so, i don't even really know how to start writing this description since it's a kinda unusual picture. :iconUtunu: approached me for a large scale picture a couple of weeks/months and since it's not something i've ever reeeeeally done i decided to give it a go (there were some larger scale pictures of course, but usually confined to about 3~4 characters maximum)
So, special thank you of course to Utunu and also everyone who participated!
And since i'm a renegade like that i also went ahead an nicked his short description blurb for the picture:
Every year, during the longest days around the summer solstice, tribes from all over collect at a common meeting ground.
News is shared, stories are told, goods are traded, friendships made and renewed, and for many this is a rare glimpse into the myriad tribes and cultures besides their own that share their world.
And all the characters from left to right(all FA usernames as usual. SOme might be found around here too):
Smokepaw(wolf) - displaying some leather
Nomax (painted dog) - observing the goings-on and thinking he looks far better in shoulder-fabrics than Utunu
SpotTheCat (cheetah) - inspecting the aforementioned leather
Clamcrusher (otter) - eating and chatting
Skips92 (king cheetah) - lounging and chatting
Utunu (painted dog) - posing for a woodcarving and wearing far more than he usually does
Bruma (Ethiopian wolf) - completing a transaction
Kalahari (African civet) - observing said transaction
CheetahLover (king cheetah) - the other party in aforementioned transaction
Keglunek (snow leopard) - the woodcarver sculpting a rare non-nude image of Utunu
Televassi (wolf) - observing the woodcarver at his work
Kikivuli (striped hyena) - also observing the woodcarver, and probably making disparaging comments about Utunu
Gnash.Hyena (spotted hyena) - bringing some furs and hides to trade
Stripetail (linsang) - wandering in, wondering what all the fuss is about
