Everything about it is so...cozy. Yes, that is the word, it has an essence of coziness and peace.
First of all, of course I love the creature, its wise all-knowing smile is epic and the overall face is just fascinating. I love its hair too, so beautifully wispy and soft like some sort of a curly bunny hair.
The hands and feet are amazing. I have long had a love for looking at and the giving of creatures humanoid hands, I think it gives off that a massive spark of whimsy that lets you know "There is something very special about this animal"
The girl is lovely too and I adore the look of comfort on her face, resting against her magical friend. I also really like the contrast between her handsome cocoa skin and dark clothing with the creature's white body.
Also, I have always had kind of a thing for magical trains and train rides so this piece works all in favor to make me feel incredibly happy. Lovely job!
thanks! just about everything you said holds true for me too. i also like adding humanoid hands to creatures, and i also have an affinity for train rides, haha. i guess there is something magical about barreling towards somewhere new at such speeds.
I love the strange demon! It's fingers look gross to touch, but at the same time it looks like that girl's noble guardian that nobody else can see. Just adore the stories that spring to mind when I look at this!
