Watching The Stars by Nimrais Watching The Stars by Nimrais
The last traditional piece I had in the EF artshow. Nothing fancy ... just two cheetahs enjoying the warm night and watching the stars. But it was my favorite piece and I enjoyed working on it so much. <3 Acrylics on bamboo paper.

absolutely beautiful.... I swear, my heart fluttered when I saw it... the delicate colors, the well executed mood, the flawless anatomy, and the gorgeous lighting all comes together in a brilliant composition... I really love the background, and how well you used to cool colors to depict a night scene, while still keeping the warm fur tones of the cheetahs in tact. everything from the lighter shades in the higher concentrations of stars, to the little silhouetted trees in the distance.... It's not too complex, yet it's stunning nonetheless... especially those wonderful shades of blue melting into the sky... it's amazing~ and as for the cheetahs... goodness, they are so very lovely. the markings are fantastic; I have yet to see any out of place... and the lighting on their fur is just too great for words... every fragment of moonlight is easily visible on both their figures, and painted in such a way that it looks natural, rather than being distracting from the picture as a whole. but what really got me... was the expressions. rarely is there a time in which an artist can successfully create animal's expressions into ones that are both expressive and fitting to the animal itself... in this, the viewer can clearly see the wonder and magic sparked behind their eyes, and the slight curves of the mouth that show a kind of joy aside the wonder. or maybe I am just over-thinking the whole thing, but it really is a brilliant piece, and I am so happy to have seen it! :love:

Two cheetahs stared at the night sky with their dawn coloured eyes. A spark was in the air. But neither pointed it out as they spotted different animals in the sky. For a while there was pin-drop silence.
Then one of the cheetahs spoke.
"Sure is a pretty sky..."
"Agreed, but..." replied the male cheetah with a purr.
The lady took her eyes away from the sky and faced the male. Who was clearly lost in something.
"But what?" She questioned.
"They aren't as pretty as you." he curled his tail around one of her claws and purred.

This is something I would want to hang on my wall. There's just something so charming about it. I guess it's because you put a lot love into it, since you enjoyed working on it.

What is this..."Bamboo paper"...That you mentioned?
