Panda Nordanner incoming! From this pretty couple: 6174 AS Abstruse
x 5171 Aurifer Luna
. Thank you *kalmanen
for making this Panda baby happen! Panda
is my favorite of Nordanner mutation; I like its simplicity and it also tickles my imagination by giving so many possibilities for character development. I also like oriental aesthetics very much and I am planning on drawing this new baby in different Asian environments. I have to admit that my knowledge about differences between different Asian cultures is still rather hazy and cheesy but I hope to fix the situation by exploring the actual cultures while drawing backgrounds for this yet unborn character.
This is my very first deviation in 2014 so should probably say something constructive about the artwork itself... I tried to do a picture with less promined linework but I think this ended up being a weird mixture of having and not having lineart. I am still quite happy with it even if it didn’t end up looking like I originally planned. I hope you can recognize oriental influences from bamboos I threw there and from my pathetic attempt of drawing stylized clouds.
