Gathering In The Forest Pg 7 (2007) by LaNora-84 Gathering In The Forest Pg 7 (2007) by LaNora-84
Favorite by LumiResources


I drew this in my last year of college back in 2007. I graduated shortly after it was drawn.
It was drawn on BFK Rives paper with Speedball black ink and a Hunt # 102 crow quill pen. It was colored with Prismacolor colored pencils. It took about 12 hours to finish.

Clever Fox, Wise Owl, the Triplet Skunks (Sniff, Whiff and Whoof), Flick the Squirrel, Bandit and Sleuth the raccoon brothers, and Mrs. Nimble the hare are depicted here in "The Gathering in the Forest". 

The forest creatures gathered in one place and looked for the river and couldn't find it anywhere as the thunder storm from the night before had caused many trees to fall and dam the river. While they are all looking around, they wake Wise Owl and he comes out of his home in his old tree, stops at his favorite perch and asks them, "What is all this ruckus about?" They tell him that they can't find any water and ask him for his help.

Amazing, love the other drawings as well. The way you draw the trees and animals is amazing :D. the whole setting with the animelas reminds me a bit of The Animals of Farthing Wood which I watched as a child :D. (this: www.youtube.com/watch?v=_MaFL8… :)

;P hahaha.... yes, I've been told by a lot of people about The Animals of Farthingwood :D
Unfortunately, it was not shown in America, so I missed out on it as a kid :(

I think I will be catching up on it someday soon, though :heart:

Thank you very much, sweetheart, for the sweet words :hug:

Ah too bad that they didnt show it in America. I don't remember everything of it. Only that it also shows how humans break down nature and chase animals away from their habitats. No thanks :)!
