Cassidy by ZiggyJ101 Cassidy by ZiggyJ101
Happy New Years! 

Just before we leave 2015 in our memories, I thought I would add one final milestone picture for the 2015 record; to send it out on a high! ^.^ 

This is Cassidy, the latest fursona of my good friend RosabelleCountryFox. I've always had a fondness for her characters and their personalities so I decided to make her a gift whilst trying new techniques out!
As you can probably tell, the character has been drawn in flat colours as I normally would, but this time I have applied the character to a scene, namely a sunset shoreline (one of my favourites too lucky), this was requested by her and I took up the challenge!
I took a brief informal lesson from KatieHofgard on silhouette lighting effects on characters from observing a few pictures and came up with this! I'm so proud of it >w<

It's been years since I've painted a background landscape and I'm so glad I gave it another spin, this is the most beautiful thing I have ever conceived - I am sure of it!

Thank you very much for looking, I hope you like it! ^.^

Her smile is warm, her eyes even more so.

She wears a dog tag. Possibly her own, possibly a memento, but I know better than to ask about it.

Tattoos - a heart and the crosses of a first-aid kit - stand out on her body. They imply she may have been a medic at some point or another, and that she's the kind who'll never give up on a person until the very end.

Her name is Cassidy. Pretty name for a pretty lady, yeah?

***

I won't deny it. This lovely portrait was very inspiring for me.

Why, thank you very much! ^.^

I love your perception of Cassidy, I'm glad to see that you wish to know more about the people in a picture, as I'm sure you already know; there's a lot you can tell about a person just by the small details about their appearance!

I'm afraid I'm not sure of all of it myself, I simply brought her creators wishes to life =3
Her tattoos may even be natural markings, or even be symbolical of a 'positive' nature in electrical terms! X3

I greatly enjoy pushing a characters personality out through expression of body and face - you should be able to look into her eyes and see a history!

That's a very true point you have their, and you've certainly succeeded in helping me deduce a possible history of hers.

Heh, "positive." Reminds me of a certain scene from Kid Icarus: Uprising.

(Dark Pit expresses disapproval of the real Pit's overly cheery behavior, so Pit and Palutena tell him their life philosophy)
"You gotta stay upbeat, upbeat, upbeat!"
"Or you'll be dead meat, dead meat, dead meat!"
"Like I said, annoying."
