-peaceful sundown- by ryukodragon -peaceful sundown- by ryukodragon
When an artist needs inspiration, they seek out their muse for guidance. Sometimes, however, even the muse can be distracted!

This began as a little sketch of Mew on a post-it while on hold for a call at work. And it just.. ballooned. XD I thought of calling this "California Dreaming", but that seemed too cliche. So I named it after one of Jan Hammer's songs - his music really does make me think of California!

I haven't done a digital painting like this since... well, probably ever! I followed this tutorial - [link] - for the watery effects, and I thank you! :D It's not the most refined piece of work, I'll be the first to admit.. but it does make me feel somewhat warmer in winter.

Can you tell I'm distracted? ^^;

Mew belongs to Nintendo, NiGHTS and Sonic and Amy belong to Sega!
