.:: A new day is rising ::. by Maiwenn
.:: A new day is rising ::.
Happy New year everyone!!! I am a dummy! 
May this one be full of joy, creativity, love and friendship! *Puts "My little pony"'s ost on*

This illustration has actually been done as a christmas gift for my sister who wanted a personalised puzzle. And she asked me for... Tanathin and the Passeur! :happybounce:

So, here they are! Tany and the Passeur are playing some kind of meditative game that is only possible to play at dawn (what else for sleepless nights regulars..? Wink/Razz  ) when the dew is there. The purpose is to form patterns on a drop from mosaics made with butterfly scales or pieces of beetles shells (which shiiiine). This is an activity to share while discussing more than a real game. The meditative aspect lies in the fact that as the water will evaporate, the mosaic will change. Each one has to adapt himself to the new pattern without fighting and to agree that in the end, it is always Mother Nature who has the last word on the final work.

About the bizarre stones on the floor, Tan and his friend are actually in a kind of cemetery.
The community of the high cliff doesn't bury their dead, it's insects which usually carry them away. Everyone mourns on its own way, but it's common practice to carve or to paint plates of stone or wood with... what everyone wants. Some draw a pattern that has meaning for them, others write the name of the deceased or outright tell a story or his feelings for the missing person, there is no constant. Often, these "stelaes" are entrusted to the passeur, who is the last doctor and untertaker of the community. Each Passeur has created differents cemeteries over generations and this one chose a place where the community's memory could watch the sunrise for eternity.

Otherwise, concerning insects, on the top left is the familiar of the Passeur, a burying beetle (nicrophorus vespillo). Behind Tanathin, his mount is a male Scorpionfly (Panorpa germanica) , which can't help but rummage in Tany's mosaics and to get them glued on the muzzle! =P (Razz) 
And wherever Tany goes, you will find ants. So, it is not very clear but one of them is lounging in lichen on the back, as a big cat, while another has its head patted by Tany's toes.

I always dreamed to paint some kind of big scene like this one and even though it has been reeeeeeeeeally long to complete, I'm really happy of the experience. It's the second illustration for which I use only gouache instead of Watercolor and I think I definitely fell in love with gouache. ;v;~:heart:

... and a lion who was flirting with the gazelle above with the most terrible jokes ever (which explains the lady's face, she wonders if she ought to laugh or to cry... XD; ).
What to say..? I draw horned people when I don't have inspiration..? 8D;
