A Peahen in a Pear Tree by AlfaFilly A Peahen in a Pear Tree by AlfaFilly
Okay, so it's not a pear tree, but close enough!

My gift exchange for ~OpheliazBloodyMary from =SinisterEternity's Secret Santa! Her characters Nyu Wu the Peahen, Jubei the goat, and Jiyu the rabbit. I don't know if Jiyu was actually included in the list but I wasn't sure and wanted to add her anyway cause she looked adorable. xD

I found it kinda ironic that I got a choice to do a goat character considering my previous year's comic work involving a goat character (aka Chordata) so I couldn't not choose her! And she's really quite lovely. I enjoyed her the most, and learning about her as a character. I'd also never drawn a peafowl before so that was intriguing, but fun.

I hope I didn't mess their personalities up too bad. I did a good deal of gallery stalking but I likely still missed things (mostly with Nyu Wu). Either way, hope you enjoy! :heart:

Merry Holidays and Happy Decemberween! <3

Also, I freakin' love drawing trees >8U So. Much.
And even though it has it's share of flaws, I do want to say that I would love critiques/tips if you have any. I haven't really specified lately that I'd like them, but I just wanted to let everyone know to not be shy about it. I'd love to continue improving. C:

Nyu Wu is not amused.

Maybe if you put a crown on her head she'd feel better about being stuffed in the tree?

It's really well done, although I do have one problem with it - Jiyu has no whiskers on one side. It just irks me ^^'

Well she needs to get in the Christmas spirit and be happy about it >8C

Maybe someone should dress her up as Santa! That would be glorious.

Oh, I've always done whiskers like that. xD They always just kinda hover there on the side of their face haha
Grassy-Aggron Featured By Owner Dec 27, 2011  Hobbyist Writer
Heh, something tells me she wouldn't be happy XD

Nah, I meant that she appears to be missing them on one side entirely ^^'
AlfaFilly Featured By Owner Dec 31, 2011  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Likely not xD

Yeah I've always done that too. xD Like, er... here [link] I used to do it because the other whiskers would disrupt the features of the face. Sort of a stylistic choice. I've been thinking about changing it, but it's a hard habit to break it seems ^^;

Ah, I remember that page.

Yeah, I've always noticed that. It irks me and my minor OCD XD And habits are hard to break XP I can't stop myself from going to bed at 3 in the morning. ARG.
