Faeren and Snoots -watercolor by Saimain Faeren and Snoots -watercolor by Saimain
A little watercolor rendition from last year of Faeren with his enchanted little pet Snoots. I originally painted this in color because I needed the practice (I still need the practice!), but then decided that I didn't like it. It looks better in greyscale. :)

after looking at some of your work, i ask myself how come i havent seen any of this as a DD?
Saimain Featured By Owner May 26, 2010  Professional General Artist
DDs have to be suggested to the mods by viewers, and each mod has their own rules for what they will and will not feature. They're also probably backlogged by hundreds of suggestions, so getting any image noticed is an accomplishment. But thank you for the thought! It was very sweet of you. :)
juicethehedgehog Featured By Owner May 26, 2010  Student General Artist
yeah i understand, and my pleasure i guess lol. i really like your work, my friend suggested that i check your stuff out and she wasnt wrong, youre stuff is pure awesome! your stuff will eventually sooner or later get a DD. that's for sure lol

I'm planning to do a fanart of Faeren if you don't mind so i wondered what colour is Snoots's fur? ^_^

btw, i was just admiring your art again and remembered that i'm here thanks to you :) 2 years ago i followed a link from your site and it brought me here, so thank you ) and i adore the way you paint forests. You have the most beautiful forests for sure, i wish i would get this close to perfection one day.
Saimain Featured By Owner May 29, 2009  Professional General Artist
Aw, thank you! That's very sweet of you, and I wish you the best with your artwork. :)

Snoots is white with brown eyes and a bit of orange tinge on her eartips, paws, and tail.

yumeoibito-chan Featured By Owner Jul 22, 2008
Saimain, I just found out from CoreyBee that one of the drawing that I took from the internet was your sketch. And I put it on my DA gallery to practice my color... :((

I'm sorry... do u mind if I put em? But I explain that the artwork wasn't mine. I'll put additional info that the artwork was yours. If you mind I will erase 'em from my gallery.

btw, I LUUUVV YER ARTWORK! Thanks to CorayBee I found yer id and I'll be yer watcher now :)

Saimain Featured By Owner Aug 1, 2008  Professional General Artist
I would like you to take it down, yes. I don't mind at all if you color my work for fun or practice, but please don't post the images online afterward. ^__^;

And you found this image offered as a free calendar? *confused*
yumeoibito-chan Featured By Owner Aug 6, 2008
yeah, i did.
it was long time ago. honest. when i click to dwld there was a folder contained about 5-7 of yer works and iw wasn't from your deviantart gallery. that's why i dunno who made the art.

i guess u should investigate bout it, incase someone has using yer images for free dwld or somethin'.

amazing! i just viewed the pencil drawing of faeren with the mistress of illusion, your work is beautiful.
i assume snoots isnt a real animal? i mean, more of a fantasy type creature?
cause if thats a real animal i want one :D

you've got great talent. the contrast on his lips is very good, ive noticed lots of people sometimes ignore the shadows on facial detail but yeah this is just wow. :D

Saimain Featured By Owner Apr 8, 2008  Professional General Artist
Thanks! Yeah, she's...I'm not exactly sure what she is, lol. Part cat, part fox, part squirrel/rabbit? I have no idea, actually.
