Fire of my soul by MinnaSundberg Fire of my soul by MinnaSundberg
::If you take a full view I'll give you an imaginary cookie::

Bwah, I haven't painted anything at all in over a month! Thats's right, nothing at all, not a single little scrap, before this. Why? Well, I got my grades a few weeks ago, and I'm definitely not statisfied. I mean, how am I supposed to get into...um, what is it called in Enlish? Upper secondary school? Probably not, but to wathever school you go to after ninth grade, if I go and get LOWER grades on my second last term? (I guess my teachers finally decided to go and get pissed at my constant lack of concentration and that I'm drawing when they talk. This year I've had five teachers screaming at me, the previous eight years one.^^')
So, I decided to work my ass off with school work and skipp painting, at least until 24. 4, because that is when my admission interview or wathever is and I finally get to know how high grades I'm supposed to have. :3

So the picture then, eh? Well, I have no inspiration because off all the stress, so it's just something simple, a practise of fur-painting actually. It was supposed to be a dragon, that's why she is able to breath fire (yeah, that's fire, believe me or not) and I have no idea at what part she turned into a gryphon. She just did. Anyvay, I really put a lot of effort into this, and I actually like the outcome more than I thought I would. Hope you guys do so too. ^__^

Sorry, you may not know me. *wave* But I was browsing around some tutorials and found your account.

Just letting you know I'd forever worship you if you made a fur tutorial. (If you haven't already, that is.)

This is so inspirational it just sparked me. I can't put it into words.

This is beautiful. The fur and feathers are wonderfully done. I am especially fond of the little details you put in, like the leaf-and-vine hairclip, and the little bird visible in the fire. Instant fav! Keep it up!
