me for some reason. :? I really do try my hardest though! TT..TT I appreciate your kindness.

D8 That's so weird! I absolutely LOVE people who comment on my work, especially those who are friendly and write really long, well-thought out ones like you did ;3;. :heart:! I only wish I had the time to reply to every comment I get D:! <3333 :hug:

Yays! You should always take a camera around to try and get a pic. It's hard cuz they're here to there in a split second, but when they stay still, they can hover for a VERY long time. I wish you luck on finding your dragonflies!

What's weird? I forget what we were talking about. TT..TT

I love commenting on work, but it gets my nerves on end when I am commenting on someone's work I don't know. It was really amazing that you replied so increadibly warmly, and it was quite a releif.
And giving long, thought-out anything is what I do. I like to think things out and give people an opinion that has a good base so they actually believe me instead of making them wonder where I am getting my thoughts on their work. I think it's a little shallow when you don't think through a peice of art and just say 'nice' or 'great job.' It shows you didn't look at all the detail, all of the amazing work that the artist did. It's the details that makes something look good, right? So why not look at the details, too?

Ha ha, and if you don't have time, you don't need to reply. I understand. My idol said that, too. (*neondragon)
