Daily Deviation

Given 2005-07-05
As you walk through the woods you hear a lilting melody in the distance. Intrigued you begin to follow it, and then you notice that not only are you drawn to it, but all the wild life seems to be moving that way as well. You finally feel as if you are nearing the source as you make your way into a clearing and hear the full sweeping beauty of the Song of the Wild by Andrea Koupal.

Also viewable as our Print of the Day. ( Featured by lolly )

OH MY GOD YOU MADE THIS
I've seen that pic around the internet on celtic stuff pages but never knew the source until now.

Let me tell you I really loved that drawing since the first time I saw it, I literally fell in love with your  Cernunnos

I love this! A lot of the renditions of Cernunnos I've seen can be quite rough and boorish. It's nice to see a more elegant image of him. I also really like whimsical sense that the colours evoke. It's beautiful. Good job! :)

This your picture and beautiful, leaves me breathless.

It looks like this person is linking to the original art now, and while I didn't give them credit to use my art, I don't think it's too bad as is.

I was on Youtube and came across this picture on the video for Damh The Bard's "Noon Of The Solstice".
Someone had credited you in the comments, and I needed to come witness your art as a whole.

This is wonderful.

It's inspired from a custom flute crafted and played by David Carradine in the movie Kill Bill.

So that's where Blizzard got their Cenarius from, among other things. Mythology is amazing.... and so is this work. ;)

Fantastic textures all around... the snake looks smooth and his cloth looks... well, real in form and texture.

Thanks for bringing this to my attention. I've tried to comment to this person's Youtube channel but Youtube gives me an error message.

This person needs to at least give credit, my work is not clip art.
