The Fox Bride by luciole The Fox Bride by luciole
There is a scene in Akira Kurosawa's movie Dreams that has stuck in my head since the first time I watched it. It is the first chapter where a little boy was stealing glances at a fox wedding procession, which is forbidden to humans and only takes place in a sun shower. It is a strange scene but I find it oddly inspiring and lovely.

Made as a tutorial painting for Digital Artist Issue #22: [link]
Go get it if you wanna see the process for this :)!

The Fox Bride by *luciole has warm colours and a beautiful design that reminds me autumn. A perfect artwork to say hello to Fall! ( Suggested by rydi1689 and Featured by Atramina )

I love that scene in that movie, and I adore kitsune. :D Lovely colours and atmosphere as usual, there definitely is magic in the air.

Oh my! I've seen that movie!! What a sad and yet very Japanese ending. The blizzard on the mountain one was just plain confusing.. The post apocalyptic ones were disturbing and yet very cool.
