Soft & Fluffy Nekomimi Mode Gallery

Sep 9, 2011 @ 14:46 CST


Another collective of artist works aimed at the otaku with furry fetishes – assorted alluring females fitted with the ever-popular accessory nekomimi as well as intriguing outfits of sukumizus, pantsu, and lingerie.

Not the sexiest of the bunch, however certainly one of the most artistically defined nonetheless. The image above is quite basic in terms of technique – yet it is also this simplicity which makes it quite well done. Rather than a visually enticing sight devised through use of conventional eye-candy, the artistic heavily made use of informal balance and contrast to demand viewer interest.

One is immediately drawn to her face upon gazing at the artwork as she has but a single eye open – her hair also differs on each end, and not to mention, her hand is not an identical position as the other. Looking more closely at the hair, the number of strands vary on either side and are generally uneven – this total lack of symmetry found throughout the focal point easily drives attention towards her as it captivates the mind and eyes of the viewer.

Her skin is a soft pale neutral tone which seems to be a variant of her hair’s beige hue – thereby keeping contrast minimal against components of herself, as well as offering a very relaxing easygoing sight. One can notice the tan outline composing her figure most prominently around the bottom portion of her head. Value is hardly implemented on her neck – doing much in regards to consistency of the light source. As her face appears fully lit up, we can assume light is coming forth from our end.

We can best see within her eye the sketched effect of the image originating from the varying streaks of different value. Her hat seems to have been smoothed out – it boasts a lavish dark chocolate color diverging in shadow all around according to the light source.

The harmonic use of colors is seen yet again in her milk chocolatey blouse as she sports a stylishly patterned shirt with alternating stripes of lighter and darker tones. The buttons are small dabs of a cream coated white which expertly implies a glass composition. She has a yellow ribbon which stands out rather subtly, serving as another example of the asymmetrical balance. The scarf draped around her neck also refers back to the recurring use of alike colors found in the artwork.

Shadows are nicely seen in consideration of angles, light, and positioning – one can see a successful attempt at depth as the area above her breasts proves to be lighter, whilst it is accordingly darker underneath them.

Vividly radiating from her hat are a pair of sunflowers which obviously take the first helping of eyefare before her visage as lights come forward whilst darks recede. Another final touch is the speckled layer of intermittent foreground/background consisting of what is presumably semi-transparent confetti.

The masterful use of the balance design principle is one which is responsible for this work’s magnificent display of unity – repeating elements are spread through the image in a matter of variety expected of a skilled artist.

Feel free to enjoy the remaining kitty eared cuteness below:
