Heaven's Keys by purplekecleon Heaven's Keys by purplekecleon
The Heaven's Keys are a set of islands on the continent of Owel. The islands are mostly abandoned.

This is Nip during a part of his journey in which he has to trudge through a nasty swamp on one of the islands.

Some of the trees look like they have a face (one of them looks like it has a T-Rex head with multiple eyes :o). It looks a bit scary, but is very beautiful!

This reminds me of a sad dream I had where my cat had to live in a terrible damp place.
It's beautiful though, your style is amazing~

am i the only one who sees the monster mouth? it is next to the sun/moon. it kind of looks like that slime is trying to capture her.

Wait, isn't this the flower cat that got mutated?

Love it!

This is awesome! Love how Nip is cautiously finding his way through the swamp -- all the while keeping a look out for anything which may be lurking about, in this seemingly unfamiliar landscape!

I don't wish to offend you, and I don't mean this in a rude or mean way, but this picture scared the shiz out of me O.O'

Reminds me of snow white.

I think "nasty" is an understatement there; you really portrayed the stickiness and grimness of the swamp really well there. The colours - sickly-greens and browns, with a dash of red - really convey the idea that the swamp is not exactly a healthy or safe place to be in. Making some of the tree branches look like abstract formless monsters just adds to that creepy feel you have going on here.

Great work!

That looks so creepy and awesome~! I like it!

Great scene. I like all of the details. The BG's amazing.
Toumorokoshi Featured By Owner Aug 6, 2010  Student General Artist
Wow... I like your way of drawing trees :love: Here they look so "stalking"! (You made me search that word on the online spanish-english translator :XD:) And the water is really good too. I love Nip's fur, I wanna hug him :la:
Pana-sonic3D Featured By Owner Aug 2, 2010  Hobbyist Artist
Good luck, Nip. ^w^
Venty-chan Featured By Owner Aug 2, 2010
I love the contrast between him (with the moonlight falling on him) and the rest of the swamp wich is very dark. All your drawings have an amazing color combination and this one is no exeption! I also like the way you draw fur,you make it look really soft :heart:

MBLOCK Featured By Owner Jul 27, 2010  Hobbyist Digital Artist

atomiccatz Featured By Owner Jul 26, 2010
It looks as though the swamp wants to eat her, or that could be just my imagination. ;o;

IamLD Featured By Owner Jul 26, 2010
Very swampy yet with a nice blend of fantasy
the colours and spacing is thick yet spread with a chaotic evenness thats worth recognition in itself
the fungi is really interesting and the abience of the whole thing is rock solid creepy swamp gold.

it pulls off what i think you were aiming for
so nice work
keep it up :)
