Sentinel by balaa Sentinel by balaa
Wow I am terrible at uploading things in a timely manner! I just came across this in my folders and realized I never uploaded it for some reason!

Some of you may have seen this at MFF 2016 as the mini program guide cover or in the art show. The kind folks of Furfest graciously invited my husband   Bagheera and myself to be guests of honor for the 2016 convention. We were beyond flattered and had an incredible time! Thank you again to all the magnificent MFF staff and volunteers who made this con one of our best, if not the very best, convention experience we have ever had!

2016 did not have a specific theme so of course that left only one obvious option, SNOW LEOPARDS and Tibetan things.

Thank you all for stopping by and looking!

The contrasts in textures, windswept grass and fur are very nice. I like how the character acts like a bridge between the sky and the earth sprinkling stars down as specs of snow. And those mountains, very crisp! If you don’t mind me asking what does the ribbon on the back of the character represent? (Are they wings?) And the little blue stone does it have a meaning or is it just for decoration/ornamentation?  Both the character and the temple with flags are very powerful and my eye jumps back from one to the other.

Hi there! Thank you so very much for the thoughtful energizing comment! I appreciate it so much! As to your questions, I think in the context the ribbons are decorative cloth, assuming it came undone a bit by the pull of the wind. The little blue stones are also a mirror of motifs used in Tibetan jewelry <:. Thank you again!
