Inheritance by deskridge Inheritance by deskridge
A brown forest mouse pokes his head out of his home. He lives in a moss covered human skull on that sits among a few mossy stones and a bunch of colorful mushrooms. The mouse's home was originally not his, of course. He inherited from the previous owner, who apparently did not come to a good end. Perhaps the skull's new inhabitant will do better.

Note: this scene uses purchased content.

Tools used: Daz Studio w/ LookAtMyHair (mouse and skull), Poser (Mushrooms), Vue (everything else + rendering), GIMP (Post production)

Resources: 
Daz (where to get characters, clothes, hair, and fur tools): www.IntrovertArtist.com/Daz
Vue (for building the scene and rendering): www.IntrovertArtist.com/Vue
GIMP (an open source alternative to Photoshop):  www.IntrovertArtist.com/Gimp

Thanks for looking!
Daniel

Looking at this again, it also reminds me of the classic 1939 cartoon, "Peace On Earth," where [spoiler alert] cute little forest animals build homes for themselves from the leftover war materiel after mankind succeeds in killing itself off in a war. Excellent work.

This is a beautiful little house nice for this mouse.
The lighting effects are really well done, but I must admit that I agree with ExquisiteIllusions about the ears.
Otherwise your creation is gorgeous, congratulations.

Very well done. I love the skull and the grass texture on the image. The only critique I would give that was easily noticeable for me is that the mouse's ear should be a little transparent somewhere(because it has so much light coming down onto it) as opposed to totally opaque. Other than that, great image!

This is so beautiful. I keep imagining what happened to the owner of the skull before the mouse took residence :) There are so many stories in this picture.
