Collab: Flora and Fauna by kheleksul Collab: Flora and Fauna by kheleksul
Flora and Fauna: natural forces of the world that work in tandem to bring about the existance of all living beings. Under Flora, the plant kingdom - and under Fauna, the animal kingdom.


Collab with :iconhellebore:, that honestly came about because I love her sketches, and she loves my coloring, and one day we were like "LET'S MAKE BEAUTIFUL ART BABIES! 8DDD!" So she sent me the high-res's of her several of her sketches, and this is our first-born. *giggles* XD

My sister says that Fauna's pwning Flora, because there's much more fish than flowers. XD BUT IT'S NOT MY FAULT, I tried making flowers arching across the background, too, but.... they didn't seem to want to cooperate with me. x_x

WARNING! Carry on reading! Or you will die, even if you only looked at the word warning!
Once there was a little girl called Clarissa, she was ten-years-old and she lived in a mental
hospital, because she killed her mom and her dad. She got so bad she went to kill all the
staff in the hospital so the More-government decided that best idea was to get rid of her so
they set up a special room to kill her, as humane as possible but it went wrong the
machine they were using went wrong. And she sat there in agony for hours until she died.
Now every week on the day of her death she returns to the person that reads this letter, on
a Monday night at 12:00 a.m. She creeps into your room and kills you slowly, by cutting you
and watching you bleed to death. Now send this to ten other pictures on this one site, and
she will haunt someone else who doesn't. This isn't fake. apparently, if you copy and paste
this to ten comments in the next ten minutes you will have the best day of your life tomorrow.You
will either get kissed or asked out, if you break this chain u will see a little dead girl in your room

I love the concept and how everything worked out. Even though I usually don't like the orange-green color combination, this piece has really made me second think my stance. They're melded/coupled together so seamlessly.

jazzknh Featured By Owner Jun 9, 2007
:wow:I can't find words to describe how beautiful and original this is.
Nix0xiN Featured By Owner Jun 2, 2007
this is really beautiful. I especially love how you incorporated the foreground into the background, how you kinda inked-to-link them...the dress sashays into the orange and it gives it movement.

I saw the original lineart and you really made it come alive, you've used quite earthy colours which attract so much more than if they were like, PINK or YELLOW.

A rich, detailed piece with beautiful colors and an ornate passion for the uncommon. A uniquely traditional sentiment with an unusually modern flare. Wonderful work.

Man, if an artwork could snap a person out of a coma... this would be it. How many hours did the coloring take? x_X *dies from the awesomeness*
kheleksul Featured By Owner Jan 6, 2007
Mmmmm, I was going on and off of coloring, so I can't really say. ^^; See, I had the brilliant idea of coloring this during finals week. (Guess who didn't do too hot on her finals...? x__x) I'll keep better track next time. X3 <333

roxbaby Featured By Owner Dec 27, 2006
You two are wonderful people.
You two make beautiful babies. MAKE MORE... like quintuplets....xDDDD

kheleksul Featured By Owner Dec 30, 2006
BUT QUINTUPLETS COME OUT FOUR AT A TIME. If anything, we'd have to hold back some of our babehs, and shove them all out at the same time, so we can say that they're quintuplets! But THEN THAT WOULD BE LYING. DDDD8

I LOVE YOU TOO, ROXY-BABE! <3333 *nuzzlesluffs*
RennardX Featured By Owner Dec 27, 2006  Hobbyist General Artist
This entire picture is awesome. That giant fish (koi?) kinda scares me, but I guess it's her pet so she wouldn't be. lol.

The dress stands out a lot to me, the way the design comes off the dress and becomes a design of the picture, that's just sweet. I totally dig the colouring and lineart on this too.

Incredibly beautiful baby. XD Great work to the both of you. ^_^
