Free-For-All: Ring-Tailed Lemur


I really love how curious lemurs’ eyes look and I focused on that expression and idea through the bright stark orange of the eyes in this piece.


The FaunaFocus Free-For-All is an art competition that is open to all and is intended to foster community-based learning while celebrating successes and encouraging artists to improve from discipline and criteria.

November 2018’s Free-For-All featured the ring-tailed lemur.

Arvemis created a unified composition of a lemur resting on a tree branch. This digital illustration blended the warm brown tones of the lemur and branches with the cool tones of the foliage surrounding them to create a pleasantly calming color palette. With a dappled lighting effect, the entire scene was painted with a soft, warm light that highlighted the bright fur of the lemur. With a curled, striped tail, the lemur allows the viewer to focus on its detailed face, move down along the composition, and return to the main focal point.
