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. :)

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.

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.

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'.

earth-bound-angel Featured By Owner Apr 5, 2008  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
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.
xxindescribablexx Featured By Owner Jun 20, 2008
Oh I see, so you made her up? I had been wondering this too. You just combined a bunch of cute animals together. Cool idea! I want a part cat/fox/squirrel/rabbit pet type thing :(
Kanesuke Featured By Owner Apr 4, 2008
OooOOooH.... I like the boy: he looks so peacefull and the squirrel's nice (although squirrels are like rats with fluffy tails O_o)
Saimain Featured By Owner Apr 4, 2008  Professional General Artist
Thank you, but she's not a squirrel. :)
Kanesuke Featured By Owner Apr 10, 2008
srry for calling her a squirrel, it just looked like it...

JessMcNoodle Featured By Owner Apr 3, 2008
love the idea, just beautiful (and sad) not seen 'toots' as the pet, hehe cuteness. how do you keep from smudging as you do your bigger pieces, that is one annoying problem of mine and the main reason i never submit my drawings here :/
Saimain Featured By Owner Apr 3, 2008  Professional General Artist
I keep my hands clean, I turn the paper a lot when working in details, and I use an eraser quite frequently. ^__^
JessMcNoodle Featured By Owner Apr 4, 2008
haha yeah, thanks for replying. ill keep it in mind. keep up the fantabulous work!!!

Chaobaby7 Featured By Owner Feb 10, 2008
This is adorable, did you create this character and are their some stories about him? He is so beautiful, a fairy person? I love his little pet Snoots he looks like a Devon Rex cat with even bigger ears than a typical Devon Rex. Wonderful. :heart:

Saimain Featured By Owner Feb 10, 2008  Professional General Artist
Yes, Faeren is a personal character of mine, and very important to my artwork and writing. You can find more about my fantasy books on my website if you're interested. :)
Chaobaby7 Featured By Owner Feb 11, 2008
Oh I will be doing that, I love fantasy stories, fairies, elves, witches etc etc. who is the beautiful character in your avatar? Do you have books published of your stories and art work?
Saimain Featured By Owner Feb 11, 2008  Professional General Artist
Yes, you'll find my published work on my website. And the character in my avatar is Luke, from this painting: [link]
Chaobaby7 Featured By Owner Feb 12, 2008
They are such beautiful characters, I love your website by the way, Snoots looks like my Devon Rex cats.
