Secret Place by Kipine Secret Place by Kipine
After escaping from the animal testing laboratory, the rat has found new friends! A mazy bush forest hides many ponds and colorful fishes.

This was fun to do, I learned new things about my drawing process and how to add detail kinda quickly. Also this was the first time (I think) I created a color scheme before actually coloring the piece, and I've got to say that it works pretty well!

I started drawing this because I really wanted to paint clear water with cool fish in it. I've seen fairly often dreams about these clear ponds and awesome fish and many other creatures in them? And the cool thing about them is that they're not even in any tropical area, but like... in a forest pond in Finland. I'm probably going to draw about them more! There has been tiny aquarium like ponds and huge, deep water areas with huuuuge fish in them. 
These dreams have always been very nice and I've always liked them. I guess I just really like those kinds of things eheh, in real life I do get very excited even if I only see a tiny fish (or actually pretty much anything) in a lake or a river or whatever.

I love the whimsical feeling in this.  We have a group :iconthe-fanart-society: that has a folder for conceptual arts that this would be perfect for.  May we host this wonderful work?

I drew it, eh eh.
Could you specify your question a little bit? I drew this with Photoshop CC using a Cintiq Wacom tablet. I don't remember how long this took.

I love the story behind this! You should totally do a series about the lab rat's continuing adventures :)

Gorgeous color scheme - blue/orange is my favorite.

What you wrote in italics really hit me hard. I always feel for lab rats. I'm so glad this one managed to get away :'). This is really amazing artwork. 
Any chance I could use this as a background visual for a music video on my music channel? With credit of course - www.youtube.com/wasabiiid
