Sketches n' WIP's
The top WIP started out as a bit of vent art. I was feeling (and still feel to a degree) very stressed with the change from being in college to being thrust into the real world. So I drew my optimistic fursona (L. Tatoba) consoling Sombra. There was something I liked about the look of the shaded characters in this flat looking universe so I saved a WIP that looked like this. I've painted up the background a little more since then but it still needs to some more work.
Second is a plan for a future fursuit. I knew I wanted to make a fursuit based on my literal Ratoratah design. But I didn't want to make a male Ratoratah. Yeah, making the mane might be fun but I wanted to make a more female version of the design for me. So I cut the mane back into a mohawk. Unlike most of the anthropomorphic animals that I draw, I decided I didn't want to add any body padding to this. So she has plantigrade legs instead of digitigrade ones. And I want to make the feet fairly small since I want the suit to be pretty form fitting. And yes, I want that tail to be dragging on the floor like that.
I'll make a better, turn around reference for her when I get closer to starting this project. I've got about 2 or 3 ahead of this one. She's kinda on the back burner for other costumes (depending on what I want for the conventions I'm going to).
