Cold Shiver Nixie



Yet another magical creature has come out of hiding to request my artistic skills this week. And since this Illustration Fridays subject is 'Dreams', the Cold Shiver Nixie is a perfect fit !

Have you ever been daydreaming during an idle moment and had a quick vision of flying like an eagle over a snow covered mountain range ? Or had a vision of plunging feet first into a cold and pristine forest stream ? Or even a vision of a midnight outing to dance naked under the moon ?

Bet you got some goose bumps, didn't ya ?
That means you were probably visited by Kalamazoo's very own Cold Shiver Nixie! She will sneak up behind you while you are daydreaming, and she will tickle you with her cold fingers up and down your back.

Brrrrrrrrrr !!!
:-D

Thanx anonymous (not to be confused with Anonymous from Australia ) !

I had fun doing the hair, I wanted it to be kind of an icy electric style.

You know what Isay, she is actually sneaking up behind you and is currently reaching forward with her icy fingertips to tickle your back !

Eeeeeek !!!

Don't jump too much ! Or she might tickle your back again !
:-D

You're very welcome, Veronica ! Maybe It's just me that can see the kitty, what do you see in that cloud ?

Very clever! You have quite a cadre of characters waiting in the wings. Actually the "Cold Shiver Nixie" snuck up on me yesterday afternoon... what a jolt...I was almost dreaming in the sun when she crept up and BANG! there we were face to face!

She's a sneaky one, Ginger. Her soft footstep has allowed her to tickle the most hyper-alert individuals.

You were probably on her list of 'someone who needs a tickle'. It's a long list, good thing she moves fast !
ZOOOOM !!!

:-D

What's that? Nixon has his cold fingers on my back? Never mind, you're probably too young to remember that other trickster. Love the story, Steve.

Very cool! I like her feathery outlines. And I love the dreams you described. I'm getting chills right now...there she is!

Oh, I remember enough about old Nixon, Mick. I was young but his legacy was widespread and notorious. Funny how he became a popular celebrity again just before he died.

I guess Americans have th' attention span of a flea on crack.
The thought of Nixon gives me bad shivers too!
:-D

Thanx Carla. Yeah, I wanted her to look kinda like a heat mirage (like steam coming out of a boiling pot, it distorts your view slightly).

See Carla, the Cold Shiver Nixie is a busy gal !
:-)

you cannot scare me anymore steve because i think she's with me all the time esp. when i am about to sleep in the night!

Cool hair !!

 
At 5:29 PM, Blogger Anonymous said...

*Brrrrrrrr* I LOVE her hair but her eyes are very creepy. Well done showing her movement and love the contrast between heat mirage and icy shiver *BRRRRRR*

oooooo, creepy! you're going to give me nightmares steve! but it doesn't take much:D she should fire her hairdresser! haha...

cheers,
kerry

OH NO Kerry! She has GREAT hair!!!

And here I thought it was the peppermint patty vixen.

 
At 8:19 AM, Blogger steve said...

I hope I haven't scared you in the past, Isay. Although if you want, I can try !

Hmmmm. Monsters, where did I put all those monsters...?
:-D

 
At 8:20 AM, Blogger steve said...

Thanx Rowantree! I like her hair too!
:-)

 
At 8:23 AM, Blogger steve said...

Well, Anonymous, her eyes are like that because she likes to stay where it's cold most of the time so she needs a protective second covering over her eyes.

That way her eyes won't dry out or freeze!
And the hair was fun!

 
At 8:25 AM, Blogger steve said...

Wait Kerry! I didn't mean to give you bad dreams!

Just think happy thoughts! Like ice cream, *Brrrrrr*. See, cold shivers and no nightmares!
:-D

 
At 8:26 AM, Blogger steve said...

Don't forget AWESOME hair, Anonymous!
:-D

 
At 8:28 AM, Blogger steve said...

Ooooo! That's a fantastic idea, Janey! Too bad Miss Patty from those TV commercials didn't show up. I coulda made a double model illustration of cold shivery twins!

:-D

 
At 8:52 AM, Blogger Anonymous said...

AWESOME and absolutely fabulous hair!

 
At 9:57 AM, Blogger steve said...

Yes !!!
:-)

 
At 11:30 AM, Blogger Bertha said...

Wow, that is some awesome hair! She's cute and horrifying at the same time! Perfect!

 
At 1:05 PM, Blogger Tony LaRocca said...

Far too often I'm visited by her cousin, the Embarrasing Memory Shudder Pixie

 
At 1:09 PM, Blogger Kymberlee said...

She's great, s! I love her hair and the eerie expression her face. You know, for a cold shiver nixie, she's pretty hot!

 
At 5:27 PM, Blogger steve said...

Hiya Bertha ! Yeah, I wanted her to look kinda alien but in a beautiful way so that she evokes the whole shuddering ideal.

I hope that made sense!

 
At 5:29 PM, Blogger steve said...

Oooooo ! I'm quite familiar with the Embarassing Memory Shudder Pixie, Tony ! I've gotten many visits from her !

:-D

 
At 5:36 PM, Blogger steve said...

I agree, Kymberlee! She's got that Ethereal beauty that is terrifying to behold. After all, why wouldn't she look like that when she has the power to evoke those Mini Orgasms ( or Minigasms ) that travel from the top of your scalp to the soles of your feet ?

Brrrrrrrr !!!
Mmmm. That's fun !
:-D

 
At 12:17 AM, Blogger Aravis said...

Ah, now this is a creature I know well. Here and gone but fun while she's around. You caught her likeness well! *G*

 
At 6:13 AM, Blogger steve said...

She's a quick lil' thing, isn't she ! Thanx for the visit, AravisArwen !
:-)
