 :o Amazing! Your proficiency really is astounding! Great setting and look at those two! You even put in a little nick in Bearclaw's ear! Haha, one might argue that it is the start of a pretty dangerous bond, though.  ;)
Would you like elaborate on the creation process?

This is special! Another fresh style/concept for the calendar. I love how year after year you show a new side to your creativity.

Wow! I'm with Treefox, please elaborate! I can almost hear the sounds of the night, and Bearclaw glugging away.

Seems like Pike might be a secret child of Bearclaw... ;) Ever-present dreamberries. Even the light seems to have a slightly violet touch here and there. It has something of a photo to it, or some rendering with textures and filters. Well, looking closer I am sure it is a rendering. Ah, I wish I had time for Blender.
They look fairly relaxed with their moonlight picnic. Bonded to Dreamberries? Bonded via the love for Dreamberries? Bonded with each other and just sharing dreamberries? Who knows. :)

Thanks guys! I'll probably do a breakdown post with WIPs so it makes more sense at some point but here's the short version:

jaRf is right, it is a render. I just painted over it at the end because I ran out of time  :lol I decided to try some new programs and that was pretty timeconsuming. The characters are made in Maya & zbrush, their clothes in Marvelous Designer. Hair, fur, trees, and grass etc in xgen. It's rendered with Arnold and the final paintover was done in Photoshop. Because I took so long to mess around with xgen and MD, I had to skip all of the cool compositing, shading and texturing I’d envisioned lmao. It’s amazing that I work with 3D every day and I still manage to vastly underestimate projects like this. I learned a ton along the way though and even if the scope wasn’t quite right, it was a lot of fun!

The "photograph" feels to this makes it very intriguing.  You have too look twice, and then you stare at all the wonder and magic this scene evokes.  So different, so new.  And just plain wonderful as an addition in style and fun to the Calendar.  Variety also makes good sparks!
