Imagination by Culpeo-Fox Imagination by Culpeo-Fox
Was originally drawn for an exhibition (and yes, the little white critter is indeed inspired by the cute thing from "The Arrival" by Shaun Tan)

[...] Da seine Eltern und Spielkameraden seine Schreiberei belächelten, fühlte er sich unverstanden und wandte sich in seinen Schriften an ein Publikum aus Geistern. Für diese Geister schneiderte, formte, baute, malte und erträumte er eine Welt, in der jedes Wort, jedes Gefühl, jede Kreatur, jedes Ereignis, jeder Buchstabe und jeder Zufall am richtigen Platz standen. Und wenn sie einmal fertig gebaut wäre, diese Welt, fertig geschrieben und von Schreibfehlern und Stilbüten gereinigt, dann würde es schon kommen, sein Publikum, und sie mit ihm bewohnen. Eine Geisterwelt würde es sein, gebaut von einem Geist und bewohnt von vielen anderen Geistern. [...]

[...] Er konnte keine jagenden Wolken betrachten, ohne in ihnen die epische Geschichte eines Wolkenvolkes zu sehen. Kein rasendes Wasser ohne durchsichtige Märchengestalten darin. Keine Wiese, ohne dass ihm nicht gleich die Saga eines Geschlechtes von Grashalmen eingefallen wäre. Insekten umschwirrten ihn und erzählten ihm ihre kleinen Schicksale. [...]

I love the shadowing and the use of cross hatching coming from the pencil. The design up above is so neat! I almost thought the creature was a Night Fury at first because I've never read the book. You got me interested in it now, and I'll definitely have to get a copy of The Arrival :XD:. Beautiful artwork!
