Commission finished a couple days ago for Kikivuli and Utunu! This is a follow up piece for the other large illustration I did for them, “The Final Moments” - https://www.weasyl.com/submission/37586
After a successful hunt and a fulfilling meal, the pair settle down around a warm fire and break out their favorite instruments for a fireside story. Retelling the day’s exploits through each note played, the fire before them wreathing into pictoglyph representations of the action. Their flame selves chase the gemsbok across the path of the milky way as the high spirited song plays!
