One word design: 2. Desiccate [Closed] by VogelSprache One word design: 2. Desiccate [Closed] by VogelSprache
Update!
I meant to add this in the description initially, but I have grown fond of this design. If the highest bid reaches $35, I will draw a matching chibi to accompany this artwork.


Update #2!
A few things:

-There is now an autobuy of $45. I meant to add this earlier in the week, augh.

-As there are several last minute bids, I'll clarify that the auction is planned to end today at 5:00 PM EST, provided the snipe guard doesn't come into effect or autobuy isn't taken.

-I have noticed that this design is pretty popular. While I'll never duplicate it or reuse the lines, those of you who don't win him may take some comfort in knowing I'll make more cat based adopts of this nature in the future.



Good luck to all of you! See you at 5.





A while ago I started this project. Early in the day, I use this awesome generator and get a word/definition. Then a few hours are spent reflecting on that word. A design based on it is (hopefully) completed by the end of the day.

This word was desiccate. (Typo in the image to be fixed soon)

Definition: To dry up to deprive or exhaust of moisture to preserve by drying as to desiccate fish or fruit

This one is a sphynx made of sandy skin, dry leaves, and of course with a little gooseberry lantern. All the glowing parts you see give off a sun-like warmth.

The design cannot be used for anything commercial, that is to say anything that will make you money. Other than that, I don't mind how the design is used.

Starting bid: $10 / 1000 :points:
Increment: $1 / 100 :points:
Autobuy: $45
Snipe guard: 30 minutes
End date: One week after the first bid

I am entirely at a loss. WOW, and thank you, everyone. ._. I didn't expect a DD for my current work, and definitely not for this. I'm (quite literally) floored by the comments and sheer amount of favs. Ginkgograffix, thank you in particular. I just...can't.

I thought those were called ground cherries. I don't think gooseberries have the papery shell around them. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Physalis b

The fruit or flower or what ever on the cat's tail. What is it called? I've been running into them quite a lot recently. By the way the art is really creative. The cat looks graceful.

I think it a berry actually, it's called physalis - they are really pretty in winter bouquets, when fully ripe: bright orange or even red berry is nested in net-like "lantern", good for Halloween too! :D

I agree with your opinion Thumbs Up, really interesting work~

I do indeed do humans. Humanoids (monsterlike) and anthros as well. I don't really have any examples of my humans right now...but I can say they're of similar detail to my animal designs.
