Pandalah Harmony by Ashalind Pandalah Harmony by Ashalind

My entry into RARE 2010: The Unusual Anthro Calendar which depicts some of the less common species of anthros. Our website is under construction, but feel free to visit it anyway.

The Anthro Calendar

Photoshop and Painter.
I feel like about 100 hours went into this, but I lost count somewhere along the way, so who knows. :P
I will have to render it out again in CMYK for print, because it's turned out a bit dark. The blacks are too black, but it's just a matter of tweaking. I may add a few extra details while I'm there.

EDIT: I have fixed the colour issue (hopefully) and have given some light to the legs on the front panda. We'll see if it's any good when I do a test print.

pandas are my all time favorite animal! this piece is really beautiful with the lighting, shading, and how you did the textures of everything, but if i may say something without any hard feelings or getting anyone upset. I played the flute for 7 years in band and i noticed that they were holding the flutes backwards. the flute points out to your right when playing it not the left. again, i'm not saying this to make anyone upset, just thought it could help if you ever decide to use it for future reference ^^. still a beautiful job though. love your work :)

Well, after Kung-fu Panda, it would be a shame for the Panda anthros to still remain scarce :D

Very unusual - very lovely; it conveys very nice action but has a serene, tranquil feel as well.

I like this picture! The atmosphere in this piece is just so lively and upbeat! Makes me feel very happy! It makes the art feel like it is just full of joy, celebration and giddy happiness, which is good. Seems like you were in a good mood when you painted this piece! :+favlove:

what "panda"monium?

Looks really cool! I've heard of that calender; a lot of great artist are attending:) I really like the composition of this and the fact that their flutes are made of bamboo. Lots of little details like the golden kinda coins in the belt of the front bear really finish this work. A great piece, keep it up:aww:
