Panda Nordanner incoming! From this pretty couple: 6174 AS Abstruse x 5171 Aurifer Luna. Thank you *kalmanen for making this Panda baby happen! :love:

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. :D

One of my favorite pictures of yours so far.
I love the bright but still smooth colors especially the green. Reminds me of a fresh green of Spring ^-^
When everythings blooming and the days getting longer and the sun's getting warmer :3
I also like the small details of the grass and the trees.
The characters were drawn also very well.
You've really got much better in drawing backgrounds! You put more and more details in them and the coloration is getting smoother everytime. (:Just great.
Can't wait to see more of your pictures :3

Yay, thank you very much! :huggle:
I am really happy to hear that you like my backgrounds; I know I still have lots of work with them but I am hopefully getting there slowly. ^^

Ihanasti olet saanut aikaan aasialaista tunnelmaa taustalla!. Erityisesti bambupöheiköt ja nuo pilvet ovat omiaan tehtävään :giggle:

Kiitos paljon! :heart:
Bambut on must kun yrittää tehdä jotain aasilaista (huraa kliseille), mutta noi pilvet on aika kaukana kuvan muusta tyylistä, eli jäivät vähän irrallisiksi... :XD:
Noh, täytyy tutkailla lisää aasialaista taidetta ja kulttuuria, josko sieltä irtoais muutakin kuin kiinalaisten ravintoloiden vakiokuvituksia.
